tested positive for synthetic testosterone in an OOC test. Denies it via Twitter and is having his supplements "tested". Groundwork firmly in place. Douchebag.
Just say "NO!" to WCP!!!!

Just saw that... am I shocked that a former Discovery rider is juiced? Hardly.

Now maybe he and his stupid backwards hat will disappear forever.

If his "B" Sample is positive, it is a lifetime ban, right? Or does his plea from his previous conviction not count?

PLEASE let it be a lifetime ban.

I honestly thought that he'd already retired Figure that now the time is ripe to open a luxury hotel or attach his name to a grand fondu. Better yet, an announcer on NBC Gonna miss the backwards hat

Vaughters announces via Twitter that, despite previous statements to the contrary, the team will not fold as a result of Danielson's positive test.

Not surprised in the slightest....too much $$ at stake.

Has Vaughters ever said anything beyond "the right thing" at that moment? I see him as a blade of grass, always bending before the prevailing wind. Wind shifts? So does Vaughters.

Sorry, but that guy has never impressed me. Neither has Tom Danielson.

Drum roll for the B. And you're suppose to get the supplements tested before you take them.

So I guess TD has now dumped his second wife (and their two kids) for a podium chick he met at the Tour of Utah one year? Check out this awesome clip....

Sorry, the guy is just a first class douchebag. Good riddance.

What I don't get is all the outrage that is being directed towards Vaughters instead of TD. People are going ballistic because JV did not fold the team or resign. Yeah, I get all the public statements he has made indicating he would do that in the event of a positive test, but c'mon....did anyone honestly believe he would actually fold the team? I know I didn't.

I completely get that Vaughters can be an insufferable prick in his attitude and approach. BUt you'd think he was the one who came up "glowing" in the test, not TD.

Now, I think a very fair (and tough) question is why didn't Slipstream's vaunted internal testing program did not catch this before the OOC test did.

I have never gone on a diatribe against Vaughters. But I will stick with my blade of grass analogy. The guy is spineless. His words carry exactly the weight of words. (Ever try to put a word on a scale?) His big fault isn't that he is breaking his word, his fault is that he ever uttered those words in the first place.

There is a code that worthy people do their best to live to. " Be impeccable with your word."

I wasn't referring to anyone here, Ben.....

but I simply took his comments re: folding the team to be exactly what they turned out to be....puff statements that were about positioning, not substance.

Did anyone really expect him to fold the entire team in the face of a positive dope test? I agree that they were always kinda foolish statements, but I get where he was coming from.
