.....and, not surprisingly, it is VeloNews leading the charge. Not that Andrew Hood cares, but the answer to his question is "yes."

Who is this paying off with, CK?

Lance fans from before his fall from grace, who pretty much remained with him offering conditionals as they offered denials before his admission?

I agree with Hood, that the only ones complaining are Lance and Johan.

Perhaps I misread your post title and thread.

Huck, to me, the lines about how Lance and Johann raise legitimate questions smacks of "jeez, these guys have a good point. Maybe they have been wronged." It is exactly the reaction that -7 has been hoping for.

The fact remains that his case isn't just like the others, and his actions in light of the investigation also weren't the same as the others, but that is the card he is trying to play.

I am also now convinced that -7 was on AICAR in 2009 / 2010, which gives him the ability to claim he was clean those years since it had not yet been banned.

It is the sMe behavior and manipulation that he has shown throughout this entire process. He tries to control the narrative, but refuses to make his claims anywhere where it really matters.

Just say "NO!" to WCP!!!!

Redemption implies change.

-7 hasn't changed his nature or his MO, and he likely can't.

Tragic, actually.

CK, can they go back to samples from 09-10 and test for AICAR now? In other words, is the stuff stable in human specimens for a few years?

I believe they can, but it sounds like the tests are very expensive. So since it was not illegal in that time, and it would cost a bunch of $$$, I don't think it is likely.

But I really want a journalist to ask -7 the question. "Did you use AICAR in '09? It was it illegal and that would back up your claim that you were "clean"."
