McQuaid dismisses Landis effort, says you can put anything in PowerPoint, threatens CAS appeal in Mercury News; also, blurb succinctly shows uphill gradiant. The statistics don't look good. A separate large article is fair and comprehensive.
Chicago Tribune does good story, balanced with ADA side hitting back.
CyclingNews gets around to noticing, with an exceptionally neutral tone.
ProCycling covers the basics.
Pittsburgh paper carries AP report, but uses a happy Floyd picture instead of a weaseling doper facing his accusers image. Thus changes the world.
Minneapolis StarTribune puts in in a wrapup, above youth baseball.
InsideBayArea rates it below Golf, above College Football (!)
Lemond says cycling needs to be brought to it's knees before it can be fixed, in long article about appearance in Natick Mass. This could be the case, one way or another.
Too good to miss, but no Floyd: Badass idiot by Fred at VeloNews.
Mostly quiet after the storm.
At Daily Peloton Forums, the important residue is in these threads, all unresolved:
- Positivity criteria
- Most reliable metabolite"
- 5aA delta C13 values wrong (TBV is never going to try to type out 5a-androwhatever at these wages.)
- PowerPoint analysis, which I think ends up agreeing with me, so they are smart.
At rec.bicycles.racing, some folks are now anticipating the fall of McQuaid, and Landis' defamation actions. Also here. Some of the most skeptical but honest observers appear to have been swayed from one side of the fence to another.
Bicyclling Forums discuss, mostly buy the slide set.
Dugard thinks the release is the beginning of smart guys fighing back.
RandomString thinks its a total roostering and plugs TBV.
AusCulture loves his mug, which is reason to believe.
Buzzle reprints story with nice picture.
RaceJunkie says you shouldn't have put anything out and what you did was weasely procedural stuff. Guess he hasn't been reading comments and mail to TBV that are outraged when I say procedural complaints aren't effective against the WADA machine or public perception -- even if it should be a scandal.
Travis believes what he read in the presentation.
DirtPedaler likes the release.
FrontalCortex pretends he did the reading, flunks the exam.
TechDirt likes the idea, but thinks he should have a real wiki instead of using DPF. I disagree -- better to reuse an existing community than try to create one.
PJ mulls over his feelings about the 2006 Tour DVD set.
Adam Smith notes Knowledge Problem's observations of Landis' use of "the wisdom of crowds".
TBV despises socialtag.org, which is an absolutely worthless aggregation of things based on keywords. Here is one they picked out for Floyd today: Landis Wash and Lube. Note the absence of a link to landiswashandlube.com. Socialtag looks like a honeypot to get you to click on their advertiser links, which are the only way to get out. Never again!
