Fair Warning on Comments

We are starting to remove offensive, inflammatory comments that do not appear to be expressing a coherent viewpoint. I have, to date, removed perhaps 4 in 10 months, but have just done three in the last few days. There have been offensive, hurtful things not related to the facts of the case that will not be tolerated, and they will be nuked when noticed.

UPDATE: Until this resolves, I'm going to be pretty ruthless about both the comments and the replies. Roid, this means you. If there's no signal, it's going to be background subtracted.

Why did Floyd Landis tell Will Geoghegan about Greg Lemond's child molestation?

Did he tell his entire legal team? If so, they are all looking at ethics charges and suspensions.

If not, why not?

Either way, Landis and his entire defense is going in for a crash landing tomorrow.

Should be a Red Letter Day.

My goodness, is everyone getting hateful?!
The reason Floyd told everyone in his circle about Greg L, was because he thought it might come up at the hearing. And he was right. Plus, Greg told him he was writting a book, and it was okay if it wasn't a big secret.

yah, but the appearance of the case has no bearing on the science of the case- and apparently that is what the trial is about. ut it makes me wonder if Floyd stands up and says " I cheated!" can he still be found innocent based on the scientific evidence presented ????

If Landis confessed under oath, that can be taken as a "non-analytic positive", and would suffice for a sanction.

Not that it is likely to happen.

The good news is that TBV is getting more popular. The bad news is that you get the crazies, too. Carry on!
