I think a better question is what sport at the highest level DOESN'T have doping, or even at amateur levels. Let's be realistic, it's human nature to cheat, not only in sports, but in life, work, etc...

This is what I'm talking about. This is John Eustice's clan.

These are the same people who were kicked out of the City of San Francisco for not paying their bills (research it yourself on Google SFGate).

Birds of a feather!

Philadelphia is such a loser city that they are actually trying to help these crooks!

Fuentes

Thomas Dekker claims that he will be telling the full story about his doping, his enablers and everyone else he has seen with dope including the names on the plus 150 bags of blood, his doc Mr Fuentes, who he has seen 5 times, had seen. The list of names includes Ivan Basso, Alejandro Valverde and of course Alberto Contador. It will include not only names, but data en details as well. He will confessing will to the Dutch doping authority which is run by Herman Ram.

names
By: Quentin Internal Routing
Sun, 01/20/2013 - 5:42pm

Just a couple of names of Rabo cyclist that came 'clean' over the last few days. Danny Nelissen, Mark Lotz, Thomas Dekker. Many others have already confessed they worked with peds dealer Stefan Matschiner (Humanplasma)including Michael Boogerd, and most likely Joost Posthuma and Pieter Weening. Matschinger was according to Rudy Pevenage, Jan Ullrich ex manager, the one to go to if you could not get Dr Fuentes to work with you. Erik Dekker was not aloud to start because of a 52% hematocrit level during UCI World Championship in Verona (1999). Rory Sutherland got a 9 month ban for using Clomiphene in 2006. Rabobank suspended Carlos Barredo because of internal (doping) violations -a doping team with doping ethics? Dennis Menchov worked for years together with Ferrari. Levi Leipheimer admitted he used doping during his Rabo years. This is just a start the list goes on and on..

Rabobank
By: Quentin Internal Routing
Sun, 01/20/2013 - 12:27pm

Many Rabobank cyclists are now admitting systematic doping in their team since 1996 and getting the necessary assistance from doctors to do so. They say the doping scheme was run top down. 'Doping was a way of life for them according to Thomas Dekker. Apparently Rasmussen was doing the 2007 tour, the one he got pulled out of b/c of his whereabouts, on 5 bags of blood, 100,000 units of EPO, testosterone and cortico's. Rabobank and Rasmussen are still in court regarding a 5.8 million euro settlement.

Dear kindly Oprah Winfrey,

That gets us out of hand.
Our mothers all are junkies,
Our fathers all are drunks.
Golly Moses, natcherly we're punks!

ACTION AND JETS
Gee, Oprah Winfrey, we're very upset;
We never had the love that ev'ry child oughta get.
We ain't no delinquents,
We're misunderstood.
Deep down inside us there is cash!

ACTION
There is cash!

There is cash, there is cash,
There is untapped cash!

SNOWBOY: (Spoken) That's a touchin' good story.

ACTION: (Spoken) Lemme tell it to the world!

SNOWBOY: Just tell it to the judge.

ACTION
Dear kindly Judge, your Honor,
My parents treat me rough.
With all their EPO,
They won't give me a puff.
They didn't wanna have me,
But somehow I was had.
Leapin' lizards! That's why I'm so bad!

DIESEL: (As Judge) Right!

Oprah Winfrey, you're really a square;
This boy don't need a judge, he needs an analyst's care!
It's just his neurosis that oughta be curbed.
He's psychologic'ly disturbed!

ACTION
I'm disturbed!

JETS
We're disturbed, we're disturbed,
We're the most disturbed,
Like we're psychologic'ly disturbed.

DIESEL: (Spoken, as Judge) In the opinion on this court, this child is depraved on account he ain't had a normal home.

ACTION: (Spoken) Hey, I'm depraved on account I'm deprived.

DIESEL: So take him to a headshrinker.

ACTION (Sings)
My father is a bastard,
My ma's an S.O.B.
My grandpa's always plastered,
My trainer pushes tea.
My sister wears a mustache,
My manager wears a dress.
Goodness gracious, that's why I'm a mess!

A-RAB: (As Psychiatrist) Yes!
Oprah Winfrey, you're really a slob.
This boy don't need a doctor, just a good honest job.
UCI's played him a terrible trick,
And sociologic'ly he's sick!

ACTION
I am sick!

We are sick, we are sick,
We are sick, sick, sick,

Most of the time you received a medal, and maybe a little prize money and you would grind your teeth and gears for a few bucks for those primes. I think once the money started pooring into cycling it greated a monster.

Lance Armstrong is innocent.
By: Jules Clamp
Tue, 01/15/2013 - 10:26am

Lance Armstrong is innocent. How do I know this? Simple. We are in phase of unprecedented evolution of consciousness for humanity, the Earth and all life .

Any true 'lightworker' knows how to 'read energy' underlying any spoken, or written word. It can be deciphered through the amazing 'truth meter' available to everyone within their own being; a filter of divine frequencies of light, energy, essence and love within the heart core; the divine within us all. When we enter this sacred space we resonate with the vibration frequencies of the highest levels of divine, unconditional love. When we ask a question and intend to know the answer that is the highest of truth, there can be no deception, because there is no fear-based consciousness in divinity - only love-based consciousness.

This way of being and doing is the 'modus operandi' of right-brain attributes; intuition, creativity, subjectivity, and much more. Right brain method is global, whole/holistic way of access. Left-brain is linear functioning; logic and reasoning. One could pose that left-brain only uses half the brain, while right-brain uses all the brain!

As humanity evolves and changes to more whole-brain functioning (interestingly, dolphins are whole-brain functioning mammals), we access more of the skills, abilities, gifts and talents within us for creative pursuits that benefit us, and all life, in a way which and brings us joy; our birthright as human beings to fulfill our unlimited potential.

Lance is an example of fulfilling an inspirational life of purpose.

Lance has beaten cancer ('Can-seer'). There are interests that do not like this; so he has been targeted. Mind control methods, financial reward and blackmail can induce 'witnesses' to act and speak to predetermined scripts.

Lance has been wise to not engage in any ill-founded debate. It only adds energy to his detractors. Maybe now is the right time to address this for him, as the light has expanded exponentially, and continues to do so.

the moral
By: Samuel Grips
Mon, 01/14/2013 - 9:15pm

The moral in cycling has changed so quickly during the last decade. In all sports they have been using peds and especially in cycling. Arthur Linton supposedly did strychnine and nitroglycerine with help of the Ferrari of his time, or more recent Indurain and Boonen? Cycling has always been a shady sport. Races have been sold. The strongest did not always win. A sport of the catholics and not of the protestants. A sport of competitive forgiveness not of competitive moralism. We want a simplification of the truth in what is good and what is bad. Unfortunately Lance took it to main street and put it in the hands of wall street. Now it seems every cyclist is being held accountable for a century of romanticism. For a decade he lied about it, bullied others using his cycling millions to keep his empire alive. Now it is time to milk the last bit of juice out of this story while he's at Oprah's couch. Wonder if Oprah is going to ask about his cancer. What's next. Betsie and Lance at Jerry Springer?
