eh, 8 or 9/10. It is interesting how time (and a USADA investigation) changes the whole thing. Completely believable now, especially after reading Hamilton's book.

I'm going with Tyson's rationale. :lol:
You can't argue with Tyson :D
No really you can't :lol:

I remember reading an article in the past in which Fignon (Lemonds Era) said that when riding the high mountains in the tour there was only a handfull of riders hanging with them. During the time EPO started to infiltrate the peloton he noted that the guys which use to be at the back in the mountains where now at the front with him. Im not saying they didnt use,I am saying that the guys at the back had better drugs to be at the front in the mountains.

Sorry, not going to "deal with it." Based on the way conflict between Greg and the-guy-from-TX has played out, I would say that Greg is definitely NOT an attention whore and NOT full of shit. What he was saying all along was correct. If Greg had stayed quiet until the last year or so, I might be more inclined to agree, but he was speaking his mind back when crossing the-guy-from-TX was very risky.

Is that Mike Tyson thing a comedy? Seems like the guy should be protected from him self rather than used for humour.
