I thought we already heard his side(s) of the story:

1. Maybe it was the beer and whiskey the night before
2. Maybe it was the cortisone shot for my bad hip
3. Maybe it was my thyroid medication
4. Maybe I just naturally have sky high levels of testosterone
5. Maybe I was dehydrated

I stopped keeping track after the last one. Perhaps there’s a new explanation?

So if people show up and contribute to Floyd's fund, do they stand to get a return on those funds should Floyd win his case? I.e., if he is cleared of doping and his TdF title is reinstated, Floyd will stand to make millions in endorsements - will any of this money go to reimbursing the fund's contributors along with providing some return for the quite substantial monetary risk they took in supporting the legal case of someone who very well might be lying?

I think Floyd may very well be lying, although he's now put so much time and effort into his denials that either he's telling the truth or he's a total sociopath. There's no in-between.

What I do diagree with is people trumping up the multiple excuses as some kind of evidence that he's lying, when it really means nothing. Playing devil's advocate, if you were telling the truth but tested positive for steroids, you would be utterly bewildered and would be reaching out desperately for whatever possible explanation you could think of, especially in the immediate aftermath.

And while we're at it..

He can kiss good bye to his chances of ever making millions. If he's cleared, it will be on a technicality or because of lab sloppiness - not because a mistake was obviously made. No one will want to touch him.

"The return on your ""substantial monetary risk"" a whole $35.00 will allow you to drink as many beers as you want for 3 hrs. How's that for a good ROI?"

"I was referring to the fund-raising that goes on at these Landis ""town hall"" gatherings."

Joe, I imagine your return would be about the same as if you contributed $35 to the loser of the next election (at any level).

Or the WINNER of the next election, George, at that contribution level...
