Man Cave Quarterback

Why did Lance Armstrong Give Up !
Lance Armstrong has given up his fight against doping allegations from the USADA.
He never failed one test and has taken over 500 .He was tested in competition, and out of competition. He was tested at the Olympics, at the Tour de France, at dozens if not hundreds of other events. And he never failed a test. We know this because if he had, Travis Tygart, the head of USADA would be dancing in the streets with the news.
So now they want to take away his Medals, Titles and prizes he has earned since 1998 even though he has not failed 1 test?
So let me get this straight, the only proof you have is people claiming they saw him take the stuff, No proof, No bills, No shipments, just the words of ex-teammates like Floyd Landis who was stripped of his 2006 Tour de France victory in 2010 due to failing the doping test, A very trust worthy source if you ask me. Other team’s like the one’s Armstrong dominated during his run, a very trust worthy source if you ask me. So on and so forth the list goes on and on and nobody has solid proof.
Armstrong was then subjected to a two-year federal criminal investigation followed by Travis Tygart’s unconstitutional witch hunt.
The Charges were dropped but the USADA still pressed on until Lance said enough was enough. You can say I doped all you want but you never prove it and at that Point the USADA said see we told you he was guilty he’s banned for life and we want all he earned! We don’t need proof now we just hounded him until he gave up? WHAT?
Is this how this country works now guilty until we beat you down and still don’t have proof and even though you never failed a test, but we think you did it because nobody is that good!
I bet Michael Jordan and Wayne Gretzky are glad the USADA does not come after them because nobody can be that good naturally.
From the beginning this investigation has not been about learning the truth or cleaning up cycling, but about punishing Armstrong at all costs.
He is a retired cyclist, yet USADA has lodged charges over 17 years old despite its own 8-year limitation. Maybe they are Sheryl Crow fans? Maybe they love the French and hate that he beat them so bad. Maybe Travis Tygart is in love with Lance and knows he can never have him. Whatever the reason is, it’s not about the truth.
I’ve taken drug test it’s either, Urine, Blood or Hair. The reason they don’t take your word for it is simple, people lie.
The test don’t lie but wait he did pass all the test’s? Yes all 500 of them, so in this case the test lie but people with agenda’s don’t?
So on the words of these people with no real proof the USADA using the Taxpayer’s dime mind you conducted a 17 year witch hunt. The Federal government conducted a 20 month investigation, The USADA 17 years no evidence, no failed tests, no packages from Balco, nothing but the words of people with an agenda.
Millions of dollars of our money!
Unemployment is at an all-time high we got a budget out of control and you spend millions just to call somebody a cheat?
Lance why did you give up?
Is it because the cost to you just to prove your clean was projected to be over 5 million? Or instead of spending all your time fighting a losing battle you want to spend time with your family? Or did you figure out a way to beat the test all 500 of them.
Something thousands of athletes would love to know and you want to sell your secrets to make millions more?
All I know is you banned a retired guy from cycling ever again. Big win and you’re going to spend millions more to get back everything he made even though the last time you tried you lost.
Barry Bonds and Mark McGwire both of which were guilty and pretty much admitted it you could not convict…. so A hero cancer survivor who devotes himself to the Live Strong Foundation, the charity he founded that underwrites cancer awareness, support and research.
Yea good luck on that. I’m sure it will go as good as the other cases you know the ones you had a leg to stand on…….
