Do you believe Floyd Landis?

Postby AquaMan2342 » Thu May 20, 2010 2:38 pm

I know steroids is a pretty tired subject (especially around these parts), but I find his interview at least a bit intriguing. Thoughts?

Landis will probably end up being the Jose Canseco of cycling. It won't surprise about anyone to find out that doping is rampant in cycling. It could put paid to the legacy of Lance Armstrong, though. He'll take the biggest fall.

I would not be surprised to learn any athlete in any sport is on steriods, including sports that have hardly been assoicated with PEDs.

I thought those Canadian women curlers looked especially ripped in the Olympics. :-?

I tend to believe him but who knows? It certainly wouldn't be shocking if he was correct. Rumors have followed Armstrong about PED use for his entire career. Doesn't make Landis any less of a complete scum bag. I remember watching, think it was HBO Real Sports, he was crying crocodile tears about his innocence and how "they" are out to get him. He brought the water works so well I was ready to give the benefit of doubt to him. Of course then he quickly became irrelevant and out the stream of conscious. But now he's back and I really hate him.

I'm surprised so many of you are inclined to believe him.

I wouldn't be shocked to hear of wide spread use of PEDs in cycling but until allegations and/or credible evidence are brought forward by a more reliable source then I don't think this deserves national attention. Landis vehemently denied the accusations against him for years then he suddenly openly admits his guilt. That's a pretty massive turnaround. What makes you guys think that this is any different?

He has absolutely zero credibility to me.
