Sorry to be flippant in a doping issue that everyone's taking very seriously, but why is the Luxembourg Anti-Doping Agency 'NADA' and not 'LADA'?

Makes very nittle sense to me...

I think a small (freudian??) slip has crept into the latest cycling news story.

The Luxembougish Anti-Doping Agency is actually ALAD : http://www.alad.lu/

It would be too funny if the name of their anti-doping agency was the word for "nothing" in spanish!

Let's qualify that by changing "everyone's" to "SOME ARE". Hell, I take a diuretic every day and even tell people about it, and guess what? No one cares. So now I'm telling the world that I take a diuretic. Anyone out there care or give a rats *ss? Anyone?? Anyone??? :wink:

I don't know why, I just do.

If you're lonely, I will call -
If you're poorly, I will send poetry

I love you
I am the milkman of human kindness
I will leave an extra pint

If you're sleeping, I will wait
If your bed is wet, I will dry your tears

I love you
I am the milkman of human kindness
I will leave an extra pint

Hold my hand for me I'm waking up
Hold my hand for me I'm waking up
Hold my hand for me I'm making up
Won't you hold my hand - I'm making up

If you are falling, I'll put out my hands
If you feel bitter, I will understand

I love you
I am the milkman of human kindness
I will leave an extra pint

Dennisn still supporting dopers with his mock apathy...
Con-man stings granny for life savings. Bothered?
Banker stings country for savings of millions of lives. Bothered?
Athlete to get in Guinness Book of Records for number of needles stuck in body at one time. Bothered?


Why carry on living if life interests the you little...

diuretics mask things like EPO, testosterone, corticosteroids and all the other things that are (not only) banned but also seriously dangerous to the health of those taking them in an uncontrolled manner

Do you actually want clean cycling Dennis ?

I know they're on the banned list for a reason and on that basis if Frank had a legitimate need to use them he should have obtained a TUE. He didn't which suggests he wasn't taking them for legitimate reasons.

Why do you care that he cares? And before you say anything, I don't care that you care that he cares, I'm just asking a question and have no interest in the answer other than to continue another pointless debate :wink:

So discussing a pro cyclist testing positive for a banned substance and facing a hearing to determine if he gets banned on a forum dedicated to professional cycling is a pointless debate? I think you might be in the wrong place!

Just seen this
French sports newspaper “L'Equipe” has published an article suggesting that RadioShack manager Johan Bruyneel doped cyclist Fränk Schleck, so that the latter would be unable to leave the team.

http://www.wort.lu/en/view/french-newsp ... um=twitter
It sounds kind of plausible, but given the latest revelations so would "Bruyneel shot JFK" and "Bruyneel masterminded 9/11", but it doesn't mean he was behind those either. Will be very difficult to prove I'd have thought.

True or not. Frank will use it as defence. He's got nothing else.
