If Lance is successful with his lawsuit against USADA, what power will they have left to keep the sport clean? Can they still come to your house and take your blood or will that be classed as harassment in the future? Stay strong USADA.
***After reading some of your responses, I wanted to add this to clarify what I am trying to say:
Let me make it clear – I am not accusing Lance of anything. It’s not what this issue is about. What I am trying to say it is USADA’s sole job to enforce a 100% no drug policy in sport. If that means going back in the past to INVESTIGATE athletes who may have doped based on the information they have, then so be it. He may be a nice guy or a former champion or a legend in the sport, but that is totally irrelevant. Cheating is cheating. And just for the record – he is a current athlete. He is racing as a professional triathlete. Also, the guys who allegedly got deals, all admitted guilt. It’s not ideal, but the concept of a “plea bargain” is pretty common in the US law system. So what many of you are trying to say is that because it’s in the past it shouldn’t matter. Does that mean I don’t have to pay any tax for this year and once I hit next year I’m in the clear and it’s all forgiven? 1. It’s in the past. 2. I’m not hurting anyone. Does that make it ok? USADA is just doing their job. Don’t forget, he’s only under an investigation. No one has proven him guilty. Maybe this investigation comes back clean, but it’s USADA’s right and duty to investigate.
