There is an organization called the USADA that seems to be bending the rules so that they can erase Lance Armstrong. I am curious not so much to find the truth of whether or not Armstrong doped, but to figure out exactly what purpose it serves for the USADA to execute its aim to clawback his rewards after 17 years.
Actually that's a rhetorical curiosity. I've already made up my mind that referees don't get infinite instant replays. The statute of limitations on sport should be the season. If you cannot determine by the end of the season who is the legitimate champion of the season, then don't give an award. If you cannot determine, by the end of a game, if all the rules of the game were followed, then declare the competition null and void.
I am convinced that Armstrong is being unfairly persecuted, and furthermore that every sport that has doping rules should ensure that they are immediately enforceable. If Armstrong outsmarted the USADA, then too bad. My bias is that this agency is doing to its sport what boxing governing bodies did to theirs which is to draw into profound relief its inability to hold the respect and admiration of its chartered participants.
I'll keep my ear out for what the cyclists, teams, trainers and coaches have to say.
