Thumbs up for the Landis team for a brilliant job of presenting the facts, and exposing a shameful cover-up all the way from the techs at the Cesspool to the top honchos at WADA and USADA.
Thumbs down and shame to USADA and their hired attorneys, who cared nothing for truth, ethics and integrity. Their win-at-any-cost strategy was disgraceful and appalling. Their desperate focus on that unfortunate incident, by a stupid member of the Landis team, and their attempt to turn it into further character assassination of Floyd was pathetic. Trying to turn what Floyd wore to the hearings into more character assassination gave us a window into even more cheap, two-bit tactics - distract from the facts when they're not in your favor...
And more thumbs down to USADA for the small fortune that they spent on hiring outside attorneys while their highly-paid, in-house attorney sat it out. And a huge thumbs-down for their very revealing, farcical perversion of their own Mission Statement in this hearing.
Excerpts from the USADA Mission statement on their website:
“Testing: A major goal in testing is to achieve quality and consistency in the collection process and prompt, efficient handling of results.
“Results Management: USADA's adjudication process was designed to eliminate the conflicts of interest inherent with the involvement of National Governing Bodies (NGBs) in prosecuting and sanctioning their own athletes, and to simplify procedures and reduce the time and financial burdens associated with appeals.”
Shame on you, USADA...
