Floyd called Chicken-$#1t on NBC

Saw the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. CBS actually-not NBC

On the show, he said, "Floyd Landis the winner of the TDF and then some kind of doping charge... he was suppossed to be on but cancelled. [wipes his fingers on the table and looks at it] hmm, looks like chicken $h1t to me. Yup he's CS...."
Craig went on for a bit on the chicken-s---- gag. He was obviously making a point about the cancellation.

Floyd is loosing credibility that's for sure.

I wouldn't call Floyd a chicken: Yellow yes for not admiting his guilt and apoligising to everyone especialy to the second place Spaniard.

Floyd Floyd has lost his creadabily full time. However, he may have had a very good reason to cancel like dealing with his family situation.

Considering what has happened with his father-in-law Floyd certainly has alot of other things to worry about.

I wonder if Ferguson knows about that? If not I sure hope somebody told him. If he did there's a few words to describe Ferguson......

I think I'd get sick of defending myself to someone who wants to crack jokes about me and my sport too. Guilty or not I can't really blame him.

exactly. i'm not sure why he was making all those appearances. they were just out to make him look like a fool. which he is turning out to be. i hate to say it, but lance is correct, landis needs to stay out of the media for a while. every appearance seems to drive another nail in the coffin.

You watch craig over Conan?!

Anways, few people watch the lousy late late show anyway, so his crap-talking dosen't get too far to really be noticed. Anyway, yes i second the idea of floyd having a resonable excuse, with his family situation, to not make that stupid show anyways.

A difficult feat considering they both run their ads at roughly the same time.

Can't blame him for going on the Tonight Show, that show is such a benchmark of something-ness...

I have been keeping Floyd and his family in my thoughts and prayers, if you do that I hope you are too, even though I think he's guilty I still pray for him...for what it's worth.
