    David Millar or Tyler Hamilton?

    LAndis now has two choices. Man up, admit his wrong doing, and accept punishment, or take the Hamilton route,and contest it, contesting the validity ofthe tests and the procedure. It would take large stones (which Landis claims to have) to take the first approach. I'm afraid at age 30 and facing a 4 year pro tour ban, Landis will go the Hamilton route, the last thing cycling needs. Onthe other hand aprolonged appeal by Landis may not do that much more damage, because very few people give a crap at this point.

    Millar has definitively rewritten his image in his contrition.

    i believe alex zuelle is a better example of a guy that came clean. at least with him there wasn't the lag time and you could at least imagine it being true.

    He is a go down in flames kind of guy in my estimation. He is going to fight this until the money runs out.

    I hope he admits it and then "lists" everyone he knows that has doped and still dopes. Basically destroying the Euro peloton and letting the media own up to the idea that EVERYONE doeps.

    I would like to see the whole thing blown sky high by the Floyd man. In the long run that will be the only way to TDF immortality. I don't know what he has to lose at this point - he's unlikely to prevail on this on appeal and will thus lose the race, two year ban + destroyed hip make a "clean comeback" highly unlikely, I would think, he's been fired from his team in any event, endorsements (such as they were) likely to dry up. What does the man have to lose at this point? He can be remembered as a scoundrel or as someone who realized the errors of his ways and worked to reform the sport he loves. Guess I'm starting to sound like Lemond.
