    At this point, I'm not surprised and really don't care. Get back to me when someone actually gets banned. Until then, I'm not interested. Note, that pretty much goes for any sport (cycling, football, baseball, track and field, golf, boxing, swimming, etc). I'm tired of hearing about investigations and allegations. If they get caught, they get caught. Punish them. Otherwise, I've got no interest.
    Everyone has a right to an opinion. However, this does not mean that one's opinion is right.

It's amazing how they can find and pick out things better than any agency in the world. Any investigation driven by them is definitely suspect. Motives, suspect; Evidence, suspect; Science, suspect. At least they are consistent. And, as allways, read about it in the news. Lots of ways to sell papers.

    The problem with this is that there is no verified chain of custody. So even if DNA evidence is found and matched it cannot meet certain legal requirements. There is no way to say that someone didn't place the evidence there. So the French may back down if Astana were to sue them. And now the likely perpetrators are all on team Radio Shack. However, the evidence is certainly possibly damning.
