YOU = Make them look worse, every damn post by you make them look worse.
How do you think making crazy fanboy comments about Rupp will make it anything better? If you had taken a basic college class in psychology you would know (like the average guy knows) that they way you act not only makes Rupp seems more suspicious, it also makes people want to bash him more. You are the crazy lunatic fan that no sports hero likes, you are the guy they are embarrassed about.
For Rupps sake, stop it.
If you are such a defender of clean athletes, why do you only defend and talk about doping in regards to the NOP? Why aren't you defending the 2012 Olympic Champion in the 1500m? If you know who that is...?
And btw, there is nothing wrong about being gay, or are you a homophobe as well as an idiot?
Be a man and Buckle up! Lets see you answer anything not made on your terms kiddo.
I sometimes see folks talk about posts having the same IP address. How do you know? How does one see the IP address of a poster?

I think you are kidding yourself if you think that major increases in performance from athletes in their late 20s should not be questioned. I would love for the sport to be clean enough where they can be believed without question but that is not that the case. To stop doubting is to give up and let the whole thing be dirty.
I'm not saying I believe either Rupp or Solomon are using. Incidentally, my personal but irrelevant opinion is that one of them is dirty). I'm saying they need to be questioned in the same manner that Morrocans or Russians or sprinters get questioned.
Considering the tone of your posts, I suspect you are the type of person who vociferously and agressively defended Lance from the beginning. The kind of guy who hurled vitriol at Walsh and Kimmage for having the guts and the professionalism to ask the questions. I love the 'how dare you' tone of the posts considering I have not accused anybody of anything.
Obviously you don't know this site very well, you must be new. How about this, let's post a hundred pictures of you up here. Let's have the owners encourage people to call you a doper, and a homosexual, for...let's make it an even 5 years. And then you get back to me and we'll talk about "tone."
Dude, that was the worst, longest, most insane rant I have ever seen on these boards.

You really want do this again?
See if you can be man enough not to delete the whole thread this time.
Is it possible you and your brother are a tad sociopaths? A tad delusional? Have you ever read any of psychology where it talks about twins supporting each others delusions? It's out there, you may want to seriously check it out. ...
Why was I repetitive? Because I felt you needed the repetition to get through your selective memory.
I am astounded how 1 good run by Rupp has caused so much nonsense and ignorance.
For a start running a 3:51 mile, and let's get this clear, 3:50.97 is 3:51 not 3:50, is nothing "astounding" as some people seem to make out, for one of the world's leading 5000m runners. Moorcroft ran sub 3:50 after running 13:00 some 31 years ago, on slower tracks and with less training knowledge than what Rupp is used to with Nike.
The idea that because he ran 3:51 indoors he must be capable of 3:48 outdoors is also a nonsense. Looking at the splits they were pretty even at around 57.5 a quarter. He is clearly in good shape for this time of year, but a 3:51 is just that NOT 3:48. While sprinters are going to be slowed down somewhat on the tighter 200 tracks, the difference for milers is negligible, and certainly not worth 3 Secs! And there is no wind or extreme temperature affecting an indoor performance.
So I see no reason why a world leading 5000m runner running an indoor 3:51 mile off almost perfect pacing, is any cause for raising dope issues?
The constant obsession with Rupp, whatever he seems to do, is baffling and I hope he doesn't read them. He's either being accused of being doped to the gills or else people say he's the greatest ever and going to break US/world records at a variety of distances based on 1 mile result. Both extremes are wide of the mark. People need to get a better sense of reality.
