Umm... How are those "NOP is cheating" accusations going?
And yet Nike hasn't sued this website as far as I know. Every track athlete and every cyclist has been accused of cheating and yet I don't recall companies suing message boards or anonymous board posters for accusing their athletes of cheating. I'm sure something like that has happened, you can find examples of any lawsuit you can think up, but the idea that Rob's sponsors are going to sue people who post on this board is silly.
Rob himself should threaten to sue, maybe he could get this thread deleted like A.V. did for his thread or a certain other alleged cheater we can't name.
But there I go giving them ideas again.
Umm... Dennis Mitchell got letsrun.com silent for a while.
Individuals, like those I sorta mentioned (probably enough to get my post deleted) have sued or threatened to (and it's worked), but I don't recall their sponsors suing, especially sponsors that are just one of several.
