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."
