Tommy D Popped!
« on: August 03, 2015, 06:08:44 PM »
http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/tom-danielson-tests-positive-for-testosterone/  And he is stupid enough to say he didn't take T or any other PED, what a jackass.  This certainly doesn't look good for Vaughters and his "Clean" cycling team.

Vaughters is a asshat himself.  Slim to none.

It already happened.  It's one of his best posts yet. And I usually find him annoying.

i wish vaughters would fire himself right out of the sport.
You can be the strongest guy in the field but if you don't know how to use it, when to use it, and have the b*lls to use it at the right time, you'll lose.

Vaughters is such a d'bag, if LA wasn't a humongous d'bag it'd be funnier.

I actually believed his message about the anti-doping stance of his team until now.  Had he made good on his threat and at least tried to disband the team, it would have made a huge statement to the world as to the veracity of that stance.  As it is now, it was all just empty talk.

I understand that it means a lot of people lose their jobs, but I am a musician.  I'm used to losing jobs.  There's always another job.

The sport needed someone to stand firm.  Someone in a position of power.  I thought he was that guy.

So far, the only person deeply involved in pro cycling to have stayed true throughout all of it is Betsy Andreu

You know why he didn't disband the team, cause he'd lose money, everything revolved around money.  The statement by Jacques-Maynes is great and you pretty much can't make it to the big leagues without doping, so those who are at the top of the domestic peloton and chose not to dope, I have much respect for them.


Here's what B J-M said:“Danielson and I turned pro the same year,” said Ben Jacques-Maynes, the veteran Jamis-Hagens Berman rider, just prior to stage 1. “You can see the massive difference in our career trajectories from 2002. Having said that, we now know why there’s a trajectory difference."
