Please, Dear God, not again...


I swear, if this guy does anything other than provide evidence that the press is FOS - then I think I might throw up...

Contador plans Friday announcement
Filed: August 8, 2007

Tour de France winner Alberto Contador has scheduled a press event this Friday in Spain, but says he will decline to answer reporters' questions after he reads a prepared statement.

Contador issued a release Wednesday notifying media of his plans to read a statement at the offices of Spain's national sports council - the Consejo Superior de Deportes - in Madrid.

Contador will be accompanied by Discovery Channel team director Johann Bruyneel.

Since winning the 2007 Tour de France, Contador has been the subject of heightened scrutiny regarding his possible involvement with Eufemio Fuentes, the Madrid doctor at the center of the OperaciĆ³n Puerto doping investigation.

I just can not imagine the damage this would cause to Discovery...and now I wonder if this is the reason for the delaying of the announcement of Discovery's replacement sponsor...

The appearance of Bruyneel at the presser makes me hope for good news - I can't imagine he would "stand by" a rider who will admit to involvement in doping...

Disco will have their fingers crossed for sure.

why not just go ahead and allow doping in racing??

I'm sure Barry Bonds would appreciate that comment - or would you prefer the NFL and MLB to allow doping too?
