I agree with Sea Ray here. Why are they wasting time and money on testing someone 500 times if it's completely discounted because 10 people said "I think I saw him do it."
Whether it's Lance Armstrong or anyone else, I don't understand the point/role of the testing process if it can be completely ignored.
