As I understand it the USADA didnt have a dirty test/sample on LA, but had several witness (10 or more) that said we saw and or helped LA dope. Again, as I understand it was solely based on eye witness accounts not any testing data. LA could have certainly beat the claims but quit because he couldnt beat the public relations nightmare of opening up the doping can of worms. Am I hot or cold so far?
So can the USADA ask that you be stripped on banned based soley on eye witness statements?
I use the example of being hauled into court because someone said I sold crack. Even if 20 people said I sold crack, you couldnt convict me based on that. Should I believe that LA has been shown much more than the media is aware of? Is there evidence the LA just doesnt want the public to see and if that is the case, why doesnt the USADA just release it regardless of if LA fights or not?
I am asking these questions because I am trying to figure out the real reason LA quit the fight? He has been in the fight so long it was very odd to me that something this round made him cave in. Thoughts?
