at least no mention of Kelli White anywhere in this piece.

I HAVE been trying to pay attention, but what again is the White link? That's where she got the 'narcolepsy' meds?

Most of that link is old news but it is where she got her supplements. The narcolepsy meds may or may not tie in but that is something we may never find out the answer to. Goldman, the doctor who came to her defense with the narcolepsy argument, is also connected to Balco and Conte. More here:

Interesting that in Conte's musical travels in his preparation to being a nutritionist to the stars, he used to play with a band called Pure Food & Drug Act. Biggest claim to fame is Tower of Power, as mentioned in the article, which needs no introduction to the California types.

they are all going down this time. Tho the evidence that is public is very slender (read not much), we will find out what is up whenever DEA and DOJ release the results of the BALCO raid last month. Only then will we have a near definitive picture...

Here is the latest news on this:

http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=s ... usa_doping

Excerpts:

"American anti-doping chiefs revealed that a new anabolic steroid, which up until now has escaped all known doping controls, has been found in the test samples of several American athletes who competed at the national championships."

"Madden said the agency is confident that the BALCO laboratory, which is operated by Victor Conte, who has worked in the past with American footballers, body-builders and athletes such as Kelli White and Marion Jones (news - web sites), was the source of the substance."

More bad news it seems...

I can't believe USADA would be stupid enough to release Conte's name based just on the "tip" of an unknown coach and a syringe that showed up out of nowhere. The raid must have turned up the substance, even though USADA can't talk about it.

wow.thats ugly. i wonder what they found. kinda interesting tho in a wierd way but no matter what Its really gonna hurt this time.

But, you know, nobody is really paying attention to this non-sense. Its kind of like bidding a sad farewell to your lover, sad even though you knew it could never work...you just Keep On Keeping On.'

In the end, T&F will survive. A bunch of people will get embarrassed, fined, fired and sued. Some will be convicted and sent to the Pen. Ashcroft and DEA Chief will claim a victory in the Drug War. IAAF and IOC will declare the sports eradicated of cheats. Catlin will be elevated to Chief Dope Detective WADA. Excellent mid-grade Athletes will still be underpayed, uninsured and unrepresented.
and the cheaters and their chemists will find a new solution and a new source in their pursuit of ego satisfaction.

Same as it ever was...

"The release of Conte's name by USADA seemed highly unusual. He was thrust into the news in early September when authorities from the Internal Revenue Service, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the San Mateo Narcotics Task Force raided BALCO. Two days later, as part of the same investigation, authorities also raided the residence of Greg Anderson, one of Bonds' personal trainers...When Madden was pressed about how his agency could name BALCO based on the word of an anonymous coach, he said, "We're not absolutely sure, we are just telling you that everything the coach has identified to us is true. ... We are fairly certain that the substance came from Victor Conte and BALCO labs. We are not sure of their exact role. There may have been many other people involved. There could have been chemists involved that were not mentioned in the press release."

I wonder if he has stopped his testimonials to Balco and Conte:


"Goldman acknowledged that he agreed to be listed as BALCO's medical director at the company's inception. But he said he frequently went months without speaking to Conte or performing medical tasks related to the company. He said he did not know how his signature came to appear on the documents and never gave Conte, BALCO's president, or other company officials permission to sign the documents for him."
