Nice description here:
"The opinion is a rout. In tennis, it’s a 6-love match in three sets. In Little League, they would have invoked the mercy rule. In boxing, the referee would have jumped between USADA and Landis to stop the bloodshed. Tiger Woods never won a major by this many strokes.
The opinion is sheer carnage. Reading the opinion, you’d conclude that Landis never called a credible witness or raised an argument worthy of serious thought.
Sure, a lot of us thought that Landis never had a chance … but this? This wasn’t just a defeat. USADA threw a no-hitter. They never had to punt. They took nothing but three point shots, and never missed. Bowled 300. Hit every fairway and holed every approach shot. Perfect 10s from every judge."http://trustbut.blogspot.com/2008/07/larry-stunned.html
