Former US Postal Rider Punches Garmin-Chipotle Doctor
During the stage 3 criterium in Salt Lake City last Friday, Tour of Utah team liaison Marty Jemison, a former U.S. Postal Service rider, punched Steffen after the team doctor made what Jemison considered to be an inflammatory remark about alleged doping dating back over a decade.
Jemison and Steffen worked together at U.S. Postal during the 1996 season; Jemison was a talented American rider on the upstart squad, and Steffen was an emergency room physician and admitted recovering heroin addict.
(Jemison) said something like ‘Twelve years later, we’re still trying to clean up the mess you idiots made.’

Now, here's something I don't understand. This doctor is a recovered (or recovering) heroin addict, yet he's criticizing someone else for using drugs in the past and making a mess of things as a result?! Sure, it may not even be true that Jemison doped but even if it is, what gives a person who was a heroin-addict the right to criticize an EPO user?! :?:
