"drugs are only temporary but a lifetime ban lasts forever."
I am deliberately taking the opposing view. He may not have been telling the truth when he said he did what he did.

With the wincing Oprah performance clips I saw on the news, he should do the logical thing and go into top tier Politics, as they are 99% Pathological Liars, mentally aberrated and terrible actors. The gaul of that guy to turn it into a big PR trip... what a lowlife, black souled excuse for a human. Easily in line for the coveted Piers Morgan award.
Armstrong's method of cheating under the vale of popularity & intimidation is nothing short of the way Saville avoided detection for his crimes.Armstrong admitted to cheating cannot be trusted.Surely systematic cheating in sport in that way should be made illegal and thereby a crime by virtue of the fact people are being duped and corporations are being defrauded, no?
Who are these people claiming LA was an inspiration and role model?If you need to live your life through other people , you deserve everything you get.He was just a cyclist who took drugs and made a lot of money. Suck it up and stop whingeing. No one died. The people who paid him knew he took drugs as do all athletes - yes even UK ones. He is a nasty creature but it is only sport. Get a life.
Sorry is meaningless, wether a drug taking cyclist or a Labour MP like Milipede!Armstrong took the prizes and kudos from others, Milipede's party allowed immigrants to flood into Britain, sorry means nothing unless there is a remedy for what occured. Armstrong may well hand back prize money, what of poor Britain, what can Milipede offer the nation to remedy the state his p[arty has put us in?
His career isn't just based on cheating, it's based on bullying and ruining the lives of those that opposed him. He then has the cheek to say "I don't deserve the death penalty" - No Lance you don't, you deserve to never cycle in competition again and should have *all* money you have made from cycling taken away from you and given to charity. You got off lightly.
297. rideforever>>>The UK spent MILLIONS on training athletes before the Olympics ...And we won, won lots of medals....Is that fair ?If you genuinely cannot see the difference between the UK spending money on training facilities and drugs-free expertise to produce athletic winners and what LA did, then something has really skewed your moral compass.
I watched the interview. The thought occurred to me whilst watching it that he had been coached for this event. He seemed to me to be an actor playing a part, but not being a professional media performer there were moments when he very briefly stepped out of character. I would not be surprised to learn that he spent a lot of time with a professional media coach preparing for this interview.
Answer to the problem, he received monies by deception, get him locked up and do a little bird.
Too little, too late. And I doubt your sincerity.
Armstrong is a self-confessed liar - he CANNOT BE TRUSTED. He knew what made him 'win'.His biggest crime is having deprived other racing cyclists 'who did not dope' from 'their place in history'; those moments can never be taken back, and NOTHING he has to say is worth a jot; NOTHING!!He must be made to pay back everything at every level; Compensation.He is corrupt and damaged beyond repair.
If only liars like Blair Bush Cameron Thatcher et-al were pursued with the same vigour. Meanwhile "The government has revealed that it bought more than 8,600 tickets for London Olympic and Paralympic Games. About 4,000 tickets, costing £916,000, were paid for by central government, with the rest - worth about £300,000 - bought by staff or London councils." That's 1M+ they felt able to waste.
Not really worried by a cheating bicycler !Very worried by non-coverage of corruption in the UK by BBC - banks and mps never happened did they. All's well now.We can yak about 'sport'.
It's not his fault. He is just a product. We created him. Read more http://www.palathara.com/articles/?p=26
