Re: Lance Armstrong admits to doping to Oprah

Guys a cheat and a dickhead of the highest order, delighted to see him get his comeuppance, really hope no one falls for his sob story bullshit.
Currently reading Tyler Hamiltons The Secret Race, recommend for anyone who wants to see just how far these fuckers went to beat the system, especially interesting is the insider terms, these fuckers were kayfabe to the max, 'Choad' is a favourite of Lance

Re: Lance Armstrong admits to doping to Oprah

Armstrong far beyond redemption now. Ruined dozens upon dozens of lives. The personal use is disgraceful, but the encouraging of doping on a massive scale whilst bullying whistle-blowers and blacklisting clean riders is the real crime.

Mayorga on BJ: Real men fight- maricons roll on ground and wrestle. Boxeo is número UNO! Tell BJ to box me- after I KO him, I will put him not in a body bag but in a condom so he can think that’s where he shud have stayed

Mayorga on facing Vargas: I'm going to give Vargas the chance to cash his last paycheck. I would like to say publicly that Fatty Vargas has always feared me. I conceded to take this fight at 162 pounds because fatty couldn't lose any more weight. I will do Vargas a favor by retiring him in this fight so his family doesn't have to suffer every time he steps in the ring. I'm going to do his wife a favor and not let her cry anymore.

Re: Lance Armstrong admits to doping to Oprah

The funniest thing about all this is that Armstrong returned to the sport in 09 because he thought it was embarrassing that in his absence someone like Carlos Sastre could win the Tour. Sastre, meanwhile along with Evans is one of the only clean riders to have won the race in recent years and would have smoked a clean Armstrong on any mountain stage of decent length.

In essence, the story was too good to be true. How else could a one day specialist transform himself into the best climber and time triallist in the peloton? That sort of thing just doesn't happen without a helluva lot of illegal assistance.

If Mr. Amstrong didnt take care of what he said in the interview he could have serious legal problems, Perjury = Jail

It just might happen, word is the IOC might consider shutting down cycling as an Olympic sport for a while if not permanently. Especially if it is true about top cycling feds receiving "donations" from Armstrong's team.

Livestrong is done as an organization now also, no one wants to touch it and most people will no longer give any money to it.

I'm interested to see what happens to Oprah and her network now as a result of this interview. It's been a rough ride since 2007, she lost a lot of viewers from her show and most people have no clue where OWN is on their cable/satellite listing.

Re: Lance Armstrong admits to doping to Oprah

I've received some interest from four people in private messages to post this story. It's not transcendent by any means, but I think it covered the depths of who is Lance Armstrong. Take a read.

Well written by Dan Wetzel. The most glaring omission that the media has been missing is how Lance has used his story, fame and good will to destroy other people's lives. And the author goes into extreme detail.

Re: Lance Armstrong admits to doping to Oprah

heres another good article

Among my emails Wednesday morning, out of the blue, was one from Lance Armstrong:

Riles, I'm sorry.

All I can say for now but also the most heartfelt thing too. Two very important words.


And my first thought was ... "Two words? That's it?"

Two words? For 14 years of defending a man? And in the end, being made to look like a chump?

Wrote it, said it, tweeted it: "He's clean." Put it in columns, said it on radio, said it on TV. Staked my reputation on it.

the rest :

Re: Lance Armstrong admits to doping to Oprah

Huge cycling fan here.

I have no intention of wasting any of my time on Lance's two part sob story with Oprah. Anyone who follows the sport closely knew (or should have known) about his antics and bully tactics within the peloton since forever. The problem is far deeper than one man or one team but the degree he and his people took systematic doping to, and the power he exerted over the careers of anyone who challenged him, makes his case a special one.

Unless he's intending to bring down the top people in the UCI (International Cycling Union), along with the doctors, financiers and suppliers who all aided – and continue to aid - in allowing various sorts of doping programs to run unchecked then nothing he has to say interests me. His fall has hurt the sport's image, which was already pretty ragged, further harming teams trying to find sponsors. The only good that can come out of it now is him naming names.
