Yeah, that should be on the list but so should some others as well...Like OJ and then you could add all the lies told to the world leading up to Shock & Awe against Iraq etc..Could end up being a rather long list. But being its the New York Post no question their list is slanted and flawed.

Both Lance and Oprah are milking this for all its worth...Kind of reminds of the drama leading up to the eventual non event of Geraldo Rivera opening Al Capone's safe on national TV.

Or the waste of airtime that was Lebron's announcement he was heading to Miami. Could have been done in 2 minutes.

The worst part wasn't that he denied doping(that is expected of all dopers). It was the way he ruthlessly attacked those who admitted they doped, and the way he treated those on his team who wouldn't dope. He was the ultimate hypocrite.

He has been lying for over 10 yrs now. Getting the truth is a longshot. More than likely all we are getting now is the latest spin(a distorted version of the truth) needed to restart money coming in to his bank accounts.

His answer to yes or no questions:
»www.politico.com/story/2013/01/a···373.html
quote:
Winfrey got right to the point, asking for yes-or-no answers to five questions.

Did Armstrong use banned substances? "Yes."

Did he use EPO? "Yes."

Did he do blood doping and transfusions? "Yes."

Did he use testosterone, cortisone and human growth hormone? "Yes."

Did he do it in all seven of his Tour wins? "Yes."
And then his weasel words justifying what he did:
quote:
"At the time it did not feel wrong?" Winfrey asked.

"No," Armstrong replied. "Scary."

"Did you feel bad about it?" she pressed him.

"No," he said. "Even scarier."

"Did you feel in any way that you were cheating?"

"No," Armstrong paused. "Scariest."

"I went and looked up the definition of cheat," he added a moment later. "And the definition is to gain an advantage on a rival or foe. I didn't view it that way. I viewed it as a level playing field."

Exactly why they didn't replace Armstrong with the #2 person for those 7 Tour de France's. They were cheating and so was the #3, #4, and #5 person. In the end what people call cheating made Armstrong a millionaire. He's worth about $100 million and stands to lose $25-30 of that to repay from cheating. I'd cheat in anything for $60-70 million without a second thought. How about you?

We will see how much he stands to lose, I am betting the Civil suits are going to quite large.

I think alot of people can over look the cheating itself, at the time, for reasons mentioned, everyone was doing it. But then to lie about it for all those years, to drag people through the mud to "defend" himself that he never cheated, to sue people that said he cheated and to top it all off, to not even know who he sued over the years(from the interview)....I hope he loses every dime he's made.

I'm sure you do hope he loses everything but it's been stated he only stands to lose 20-25% of his money. That's on the high side. In reality it will end up like 10-15%. Almost anything in the past is too old to do anything about. This is 10-15 years past when it happened so for financial stuff the status of limitations is out.

My answer is no!

Unfortunately the american mentality is ''Win at all costs''!

As long as you make a shitload of money and win,it doesn't matter how many people you step on or how you do it.

What a role model ,guys like this clown and bonds.clemens and a dozen other american athletes ,are for kids...........especially with parents like the posters here saying that it's alright what he did.

Then you wonder what's wrong with kids nowadays.....mindboggling!

Most people would take the money without a second thought. They'd promptly retire and then they could spend all the time in the world with their kids. That's far better then most parents who toss their kids in daycare/school then after school daycare and get to see their kids for dinner before they retire to watch TV or play video games. We don't have to bother talking about Lance to see we have far worse role models already. A quick glance in the mirror will show most people that. Even you point your finger at others but fail to understand you have 3 more pointing right back at you......mindboggling!

Yes, because no Canadians have ever been banned for PEDs and don't have a ''Win at all costs'' mentality.

You can peruse this: »en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_do···thletics

However, I already know that you are going to point out that there are fewer Canadians than Americans. Big fucking deal. They still doped and got caught for having a ''Win at all costs'' mentality.

And guess who was pointing the finger at him more than anyone..........Carl Lewis ,another cheating piece of crap that never got caught.

Canadian athletes learned a lesson from Seoul...........all you yanks learned was to cheat better and try not to get caught.

I was going to post the same thing.

My other thought is that he's coming (partly) clean now since that will get him more money and attention than continuing with all the denial bullshit.
