Lance Armstrong Doping Admission Could Be Coming Soon


www.huffingtonpost.com

The New York Times reported Friday that Lance Armstrong, who has strongly denied the doping charges that led to him being stripped of his seven Tour de France titles, has told associates he is considering admitting to the use of performance-enhancing drugs.

The best thing would be that this whole generation of athletes would confess. Other athletes have also proposed to talk openly about this issue.

I personally heard inside stories. At this level, all runners take drugs. They would otherwise physically not be able to achieve such results. It's simply impossible.

So, it's better to quit the taboos and to legalize it, rather than to pretend it doesn't happen.

He rides a bicycle... seriously, who cares?

Overpaid useless garbage that contributes absolutely nothing to society.

Honestly I don't care what LA puts in his body, it's his body and no one else's. Just about all anti-steroid propaganda is based on junk science.

I don't believe that there is 'an admission coming soon'.
I think it's Huffington Post (or whoever) just grabbing headlines.
I'd be very surprised to see some kind of admission from him.

Unless something new comes to light, the charges against him are bogus.
He has had hundreds of body fluid tests over the years. He passed them all.

So .. unless it comes straight from his mouth .. I"m not buying it.

Elite sports people should be held accountable. The sports authorities should do everything they can to catch cheats and continue to ban cheats. Pretty simple really. I hope they stick by their ruling and uphold his lifetime ban.

It's not cheating when everybody does it. It's just a well guarded "secret".

You could say the same about many "stars", politicians, bankers, CEOs, etc.
The most qualified people on this planet are mostly underpaid and remain unrecognized.

When one can no longer deny the truth is the time that liars will use to admit it and turn it into a plea for sympathy. "I am sorry....we are so obsessed with winning in the bike race culture and after my testicular cancer I was looking for an edge to regain my competitiveness and then I learned that everybody was doping....." (camera flash - pop, pop) You get the picture.

I think it's very interesting to see him consider this, I would feel awfully embarrassed doing it if I were him; I personally don't think he is as guilty as they say,and how many people have doped before him?

To the OP,

Well i think he should be recognized just for completing this insane feat...

As for the roids, well he should of thought that one out...

Still amazing if you ask me..

Wow....

Here's an idea, ride your bike 100 miles for 20 consecutive days and tell me its not a big deal...

You obviously have no consideration for pushing the human body to the limit..

Just stay at home eat your Cheetos and act like this doesn't exist, you're better off..

They should just legalize performance enhancing drugs in sports.

That way all the cheating athletes will just shrivel up and die off.

Who are we to keep them from killing themselves?

For the folks who actually care about such things we can keep two record books. One for druggies and one for clean athletes.

Only if on party drugs.

Jan Ulrich got screwed a couple of times for testing positive for party drugs like marijuana and ecstasy.

How can you penalize somebody for testing positive for performance stunting drugs?


I'd like to see a return to the early days of the tour. Drunk cyclists throwing glass into the streets and breaking into fist fights and hoping trains. Sort of like the Amazing Race with no rules and a lot of booze.

LOL, ok, let it be then, only the really illegal things.

That would make bike riding across Franc much more interesting.

This man has been tested and tested and retested and came up clean.

It was just last year that he had his TdF medals all removed and "disqualified from all his results since August 1998 for using and distributing performance-enhancing drugs and was banned from professional cycling for life."

Mind you. No one has ever pulled a positive drug test from this man.

If he admits, it'll simply be under pressure.

He was tested erodynamically and found to be perfectly porpotioned to be a cyclist.

I have no faith in the church, because of the flawed leaders over the last 30 yrs or so.
I have no faith in law enforcement, because of the many I have known.
I have no faith in authority figures of any nature, because even a decorated pilot cannot be trusted.

I'm not a great sports fan, and I never wore the plastic yellow wrist band. But if this trust is gone, I'm starting to run real thin on faith.

I hope he admits guilt, and every dime profited by him or his associates must be repaid or given over
Too charity fir cancer research.

That guy suuuuuccckkksss. Hes the reason i see grown a# men wearing speedo shorts in public.
Seriuosly, YOU DONT NEED THE SPEEDOS. You're not winning any races without Lances drugs.

And, could you please burn those dumb rubber bracelits. Its a ten dollar rubberband.
You got hustled.

Of course. I'm not implying that it isn't the case. I'm just advocating that the media and the governments should stop stigmatizing athletes who take steroids or some other performance enhancing type of drug.

It's hypocritical, since all athletes, in any discipline at this level, do it. Some are just better at hiding it.
