Why would anyone with a functional brain take stock in anything motivational or about life that he says.

In a way, not everyone can do it. Probably the top 10 or so teams cheat in the tour. Just establish a biological passport at a target hematocrit level and off you go.

I think Armstrong should confess despite the legal consequences. As an avid cycling fan, I'm certainly aware that they are all doped. Over the years, Lance attacked and belittled his detractors. His on the road attacks of Christophe Bassons and Marco Pantani were beyond sickening. He not only questioned Greg LeMond's character, he destroyed his bicycle brand through relations with Trek.

You and I both know that the percentage of people with a functioning brain are in short supply.
He is getting acting classes as we speak to teach him to cry
he will go on about the stress of being at the top of his sport and people will fall for it.

Sky news say that he is close to a confession hoping that he will be able to continue to do triathlons. Personally i don't like the man. His arrogance is astounding and of course he is a serial cheat. But i am jealous cause he's "had a do" at sheryl crow

There is a strong potential that he caused his cancer from doping, Alberto Contador suffered a rare aneurysm congruent with EPO usage.


This is the biggest bs I have ever heard. When I get home at 8 Ill show you and PROVE to you why you couldn't be more wrong.

Does the word integrity mean anything to you?


Absolutely. I could care less about his bicycle rides. I do care about real things like cancer and the raising of money for cancer research. With your insensitivity showing from your left testicle joke, I'm going to guess you don't have anyone in your immediate family with cancer.


How do you derive insensitivity from my testicular joke aimed at Armstrong as being focused on an entire group? That's a strawman btw. With your logic, I could go rob banks all day and give the money to cancer research. Think they'll be happy? Or maybe con a few people from craigslist...or...See my point yet?
how is he robbing money and giving it to cancer research ? Oh you think I'm talking about his own winnings. No. I said raised money and awareness.

You can't do good when you have blood on your hands. It's an oxymoron.

I'm sorry, he has blood on his hands? Because he cheated at bike riding? He lost all his titles and winnings. I'm talking about him raising awareness and much needed money for cancer

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.

(visit the link for the full news article)



Correct me if I am mistaken, but it would appear to me that "considering admitting to the use of performance-enhancing drugs" is a deliberation that is, in itself, an admitting to the use of performance-enhancing drugs.

He raised money because of his prior bout with cancer and then going on to have seven wins. The message was you too can survive cancer and go on to be the best. Very inspiring to those who chose to give money. BUT, he lied. He was doping. Therefore, his message means jack squat. It's worthless. Don't you get it?

You say you're about integrity but your completely oblivious to the implications of lying. That's part of integrity you know? Ok, I'm a cancer survivor and I'm going to run across Canada to raise money. Excuse me while I step out behind the trailer and bump a shot of roids in my butt while all those other chumps running drug free go unnoticed and raise nothing.

What you're telling me is, you don't care how that money for cancer is raised. And you say you've got integrity...

I don't doubt that it takes an incredible amount of athleticism to achieve what he has, though he did have some help or did we completely miss the subject of this thread? Regardless, that wasn't really the point. Even if he did achieve all that on his own, he's still overpaid and he still contributes nothing to society. How about instead of paying athletes and entertainers millions a year, we stop paying teachers, cops, firefighters and military (the people that actually do something for other people) minimum wage?

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.



you're still supporting this thug and liar?

Sorry if this if off topic, but do you remember the Canadian Olympian, Ross Rebagliati?

He had his medal taken away for "non performance enhancing drugs".

He claimed it was second hand smoke


He got his medal back!

It's a shame that Lance Armstrong doped up with performance enhancers as he was an inspiration to many people especially cancer victims/survivors.

The plus side is that they will regulate this sport with much more scrutiny going forward.

It's foolish to just completely ignore what he's done because his method. Regardless of what you or I think of him he got cancer, beat it and did so while performing at the highest physical levels of human capability. Do I think he's the hero everyone thought he was? No.i never thought he was clean..

I do however think he knows more about athletics, nutrition, sports medicine and injury recovery/ prevention and probably cancer than 95% of the idiots who talk on the subjects.

I don't know about that. How much of the charity he founded is tax deductible?

And then there is this...

Also, last month, anecdotes surfaced of Armstrong receiving six-figure daily fees for ride-with-Lance-type benefits. One 2005 event was in Canada for the British Columbia Cancer Foundation’s Tour of Courage. And in Norway, the newspaper VG reported a disagreement over whether $400,000 went to Livestrong or Armstrong for a 2009 visit to Oslo. When it was established that the appearance deal was to pay Armstrong, and not Livestrong directly, cyclist Dag Erik Peterson said he still thought the money was for the charity, saying that he saw Armstrong riding in Livestrong cycling gear and “mixed his roles. That’s not fair.”


And this...

In October, Betsy Andreu and Kathy LeMond described to Roopstigo a 2008 email Armstrong had sent to Sen. John Kerry that threatened to use the Livestrong database against the Democratic Party if then-presidential hopeful Barack Obama did not attend the cyclist’s cancer summit. Although there is no evidence that Armstrong acted on the ultimatum—Obama was in Germany and did not attend the event—it is against 501(c)(3) regulations for a tax exempt organization to wield political influence either for or against political candidates.


Forbes
And for the record, the Livestrong charity has nothing to do with funding cancer research, just awareness. He's a con man..

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


Not so well guarded is it. He got a life ban. And not everyone does it. You must live in a world of make believe.

He got a life ban because he's a figurehead athlete, and it makes the news headlines. Not everyone "dopes", but the majority do... and that's a fact. Just go listen to the podcast where Joe Rogan interviews Victor Conte. Even if some of these athletes aren't taking illegal drugs, they're constantly experimenting with & using something new to push their limits.

That's the way sports works now & it's not going to change. Honestly I don't really see why it matters, because whether it's now or in the near-future sports will evolve & so will the athletes. With the advent of nanotechnology, bionics, genetic engineering, and such. I say let the athletes compete in their respective sport with freedom to chemically enhance. Most of them already do, it just goes unnoticed; largely because they've acclimated to the way the testing works.

I admit he's a scumbag .. I wasn't trying to argue his character, like I said before I never thought he was clean and was disgusted by him when I read about the way he treated people who spoke out about it. It just heightened my suspicion with his response to allegations. Doesn't mean we can't learn from him and his experiences.

Fair enough. I do find it ironically poetic that he sued anyone challenging his doping denial. I think he got 3 m and now he has to pay it back. Karma at its finest
