Lance may confess


LINK

Yes, it's not news that a cyclist doped.

However, it is news that someone who up to this point vehemently denied doping and who has hoards of supporters who believe that he is clean will suddenly change his tune and admit that not only was he doping but also that he has been lying to everyone for years.

If he goes through with this, I will forgive him and I will have his back going forward--and I have been one of his biggest critics here. But I think that it takes a lot to come clean (intended) and fess up, especially when you have little to gain by doing so.

He has a lot to gain. He wants to race again and the only way to do that is to work out of deal with USADA that includes him confessing

Are you sure he wants to race again?

re: Lance may confess


From the NY Times this morning

quote:

Lance Armstrong, who this fall was stripped of his seven Tour de France titles for doping and barred for life from competing in all Olympic sports, has told associates and antidoping officials that he is considering publicly admitting that he used banned performance-enhancing drugs and blood transfusions during his cycling career, according to several people with direct knowledge of the situation. He would do this, the people said, because he wants to persuade antidoping officials to restore his eligibility so he can resume his athletic career.

You didn't need to start a new thread...but it does not take "alot" to come clean now. He is already a proven doper and defended himself till the bitter end

He is and will always be a dick. frick him

His approval rating must be about as low as it will ever be. He has to do something to change that to protect his "brand."

The anecdotes coming out of Austin about what a huge douche he was, even when he was a hero to the rest of the country are pretty entertaining.

I'd be interested in knowing how he beat hundreds of drug tests during his career. That was the key piece of evidence for his supporters.
