If the DOJ spent the money to go after Bonds and Clemens, they should throw the book at this POS. The evidence of perjury and fraud are overwhelming

None of this changes the fact that he raised almost half a billion dollars through his Livestrong crap.

It sounds like there were two teams involved in collusion, as opposed to Armstrong being the only crooked cyclist in this story.
quote:

They were offered $50,000 "if we didn't be aggressive and challenge for the rest of the race and obviously for the final race in Philadelphia."

The riders, Swart said, agreed to keep it quiet because such a thing wasn't "ethical . . . in the sporting arena."

Swart emphasized in his testimony, the network said, that Armstrong probably would have won all three races anyway.

"So as far as I was concerned," he said, "I was walking away with a bonus."

Swart said the $50,000 was distributed among members of the Coors team.

In an accompanying sworn affidavit from October 2004, Swart said: "We accepted the offer because we considered it to be a good deal for our team. . . . Of course, our agreement had to remain confidential because the bonus of $1 million was guaranteed by an insurance company, and if our deal had become known, the insurance company would have refused to pay, on the basis that it had been defrauded by the arrangement."

Anderson said the $1 million bonus was eventually split among Armstrong's team members.
