Re: Lance Armstrong admits to Doping

Not even successful. I've won the same amount of Tour De France's as Lance.

I'm sure he was referring to the one WC Armstrong won in 1993.

Oh but we love them strong personalities when they are high, don't we? We love to see the jerks with attitude design to win at all cost ala Mcenroe, Schumacher, C. Ronaldo, Tyson etc. This is what makes them successful, the mentality, take all the drugs away from everybody and I would still belive Armostrong would be an outstanding cyclist. Take the drugs away from just Armostrong? You problably wouldn't even have heard his name. Nobody here will be ever in that position here that these outstanding athletes were as far as doping.

The hypocracy is too much for everybody to be knocking on Armstrong while the majority of the public doesn't care to know how their favorite sport's doping is regulated and run, only when a big start gets hung to dry, so things will continue to be the same. Rather than all this attention be directed at Armostrong, I would much prefer to go into the authorities and regulation of each sport. why not go hey, how is my favorite anti-doping regulated, is it taken seriousl?, does it have enough money to run efficiently, does it have a lot of loopholes? In Tennis for starts this is a big yes, it is not taken seriously enough. I want the biological passport installed, I want to see the people on the authorities who helped Lance on the inside to hung dry as well, not just him.

It is innocent to believe that when there is millions and millions involved and there is a wide open door for dope usage that human will not be opportunistic out of ideology.

Re: Lance Armstrong admits to Doping

I thought the second part of the interview was a total "woe is me" show by Lance. But I have to give it to him, the story about Kristin was a great piece of fiction. He made her out to be this embodiment of honesty and integrity, who didn't approve of his doping, when there were several witness reports that she supported it and even handed out PEDs to the other riders. I wonder how long it took the 2 of them to come up with this crap.

Re: Lance Armstrong admits to Doping

forgive my stupidity, i really don't understand, are you never going to win if you don't use those doping stuff? I guess you are going to get faster a little bit right? If so, why bother to harm your body and reputation?

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

Epic movies, like brokeback mountain, are seldom found in the industry or worthy for the mainstream viewer. As often as I have watched the clips of this movie, I always find something more to it. For one, the gay stuff doesn't enter the picture for me, only the dimension of the highest love I have ever witnessed in life or on film.

Hey Mimi it's so nice seeing u here.

I think a lot of ppl can't forgive him bc he bully a lot of ppl, lied and cheated for years and years and even after he hit caught he still lied and lied, only when he was in his knees he confess everything but that's after a lot if ppl for hurt and lied and he damaged the foundation he build.


I wouldn't tell him to kill himself but he needs to bring back the money he took, ask for a reall sorry not a fake one just bc u got caught and dedicate his time to talk and take action about drugs and sports.

It will change ppl's hearts.

And we he and sport is over, he should be per ban from any professional sports

Hug it out as long as it takes, people

for those who do not forgive him, i don't think they are going to change their opinion towards him no matter what remedies he does. So thats why, if i were him, i either would disapear quietly and live in seclusion or kill myself

Re: Lance Armstrong admits to Doping

But Mimi what about his family, I know he did a very bad thing but human life are more then that, he needs to live with his shame, he can't die, he is also a son, a father a husband.

His punishment is to live with a mark of disgrace all the days of I'd lives

He has no sense of honor whatsoever, the idea of suicide won't enter his mind. Nor seclusion.
