On the up side, he did help raise a lot of money for good causes. I guess that is the silver lining.

i don't

i think he has made a point that there is no sport or hero or winner untainted by performance enhancing methods that include drugs

coming out in this instance is the same as gay coming out. everyone knew it for years so the only person to benefit is armstrong since he no longer has to live that horrible lie. now that he has faced up to admitting common knowledge then i hope he moves on and dominates triathlon for years to come and is an inspiration for kids to be clean, the poster boy doing it right.

he only made the point that he's a liar and a cheat. you can't read out of that a general crisis of sportsmanship.

my point is that other people can benefit. he ruined a lot of people's lives and profited from lying. so i hope everyone he fucked over sues him and gets compensated.

sure you do but thats what being vindictive brings man

you need to move on and embrace progress

i am sure he will willingly make reparations for damage caused

but he should also be allowed to start over and perhaps he can become a further inspiration

on the back of this i expect cycling will need some amnesty as just about everyone who ever won anything has been doping

and sorry, i didn't mean he made the point, i meant that this event has made the point. like everyone knows barca are doped to death, lots of clubs have had players done for the weirdest masking results. reality is that all these sports require higher performance than what the average athlete can give to be interesting or entertaining. otherwise it will dominated by one freak and be boring. event should be seen as a watershed for all sports to put their hand up and admit similar. but that won't happen because they are full lying cheating bastards who continue to fool the people even after people like lance are prepared to 'fess up

I doubt it but if he does then I'll be somewhat mollified.

The people whose lives he ruined should be allowed to start over.

And he doesn't need millions of dollars to startover.

25 yrs from now all these athletes who get roided up, or take whatever they take to shrink their wee-wee's and pee-pees will be looked at as "trailblazers" or "mavericks" for risking their careers to put up numbers to not only help their own personal legacy but also making sports interesting/more competitive.

who the fuck gives a fuck what lance puts in his body to up his performance? I don't.

my problem is that these dumbass jocks ( and they really are fucking dumb jocks) who continue to lie like people don't know they are jacking? teaches kids a bad lesson. and fuck all you barkley quoters
"im not a rolemodel." Fuck that shit. you play a sport and youre good, you are a role model to a lot of little kids who want to be sports stars. all you're teaching them now is its ok to cheat and lie about it.

Its really a morality thing. And the heads of all the different sports are fucking morons too. either let it go and dont make a big deal about it, or make way stricter rules. if you ban a player half a year with no pay that would set an expamle to these entitled half brained mongoloids playing a kids game for billions of dollars.

are you suggesting that doping in sports is just as taboo as what the escalating use of marijuana was in the past and that the conservatives who don't really understand it will die out

i just seeing it becomming an accepted part of sports by all.

substance abuse of any kind has been in sports for years. They want to have these drug policies but at the same time the leagues and the unions have failed to establish anything to solve the problem for decades.

should they continue the losing battle or should they just let it go?

athletes are put on a pedestal and really should not, but they are. thats sports. but they are human and they have human faults. their faults however have to be covered up and denied on at greater lengths because of their status as "STARS".
