- after Joe Pa - another major fall from grace. Read Dan Wetzel's column in the NY Daily News - regarding the people he
ruined or tried to ruin - I am sure in his mind it was in the name of cancer research - but sure smells like protecting the Armstrong
brand. Really sad - nd cycling looks like it is about as clean as the African -American studies program at Chapel Hill.
Everyone knew he was lying by the end so it's not near the level of Penn State. Penn State was a complete shock to the nation.
I was always a bigger Greg LeMond fan. I would like to see him regain his place atop American cycling.
"You’re either a block-gobbler, a farmer, or you’re a damn hunter and playmaker."
No. There were some on here still claiming that there wAs no proof of his doping and believing his lies. Someone couldnt br that Stupid. Right up there with bonds and clemens, no doubt theyvall doped- they surely arent the only ones.

To me it doesn't make him any less of a great cyclist. Just evens the playing field in the dirtiest sport in the world.
"Those who live in the past are cowards and losers" -- Mike Ditka
Sure he's a great cyclist, it doesn't change the fact that's he's a piece a crap.
Lance has probbaly saved hundreds of thousands of lives through Livestrong here and abroad. Protecting molestation is not even in the same universe as doping oneself.
Everyone at the end everyone didn't know or they didnt accept he was lying after USADA stripped him. There were still people on this board that blamed everyone but Lance.
Livestrong doesn't fund research anymore so their mission hasnt really saved lives. They are for support for those that have cancer. That's still a great thing. Livestrong is great, but the man at the forefront of it is a sham.
Ally will beat the crap out of Uga.
Exactly! Ridiculous how people won't drop it in the media. Let the man live his life and let it be the past. It sucks he doped, but everyone was like we all know, and he still dominated. Can't believe Oprah is in on this lol.
"Never look down on anyone unless you're helping them up."
He approached Oprah. I think most people had moved past this fraud until he brought it back to light.
He is about to turn witness on other folks in an effort to get some concessions from the international body and the confession there requires that he try and clean up the PR as best as he can...and who better than Oprah to help him with that?
How about Penn State involved a pedophile using university property for years as his grooming grounds and the university was aware but turned a blind eye.
Lanxe's lies about PEDs and generally being an ass to others who were accused of PEDs and/or threatened to blow his cover is no where near the magnitude of Penn State.
These are the three most uninformed posts in this thread.
And you added so much to it with your post, I guess?
Then inform me. Livestrong is cancer awareness charity, not a cancer research charity. They stopped funding research in 05.
This is no way compares to Penn State. It's best to own your mistake. IMO you think that you are protecting yourself from judgement, shame or pain but in the long run the truth always comes out.
