Lance Armstrong

Just got done watching The World According to Lance Armstrong on CNN.What I got out of it was they all were doping and admitted it but if they gave up Lance they wouldnt be scrutinized or have to testify .
I still support Lance . Consider this they all had the opportunity to win they all were doping

Missed that! I was at a shop the other day and a gentleman asked if I was still gonna wear my Live Strong band and I said HELL YES! Why would't I? He said because he is a dopeer....I asked him, How does that make him any different than anybody racing at the time?

He left quietly with nothing to say..

I to agree with the what you say, they all doped and still couldn't beat him.

I also saw Friday that the UCI wants 2.95 million Euros back from him.

I was always a Lance supporter. No more.

Regardless of the fact, the Livestrong bracelet is for support of those fighting cancer. I wear mine. Far too many people have been touched by cancer...

You were a lot more tactful than I would have been. My response would have started for an "f" and ended with an "off."

I'd like to demand a refund from Lance for the few rare times I've paid any attention to him.

Never wore the bracelet, never will. But I do have a pink ribbon tattoo with my mom's name in it. (For my dad, I chose a Superman logo)

I don't much care for vendettas and that's exactly what this appears to be. If the entire team was doping, which they were, then they were all on a level playing field. If they couldn't beat him, Oh Well! And I'm sure that his team wasn't the only team that was doping.

When all this happened, the tests that they had at the time, all showed negative results. I think someone just had it out for him and wasn't going to stop until they got what they wanted. I think that this is what happens to any athlete who is pushed to win at any cost. It happens in every pro sport, not just in cycling.

Just think of the guy who busted his but through the years for a shot to ride and did it cleanly. He sat at home with his family while others in his rightful place were cheating. The riders are not only cheating amongst themself they are cheating others out of a chance.

A lot more went on than just taking PED's. Officials were paid off athletes were tipped off of upcoming test and others were bullied into silence.

Poor Lance. He is a victim.
