Lance Armstrong admits doping in Oprah Winfrey interview, AP reports - The Washington Post

Wonder if he'll be subject to perjury charges :s ?

Saw this humorous Tweet

"United States of America rules: ok to lie under oath to Justice Department, but don't you dare sling that crap at Oprah"

I wonder what all the Lance fanboys are going to say now.

"He only cheated because everybody else did..."

That's what the whole world (except for Lance) has been saying all along, too bad it took him so long and so much drama and so much of his own money to come to that conclusion. Makes for a good story though

He isn't and won't be the last athlete to use PEDs, thats just the way it is, I think most people realize that. A lot of professional athletes use some form of PEDs, some are just smarter about cycling on and off them. For me, it's not really about Armstrong using PEDs, it's how he conducted himself when confronted about the use of PEDs, how he was so combative, arrogant and self righteous that makes him a tool.

Unlike ARod, Andy Pettitte, Shawn Merriman and others who just admitted it, people accepted it, moved on and they went on with their athletic careers, or even Bonds who just denied it and kept quite on it, Armstrong attacked people who in the end was just telling the truth. Armstrong sued and tried to bankrupt anyone who would bring his use of PEDs to light, leaving threatening voicemails to Betsy Andreau telling her "I hope somebody breaks a baseball bat over your head", publicly attacking Emma O'Reilly making false accusations that she was a prostitute and alcoholic. There's a long line of individuals and media outlets that Armstrong spent years suing and attacking with strong arm tactics, it'll be interesting to see now how many of those will go back after Armstrong.

Bang on.

Just going to add, at the same time, talking about "living strong" and all this wonderful work he's doing.

Totally self-righteous.

I don't think so because it was over 7 years ago?

Not sure if it's a case of too bad/pity but this news/confirmation will definitely tarnish/take away from how he fought/beat cancer. Don't get me wrong, I am just as against his doping as anybody else is; his biography is just so "conflicted" now - from great accomplishments to "frauds/deceptions"

"The problem with Lance Armstrong isn't the doping or lying about doping. It's that he tried to destroy the lives of people who knew the truth in the effort to protect his clean image."
