The interview with Lance Armstrong was a travesty. This was not a man who was humbly apologetic…this was an arrogant man pissed that he was caught. Am I suppose to listen to this crap and exclaim “It’s all good Lance, I forgive you for shattering dreams”. Every time he doped and won a race he took another athlete’s chance at an endorsement….he got richer and more powerful with each race he won. He annihilated anyone who went against him in any way, fellow athletes, reporters, bike mechanics…There were many innocent people who were asked questions and replied honestly who now live in another country because they couldn’t get a job in the USA. He isn’t sorry…if he could have continued to lie and then believed he would still be shouting his innocence from the roof tops for all to hear. If his idea was to go on Oprah and sway public opinion…he failed miserably. If the idea was to go on and say he is sorry and then the USADA would cut the amount of time banned…epic fail. Right now he can not compete in the local Boy Scout bike race on the 4th of July or the NYC marathon…nothing. He is banned for life. His arrogant “sorry” ONLY has to do with being able to compete again. USADA stay strong…this man cost you millions of dollars. Life time ban? Hell yes…totally appropriate.
