    hm, not sure. On DirecTV at least, Discovery Fit & Health became OWN at some point. Lifetime is still there separately from OWN.

    That'd kill professional sport stone dead. The advertisers and sponsors would run for the hills and no responsible parent would allow their kids to take up a sport that inevitably led to doping.

    Not if we all just doped anyway. Then the odds would be equal. Everyone dopes, athletes and non-athletes. Women, children, pet dogs, goldfish, kangaroos, everyone and everything. That would mean no more attention to "doping"...:rolleyes:

    dudette we've aready seen it.

    Yes he admits to doping, as well as being a dope, actually nope he said we were dopes for believing for so long.

    Yes he cried, apparently those crocodile tears are where he got the fluid from to submit for his urine samples, that all "passed". Drugs don't show up in body fluids other than blood and urine.

    Yes he feels bad, that his mates eventually turned on him.

    Yes he is confused because Nike dropped him. Apparently it's ok to cheat on your wife but not ok to cheat on the other things you ride :confused:

    Yes he's sorry, that he finally got caught.

    but at the end of the day he only did it because every body else was and he wanted to be the greatest american hero, apparently he didn't watch TV in the 80's because he was always out on his bike.

    Sorry if I spoilt the movie for anyone ;)

    All I know is regardless of whether lance doped or not (and the jury is still out), he is a philanthropist, humanitarian and gave millions of dollars to cancer research and saved the rai forests. And dated Mathew Mconohay.

    The case was initiated by former cyclist and Armstrong teammate Floyd Landis under the False Claims Act. At issue is whether Armstrong and others defrauded the U.S. Postal Service of around $30 million when it sponsored his team.

    He won't go to jail, but he will be chased for some of the dough back from various peeps. That has been going on for a bit now, not just because he is 'fessing up to Oprah. Not only did he cheat at his sport, but he cheated in court by taking libel damages from a newspaper that sought to throw light on his doping. In case you didn't know!
