    My answer is no. After all why bother? So he admitted to doping. It's great that he came clean, I give him respect for that. I'll bet you that everyone in that sport dopes.

    As others have mentioned, Oprah is on time out in our house and why sit through 1.5 hours of talk to hear what we've already be told this week through the media snippets? The cliff notes version of the story is fine with me.

    My Morning Newspaper closed Part 1 ( the remainder this Evening to contend w/) this way --

    "From a legal perspective, his issues are becoming more difficult, not less."

    Wasn't LA 'sue-happy' after the '00 Olympic Bronze? ...pride goeth before the fall.

    Once I got home I watched the interview. It was around an hour or more. After investing a lot of time reading all his books, when I first started cycling, I owed it to myself to see the final chapter begin on the Lance Armstrong saga.

    Since the interview was leaked we all knew the big things that were going to be said. I thought it was interesting that he thought training was more enjoyable than actually winning the tour and EPO was just another thing like airing up your tires and getting a bottle for your bike. Mind boggling

    I watched about halfway... When the ques showed he was lying on some of the answers I stopped. I dont give him credit for coming "clean" (pun intended)... he told lies in bettween the truth. He does not deserve my recognition as being a good guy now. ... not that it matters.

    Lance has a couple of give aways, they were shown when he was in
    Prior interviews about doping where he denied it. He lied enough to see
    All those ques. His biggest one is shaking his head " no " when he's lying . Another
    Is stalling with the answer. Watch for it tonight.
    I'm no documented expert, this is just my opinion.

    I watched it, wanted to hear it from the horses (or jackass) mouth so to speak. I can't really fault him for doping during that time period, I don't think you could have been competitive, much less win the TdF without it. The lawsuits, the slander against others was uncalled for. Admitting what he did is a step in the right direction but I think he still needs to be punished.

    I watched. I think the (non) commercial pauses in the streaming version were just as long as the interview part. It could have been condensed to about 40 minutes. Very irritating.

    I've always been a supporter of bigger than life LA. He doped, everybody doped, I don't' really care but to see him answer questions with obvious lies is hard.

    We don't have any limits on Oprah in our house because this is the first time it's ever been tuned in.

    On a positive note it did get me off my ass to hook up the DVI output of the computer to the TV and receiver so I can stream shows from the computer on the big screen now.

    Not quite, he said, it could not be won clean in the EPO/Oxygen Doping Era. Which is probably true.

    It was 2.5 hours less short programming time outs. I watched it all in another tab on the good ole Innerwebz. I'm with him=never look back ... read..cannot take away those 7 moments he stood on the top step, however

    yes the way he got there was somewhat bad and then to protect his cheating his further actions were very very bad. and now the question is what is he going to do to make amends and can he even change.

    the bigger question how does sport seriously clean itself up. even a tennis pro admitted recently the tests are not given anywhere nearly enough.

    perhaps the only way to assure all are clean is to place all athletes competing in an event on lockdown for several days prior...

    what are the chances of that happening..

    ..nature is to win at all costs if winning is within reach

    as he says not good, very bad

    he said that a lot.

    the interview can be best summed up as I did it, I'm not snitching on anyone else, I am not sure I can change, I am bad. What I did was not good. I cant look back.

    he actually said that TdF can not be won 7 times in a row without doping...

    however, Chuck Norris said it was BS.

    so? whats wrong witht hat, the top 20 always dope. and in cycling which is like the mother of all ****ers of dope sports it takes like 3,2ms to figure that out. I don't say its wrong though, they all do it its part of the game. if you want to win you need the juice and thats it basically. If you win a lot thewn youre doing dope. otherwise someone else would win, its easy as that really.

    now when reading this you might think that I the lovely and ever so empathic mr car bone is kinda cynical, and thats wrong because its the ****ing way it works and that it, end oif discussion. you wanna win you dope. you wanna win a lot, you dope a lot. thats it.

    yeah thats ****ing it.

    however, i still think he is baddest mutha****er in the sport, since the playing field is leveled, they all play at the same terms here. everyone knows what it takes, its no surprise. never have been either. seriously riding a ****ing bicle for like 10 hours straight at 50km/h average. you gotta be ****ing kidding me.

    so you were saying??

    hey hey hey...

    no serious talk about Lance in this thread.

    Head to the other threads to get your debate on.

    hay hay hay

    This thread is obviously meant to have fun with the entire Lance debacle.

    How could it be 'mis fortune' on his part, if he was cheating and lying about it?
    mis fortune, would be riding along , minding your own business... when a bus came out of nowhere and ran you over.

    No, I'm not dancing in the streets either... I just think "Schadenfreude" is not accurate in this case.
    Lance was driving his own Bus when it ran him down.

    I had to leave with about an hour left of the interview. I wanted to finish it, but am going to vote "I don't care"...because after sleeping on it...I don't care at all.

    Call it morbid curiosity, but yeah, I watched. What the hell, too cold and dark to ride. Burned through my usual website list (e-mail, debit card balance, BS on FB, etc.), and about wore OUT YouTube this month. Maybe if FuelTV would show more UFC VARIETY, instead of Jones V. Evans 4 times this week.....

    I AM glad it was over before "Real Time"; Rula Jebreal is HHHOOOOTTTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
