    @Thegrif I always see these Armstrong wannabes riding in packs, hogging the road in their "cute" little spandex tights. Give me a break! I don't want even start with cyclists on the road...

    @methinks still when I read "guys in spandex" it cracks me up.
    I feel the same way.
    I really don't know what to say about these spandex cowboys.

    'Fessing up to Oprah after the statute of limitations for perjury expires doesn't really make up for years of conspiracy and cheating.

    I agree. Not that I care a lot about anyone who rides a bike for a living, but I can appreciate the hours on hours of training they must go through. I kinda liked knowing there was a guy out there completely dominating his sport, but now we all know how it was able to do it.
    It's a little disappointing, still the guy did whip cancer, right?

    @Thegrif Speaking as a former cancer nurse, I'd guess his physicians, nurses and pharmacists had more to do with his recovery than Mr Armstrong's personal strength of character.

    I think Lance Armstrong belongs in the same heap of garbage that the steroid using pro baseball players belong in. They made millions of dollars acting as role models to kids around the world all the time knowingly cheating. They are a disgrace to sports. None of those baseball players should ever get into the Hall of Fame and Armstrong should never be allowed to compete again. Let him serve as a role model for others who wonder whether or not it is worth it to cheat.

    Who cares ? Amazing how many people worry so much what these millionaire cry-baby, pro athletes or the super rich, out of touch nut jobs in Hollyweird say or think BUT
    refuse to take the time to examine the politicians living out of our pockets & tax dollars. And the dumbing down of America continues !

    I dont care that he was a better drugged up cyclist then the other drugged up cyclists. The way he treated the people who testified of his drug use is reprehensible. The hope he has given to cancer patients is wonderful. Is he a really bad person who did something good or a really good person who did something bad? I don't know.

    I kept thinking about him when my son-in-law got testicular cancer and maybe some of that hope helped pull Mike through. He's now a 10 year survivor. Too bad all the good that Armstrong portrayed has now been tainted.

    I stood up for Armstrong for over a decade. I believed that someone tested as many times as he was tested and never caught had to be clean. I wish his cancer foundation well and much success. But I don't need to ever hear the name Lance Armstrong again.

    No way he should ever be allowed to compete in anything ever again, plus he should have to pay the lawsuit money back, court cost, and interest.

    Except getting rich cheating and bullying his accusers out of their careers and using the cancer car? Take your pick. Otherwise I don't care that he doped, it is just that he is a liar and a bully.

    Not that simple. Where you representing your country in a globally sanctioned event when you rode your dang bike? Did you have responsibilities to your fellow riders ( who spent their whole lives training and were honest) and nations to be honest with them when you rode your dang bike? Did you falsely sign registration documents to compete in a global event that you knowingly was untrue simply for the purpose of cheating, just so you could ride your dang bike? I commend Armstrong for what he did for cancer awareness and respect his toughness to beat it, but as a cyclist his competing days are over.

    I think this whole thing has been made too much of a big deal. I don't know the truth, nor do I really care to know the truth. Even if he can pull off the fashion of ( http://www.bootzies.net ) boot tights, not everyone in the race will miss him, though there will be some that will miss him. Whatever happens, happens.

    I feel that he has done wrong in the Sports and he should be held accountable. Look at positive things he did in helping people with the fighting in cancer.

    Let me get this right to see if I understand it. He confesses to cheating, screwing a lot of people with lawyer suits & getting God knows how much money by using drugs & now this A-HOLE wants to only get a slap on the wrist & the ban lifted?
    Personally I would hang him up by his nuts until they fell off!!

    Whether it's cycling, weightlifting, track or whatever, EVERYONE at a "high level" in those sports is dirty.

    Every single one. Carl Lewis tested positve, and the USOC covered it up.

    I won't be surprised to see this comment removed because people don't like admitting their "greatest heroes" are cheats.

    I would like to ask him....Why bother trying to go back, although rumor is he wants to do triathalons. I watched the Tour de France each time he competed, and other years. Each team is made of mixed Nations, so the only time he represented the USA was for the Olympics. They want him to tell all....names, Docs, the complete system, everyone who was involved in the background....plenty of people! But why bother......each team has their own system, and each system keeps ahead on ways to beat it. The doping was in cycling WAY before Lance got there and it's still there. The goal of every team has one member that the others are required to support; the teams change every year. Steroids and doping is part of every sport.....they are human, not a super-hero. Teach your children what a real hero is.....maybe their Grandfather, Father, Mother, or someone who serves others. Lance couldn't have fallen, if people didn't put him so high in the first place. In my eyes, he was a great cyclist who got caught up in a system he tried to control.....sometimes he won, but I saw others blow right by him, too. For those who keep wining about him.....GET OVER IT! Of course he lied.....they all do! I have my Livestrong armband , I wear it and will continue to wear it.....it represents an organization....not just one man who beat the odds of cancer. All the Doctors, nurses, and care can't beat it unless you have the will to do so!

    If you dope, then you're a dope. So long Lance, you deserve what you get and you get what you deserve. Many would be happy just to compete in the Tour De France while you felt the need to cheat to win. Lance Armstrong is a disgrace to the athletic community.
