    Oh well... He's only worth $125 million. None of it matters anymore.

    Without a single positive test. What a witch hunt.

    I know the guy beat cancer, and he's an "Inspiration", but I've never not thought the guy was a turd.

    I find it pretty funny that ESPN is wording it "Lance gives up battle against..." Kind of an odd way to word it, sort of summoning the whole cancer thing.

    Like 99% of the US, I don't give a shit about bike-riding or bike-riders, but wasn't Lance really really really adamant about not doing anything illegal?
    Why don't all the athletes of the world just form a mega-super-union and just come out and say, "Yeah, we all do shit. What can you do, this is the way it's going to be. Keep buying tickets rubes."

    I really don't give a shit he he cheated. What annoys me is how our tax money is being used to policing sports. They are sports, who gives a fuck if they cheat. It's not a matter of life or death, who cares.

    But if it wasn't going to finding sports cheats it'd go to something even worse, like a study to find out the effect of Viagra on cats age 10 and above's feces, when covered by brand 2's cat litter.

    Not surprised. Frankly, you didn't need to be Einstein to figure out what the was going on. I don't really think it diminishes his achievements, because he was only doing exactly what the rest of the field was doing. Marion Jones never tested positive, either: it's your teammates that get you in the end.

    If you're innocent you fight until the end. Ultimately, being able to look in the mirror and know what you did and accept it is the only thing that matters. But I wouldnt let someone throw it on me if not true.

    Why is there a debate on whether he's innocent or not? He's obviously not innocent. Everyone who was there says the same exact thing: he's not innocent.
    Must have something to do with there not being a test for EPO at the time.

    The only reason Armstrong's not fighting this is because, literally, he seems to be the only person involved in the case who says that he didn't dope. His own fucking teammates have given evidence against him, and not one of them has backed him up.

    plenty of his teammates have backed him up. The only ones that have come out against him are the ones that got caught cheating AFTER they left his team and then ratted him out. Fucking Floyd Landis is so broke that he's crashing on a friend of a friend's couch. He's one of the biggest guys screaming about Lance. Make you wonder what his motivations are.

    Obviously? There are no dirty tests. There's nothing 'obvious' about any of the accusations.

    They haven't backed him up. At most, some have said that they saw no evidence of him doping, but plenty of his former teammates (12 of them) have given detailed evidence of what they saw with their own eyes.

    12 out of how many teammates he's had? The big one is Hincapie. We'll see if they reveal anything about his testimony. The two highest profile ones that are speaking publicly about it Hamilton and Landis got popped on blood tests. If they were cheating right along with lance, how did they pop and he didn't?

    That's not true. George Hincapie and Frankie Andreu for instance were never caught doping. And yet, they testified, under oath, that they did EPO together with Armstrong, to help win several championships.
    That's not true either. Armstrong's urine samples from the late nineties have been kept frozen, and tested once an EPO test was developed. The results were positive.

    Havent they also gone back and retested B samples for different substances after it became known riders were using them and Lance still came up clean? I think its disgusting that people like Landis got pinched and look to take down the greatest Tour rider ever just because they are pissy little bitches. Its sad that he is wiped from the books while never even failing a single test.

    Um, Armstrong did get busted. At the time, the team explained it away by saying that the reading was the result of a prescription that he'd been given, and that was originally accepted. It's now said that that explanation was false and that the team doctor falsified a backdated prescription. Others have given evidence in that regard.

    During Lance's championship run, no one was caught doing EPO, because there was no test developed. They got caught later, not when they did it with Armstrong.

    No, that's not true either. B samples did get retested once a test became available, and Armstrong's came up positive.
