He's a damned liar. He would have been much better off if he had just fessed up years ago. People would have been disappointed then. Now, he'll be pretty hated after the way he's deceived everyone.

The worst part about Lance is all the people's lives he destroyed keeping his secret.

He lied... But a lot of people have benefited from all the money his cancer foundation has raised through the years...

More life's helped than damaged...

Actually, Livestrong gives a very limited amount of their money towards research and whatnot

I don't really care though. Every Tour De France racer takes PEDs, and he just has more fame on it. It's not like his lying about it did anything to anyone

What he did with Livestrong is great.
But he did ruin people's lives keeping his sporting life "lie" alive.

I'm disappointed that there actually people who watch Cycling. If I wanna watch a bunch of sweaty guys in spandex I'll just tune into the live web feed that Mexico, SCS, Bobzilla, and Helldog have every weekend.

You're entitled to be tuned in, you're holding the camera after all and making weird noises.

Livestrong. In addition, the foundation has scaled back its research funding, although many people still assume Livestrong is a research-based foundation.

Livestrong’s CEO, Doug Ulman explained the motivation for pulling research funding. “Most organizations are about the disease. They’re about trying to solve a disease, and we are about trying to improve the lives of people that are battling the disease.”

The guy cheated in a bicycle race. Its a sport no one cares about.

He came back from a life threatening disease and used a game to raise over 450 million dollars for cancer research.

People take sports way too seriously. He did something to help a REAL LIFE problem. Sports are sports. They are fantasy. When it comes down to it, they are just a game.

People criticizing Lance should look themselves in the mirror and ask if they have ever made a mistake. No game in any sport is bigger then what he did for cancer research.

This is really hard to just begin to list...just read some of the things he would do to teammates and ex teammates. He would use his extensive PR department ot destroy anyone who tried to call him out.

One reporter lost his job because of affiliations of his emloyer with sponsers of Lance...it goes on and on...not one appology from him..I hope everyone of those people sue him for slander.

After years and years of denial of using PED's, he comes clean and confesses to using PED's. The only reason I can think he came clean about this is because he must be getting ready to start something new.

What? I don't know.

When I first said he was the king of cheaters, I had some of 'You hate americans, he's a hero, he never get caught.'

Fact is I was right on the dude.

Nobody cared about his country, he was just a cheater.

People have been cheating since the dawn of time. Cocaine, PEDS, Steroids, always something. Everyone denies it because sports are meant to be a physical and mental endurance. I don't have a problem with Lance Armstrong, and personally, I think a bunch of French people are ****** off that they lost a handful of times to an American in the only sport they're good at. We build up our heroes so ultimately we can tear them down. It is incredibly annoying.
