Hey The Chief . . . you are the f*#king pathetic loser. What have you dedicated you efforts to, besides being a willy waver?

It's hard to believe that someone of Armstrong's tenacity and dedication would roll over and choose not to fight anymore if he was truly innocent . Is it impossible for him to focus on his charity and fight the charges?

Perhaps after years of battle he has decided that he will never be exonerated in that process, so continued engagement has no upside.

That indicates nothing about whether he is guilty or innocent. Just that he's done fighting what he thinks is a pointless fight. Giving up a pointless fight is not inconsistent with being a champion and fighting long odds where it matters and where one's actions can influence the outcome.

That is why LA threw in the towel today.
Whatever dude . . . you are still an as#@&%e.

There is no false hero . . . just an extremely pathetic nobody that is dissing on someone that has accomplished something in their life.

There are better things to spend our tax dollars on!!!

I propose that those dollars be spent on research into, or solutions to, the global warming problem. This actually has two huge advantages: first, it channels time, money, and human energy into something useful instead of a complete waste, and second, The Chief will hate it just as much! The rest of us get some real benefit, and he gets to keep on ranting -- it's a win/win!

+1 on the bingo.

It's just frickin' entertainment. Who cares? And he does a lot of good for folks who don't have any hope at all.

7 new TdF winners? Joke. Though I'd love to see Jan Ullrich get one of them.

Armstrong IS a wizard, so it's right to have a witch hunt, eh?

Man, what a mess.

What would really kill me, though, is losing the rockin' girl

Does this mean they give him his cancer back too?

Sounds like The Chief probably wouldn't mind that either.

Eggs ackley, my man! Majority of dopers, minority of non-dopers, anyway. They all seem to admit this. Coyly, of course.

Chief, the Tea Party needs you, bud.

I might be an as#@&%e but not close to the LOOOOOOOOOOOOSER lying cheat that swindle all you sheep out there over the years into believing he was a perfect saint and then stole millions in prize money and endorsements.

Who ever implied that anyone is a saint? You've got some issues dude . . . professional sports are all about performance enhancement. Cyclists have been "enhancing" long before Lance was even born. Pull your pin head out of your ass and focus on your issues.

The Chief,

Your take on it is based on moral righteousness about the perception of unfairness due to scrutiny of a winning competitor.

Armstrong is justifiably standing open to the court of civil opinion to rule VS. sport associations with vested image issues.

All the Human Rights and sports Tribunals and other quasi-legal comfort courts have no real weight if an individual dares to face the real legal logisticians.

The guy wants to take it public for real. Let him.

Let me ask you this: if you didn't dope, and came in 2nd place to Lance, would your thoughts be different?

I always wondered if the loss of the testosterone which the other (missing) ball should have pumped out was never an issue nor slowed the man down. Clearly the man has drive and talent. He wouldn't back off so easily if he thought he could win his case.

ghost,
Seems you just get a giant boner at the thought of pushing some hero off a pedestal.

LOL!
