I can't argue with what your saying about Flav/Massa, I'm certainly not defending the tubby one although I can't help but admire his berlusconi-esc efforts with the catwalk. I think a mechanical failure while leading by a mile in Hungary really cost Massa that title, you need a bit of luck and Massa clearly hasn't had much....getting hit on the head by a spring that fell of your fellow countryman's car for example.

You can slam Armstrong for allegedly bullying people and allegedly pushing product. But to pretend Lance was the only cheat in cycling, but to single him out for using substances like EPO really only highlights the willful ignorance of the masses. Unfortunately people are more like lemmings and do what the media want them to do. Hate this person, love that person, worship worship worship. Really sad state of affairs, so many people worshiping false idols, and loving their television.

USADA has had it out for Lance and are using it to promote their 'brand.' Its all about image and bull, Lance got what he deserved probably, but to hear all the sheeple bleat about Lance, well its pretty depressing, get over your heroes, there are no heroes, only deluded minds.

Lance with out that substance is still probably in the top 1% of human beings so far as what he does, blame him for being 'successful' in what people today now consider 'successful' because he is, he really is, but people love t

@prof-x - I think most of us can forgive the doping given that that was the culture of cycling during this era. What people don't forgive is the lying and the way that Lance went after those who had the courage to tell the truth. He surely deserves everything that is happening to him now.

I have no idea what type of person lance is or was, but why has this come to public domain now after so many years. They always new he used stuff just like all top riders did then and now. At that level they use whatever is needed to compete, it may be wrong, but it is what it is and they all denie as anything else is career suicide.

Well said Mark Webber.

Regardless of the previous drugs culture in cycling Armstrong has always protested his innocence and has gone as far as to successfully sue people who claimed he was a drugs cheat. Now that he finally admits his past he still shows no remorse.
If he wants to gain back some respect he should give all the millions he earned during his tarnished career to cancer research.
