Yes, but at this point, it's raisin-sized.

Only if you tighten them enough so that the veins you need to inject stand out.

I learned that The Sporting News is still around today.

Isn't he gonna open himself to a bunch of litigation if he does confess?

I expect a bunch of lawsuits from his sponsors and from the people he managed to make "unhireable" in the cycling world due to his bullying because they dared to say he was dirty at the peak of his career?

Ha, the comments on the article are arguing about Obama.

You get banned because the ruling body says you doped....so admitting that your did gets you what?

I understand it gives him a shot at being reinstated by other ruling bodies than cycling. He wants to run marathons and triathlons, but as long as he rejects denies the truth he can't do that either.

I don't have any real interest in this other than one thing. Didn't Lance have all sorts of cancer (besides testicular) show up on scans? Wasn't it in his liver and brains and lungs at one point? And them it all magically disappeared? I could be remembering wrong, or this could be recollections from when I was young and drunk all the time.
If all this cancer magically disappeared so quickly, and he admits that he was doping, could this mean that the doping could have positive effects for other people?

Everybody in professional cycling dopes. He should come out and admit that he did, he's sorry (or not), but he should also expose the sport for what it is. Cycling is lucky to have had a celebrity like Armstrong to bring some attention (and money) to the sport. Back to the niche with you, cycling!

The cancer was in remission when he started his cycling career, so i would imagine the odds of his doping having anything to do with his cancer are very low.

Ah, thanks. I figured someone would have a better recollection than my dumb ass. :)

Oprah cured Lance's cancer as she has chosen a powerful cyclist to lead her disciples towards the promise land.

Dis this SOB actually have cancer or did he just fake it so he could get bicycle sitting surgery?
 
2013-01-12 10:37:59 AM
Aside from all the potential lawsuits, doesn't he open himself up to perjury charges as well?
 
2013-01-12 10:59:45 AM
So he's announced... that he plans to confess.

So he's confessed, right? We don't need the Oprah interview. He's confessed. Why are we going through the rest of this?
 
2013-01-12 11:05:00 AM
I do not get why he is doing this, he has nothing to gain. His life time ban from competition would only get reduced to at best an 8 yeah ban. On a positive note Statute of limitations is up so he wouldn't have to worry about losing significant money or jail time. It's looking more like if he does its to get it off his chest and try to turn around his image for Livestrong.

I sort of think that it would be better just to have it on his conscience for the rest of his life. He's been at death's door, so he is somewhat familiar with the emotions one goes through. I wouldn't know, but I'm willing to bet that it would be a biatch knowing that your life was a lie and that it's way too farking late to change it.

He f*cking better apologize to Filippo Simeoni, and all the teammates he forced into doping.

*looks around for Lance apologists*

*crickets*

8/10. You're a god amongst trolls, would have gave you 10 if you threw in the "never failed a drug test" drivel.

He is still said to be worth an estimated $100 million.

Nice.  I laughed hard enough to go into a nice coughing fit.  Thanks!

A distinct possibility. Those bracelets can be a biatch to slip on your arm.

Armstrong sent a text message to The Associated Press early Saturday that said: "I told her (Winfrey) to go wherever she wants and I'll answer the questions directly, honestly and candidly. That's all I can say."

Just like those other times I answered the questions directly, honestly and candidly... and lied through my teeth.

Anyone wanna whine about "circumstantial" evidence now?

Um. No. Armstrong had already won Tour de France stages before he was diagnosed with cancer. Most notably in 1995, the day after his teammate Fabio Casartelli died in a crash.
 
2013-01-12 03:41:07 PM
Huh. I figured he'd try to keep his name in the clear until he died.

Metastatic testicular cancer is one of the few cancers we can still cure. Normally, the terms "metastatic" and "incurable" are used interchangeably, but testicular cancer, seminoma-type especially, melts away when you expose it to chemo.

Armstrong got four cycles of a regimen called EP, which is etoposide and cisplatin. The standard treatment also adds bleomycin, but he didn't get that because it causes pulmonary fibrosis and would have compromised his athletic career. That should tell you all you need to know. I don't regard him as a hero for beating cancer, because the cancer he had was really one step above "bad head cold."
