i hate lance armstrong. he's a selfish egomaniac.
I mean an admission down the road/cry on Oprah's coach/book deal is seemingly inevitable in situations like this but if he does it now, he's pathetic.
This is a guy who was just months ago denying and still crucifying people who said he doped. This is a guy who tried to pull a "I'm not going to fight it as its' just not worth it" over on the public (almost worked).
If he does it now, it's simply because he can't stand being in the limelight just 3 months after it all went down. More time needs to pass for it to be an 'honest' act of contrition.
Now I say it's all "Seemingly inevitable". It may not be. An admission might result in lawsuits and perjury charges. I think he should clearly go to jail. If lying in a deposition in a multi-million case wont get you in jail, then what the hell will? I haven't read the deposition transcript but how could something he said there not have been a flat out lie?
This NY Times story is clearly a case of his people trying to get the story out there and see what the reaction is from the public/press, etc.
This is a guy who is worth maybe more than a hundred million because of a fraud. They had Bernie Madoff clawback suits - i don't get why sponsors dont' come back after him. I bet a lot of them were too stupid to have anything about doping in their contracts but clever lawyers should be able to figure something out.
