A living legend..... A lot of you need to wake up and realise that the man has almost single handedly raised $500 millon in the fight against cancer due to his achievements. He is an inspiration to everyone and should be recognised as that regardless of these accusations. Get off your high horses and realise that lives will be saved because of this mans dedication, which has been made possible by his dedication to the sport and his ultimate success. If more people could follow this example then we'd all be better off. Find something else to whinge about. LIVESTRONG

USADA integrity is intact. I (International Whistleblower Allen Carlton) provided the USADA and other cycling organizations with the game. The same proof and evidence I provided to UPS and FED-EX who decide to partake in a piece of the pie and remain silent. The proof and evidence shows Lance Armstrong sponsor (USPS) an accomplice and what they are capable of to include murder (Postal Holocaust) see http://www.scribd.com/doc/16712387/US-Supreme...

Agree. It would be good if more people focus on the positives. USADA's actions are damaging cycling and alienating people from a good cause.

On one hand yeh where is the physical proof or positive but I think the USADA can make ruling based on testimony. You voluntarily participate in these sports and sign up for individual events you subject yourself to the rules/rulings of those governing bodies.

I'm still wondering how a private United States entity can strip a Tour de FRANCE title.

Lance has just played the game the way he found it. No winning. Y list is any different. With their resources, heads could strip me of all my tour titles and ban me for life. Imagine a job where you go to work every day trying to ruin good folks

I can't believe how rude people are to each other just because they have a difference of opinion! Some people think he is guilty and others don't, that's fine. However I don't believe this so called hero of cycling who is so determined and dedicated coming back to win the tour 7 times is now suddenly just going to give up and accept an unjust verdict! My guess is he knows the game is up and doesn't want the full details to come out so the general public are left wondering. I think he is a very shrewd operator who has won over the hearts and minds of a lot of folks. He is a fantastic athlete, I agree but ultimately he looked around, saw others doping and didn't want to be left behind! Lots of people will disagree with me and you are entitled to your opinion.

You only see the bed and 2 poeple in ,nothing else , all the witness lie of course .:)
yes but you would only know for sure she was in bed with youR best friend without further evidence. There are processes to protect people in society that should apply to all. That is why we live with the freedoms we enjoy. At what point is it ok to take them away?

Shaun I AM YHVH DEITY THE FARTHER CIPHER 888. god is satan's immaculate deception. god stands for governing oppressive dis ease (mental illness). Deceivers like Lance Armstrong deceive. They may try to do good to disguise all the bad that they have done. Doctors have no integrity in the American Holocaust. Do we really know if Lance Armstrong really had Cancer or was they just NATAS - National Academy of Television, Arts and Science. Tail wagging the dog. Collusion is rampant in the American Holocaust.
