Lance Armstrong's confession seems to be just another calculation

There are 87 comments on the The Washington Post story from Jan 16, 2013, titled Lance Armstrong's confession seems to be just another calculation. In it, The Washington Post reports that:

Sadly, even Lance Armstrong's contrition is contrived, it seems. His mea culpa to Oprah Winfrey - always guaranteed to bump a miscreant's Q rating - is not actually about apologizing to his fans and coming clean, so to speak, about his use of performance-enhancing drugs.

Ok, little man, what law did Lance Armstrong break that would warrant criminal tial, much less jail time?
All Lance did was what everybody else in international cycling does, even you must admit that the Tour D France has not had near as much press since Lance left.
Actually who wants to watch a group of men riding bikes?
Perjury and fraud.

Are you claiming that the US is so corrupt that those aren't crimes?

That last comment tells us all we need to know about how informed YOUR opinion is.

Does fraud/grand larceny and perjury warrant jail time for the common citizen? Well, we are ALL supposed to be treated the same, right WTH, so that would mean that if that is the case, then Lance Armstrong should find himself behind bars, just like Martha Stewart did.

And Martha Stewart isn't as bad a criminal as Armstrong, agreed? Yet she did time...so tell us again, why shouldn't Lance do time for his crimes?

Tigershark, you hit the nail on the head with the Falcons problems. Of course Ryan's fumble was blatantly the game loser, still, if the defense had held that line and not let the 9ers just waltz into the end zone several times in the last half, could have ended much differently. As for the SEattle game and the missed field goal, who's to say without the whistle being blown and disrupting his concentration, how that first kick would have turned out. As for the interception in the niner game, it didn't lead to pts, the fumble did though.
Seattle plays dirty, and they tend to act like hooligans after a play, and I have little respect for that. I agree, RG3 is going to be an awesome force to be dealt with, and I am looking forward to the Redskins games next year.
And as for the 'professor'(LAMO) forget about him..I have, LOL
Oh yeah...my mistake...the game was quite a blur to me, because I didn't get to watch the whole game. I saw the game just after the 49ers got their first score. You may call me the Falcons' jinx. The Falcons' defence could not be completely blamed for that game. Very little blame should be placed on the Falcons' defence. They stopped Akers from successfully kicking a 38 yard field goal. They forced a fumble and recovered Michael Crabtree's fumble. They kept the game close. The only thing that they did that they couldn't completely be faulted for, is that they committed a player to Colin Kaepernick on rushing plays, which allowed the running back (Frank Gore or number 23 of the Niners) to only have to pass one defender, in order to find daylight, as the Niners' front line had the shift on Atlanta's defence, and Atlanta tried to play it safe by committing a man to Kaepernick, so that's where Atlanta's defence got burned. Had Atlanta gambled on defence, the result may have still been the same, though it could have been better or worse. WHO KNOWS!

All I know is that without Matt Ryan's follies in that game, Atlanta could have likely forced overtime, and probably won that game. It was close. Seattle, Atlanta and San Francisco all played the same game, and where the defence was concerned, it was a matter of gambling, and hoping that they get the turnover or the stop that they needed. Seattle couldn't get the critical stop that they needed when they finally took the lead. San Francisco did. This is why San Francisco is in the Super Bowl. Can't wait to watch the game, as for the first time in a long time, I actually like both teams in the Super Bowl!

I know the Professor has gotten under your skin, Jen, but maybe you both can put your differences aside, and watch the Pro Bowl and the Super Bowl together...you both may have a ton of fun doing so...wink wink! LOL!

What's the difference between a triathlon bike and a woman?

On a woman, the pussee is on the bottom!

What's the difference between a tri"athlete" and a tiger?

One is the biggest pussee in the world, the other is orange and black!

Lol and the tiger is probably a better bike handler.
