Personally, I feel bad for the guy. Seems to be the longest witch-hunt...

I don't think the cycling agencies are going to strip his titles away, they seem to be upset at the USADA's position of thinking they are the ones with the authority to do that.
What do you think? Witch hunt or cheater?
Well, it hasn't been proven, you would think there should be some proof other than what other people have said.
That's the thing... he was tested hundreds of times, both the scheduled tests for all competitors, and extra random, no-warning tests by several agencies. He never refused to volunteer for a random test.
This is our tax dollars at work. Gotta love it.
I'm giving him credit for refusing to keep fighting. He just got done with a two year investigation... I've dealt with minor legal things before, and it's a pain in the you-know. I can understand him wanting to focus on what matters.
Wow - I can't believe all the testing he already submitted to and still is being investigated?
I haven't followed this closely. Didn't some test along the line turn up positive to get all this started?
I thought they are stripping him of 7 titles (?)
Not to be flip, but does this mean the end ot LiveStrong, too?
The guy beat cancer and has done a lot of good in the world.
They are recommending it. The USADA doesn't have the authority to take away TdF titles, that's under the Intenational Cycling Association or whatever it's called.
I don't think it will have too much of an impact on it... he's just no longer going to continue defending himself against these accusations, so he can focus on LiveStrong.
I don't care about anything else anyone has to say about Lance Armstrong: The USADA never proved that he took performance enhancing drugs. He never tested positive for such.
This was a bizarre and illegal persecution that should have been investigated by the Justice Department a long time ago.
Everyone is entitled to a proper trial and examination of the evidence when their lives, ability to make an income, and reputations are at stake.
The fraud, waste and abuse laws should also be used to investigate the USADA personnel who perpetrated this mess and wasted a good chunk of their budget.

Is Lance Armstrong guilty or innocent of doping? Do you think that he should have all titles and possibly his Olympic medal removed? How about that fact that he has 'given up the fight' because he feels it is a witch hunt he will continue to lose, yet he insists on his innocence and...

Recently several of Lance Armstrong's teammates have come out and admitted that they not only took performance enhancing drugs..but they saw and KNOW that Lance took them as well. Although there's no positive tests to support this, nor any evidence outside of circumstanstial ones to prove...

Anyone notice the similarity between Lance Armstrong and Monsanto?Apparently, if you get successful and rich and powerful enough, no-one can hold you accountable for stepping all over other people.

Is Lance Armstrong sorry for doping, or is he just a Cycle-Path (psychopath) and pathological liar?Armstrong ruined many lives and attacked many people for accusations of blood doping and performance enhancement drugs. What does he expect to gain from his confession, and does it change anyone's...
