For Lance to be "sorry for doping," in and of itself....would be to say he "regrets" the fame, fortune, power and notoriety he achieved, throughout his career. Since it is widely believed that his doping, in fact, was instrumental in creating this god-like Olympic Figure/TOUR WINNER.....it follows that "doping" skyrocketed him to his Highest Point......I seriously doubt he is SORRY for any of this.
He may very well, now, be sorry for having been exposed, accused, questioned and pointed at.....which lead directly to his subsequent, repeated denials and adamant insistence to the contrary....and further, his alleged threats and bullying, involving fellow-athletes.
Can we all sing a verse of "Oh,What a Tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive?"......
Any LIE/Deceit...multiplies, divides and spreads....gets bigger and more complex, until finally ...the weaver of the web is helplessly entwined....and at the mercy of his accusers. Sad.
I don't believe Lance is a sociopath, nor a pathological liar. I believe he is an imperfect and mortal human being, who fell fiercely into the trance and trap..of believing he transcended his humanness and mortality....becoming instead, the god-like creature he envisioned, in the glare of his medals, the mountains of his money, the adoring cheers of his fans, the offers of more fame and fortune.....
Lance is surely not the first to do this, nor will he be the last.
The "Super Human," is an illusion to the world and a Delusion to himself. The one true finale to this, ever, can only be an eventual return, devastatingly or gracefully....to one's humanness. What you reap after this, again depends on the mercy of those who once adored you...and the forgiveness from those you abused. It's all, really this simple. I am 100% certain, what will be "Lance's hugest regret in life" is this last move he made, to come out publicly and admit and apologize. At this moment, he literally HATES himself.
