I believe in Lance, he's a great role model.
xrichx saidBelieve in what? Did something happen to him?
Claystation saidI read a story on the whole thing. From what I can understand is they have some kind of samples that prove he was doping, also a bunch of his former teammates and staff saying he doped.
meh, not sure why he wouldnt prove his innocence and just put this to rest but I may be missing some other details on why he isn't fighting this or something blah blah blah
It's easy for us to say "why don't you keep fighting" but nothing they can do will change the fact that he physically won those races. Okay, so they take the "titles" away, so what? He is retiring and going back to his charity work. He's probably so sick and tired of constantly defending himself he just doesn't care anymore.
DudeInNOVA saidThey're accusing him of more than just using. They say he trafficked and pushed others to dope too. That's kinda serious.

Claystation saidOrly? I missed that. He be dealin that sticky icky
CNNThe USADA has accused Armstrong of using, possessing, trafficking and giving to others performance-enhancing drugs, as well as covering up doping violations.
I think I've seen accusations before from former teammates who say he encouraged them to dope.
Claystation saidOuch. That doesnt look good Mr Armstrong.
CNNThe USADA alleges he took steroids throughout his career, saying it has testimony from former teammates to support the charges. It has refused to reveal who provided the evidence.
I can't think of a reason why his teammates would lie. Wouldn't they stand of losing their titles too, if they were awarded them while on a team with someone accused of doping?
Claystation saidDid it say how his teammates got busted for using in the first place?
erik911sd saidI've defended him over and over again, including on this site in other threads.
I read his statement and while I understand what he's saying, it's not the act of an innocent man.
I'm not sure. A couple of his former teammates tested positive for doping later, but I don't know if those were the ones who testified against him. The committee isn't saying who gave the evidence.
Claystation saidDid they say anything about his medical staff, I remember seeing something about them saying something along the lines of Lance taking a cocktail of steroids or something.
I just kinda skimmed the story dont hit me
ESPNUSADA also said it had 10 former Armstrong teammates ready to testify against him. Other than suggesting they include Landis and Tyler Hamilton, both of whom have admitted to doping offenses, the agency has refused to say who they are or specifically what they would say.
I remember that too, but I didn't see that in the latest stories. I've just been skimming too. Here's something from an EPSN article:ESPNUSADA also said it had 10 former Armstrong teammates ready to testify against him. Other than suggesting they include Landis and Tyler Hamilton, both of whom have admitted to doping offenses, the agency has refused to say who they are or specifically what they would say.
Ten former teammates? That would have to be a helluva conspiracy to get them all to testify against him.
Claystation said10?! Two of them even admitted to doping and are ready to point the finger at Lance. I wonder what the other 8 have to say?
