I usually pretend to be flying a military helicopter, doesn't really matter who I am - as long as the sound effects of the engine and launching rockets are somewhat believable!

When you have to start compromising yourself and your morals for the people around you, it’s probably time to change the people around you. Do what makes you happy, and do it a little better every day… and don’t forget to breath!

This guy has lost all respect and shouldn't even show his face in public.

He is a disgrace to sports.

Given his propensity to lie, I think we need proof he actually had cancer.

Cmon Lance - show us the nut! :dyinglaughing:

The tragedy is the end result of what he had accomplished. He brought cycling to the forefront like never before and now with this fiasco he has brought an end to some races. Sponsors have backed out and the momentum cycling had has dwindled.

It is a shame that cycling now has such a bad name now. I'm sure it weighs heavily on the 2 or 3 fans of the sport.

He wasn't the best .his team was weak.It's all the rest that are still doping riding and winning that are the best.Lance is the guy they nailed to a cross. I'm starting to think the way he went whole hog was to mock the sport ,Even though most were with him,knowing the sport was dirty and he was looking real dirty ,they all waited to bail after he was caught.He didn't damage a sport .he exposed a twisted broken sport.

Let's be honest, every single sport is filled with dope when you get to professional level.

The only dope now is the one that's getting sued and losing everything.

Curling? :dyinglaughing:
Last year, Jim Armstrong, a member of the Canadian Curling Hall of Fame and a gold medalist as skip (you should know this by now, but that means he’s the best and he goes last) of Canada’s 2010 Paralympic team, was suspended for 18 months after failing a drug test in December 2011. The drug: tamoxifen, which is used to treat breast cancer but also used as an estrogen-blocker that can counteract the hormone-surges brought on by steroid use.
Yep even curling.
