10. Oh, I know.

But when he tweeted this pic a few months ago, it seemed like he was going to stick with the strategy of defiant denial.

3. He belongs in jail. Total fraud. Not whining/crying on Oprah to attempt to save his reputation

 

and make more money

The way he treated Sheryl Crow, showed what type of asshole he was.

Propping himself up with his charity was a good shield to make people think he was something he wasn't.

4. He's just in full PR/image rehab mode now

No one is buying one word of it after how much hell he brought on people trying to keep his secrets safe...

I hope he knows the immense soul-killing disappointment that so many millions of sports fans and Americans; who once defended him until their voices ran hoarse, feel...

7. He spoke under oath claiming the opposite, correct?

I think that's called perjury.

14. It is called perjury but he can't be charged.

In testified in 2005 and is now beyond the statute of limitations for the case. That is why he waited so long.

17. The sad thing is....

How many people in this country and around the world who had cancer and looked to him as an inspiration.

Good luck with that mea culpa at the "Church of Oprah", Lance...

It is a total shame how many people, especially kids, looked up to him

It is a shame they cannot bring perjury charges against him.

19. Nothing to lose now by saying it

He got caught after he already had earned a ton of money, even with lost endorsements, he's still quite secure. When one has a lot of money, reputation sometimes means less.
