Armstrong in Discussion to Tell Details to Doping Officials

Source: NYT

Less than one month after confessing to using performance-enhancing drugs throughout his career, Lance Armstrong is in talks with the United States Anti-Doping Agency to possibly disclose who helped him dope and how he covered up his doping for nearly a decade.

Armstrong, who has been barred from Olympic sports for life, wants to reveal those details to have his competition ban reduced to eight years, said several people briefed on the negotiations. Those people did not want their names used because the discussions were continuing.

The antidoping agency had told Armstrong that it would make his lifetime ban permanent if he did not come forward by Wednesday with substantial information about his doping program. But it said Wednesday that it had given him a two-week extension.

“We have been in communication with Mr. Armstrong and his representatives, and we understand that he does want to be part of the solution and assist in the effort to clean up the sport of cycling,” Travis Tygart, chief executive of the agency, said in a statement. He added that the extra time would give the agency and Armstrong a chance to “work on the details” of their possible discussions about Armstrong’s doping past.

2. He's a cheat. Toss him in the clink and make him give back the cash to the Post Office that

sponsored his prevaricating ass.

They can use it to help with their many debts.

5. Oh no, no.....he tried to give back a tiny percentage of what they gave him, and he wanted to act

like they were square. They gave him over thirty million, he wanted to give them back five million and call it even.


I think they should sue his ass and take every cent he has. He can go work in a bike shop, selling and repairing bikes--he knows a little about that...after he gets outta jail. He's a bum.

7. Fuck him, he is a pompous ass

I know him.

I wish I could go into detail, but in the brief time that I have been here I do not wish to expose myself.

8. He certainly comes across that way to me.

Entitled and arrogant--and that's when he's trying to be contrite.

I think he didn't do a very good job with his life. He chased after all the wrong things, and it looks like he's still doing that.

4. This is a distraction. We desperately need to fix our broken election system before 2014. nm

6. Fuck that shit-heel

Lance, Levi, George and the rest of them.

They juiced a boring sport (Lance, winning all of those TDFs) and romanticized it.

Our little town spent more than $200K to establish bike lanes that nobody uses.

I say we let Lance auction whatever is left of his testicles to pay for them.
