Lance's time is running out

In response to many of the articles surrounding Lance Armstrong’s “confession” to the queen of talk, Oprah Winfrey – its suffice to say he is a cheat. A compulsive liar. He isn’t remorseful nor sorry. In fact he is just sorry because he was caught. That’s all it is.  I mean how can you make a mistake 7 times! It all boils down to greed. Sounds like psychotic behaviour to me.

I see there are 3 main issues here: 1. Lies and cheating  2.drug use  3. Legalities.

What do we do with the lies and cheating. Nothing. It’s in the past. You can’t recover that. Yes he lied blatantly and tried so hard to cover his tracks in this regard. He is only sorry now that he is caught. He needs to drag the other dopers down with him. All for one, one for all, I say. They doped together and lied together, now they can come clean together.

Yes his drug abuse allowed for him to cheat and win his way through 7 of the most coveted titles in the cycling fraternity. What do we do now about the drug abuse? We stop it. We need to install much stricter laws in sport so we don’t have history repeating itself. There are many abusers in may sport who have gotten away with a tap on knuckles and a whisper in the ear. That HAS to stop. This heinous crime has led to him (Lance) to cheat a worthy and innocent winner out of millions in prize money and sponsors.

In terms of the legalities, dopers should serve some type of jail time like the regular meth doper on the street. Many other athletes were jailed when their crimes were uncovered. What is so great about Lance that he doesn’t have to serve jail time? Being a 7 times TDF champ makes you great but one is never above the law. The thief is caught, money returned to the owner and he goes before court where evidence is presented before the judge and jury. If guilty, he serves time. That’s the simplest way of looking at a criminal case process. He may even be able to help us round up the other dopers and flush them out of the sport for good.

Let’s get the World Anti-Doping Agency to deal with this Lance Armstrong before he finds time to escape this, as it is he’s managed to buy time. But the sand in his hourglass is wasting away… After this, let’s forget. Forgive, maybe not. Forget, yes please. Let’s not make him anymore famous or infamous as he already is.
