The Head of USADA tells CBS that Lance Armstrong lied to Oprah, and gives him a date by which he has to tell the truth!

Disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong didn't tell Oprah Winfrey the full truth about his doping and lied several times on significant issues, says the official who has been investigating Armstrong for years. One of the lies was telling Winfrey he did not dope for his 2009-2010 return to the Tour -- a claim blood tests solidly refute says U.S. Anti-Doping Agency's CEO Travis Tygart. In a letter to Armstrong, Tygart says he offered him a deadline of February 6 to cooperate fully and truthfully in exchange for a possible lessening of his lifetime ban from sports. Tygart, whose damning report last fall led to the imposition of the ban and the stripping of Armstrong's seven Tour de France wins, speaks to Scott Pelley in a 60 Minutes interview to be broadcast Sunday, Jan. 27 at 7 p.m. ET/PT.

Of course he lied. The whole Oprah interview was just a publicity piece to paint him in a positive light. Everything about it was choreography, including the leaks to the press. If he was serious about coming clean then he would have testified in a court / tribunal and supplied the names of everybody who assisted him and who he assisted.

They better stop testing his temper, or Lance Armstrong might explode like a meth lab on two wheels.

As House would say everybody lies. And a lying narcissist isn't going to suddenly stop lying, it makes sense that he'd still lie in a way that makes him look contrite whilst saving some face. Hopefully nobody buys it.

So what? So the guy did drugs. He is not the first nor the last athlete that is going to do it. They need to let it go and leave the man alone.

Exactly.

And just because other people do it does not give you any moral or ethical reason to also do it.

I don't understand how he was able to compete during that 2009-2010 Tour if he had issues with the blood tests. Why wasn't he disqualified then?

I think I'm going to compete in the Tour de France on a motorcycle just to level the playing field with all these doped up athletes.

That's entirely missing the point! He lied again about doping, which only goes to show his entire public rehabilitation is a sham. It's a choreographed PR circus designed to paint him as a fallen figure who has learned the error of his ways when in actual fact he's cynically exploiting the public for his own personal gain. He has tarnished the entire sport and tainted the achievements of those who have never doped.

Wow! Are you being serious?! :| Drug testing organisations are supposed to expose cheaters to maintain the integrity of the sport. People need to stop putting their faith in people who don't deserve it. It's sick that anyone would defend him and place the blame on the organisations that are doing their jobs.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Absolutely ludicrous statement.

What about all the other riders who competed perfectly fairly and were conned out of a win by his lying, cheating ass?

Also, how the hell is he a hero?! Cos he recovered from cancer? Thousands of people a year do the same, have you ever heard of them?

Ha, good luck! If these "athletes" are willing to go to such lengths to dope then who's to say they won't come at you in other ways, like pushing you off your motorcycle or having a car conveniently crash into you? :shifty:

I think all of this is a load of horse manure. Someone has something over his head and gave him an option:

A. Tell the world your a liar and a cheater

or

B. We tell the world this other stuff that we have proof of

He should tell his lies in Prison. All of that money he got was under false pretenses. He is a jerk.
