Fixed.

Lance competed on a level palying field and finished 5th in a swimming race at 12 years of age. I think we can savely say he had no potential ever without dope!

No sympathy. He's alive and Pantani is dead. Nothing will bring back Pantani, Jimenez or any of the others who lost far more than their dignity and money as a result of the doping environment Armstrong created and maintained.

I dont want an insincere apology on Oprah.

We know Armstrong. That is not what he does.

This would be just more gauze to fold over the eyes of the rubes who bought all those wristbands. If you apply some rigour and assess it, what good comes out of him appealing to sympathy, and doing a Martha Stewart and prostrating himself before Oprah and soccer moms. Prostate himself might be more appropriate.

Of course, not any apology would do. I reserve the right to judge whether I find it convincing.

Chances of an Armstrong apology being convincing are currently zilch.

currently zilch? With the qualifier convincing, do you think placing it in time scale, makes if a possibility. I have already written this off. And him off. I would more respect if he is authentic to who he is, and does not change a millimetre on his seat post
