He was not the first cheat, nor will he be the last.
He did set out to destroy people in the process of his cheating and doping.

He slandered and tried to drag people through the mud and bring financial and mental ruin upon people or do you ignore that facet of Armstrongs cheating?

Have you also forgotten how he colluded with UCI and the ASO to continue his dopin and cheating?

There's a whole thread devoted to why we hate Armstrong so much. Dig it up.

And Contador didn't get to keep his Tour title. You won't find many people defending Contador in The Clinic (although there are a few banboys/girls).

Also, didn't Ferrari provided him with the best stuff, while his other clients got crap?

Armstrong is not just a cheat like the rest, he's way more than that.

A couple of scenarios on how his confession plays out:

- He posts a lame, limited confession on the Friday afternoon before super bowl sunday, and gets buried in the news.

- He goes on the Ellen show, and gives his confession, and plays the cancer and Livestrong angle, supported by lots of photos of him running and doing tris with his kids at the finish line to play the family guy angle.

- He strikes a deal with SCA and the Sunday Times to settle the lawsuits. All details of the deal remain sealed, but he is forced to give a limited confession.

- He gives a lame "I only doped once or twice but always during the off season and never during the TdF and furthermore after 2006 I was clean now can I go run the Boston marathon and get my hefty appearance fee? Please?"

The only way I will forgive the guy is if he tells all and is sincere, brings down the UCI, and agrees to honor the lifetime ban. This last point is important to me because I don't want him at any race that I do.

If the comments section of the NYT is anything to go by on public opinion, it is too late for Wonderboy, the horse has bolted on his life. It will take genuine heartfelt contrition over a long period of time to earn a small size of respect that he once had amongst the general public who know nothing of cycling.

All he can hope for now is that the name Lance Armstrong* becomes synonymous as the most famous doper in the history of sport. He is halfway there.

*I wonder would he revert to Gunderson at some stage in the future.

Well, he still has a huge fan in Phil, Sally, and this Watson fellow, so he's got that going for him

Dont forget, theres still a chance he can do appearances on a number of shows still, imagine the possibilities: Oprah(claim to be a member of her stupid "book club" or something), Maury("Lance you ARE the father of one nut little Mikey"), Springer(" I dated Lance and now I have tumors growing out of my head"), Ricki Lake(" I slept with an Olsen twin"), or Dr. Phil(" Lance Armstrong, this is your life, why are you being such a jackass Lance?") Or the Piers Morgan show("In Britain they loathe you Wonderboy, what do you say to that?")?

Totally agree. He wants to win IM more than he wanted the TdF. Before, it was all about his ego, now he wants revenge, to shove it in the face of all detractors. And he will continue to dope, it is the only way he knows. **** him is right. He has no place in sports ever again.
