the problem has not even been adequately defined.

you cant solve the problem, before it is defined.

If you don't like cycling, believe me I am OK with it, I suffer no delusions, if it could have 1/4th the fans and media exposure of tennis it would be a gigantic coup here in the US, but to say it is a cesspool and by implication imply that football, baseball, etc are not is just as ignorant as the kool aid drinking lance fan mountainmen.

They don't need to falsify a hypocritical reason to base their dislike of cycling such as PED's. They aren't giving cycling a chance. Fine. I get that. I am not giving hockey a chance. It's my choice, there's only so much time in the day. I don't run around screaming that I went to a fight and a hockey game broke out to expose my ignorance.

Wonder how much Oprah had to pay for the interview?
Or would that be a "donation" to Livestrong?

Even if she did pay for the interview, I don't really care. At least the questions that should be asked, will be asked and the truth will emerge.

There's that word again. "Truth".

Whatever that means

Exactly, Lance has to tell the truth. Oprah can not make Lance tell the truth, but she can ask questions that draw out the truth.

It was interesting the way she described the 'confession'..
she and team were "surprised, mesmerized, riveted".."not what she expected"

Also, the contrition thing...she hesitated when asked..then said she was "satisfied" with the answers...
and we can "judge for ourselves"...

a lot of room there for what really was said...

well now she is just tantalizing anyone who is watching her interviews to try and bait them to try and figure out if her channel is on their cable system and where the heck it is.

Lance likes to try and hide behind the nfl, the Novitzky case got dropped right before the superbowl, what a coincidence that this interview is occurring while sportsfans are riveted to the nfl playoffs, sadly for him, this is a monster news story that was the lead on entertainment shows like entertainment tonight, etc. The nfl is way too small a fig leaf to try and hide something like this behind. He chose to live above and outside the sporting world and now he pays the price for that. A victim of his own excess.

I watched some entertainment show (sorry, I can't tell them apart) trot out a doctor who said it is likely that his drug use contributed to his testicular cancer. WOW!!!
