I loved the part where he suggested the UCI donation[s] came post-retirement.

Sorry... Betsy covered a LOT of territory.
Hopefully, all the transcripts or unlocked replays will be out there soon.
Way too much to recap. But she was brilliant.

Should have watched CNN instead of Oprah.

Closing comments

"Lance is reported to be worth 100 million, he will have a lot less when this is all over".




Maybe all those big breaks were for commentary on other channels and on the internet.

Betsy saved my night. But it's awful to see her in pain.

Why even watch it if nothing except suicide on air want satisfy you guys?

Weirdest moment: Not going into the hospital room thing. No clue why.

Clean in 09-10. Not buying that one for sure. But then like everybody else I basically only believe him when it fits what my expectations are....

TdS.... donation. Was Oprah even listening? He said something like "there where some shady things, but the donation wasn't one. Ok, then ask about some of the shady stuff. But no, she went on with another stupid question.

Half the questions seemed pointless.

Well he admitted a lot more than I thought he would--but absolutely no contrition. Accepted some responsibility, but sidestepped much more.

I can't believe Oprah missed the 'did you give yourself The Disease' since he admitted to using massive drugs prior to the cancer.

For many what he said will be enough to write him off; others will still idolize him.

He seemed to be very degrading when the women in the story Emma and Betsy were discussed...man hates women I think.

Next show on....recapping the interview.

Possible insight to Lance's thinking and choice of words:

Race Radio ‏@TheRaceRadio
Reason he cannot confirm hospital room? Because people lied for him about it....under oath

I mean, I watched because I was morbidly curious what the guy would say. It was satisfying to see him have to be in a position where he had to at least acknowledge some truth. It's been a looooong time coming. I think it's not outrageous to be frustrated that he can't/won't tell the whole truth. 'Suicide on the air' is a bit hyperbolic, come on.

re: the hospital room thing - he can't admit publicly because of not only his perjury, but other people's.

Talking with people today about the interview and we just agreeded people can behave like animals.Most of us are hypocrites, but some don't realized it or only when we get busted.

Do you think Armstrong fears the UCI, Ferarri and his friends?
