Colm.Murphy said:ESPN sportscenter is hyping "What Floyd Landis is now saying about Lance Armstrong and drug use...."
It is like the WSJ article never happened and it is all new again. Wow, this is already resonating and the airing has not popped yet.
Colm.Murphy said:Interesting decision by Landis to speak up again. I think it is good that he kept racing, and is becoming a bit more vocal in his previous admissions. If there is any way to address the calls about his credibility or the validity of his claims and motivations, it is to show your face and address these issues in the open.
If he can clearly address what are probably (at least what can be gleaned from the preview and excerpts) a very sharp set of questions, it will go a long way toward establishing this is not bitter, jealous, axe-grinding (as the LA corner claims). It also will present a fresh set of publicly showcased issues for "a certain man from Texas".
90-minutes of interview? How long does Nightline run? It is not a show I usually watch as US politics are generally what I thought it focused on and that business bores me to tears. If the Landis interview runs 90-minutes, heavens knows what will be dredged through.
I hope Lance has a TUE for a few dozen Xanax.
Awaiting more Atty Herman spin in 3-2-1....
Comeback 2011 said:I hope Landis makes clear again that no one ever asked him to dope. He was he that went to Bruyneel and said that he wanted to get on a programme. His decision and his decision alone.
Umm, yeah, I am pretty sure that's exactly what he's going to say. We all know that no one doped on USPS except Landis.
Lajeretta4Ever said:Nightline? How many people watch that? Come on, 11:30PM EST, up against Lenno and Letterman. How come ABC did not include this interview during their Primetime or 20/20 shows?

LOL!Nightline: You realize you have serious credibility issues?
Landis: I think that'd be an understatement.
Nightline: You're an admitted liar and cheat.
Landis: What -- what is a person supposed to do when they make the wrong decision? I mean, are you committed to that path for good? Are you -- once you tell a lie, are you committed to tell that lie forever?
Nightline: Well, Lance says you have no credibility.
Landis: You just said I have no credibility.
