He owes an apology to a few more people than that.cineteq said:Condensed interview from 4 Corners
He still owes an apology to the USADA riders whom he called liars.
Yes, fully agree. Just trying to provide sound-bites that Joe Six Pack can comprehend.cineteq said:+ UCI complicity + Intimidation +++++
For Lance it was winning at all costs.

He is now transitioning to the worst of the fanboy apoligisms is the whole level playing field nonsense: everyone else was doping, too.
This is the worst apologist line as even a cursory understanding underscores the extreme nature of the competitive disadvantage. It remains amazing that this apoligism has any legs left.
The most obvious rebuttal:
Did everyone else pay their doping doctor $1m?
Isn't that like having an Indy 500 pit crew for your commuter car?
How could anyone else compete?

Clive James-esquethere goes lance, his tight buttox like two epeleptic turtles in a lycra casing , Paul, did i say that aloud? #newliggettisms
Don't they have investments in the same companies too? Phil's ridden the Armstrong gravy train for years, all this is a silly attempt to cast doubt and maybe make a headline or two for himself.... time fo teh old folks home, mate...131313 said:This should surprise no one. This old fool has been complicit from the very beginning. He's a liar and a fraud, just like his hero, so this is just par for the course.
Rides on the Livestrong jet, lots of free meals and other occasional "benefits", and Phil is a friend for life. At the end of the day, these guys are just as responsible for the problems of doping than Lance Armstrong himself. Only with willing and complicit journalists could the fraud have continued for this long.
you have to love how lance's main weapon of his comeback, which he hyped to the moon, is now biting him in the *** so hard. life is truly beautifulChristchurch said:Apologies if this has been posted before. I might not have seen it through my tears of laughter.

Liggett has been a constant supporter of Armstrong through the rider’s career and through numerous doping allegations. He admitted to not having read the report, with his information having been received second-hand through news sources. He told Cyclingnews: “It is a witch hunt, lets face it, because they only want Lance. Call it what you like, the fact is they only have one ambition and that’s to get Lance.”
http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/despite-usadas-evidence-liggett-remains-armstrongs-supporterLiggett, who has commented on the Tour de France for a number of television networks in a career that has spanned 40 years and 35 Tours, added that he was still a supporter of Armstrong, despite the fact the revelations around Armstrong's doping had made him ‘look like a fool’.
“If he’s been taking drugs then of course it’s right [to sanction] but they still lack the absolute proof as far as I’m aware. I still am a supporter of Armstrong. Whatever way we look at it Lance has been good for the sport. No one can condone, if it’s finally proved, that he’s ridden his whole career on drugs. I had an email from an eminent scientist from the US yesterday. An SMS actually. It said if Lance Armstrong had taken the drugs outlined by USADA he’d have been dead ten years ago. He’s an eminent scientist and a very intelligent man. I don’t know his name, the SMS came from a secondary person.”

Suddenly he wants Verbruggen out of the UCI.
