He would first have to be convicted in a court of law, not a court of Internet forums.

If Armstrong falls, professional cycling falls....(not that that would bother me one way or another) Sponsors would be running for the doors.

Landis for sure.

Lance is dead meat when the cancer community find out he was hogging EPO they could have used to save lives, to win bicycle races.......

everybody who can add 1+1 knows what's been going on in pro sports. i can't imagine that pharmstrong outcome will change anything. the centre of pro cycling, i.e. major races and sponsors are still europe based and apart from the members of the yellow-wristband sect, the majoritiy of the public (at least my impression) has no doubt that liestrong was as doped as all his contenders, so confessing or conviction of LA should not be a major thing. just my 2 cents.

personally, i'd prefer to be floyd. 2 balls. clear conscious.

on the other hand, had i lance's money, i called a press conference today and would tell the guys:

"everybody with a brain knows what's been going on in professional sports and cycling. yeah, i did what all the others did. so while i did not cheat any of my contenders, i nevertheless apologise for my lies, for incorrectly deceiving public and sponsors. everybody makes mistakes. i'm not different. the fact that i was never caught shows, that something must be changed in the system. i hope my confession might turn around things in today's cycling and give a chance to young riders to fight for victory in a clean field. floyd, respect for the guts to come out with the truth."

Lance stopped using EPO well before the Great EPO Shortage when all those deprived cancer patients perished for lack of meds.

Floyd v Lance

A popularity contest for ex pro racers? Well, OK. . .

Floyd milked "I didn't do it" for all it was worth. Now he's milking "I did it for all it was worth." Floyd is unregenerate: He said that he'd dope all over again--just that he wouldn't lie about it after he got caught. That makes no sense to me in any principled way. Doping at that level involves a long pattern of lying--not just the last big lie after you get caught. Floyd is all relativistic about his lies. His goal in life now is apparently to cop a big legal score against his former associates. Floyd's ostracised from the pro cycling community, he's lost his best friend, and his wife divorced him. I don't think I would want to be Floyd.

Lance is a rich famous jerk. He may or may not suffer a publicity setback in the future. There is zero indication that Lance will ever be convicted of anything, and even less indication he will do time. I'd like Lance's money, and I'd take his legal and publicity chances, but there is no way I could stand his personality. Opening that Pandora's Box would be a mistake.

I'd rather be neither.

Oh dear. Cycling will not fall if Armstrong falls, even McQuaid has seen that.

One has all the money in the world, a foundation, fame, 7 Tour titles. However won't admit all of this came by deception and its about to be indicted for a Federal trial which will be very expensive and probably result in a prison term.

The other is broke, owes money to lawyers, will be probably be charged with perjury, is considered untrustworthy but has confessed all his sins and is free as a bird.

Who would you rather be right now? Floyd or Lance.
I would prefer to be Tyler.

Grammar and spelling issues, lack of capitalization and poor sentence structure prevented me from understanding this post but I gather generally that you are quite bitter about something.

I would rather be Lance, bling, style,game. Floyd, oh not so much.

I do not like Flandis for blackmailing and not answering his hacking warrant.

As far as honesty, Lance is more honest than Floyd. Not saying much, but oh well.

+ Lance has a good future and family. Again Floyd not so much.

Uh...exactly how many PROS have come out and DENIED what Floyd said and called him liar? (Besides Lance)

Sorry. No way Floyd.
I couldn't sleep anymore if I had betrayed others and myself.
This might be connected to my childhood, where sneaks were unpopular.
The sandbox-omerta :D

Always Lance, but one day would be enough. His lifesytle would be to stressful for me. First thing I would do, is to send one of these nice bikes to flicker, RaceRadio, Polish, and perhaps thehog.

And here is another huge difference - Floyd has to ask flicker, RaceRadio, Polish and thehog for a bike.

After that I would send a christmas card to Simeoni, Floyd, Lemond, Bassons and of course Bordry.

Floyd wins

1: Floyd has 100% credibility now, as opposed to 12 months ago
2: Did Floyd attempt to wreck Greg's business? nope
3: Can Floyd look Betsy or Greg in the eye? yep
4: Floyd helped Novitzky - lots of cred here
5: Did Floyd harras another rider during any tour to uphold the omerta? nope


This is a slam dunk, Floyd wins easily

The OP has not commented yet. Your turn hog

cheers

I'd rather be Lance, but in his shoes I'd also be smart enough to take up residence in a country that didn't have an extradition treaty with the USA and then pull a Riis in another few years.

I don't think Mr. Armstrong's ego will allow him to do that, however.

edit: Lance has a good future and family. Ha! Which one? He's not as bad a family man as Charlie Sheen, maybe.
