USA Today - Declaring “enough is enough,” Lance Armstrong says he will not fight charges brought by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, which said it will ban Armstrong from competition for life and strip him of the seven Tour de France titles that turned him into an American hero. Lance Armstrong decided on Thursday not to go to arbitration to dispute charges brought by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, which alleges the cyclist for years engaged in a blood-doping conspiracy.
Armstrong said his decision did not mean he would accept USADA’s sanctions. His lawyers threatened a lawsuit if USADA proceeded, arguing the agency must first resolve a dispute with the International Cycling Union over whether the case should be pursued. “It is a sad day for all of us who love sport and our athletic heroes,” USADA CEO Travis Tygart said. “This is a heartbreaking example of how the win-at-all-costs culture of sport, if left unchecked, will overtake fair, safe and honest competition.” In walking away, the 40-year-old Armstrong cited a familiar defense: he has never tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs. He said his decision is not an admission of guilt, but a choice to devote more time to his family and his Livestrong foundation for cancer survivors. Armstrong overcame advanced cancer just a few years before his string of Tour de France victories.
So this settles it. Settles the argument of who is the biggest scam, the biggest fraud, the biggest scumbag in the history of American sports. And the answer is now and will forever be Lance Armstrong. Hands down. For years he has hid behind his self righteouness and his holier than thou attitude and now it couldn’t be more clear that everything he was so cocky about, he lied about. I mean can you imagine fighting your ass off for 7 Tour De France titles? Can you imagine fucking pedaling all over God’s green Earth as hard as you can to win SEVEN titles in the hardest bike race in the planet then just giving it all up? Yes I know nobody cares about the Tour De France and nobody cares about bike racing blah blah. That’s not the point. The point is that it’s a hard ass sport and he dominated in it. Seriously imagine that you won 7 crazy hard bike races against the best cyclists on the planet and then just let somebody strip you of all the wins because “enough is enough.” Because you’re tired of fighting it and just don’t feel like it anymore. What a crock of fucking shit. Bottom line is if you’re innocent you don’t stop fighting. You stand on the rooftops and scream that you’re innocent because you won fair and square. Anybody who challenges you you punch in the face because you’re so pissed off they would dare to challenge your records. But no not Lance. Lance just gives it all up because he doesn’t want to argue. Umm ok bro. Be more obvious that you doped and took steroids. Seriously try and be more obvious. You can’t. You just rolled over and gave up every win you ever had because you’re “tired.” Fuck off loser. Go shoot some more steroids up your dick and act like you’re better than everyone naturally even though everybody knows now 100% that you’re a fraud.
