I guess Lance has taken his ball and gone home.

This is exactly what he wants. For him, this is a huge FU to the USADA. He has his millions, he still has reputation, and his 7 yellow jerseys. Within the cycling industry, he was a polarizing figure. You either loved him or hated him. There was no middle ground. I'm pretty sure he doesn't care either way. If this was closer to him wining his 7th tour, it would be a huge deal and a lot more damaging. Now? It's way too late. Even people in the cycling industry don't care about it.

Fateshands, many in the cycling business do care about it because we've still got the UCI playing favorites, allowing certain cheats to get away with it, but selectively coming down hard on others. the Armstrong affair has seen some of the sports biggest sponsors exit... even as recent as the weekend. Any notion that it has not been damaging isnt quite on the mark.

This is just the beginning for Mr. Armstrong. He's lost all of his endorsement deals. His charity is trying to put daylight between him and the organization. USA Cycling has taken his name off of their youth series. The staff of the Bontrager Livestrong pro team has been told not to wear any Livestrong clothing in public. He'll be in court for years, fighting with people and organizations like SCA Promotions (who paid him $7 million in bonuses for winning multiple Tours de France). He did not learn the Nixon Lesson, that the coverup is worse than the crime, and he'll pay a heavy price for his corruption.
