Just makes me say yuk to these kind of people. Still there are questions??? Will he be convicted? Will he go to jail for cheating? His net worth is $125M. He will lose future earnings of $200M but he may not serve any jail time. Why not? The FBI guy who hunted down all the loose ends is to be commended for doggedly tracking every person who knew about it and making the truth come out.

I think I saw this confession stuff before. I'm sure it will look about the same as the McGwire stuff did. But Oprah will get huge ratings.

I don't believe that he even had cancer.

90 minutes with Oprah. Oh, what drama.

It would be hilarious if he made Oprah ride a bike uphill during the interview. I think the questions out of her would be short and few in number.

No interest except for fascination with a confession on what anyone with common sense knew. I do hope the foundation goes on. It has done great work.

Who cares, no reason for this guy to go to jail, how is he a risk to society and worth tax payer money? You cheat in sports, you get banned. You get caught, fess up. If his sponsors want to sue him they can go for it but it's just sports people.

" Will he go to jail for cheating? His net worth is $125M. He will lose future earnings of $200M but he may not serve any jail time. Why not?"----------Better question is, why would Armstrong go to jail? He cheated at a sport, but that is only against the rules, not against the law. No other sports leagues have required monetary reparations for PED use, so why would Armstrong be held to a different standard. Clearly, what Armstrong did was wrong, but he survived a 50% survival rate diagnosis, and started an organization that has raised half a billion dollars for cancer patients. PED users like Alex Rodriguez, Manny Ramirez, Sammy Sosa, Mark McGuire, haven't done a tenth of the good Armstrong's done in his life, so I think the condemnations are a bit out of line.
