    Lance Armstrong gives up fight

    Says he will stop fighting US Anti doping agency. I wonder what if he will have to give up his 7 titles

    Re: Lance Armstrong gives up fight

    Why not take a lie detector test on live tv and just get it done?

    Re: Lance Armstrong gives up fight

    I don't think the problem is him fighting them. Just the other way around. I think he doesn't care anymore since his tests have said otherwise.

    His titles are stripped, and he's banned for life.

    Re: Lance Armstrong gives up fight

    If the guy cheated, he did it better than anyone else, because he was tested plenty of times, and they never found anything. So, it comes down to this person or that person saw him do something, and it will be their word against his. Lance has made a lot of enemies in the cycling world over the years, so there will be people out to get him.

    With all of the things that are wrong with this world and this country, I would think that the money they are throwing away on this witch hunt could be used for better purposes. Basically, another way to waste government money.....

    The guy has been tested hundreds of times and passed every single one.

    AP: Agency stripping Armstrong of Tour de France titles

    U.S. Anti-Doping Agency chief executive Travis Tygart told The Associated Press that the agency will ban Lance Armstrong from cycling for life and strip him of his seven Tour de France titles for doping.
    Never failed a test and yet it's all gone. What a waste of time and resources.

    Lance Armstrong: Enough is enough, won't fight doping charges

    Armstrong, 40, said his decision did not mean he would accept USADA's sanctions. His lawyers threatened a lawsuit if USADA punishes Armstrong, arguing that the agency must first resolve a dispute with the International Cycling Union over whether a case against Armstrong should be pursued against based on the evidence.
    In walking away, 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.

    A cancer survivor that cheats (allegedly) is still a cheat (allegedly).

    This was not an admission of guilt, this was a "I'm not fighting them anymore." Them being an organization that has no jurisdiction, authority, or real power. USADA has been ordered by official international cycling bodies that they do not have the authority to do anything to Lance, yet they continue their witch hunt.

    I have no idea whether Lance really is a cheat or not. But Lance has never tested positive and USADA has never brought forward evidence to counter that.

    Re: Lance Armstrong gives up fight

    Definitely seems a bit off to declare guilt on someone who has passed every test.
