    Thought about bringing this back last night. Guess he did do it, I did not see that coming.

    Didn't watch the interview only because I can't stand Oprah.

    nope, nothing I'm going to hear thats going to change my opinion about him.

    everyone doped, he was just the best and he thought he could get away with it if he kept his mouth shut. he did it better and more effectively than anyone else.

    Yeah I see what your saying, still a pretty good watch. It did not change my opinion of him either, but I have thought for years that he cheated.

    However, I will still keep my signed photo of him at the Tour hanging above my fireplace. He did so much for the cycling scene, good and bad, but watching him in the tour is one reason I enjoy the sport.

    I won't say I hate the guy, but I am disappointed that it's true. Really thought he just had it in him, sad that he lowered himself to that. I guess I do think slightly less of him.

    I couldn't give less **** about what this guy (who survived ball cancer) did to win a bicycle race. The dude did more for cancer research than most and LiveStrong will continue without him raising even more money for it, that's why I don't care if he doped and lied about it.

    You know what, they all do it, he set a high standard AND lied about it.

    That is the biggest issue, would have been better if he was honest about it from the get go.

    I did notice from the bit that I watched of the interview, once he admitted doping, he seemed to be back to avoiding answering questions directly, and IMO, still lying about stuff.

    the biggest issue was that he was a massive jerk while lying about it.
