OWN Oprah and Lance-spoilers (Read 328 times)


Feeling the growl again

    For frig's sake.  Previously claimed he'd never tested positive...now admits he doped...samples never tested later tested "flaming" positive..but still tris to ride the fence of never testing positive vs admitting he did dope....says he gave to UCI despite not being a fan because "they asked me to"...

     

    ...admits cortisone test back-dated...

        He is a control freak obviously.  Nice job Oprah.

              I just got home and found out I have the OWN network. I wish I didn't care about this.

                To be fair for those not watching the interview, he's describing his flawed character when he 'justifies' himself.

                    Mountain time.  I have an hour to wait.

                    It can be streamed on oprah.com at 9ET/PT - even in Alaska. I've got slow DSL which means slow wifi, so could catch some of the questions, then have it cut out for the answers. I had just gotten in from my snowshoe run (yea - fresh snow) and driveway shoveling so thought I'd tune in for awhile.

                    In it for the long run..

                      Lance is a flawed, ruthless person.  Those of us who knew him when he was young have known this a long time.  He would do whatever it took.   I am sick about all this, but I still support Lance in whatever he does going forward.  I'm sorry for the people he steamrolled.  I am not surprised.  I get it.  I guess I'm a bad person, but I DO get it.   I admire Lance for many reasons and I'm sorry he did some of the things he did. I believe he is, too.

                        I'm not watching the interview either. But I'd like to know anything that's "new". Wouldn't he just say it's all about money and fame.

                          Why do you have to mention you're a "bad" person?

                           

                          Steve Job was relentless and not a likable person. But he achieved what he did not by cheating. Flawed but still respectable.

                            I believe he's sorry - that he got busted.

                            Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

                              For some reason I don't have the outrage that everyone else seems to have.  I don't hate him.  I'm sad but not disgusted.  I suspect maybe I'm flawed, too.   I don't really care If I am.  I've made it this far.

                               

                              Steve Jobs would have cheated in the Tour de France.

                                I don't have the outrage, either. Maybe I would if I had been one of the persons directly affected.

                                 

                                The part I don't get is that while watching CNN and looking at comments on cycling sites is that some people keep saying he's not sorry or remorseful.  My response is:  Who cares?  I just want the facts about what he did. I don't really care if he's sorry about it.
