Lance and Call for Confession - Will Armstrong Reveal All?
Lance Armstrong faces a call for confession from lobby group Change Cycling Now, will the disgraced cyclist finally reveal all?
Lance Armstrong was stripped of his seven Tour de France titles by the USADA, and told Oprah Winfrey in a TV interview that he had taken performance-enhancing drugs before each of his tour victories.
That's not enough according to one group.
"The thing that upset me most about Lance was not the doping. We now know how prevalent the doping was, how entrenched it has been in the culture of cycling," Jaimie Fuller, who formed the group Change Cycling Now told a conference convened by the World Sports Law Report.
"What upset me most all the other things that surrounded him, the way he abused people, the way that he just climbed all over people, the win at all costs.
"I had a conversation with him not long ago and I said to him it's going to get worse for him before its gets better. I think he's bit delusional.
"He's got to come clean, he's got to tell everything. We didn't see that on Oprah Winfrey, what we saw on Oprah Winfrey was the convenient truths. And when it was inconvenient we didn't get the truth.
"That includes not protecting other people he's still protecting. He needs to show a bit of contrition."
Meanwhile Lance is looking for a little Bill Clinton like redemption.
“Ultimately, people forgive and forget and remember the good stuff you did,” Armstrong told Texas Monthly.
“Is it hard to do? Yeah. But Clinton did it. He loves to work, he loves people, he loves to hustle.”
Armstrong continued: “He’s a hero of mine. He’s a tough guy, he’s smart, surrounded himself with good people. And 10 years later, he’s president of the world. It can be done.”
Can Armstrong make a comeback, or is his reputation too damaged?
