    Armstrong: I don't deserve life ban - Others - More Sports - The Independent


    Can't believe it is even being suggested he be allowed to compete again. It would be endorsing cheating - all you need to do is say you're sorry and you're back. He says he thought he was just levelling the playing field no he wasn't he was cheating and deprived better cyclists of a chance to win. If you're caught cheating then it's out for life otherwise the whole thing is farcical.

    What about the people he sued for defamation and all those who played a part in his cheating. His sense of right and wrong is a bit off to put it mildly. It's OK if you don't get caught and if you do just apologise and it's all OK. wasn't my fault you didnt catch me at it.

    Too true - he's admitted to lying and cheating throughout his career and then says he deserves to be allowed back into the sport! Why Sir, you are a liar and a cheat and the sport has no place for you.

    He's become an extremely wealthy man as a result of his lying and cheating. As a sponsor I would be demanding my money back. He owes too many people and not just money

    I knew he had an ulterior motive for confessing. He should be charged with fraud and anything else his sponsors can think of.

    I am impressed by how long he tried to bluff his way through.

    That's a good point, though, what if a sponsor gains any of it's assets through lying and cheating?

    I am fairly disgusted with the guy.
    He should just go away, now.
