He’d make a great pro wrestling heel…

“I know the truth. The truth isn’t what was out there. The truth isn’t what I said and now it’s gone - this story was so perfect for so long … I mean it’s just this mythic perfect story, and it wasn’t true.” - Lance Armstrong

Says the arrogant dickhead that lied repeatedly both in arbitration and in lawsuits he brought against his early accusers and who was then awarded money because of his lies. Who also threatened to ruin the careers of his own teammates with his “media influence” if they tried to reveal the truth about him. Who actively helped to sell the story of his “incredible comeback” as a cancer survivor* (the “mythic perfect story”) and who then ruthlessly used the public sympathy and support he had garnered to defame anyone that questioned his lies.

Personally I’m glad that SCA is suing him, I hope they win, and that more of his victims then follow with lawsuits of their own. I have no more sympathy for Mr. Armstrong, hopefully this all will end in bankruptcy and even more humiliation for him, because he deserves at least that much punishment. I really hate having been taken in and used as just another one of his gullible rubes, so yeah, I am perhaps feeling a little vindictive towards him currently.

Bastard…

*(Testicular cancer that was caught extremely early due to his training regimen and constant medical examinations. He had one testicle removed followed by a very (very) short course of chemo-therapy to attempt to discourage the cancer from metastasizing elsewhere. But the story was played up in the news as if he was on deaths door every second of his “ordeal.”)

This is the only part of your comment that I can argue with. He had lesions on his brain and tumors in his lungs. He was given small odds of surviving. If he lied about that, his doctors would have come out with the truth at the time. Their reputations were on the line.

“Lesions” is pretty broad though, they certainly were not metastasized testicular cancer or he would be in a grave already barring a near miraculous spontaneous remission. Can you link me to anything that ever said that biopsies or other testing showed that these “lesions” were actually cancerous, because I have to doubt that they had any demonstrable connection.
