Opened My Eyes, Now I Can See!
on 9 December 2012
I'll make no bones about it I was an apologist for Lance Armstrong, and strongly denied these allegations against him, baseing my support for LA on the fact he'd never tested positive.
Until that is I downloaded and read a few pages of the USADA report, you don't need to read it all, I still maintained Lance was innocent of all charges and David Walsh was a vindictive crackpot along the lines of Robin Gardiner, a compelling story needs compelling evidence, Walsh produces it Gardiner alas does not!
It's a sordid and dirty story from which lance Armstrong only has one avenue left open to him now, come clean Lance you can no longer deny the facts, plus he comes across as a downright nasty piece of work if you cross him in any way.
Good on David Walsh et al who stuck it out knowing the truth would come out someday! Lance's apologists now rank alongside the Holocaust deniers in their blinkered views to my mind.
For further reading I'm trying to read a poorly translated copy of LA Confidentiel, the book that really rattled LA and his cohorts, not been printed here in the UK under threat of Lance sueing, whether or not that threat still holds good as the Sunday Times are looking to claim the damages paid to Lance back!
