Is anyone following the Lance doping saga? What do you think about Lance Armstrong's confession and his "deeply flawed" statement? 

I personally think it is shameful that he lied, cheated, tormented people, and got away with it for so long and then suddenly blabs his heart out.What is it that he is really expecting-kwim?

I think it's awful.  I heard something on TV that perhaps he waited the amount of time he did in order to wait out a statute of limitations (I don't know if that's true but if it is, this is even more disgusting).  

It's a shame because the Livestrong foundation does really wonderful things for cancer and it's also become a decent go-to site for health and fitness questions.  

He doesn't get any points for coming clean now.  His credibility was shot when the doping claims came up and he denied them vehemently.  That would have been a more honorable time to come out with this.

I'm glad the truth finally came out; but I was appalled at how blasé he came across in Oprah’s interview. I mean really... he didn’t just deny for years, he verbally and legally attacked people and tried to ruin lives! And he supposedly counted a lot of those people as friends... and a simple apology is supposed to charm them (and us) now? I don’t think so.
