I always liked him, maybe it's the doughboy in me that relates to him.

"he went thru hell, came out of it, owned up to it, and moved on. he keeps wondering why others haven't."

Perhaps "others" have consciences, still feel robbed & lied to, or aren't willing to brush things under the carpet?

As for the 'owning up' part, Armstrong has yet to fully grasp the concept of 'the truth, the whole truth & nothing but the truth' . . . . should we just accept his pathetic, self-serving watered-down version for his benefit and move on?

You can if you want, but I suspect the majority of those aware, or in some way, touched by the whole sorry 'fallen-god saga' feel there is still a debt left to pay.

Armstrong, Ullrich; they're all rotten apples to me. Not quite ready to join the Apologists club run...

Phooey on the sanctimony. Those races were contested by way, way more dopers than non dopers.

I'm so tired of the "everyone was doing it excuse." I don't accept that answer from my kids, so you'll excuse me if I don't accept it from professional athletes.

That said, I think Ullrich (and Armstong) should keep their melds and whatever else....certify all past results from ~1990-2010ish and denote that period as "The Blood Doping Era."

This insistence on focusing on the past is just silly....

Recall all the medals, podiums from that era, reissue a small ribbon that says "Participant" and call it good

BUT make sure to include ALL sports, Superbowls, World Series, Olympics,World Cup, Grand Slams, etc etc.....  the religious like zeal of some cycling fans just rankles me (actually the religious like zeal for anything rankles me).

There is only one moral to this story: whether he likes it or not Ullrich continues to be tied to the hip to whatever LA is or isn't doing.

Other than that there are no moral grounds for the redistribution or taking away of medals.

"Religious zeal?" LOL.....Uh, OK.

If your standards of right and wrong vary based on the level of participation in the activity, we can agree to disagree.
