The Lance Armstrong Lie Cloud

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Yesterday Lance Armstrong admitted to the New Normal national confessional and conscience clearinghouse - Oprah - to what everyone had known for a long time, yet what he spent millions over the years suing others for "defaming" him for. Below is the resulting word liecloud of his interview. Spot the words "apologize" and "sorry." In other news, we look forward to Lance's rise to the ranks of primary dealer prop trader. He certainly has all the sociopathological prerequisites.

funny sport

in the last 22 years ,the only winner of the tour not to be caught doping is the most recent winner

 

and it was the most boring no action tour i have ever watched

at this junture they ought to just make doping legal in the sport so it has at least one iota of credibility

do they intend to run the blood samples of everyone who was in second place etc until they find a clean winner for all of lances tour wins?

I never liked Lance, and it was pretty obvious he was cheating.  His "improvement" was too quick -- from average rider, to winner, to winning easily.

It reminded me of a story told by a weight lifter.  He struggled for years to gain a few pounds of muscle.  Then he tried steroids and gained 30 pounds in one year.

Or the NFL.  Back in the 80s, the largest linemen were 275 pounds and they looked like fat slobs -- really 225 pounds lean.  Now they are all 300 + and low body fat.

I think all the second place finishers were previously caught doping (maybe all but on one tour win)...  So we're down to third, at best, on any of his titles.  Like I said in the other thread, doping makes it impossible to compare Lance to historical riders, but he beat his contemporaries...  not sure why this is so hard for people to accept.

The International Cycling Union's management committee said it understands that "a cloud of suspicion would remain hanging over this dark period [1998-2005] — but that while this might appear harsh for those who rode clean, they would understand there was little honor to be gained in reallocating places."

The committee also called "on Armstrong and all other affected riders to return the prize money they had received

#so the more i read , i see cycling has doping cases going back to 1886

i was trying to figure out how deep they would need to go to get the winners, and based on what i could find it would be almost impossible to find a winner for any of those races

 

most of the top cyclists have been busted at one time or another

there were perhaps AT MOST a half dozen or so clean riders in any given Tour and they were smoked out by the first mountain stages.

Their careers lasted like 2 or 3 years on average.  You CANNOT compete at a high level in professional sports without dope.  Just get over it, people.

Yes, cycling has been doped since they invented the bike.

You are silly, it's not DOPE, it's DOPING ie the removal of one's own blood, storing it, and re-injecting it at race time. It is not drugs. Obviously not even possible back when the bicycle was invented.

Cyclists have been doping since 1900, dude.  Old timers like Ancquetil and Coppi and Merckx talked openly of this.  The 84 US cycling Olympic team blood packed like Armstrong did.

(note: soccer is a good game because its cool to have a game girls and fags can play too, and dont tell me a guy rolling around on the ground waiting for a stretcher when he got kicked in the shin isnt a fucking fag. cycling is a real sport because the dudes get bandaged after severe road rash inducing falls while they are still riding up a freakin hill.)

Not at all, but each era of racing has a different set of drugs (and ancillary substances) and understanding thereof...  while some on here argue that some cyclists have access to better drugs in a particular era, I'd venture to say that the % increase in effectiveness of the drugs is probably outweighed by the margin of victory...  blood doping isn't new...  but our understanding of it always changes.  [and I don't think lance made some magical breakthroughs or had some incredible core competency of doping...  he didn't invent it...  and if his contemporaries (and their teams) were close, then they would have competed].

He didn't beat his contemporaries.  He beat their pharmacists.  Or rather, his pharmacist beat theirs. 

Your theory of comparison only works if they all get exactly the same drug, from exactly the same batch from exactly the same factory, with exactly the same transport time, delivered to exactly the same spot on an arm or wherever.

This guy beat no one.  His druggie won those races.

in 2006 there was a stage where the top two guys in one mountain got removed for doping. michael rasmussen got dq'd and landis won the stage after rasmussens dq only to later be dq'd himself. landis's druggist was only able to win after rasmussens druggist was caught, by your analysis

There are lots of ways to dope, not just increasing the amount of blood.

There are many fluorocarbon emulsions that can be made that hold dissolved O2.  These are good at increasing the aerobic respiration of your body's cells.

The oil phase (perfluorooctyl bromide for one) readily dissolves and holds a lot of gas, making your effective aerobic respiration much greater.

Same thing they do for premature infants who have poorly developed lungs.

You are fucking idiot like the rest of the morons on the internet who are spreading lies about Sandy Hook.  It DID happen and they are real children and they are dead.  The man in the video who was criticized for smiling had been asked to speak to one media outlet.  He showed up for the interview and it was a press conference atmosphere.  The smile plastered on his face was an attempt to hold his shit together and not burst into tears.  The only reason he spoke with the press was because his family had just moved from out of state and he wanted to communicate with friends and relatives far away.  He was told that he would be speaking to one reporter.  The media was a constant presence and aggravation for 2 weeks after the incident.  They were rude and intrusive and locked the town down by theri presence.

Again for all you fucking morons out there, it did happen, there was only one shooter, and the children were real people.  There are no Sandy Hook "actors".  Go back to searching for Big Foot.

You stupid fucking delusional addled-brain piece of shit.  The world without the internet was a better place when mutants like you would just walk the town twitching and barking at the moon and letting normal folks cut you a wide swathe.  Now the net has become your collective therapy where you have found and linked up with the other examples of god's quality control problems, and where you can share your delusions and do reacharounds on those similarly afflicted.  Oh, you probably call it research when you surf to places where your "journalistic" heroes reach deep into their arses to pull out their "facts".  And you buy them all while having the audacity to call others "sheeple"?

Inconsistencies?  Use whatever chunks of that fucking brain of yours that might function in this time and place, and consider the situation.  A small town where the worst any cop had probably ever seen was a drunk husband smacking around his wife, or a ten year old scoffing a pie from a church bake sale.  Not a one of them had ever heard a shot fired in anger.  Suddenly their whole world gets turned upside down, and they see unimagineable horror on a scale that rivals anything this side of Hell.  They lack the skill and the emotional hardness to deal with such slaughter, and while they are trying to catch their breath, truckloads of reporters show up peppering them with questions and demanding details nobody yet knows.  The reporters themselves were those closest to the scene, and were, initially, unlikely to be the highest paid "talent" of their respective networks.  So there are inexperienced reporters pushing shocked and equally inexperienced police to "solve" something where the screams have barely died down, and you are surprised that there might be some "inconsistencies"?  You're a fucking moron who clearly has no life experience whatsoever.

As for all the "conspiracy" bullshit, why don't one of you fucking clowns go to that town and tell it to one of the cops who saw six year olds with multiple headshots?  You won't because you are, besides being delusional shitheads, goddamn fucking piece of shit cowards.  Fuck yourselves.

And save the bullshit about "disappearing videos", grassy knoll shooters (who apparently either made sure security cameras got them or waited around until the media could capture them in the act), or bullshit about planted guns.

There are fucking crazy people in this world and sometimes they do horrible things.  You should know crazy very well.  It's your species.  And look at the plus arrows.  You proud of this, Tyler?

Athletes are today expected to perform beyond human means. 

Look at the speed and endurance in the NFL, for example.  The human body is not designed to give and take that kind of abuse over time, however the league can't turn down the money they get for showing the spectacle of it all.  Hence, an illicit agreement between labor & ownership regarding the use of drugs.  Some get thrown under the bus, but by and large, if both player and owner get paid, everyone plays nice and looks the other way.

Junior Seau, RIP.  Nobody dished hits like him, or stalked, hunted, and swarmed around the LOS and secondary like he did.  Guess what?  Evidently, no one is supposed to.  If it looks superhuman, it is.

the tour is way more than being a sports fan, it is a national event . It is more than that, like a carnaval in your sole, an experinece of a lifetime(only carnaval in Olinda would top it), maybe tou should plan a trip and experience it, it passes thru Corsica this year... meet you there.. if wiffy is hot we can do a little switch,,, mine is a bomshell.

they have great food, wine and party instead of shitty hotdogs and a walk back to the parking lot.

Psychopaths (4 of every 100) have no remorse, no feelings, can't give shit about other people's fate, but can say nice words, how much it "hurts" them, how much they "love" something or somebody. All your politicians and many so called stars are soulless psychopaths. They can recognise each other without words in a crowd. They think they are a superior species, and we are just dumb talking animals to be lied to, robbed and sent into insane wars to cull the population.

I agree, makes no difference to me what these people do. But in the minds of many people, Lance Armstrong was an inspiration, a pinnacle of hope and strength, a modern-day hero that overcame health issues and personal challenges.

In the end it's about looking for heroes in our society, those infallable brave souls that conquer all and serve as mentors in a troubled world. When these heroes fall on their swords, it crushes our hopes and dreams that the impossible isn't possible and what was reality is now just a warped and twisted illusion. So we begin looking for new heroes, those that demonstrate courage, persistence, excellence...and find there are none. All our dreams are shattered, until another one finally surfaces, undoubtedly in a global leadership position, that has endless and unhampered power, that can bury and hide into eternity their dirty laundry. HE is the ONE they say, and behold, he is POTUS.

Calculate the total number of Jews as a percentage of the globalpopulation, then conduct a study of the cast of all the most destructive wealth destroying recent events and its players (Greenspan, Wolfowitz, Bob Diamond, Hank Paulson, Rubin, Glass Steagall destroyer, Bernanke, Blankvein etc..) and actions and the percentage of jews in I-Banks.

Not to mention the number of shady presidential handlers.

It's simple.  Those who have failed miserably at life need someone to blame.  They also feel most comfortable sharing their projection with like-minded losers.  Zerohedge became the place where they all meet up and try to feel better about themselves.  Apparently it's kind of a public service for the site.  Of course that sort of group therapy solves nothing, and they get all hot and bothered when reminded of that.  They remain failures, and will always be failures, but the continual reacharounds from their fellow losers allow them to forget for a moment their own miserable existence.

Hope that helps.

I honestly don't care whether or not Lance was/is a doper.  Governing committees should just let that stuff go - in the real world the coyote outsmarts the roadrunner every time.

Assuming taking "performance enhancing drugs" is voluntary/initiated by the athletes, I think sports would be a helluva lot more interesting if athletes were allowed to act as human guinea pigs.  An athletes' supplements would be listed right underneath his or her statistics. 

As for Lance, I respect him as an athlete.  He's easily among the top five most accomplished athletes in our generation.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to get my second cup of work enhancing substance.  Cheers.

What Lance Armstrong did was illegal, but he needed to cheat to overcome natural deficiencies. Sounds like that Corzine guy to me, or almost any politician I can think of. At least what Armstrong, Bonds, Clemens, Sosa et al did does not affect me personally. What the illegal-drug-using president does has the capability of affecting me personally.

The Armstrong story is another red herring, inflated to divert the miniscule attention spans of the sheep away from matters that are really important. Think bread and circuses.

Besides, it's simply not fair that some athletes are more talented or capable than the rest of us. We need the government to do something to make us all equally capable of earning megabucks as an athlete. Fairness demands it!
