(Newser) – Lance Armstrong will make his expected doping admission on Monday during an interview with Oprah Winfrey, reports USA Today. An anonymous insider says Armstrong will not discuss specific events but will confess that he took illegal drugs to boost his performance throughout his cycling career, despite years of denials and attacks on his accusers. The interview gets taped Monday and airs Thursday on the Oprah Winfrey Network. The move raises a host of potential legal and financial issues for Armstrong, which might explain why he'll go light on the details.

Dumb. He shouldn't admit to anything. Never tested positive and all of the "proof" is hearsay. There are so many athletes that use the stuff and never get caught or admit it. Barry Bonds for one example. They either need to come up with better testing or quit accusing people on hearsay no matter how true it is.

What happened to all the sycophants defending this fraud? There used to be a lot more comments when an Armstrong story was posted.

You don't have to admit it, Lance. Everyone already knows. You don't wind up being the most dominant athlete in a sport where everyone is cheating without being a cheater yourself. Cheater. Now shove all that self-righteous bs up your butt.
