The Armstrong Lie

‘The Armstrong Lie’ just debuted at the Toronto Film Festival.

Apparently the original movie, about his come back, has been scrapped in favor of a tell all documentary.

Finally a movie that will prove Lance's innocence.

Because you'll open any thread, read any article and watch any movie that has anything to do with Lance Armstrong?

Well I do not care so much about the film, although I will probably see it, but I have been curious as to what people are thinking now that the hysteria has passed. As for me, I don't really care that he doped. If I was a fan of his, his doping would not bother me due to the prevailing attitudes during that era. I was a fan of many of the racers who doped during that era. What bothered me was how he went to the nth degree to defend himself, ruining careers and destroying lives in the process. That, to me, spoke volumes of the type of man he is. Doping was what it was, and I hope those days are behind us.

I like Lance less for being a giant jock ******bag than for doping.
