The lawyer in me just doesn’t get it. Last time I checked, facts and evidence were needed before finding someone guilty of something. I have yet to see a single fact in support of the contention that Armstrong cheated to win races.
Now, after more than 10 years of dealing with accusations that he doped during cycle races, Armstrong has decided not to fight the issues any longer. Frankly, I don’t blame him.
This morning, well know and respected sports broadcaster, Seth Everett and his guest, Dr. Michael J. Joyner, discussed this topic on Spreecast. Seth has an extensive amount of experience covering the issue of drugs in baseball and sports in general and Dr. Joyner is generally considered one of the world’s leading experts on human performance and exercising physiology. I was able to join them towards the end of the show and share my thoughts from both a practical and legal standpoint on why Armstrong may have simply decided to “throw in the towel” and get on with his life.
