Something DOES seem a little shady about this!
Apparently the USADA has given five former teammates reduced suspensions after admitting to doping in return for testifying against Lance Armstrong!
Why WOULDN'T they just say whatever they wanted to hear??
That's exactly how Lance feels, too:
"So let me get this straight … come in and tell them exactly what they wanted to hear and you get complete immunity AND anonymity? I never got that offer. This isn't about Tygart wanting to clean up cycling — rather it's just a plain ol' selective prosecution that reeks of vendetta."
Those spilling the beans on Lance are, allegedly, Jonathan Vaughters, George Hincapie, Levi Leipheimer, David Zabriskie and Christian Vande Velde.
If this is true, well, shame on Lance.
But if it isn't — this whole witch hunt is just deplorable. The lies of many would be way worse than the lies of one.
Still, it sucks either way.
If Lance gets stripped of his titles, at least he can open up a dance studio or something and call it Dance Armstrong.
