    Lance Classstrong

    Lance Armstrong ‏@lancearmstrong 7h
    Heard the press room at the #Giro "cheered" when Wiggins crashed on a wet descent today. If true, that is completely f'd.
    I don't like Wiggins, but pleasure in a crash is pretty f'd indeed.

    Wouldn't 90% of people here cheer if Lance crashed?

    I kind of like the fact that Lance spoke up. Since he has no sponsors, is hated, and has nothing to lose, I sorta like his commentary on cycling.
    I want rustlers, cutthroats, murderers, bounty hunters, desperados, mugs, pugs, thugs, nitwits, halfwits, dimwits, vipers, snipers, con-men, Indian agents, Mexican bandits, muggers, buggerers, bushwhackers, hornswogglers, horse thieves, bull-dykes, train robbers, bank robbers, ass-kickers, sh**-kickers, and Methodists!

    Pretty much how I'm seeing that too. Not so much of the evasive "hey I did this event/fundraiser" he was doing a while ago or anything to save face, just commentary.

    I think it's too soon with his mess, but I wouldn't mind him doing commentary live. I mean regardless of what he's done, he's been around.

    Didn't like his crash in his last Tour at all. Crashing isn't fun or funny.

    Even if I didn't like LA, I would not wish actual physical harm on him.

    I think we all know that we are one moment's inattention from a gravity check. Especially as it could be some other guy's inattention. We all fall, sooner or later. Usually hurts.

    Makes it hard to find funny in someone else's fall.

    Not an unusual tactic for those in disgrace to rail against the press that outted them - just Lance being Lance - and the usual suspects jumping aboard his BS Bus.

    Some people never learn.

    I am suspicious of the claim that a roomful of people cheered a crash.

    From the books that have been written, I would suspect 90% of his former teammates might cheer if he crashed...

    It's outragous to claim that Lance is "Classtrong" - you know what would be classy? If he broke the Omerta - outted his partners-in-crime and then shut his mouth - and his Twitter account.

    No. Maybe 90% of the doping forum regulars.
