Lance Armstrong

Reportedly APOLOGIZES

to Livestrong Staff

breaking news

0114_lance_armstrong_tmzLance Armstrong reportedly issued an emotional apology to several staff members at his Livestrong organization in Texas  ... amidst rumors that he's finally going to admit that he cheated.

According to the AP, Armstrong met with staffers right before he headed to an interview with Oprah Winfrey ... an interview in which he's rumored to finally admit he doped during his cycling career.

During the meeting with Livestrong staff, Armstrong reportedly choked up ... and said "I'm sorry" for letting everyone down.

Armstrong's apology was vague at best -- at no point did he ever admit to using any performance enhancing drugs ... or cheating in any way.

It's the first time the disgraced cyclist has acted remorseful since the cheating saga began several years ago.

After the apology, Armstrong met with advisers and his legal team before going face-to-face with Oprah at a nearby hotel.

He's practicing his act on the poor Livestrong employees who were duped by a selfish A hole.

Will he also be apologizing to the people he called liars when they accused him of doping? He needs to just go away.

Wow ...    

I would believe his remorse, if he had come clean sooner. As in way before he was caught. Long before people gave testimony and details of the complex methods used in his/their doping. He simply can't deny it anymore, plain and simple.

So he apologized for letting them down, but admitted to nothing? And I think if he had to meet with advisers and his legal team before meeting with Oprah, he has no intention of being completely open and honest. He just wants to say enough so he can compete again. So nothing has changed--he's all about Lance.

This douche bag literally STOLE millions of dollars of fake winnings. NO ONE with a shred of decency should ever want to see his stupid, lying face again. Give it up, Armstrong. You are a crook, thief and a liar.

I'm not buying one thing this guy says.


He isn't sorry about a damn thing.


He's just sorry he got caught.


If he's really sorry, then he should return the money he made.


Nothing else will convince me.

Sorry for being caught.


If he were really sorry he'd give back all the money he made from cheating over the years.
