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.

Man if your conscience doesn't kick in after 7 wins you have a problem.
Once you tell the first lie you have to keep lying.
Sponsors are asking for their money back and his lying disgraced the American team even though everyone in that sport was dirty too.

Lance Armstrong is a lying, scheming, devious, cheating slimeball and he KNOWS IT. This guy should be banned from all types of professional cycling and all pro sports for that matter.

Hopefully, we won't even have to have to see him on TV anymore because he would destroy the ratings for any TV show or sports project he got involved in. He should be banned from all charity stuff too while they are at it. Who knows, he might try to rip the charity off somehow.

Bye, bye Lance ..... U R DONE. Go sit on your porch in Texas and drink beer the rest of your life or something. I hope all the women in your life CHEAT on you and leave you before long.

I bet Sheryl Crow would be too concerned about hurting her own career to have anything to do with him again. He's an embarrassment to her I'm sure.

He's a first class piece of crap. Forget the drugs....what about all the bullying and getting people fired and black listed from getting other jobs. He threatened a lot of people, even tried to pay them off so he could continue his phony life/persona. I believe he's a narcissist....the only person he cares about is himself and will do anything, say anything and trample over anyone to get what they want with little regard for others and what might happen to them. HE'S A PHONY hopefully he'll just go away....but I doubt he will. I also hope people aren't stupid enough to believe anything that comes out of his mouth. I found this comment by someone else that says it all good job

He would still be lying to everyone if he had not had his hand forced by being barred from competative sports Boo freakin hoo, big baby. You should have taken accountability in the beginning, in fact, you should have NEVER taken to drugs and got started in the first place. was losing a nut worth it?
