    Lance Armstrong?


    Wasn’t he last year’s Sports Jerk?

    @Rod Gonzalez

    Apparently you haven’t been regular about reading Tank… For the strips 40th anniversary Bill Hinds decided to have a “Biggest Sports Jerk of the Last 40 Years”, which combined all those years, including last year.

    Man. All Armstrong did was dope up to win some competitions. He’s a bigger jerk than serial rapist Mike Tyson? Bigger than Dennis Rodman, who’s cozying up to a murderous dictator?

    Lance Armstrong left a bad taste in the mouth because of the malfeasance of officials. The idea that someone could magically pass more than 900 drug tests but still be doping made no sense when the scandal broke and makes no sense now. Chemistry doesn’t lie and it would be impossible to bribe 900+ officials because some of them are honest, even among the French. Forcing someone to admit what they didn’t do in order to avoid suits and prosecution was a new low for our government.

    Lance Armstrong: The guy who cheated during a time when everybody else was also cheating. (See: Parity). And still kicked their asses 7 times in a row, and came up with a podium finish for an eighth.

    Sorry, I can’t get riled on this one. NOBODY was riding honestly back then (at least nobody who was finishing the Tour in double figures). And yeah, cycling looked bad. Forget that, it looked terrible.

    It’s easier just to blame Lance.

    Lance Armstrong. Seven times Tour de France winner. And there’s no way you can change that.

    I’m with you on this one Syke. Lance Armstrong did amazing things drugs or no. Beating cancer does amazing things to a person. Look at Lance Mackey, won four Iditarods in a row and four Yukon Quests in a row. It was supposed to be impossible to win the Quest and the Iditarod in the same year and he did it three times.

    Lance did win 7 times, but he insisted on a stack of bibles that he was clean. Time and again.

    Still think Rodman, Rose, and Armstrong are pikers next to Tonya Harding.

    wasn’t the doping that won him the award, it’s the systematic actions during and afterwards. He attacked, sued, got fired and destroyed anyone and everyone who dared said he cheated.
    And he was unapologetic about it until forced to be – and even then, it was half-hearted.

    Lance over OJ or Tyson or Bonds?
    Well, time does blur memory AND people do get a chance to rehab their image through contrition (Tyson).
    Lance was more aggressive to destroy anyone who dared to say he wasn’t perfect than the others and only admitted when blocked from any form of competition.
    But is that more than OJ murder? hard because he’s far from the only sports figure in the last 40 years to kill someone – why him vs the others?. And Tyson’s in the same boat with rape and abuse.

    Rose bet on baseball. Armstrong bet no one would be able to pin doping scandals on him. Rodman… well, was just Rodman.

    I’d still give it to Rose, though.

    I thought there was a ‘no murderers’ policy for the Sports Jerk, so OJ wouldn’t be eligible.
