David Walsh is the sports writer for the Sunday Times has followed the Lance Armstrong doping story:
Lest anyone forget, he did this interview because his reputation/brand was in the gutter. Only time will tell how much it helps.
When he said he was behaving like a jerk during those years, I thought 'Lance, I could have told you that back then.'
Lance Armstrong cannot expect to be redeemed after his brief TV confession. Names must be named.
Tyler Hamilton, a former team-mate of Lance Armstrong who implicated him in the doping scandal, has told ITV News, "I'm proud of him".
The self-flagellation makes for gripping television but it does not really amount to much in the long run.
