Default 'The Armstrong Lie' - High-Def Digest Review

Kevin has reviewed 'The Armstrong Lie.' This documentary covers the smaller details of how this longstanding lie was able to go on for so long. With good picture and sound, and some interesting extras, this Blu-ray is definitely recommended.

Aww, I thought this was going to be one of those movies about how we didn't really go into space.

Though this sounds interesting.

Does anyone really give a shit? In this day and age it's practically a forgone conclusion that high level athletes dope to stay competitive. I don't know why we blame them. Professional racers build cars to win races with so many mods that they aren't designed to be driven more than 1/2 mile before blowing up.

If some guy wants to shrink his nuts to the size of split peas to be 1/10th of a second faster than other racers, that his business. For people to hold this guy up as an example or some sort of ideal to strive for, you got what you deserved. Doping is the norm. If anything, they could do separate racers for dopers and non dopers. Course the non dopers will start doping almost immediately. It's all very entertaining, at least for those of us who laugh at competitive people.

I give a sh*t.

Rules are rules. Doping hurts the honest athlete. The good guy loses. That's
bullsh*t to lose to an opponent who dopes or lose your spot on the team to a
teammate who cheats.

Plissken99, whatever occupation you may have, I'm pretty sure it'll suck for
you if a coworker cheated and got that promotion you wanted. Or a competitor
cheated and stole a contract or customer of yours.

Is sport really any different than business? Competition exists in sport and in
life.

And there in lies the problem. American football and sports in general is a better example. When athletes are paid tens of missions of dollars, corruption will ensue. All I'm really saying is that I find it hilarious that anyone is surprised, let alone outraged when it comes to light.
