Lance Armstrong finally came clean on Thursday night in an interview with Oprah Winfrey, admitting to using performance-enhancing drugs during his run as a seven-time Tour de France champion. Armstrong said he deserved the scrutiny he's been getting as a result of his use of PEDs, including the stripping of his titles and his lifetime ban from cycling. Cycling authorities don't seem to be buying his remorse, but how do you feel about it?

Has your opinion changed?

''I went and looked up the definition of cheat, and the definition is to gain an advantage on a rival or foe. I didn't view it that way. I viewed it as a level playing field.'' -- Lance Armstrong


Do you believe him?

''This story was so perfect for so long. It's this myth, this perfect story, and it wasn't true. I viewed this situation as one big lie that I repeated a lot of times, and as you said, it wasn't as if I just said no and I moved off it.'' -- Lance Armstrong


Will he admit it under oath?

''... if he is sincere in his desire to correct his past mistakes, he will testify under oath about the full extent of his doping activities.''
-- USADA chief Travis Tygart


Should he have named names?

''There are people in this story, they're good people and we've all made mistakes -- they're not monsters, not toxic and not evil ... ''
-- Lance Armstrong


How did Oprah do?

''Were you a bully?'''
''Was it a big deal to you? Did it feel wrong?''
''Did you feel in any way that you were cheating?''
--Oprah Winfrey
