Armstrongs lawyer on radio 5

Postby kuota » Sun Oct 14, 2012 09:26 am

Said there were 27 people who had given evidence against Armstrong and he didnt accept their testomony. He would put them on a lie detector , as in the right hands with the best equipment the truth would come out. The interviewer said if that was the case, Armstrong would take the test and pass it. Armstrongs lawyer said it might happen in the future but when pressed said he'd gotta run!!!!!!

Given the fact that Armstrong has so many contacts how do we know that the lie detector test will be accurate. Armstrong has brought himself down to such a level that nobody would believe anything he says anymore. Lance Armstrong has gone within one week from being well respected and admired throughout the world for his sporting achievements, his battle against cancer and his work with the livestrong fund to the biggest sporting cheat in the history of sport. He,s Finished.Anything he or his lawyer comes up with is only a feeble attempt at damage limitation. IMHO

Lie detectors don't work.

It was just Gary Richardson fishing for a story to get on to the 9.30 sports bulletin. He's been doing the same schtick on Sunday mornings for years. I wouldn't take it too seriously.

I still haven't really got past thinking that his lawyer is Tim Henman yet.

As it would if it was Larry in the hot seat and all his 'witch hunters' at the helm of the lie detector (assuming he were to fail it)

:D I remember him interviewing George Foreman before a televised boxing fight - it could have been Lewis vs Rahman. Anyway, he managed to spin an octagenarian Foreman 360 degrees in 30 seconds while working out where the camera was, and halfway through a response to a question. BBCs closest thing to Alan Partridge!

I'm not sure Foreman (currently 64) would appreciate that description.

You are not suggesting that Lance would somehow manipulate a test, do you?!

Perhaps if you wired it up to the mains before it was put on Lance...

There is a piece in the Grauniad today quoting this lawyer. Why it was thought apt to fill column inches with the speculations of Mr Armstrong's paid representative escapes me, he adds nothing to the debate about a former cyclist who has little or no connection with Britain. Perhaps it demonstrates that Mr A still enjoys contacts and influence in our media?

Well I don't go there (but was it Slater) since a few years ago I and many others got banned from the BBC 606 forum because I suggested (and they did too) that Lance couldn't produce the European Summer performances without drug taking.
