Lance Armstrong has expressed his frustration about Alex Rodriguez, who supposedly cheated on Jennifer Lopez, and wonders why everyone doesn’t hate him.
He said, “A-Rod didn’t raise half a billion dollars and try to save people’s lives,” — followed by a sarcastic remark on the Today show, “Look, it’s great when somebody hits home runs and maybe does an event here and there for Boys & Girls Club,”.
His frustration comes from the fact Alex has been accepted back into society and his sport of baseball, whereas Lance has been completely disowned by the cycling community, and many fans he had no longer support him.
In July during a conversation on Freakonomics Radio he said, “The one key thing is that Alex Rodriguez was allowed to come back and play. And, Alex Rodriguez was part of a team sport. And thirdly, Alex Rodriguez never stood for anything else other than baseball.
So, I was never allowed to come back to my sport at any level, and most people viewed it as an individual sport. And, I stood for much more than just cycling.”
What are your thoughts? Has Lance redeemed himself enough to be welcomed back into the cycling community?
