Fire Phil Liggett

Because the Festina Scandal was 14 years ago

Wellllllll…what have we here? Phil Liggett interviewed by Aussie TV for their investigative piece on Armstrong’s downfall.

Phil seems ready to concede obvious, but can’t quite get there without the “everyone else did it” fallacy. For any first-timers out there:

  1. "Everyone else" did not do it.
  2. The fact that many others did it doesn’t excuse Armstrong.
  3. The fact that many others did it does not mean there was a level playing field.

I will say it’s nice to see the rather somber note Phil finishes on. I wonder if Armstrong sees it that way. I’m guessing not.
