It's very hard to believe that he wasn't -- all of this I'm not saying he was.
Because I really don't want to be sued by anybody but -- -- to believe I just as a normal person reading the sales almost impossible to Italy and I'm from Austin on the University of Texas longhorn fan so I'm already biased against Notre Dame because we've not been ten times.
Since 1913 we've only beaten them twice.
But they think this goes to -- you know celebrity obsession we have just a culture of celebrity where he's so talented on the field.
And perhaps in his mind that wasn't even enough his talent wasn't enough.
Maybe he's looking next Democrat that CN and house she was able to.
You know take a little store while her sex tape but she took a situation that gave her more profile and turned it into something that was very profitable.
I've actually had a situation happen to me that was similar.
Where we had someone that in an organization I was working with you tell us she had brain cancer.
We raised money for her the whole thing turned out to be a frying -- but along the way.
There were red flags right so where -- the red flags last relationship we live in the day and sky and that I was he's Skyping right why why would only be -- why didn't why did.
Notre Dame organization -- swallow this hook line and -- it Kevin your thoughts.
I think Rudy was off sides.
But no I I'm with -- -- on this because.
I also -- of Texas native and in I don't really have a love for Irish football I was very happy that the other quarterback's girlfriend got a lot of attention the night of the BCS championship.
But what you what you're dealing with here is what -- -- just identified and yes write it down folks -- and Kevin agreed on stuff this is a really weird and error that we've entered into.
And I think I have a hard time understanding this.
This -- a big man on campus he's he's the starting middle linebacker that's basically the quarterback of the defense.
For one of the most history.
Football programs in the country that goes undefeated and into the national championship in a revival year for the program and after many many years -- haven't really rough times.
Why do you need to invent a story like this yeah don't you have girls lining up outside your your dorm door -- -- that's what I don't understand is.
In terms of what I think he did or didn't or not I think the facts will be uncovered and those world -- that they will point to what the truth this.
But in terms of the Y.
It's harder for me to see a motivation for him than it is for somebody else on the outside may be right to try to do something against him I think someone.
Coaxing him is more motivated -- he coaxing everybody else.
Right and and you know the one thing I kind hope -- this.
Is that if he was -- a -- he's learned his lesson it's not like Lance Armstrong and I did not do I think that's a safe assumption.
Yeah I he did not defraud a bunch of people for his own sports success I hope he runs out because he's a great football player Kobe goes -- a great success.
And I in the NFL but lends a lesson that you you know just let your achievements speak for themselves.
But you know in the air when we have the likes them.
Lance Armstrong the woods -- in the history of sports I'm doing what I did good guy he's not a nice -- Armstrong I he's a disgusting I'm from Austin I have a number of close friends who have worked with him for many years in and that overall consensus is he isn't he isn't evil person he's not nice to people.
And -- I think we've seen that.
I never believed TV you know I want to open up what bothers me that it Sargent Doug I want to move on to something that you guys disagree about it a moment but while we're all agreeing on everything what really what really bothers me about -- -- -- Is that he.
Has ruined us -- anybody who has taken pop into cycling.
For the last a decade.
Anybody for probably the next decade who wins anything in cycling is going to be questions over the he directly -- lives but he's also ruined and the entire -- -- -- he was he was kind of noted as the guy that brought cycling back to -- for at least for Americans and because of the again the inspirational story in overcoming the odds all the same stuff that's kind of in the the other story.
But here to know that it was build basically on -- -- I think really does damage to the future and not to mention.
We the taxpayers.
We we ponied up forty million dollars to the Postal Service for this guy I want my money back yet.
Yeah a lot of people on the money back all right that's enough agreement as I said if I'm.
