Public Reacts to Armstrong Confession

Lance Armstrong

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — Armstrong’s confession had local sports bars tuned into Oprah’s Network, a site rarely seen.

Local sports fans say they’re disappointed with Lance Armstrong.

“It does set a bad example.  It’s wrong just like in any sport, but I also see that he’s done a lot of good like he’s given a lot of money to cancer,” says Rob Allen from Holyoke.

Brian Ellis who lives in New Hampshire told us, “I can’t help but wonder if there is some type of agenda that’s going to help him long term.  He’s pretty much done a 180 and my respect for him is out the window.”

Most people say they weren’t surprised by the confession.
