Mixed reactions to possible Lance Armstrong confession

According to the article, Armstrong will admit to using banned drugs and blood transfusions during his career in exchange for a reduction to his lifetime ban. In August, the US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) banned him for life and stripped him of all of his results, including seven Tour de France victories.
