Bloody hell, Lou Vincent. That's not how it is supposed to go.
I was taken in context? I am sorry I offended everyone? I have not been misquoted?
You are supposed hire a public relations outfit (he probably did that one), spread the blame, optical illusions, corrupt cops, vindicated when others are also caught, my mother did it, the supplements did it, everyone does it, fall guy, scape goat, victim of rank injustice, weasel words, heavily legalled:
"My name is Lou Vincent and I am a cheat. I have abused my position as a professional sportsman on a number of occasions by choosing to accept money through fixing. I have shamed my country. I have shamed my sport. I have shamed those close to me. For that I am not proud. I lost faith in myself and the game. I abused the game I love."
And even this:
I do suffer from depression but it is absolutely no reason or excuse for all that I have done wrong.
