  1. I don’t blame him for doping since virtually every other cyclist he was competing against was also doping. When he went after people to destroy their careers for going public with information, that’s when he crossed the line.

    Still, you can’t ignore how much overwhelming good he did for cancer awareness and funding. His transgressions seen paltry and inconsequential by comparison.

  2. It’s ridiculous that the US Post Office was suing Armstrong for making them look bad, they do that all by themselves.

    Armstrong’s failure was in getting caught, not in using PEDs. When your entire life is devoted to cycling in a race that lasts for more than three weeks and you can lose by a matter of seconds, you’d have to be an idiot not to use drugs, particularly when you know someone else could use them and finish better than you. They’re all using something, they just hated losing to someone who was better no matter what they did.
