    From all I have read there is little doubt he was doping but so was everyone else so it's an unfair punishment.

    I admired him when he was winning all those tours...now knowing how he won them puts a damper on all that

    To be honest with y'all... I don't understand what the big deal with doping is. I go to the gym quite often and have never felt a need to use roids but it's crossed my mind in order to push my body a little further. With that said, I don't see a difference between using roids and a better bike or different shoes. They ALL give the athlete certain advantages or at least are marketed as such. So why aren't all athletes made to wear the same shoes or same equipment in the Olympics? If the thing we are doing is making sure no athlete has an unfair advantage that is.

    I dont see how you can associate using enhancing drugs with choice of clothing...first of all if they allowed drugs you would be forcing athletes that dont want to use drugs into having to use them to be able to compete. Sports achievements should be as they always were personal achievement through hard work and talent not better living through chemicals....clothing is a personal choice...every athlete has the choice to wear whatever clothing they BELIEVE will enhance their ability...not one shoe fits all...

    As someone who couldn't care less about sports and has almost zero knowledge of sporting trends and whatever, and I say this in the interest of full honesty and disclosure...

    ...why does anyone care about doping in sports, in any manner? Seriously, I don't get it. Why should I care if Armstrong used growth hormones or whatever to win a race? Why are MLB players being hauled in front of Congress? Why is any of this in any news source outside of SportsCenter?

    This is just such a shame. I don't know what evidence they have, but apparently Armstrong has stopped fighting it. I think it's fair, though. What about the guys who tried and tried to compete with him? It's not fair to them.

    If they can't find doping with a blood test before the race, though, then they should just let everyone do it, in my opinion. What's the point of having drug tests if, even though you pass, they're going to nail you on down the road?
