You are either part of the solution or part of the problem......
Quote You.... Cycling is one of the dirtiest sport especially in the new millennium (just look up "list of doping cases in cycling" in Wikipedia) and I've heard from multiple radio hosts, avid cycling fans and sports fans alike, that it wouldn't surprise them if >80% of the cyclists in Tour De France used some sort of performance enhancing drugs...And I don't disagree with them. Cycling 200km a day for 20+ days is NUTS!

Bothers me that in a sport so apparently rife with doping and where doping is apparently the norm,our guy won 7 tour de France races and never got caught doing drugs, sure theres much accusations hearsay and finger pointing but as yet no trial to prove him guilty, In a sport where doping was the name of the game our guy gave the world a lesson on how its done,we won they lost and what do we do?express righteous indignation and get all moral and politically correct then trash our Champion probably destroying his life in the process , so what if he took some form of enhancement to give him a 1% advantage over every one else, good for him for smacking those pompous europeans upside of the head and beating them at their own game.

Get real. Your "guy" is a cheater, liar, fraud

The master manipulator didn't even TRY to wriggle out of this one, or was there no one left to sue?

You can continue to love a cheat, who got rich off cheating, who has brought a sport to its knees. Who cares though, right? "Your guy" showed em how it was done. Oh how inspiring. Being the best druggie.

Destroying his life? Never mind the other cyclists implicated in this, your yellow fever is reaching epic proportions!

What's the point of watching juiced up athletes? Does it inspire you? Does it make you believe that anything is possible? Does who has the biggest needle or drug kitty make you admire them in wonder?

What does society gain from a cheat?

.... And when riders have implicated themselves, it stops bring just a theory. You really think Hamilton, hincapie, leipheimer, Matt white all wanted THEIR names dragged through the mud in a bid to bring down your golden haired fraud?

I've got better things to do then watch cheats ride for 3 weeks. YOU might want cheaters, the rest of us want an honest contest.
