If he was the only one doping i'd probably be a lot less forgiving and probably feel as you do but as apparently 80%+ in the sport were doping he beat them all at their own game.
All his teamates made a lot of money and garnered much prestige thanks to being On a team with Armstrong, do you ever wonder why for no apparent financial gain and probable much financial loss they'd all come out at once and implicate themselves along with Lance because they could no longer live with their inner guilt?

So?
I don't care if 99% were cheating.
He cheated.
He denied cheating
He coerced and intimidated other riders into "the program"
He made millions off cheating
He was a leader, in cheating
He sued people who tried to speak out
He defamed these people and ruined THEIR lives
He stood on the podium and told the world he was clean
He created false hope in the minds of cancer sufferers that anything is possible
He created an empire off the back of lies, fraud and cheating
He took the opportunity away from honest cyclists the chance of winning.

My contempt for cheaters is equal. Don't care if you're the only one or in the "80%"
There is nothing admirable about being the best druggie

Yup, very well said. I'm amazed people can still defend this guy.

And its laughable to brush this off as hate. It's a factual analysis, not hate.

Jambo,

Are you just not reading what people are saying? It's way beyond the fact that he used steroids.
