I would be more interested in a quantitative analysis of just how big the edge was over the other known doping methods of the time.  Did it enable him to far exceed any other doped human, or was it just another instance of doping in a sport riddled with it?  Were there any riders in the peloton that were not doping?  If they are going to hold these races and claim they are dope free, who is going to be declared the winner for any year where the vast majority are using?  

I am not saying he was in the right, or even that he was a good team leader.  Just like the current topic in baseball as it relates to their HOF voting, if the people who make the rules are going to enforce them, then we need to know no one is getting around the rules.  Bonds might have played by the rules as they were written at the time, but no one puts up better numbers after 30 like he did, and the improvement was all the indictment needed.

Lance might have been a great rider without the drugs, but we will never know.

I'm glad to see he finally owned up to it. He was making a fool of himself continuing to act like he was innocent. His buddy Hincapie lives up the street from me and owns a couple businesses around town. He admitted his doping a few months ago and no one really seems to be to bothered by it as he's known as a genuinely nice and decent fellow otherwise.

Methinks that to the extent cheaters put pressure on others to cheat in order to compete... then yeah, I think we should care.  Not about them personally, but about justice and fair play.

Don't want "cheating" in pro cycling?

Then shorten the damn races! A hundred to a hundred fifty miles in a day over mountains for three weeks straight with two days off? That's like demanding American professional football players refuse to use helmets. Or corrective surgery. RGIII should either get well on his own without medical aid or he should leave the game. Cutting open his knee will certainly enhance future performance: shouldn't be allowed.

For i see two issues. Breaking established competitive rules and when caught rule breakers should suffer the consequences as laid down by those very-same rules. Then there's the far fuzzier notion of "fair play" that reminds me of that old movie about Olympic Competition Chariots of Fire[i] where, as i recall, having a [i]coach was considered unfair and cheating. Comes back to Armstrong in a way, his use of drugs to stay healthy during the Tour de France was cheating but his use of drugs to stay healthy when under the threat of his cancer was not? Rules of sport are by their nature arbitrary but "performance enhancing drug" rules seem more arbitrary than most.  How much was Armstrong's performance enhanced by his chemotherapy? I'd say quite a lot, he's talented but even he wouldn't have been all that competitive were he dead.

My two cents is simply require professional medical supervision and talk off the pharmaceuticals phobia. RGIII's surgery and drug usage related to same is accepted: I'd say consider why? We want to go back to "the natural" body and state of competition? Ban all medical treatments for anything for the career of an athlete. Back to the "pure" state of nature!

You can make sports as easy as 4th grade homework -- and some people will still want to cheat -- and the more people think they can get away -- the more cheating there will likely be -- until the system loses all integrity and simply collapses altogether.

Difficulty aside, there is also the prize money at the other end...

Possibly but it's guaranteed at those insane levels. Professional American football is similarly burdened in my opinion.

Otoh I've less emotionally engaged: breaking the rules means risking getting caught and getting caught ( the job of the referees etc ) means accepting the rules specified punishment. No more no less and without the "cheating" emotionalism.

Eddie Merkx got caught violating the rules, so did Alberto Contador. Both still retain championships.

I am not condoning Armstrong's behavior, but from what little I have read, I think Greg LeMond using that phrase in an interview is a hardly proof that Armstrong destroyed anyone.    

You have to come up with more than that to back up your accusation.

IF he DOES admit doping...

Note that the Tour de France has already decided that Armstrong's seven titles will not be awarded to anyone--mainly because most of the people who finished behind him have already admitted/been convicted of doping.  It's hard for me to be really angry at Armstrong over any of the rest of those guys.  

And for everyone who complains about what a dirty sport cycling is...I would just point out that cycling has the toughest PED testing policy of any sport.  And yes, they catch lots of violations.

And if the NFL, FIFA, MLB, NHL, etc had similar testing policies, they would find the same number of violators, or more.

Follow the money.

Yet they never detected a banned substance with all the endless testing that a seven time tour champion is subject to. Yet Landis and Contador were detected... And lost their titles for those races where they were found to have violated the rules.

Somewhat of a puzzle all around and probably why as recently as this past fall Contador, not an Armstrong fan by any means, was quoted as feeling Armstrong was being treated unfairly.

If you believe the testimony of  Frankie and Betsy Andreu (which I do) then Armstrong is guilty of pressuring Trek to dump Lemond's bikes.  Plus slandering Frankie and Betsy, which seemed to happen to lots of Lances teammates-people who helped him win.

Marion jones and Barry Bonds never tested positive either.

Whether other people cheated is irrelevant - ask any teacher who's graded an exam.

Those who say he didn't ruin others lives,read some of the accounts by those who spoke up and tried to tell their side of the story. He sued people and Ora's over this.

All the little Lance fanboys simply change their tune from "he never doped" to "everyone doped, it's the only way anime could compete".

HSF - I typically find your arguments pretty sound - but the analogy to surgery and medicine is, IMO, absurd. The intention of repairing a torn ACL isn't to improve anyone's athleticism, it's to repair an injury. Just as Lance didn't have chemo so he could win the TDF. The doping? Not so much.

Medical assistance is medical assistance IMHO. The worship of natural competition seems to rule it all out which IS absurd, and my point. The PED issue is rather arbitrary and artificial.. Granted sports competition rules usually are, why three strikes and not four or two? Why aspirin or surgery and not a pharmaceutical which allows faster recovery from competition wear and tear, injury or training?

If RGIII wasn't interested in winning he'd not be getting his LCL repaired.
