Default Lance Armstrong was the doping "Ringleader" according to USADA!

Investigators say cyclist Armstrong was doping ringleader - Yahoo! News

His legacy has been forever ruined.

Say what you will about his great work with Cancer, but as an athlete he turned out to be a complete fraud!

Furthermore, according to USADA, Lance Armstrong was much more than just a user, he was supplying it to all his teammates:

This has to be one of the GREATEST falls from grace in the History of American athletes....

What a huge fraud Armstrong actually was....

"What a fraud" says the bandwagon fan of an athlete that turned his back on the city of Cleveland and all his true fans. Then had the audacity to slap them in the face by making a show about it on national television At least Lance never turned his back on the U.S.A or his fans The good that came out of this is all the funds and support for Cancer Research his legacy brought. I'd rather this than the BS Lebron pulled breaking the hearts of hundreds of thousands of hardcore fans that literally worshipped the ground he walked on by taking the coward way out of a city that would bend over backwards for him for a ring Let the hazing begin, lol.

There is no truth out there on this. Everything is so tied up in webs of lies. All these guys have been dopers. Why are they to be trusted now? Makes so little sense to me. The USADA is a witch hunting organization that cannot be turned away. Where were these reports 8 years ago? I am not saying that he was clean by any means, but who has been? You cycle and win, guess what: YOU CHEATED. I am wondering when they will go and vacate Greg LeMond's titles from the 80s or whenever. What a joke.

I am disappointed in you Alex on this one. Saying that all the man has done for the WORLD is gone because he cheated (just like every other cyclist). Really? The man almost died and was able to come back and no matter what, WON. He encouraged so many to do better, and nothing you can say can take that away from them.

Does nothing to diminish him in my eyes. just like in baseball everyone is/was doing it so there is still a level playing field and he still won 7 consecutive races.

I guess it's just lame that he denied it for so long when everyone else was coming clean.

Riding at the pro level in Europe at that time though, you couldn't even finish a race if you weren't doping. There's nothing wrong with the athletes, it was the cycling culture at the time.

Oh I understand now. If everyone else is stealing then I may as well.

Thanks for the clarification

I know you are new to be unsuspended, but read what I wrote. I never claimed that he did not do it, but my claim is that everyone that has won has cheated. I think it was a coordinated effort to bring him down. Whether he cheated or not is not the crux of my piece, it is that bringing him down because he did what everyone else did is ignorant. Now if you want to show me people who survived ball cancer to be one of the greatest athletes of our generation, then I will rescind my statement and say that Armstrong did nothing for the world, and he is just a cheater, nothing else.

How the hell can you relate stealing to a person using performance enhancing drugs? When you steal from someone, there is a victim. When you use drugs, you are just screwing yourself up in the long run. Not everything is so black and white that you can state if this then that. Time for me to roll my eyes

Roll away. His logic is flawed that's all I was trying to say.

You're stealing from anyone else competing in the sport who is not using PEDs. You are also stealing from your sponsors. IIRC, the USPS sued him on those grounds.

PEDs, doping or not, he's done wonders while on this planet.

I will always like him and am proud to own these:

Doesn't change my view of him one bit. PEDs and cycling go hand in hand anyway.

Sports and PEDS go hand in hand. Everybody wants to be the best and some use drugs to get there.

Um....this isn't about me....I'm only posting a story, I have no idea why you would even bring this up?

Seriously, what does Lebron have to do with anything?

We're talking about Lance here....

He has done great work for cancer research, but I clearly said that as an "Athlete" his legacy is ruined, he turned out to be a fraud.

The evidence is damning and I have no reason to believe that USADA is out to get him for no reason.

BTW....there's a 1,000 page report where they interview former teammates of Armstrong and they all admit that he was doping and was supplying them with dope as well.

Sad so many people think that because something is done by so many even though it is now illegal that it's ok. Just because people had been doing it an getting away with it doesn't mean it's ok. This is why we have so many scammers and bigtime money schemes now. So many people feel they are entitled because everybody else is doing it. Wrong is wrong.
