Do you mean allow ILLEGAL drug dealing or the practice of neglignet medicine by facilitating/enabling doctors? Let's not forget about a level playing field/bicycle tour when it becomes a competition to who can afford or gets the best chemists and mds.

Anyone can train,eat and strategize but not everyone can afford the PEDS, pharmacists, chemists and doctors. Or pay the consequences, I don't want my health insurance paying for suffering peds users/abusers.

Lance Armstrong dominated cycling for SEVEN years after he recovered from life-threatening cancer. According to him, we should believe that he was perhaps the only clean athlete in a sport rampant with roid use.

We are not outraged because nobody cares about the sport in the US. What is alarming about Armstrong though, is the fact that he has painted himself as a white knight, thru the millions raised thru the Livestrong Foundation.

It is a positive that has been founded upon a negative, if Armstrong is guilty. That would make Armstrong no better than a televangelist, or corrupt politician. He has made millions from commercial endorcements with Nike, the US Postal Service, the Discovery Channel and Radio Shack among others.

He has cashed in.

The problem with this is that if he is clean, he is a victim of rampant jelousy. His former teammates and other US and world biking luminaries pointing the finger at him because they could not achieve what he accomplished. If he is dirty, he cashed in on a formula that other could not. He masked years of use, in the face of competitor after competitor being found guilty of use.

He is the most unusually lucky athlete we have ever seen in either case. It is hard to judge him in the American court of opinion. Perhaps if he were European, the presure on him would be greater. He benefits from being a citizen in a nation that only cares about who he is, not what he did to become who he is.

That is what seperated Armstrong from Barry Bonds.
Americans actually care about Baseball!

He is hiding like I was. They will find you Lance. But they suck at it, so it will take a while. Want to buy a compound in Pakistan?
