    I actually used to admire him. Cycling is worse than baseball. I heard on the radio today that 75 minor leaguers have tested positive performance enhancing drugs. No telling how high the doping percentage is in cycling.

    Me too. I was a big fan of Lemond and also Laurent Fignon. I just looked him up and saw that he died in 2010.

    Stripping him of his titles is a nice symbolic thing, but its not going to retroactively earn the guys who were more talented and clean the insane amount of bank that Armstrong made. So, forever tarnished reputation and rich as a CEO, versus clean rep and living modestly. Cheating pays.
