No matter what Lance Armstrong rocks, because he won the most prestigious race in cycling seven yours in a row. I don't know how he did it, don't really care.

Who has watched the Tour de France since he stopped racing? Not me, but I was on top of it every day while he was winning all the time.

And he passed the drug tests, so that's enough for me. Why strip his victories? Who's going to be declared champion post ex facto? Probably some other guy that was using EPDs. Because, how are you going to go back in time and find the first-place "clean" athlete. Just because you pass a drug test doesn't make you clean.

And while I'm at it Barry Bonds is still the home run king and Roger Clemens remains one of the best pictures of all time.

If someone else surpasses them I'll be impressed. If they do it without increasing their hat size I'll be even more impressed.

Let's look at football. But no, we go after a guy who retired on races won over a decade ago. Let it go. Focus on the present. Armstrong may have doped, but it was a level playing field. This witch hunt accomplishes nothing,

What do they propose? Strip him of his seven titles and give them to the second place riders? Those guys may well have been using PEDs too. Then what? Let's drop this and move on.... develop some better blood tests.

Move on! The French are still mad that an American dominated their sport.

For the US to continue to facilitate this is a joke.

Let it go!

We oughta strip Eric Holder of his position, salary, severance and everything else for lying to all of us and abusing his position. Get him out. That is more relevant as he is still in it.

Let me make sure I understand. Lance Armstrong is going to be stripped of his titles so they can be awarded to some Euro who no doubt did the same thing. How many of my tax dollars are going to this agency? Maybe this gestapo organization would be a good place to trim the federal budget.

Did we learn nothing from the mccarthy hearings in the 1950's?
Tell us your friend cheated, or we will ban you, and say you cheated.
Tell us who else cheated, if you do not tell us anyone, then we will assume you cheated.
