Armstrong comes across to me as really arrogant.


I still like Armstrong. People push themselves to the very limit. To ride a bike for as long and as fast as Lance Armstrong did is impressive. I personally don't care that he used "performance enhancing drugs." Its his body and his choice. The choice to use anything comes with a consequence. Pro athletes use their body for our enjoyment, and then get the most money and fame when they excel, as we cheer them on. And then we complain because they didn't do it how you wanted them to; with only pure discipline and willpower. Well since we can't, how can you expect them to?
If you want to stop cheating in pro-sports, then allow for performance enhancing drugs. It's that simple.

You mean like 99% of every other competetive sports athelte.
When winning means everything --

or like how Richard Nixon, Bill Clinton, and General Petraeus were only sorry after they got caught?
