Hero or Cheater?

In the end I guess the only person who will ever really know is Lance Armstrong. He'll have to live and die with what he did or did not do.

Is he a persecuted hero or a cheating doper?

Either way, he's given up the fight, calling the whole thing a silly witch hunt.

One governing body says that's proof he's a cheater. Another one says not so fast. Lance says there comes a time when enough is enough and this is that time.

He says the proof is in the fact that he's passed hundreds of drug tests over the course of his career.

Guilty or innocent, the one thing I know for sure is that it's crazy to have a professional sport be so screwed up that it could take away titles from someone from years past. That's an insane and screwed up system and it needs to be cleaned up. This would be an outrage in this country if this was the NFL, but it's professional cycling so the mainstream sports fan isn't really all that interested I guess.

Since I am a cyclist, when these stories about Lance come up I am often asked if I think he cheated.
I don't know....and that's the part that troubles me.
Many people around the sport will have a strong opinion when answering that question but the bottom line is that they don't know either.
Like I said, only Lance knows....and if he did cheat....he's gotta live and die with that on his head.
