    For the world to think that cheating to win was his idea, was his plan, it was him who bullied everyone into doing it, is a mindless idea. Please, get semantic.

    A world champion shot put thrower, C.J.Hunter was caught taking Nandrolone in competition a few years ago. Nandralone! A highly detectable (but relatively safe) anabolic.

    Now why would athletes at the top of their sports use such detectable substances?

    Cycling was in disarray in the ’90′s. It needed a hero to market the sport globally, more specifically to the USA (Now worth hundreds of millions/annum). Who better than an American cancer survivor.
    Lance was given the drugs. He was told to take them and he wouldn’t be caught. Either that or have no career (given his health complications).
    I hope he comes out and blows the lid on it all. However I think he’s too big of a man to do it.
    He’s put himself at the top for so long all for what…to help thousands globally fight what brought him down in the first place. He’s still the best in my mind.

    Shame on those who blame him. All very misguided.

    A veteran is someone who at one point in his life wrote a blank check made payable to The United States of America for the amount of " up to and including my life". That is Honor, and there are too many people in America who no longer understand that.
