    I watched most of the TDF's that Lance won.

    The accusations have been out there for over 15 years and most people that have followed the story knew that there were gigantic holes in Lance's defense.  The common wisdom amongst most people in the sports world and, most especially in the cycling world, "knew" Lance was not telling the truth.

    Put another way, there were very few people that follow sports closely that were surprised about the recent "news".  As for those people that don't follow sports and view Lance through the lens of a celebrity or purely as a cancer survivor then I can understand them being surprised.  It's all about frame of reference and if you didn't "know" Lance was guilty before 6 months ago I can understand that but the reporting on this has been solid for a really long time.
