Lance Used Roids

I don't like Lance Armstrong.  Why? Because I have read his books, that’s why.  Lance is a jerk and is way too arrogant for his own good.

Now onto the drug allegations.  Lance was winning the Tour at a time when a lot of other cyclist, great cyclist, were getting caught blood doping.  Now, there is no doubt in my mind that Lance was a great cyclist and has almost superhuman abilities and is naturally better than most cyclists. 

That said, my doubt is this.  Lance is not better naturally than the second best rider that is doping.  If everyone else was doing drugs and Lance was still winning, then Lance was doping too.  In weightlifting, a sport rife with steroid use, a guy going au natural hasn't got a chance against a juicer.  Same with baseball.  Bonds hits 40 something home runs for most of his career.  Does roids, hits 70.  Comes off roids and this year (almost halfway through the season) and has 11.

Say no to drugs,  say no to Lance.

I don't pay any attention to Lance, but I highly doubt anyone is surprised by this.

I'm not into Lance or cycling but I don't doubt he was doping.

No more can we just assume that our favorite players are no longer doping, shooting up or anything else for that matter. When we see something in sports that has never been done before, you must ask youself...I wonder is he is on the juice? In the modern days of increasingly harder to catch drugs who knows who cheating and who doesn't, just remember to be skeptical
