Is this what it was like in 1999?

It seems like everybody loves Landis and was inspired by his ride (for good reason). Is this how people felt when Lance won his first Tour?

How many more does Landis have to win before everybody starts hating him?

As long as he pops the occasional wheelie and talks about having a beer with his teamates after rides, he will stay fairly well-liked, IMO

Then they'll start saying he's tainted, obviously drugged, or has had a hydaulic-atomic-electric hip put in or something.
