    Lance Armstrong Yes/No Poll

    My hypothesis is that one's opinion in the previous thread is colored by the length of time, and depth to which one has followed professional cycling. I'm betting the 99er crowd is much more likey to be in the Armstrong didn't dope camp.

    You should make a Texas and everyone else option, those results would be interesting.

    Where's the "I don't know and don't really care" option?

    You can choose that option by not posting. Or do you want us to know you don't care.

    Define PED?

    We know he used EPO during his cancer recovery and subsequent treatment.

    ok, for the pedantic, performance enhancing drugs on the banned substance list according to the UCI, without a medical exemption approved by the UCI. If that isn't accurate enough of a definition I'm open to edits.

    How about a simple poll with a couple answer choices instead of one with answer choices A through H?
    Livestrong. The personal fundmaker of Lance Armstrong. The company who are in business to not donate to cancer research, but only to inform people that cancer is bad.

    Armstrong. The man without integrity, no care for the sport, and no problem with testing positive for EPO and making donations to cover it up.

    I can't answer this, this question reminds of the Quebec referendum question.
    To me, the question reads "Armstong may or may not have used PED's, but it's likely he did, maybe, at sometime."

    Did he use PED? Yes. And so did almost everyone else who finished in the top 50 at the TdF. I'm reading From Lance to Landis right now. It goes into more about Dr. Ferrari than you have read about in the past. So far it's a good book.

    The wording of the question and answers make your poll almost impossible to understand.

    i've been an avid fan of bike racing since high school (class of 84) and the hinault/lemond/fignon era. i voted no because i really do want to believe in lance. call me naive but he is one of my heros.

    I voted 'no', but I think he used PEDs before he got cancer.

    I think he had too much to lose with his cancer campaign to use PEDs afterwards.
