Doping...

so, do yall really think sir Lance Armstrong dopes or did?
if so, does it change your opinion about him winning/finishing the TdF?

Wow, the number one Lance-hating troll on this forum has shown up in a thread about Armstrong. I am starting to wonder if you are doing the same thing Armstrong was doing...setting up your phone to get updates any time someone posts something about Armstrong.

P.S.- Your signature just shows how insecure you are and how much I have gotten into your head. LOL

this topic has been absolutely beat to death, resurrected, and beat on some more. I would just search and read some of the epic older discussions.

not that it matters one damn bit, but here's my take:

- if he doped and got away with it, I would think others have done so as well.
- whether he doped or not, winning 7 times is no easy feat. it takes a hell of an individual and a hell of a team. you won't see this record broken anytime soon.

First off, I dont "hate" him. 2nd, it shouldnt be a "surprise" I'm in an Armstrong thread, as thats what the thread is about. You apparently don't like my response(2 words bothered you enough to respond, nice)

You must be speaking from experience? since it appears YOU'RE doing exactly what you claim I am? It's completely lost on you though, thats not surprising either(I think you do this, just to get clowned all the time).

Actually, despite your "theory", it's because it's comic gold what you said, and I enjoy showing folks, just how completely full of #$% you are. It's a daily reminder, mostly for the comic gold factor though. I think it's you who are butthurt that I pointed it out? Plus, I get a good laugh out of it.

This will be the last, and ONLY time I "respond" to you in this thread. Not surprising, you'll respond back in hopes I do. Back up the faildozer.

Wait, I thought I was on ignore.

No, wait, you say you have me on ignore, yet read my posts and use a quote from me as your sig.

Can you at least come up with a thought of your own, instead of just copying what I say like some five year old?

Could you also post something that has an ounce of logic and intelligence in it?

Nice to see such balanced discussion.
Did Lance dope? Maybe.
Can it be proved? nope
Did he and his team beat the crap out of everyone else? Yep.
Did he survive cancer? Yep

He beat the best dopers in the world and survived cancer. Yeah, I'm a fan.

Ding, ding, ding! We have winner!

I always read the threads about this subject, but I never respond because it's just so controversial and it always degenerates into name calling and worse, but your post really summed it all up and it hit the nail on the head, at least for me.

So now I'm on record - I'm a fan to!

Doping is common in all sports, starting in high school. Why is this a big deal? Watch the Superbowl this weekend and you will see 22 guys on the field who are doping.

Did Lance dope? Absolutely. Was everyone else doped? Absolutely. Is doping prevalent in ALL sports? YES! Get over it, move on.

Lance has been very good for biking in USA.
