    Do You Think Lance Armstrong Should Be Stripped of His 7 Tour de France Medals?

    He will be erased from the history books

    He will be stripped of all his medals

    He will be banned from the sport

    Do you agree with this?

    No. PED's are part of sports.

    To strip him of those titles is just as bad as keeping Barry Bonds out of the HOF. It completely fails to recognize that his competition was also using PED's - and as such, was a level playing field (relatively).

    No. It's utterly pointless.

    They all cheat, everyone of them. It's riding a bike, who cares anyway.

    Considering the evidence, it is hard to say he isn't innocent, and with a ruling of guilty they have no choice but to strip his medals. If not they'd be undermining the rules and the integrity (or what is left of it) of the sport.

    Samples taken from the 1999 Tour were analyzed for EPO years later. No where near the entire field were on it. I can't recall the number but it was a surprisingly small minority. In the 20s I think.

    The "everyone did it" excuse is just a falacy.

    Usain Bolt is the next icon to come down like this. May still be a while. The entire Jamaican sprint team is juicing, but the main star takes the biggest fall. Doping will always be ahead of doping control.

    When they started backtesting samples from Olympics in the 1980's with modern methods, they decided not to publish the findings. There was too much there.

    That loser is no difference than Marion Jones, cheating is cheating. Dude should of been smart, and won 3, and kept it on the DL the rest of his life and no one would said sh1t. He got greedy, and got caught.

    Bunch of mormon nerds here who never made it beyond the JV squad. I doubt there's ever been a truly clean TdF winner. Ever. Leave the guy alone.

    Auction the medals and jerseys for cancer research. They all dope but you can't get caught without paying consequences, sux but rules and laws supposedly apply to all....oh yeah and put Pete Rose in the Hall of Fame.

    This asshole is sickening. His degree of righteousness is delusional when you read the investigators' reports about all the drugging and cover ups he was doing behind the scenes. He was highly organized and borderline obsessed with shooting the stuff, yet plays that pure white bred, holier than thou, USA image BS.

    If It wasn't for Lance Armstrong,would anyone care about the Tour De Farce,in the states?

    As far as Cheating goes, cycling teams have this down to a science,the process starts way before the event,Its a wonder anyone ever gets caught.
