Should Lance Armstrong be treated like a criminal for doping?

I don't know if he actually did anything criminal.

Possibly. Did he obtain the substances he used legally? Was there an element of fraud in what he did?

Mostly, I don't care about the whole Lance Armstrong story wry smile

I don't care. I don't follow sports and have not read enough about this. I say legalize all or most drugs anyway.

Not a criminal, but I think he should be banned for life from competitive sports, stripped of his awards, and subject to all appropriate civil litigation against him. We should not give him another chance. We should give him nothing but negative consequences for what he did (not just doping but lying about it extensively).

No. Banning him for life from cycling and vacating his wins is sufficient. Also, there's no need to pile on.

Yes, when you think of the sponsorship money he has received over the years.
Making a heartfelt apology on Oprah, doesn't account for the hurt caused by all the contestants who rode with him during those years.

And anyone who has a yellow wrist band with 'Live Strong' should now burn it. Seriously, I'm not kidding here.

I haven't been paying much attention, but I found this article interesting.

No, since doping isn't a criminal offense; it's just banned.

I don't know why, but when I read the question, I pictured Buzz Lightyear. I can only imagine that I confused Stretch Armstrong and Neil Armstrong.

I had to read up on this a little to even know who he is. I don't have strong opinions about the use of performance-enhancing drugs in sport. I think it is a little over-blown as a controversy. I suspect if they broke it down into two classes of sports, one that allowed doping and one that didn't, sport fans would probably lose interest in the no doping version.

I think it kind of sucks. He was a role model for so many. Very disappointing.
posted 18-Jan-2013 4:12pm  
I know nothing of the case.

Lance Armstrong he has a lot that he is hiding and not telling the whole truth and coming out clean there is a lot of Lance Armstrong baggage

Coming clean and confessing makes him more admirable, IMO. Disappointing, but it is cool that he is doing the right thing, even though it will cost him a lot.

Yes how sweet of him to confess before Oprah Winfrey but yes it will cost him dearly maybe the shirt off his back and cost lance Armstrong his pants? ha ha

I don't really know what that means.

I feel sorry for him.

I imagine there are alot of athletes that have used drugs, but haven't the conscience that Armstrong has....wanting to come clean. Cheating of this kind, is cheating others. Can he go to jail?
posted 20-Jan-2013 7:24am  
No, for perjury.

Yes but not for being a doper. Treated like a criminal for being a lying manipulative douche that made fools of so many many people.
