No one's drug taking impacted as many innocent people as Armstrongs. The way he brought down his detractors through legal action etc took a massive personal toll on those who were simply trying to do the right thing.
He also pressured junior teammates to dope, and had so much influence that he was able to kill off the careers of those who refused.
If he "still has your vote" what does that say about your ethics?
Everyone is responsible for their own actions, they ie: his teammates etc were/are all adults, he could not have achieved what he did without the support of others including team management and possibly even his sponsors. I'm not up to speed with the full story even if the full story still has not come out. For a start I'll read Tyler Hamilton's book.
Surely teammates, management etc could have stopped the roller coaster if they had wanted too but it's apparent that at the end of the day it was not only a case of winning at all costs but preserving the almighty dollar. It's like blaming the PM for what you may find wrong in Australia when more than one person is accountable.
I also don't need to defend my ethics but I find it quite immature to insult someone unknown to you who makes an assumption based on a possibly flawed premise.
