Olympic gold medal cyclist Tyler Hamilton admits in next Sunday’s CBS news program “60 Minutes” that he took performance-enhancing drugs and accuses other top cyclists, including seven-time Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong, of doing the same.

If enough fellas come forth and say so, then it is sufficient to say Armstrong is a great cheater. Forget about using the legal system to get him. Them cheaters know very well it is difficult to detect doping if they do it right. Trial by media in this respect to counter it.
I think the question that should be asked is - who was NOT doping at that time!!! But then, I suppose they could always say that they had been eating Spanish beef steaks/burgers......!!
I find it unfortunate that those who accuse Armstrong of doping are generally in a position to gain from their accusations. Of course, they say personal gain has nothing to do with it. They say it is simply about wanting to be honest with everyone. Sure, after years of lying to everyone, you suddenly just want to be a good person, and sell a few books along the way. If you feel the need to live a better life, may be you should start with something like good old fashioned Confession? Oh, that's right, you don't get any money or attention for doing such a simple private act.
