What is the reputation of Lance Armstrong? Should it be tarnished?

    In my opinion it should not be, based on the evidence that almost every biker doped or used drugs. During the time of Armstrong's Tour De Frances, biking was more dirty of a sport, than baseball in the late 1990's. It doesn't make it right just because everyone else is doing it, however people are overlooking the main impact that Lance had on millions of people. He fought off cancer, and gave plenty of people reasons to believe they could also. Overall that should be the reputation of Lance Armstrong.

    His reputation is based on what people think of him.
    If people think he cheated to win, that is usually regarded as a negative. The attention he brought to the Live-Strong Foundation probably helped a lot of people.
    It's great that he won a personal cancer battle-- that's always something to cheer  about, but what if the chemicals he used promoted his cancer?
