I think the point is that

I think the point is that they're tough competitors and, when caught in a culture of doping, it doesn't seem like such a big deal - especially when your threatened with your career. Self righteous people posting anonymously on a forum and taking personal shots a these guys is about as cool as doping.
Just one guys opinion.

All dopers suck....period.

He's out schmoozing and selling his book while he is serving a measly 6 month ban? If he donates the proceeds from the book to BikePure.org or some worthy anti-doping cause, I might change my view of him. Until then he SUCKS just like Lance and all the rest. As far as I am concerned, we don't need these people in the sport anyway. There are plenty of clean up and coming riders Like Taylor Phinney and TJ VanG that we can look up to and rebuild the sport from there. Lets concentrate on the young clean riders. Can you honestly say any of the dopers from the past would add anything of value to the competition? While you watch them, you know they cheated in the past, so how can you ever trust them again? I would just as soon see, TJ, Taylor, Froom and Wiggins, riders that I know are clean, duking it out on the slopes of Alpe D'Huez. The entertainment is just as exciting. It's time to cut out the cancer and heal the sport.

Deep Thoughts

Integrity is like virginity, once you lose it you can't get it back.

Tom D lost his (integrity, that is) and he can't get it back, can't buy it back, no matter how many kiddie rides he leads. He cheated and can't ever be trusted. He's proven he has no integrity nor strength of character.

You know what else "sucks"....

Talking to people who refuse to consider nuance, motivation, remorse or contribution to the sport. It's comfortable and easy to compartmentalize things when you only have a good and bad category.

Also how do you know these other riders are clean? I have no idea whether they are or not, but if I've learned anything from the USADA bust this year, it is that neither youth, vocal condemnation of doping, nor outgoing personality is indicative of ethical riding.
