This is a fair summary of where I'm from, I'd say. I care more about doping than I do about those who doped.To summarise my position and interest in the case: I "like" Armstrong in the same manner as someone "likes" the commandants of the Majdanek extermination camp if he/she points out to someone that the initial and widely circulated body toll of 1.38 million is wrong and too high and the current estimate is around 78.000 death people.
David Walsh met Sandro Donati one time, early into the pursuit of Armstrong:
"Sandro told me something important: going after Lance Armstrong couldn't be what it was all about because the bigger picture was what mattered. Cycling was far more important than one competitor and if you pursue one and become too associated with that pursuit, that is not good."
Too often it feels like we've forgotten what we're fighting.
And too often it feels like we're happy to sacrifice truth in that fight.
