Do you feel bad for Lance Armstrong, now that his secret is out, or do you think he deserves whatever bad effects flow from his lies and cheating over so many years?

In short, does he still deserve credit for all the good he did for so many (even with performance enhancing drugs, he defeated cancer and did what most people could never do, sport wise), or does all the lying, character assassination of his detractors outweigh all that?

He deserves what ever happens to his career and loss of fortunes now.

He may have cheated, but he still has done so much good, I do feel bad for him.

I don't feel sorry for him at all.

I just watched the interview. I do feel he damaged a lot of people and still does not seem to have a lot of remorse, but I cannot ignore that he still gave so much to those in need, and inspired so many cancer patients to go above and beyond what they thought they could. That has to count for something, doesn't it?

He let down so many people who viewed him as a hero. I feel no sympathy for a man who didn't care enough about others to realize he's hurting them more than he would be hurting himself.

This is how I feel.

I neither feel sorry for him, nor do I feel he deserves bad things to happen to him. He made a choice, and it was his right to make that choice. In general, in life there are natural consequences to every choice we make - sometimes we end up facing them and sometimes we get away without facing them. Who's to say which way is more fair?

He's a fallible human like everyone else. Doesn't make him evil and doesn't make him a saint.

I feel bad for him, don't forget all the things he's done for the cancer community.

It makes me really sad he cheated, but athletics in general are a community that is in trouble with chemicals.

He's still a role model, and the philanthropic work he has done is amazing. I just hope he finds a way to teach young athletes to learn from his lesson.

I don't feel sorry for him. He made the choice to do whatever to win even if that meant unethical ways to win. I feel like there is a lot of evidence to show that most of the racing cyclist community that were winning were doping during this time.

He has done a lot of good and I don't think this negates it, but his reputation as an athlete is gone.

He deserves it, he knew what bad things could happen to him for cheating.

no sympathy for cheaters. he's not a demon, and does not deserve to be hated by those who are not in his life or sport...but he certainly does not deserve sympathy.

If you look real close, he's caused quite a bit of harm, even if he has done good things in the cancer field.

I am kind of neutral because I don't really follow celeb news, but since he's done so much good, maybe I don't care if he's told a lie? I don't know. We're all humans, we all lie. I guess I just don't care enough about the topic to deserve to have a real opinion, but I do think it's awesome for him that he beat cancer.

I don't think he deserves to have bad things happen to him.. I mean as disappointed as I am he sure has done a lot of good things too.

I don't think he "deserves everything," but I also don't feel sorry for him. I'm indifferent. It is what it is. He made a choice to do steroids. So what? It's not hurting anyone else, is it?

I don't care too much about him. Most news stories about him in the past 3-4 years make seem like a pretty loathsome individual, for whatever that's worth. Looking at the situation, though, there's not much reason to feel sorry for him. He did something he knew to be wrong, he doggedly denied it, and now he's fessing up because it probably looks like his best out.

Ditto. He's not the only one to blame though. Just follow the money. Still pretty amazing, despite cheating what he accomplished, but he deserves what he gets now.

Don't care about him...I feel bad for all the people who entered the same competitions as him and were legit on everything yet didn't get their medals because of him.

Other than that I don't give two shits about him. He just messed with other people's futures (who were competing) and that's not fair.

I have no sympathy for him. He seems arrogant and doesn't seem to feel bad for his actions even though it could've put the entire sport in jeopardy.
