Armstrong and his cronies wrecked careers, made threatening phone calls to women, brought legal suits against journalists (complete with perjured testimony); all to screw anybody who dared to speak the truth (even if that person did so because he as called up by a grand jury). You and I would be behind bars for what Armstrong and his cronies did. Very few other riders, teams and support casts did the like. He also had inside help at UCI: telephone calls to announce out-of-competition tests and testing riders threatening Armstrong on GC at the Tour when requested by Postal/Discovery. It wasn't remotely an even playing field.
