Lance Armstrong: Tyler Hamilton's Interview Shouldn't Alter Our Views on Lance

Lance Armstrong is about to find himself at the epicenter of yet another major controversy regarding performance-enhancing drugs after longtime teammate Tyler Hamilton accused the seven-time Tour de France winner of taking PEDs in preparation for his first three Tour victories, in 1999, 2000 and 2001.

Hamilton was interviewed by 60 Minutes earlier this week and told the news program that he had witnessed Armstrong injecting himself with EPO, a blood-doping drug that causes the body to produce more red blood cells, thereby boosting endurance. 

But while Hamilton's interview is certainly surprising, there's little there that will change your perception of Lance, whether you're a fan or a critic. In fact, both sides can find reasons why Hamilton's accusations are proof that Lance was a doper or that Hamilton is yet another former teammate looking to cash in on the PED claims that have dogged Lance's career.

Let's take a look and see why both sides will simply fortify their positions from Hamilton's interview.
