I don't particularly care about PED use in sports. Just never understood why some guys are forgiven so easily.
It comes down to likability, plain and simple. Also, people are quick to forgive those who admit their mistakes, and not so quick to forgive those who blatantly lie time and time again ie: Braun, Clemens, Bonds, etc.
