Lance Armstrong, love or loathe, in 2019

But he has been treated differently, and that doesn't seem fair.
Getting worked up over whether someone who behaved particularly egregiously, both within his sport and beyond, receives fair or consistent treatment under the rules of that sport seems a bit pointless.

Makes more sense to be pleased that someone who behaved so despicably has had most of their sporting record expunged, and that they have been rewarded for that behaviour by being given a dose of something they really don't like for a change..

It does not. Riis did not win the tour according to the rules, writing him back into the victories was a bad mistake.
But he’s there officially albeit with a star. Armstrong is not shown in any way. Whether you like someone personally or not should not have a bearing on how the rules are applied.
