Is the integrity of some people riding bicycles worth spoiling if it means significant benefits towards medical research? I'd say yes.
That's fair enough, I guess. Modern soccer has a lot of problems, from match fixing to general douchebaggery. I respect Sporting Kansas City for their naming rights deal - but I'd also expect any club to not associate themselves with known drug cheats.

I know a lot of people take a "que sera sera" to this. You say some people riding bicycles, but without that Armstrong is just some other guy that survived cancer. And now he's just some guy that cheated his way to fame. More power to what he's done for cancer, but it should not be awarded with naming rights. There are plenty of quality charities out there that do great work.
