Vote: Did Floyd Landis cheat to win?

A story which seemed like a respite from the police blotters and drug scandals that seem to keep popping up in the world of sports now looks like it might be just another in a long line of depressing tales.

Floyd Landis, who put together one of the most memorable comebacks in the history of the Tour de France during Stage 17, reportedly tested positive for high levels of testosterone after the stage win. Landis sailed into Paris just days later to claim the eighth overall win in a row for an American rider, but now the victory appears shrouded in controversy.

Instead of celebrating the accomplishments of an athlete who will need hip replacement surgery in a matter of weeks, we're left to ponder another tainted triumph. So what's your take, SportsNation? Do you believe the reports? And would a positive test for Landis change your opinion of Lance Armstrong?
