Good way of looking at it.

I think it also helps that he was only with Conte and BALCO for that one fight, and achieved a lot before and after the DLH rematch. He also claims he didn't know EPO was illegal, which may be hard to believe, but you never know, these guys aren't biochemists. It's the same reason I can't really hate Margarito; I don't like him and I'm pretty sure he loaded his wraps, but I don't really know so judgement beyond the facts is arbitrary. Shane made a mistake, his reputation suffered, and has brought us exciting fights for a long time outside of that incident.
