I haven't heard of Lance's doping scandal being mentioned in the same breath/news coverage as those four above, because Lance's scandal is way bigger in an international context than those guys. NBA and MLB controversies are American and parochial and I've not read of those scandals to the same extent as the coverage given to international pro cycling's and Armstrong's dramas. Who the heck is Michael Vick anyway?

However, I did hear one local commentator mention the Chicago WhiteSox/Shoeless Joe Jackson in the same breath as Armstrong.
