Boulder's Tyler Hamilton made a big splash Sunday night via doping accusations made against former bicycling teammate Lance Armstrong on 60 Minutes.

Is Hamilton a squealer who should be criticized, not lionized for speaking out? Not according to one reader.

I saw Tyler win the Nationals a couple of years ago. He is a great racer and in my book a great stand up guy. Anyone who thought that Lance could beat the guys that were doping without doping himself is a fool. Way to go Tyler. It was a pleasure to watch you race. Best of luck in the future.
