If the public knows about it, the public cares. When the public knows about it, the public cares.
I don't believe it is a logically valid conclusion to state that because the public was excited about the game that was played with clandestine use of illegal performance-enchancing drugs that you can say the public supports performance-enchancing drugs. Part of the excitement about the game was the belief that it was honest.
The public isn't being hypocritical about wanting to clean up the game. The public wants a clean game. It always has and it always will.
