Just don't put people on a pedestal –

Personally, I believe (try to for the most part) that people are innocent until proven guilty.  If I am always suspicious then I cannot enjoy performances of good athletes in the moment of the victory.

You have to be careful if someone you do not know is caught cheating and that, to you, is a let down – that seems a bit weird.  You are not a part of their life.

Use their getting caught cheating as an example to teach others.
