He did a lot to promote awareness for cancer. Few knew it existed before him.
He should have raced on a unicycle though, it would have made a lot more sense. 1 ball, 1 wheel, 1 cause - cancer awareness.
Well, he gets a little tiny amount of credit for disassociating himself from livestrong before he taints it any more.
Here's Lance giving a ***...
Is it wrong that I feel bad for Lance?
I'm pretty sure Lance is giving LOTS of fvcks. All those framed uniforms are now useless.
Just another asshole.
Useless? To whom?
They lack any and all of the significance that they held prior to his dumb ass getting caught.
obviously you've never competed.
He was the best cheater in a sport full of cheaters. I guess those shirts mean something.
Probably smart to distance himself from LiveStrong for now. However I think if he had just gone on a "break", he'd come back in 6 months and nobody would care. The public has a very short memory and tends to be very forgiving.
Competition at this level is basically entertainment to everyone else. He entertained, and made a sh!tload of money doing it. Armstrong didn't change the drug-slanted sport, he simply succeeded in it more than anyone else. I'm glad his team's doping unraveled, but I don't begrudge anyone trying to win in the sport using the same techniques as his competitors. That's not something to feel disgraced about imo, the tdf is still one of the most grueling competitions in all of sports.
Love his latest Twitpic.
He did win after all in a contest of cheaters.
Defiant to the end......
He never got caught actually!
What exactly would you accept as proof of his cheating?
A positive drug test.
Hmm, you mean like his 1999 samples that tested positive for EPO?
Face it, he's a cheat. He's the white Barry Bonds.
What is ridiculous is the donors that were asking for their money back because they felt they were "fooled".
It's a cancer charity, what is wrong with these people. How does him doping affect what the charity is doing...
Maybe now that he is resigning these people will drop it.
That's a much bigger douchebag move than taking epo.
Seriously, people wanted their money back? That is orders of magnitude worse than cheating...
My sarcasm meter must need calibration. It looks like you're suggesting cancer wasn't well known before Lance Armstrong?
There are a few of these articles, this is just the first on a google search.
Because that 'charity' was formed on the back of all his bullshit. All of it's promoting and fundraising was made under fraudulent circumstances, and it's main purpose was to serve as a promotional vehicle for Lance.
The fact that it is a cancer charity is irrelevant.
