There's no way I can possibly know the truth, but it appears that all had financial or other motives to bring him down.

I read that Lance's net worth is around $125 million. He may well have to give some back, and while his future earning potential is lost, I can't worry about him too much.
The evidence is beyond the civil threshold of preponderance; I think there is no longer reasonable doubt not only that he doped but of the shameless intimidation of his associates and their families.
Those threats were crimes, IMHO.

And his treatment of teammates, employees, and those around him is what, in the end, makes him a despicable human being.

These things would tend to be forgiven. Talent goes a long way and people will admire it even if the person is a complete jerk. But cheating to get there? The guy deserves to be tarred a feathered and driven out of town, as it were.

LOL I guess there is somethings that just can't be stripped. Magazine covers, old news papers in archives, Trillions of Pictures on the net and computers scattered around the world, posters, books.

Lance will always be, for generations to come regardless of what is said or what is tried to be done about him.

Ill gotten gains.

I wonder what his kids think about him now ?.


What I wanna know is....why was a guy who's a multi-millionaire through his winnings and endorsement deals charging Livestrong $150,000 to speak at their functions, especially since he's the guy that created the charity. If he was such a humanitarian wouldn't he speak at the functions for free ?.

Methinks this whole Livestrong charity was just a scheme to funnel money back to Lance for life. Pretty sweet scheme...create cancer charity--> collect donations--> charge your own charity to speak at their events.

With a deal like that you're all set, all you have to do is create events for you to speak at and the money keeps rolling in.

Well I'll be danged....I just posted that and Googled the latest on Armstrong and it says he now resigned from the board of Livestrong too.

Wonder if he'll still show up to speak at their functions and get paid for it ?.

When I look at that I'm reminded of the end of Citizen Kane where he's sitting in his mansion all by himself.
