Him doping took glory, fame, and opportunity from other individuals, and set forth a chain reaction of hate, retaliation, and deceipt. I never cared much for Lance anyways.

LIVESTRONG is a marketing ploy and gimmick. I think local communities w/ blatant non profit incentives to be more rewarding.

Anyone that leaves their wife after she stayed by their side during the entire cancer ordeal is a douche bag for life, especially if the other woman is Sheryl Crow.

No, Lance is a known douchebag.

what's shocking to me is just how BAD and how deep Lance was in, now it's being reported he was offering bribes to other cyclists, seems like with each new day new info/allegations come out.. shocking! 

What I'm doing right now, I'm chasing perfection.

prisoners of the moment,

you people really think he is the only one doping.

thats like saying hulk hogan was the only one on the juice in the wwf.

if lance were stripped of his titles and the runner ups from the races were crowned, can you guess how many of those winners also have doping scandals???

don't blame the image, blame the sport.

So why did Nike drop Lance and NOT Tiger? Is a man that cheats in a sport any better then a man that cheats on his wife?

post #70 of 76
Because him cheating on his wife is his own personal issue. It's not against the law like Michael Vick dogfighting or violating the rules of sports by using enhancements.

Still that means in some way form or fashion NIKE condones cheating. I mean Gillette dropped Tiger because of his actions in his personal life. Just because his was a legal action dose not change the fact that his actions were wrong.

That's Gillette. Just because they did it doesn't mean Nike has to. No, it doesn't mean Nike condones cheating on his wife, it means, 'Okay, you got problems with your wife, that's your personal issue. It's not gonna affect your game or anything, so we'll sit this one out.' His actions are wrong, but not against the law or any rules, therefore it doesn't affect Nike in anyway.

By the way, from what I hear, it's common knowledge in the Cleveland/Akron area that Lebron cheated on his wife before they got married all the time. Look what happened with him and Nike.

Nike's just doing what any other company will do. Unlike Tiger Woods and Kobe, Lance's career is over, and there's no more money to be made off him. All business.

We shouldn't worry to much. Lance Armstrong will LIVESTRONG! And so will USA products made in China. Go...under paid chinese workers with no benefits! Now that's Capitalism in a Socialist country. I just love it!!! No really I do. 

 

Scandal or not. I know first hand that steroids are the way to go to win I have seen it in actions from High School Athletes to College Athletes and it is great!
