Lance Armstrong DROPPED by Nike, Steps Down from Livestrong.

Nike says evidence overwhelming against him.

The fall from grace continues.

I wonder how many barrels of oil are being dropped into the dumps with all of the "Lance Armstrong" bracelets being thrown away.

by Anonymousreply 310/17/2012

Depends on the spin, I suppose.

The Daily Beast Is Hitting It Hard:

"The days of ubiquitous yellow bracelets feels like a distant memory. In a statement to the press, Lance Armstrong said he is stepping down as chairman his cancer-fighting charity, Livestrong, so the group can focus on its mission.

The announcement comes on the heels of the USADA’s 1,000-page dossier in which more than twenty-six people—including fifteen cyclists—implicated themselves in a doping ring in order to prove Armstrong was the ring leader. Lance will remain on the charity’s 15-person board.

Also on Wednesday, Nike Inc. announced it would be terminating its contract with Armstrong, saying in a statement that there is “seemingly insurmountable evidence” that he “participated in doping and misled Nike for more than a decade.”

I think that means they are calling him a liar, a cheat & they fired him.

Setting aside the doping is wrong thing, why do people ate him so much. I don't recall ever hearing that he's a jackass. He runs a nonprofit, and seemingly uses his celebrity to some positive purpose, maybe not as much as others, bu certainly more than most celebs.

In the scheme of offenses doping is less serious in m mind than many other things for which people have been easily forgiven.

Just wondering.

This should provide some answers, R17. They remind me of the Komen Foundation which promotes "awareness" and actually donates very little to research.

[quote]If Lance Armstrong went to jail and Livestrong went away, that would be a huge setback in our war against cancer, right? Not exactly, because the ­famous nonprofit donates almost ­nothing to scientific research. BILL GIFFORD looks at where the money goes and finds a mix of fine ideas, millions of dollars aimed at “awareness,” and a few very blurry lines.

I don't understand that aspect, either. Why is it that professional athletes taking performance-enhancing drugs are pursued with such relentless fervor? Years of hearings and investigations and testimony before Congress -- they take it more seriously, even, than a president getting a blow job or one-time billionaire Martha Stewart making $48,000 on a stock tip. And for what? Because someone's bedrock notion of "sporting behavior" was upset?

Greg LeMond is having the last laugh here. Armstrong tried to go after him early on after LeMond expressed concern about his relationship with Ferrari, the Italian doping physician. He tried to sabotage LeMond's contract with some bicycle company as retribution or to get him to shut up.

That said, it is SOOOO overblown. There are so many more things to spend our resources on then stupid athletes choosing to put poison in their bodies.

R16. That may be your response because we are all bombarded with so much news and noise trying to gain our attention nowadays--and you're feeling overwhelmed. However, "whatever" is not an appropriate response for everything. Some things are serious; others aren't.

Some people are paid enormously for their accomplishments, and when we find out that they cheated, lied, deceived, etc., it's not always a "whatever" moment.

Of course, none of us know Lance Armstoring personally so we don't feel the immediate affect. But for the rewards that some people are given, I think we'd like to feel that they achieved their goal fair and square. When we find out that they didn't, sometimes it's a disappointment, sometimes it's scandalous, and sometimes it's illegal.

But this bombardment of news nowadays causes us to treat many things as "whatever" even when that's not really an appropriate response.

R18, I see what your saying. But so many athletes doped when Lance was blazing through the Alps. We all know he doped. Hell, every cyclist did/does. So what's the point? Again, I'm glad he was caught, but I would much rather have all the effort and resources it took the feds to sniff out Lance's wrongdoing and transfer them to political or corporate malfeasance.

I would rather have our tax dollars going after people that can do actual harm.

She knew about the doping. In their house, the code name for PED was "butter," because they kept it in the fridge.

[quote]I don't recall ever hearing that he's a jackass.

I guess you never read anything about the guy. He is infamous for threatening people, his cycling buddies, when he suspected them of treason.

Read this article about his former masseuse, and how he did his best to ruin her life after she had spoken about his doping for a book:

[italic]Ms. O’Reilly first went public in 2003, when she was paid to cooperate on a book, “L.A. Confidentiel: Les Secrets de Lance Armstrong,” that sought to expose Mr. Armstrong as a drug cheat. Mr. Armstrong sued her for libel.

Ms. O’Reilly said Mr. Armstrong demonized her as a prostitute with a drinking problem, and had her hauled into court in England. Ultimately, a legal settlement was reached, and Ms. O’Reilly tried to pick up her life, sometimes talking about Mr. Armstrong and drugs, but to little notice.

Mr. Armstrong sued Ms. O’Reilly and The Sunday Times of London, which had excerpted the book. The legal battle lasted three years.

“He was suing me for more than I was worth,” Ms. O’Reilly said. “I was worried he would bankrupt me.”

In the end, as part of a settlement, The Sunday Times wrote an apology. Ms. O’Reilly paid no money, she said.

“Emma suffered from the lawsuit the most,” Mr. Walsh said in an interview this week. “This woman was an opponent of Lance Armstrong and was completely vilified. Now, everyone wants to know. But where were they in 2004?”[/italic]

by Anonymousreply 2210/17/2012

He did the same to a fellow cyclist and his wife who were under [italic]subpoena[/italic] to testify in another court case in which Armstrong was the defendant. He wanted to sully their reputations either as retribution or to make them look as unbelievable witnesses. Probably a bit of both. Armstrong's personal assistant describes this in an Outside Sport online article. If you check out the article linked about there will be links to a series or articles about this.

by Anonymousreply 2610/17/2012

It's not just that Armstrong was vindictive and actively tried to ruin people who spoke out against him (and cycling is, still, a pretty small sport). It was that he wanted a strong team around him and essentially coerced his teammates into doping. Now, you can say that this shows a lack of character on their behalf, or that they might have been doping anyway - but not all of them were, not all of them wanted to, and they testified that they felt pressured to do so. It's one thing to dope, but it's a lot more serious to expect your teammates to dope as well - and to supply them with the product/s.

It was reported that Dave Zabriskie went back to his hotel room and cried after being given the decision to make, given that he came from a background that was affected by his dad's drug taking. Zabriskie still took the drugs and can be judged for that, but if it's true it's one small insight into what it felt like to be a professional athlete who's been coerced by his team captain into doing something illegal.

He also paid off cycling officials to cover up when he failed tests results and subsequently had them alert him whenever testing people were coming to test him.

I find it hilarious that TREK dropped him like a rock given that it has been argued that TREK (like so many others *cough* UCI International Cycling Union *cough*) are heavily implicated in assisting Armstrong to retaliate against people no longer under his control and avoid accountability all this time. Read LA Confidential - is all there and has been for years. I'd name Armstrong as sociopathic but I'm not sure sociopaths go to quite so much trouble to control people? Honest question.

Nothing that happens to Armstrong is a surprise now - has been a LONG time coming. What will be interesting is what UCI does about the USADA report. Clock is ticking - I believe they have a month so time is up in Nov. They've been bought by Armstrong and very stupidly did not see the writing on the wall when they stated that USADA is illegitimate. If they continue to claim this then they draw attention to their own complicity. My bet is that they'll accept the USADA report and cut Armstrong loose for good - out of pure self-preservation.

If the emphasis is on WINNING (and, of course, it is), then why not just make doping LEGAL? Every sport nowadays has its technological advancements in equipment -- titanium bats & tennis rackets, super-slippery swimsuits, etc., etc. The athletes, I'm sure, take vitamins and supplements in hopes of increasing the odds of achieving their ultimate goal -- WINNING. Why not just make doping legal? They could even have separate competition categories for dopers and non-dopers, so that those who don't want to fuck up their bodies with drugs don't have to.

I just read "The Secret Race" by Tylor Hamilton and Daniel Coyle, an absolutely brilliant book.

It outlines the whole "industry" of doping in cycling and how Armstrong didn't just dope (like everyone else) but he was the ringleader of the doping. He basically "obliged" the rest of his team to dope. His famous seven wins and, as r31 says, Livestrong "charity" were all about increasing his status and his power. He was also vindictive, aggressive and threatening to anyone he couldn't 100% manipulate. Armstrong has his fingers in a lot of pies and is involved in all sorts of strange, hidden dealings, interrelations, investments, with so many people in his pocket.

The UCI is also fully implicated in all this and was happy to allow Armstrong to dope and cover it up for him, as he fuelled their status and the "power" of the UCI's members too. They know pretty much everything and don't care because doping makes for more "astonishing" results. One of the few times in the past decade they have bothered to "out" a doper was Tylor Hamilton, because Lance Armstrong put them on to it.

by Anonymousreply 5210/21/2012

The documentary at r48 is also very revealing. It reminds us that not just the doping "rumours" but also sworn evidence about Armstrong and doping has been available for years, yet everyone in an institutional position of authority turned a blind eye to it. It shows how Armstrong's financial rewards were more than just sponsorship but insurance payouts - each successive year he won an insurance company would pay out double the initial fee: for the first year he was given 2.5 million dollars, the next year 5 million, etc. (I might have the actual figures wrong, but it's something like that).

The man whose face you see in the still is cycling commentator Phil Liggot, a big Armstrong acolyte. He apparently claimed that federal investigators paid people to lie and falsely accuse Armstrong. Liggot used to co-commentate with former cycling pro Phil Sherwin, who now runs a goldmine in Uganda which both Armstrong and Liggot have invested in.

So, Armstrong's doping and connections, the extent and nature of his relations with people in the "cycling industry" and the entire setup of professional cycling was not just arranged to get him to win and today to protect him, but so all these individuals could do "deals", make connections, increase their power, get "charities" such as Livestrong to pay to fly them around the world and stay in charming hotels. It's way more than just doping and cheating.

R46, we're not just talking the level of 23 or 25 million dollars here, but at least 100 million dollars. The money trail is a labyrinth.

The financial fallout begins:

Dallas-based sports insurer that paid Lance Armstrong $7.5 million for ’04 Tour de France win wants money back

Now that Lance Armstrong has been stripped of his seven Tour de France victories by the International Cycling Union, this latest bit of news should come as no surprise. But SCA Promotions, the LBJ Freeway-based sports-insurance company forced to pay Armstrong a $7.5-million bonus following his 2004 win, wants its money back. And if it’s not returned sooner than later, SCA will file suit against Armstrong.

“If the money’s not returned,” says SCA’s external counsel, attorney Jeffrey Tillotson, “the company will pursue all legal avenues to get it repaid.”

Earlier today BBC Sports reported that Armstrong had till October 29 to pay it back. Tillotson says, no, that’s not the case: “We just now got the UCI action, so we have not yet made a formal demand on him. We will. And if he doesn’t comply, the company will pursue all legal avenues.”

For those who don’t recall, SCA tried years ago to keep from paying Armstrong the bonus, claiming at the time the evidence was mighty strong that Armstrong wasn’t clean. As our Michael Grabell and Cathy Harasta reported at the time, what began as a contract dispute in 2004 “morphed into the closest thing to a trial of Lance Armstrong in the U.S., with Armstrong victorious.” In ’06 they reached a settlement, and SCA had to pay that bonus on behalf of Tailwind Sports, which owned the U.S. Postal Service team.

“We had a contract that said so long as he was the official winner, we were required to pay him the bonus,” says Tillotson. “We raised concerns about whether he was cheating, Mr. Armstrong’s legal team said, ‘Who cares, he’s the official winner,’ so we paid the bonus. They have now judged he’s no longer the winner, so we want to recoup our payment.”

Tillotson calls the decision to ask for the $7.5 million “a very bittersweet moment,” given the contentious battle over the money six years ago. But it had to happen, he says. Because “he’s no longer the official winner of anything.” SCA, he says, may issue a longer statement in coming days.

by Anonymousreply 7110/23/2012

That HoneyStinger Energy Food thing is part owned by Liestrong. So that must have been the last rat off the sinking ship.

Board meeting, awkward much?

Flame this asshole, Dan Empfield. Lance's boyhood friend. Official Lance Apologist.

Let him know I sent you there.

Want his private email address?

Cause this isn't over until every person LiveWrong/CheatStrong destroyed, extorted, lied to, all of is settled.

I am not a quitter.

LieStrong ran home with only 1 ball.

You should look into a Tig Notaro and the money she says she is donating to cancer. She says she was cured of stage 2 aggressive cancer in one month. No followup treatment. She's a strange case of con artistry. Great work with outing Lane Armstrong.

Thank you for the shout out,

Very kind of you. I was proud of myself for ruling countless comment boards dominated by his paid trolls, as well as Loonied4Lance.

Never quit never back done from the fight. LieStrong hates gays, just another reason why I despise him.

If anyone wants to support Dallas Drake's Center Fof Homicide Research, which trains Police Departments in how to work with LGBT youth, I have provided a link for donations to this good cause. That is also where I asked readers in The Internet War Against LieStrong to donate instead of to TheLanceAwarenessFoundation.

He also has a facebook page, you can donate to him there, too. He knows me, I sent him more money then he asked for when his funding had been drastically cut by the financial crisis.

Will put up that link as well.

Yes, LGBT youth are one of my endless causes. Hopeless do-gooder.

Facebook page of Center for Homicide Research.

When I was Leading The Internet War against LieStrong,I would ask people to support a better cause: Dallas Drake's Center For Homicide Research.

He knows me as I sent him more than he needed to keep going after the financial crisis came & his funding was dropping.

He does outreach to LGBT youth, as well as training Police Departments on how to handle cases involving LGBT youth with greater sensitivity.

Your endless do-gooder never quits.

Reissue the Tour de France Awards

Posted by Ted Rall on Monday, October 22, 2012 at 6:11 am

I don’t typically weigh in on sports, but the French agency that conducts the Tour de France has stripped Lance Armstrong of his seven Tour de France titles, and has decided to leave no winner listed for those years.

That is wrong.

The prize obviously should go to the runners up.

As a cartoonist and columnist, II am aware of the fact that several previous Pulitzer Prize winners are plagiarists and/or hacks whose malfeasance is so over-the-top that they should be stripped of their Pulitzers.

It was bad enough for the legitimate cartoonists who deserved to win to be passed up at the time. But clearly, when a prize is stripped from someone for cheating, that prize should be properly and reawarded to the honest professional who was passed up at the time. Not to do so is to pretend that the agency that issued the award had not made a mistake at the time, when in fact they did.

From TMZ

Lance Armstrong was spotted today, crying into a bag of money, while screaming, "Now I only have 24 million dollars," while thousands of beautiful women offered to sleep with him.

by Anonymousreply 9210/24/2012

I don't have time to read TMZ, sorry.

Was solving a child murder, dismemberment thing.

I'll try to keep up on LieStrong.

I did post on Outside Mag some more as my comments are very popular there.

I put up yummy photos for Dataloungers in my River Phoenix post, in response to questions as to Leo C's sexual orientation.

Here is what I was doing today, do check out photos in River Phoenix Post.

Here was my source if you just want to see the photos that are Leo C posed for when he was trying to get your attention.

As opposed to professional beards, aspiring models, starlets, etc.

1984 Olympic wrestler Jeff Blatnick just died, but Lance lives...

I get all my celebrity gossip from Michael K of DListed.

Not TMZ or Radar, children please.

CheatWrong/LiveStrong is wearing Asics now. Who cares?

Also P. Diddy was in car accident. Yawn.

Bert Fields, celebrity attorney is suing on behalf of CoS Father of The Year, Tom Cruise, noting that Tom doesn't file lawsuits, that is why he pays Bert Fields.

You made me look, that was awful.

What the fuck is going on in this thread?!

by Anonymousreply 9710/24/2012

@ Ted Rall, I don't follow you at all here. I have stated that Greg Lemond is the winner for calling LieStrong out along time ago. Have also stated that Trek owes him financial compensation for dropping him as a result.

What does that have to do with political cartoons? I only know 1 such animal, KAL, as my son went to elementary school with his kid & KAL got on my nerves, fast.

Gee, did you know he went to Harvard, yes, you mentioned that 3 times ago. And worked as street busker, that is so interesting, really. And also For The London Economist, you are very deep.

Ted you are a bit older yet part of the generation hip crowd defined by Dave Eggers/McSweeny et al. Hope shot you took at Pat Tillman was a whole lot of yucks. My life's dream was once to have a cartoon in The New Yorker, but dreams die hard.

My son was a protege of David Foster Wallace, who made up stuff all the time in his non-fiction pieces. The cruise ship bit was a marvel of things that could never have happened & he is still worshipped forever as the literary analogue to Kurt Cobain.

I have my own blog now, with over 1,000 unique page views a day. So it is my personal gallery display of my thought on social injustice, gender inequality, criminal profiling, have a look. Down below.

Don't let let the hater R88 influence you. Cancer warrior and acclaimed comic, Tig Notaro, really is sick and has turned her illnesses to art. I just watched her tape "Live" for the tenth time and it just gets better with every listen. Best money I ever spent. She beat cancer and doesn't need the stress of haters like R88.

You can now download Tig's tape on Itunes. AWESOME!

haters suck. Tig Rocks. Her tape was the best purchase I ever made. Support Tig Notaro you guys!

Back on topic, the ass just tweeted this yesterday. No shame at all.

He STILL hasn't come clean, has he?

by Anonymousreply 10211/11/2012

Sorry to be off topic. I just thought it fair that I protect Tig when she is attacked.

He's too busy spending the millions he already made and having sex with beautiful Olsen twins to be concerned what anyone here thinks.
