    A web of deceit……

    A CNN documentary on Lance Armstrong and deceit. This may change some minds on the subject. Turn on CNN now.

    Too depressing for me. So many people crap on a guy that has a foundation raising over 14 million dollars for cancer research.. and he is shunned. Meanwhile, those same people are excited to see than an NFL team re-signed a convict that shot himself in the leg. Doper or not, he did plenty of good in this world and should get at least a little respect...

    didn't even know the foundation did cancer research. Thought they were simply doing awareness.

    edit: googled and yup, little to no research.

    The CNN show was the abc story recycled from a month ago.

    The Livestrong Foundation awarded its first research grant in 1998. Though most of it did go to awareness (far too much).. they did dedicate some to research but this program no longer exists. My point still being this - He did positive things and made a difference.

    You are right though, I should have worded my original post as "awareness" not "research"...

    Yeah he did some good stuff, all while fcuking over people, stealing, lying, doping and decieving the entire cycling world. Lance is a punk.

    The dead horse is nothing but a bloody pile of hair and guts at this point.

    Affect Lance Armstrong had on my personal life = 0

    The weather forecast and running out of pancake mix has had more affect on my life as a bicycle rider than any of the Armstrong drama ever has.

    Really with all due respect mate, what the hell does his work with cancer got to do with him lying n cheating, why is it even bought into it, is it something that his last supporters cling onto like the old chestnut ''but they where all doing it''..
    Lance is out for himself, always will be always was, he wouldnt have done anything for cancer if he never got it himself, the blokes as sociopathic as you can get, and deserves every bit of bad press he gets..
    Look at him sitting back pretending nothings happened, not having the guts to face the charges in court, the guy is an Agrade grub.......

    I haven't been following the story but I did read this thread.

    A cancer awareness foundation??? WTF?

    If people are going to collect money from others, I'd rather see it go to research for finding a cure or better treatment methods, or just to help the families of cancer victims.

    I'll have to look into it before I comment more but just off the top of my head I'll guess that people are already aware of cancer. I know I am.



    Edit: Looks like they do a chopped down version of what these groups do.

    American Cancer Society | Information and Resources for Cancer: Breast, Colon, Lung, Prostate, Skin

    Canadian Cancer Society - Société canadienne du cancer

    Sorry Lance, my money goes to the Canadian Cancer Society.

    Took the GF and her two kids down to the Bay Area last weekend.
    Went to Fisherman's Wharf, and to the wax museum.
    Went through all the displays, everyone enjoying themselves.. even in the house of horrors type exhibit.

    All was right with the world until we rounded the corner and saw this figure...


    Kids were crying and clinging to their mother's legs, GF was making MammaBear noises and trying to get the gun out of her purse, I fell to my knees and threw up...

    Then we figured out it was only a wax dummy... DUH!
    Went on to enjoy the rest of the exhibit... got some real nice ones of Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini!


    Lance has never done anything to me... I don't really care about this whole ordeal other than one individual getting boiled in oil over doping instead of the whole dirty lot... rather amusing to see all the reactions though

    I wasn't sure if I should inform the guys out front about the NEW and DECONSTRUCTED Lance Armstrong... figured they had some amount of cash wrapped up in the current model and might not want to build a LANCE OF SHAME one instead.

    On second thought... maybe I should have crossed the barrier and RIPPED that yellow jersey off the dummy right then and there!
    One for the team!

    I never understood the whole "awareness" thing for causes. How does making someone aware of cancer help cure it? They should have put 90% of their funds towards research instead of what they were doing.

    Although "awareness" is part of Livestrong's mandate, they do other work to help cancer victims and their families. It's all redundant work being done by national organizations and in my opinion, all it does is divide scarce financial resources between several groups. Last year, Livestrong spent around 6 million dollars on administration and "fundraising".

    I'm sure the ACS or the CCS would have put the money to better use.

    I think if you went door-to-door and asked if people were aware of cancer, you wouldn't get too many folks saying "nope, never heard of it."

    I jumped off the bandwagon....

    For anyone interested keep an eye out on CNN. This show that prompted me to start this thread will surely be shown again. From the small portion I saw it brought forth actual testimony from team mates and his inner circle, of what he and many others were doing. It sucks he is getting the brunt of it but come on all those years of deceiving the world. Everybody thought he was superhuman for so many years. And many refused to believe these accusation's for so many years. I myself have been in denial until I witnessed just a portion of this CNN Documentary. Be sure to catch it if you can. It may open your eyes and change your mind.

    This is all I can post. The last time I commented in a Dopestrong thread I got a crapload of neg rep from low information Lance lovers. Not worth it.

    I suppose it'd be good enuf just to stake'em out and let them get a really NASTY SUNBURN! That'd teach'em all!!!



    Isn't it nice how easy it is to focus on one, or a very small few, of the nasties instead of actually cleaning up every amateur and professional sport IN THE WORLD?

    Hmmmm....
    -Eric Jacques (he got a whole 10 MINUTES added to his time in the 1976 Vuelta a España! That sure got the attention of Pro Cyclists everywhere! )
    -Floyd Landis
    -Jose Conseco... CANSECO... thanks for catching me on this!
    -Marion Jones
    -Bill Romanowski
    -Paul Doherty
    -Eastern Block Olympic women..no men...no uh wo/men?(actually this is a pretty large group of UGDCE (undetermined gender due to chemical enhancement) athletes and so might not be the best example for my list)

    Yep... the list grows fast in SINGLE DIGITS folks!
    The message is clear! WE'RE COMING TO GET YOU!... but not ALL of you...

    Well, the guy who has had and recovered from cancer on this board, Natehawk, said that Livestrong did a lot to help out with his situation. It seems like he's gotten quite tired of having to explain this to every and anyone who comes along claiming based on the "word" that it's not helping people. Basically filling in the gaps apart from "just the medical stuff", like family coping, help with day to day stuff, etc...Did you actually look this up first, or did you just respond to the dictionary definition of "awareness"?

    I'm with you there.. and I suppose I made the impression that I support him, but I don't. Obviously there is a certain lever of shadyness that has always surrounded Livestrong. I also agree that he wouldn't have given a damn about cancer awareness if he himself hadn't suffered. Though a lot of the money went into the pockets of some shiesty individuals (Lance included), my point was that SOMEWHERE along the line positive and honest experiences exist.

    LOL, a GRUB is generally a fly, moth, or insect larvae that lives in rotton wood, fruit, dirt, s**t, etc, usually at ground level but not always, a grub is generally dirty and eats anything dead or dying to survive and turn into its adult form.

    Agrade is top of the class, or gets extra points for being a grub in its true definition lol..

    So lance in Ozzy terms is an Agrade Grub lol..

    And as i didnt make the cAnseco comment i'll leave that for the poster who did to reply...

    I looked it up and I agree with the-one-1.
    Of the $42 million Livestrong raised last year, $2 million went to administration, $4 million went to "fundraising" and $29 million went towards their programs. One of which is "cancer awareness". The other $5 million? Who knows? I'm sure they have an accounting of it but they didn't explain it well on their website.

    This is all money that didn't go to the American Cancer Society which also has similar programs AND they fund research.

    I don't know how many more foundations there are like Livestrong but I'd rather see the money they all spend on administration, "fundraising" and "awareness" go to one organization (the ACS or the CCS) to help fund research and provide help for victims and families.

    For the record, there are many people on this board who have, or have had cancer. There are also Type1 diabetics, a guaranteed fatal disease (my son is one) and people who suffer from all kinds of other ailments. My money goes to the JDRF (diabetes) BECAUSE they are working to cure the disease. I don't want them to spend my money on "awareness".

    I want them to cure my son.

    That sir, is a very good question. I hadn't thought that they were donating to the name rather than the cause.

    Even so, a celebrity could solicit donations for their cause of choice and then donate all funds to the appropriate organization and I'd still get my ideal charity scenario where more funds go to research.

    I didn't give the organization a dime until I got cancer and they did some things for me.

    They paid for me to attend a survivorship retreat where I got to interact with others close to my age who also had cancer. It was the first time I could relate to other survivors really well. We had seminars on different strategies to move on with our lives and they gave us a forum to share with each other different things we had all found that helped us. Everybody had something different.

    There really is a need to help survivors navigate the types of assistance that's out there. They helped me learn that the ACS will provide assistance for travel costs to the hospital (mine was over 3 hours away from me and I had to get hotel rooms and food on a regular basis). They helped me find out about multiple fitness options geared towards survivors that I really needed.

    No organization can do everything. Livestrong tried to help fill gaps in care, especially with survivor care. A lot of the awareness stuff was for global efforts to help survivors in other countries where cancer carries a large negative stigma. Nobody in this discussion comes from one of those places, so I think you can stop with the derision towards the organization about that issue.

    If research is what you care about that's fine but the research doesn't address what survivors have to deal with when the doctor tells them to go home. Doctors are not known for providing that kind of help.

    Does that change what Lance did WRT cheating and lying? No. Lance did not do himself or Livestrong any favors in doing that, though both did reap short term rewards while the lie held. Livestrong's books should be investigated because Lance may have extended his shady cheating ways outside of cycling. I think there is good reason to suspect it.

    am I angry about any of this? No. I am disappointed that Lance's lie has cheapened how people think of supporting cancer survivors. Awareness is not a bullsh!t cause. A cancer organization is not worthless because they have chosen not to fund research. Research is expensive and it has many fruitless paths before you find any promise. It has a low bang for the buck and you need to spend a lot to make a difference. And that difference has a long latency. It may be years before the research your dollars helped fund helps anyone. It may not even happen in your lifetime.

    When you look at helping survivors and their emotional and mental wellbeing, and their physical fitness, your dollars help them in the here and now. There are many organizations that provide this kind of help in a lot of ways. Are they pointless, too, because they don't fund research?

    Is it wrong to help sick and dying people have some positive experiences? Is it wrong to help cancer survivors cope with how their lives have changed? Is it wrong to help people in third world and developing countries who have survived cancer escape the negative stigma associated with the disease in those places by promoting awareness?

    Glad you got help from Tone on the Grub thing

    Thanks for the headsup on my mistake with JOSE's name
    I fixed it.. although considering the topic and the reason I put his name in my post at all... CON might be a better fit than CAN.. just saying

    AND... on a serious note...

    Thanks Nate for the personal experience and info... learned something today!

    And...

    ....Lance's peers were doping too....
    .....and.....they are still doping today.

    What's the difference? What's the gain? Those good today who have connections will break the rules. When they lose their connections they lose their untouchable status and then they are called dopers.

    ^ Yep!

    Want to end Doping FOREVER?

    Lock up all possible ingredients for synthesizing drugs, and then...

    LOCK UP ALL THE DAMN CHEMISTS!
    Bwahahahahaha

    Once we started teaching chemistry to anyone we opened up a Pandora's Box for sure!

    I think there should be two categories in sports... doped and no-doped.
    This won't solve issues of the dopers trying to sneak into the no-doped areas when they feel it's worth the risk, but at least there won't be all this wasted time and money trying to catch, control, crucify, anyone who just absolutely HAS to dope.

    Then... piss-test and blood test EVERY SINGLE DAMN ATHELETE from High School UP!

    Just do that damn testing... on everyone... no random crap. Provide your sample on race day. If you test positive, then you go through a process of them proving and you defending.
    Proven guilty... loss of winning and removed from the record book for that event.

    Hmmm... this is going on too long... got better things to do this morning...

It sucks he is getting the brunt of it but come on all those years of deceiving the world. Everybody thought he was superhuman for so many years. And many refused to believe these accusation's for so many years. I myself have been in denial until I witnessed just a portion of this CNN Documentary. Be sure to catch it if you can. It may open your eyes and change your mind.
    Or you could also read the volumes of evidence released by USADA.

    I'm not even a Lance lover. I'm not even a lover of road bike racing. I just think that if they are going to do that, then they should treat everyone the same. I'm actually against any type of doping. I'm just looking for equality. They should test every rider before every stage in a race like the Tour, and deal with it in a reasonable amount of time, instead of years later.

    If these doping agencies were really good at their job, their wouldn't be a doping problem.

    SHawn first of all thats like saying if the cops were doing their job there would be no crime, its never going to happen mate, it works the other way round.
    Secondly, sometimes it takes years to get a case together, it takes years for witnesses to come forward and things to come to light.
    Thirdly the dopers in most cases are light years ahead of the testers, always have been always will be.
    With all due respect Shawn your quotes above suggest to me that you are not up to date with how things work and the realities of doping in sport.

    Its ignorant to think just lance has been targeted, infact 21 out of the last 26 top place getters in the tour have been found guilty of drug use..
    so infact its not a witch hunt at all, it took them a while with lance, but they nailed him and nailed him good, id commend that instead of calling it a witch hunt mate.

    The biggest long term cheat and liar has been caught and so have many of the others, if thats your idea of a witch hunt i find that pretty funny.
    Cheers mate
