Nice try.

don't hate the messenger. i think it sucks that donations could cease to come in but i had feeling it was inevitable.

The Livestrong Foundation should be reaching out and helping Floyd. After all he is a cancer.

Re: Livestrong Foundation in danger

It would be ashame about the organization and public opinion is huge in the success or failure of a nonprofit. But I think that even if past donors don't want to give to the Livestrong Foundation they probably have a vested interest in cancer research and will donate to the American Cancer Society or another big organization.

Not hating on the messenger. I'm just saying, "So what?" Who cares? Nobody's going to care, because everyone will just donate to another society.

Yes, it does suck that the Livestrong Foundation might bomb, because they are a positive organization. It's just unfortunate that the man behind it may be proven a cheat.

yoy keep saying "i don't care" or "know one is gonna care"...325 million dollars and hundreds of thousands of peoples lives directly or indirectly related to this particluar foundation is more than enough to prove that people already care and printing an article about something that no cares about in the Washington Post of all papers is nothing to not care about and that's not counting the athletes.

cyclists, much like those such as yourself who don't care, show up not caring on threads like this one stating that no one cares all the time.

Armstrong's money making cancer brand is small fry when it comes to charitable cancer organizations. The big ones raise many times more money in a single year than Armstrong has raised in ten years. Armstrong going down in flames won't affect cancer charity one bit.

Re: Livestrong Foundation in danger

GT, i wasn't trying to come off offensive but as the article states and is the case now and again when it comes to sports figures, their personal demise is what causes anything that comes crashing down that is directly related to them, in this case The Livestrong Foundation, that cause people to care. Lance is not just some guy who started a foundation, he's THE guy who started Livestrong, probably the biggest or at least most well known name in cancer research (funding) today.

it's not so much the money involved, or lack of it comparatively as Bro Deal just stated as yes, money will still go to cancer research elsewhere just as it had long before Livestrong, but the name behind it...and the scandal involved with that name.

time will tell, i guess. my two cents.

^ And here's the guy that acts like he's Lance Armstrong's bitter ex-lover.

Dude, all you do is post about what a dirtbag Lance is. Don't you ever get tired of it? I mean, really. We all know you hate Lance, and dare I say that I think you have a personal vendetta against the guy, like he did you wrong. Did he do you wrong, because I'm just curious.

I'm not being rude. Just saying...

As for Lance's foundation, the money will still be disbursed to where it needs to go.

I believed, much as in the same manner that people who follow politics and then are lied to by their own party, in what I thought was an honest man.


i have personally followed Lance since i started riding and in true to form quite the gung ho fashion and it's not gonna stop until i now see him in prison.

Oooookay, like that's normal. Good to see we're all amongst the company of a celebrity stalker.

No, I've never been on a bike before. I'm still learning how to ride.

I'd be willing to bet that you're the same type of person who would flip out if forums quit using post-counts. You are, aren't you...
