    I saw Mike J's post about the "ask Graham" section on the GW website and took a look, hoping to
    get some info on photography, instead it was a pure laughfest of Lance groupies, including this
    one who posted:

    Geoffrey L. Crosbie - 08/17/2003: The photo that you took showing Lance crashing on stage 15 in the
    Tour is great. Do you have a shot taken just before it, showing the bag hooked to his handle bars? I
    am a big fan of yours and of Lance and after the tour I was able to aquire the very bag on e-bay,
    that in my opinion won the tour for LA. I would like to have the bag and a photo framed together. Is
    this possible? Thank you for your help and I enjoy your work geoff

    The reply: Hi Geoff, seems like you have quite a souvenir with that bag! if you can send a message
    to the 'gw shop'/'prints' section of this site, someone will take care of your request... Are you
    sure that is THE bag? Or is someone playing with you...? I only have the shot taken as he fell, not
    when he got tangled in the bag...sorry! GW

    LOL!!! I wonder how many Lance groupies/dorks/suckers got ripped off by this eBayer? Damn, I wish I
    had thought of doing that.

    I was 100% sure that I bought the bag off ebay!

    What now?

    No.

    I wish I would have thought of getting ahold of a bunch of those bags and selling them all on eBay
    as *the* bag that took LA down. I've got no reservations about the lying which is inherant to the
    scheme. Any mark that would bid on such an item deserves what they get. If its not me ripping them
    off it will be someone else (for example the guy that's currently doing it).

    Thanks for the heads up on never dealing with you - you openly admit to want to rip people off
    because "someone else will do so eventually".

    I suppose you will kill people because eventually they will die anyways.

    You must be quite a scammer Boyd

    Asshole -

    Just because someone *can* be ripped off, doesn't mean they *should* be ripped off.

    You may as well be doing a Ponzi scheme, which is no different from an ethical perspective. Or
    selling bogus insurance to elderly people. Etc.

    In general, fooling people is funny, but not if the end result is stealing from them.

    Did I say this? No. I said anyone who would buy *that* particular item deserves what they get.

    We're stretching the analogy a bit now aren't we?

    > In general, fooling people is funny, but not if the end result is stealing from them.

    Its even funnier to fool gullible sports memorabilia collector dorks when you can "steal" from them
    in the process.

    BTW, is it really stealing if they are never the wiser? Both parties are satisfied, so who
    would complain?

    If there was a buck to be made doing it, there'd be a section on ebay for it.
