$125m. Wow, that is a lot more than I expected. They really need to hit him in the pocket any way they can.

not sure what i'd rather want, him to have to give back his money or see him on the witness stand.

Seems LAF \ Livestrong aren't in the top 400 charities anymore in the US according the CN. Not sure what the means in terms of monetary figures

I did think that Livestrong and Armstrong would largely get away with this (in everything that was important to him) but these last few days I'm changing my mind! What surprises me more is that he's deliberately antagonising people by doing things like posting that image.

Sometimes I do admire Armstrong's brass neck.


He's certainly got balls...


Looking at this picture, I actually feel sorry for the guy. What a sad act he really is.

It's all a bit Citizen Kane. Do you think he calls them Rosebud?

I was thinking about how antagonistic he's been over the last few days, he has been egging on some American red neck to have a go at the Lemonds and stuff as well. It's like the mask has slipped. Maybe he knows it really is the end now.

Thats not a picture done by the Missus with her iPhone either. I think it's a pro shot. wide angle lens, lighting etc.. which makes it that little more "in yer face".

My guess is not a pro shot - too much noise - and that he has that lighting installed anyway (though that's hardly less in your face!). Looks like a panorama rather than a straight wideangle shot (even smartphone apps can do this now).

Probably depend on who's running it and how they do it. It's a cancer charity and many, many, people are affected by the disease so I would guess it will do OK. Cancer would seem to be the needed focus, not LA and PED's. That's small potatoes compared to the ravages cancer victims face.


Dennis I read it is not now ranked in the top 400 charities anymore. I wouldn't be annoyed if it carried on as the cause is good..but I think a re-branding is needed..moving away from yellow and taking the jerseys away. It's an organisation which helps I guess. Also, it's funny to see the cycling and wider media only reporting today Nov 13th that Lance isn't on the board of directors anymore..I posted that on Nov 9th. :lol:

In America he'll have plenty of support left, cos a lot of Lance supporters don't want to listen, a lot of them believe the man is good. In America where he's an a-list celebrity, the sheer profile of the man and the soundbites about cancer are enough for the masses surely. So its no surprise that people sound positive on fb, plus the fact that fb really works on positivity in general?

I remember seeing a survey of Americans, just a few 1000 or something, and it was taken around the time of the first week of the second Iraq war. Over half of them in the survey thought Saddam Hussein was 'personally involved in 9/11'. hmmmmmmm. Perhaps the same people surveyed knew a lot more about a-list Celebrities, Id rather they knew more about why their country was going to war though.

Photo is a marketing stunt for his new investment (Mobili or whatever)

And it worked by the looks of things.
