This is a bit harsh, really. Nobody deserves to be the **** of jokes on Late Night TV.

I'd rather Lance was just held in contempt/treated as an irrelevant person than continuing to bring him attention.

Wow.. from untouchable to a punchline in a couple of years.

He misread the cards a couple of years back...

Agreed, this seems to be the biggest Hero to zero case I can remember.

The quote in the OP about only 12 people believing he was innocent seems off.

There seemed to be a huge change in the way Steve Jobs was discussed soon after he died, once he couldn't control his own PR but not on the same scale as this.

The comeback.

Short gain for long term pain.

Greed will do it to you every time.

Are you being serious here? You can't be.....after all the bullying, threats, lawsuits, etc etc this man has done to others to prop up his inflated(now fraudulent) ego and life and there are STILL Lance apologists and those who feel sorry for him? unreal.


NOBODY DESERVES to have been on the receiving end of all the things Wonderboy has done to others. That trumps any late night jokes about a guy who brought it all on himself. Pardon me for not feeling sorry for Wonderboy, I'm truely shocked anyone still does feel bad for him. The old saying " you reap what you sow" comes into play here.

I'm no apologist, I quite dislike Lance and I'm glad his world is unravelling.

But being made fun of by slack-jawed idiots on Late Night TV for cheap laughs crosses a line for me, personally, on acceptable levels of 'karma'.
