I think we have to face the fact that Livestrong is really a very minor player when it comes to assisting cancer 'victims' (what's with all this 'victim cr@p?, my wife is no victim, she is a freaking survivor like no other, disgusting) and does nothing or next to nothing in terms of research. Without him there would be an equal amount of charity money going to other cancer charities that may use that money to do other things than glorify a very troubled man's reputation. He does nothing to expand the pie. He does the opposite.Bill Murray said:I think we need to be above reproach if we are to critisize Armstrong for shameless behavior, otherwise we are no different to what we complain about. Livestrong do directly help people with cancer and their families. They may not have helped a relative of ours, but they do help cancer victims nonetheless. It's understandable that people in those charities are grateful, even though we see doping in the tour de france as a much more important.
In the big picture, Livestrong is irrelevant. How's that for above reproach?
