What are you talking about. If Lance is "taking up your life" you need to get a new one cause the old one is twisted.

I am replying to why I still respond to the "Lance news" on here. I have a life.
but I am wondering who you are to say "my old life is twisted"..

In case you don't remember there is a rule here to not attack the poster

You are the one cultivating a circle of people to acquire pics of Armstrong partying topless or whatever else he is doing that has nothing at to do with doping. Aside from having a lot in common with crazies who stalk celebrities, it is not that far off. That is how these thing start.

Lance the old creepy guy partying with HS sophomores...he's the gift that keeps on giving.

One of the kids will get drunk and wanna fight him; what's Lance gonna say? "I'm a lover not a fighter"?

Aw, give him a break. It's probably really hard for him to cultivate friends who are shorter than him.
 
Well it used to be fair game to post pics of Armstrong in the Armstrong thread.

His doping and control of everyone and everything US cycling-related has made him a subject of a lot of litigation. The fact that the litigation still is going on and that a pic of him partying like an idiot with high school kids has surfaced (and no I don't think RR is responsible for 'trying to acquire this type of pic") seems to me to be something of note.

it is unreal that he is shimmying around topless with googly-eyed teens while trying to convince the court that USPS should have known about his drug use...maybe he is trying to hammer home a point..

And this.

Anybody would delete that post Brodeal. You can't compare posting a picture of Armstrong to pedophilia. So drop the personal attacks/insults.

Fair enough I apologize. My point is Lance is yesterdays news, he does not deserve any good people to wring their hands about how ******y he is.

IMO the correct response is Lance who?

And the photo looks totally "shopped" to me.

Let's be very clear here. Aside from RR's usual self-serving spin, I never compared posting pics of Armstrong to pedophilia. I said that being in a group of Internet stalkers who trade links of half naked pics of a celebrity is creepy and it is A FEW STEPS AWAY from operating like a porn trading ring. Maybe you think that is normal behavior for a fifty year old dude, but come on!

Really. You mods are always going off on people for off topic posting. Pics of Armstrong partying has what to do with doping? Is that not more suited for posting on Perez Hilton's gossip site?

Talking about pedophelia is kinda like using the "N-word;" it so inflames people that the point gets lost and everyone just focuses on that word.

Your point about being 'Perez Hilton-y' is a decent one. Too bad you upstaged a fair point by bringing pedophelia into things.

Wow.
A big double LOLZ...
1.) Thanks RR for posting the pic. I would have missed it, if there wasn´t the 3-way-war going on here (between mods & posters about bans)
2.) BroDeal & Digger of all complaining about you posting this pic.
It can´t get better than this.

Thanks again.

BTW, my 2 cents: When it was fair game for LA to spit on everybody, yikes he insulted a whole country back in the days... it´s fair game to hit back from every angle.

Go on RR. You are much appreciated. Greetings from Germany. :)

I am hesitant to intervene in the petty bickering that seems to have taken over these forums, but you hit on the key reason why the haters remain motivated.

It isn't about the doping! It is about all the rest - willfully destroying detractor's lives, using cancer to finance an ostentatious lifestyle, relentless need for attention....

A picture of a half-naked Lance partying with teenagers begs mockery. If he can't refrain from putting himself in this type of situation at the same time he is attempting to maintain his public presence and obtain forgiveness, then he is fair game.

The fact that Armstrong is the poster boy for doping, past and present, is nobody's fault but his own.

When he disappears, so will the haters. Simple as that.
