He opened his thoughts about this case between MJ's and Austin Police in the beginning of latest Move podcast (2020 Il Lombardia). I think his statement was very straightforward and proper. But it's just me, I see him as a man how knows that people know every single thing he's done and he's trying to go forward.

He's old dog with long grown habits, but still I kinda see that he's learn a bit, because no matter how brave face, he took a some big hits years gone by.
 
I did not say "very good things", I said "good things".
However, the things he have done for a big number of cancer patients over the years have been good. If you can't acknowledge that you have big problems with your bias.
AGAIN, What "good things did he do for cancer patients"? Livestrong was/is a complete sham, he embezzled/used millions of dollars of "donations" for his own personal use, Livestrong was a "cancer awareness charity", nothing more.

If you believe otherwise, that would be YOU with the unhealthy bias.

Even if it was just a “Cancer Awareness Charity” that is a good thing and was important to a lot of people. So even you believe he did good things for cancer patients all over the world, you’re just not mature enough to acknowledge it.:rolleyes:
 
I believe this forum has a rule that says that, if asked for evidence supporting serious claims, you're required to provide it. So, can we have the evidence for the embezzling of millions please?
its not really embezzling but
 
Why ask me? What do I care?
Ya cared enough to post the link. Do you think the views of a couple of dimwits who didn't read what Livestrong did and thought it was a research charity matter? Are they the sort of people you turn to for evidence? If their case had gone to court and a judge ruled on the matter you might have been posting something useful. As it is? What's the value of that contribution? It's not evidence, you said so yourself. What is it, exactly?

Lance spent countless hours - probably months worth of hours - visiting hospitals to spend time with children dying of cancer. I take it your stance is that it's only "good" if he cured the children? I think if you asked those children and their parents, they might disagree.

Maybe even provide an aircraft for global outreach.
Didn't this already get raised and when asked for evidence folk suddenly went silent? What is it about evidence that so many hereabouts have such a problem with?

To be clear, there was a Gulfstream owned by Mellow Johnny's and badged with Livestrong livery. This seems to confuse folk. And some folk like to use it to confuse others. What's it with you Oldermanish, a knave or a fool?

We're not talkin' bout that perfesser. This is about new monetization opportunities.
Name calling is not your strong suit. Is there a rule about lameness?

As a cancer survivor Livestrong was a good resource for me during and after treatment. They educated about the non-medical issues facing patients, their families, and those fortunate enough to be survivors. My medical team was fantastic in talking with us about my disease and treatment, but that's only part of the tremendous impact that cancer can have on those it afflicts. While most assume that survival leaves the patient happy and care free, for many that's simply not the case. For me, the survivor's guilt was almost crippling at times, and through Livetsrong's suggestion I became a mentor to cancer patients with a similar diagnosis to mine, answering questions about what's ahead for the patient, and just being a living example that you can survive and live a full life again. I'm sure the experiences with Livestrong vary as they do for any organization, but for me it was a very positive experience during some miserable years.

No, I never "believed" in him, him not doping, LiveWrong, or anything he's done.

But hey, Whatever works for you I guess.

He did so as a total fraud & a scam & it's obvious why? So believers like you wouldn't know the truth. His entire "Good guy" schtick was a total scam.

Funny thing is, his believers STILL drink the koolaid. I bet you think he needs to be forgiven? "Everyone else was doing it too, it was a level playing field", right? Too funny. :)
 
Your anger against him is also funny. If all you’re capable of is black or white, then I guess that’s how it goes this way.

Of course everyone trying to see anything positive is fanboys or believers. Whatever makes you sleep at night.
