Nike terminated the contract of Lance Armstrong this morning. The evidence continues to mount that Armstrong is the biggest cheat and fraud that sport has ever known. The statement from Nike.
“Due to the seemingly insurmountable evidence that Lance Armstrong participated in doping and misled Nike for more than a decade, it is with great sadness that we have terminated our contract with him. Nike does not condone the use of illegal performance enhancing drugs in any manner. Nike plans to continue support of the Livestrong initiatives created to unite, inspire and empower people affected by cancer.”
I am a huge cycling fan and have been since the early 80’s. I need to write more about this, but haven’t been able to put my thoughts together. I am beyond anger or any other emotion. I suppose I just don’t care. Did Lance Armstrong even have Cancer? Maybe that was a setup for the doping? I have a hard time believing anyone who almost died from Cancer would do this to themselves and others.
