Armstrong already stepped down from Livestrong in 2012, and they officially removed his name from their organization's title as well

Does he still do anything for the organization?

IMO his good deeds outweigh his bad deeds.

It's subjective so you can disagree all you want, but I'm not going to paint a man who has done as much in a bad light.

I think people are giving too much credit to Lance for the 'good things' he has done. The real good came from those that donated their money and time for the foundation. The biggest thing Lance did was donate his name. And as it turns out that name was built on cheating and dishonesty.

Skimmed through the first few pages. I see a lot of people saying his good outweighs the bad, but consider this:

By doping and being a ringleader in the cycling doping system, think about how many carriers of honest cyclists he has destroyed. Because they didn't want to dope, they could not compete and therefore never achieved the fame and wealth that they would have had Lance not been such a cheater.

There are reports that Lance Armstrong lied during the Oprah interview. He say the last time he used doping in racing was in 2005.

Investigators believed he used doping in the 2009 race. He may have lied to prevent being prosecuted since the 7 year statute of limitation goes back to 2005.

So another lie on top of a pile of lies? Can you really believe anything he says?

How come Lance was never busted for cheating in the first place? Does the Tour de France have poor drug testing methods? When you see how successful some American athletes are then you realize they're cheating: Armstrong, some of the MLB's biggest stars, undoubtedly some NFL players. It makes you wonder who else is cheating and how bad the issue really is getting. Of course you don't like to play the accusation cards without evidence, but when you see someone like Michael Phelps dominate in the Olympics year after year, it makes you wonder if he too is cheating.

Library prank sends Armstrong books to fiction section

Reuters – 23 hrs ago

http://news.yahoo.com/library-prank-sends-armstrong-books-fiction-section-031606719--spt.html

SYDNEY (Reuters) - A prank note in an Australian library declaring that disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong's books would be moved to the fiction section has gone viral on the Internet, with one commentator declaring: "Hell hath no fury like a librarian".

"All Non-Fiction Lance Armstrong Books, including 'Lance Armstrong - Images of a Champion', 'The Lance Armstrong Performance Program and 'Lance Armstrong: World's Greatest Champion,' will soon be moved to the fiction section," read the sign posted at Sydney's Manly Library on Saturday.

A photograph of the sign posted on the Internet quickly sparked heated debate over whether Armstrong's fight against cancer and motivation of people outweighed his drug cheating in a sport rife with doping.

"As a cyclist the guy's work was inspiring, his foundation do amazing work and his story was great. ... You feel embarrassed for recommending his book to people, you stare at the books on the shelf questioning if the lessons and the inspiration is honest and real," said one commentator.

Manly Library said the printed notice, which was placed in a plastic stand on a bookshelf in the library, was a prank and that an internal review was underway.

"Libraries can't arbitrarily reclassify categories of books, because that depends on the ISBN number that is issued by the National Library," a spokesman at Manly Council, which runs the library, said on Monday.
