    Pol Pot is a better role model than Armstrong.

    Armstrong was never a role model except for marketing.

    I don't know who is the other guy. I don't care. *googles* Still don't care. Ha...

    It's a pretty cool story, check out this film if you can find it somewhere on the net.

    eta: maybe "cool" is the wrong word, it's a touching story anyway.

    He did survive cancer even though everyone told him he wouldn't. And the Livestrong Foundation isn't a bad thing either.


    People now act like he's the Hitler of Cycling. Calm down.

    What Armstrong did was shameful, and even illegal, but hardly the worst thing a sports figure has ever done, and cheating at sports ranks rather low in the list of things that make one a bad person, somewhere above not flushing the toilet in the locker room and below whacking your competition in the knees with a lead pipe.

    Works only for people who were naive enough to believe him.
    I disliked him before his cancer, it didn't change after.
    He's just another customer of Michele Ferrari anyway.

    This is also a Star Trek board. What did Captain Kirk, fictional inspiration for millions, do again back at the Academy days that was so cool? :devil:

    No idea, I'm not a Star Trek fan.

    Meh... in the sports world winning usually trumps ethics... if you want a role model in life, looking towards sports celebrities isn't it.
