That looks to me like a fan-made trailer for a non existent film.

Last info I heard on this movie was years ago. I think it was shelved. If not, I imagine they're waiting for the last chapters to be written...

Lol, I wish it were that simple. The name of the movie should be :"Duped/Fraud", both certainly fit him. Hopefully, with a looming grand jury investigation decision right around the corner, he does "go away" for years. One could only hope.

The world does not need a Lance movie. Everyone knows his story inside and out.

Not sure he deserves that. He might be arrogant and narcissistic, but he has also been very friendly and approachable when I've run into him. Doped or not, he did come back from cancer that had spread to his brain and lungs. Just beating that is pretty amazing. Then to win the TDF 7 times in a row against heavily doped competition after surviving that is ridiculous. He also really cares about helping people fight cancer. Thats genuine.

WHAT IF...
The guy is so great and so humble that in fact he's really totally clean but paid people to Tarnish is reputation and get them to say they doped with him when actually no one did . All that because he was feeling bad about the other guys losing everytime against him.

What a great man! :O

It's raining right now and cool'ish. Not complaining about that either because of the darned drought. I'd be out riding in it but I'm stuck behind a desk. This is what I do when I should be working.

Why did you capitalize tarnish? Just seemed odd. The guy is no saint. At all. The hate and cynism just seemed like a bit much though is all.

And I'll repeat myself - we REALLY don't need a Lance Armstrong movie.

The envy and hate on the 41 continues to amaze and baffle me. If winning the TdF as many times as he has doesn't win any respect from you guys, what does? Really?

That's just cuz you don't know anything about pro cycling. It's okay, few do. Don't beat yourself up over it.

Exact same thing could be said about Lemond here, couldnt it? People give him **** all the time, but when its Lance, we're being too harsh? Cant have it both ways gang. Besides, he's kind of brought it on himself.(Armstrong).
