Lemond - HTFU

I realize his work with his sexually abused children is doing great work, but why can he not leave Armstrong alone? Say Armstrong and USPS and ASTANA doped, who really thinks that they will strip him of 7 tour wins? Lemond, you won yours, time to "can" the jealousy and HTFU. He won more than you.

He actually thinks that any wrongdoing by LA reflects badly on him, as well as the sport, because they're in the same sport.

Well, there's that, AND the whole great big green-monster envy thing........ LA couldn't possibly be better than him, so he MUST have doped........

I think you might mean STFU. The s is for shut, HTFU is for hurrying. Oh, I guess you can harden the %$#! up too, sure.

HTFU also means "Harden _ _ up", which might be appropriate if the OP thinks Lemond is whining.

It is a shame that there are so many chemicals around these days, including some (HGH) that can't be tested for.

not really. HTFU is an initialism. acronyms are words like nasa or radar or scuba.

All Lemond is going to accomplish is to make himself look even more of an a**.

Ya, Lemond is just jealous because some one eclipsed him. He once said that he could have one 6 or 7 Tours if he hadn't been shot. Sour grapes. He helped take down Landis for the same reason - jealousy.

Yes, he needs to STFU and just build his crappy spinning cycles.

Interesting that this is the standard answer anytime anyone tries to bring up doping in cycling: "he's jealous."

HTFU has recently come to stand for Harden the F**k up, but before that term was used in athletic type forums it could also stand for: Hush the F**k up. Similar in meaning to STFU.
