Lance would destroy the careers of people who dared to even imply he was cheating. He viciously protected copyright of his term "Livestrong". He was a bully.

Funny how the bully now has no more fight left in him. He did a lot of good for cancer research, and you can't deny that. I've read on a lot of forums today inspirational stories of people he has inspired. In that aspect, he was a great man. But he was also a vindictive and bitter individual who frequently denied allegations and destroyed reputations of those challenging his assertions. He made threats whenever people would even imply he was cheating, and they had to back off. For a guy who had so much zeal in destroying and verbally abusing those who dared to question his accomplishments, he feebly rode off into the sunset, today, his legacy in question.

ChChChChimo, it's well known everyone was cheating. But no one was as adamant at innocence as Armstrong. Nobody. That's why it's so surprising that he just gave up.
