So a lot of people say this represents the most serious threat to Armstrong's legacy -- date because it could strip him of his titles do you agree with that.
Yeah I do eventually he could lose his titles because the World Anti Doping Agency.
Along with the United States Anti Doping Agency.
Believe that he cheated he tarnished the sport and recycling.
Most all cycle us have cheated in the past -- would be almost the only cycle it's the most successful want to be clean but the key issue here.
As long as the Justice Department which recently dropped an investigation on him back in February as long as he is -- brought in front of congress.
Or brought in front of the Fed's where he would have to tell the truth.
Or lie on hold as long as that doesn't happen he'll be fine what does advertisers.
Well there's out of new information here I mean what we're hearing except that we've known for -- -- and still he was able to make twenty million dollars in sponsorships a year before last I don't know what his number was laster but he still making a lot of money in a time.
That we've heard these allegations before so.
It seems like it's not having an impact on his ability to -- Well it's because -- what he does for cancer and cancer survivors what he's -- what -- strong is amazing he's arguably one of the most important.
Athletes of the last hundred years because he is saving lives he is generating money through his charities and he's helping cancer survivors fight.

You know they're gonna get as many customers saying you know Lance Armstrong loves us -- like well you know he -- -- he jokes how much.
At how much of an asset is that 24 hour fitness is he worth last.
-- -- he might -- work a little bit less what everybody is oblivious when it comes to the sponsors.
The sponsors don't care they want to be associated with the champion Lance Armstrong and because of his relationship -- live strong if this ever goes down.
-- more slippery slope where he's in front of congress and people believe that he lied to the United States of America.
Then sponsors will drop -- look at Tiger Woods and how he survived what Nike and there's been other athletes who have been through difficult times in their key sponsors.
Have stuck behind him Lance Armstrong.
Delivers a demographic of winning sports fans wanna be associated with -- Because he's a winner and he does good for others and as long as he's not caught in a lie and lies under old.
