FYI, Armstrong (along with his agent and Bruyneel I believe) is a part owner of Tailwind Sports.

Armstrong has huge endorsement income due to winning the Tour. Should he split that with his teammates too? Get real. Where do you people come up with this stuff? Next LJF will chime back in saying Armstrong should give it all to cancer research. Wouldn't that be cool? :-)

Armstrong reportedly has not seen his father since he was little. Yet Armstrong wouldn't be here if not for that man. Should Armstrong cut the man a check?

Actually, the sport would be nothing, ditto for Armstrong's endorsement income, if not for us fans. So maybe he should give all his money to us?

Btw, as Pugdog points out, Armstrong gives his Tour winnings to his teammates.
