    That is a really good point. Maybe they can get some of our Olympic athletes in there. They had an amazing run this last year.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they did pull it. There is nothing that remains of merit for him to be in the film. At least with Tiger one could make the argument that he's still there for sporting achievement because his reprehensible actions were in his personal life. A weak argument, but it could work. However, with Lance it was all a big fat lie. There's no longer any character, professional achievements or outstanding performance to applaud. There's nothing. He's a fraud, acted the whole time, lied about everything and no longer holds any titles. He's a guy who doped and rode a bike and bullied everyone around him into his version of reality.
    As you can guess, I'd like to see him gone. But hey..I'm Canadian so what do I know?:rotfl:

    Maybe when people start booing that portion they will remove it. I personally think it is an insult to other athletes that he remains.

    But also a fan of the mighty Piglet which says a lot. Armstrong needs to be gone. Stop exposing impressionable young children to that lowlife.

    I think about this every single time we visit this attraction--- there is absolutely no way that you can leave Lance Armstrong in the "AA" montage--- Now, he admitted that he cheated-- and sued people out of millions on top of it !!!

    DH and I were talking about this on Saturday when we were at Epcot. We heard other people mumbling about it as we were leaving the theater. I definitely think he needs to be pulled out of respect to the others who actually do deserve to be featured in the film.

    The Lance footage is right at the very end so it is very noticeable. The issue here is not that he did bad things, but that exactly the one thing he is known for (being a Tour de France champion) is a lie.

    The audience I saw it with did very much notice and comment on it.
