Nike CEO

We're NOT Calling It Quits

On Lance Armstrong

Nike
might reunite with Lance Armstrong after all ... despite terminating its contract with the disgraced cyclist last year -- so says the Nike CEO Phil Knight

Phil was out in DC yesterday when we asked if Lance and Nike might patch things up after the cyclist admitted to using PEDs -- and Phil responded, "Never say never."

You'll recall, Nike dropped Lance back in October, saying, "Due to the seemingly insurmountable evidence that Lance Armstrong participated in doping and misled Nike for more than a decade, it is with great sadness that we have terminated our contract with him."

As for whether Phil plans to watch Oprah's interview with Lance ... you get three guesses.

This old feller is either arrogant, ignorant or both. When a company holds onto it's marketeers even when they crashed and burned, he needs to have his leadership challenged or his head examined.

Time to change his title to Chairman Emeritus.

Nike, you don't cut all ties w/Lance Armstrong, I will never buy another pair of your shoes! And I'm sure there are alot of others who feel the same way about this lying, cheating, vindictive person. He's a s***bag and does he think we will accept his so-called apology? Apparently he thinks we're stupid. No to Lance Armstrong!

If I see one Nike commercial with Armstrong in it I will burn my 3 pairs of Nikes and send the ashes to them.

Nike is about as decent as Lance. Child slave laborers who pimp out themselves to low life athletes.

I will never buy another Nike product again -- just knowing that they are even considering taking back that s***bag makes me mad.
