Lance Armstrong is as tarnished as an athlete can be, having come out and admitted that he doped before and during his run at seven straight Tour de France victories. Still, despite severing ties with the cyclist last year, Nike indicated that it wouldn't rule out sponsoring Armstrong again.

"Never say never," said CEO Phil Knight, before adding, “We don't have any plans.”

Nike famously stood by Tiger Woods, despite the beating the golfer's public image took with the revelation of multiple extramarital affairs.
