so today i spoke with one of the CMs here at AA and during the refurbishment they are getting new projectors and a new ending video. She didn't know what was going to change. Other than that she suggested some of the show elements could have some maintenance performed.
Indeed...

The idea is (as well a huge leap in overall SQ) the finale will be easily updatable.
Nah, pretty sure that is the digital conversion. (Or did that already happen when I wasn't paying attention?)
Certainly Lance and Tiger have to go.

When will the refurb take place?

OK, I can understand Lance... but, why Tiger. Because he had affairs? If you went by that there would be no one in show at all.
Yeah, because he had affairs. This isn't me being a prude and saying he can't have multiple consensual relationships. He was lying to one person about being monogamous while having all those other relationships. Liar, liar. And there's a DUI.

I know some sports stars like to say, "I'm no model", to take the heat of them for when they behave badly. But then, don't do endorsements or sign autographs. If you put yourself out there as if you were a model to follow, then either be one or get out of the spotlight. And if a person ain't one, then they shouldn't get a spotlight.

I despise cheaters. He could be on fire and I'd drink the bucket of water before I throw it on him to put it out.
So, using your logic...all the following should be cut from the show, or at least re-worked to prostrate themselves for the morality police.

The Thomas Jefferson scene with Ben Franklin, gone (he cheated on his wife)
FDR's radio scenes and his animatronic, gone (he cheated on his wife)

And then we get into Golden Dreams:

JFK's speech portion, gone (he cheated on his wife)
MLK's speech portion, gone (he cheated on his wife)
Billie Jean King, gone (bet you don't even know who she is, and that she cheated on her husband in a lesbian relationship with her hairdresser)
Bill Clinton, gone (he...hahahhaa, well...see a pattern?)
Muhammad Ali, gone (and yep, over and over again)

Well, whom would you suggest should take their places?

Any evidence to back that or are just rambling on like you always do?

OK, noted but IMO still the greatest cyclists alive. Should not have caved, nothing was ever proved but a few said they saw.
I think he belongs for two reasons:

1) He was an excellent cyclist
2) His inspirational impact on society through his cancer initiatives

I mean, come on...everyone for a few years was virtue signalling with their WWLanceD yellow rubber bracelets they got at the local gas station. That was AMAZING! And the licensing for merchandise alone!

I wonder, though...how much of the foundation money earned made it into actual cancer research and aid?

Oh...a LOT of it.

And, that is highly respectable.

No matter if they're controversial or not there are better heroes that should be in their place (I.e. Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Elon Musk etc.)

I'd agree with Gates, perhaps. He had a bad habit of stealing work.

Along the same lines, I'm shocked that Saint Jobs isn't up there...even though he was a terrible person by most accounts.

Musk, maybe. Lets see how his legacy plays out.

Buffett? Heh, he is a sheer opportunist. Nice guy, down to earth guy, I like him a lot, but a "hero"? Not really.

I think itd cover wider bases. Someone who might not be a hero to you might be someone else's hero. I admire Buffet a lot. Musk less so. Gates I think is a great businessman and admire him a lot too.
