He raised a middle finger. We've all done it, I'm sure lots of other pro cyclists have used their middle finger, why is Brad so special that we need a whole topic going on for a week of people slagging him off?

Are people actually offended because he gave the middle finger? Seriously??? I dislike Wiggins as much as the next guy but I'm glad he flipped off the paparazzi, they deserve it. The political correctness now days is way over the top.

It's the off season, there's not much else to talk about. And after this season Wiggins is more in the public eye than most other pros so when he does something like this it is only natural there will be a lot of discussion on it.

nobody is offended. just how childish can you be to raise a middle finger. if you want to be politically incorrect give them a good knocking, however with those stick arms and legs of his, he'd probably get caught by the wind

Asking for autographs is similar to taking a photo--it's simply a reminder that you were there.
I was reminded of that while attending this years' race in Montreal, when a friend asked for an autograph of a rider two days after joking about the absurdity of autograph seekers.
She simply got caught up in the spectacle.
