Well I can say that I've never used the words "troll" or "fanboy" to describe you or your posts but you conveniently neglect to mention your acid laced hatred of Contador and the depths to which you will go to express that disdain, such that it ultimately resulted in you getting a ban for consistently ignoring the forum rules. If you're going to give a history you need to give all sides not just the one that makes you appear to be the helpless victim.

I'm a fan and cheer for him sometimes (like at the Vuelta this year, I was hoping he would win), and sometimes there are other riders who I would rather see win so I don't cheer for him (like Tour 2010).

I appreciate your willingness to be objective despite rooting for Contador.

Victim? No thanks. I'm able to protect of the forum myself. Victims are those who start babbling 'aaah, i don't like it so it's trolling, ban them!'

As for Contador, I stand by my opinion. The man will pay for his sins entirely in the near future.

I logged my poll entry 1st....but I've been laughing so hard since I forgot to post.... Andy is six feet of wasted talent, he has no backbone or gumption to speak of. His PR engine should stop touting him as a GT great he is plainly not! Best.....there isn't a best

Yeah, but you also don't have to be a mathematical genius to figure out that if a huge percentage of the whole thinks one thing, then by definition a huge percentage of anyone voting anything, in any given poll still thinks that thing - however they vote.

So, while you're almost certainly right that a huge percentage of those voting never are Contador fanboys, equally a huge percentage of those voting 2013 or 2014 are also probably Contador fanboys.

Me? Voted 2014, and also a Alberto fanboy (in that Contador is my favourite rider to watch, as he's, ermmm, obviously the best).

This is the truest statement here. While Andy has so much talent, there are others that have done far more with less. As soon as he showed a glimpse of what he can do he appears to have turned into a prima donna and has been pampered. Now, having to come back from injuries he faces a task that he has never had to overcome. Does he have the mental toughness to do it? We'll see. But we know that Alberto has, Vino, Cadel and others have returned to the top after facing much adversity.
I am one of Andy's critics and voted he will never come back to consistent elite performances. I hope I am wrong because with him as a legit challenger things will be much more interesting. He's gotta man up.

And besides, Froome has repalced Andy as object of my scorn. Hahah. At least I am truthful
