It is very funny to read how a modest guy came into the thread to express his opinion and he was instantly attacked by one's fans. One poster even tries on the role of police of ethics and reports to mods as soon as someone tells about doping and Contador (NOT just doping!). LOL, guys you should work on your equanimity and self-esteem otherwise it will end up very bad for you. Your arguments will never stop critics towards Contador and will not do it less reasonable. The man has got delinquencies. So no drama. It is just Contador and cycling forum.

so disagreeing with people who's (supposed) opinions one disagrees with is wrong.

But bringing up doping on a forum specifically designed for non doping discussions is perfectly ok?

Go create your own forum then, where disagreeing with people who don't like contador is not allowed but going on all day about contadors clenbuterol andhow he belongs in hell, is.

Until then play by the rules you agreed to when you signed up.

And i don't know who this wannabe policeman is ( or how you know what he reports) but i raise a glass to him and hope he continues to report you and your kind when you post your unwanted filth in the wrong forum.

It is called hounding. I know because I'm subjected to that since the first day on the forum. So I clearly understand this guy though he is apparently older and wiser than me and he could percieve your incursion quietly.

I consider Zubeldia a better than Contador rider too and what?

Maybe because you refuse to follow the rules???? Did that ever occur to you, Accepting Personal Responsibility????

Go to the clinic and have fun, your drug related opinions are welcome there and you'll find plenty of folks that Agree with you!

Reporting to the mods is really ... cowardice.
And on top of that, it's done anonymously.

Shall I ever report to the mods when I see a post that I don't appreciate? Sir, no Sir. Freedom for Christ's sake.

I don't know what to call this. I'm staggered. I mean, I'm feeling like in the old schoolyard when we reported to the teachers (or perhaps in 1942...).

Sad, very sad.


And no I don't like this omerta rule about doping but I tend to respect it whenever possible. However sometimes, it's impossible. Otherwise it seems like false pleading to me.

What do you call a rider who is on holiday from August to January?
