Not much really

I wouldn't agree.
When you say that he apologized because someone told him to do so, it means that he didn't feel he did anything wrong, and apologized just out of politeness.
But when you see he first apologized without anyone's advice, it means he wasn't sure that what he did was completely fair. Bjarne solved Contador's dilemma by telling him that he made mistake and should publicly apologize.

Would anyone here apologize for something he/she believes is completely fair?
I know I wouldn't. I wouldn't even think about it.

This is the stage 3 of that TdF edition. Did Andy apologize?

Angliru, I can assure you, that as one of the few left in the lurch after he left, I'm not sure he is welcomed back. We in the club (that is, Frank and I) have struggled on regardless. At best, he re-joins at junior level.

Airstream, prove you are truly back by publicly denouncing the demon that you have worshipped when you lost the faith, who goes by the name of Frooome and rides in the black, black of Sky. Redemption is just a step away my friend

First, if you want to involve yourself in discussion, you have to read all posts relevant to it. That's the only way to keep discussion sensible.
Second, did Andy have a reason to apologize? Was there a controversy in the case you're bringing up?

If Andy thinks that taking time on someone because of an accident is wrong then yes he should apologise for stage 3 and know his role and shut his mouth about stage 15.

Andy 'Charlatan' Schleck. Both him and his brother should follow their dad's advice and leave cycling. Cycling is a tough guy sport, which those 2 are not.Also Andy is the biggest hypocrite in pro-sports, period!

I'm sure you know it's not that simple.
Also, I'm sure you're aware that it's not Schleck who's talking all over again about stage 15.

Paradoxically, stage 15 is obsession of Contador's fans. They're the ones who react first on its mention, and it's necessarily derogatory.
Amusing need and way to maintain their beliefs in divine persona of their idol.

I did read the interview all right: while any journalist can pose any question he wants , Andy response is what qualifies him. does not take much to move on to a better topic if he want. As far as misrepresenting He was the one who put on an attack, vino responded with Conti on his wheel.. Andy messes up worse than a newbie as Alberto blast by leaving Andy where he stood. In the end I believe Contador did slow up or else Andy would never see him again on that stage.
