ANyway that is nothing compared to the notorious mindblowing stupidity of people like anthony tan and brendan gallackar.
How were you able to listen to him if he was on SBS?

I do agree that the guy is seriously frustrating. Another one of his great comments was stating that the reason the Schlecks did not win the 2011 Tour de France was because they were not "malleable enough". I was crying with laughter after that comment.

At the same time, with the route of the 2009 Tour it wouldn't have been too surprising. I think Sean Kelly also had a chaque Cancellara might have done a good GC that year.
You're quite bad at picking up sarcasm, I must say.

Phil Liggett was the worst for always talking about Armstrong....which should hopefully stop now. But here is a classic case of Phil pumping Armstrong and bagging out others, in this case Contador. It was taken from the stage 3 pre-race Versus show from the 2010 Tour de France, where they talk about the riders and how they'll go on the cobble stage. I edited it into a nice little video for everyone

You have to factor all that in when figuring out which one is the most talented

He could, if he focused on that.

This one is hilarious:
"Deze kasseien zijn strakker gelegd dan verderop, daar heeft Napoleon ze nog zelf gelegd. Zó vanuit een helikopter!!"
(These cobblestones are much better placed than the ones further up the road. There, Napoleon himself placed the cobblestones. Throwing them out of the helicopter.)

Ducrot is cool. He's just very annoying next to Herbert Dijkstra (i.e. always).

definitely not, as he can't ride for sh*t in the peloton and simply doesn't like it at all either. these are his own words...
