If Wiggins goes under the bus it will be collateral damage: Brailsford is Froome's target.



LOL how's that working out?

Vengeance.

Pay back for the perceived slights of 2012. For Sir Brad getting the epic win when 'he should have'. For SBW garnering more of the public affection. For all the **** between respective wives.

But I don't think Froome is the guy for the explicit 'bus-throwing'. I think he is the guy for the snide side-swipe and passive-aggressive undermining of SBW and Brailsford, which probably won't be enough to derail the bus.

If there is any bus-throwing, I think it'll come from someone either more volatile in a kind of semi-impulsive, 'scorched earth' purge of bitterness (e.g SBW or Sutton), or someone significantly more lowly, who may well gain much more than they lose (i.e. minor team-member, slighted rider, soigneur or similar who has seen some 'goings on'.) Or perhaps even from a Dr, who already has a substantial amount of money, and perhaps would relish the notoriety of being at a centre of a media storm.



the term is 'busthrowundery', a portmanteau neologism Dear Wiggo coined, not bus throwing, it aint a caber toss in scottish highlands innit.

time for a Western Great Purge I reckon. Empire Crew turning on themselves, garrotting gollum in the night, sino style.

be stupid tho, too risky. Froome knows he prolly retires with 50million GBP, close to 100million US$ if he plays it right, and holds his cards close to his chest. If he blows things up, he puts everything at risk. Well, atleast a significant proportion of that, he may keep a third or a quarter...

How much of his wealth is determined by Sky staying in the sport for a few more years? Not it all, he could always go where Nibali and Sagan have ended up, on similar big money deals. But if he does not have the protection in Aigle(UCI hq) and Manchester British Cycling hq, it will restrict his potential to get his golden handshake like everyone else has.

Aint the problem that Kennaugh and G have seen the beneficence displayed upon Wigans, Froome, and other knights, on Cav... and they are queuing up for their payday, like an EPL footballer, they want their GBP so they can afford a luxury pad in London.

Does Froome have a knighthood? I didn't think he did yet.

Also, for the Brits- does Froome have endorsement deals/advertising? I know Wiggo has had lots of deals for all kinds of things, but don't really have the impression of seeing Froome in ads for products. I don't read the bike mags like I used to though, so very well could have missed those things.

Oh, I agree, it would be stupid, but vengeance isn't driven by logic, and people can be crazily self-destructive to bring someone else down.

But I don't think he'll do it, as I said in my post. I wouldn't be surprised if he, Cound or some of his entourage tried something more subtle and sneaky though ,and it back-fired and brought the whole damn house down..

Just hearing the news on Mr Dawgitty and his climb down. What a wet streak of...beep beep! Why bother making his 'stand' in the first place if he climbs down so easily.
Could've just said from the start ''I support Gollum in his winning record blah blah but I don't support him with Jiffy-gate''. Situation neutralized. Gollum already acknowledged he'd made a balls of it.

Narcissists the lot of 'em.
(Apart from Geeee obviously, he's a lovely lad).

I expect Michelle will be using Instagram more than Twitter to humanize/normalize Froome from now on. Why? Because it looks like when you block people there, their comments get removed from your posts and don't stick aroundfirvotgers to see.

All I did was compliment him on his ballsy decision to move to high-rent Monaco in March 2011 on domestique money with his career going nowhere. Don't know if it was that or asking how Dr. Bermon is doing that did it. Cute appearance at Paris-Nice.

The odds that Sky will claim it happened to try and manufacture fake sympathy, are significantly higher than the chances of it actually happening.

Did wiggo have that many deals? He was in ads for cycling related things and SKy things I think but Hoy got the breakfast cereal adds and the gymanst Luis something got SUbway but I don't remember much for Wiggins.

The big money makers are the book deal scams and twiggos 2nd edition revisionist history in 2012 was a good seller for a few weeks then fell off. I wonder if Froome's recent revisionist books matched that.
