Me and Netserk made an avatar bet. I bet Costa will WIN Liége this Sunday, he believes/is sure he won't.

You can guess the rest.

From Liége to the start of the Giro. Is it ok?

At least give yourself a chance. You will also win if he podiums (which he won't).

You can decide how long you want to wear an avatar decided by me. If you want that from Sunday until the Giro that is fine by me.

Meanwhile Costa crashed and abandoned LBL. #lucky

This is my new avatar which I will use until the start of the Giro.

It was mostly meant as a joke. You don't have to wear that avatar. Also you will only have lost the bet after the race is over.

By then I will find a nice Nibali avatar for you :)

better to choose another avatar. Not entirely sure this one is ok.
A race that doesn't give an attacker the chance to finish it off alone is not a race anymore.

Sure it is. There's absolutely nothing wrong with it.

Will you forgive me if I don't fully trust your tolerance about images?
To me, it's not so sure.

Does it show nudity, violence or something similar?

My guess is that it wouldn't be a problem if it was a cartoon of an European with a bomb as a hat.

Arab and middle eastern people could feel offended by such a image. Best to avoid it I think.

And some people could feel offended if someone had a doper as avatar. So what?

it will be a shock to you to learn that the majority of people in the world perceive blasphemy as more offensive than doping...

I don't see how having a doper for a avatar can offend someone? :confused: That picture though depicts a religious figure in a stereotypical way and creates a stereotype about Middle Eastern people in general. People are very serious about their religion and culture. It's far more likely someone would be offended by an image making a joke about their religion and stereotyping them then a person would be about someone having a doper for an avatar.

I think that if people were a bit less politically correct the world would be a better place. Why not just leave me and Netserk to burn in hell at the sound of Yalla Habibi?
