Graham Watson: Keeper of Omerta

21 Oct 2010 23:45

Snarfed this from a post on Bike Radar. It is from the Q&A portion of Watson's website.

Eric G - 10/06/2010:
Just noticed the URL for the LeMond pics has the word "fool" in it instead of his name. Please correct this, not everyone is an Armstrong fan, and I was going to buy several prints from you, but no longer, very disappointed.

10/11/2010:
Hi Eric, I've not noticed that mistake, I'll have my webmaster look at it. Sorry we cannot appease you, I'm a fan of both guys, they both did a lot for my career, just a shame one cannot keep his mouth shut.. :) GW

It's a sad lesson, but one Graham has seemed to have learned well - "Don't sh*t where you eat, my friends. Don't sh*t where you eat." Thanks to Ween...

I think we should all post a little message to let him know how we feel.

I'm in, that is stupid, although I have susected for a while now. I didn't know what exactly, but this helps. It may be just as simple as ticking the right boxes for the power brokers(ex). Pance Arsegone is apparently quite keen on a bit of sycophancy.

To be fair Lance has been much better at keeping his mouth shut lately. Maybe Graham should reconsider.

On July 11th, 1998, the city of Dublin hosted the opening stages of the Tour de France. """It was the first time the Tour had left mainland Europe""", and Ireland was expected to give the great race a magnificent send-off."


That is blatantly untrue, even aye no that.I wasn't even looking for f*** oops.

"Sad to see your response regarding the person that pointed out your tagging of LeMond photos as "fool".

The true shame is that someone in your position isn't smart enough to realise that one of them is doing everything they can for the betterment of the sport and the other is out for whatever he can get in an ego driven desire to maintain his position in the modern peloton. The sport would be infinitely better if all the riders were like Greg. Certainly better than if even one of them attempts to emulate that parasite Armstrong.

Add me to the list of people that won't be purchasing your images."

I've been following Graham's work since he was a Major Douchebag.

Glad to see he's moved up the ranks to General Douchebag.

To be fair to Graham has anyone see the old guy lately? He has made the jump from clinically obsess to morbidly obsess. To maintain this corpulent figure requires a steady diet of Big Mac's, Doughnuts, and cheese. This can get expensive when consumed in Graham sized portions.....I have seen him slam those Big Mac's like Tic Tac's.

Graham has made the choice to be an Armstrong salad tosser to feed his habit.

Excellent! Can't wait to read his response, if he puts it up.

Big deal - Mr Watson calls LeMond a big-mouthed fool.

Hey, he is entitled to his own opinions lol.

He can call Greg a Patron of the Major Douchebags if he wants.
Or he can call Greg a Taco Bell scarfing Fat Boy if he wants.
Or a drunken skirt chaser of blonde twins that look like his own mother lol.

Right? Its ok to do that right?

I'm appalled. Cyclists provide the means to his income.

He has lost yet another well paying customer.

What an idiot. The helmet he wears while riding does little to protect the man who doesn't use his brain. While he is entitled to his opinion, if he values his income, he must learn to be more diplomatic.

Watson knows cycling. Did you see the woman from Beach Blanket Babylon singing God bless America at the National league penennet game in SF between Phillie and SF. Guess not being so hung up on yellow bracelet man. Were you hung up on some cross result? Did I mention Graham knows cycling?

Congratulations, we are all speechless. :confused::confused:

All of these guys who have a profit motive in cycling (Watson, Liggett, Sherwen, Roll) have to some extent sold their souls to the money-machine that is Lance, Inc.
Sounds to me like Watson wades in the shallow end.
Whereas Bob Roll floats face-down in the deep end :)

Come on I ausume you know sports. I trust Grahahm Phil Paul and Roll.

If you do not read between their lines(and Merckx) etc. I guess as Jan put it you can't put 2+2 together. Its all nuance an art. That is what cycling is .
