I usually find amusement in your posts, but it is growing less amusing by the minute. The reason for this is you keep taking my posts way out of context and twisting my words. You have done this ever since I agreed with brodeal that you are full of ****.
I think you either do this because you are just trolling me, or you have some reading comprehension issues. Either way, watching what you come up with this crap recently is sorta like the comment I make to people when a hot chick walks by...some guy somewhere is tired of her ****. I am beginning to feel the same way about your increasingly less amusing posts.
So, I will clarify one more time for you on this particular "stupid people/fraud" issue. I should tell you that it will be the last time I reply to your posts if you continue this clown routine with your "misinterpretations". I'm not telling you this because you should give a **** I don't reply (I wouldn't if the tables were turned), but I am telling you this as a courtesy so you will not waste your time thinking of cute ways to reply to my posts in the future. You're welcome.
By "stupid" I mean stupid people that donated to FFF believing he was clean. Yes, I believe those people deserved to be screwed over. I don't know if you were on DPF when it got invaded by these FFF clowns and the TBV clowns. I was. But admittedly, along with not believing how stupid FL's supporters were, they did provide lots of entertainment. DPF had long leashes then and insulting these clowns and their theories was cool sport. Perhaps I am a little less tolerant of these idiots than you.
But, this for example does not mean that a person with the IQ of a hood ornament should be defrauded by say the Red Cross. If somebody that can't tie their shoes donates money to the Red Cross, the head of the Red Cross should not be able to take that money and go use it in the back room of The Men's Club just because the donator is stupid.
I hope this clarifies the "stupid people should be defrauded" remark that has made you think my moral compass has busted a spring.
You may have agreed with BroDeal but he certainly didn't agree with you! The same way you pretend you and Mark are friends. I'm still waiting for him to support your rallying cry against the haters! (I'm teasing!)
None the less I think you're warming to me... it takes time to understand my logic. But it’s worth it.
Now to the post at hand.
I think I finally get it. Why the hate and why the prejudice.
You were one of those people. I won’t say stupid because they will upset you. But I know why you’re so angry. You were one of those guys on DPF who supported the American contingent of Lance and Floyd against the nasty French. It was simple back then. Awesome American cyclists being persecuted by the French. Floyd included.
Now things are not so simple when Floyd came out with the real story from the ashes of the fairytale.
You had a choice. Where do you go? Do you believe his story. Or do you back the Lance horse which might be a seemingly better horse to back because it’s what the marketing says on the tin.
Sure I understand the division. But you know you can still like Lance and respect Floyd for what he’s done especially against great opposition.
You don’t actually have to pick sides.
Think about it.
Appears to me your more angry with Floyd for spoiling the dream in your head and making you look a little silly for the support you gave back in the day on DPF.
No I was never on DPF – are you serious? Those guys at one point intermated that suicide and a hit on certain cyclists was the way forward! Seriously. That’s what you subscribed to?
I like you Chris. I like your conviction. But you do need to have a long hard think about what’s motivating you here.
If you were to come back and acknowledge that Floyd has gone through a great trauma and now that he’s telling the truth doesn’t erase the prior hurt but it’s a big step towards a better cycling and more philosophically a better world (cringe).
This is why I keep saying you’re stuck in 2002. It’s like you’re willing for the days of the Blue Train again when everything was black and white.
World not like that my friend. World not like that.
Look forward to your thoughtful response.
