You're actually condoning the assault of Sky employees because of "Anglo-Saxon cultural imperialism"?

Horrible to see prejudice like this in the 21st century.

No really, sporting tactics you disapprove of really isn't as horrible as violent conduct. Careful with your wording, or your priorities, or your brain, whichever it may be.

giving up on contador winning the tour in the mountains?
I thought this even before the Tour, its unreal for a guy who rides Giro-Tour to be the best in the mountains of the whole field (sorry Marco) ;)
You shouldn't said that.You are a disgrace for Contador fans :p
:D
Im not talking for all AC fans, :p but I really had this thought in my mind.To be precise I thought he would be on par with Froome + Nibali (didint expect CF in such a form tho) and a bit below Quintana in the mountains (3rd week). He will win this Tour by being the best warrior and GT rider, not a climber (that was in 2014 :()

Nibali was extremely nervous in the interview with Italian TV. Asked whether today was like the second stage, he looked very pissed off with the journalist. I’ve never seen Nibali so nervous
 
"Let's assault Sky employees because the Tour is no longer a closed shop for my favourite cyclists" is the ideological sibling of "Let's kill tourists on a beach because the crusaders invaded Iraq".

I am not. All I am saying is that behaviour like that doesn't come from nothing. That's something totally different to condoning or justifying it.

Was the Sky soigneur drunk? He almost put Mollema on the ground
Just saw that, absolutely gutted by Sky's attitude on this Tour. Reminds me when French guys ambushed a Sky team car in the Alps in 2013, to make them pay for their arrogance.
So they deserve a beating? Ok.
I never said that. But their arrogant ways sure does not make them very welcome in some places. And, sadly, some dumb people are always looking for an excuse to get violent. Let's hope for the best, but I would not be surprised if SKy had to face a hostile atmosphere by the end of the race.

Come on, Sky are annoying as hell. They have one of the worst attitude towards cycling BUT assaulting Sky team’s cars is actually one of the most stupid things French people can do

And I suppose women are part-responsible for being raped if they're wearing skimpy clothes too.

Great post, shows intelligence.

I do believe that people who do not have the intelligence to use the power of reason will ventilate their feelings through violence. Even though I do not approve any kind of assault it doesn't make their feelings any less legitimate.

There's a crash in the field and a number of riders are down. Katusha and Saxo both involved.

Who is down from Saxo? I can't watch

EDIT: thanks carols

Both posters there saying "I don't condone assault, but..." - there is no "but". Outright condemnation is the prerequisite answer for a serious person.
If you have absolutely no clue about human nature and behaviour whatsoever that could be the case.
