do you think it's fair to, for example airstream, that you are allowed to have your own alberto love thread and he doesn't has his own schleck love thread? and if both of you are allowed to have such threads what's stopping ACF to his own cadel thread, DT his own DT thread and so on?

i would advise you to stay calm until susan arrives and makes her decision on this, i won't allow a silly issy fit over something as trivial as this.
Susan please you're my only hope. Remember that you said I could have a I Love Alberto thread. Now all haters can post here. ;o;

Well, I'm sure we have enough manpower to basically make this the Contador Appreciation thread, and Andy one's basically going to be the depreciation anyway. So might be alright.

But "yeah" for controversy! anyway

was the gino bartali thread who has now been buried deep down on the forum been constantly filled with off topic posts?

Also saving people during the WW2 is something really heroic to the true meaning of the word, so your comparison was is a bit exaggerated.
It was not a comparison. In fact on the contrary. I used the most extreme example i could think of, to determine whether there were limits or whether all rider threads would be renamed "discussion" threads.

Not everytime someone mentions 2 similar things in 1 sentence or post they are making a comparison you know. :rolleyes:

I say this because earlier today when i made a observation in another thread i was also accused of making a comparison which clearly was not being made.

They could also be contradicting them, or using them seperately, or, well there are a number of different options, doesn't just have to be a "comparison".

Until it gets locked:rolleyes:

Anyway i think you, Hitch and Zam are going to be too busy atm;)
 
Sorry, I'm afraid Alberto is going to have one thread like everyone else. Besides, you didn't really think you would not meet with jeering and opposition in the thread, did you?

And all: this is the Contador thread, not the place for a general discussion. Please stay on topic. All off-topic postings from here on will be deleted.

This is now a thread to discuss all things Alberto (except for things clinic related), you really have no need for a 100% 'love Alberto' thread as you already having this running constantly in your own head.

On topic: a twitter rumour is Banco Santender will sponsor Riis in 2013. Perhaps Contador is working on it

Nope, he's had a change of heart, so he's an Andy fan right now.


Does that mean Saxo is out though? Just seems strange to see a team "SaxoBank - Bank Santender" or something like that

you just have to remove a "bank"
Saxo-Santender? Still doesn't sound right.
Alberto Contador of team Saxo-Santender completes the GT triple crown by winning the 2013 Vuelta. Meh, sounds OK I guess :D

Maybe that is because it is actually "Alberto Contador of team Saxo-Santander"

1) hatred towards Alberto? he's one of the most popular riders here and there is very little negativity in the comments about him here. 2) if you get banned it'll be due to your irrational behavior.
