You again blackmamba? So clingy dude, I already stated my opinion several times to you, go do something else more interesting.
Just find your Contador saltyness quite pathetic, apparently you gotte be a socialist if you cheer for the greatest cyclist of our generation, it cant be beacuse hes simply the greatest, always gotte be some excuses for everything ahaha :D Real life must be hard for you I see :rolleyes:
I'm not sweet on you the same way you're on me. Thanks for the attention though.

Contador's my favorite rider (since Ullrich). I just have a particular distaste for extremists. That's why I can't discuss football, politics and religion. I just didn't know that this particular disease started affecting cycling so much with one particular rider.

Going in, Contador was also one of my favourites since I always have had a weakness for Spanish riders, in particular climbers, but this forum has spoiled it all. Not that everyone probably cares, tho...

Well, if you let the attitude of other fans influence your likes and dislikes, that's your issue, not ours :)

Why would it be a issue? Its nature for many, luckily, to distance yourself from radicalism

Being a Contador fanboy is like being socialist: you can get away with everything you say no matter how dark and twisted it is, because being socialist (Contador fanboy) is and always will be trendy.

About mechanical doping, I doubt he's using it, but if he is, I'd bet it was on his last TT and in Giro's TT.
Ahhh an Southers US citizen :)

I'd love to live in some US cities, but I live in Europe :)

It's not really fair to Bertie to use 2009 as a benchmark for his form, is it?

I mean, it's the only Tour where he managed to beat the runner-up by more than 39".

I'm to scared to post on this thread anymore :D
Come on Ray! There's more carbon in your garage than in the mountains of West-Virginia ;) . You know your stuff, no doubt. Just keep it light. The Bertie fans are rabid; he wins, and the discussion is about him vs. Eddy for all-time best. He loses and it's "oh my God, oh my God"...it's a fun thread. It's one of the best threads, with passion and drama...a soap opera :eek: .
All there's to do is to keep it light, be a little sarcastic, and recognize that Bertie's fans won't change. He has a HUGE following, his aggressive style is attractive. Stay cool or stay away. Believe me: the missionary attitude doesn't work on CN forums. So take a back seat and enjoy Bay(Bertie) Watch. Maybe Laflo will come running on the beach in her red bikini ;) .

No one needs to change except those that can't follow the rules :). Simple really, follow the rules and there are no problems!

Meanwhile hopefully Berto is getting a bit of recovery and starting his build up to stellar form for le Tour.

How does his Tour team suck?!

Sagan = Awesomeness

Kreuziger + Majka >> Thomas + Poels

So what if he doesn't have 5 climbers to drive the train. He has what he needs, which is the top-end help in the mountains.
sagan can only help on bottom of the climb.
Kreuziger - hasn't proofed anything yet that he is the same as 2013. On the other hand Thomas has won 2 stage race which both of them beating contador (regardless the circumstances). Poehl - he was the only one who left with froome when he was dropped by Quintana.
Majka - he is the only one that can match the other contender. But he got Giro leg.

Contador needs someone with him when sky domestique got 5. Catalunya proofed that he can't control Richie and Tejay by himself (he ended up got out climbed by Quintana). He needs someone to help control those two. (Probably Froome will take his place of chasing these two) Movistar got Valverde and Quintana. As long as Contador showed up with tip top shape, he can use Froome to demolish everyone. (So far history shows that clearly once Froome winding up his leg, everyone is falling off like flys). Think 2014 Vuelta.

Everyone "almost" knows Bertie is my fav rider. I have posted and defended him on here more than anyone.
I have relished going over the same old debates/agument's . I enjoy telling it like it is.
The fact I switched to the dark side [ froome /sky] for a bit of fun I thought was fine.
We all know that bertie is the greatest GT rider [Merckx apart] and we all know I am always right :D
