OMG I thought his mom was Rebecca Twigg, please edit your response and save me from further embarrassment!

You're ok. You clarified. Twigg was blood doping. She was a cutie though.

I thought Connie Carpenter was clean but who knows.

Edit, damn, you were serious about being embarrassed as I've seen you edited the offending Ha, post.

Sorry too late. It's just a case of mistaken identity.

BTW, did you see that scene in Kingpin where Woody Harrelson doesn't have enough money for the rent? I'm about to heave right now just thinking about it. LOL

This kid Phinney is a nasty hypocritical little punk. Somehow he thinks it's "all good" to call out Vino as a doper and say "I don't like cheaters" while simultaneously nuthugging Lord Pharmstrong, King of the Dopers.

Seems the little punk has already taken up the cudgel of Omerta Enforcer of his own free will.

Maybe Phinney jr is the son of Hombre. It seems like he has the same "everyone dopes except for Lance" schtick.

Yo, Peeps - I think that both The Lance and T. Phinney have twit-blocked me at Twitter. :cool: How do I know for sure? I can't access either of their feeds.

if you get the "this person has protected their tweets message" youre blocked :D but if you log out you should still be able to view them

I hesitiate to speculate about what goes on during a job interview at RS. Sounds like Phinney was hired for his salad tossing abilities.

I suppose this fool is part of the UCI's new "clean" generation.

T Phinney

The kid is a jerk.

T Phinney's a good kid. He's a multiple world champion and has a bright future ahead.
With doping so prevalent in this sport, I do think it showed some inexperience singling out just one particular rider.

You weren't personally blocked. Previously anyone could "subscribe" to their feeds. If you "questioned" them and they didn't like it they would block you and it would pop up as "blocked."

Now they must be screening everyone. I guess Prance and Punk were getting a lot of abuse.

Don't feel bad, lmao, everyone of those twits blocked me personally. LA, TP, Hog, GH, Dylan Casey was the last. Race Radio informed me that DC and LA are both very good friends with Evan Williams, ceo of Twitter. It seems they're only open to salad tossing, no questions. I really wasn't nasty to any of them but I did take on a skeptical tone. Any way they're all asshats.

One question is why anyone ever argues with Race Radio? The guy is extremely well connected to the Pro cycling scene in addition to being smart and knowledgeable.

naaah, I'm definitely blocked. If I log out, I can see his feed. If I log in, his feed is suddenly protected. Not that I want to - or ever did - read his feed. That's why I thought it was funny that he blocked me. I didn't communicate w/ him on Twitter.

He doesn't like dopers Joe! The ones that get caught anyway...

maybe someone should ask Phinney what he thinks when Levi wins a race? I guess no one told him about that national championship Levi lost to a doping positive.

haha, probably true. in actuality, he blocked me shortly after 1) I wrote this post accusing everyone since LeMond of having been doped (and I'm still not entirely convinced about Big Mig - http://joepapp.blogspot.com/2010/04/lemond-was-clean-maybe-ullrich-could.html) and 2) I reached-out to a few other like-minded ex-pro's w/ even more knowledge than me (it must have filtered back to him - oh well).

I'm still waiting for a reply on his stance on the RS positive...

My advice follow no one, abuse everyone (weel, not quite everyone, just the dickheads ;))

I may be wrong but blocked and protected are two different things. I was previously subscribed to LA and all of his twits but after I challenged them it said something to the effect of "this user has blocked you."

Bono had that same protected thing that you posted in this thread and I asked for an invite and then was able to view his tweets.

BTW, I cancelled my twitter a couple of months ago and rarely look at it now.
