I have worked with guys who always overstate every little problem. These have been the least productive, least successful people I have ever known.

Why not, "I hurt my wrist, let's see how I feel in a couple hours?" AC posted he hurt his knee and it's nothing a little ice won't cure. For all we know, there is more damage to AC's knee than LL's wrist, but it's all in the eye of the beholder.

Attitude.

These guys probably aren't professional cyclists. You don't become a pro if you can't stand more than a little pain, and constantly whine about nothing. Fact.

Drama Queen

Suck it up Levi.

T Hamilton and G Hincapie can ride with broken collar bones. Some others as well. Phil Anderson's 1983 teammate Pascal Simon rode many days with a shoulder bone brake. He did have Yellow though.
