Teams & Riders Tadej Pogačar discussion thread

Page 622 - Get up to date with the latest news, scores & standings from the Cycling News Community.
I have gone through about 80 pages since the beginning of the Giro, and extracted 202 posts to put into another thread: Pogacar as GOAT: now, never or when. Maybe we can have that increasingly bitter and polemic set of trolling accuations over there, and keep this as a discussion of current racing.

That thread even has a poll, but no Vino option.

Why a new thread? Doesn't make any sense. If you are going to extract every post from every thread that doesn't talk about road racing, you are screwed mate. Just warn people, if they don't listen, ban them.

Not bannable material: but a distinct area of discussion, and I believe that both threads will benefit from it being distinct.

For what it's worth, my own position is that it is such a subjective matter, with huge opportunities for those of any opinion to garner bias confirmation data, that to argue with the degree of certainty and absolute conviction that some do, is meaningless.

In 2 months, no one will remember the other thread. You already created a different thread to discuss how likely would be for Pogacar to win Giro-Tour, no one write there anymore and they still discuss here how Pogi is the heavy favourite to win Giro-Tour.
But you are the mod, do whatever you want. I just think it is pointless...
 
No I didn't:
Gigs started one
Nerserk started one as a refinement of that
Sorry but I maintain my opinion. Those threads generate discussion for a week or two however they are forgotten very quickly. It doesn't make sense at all. For example, Gigs thread had one page. What is the point of having secondary threads with one page or 6 pages? Just put where it belongs, the Pogacar Discussion Thread

I don't see how that is not a justification for the existence of the threads.
I also personally think subthreads are helpfull, especially for specific but interesting Topics about races, riders or teams, because they are more inviting than forever threads where you sometimes have to go back tens of pages to understand, what he hell all the cross references are about. You easily get like 3 different discussions at the same time.

I mean that's entirely down to the 2nd thread which was discussing a very similar topic and had 6 pages. And regardless of page numbers, the point of those threads was to make a poll, which you cannot do here. Creating threads for topics related to a rider who already has his own thread is a very legitimate thing to do.

That said, I also don't think discussions concerned with a rider need to be extracted from that riders thread retroactively by mods. It seems like a lot of work for @Armchair cyclist and I think it can suffocate discussions. There were similar cases in recent months where a new thread was created but the people discussing the topic here never migrated to the new thread. So the creation of a thread for the discussion instead ended the discussion.

Sounds like success.
