2BuckChuckWheat, Oh the irony; you attacking the person and not the process all the damn time.

I usually get my argument in first. Then I get my insult in.

not too different than the Tony K reasoning process.

I call people on their idiocy and narcissism. A little different than advocating attempted murder with an automobile.

Boeing said:
just saying and I do agree with you most of the time

I do take care to be on the right side of arguments.

regardless of the myopia

I'm not saying I can't be an idiot. I just readily admit when I'm wrong.

Anywaysss, I'm sure Race Radio is going to come down on Strongarm's side when Strongarm is speaking out against vehicular assault. There is no inconsistency when Race Radio maintains his stance that LA is generally a fraudulent jacka$$.

I do like the PTI show although I prefer when le batard is on the show, but this rant is excessive it's fine if you don't like cyclists that's perfectly fine because we can be assholes. Promoting violence against cyclist is dangerous and reckless on his part. I do have another beef the other guy I'm assuming the co-host he was equally reprehensible.

BTW, Prance gave a lame a$$ performance on the Kornheiser show. If he would have put in half the effort he gave in screwing Contador, he would have performed a valuable service to cyclists everywhere. Very weak considering he's had many run ins with drivers.

Why Prance doesn't ask the obvious question about where all this anger comes from is beyond me. Being momentarily slowed by a group of cyclists equates to their deaths? WTF? Really Tony, wtf are you thinking?

I was talking to another cyclist and was just to the left of the white line and a landscaping vehicle nearly hits me. I catch up to the *** at the next light and say, "you nearly hit me." His response; "you were over the line." I say, "that means death for me?" No response. I really should have just climbed up on the truck and started punching.

Yep, Lance should have gone on and punched his lights out ... that surely would have fixed that anger problem of which we are all aware!

In terms of getting the message out broadly the reasoned approach has to be the way to go. He did that pretty well (whether or not he had a bug raging in his tummy).

I heard the show, and Kornheiser came off believably sorry for what he said. Lance didn't beat the crap out of him, but was stern with his point. Water under the bridge is my suggestion for everyone involved.

I don't think you just get to say "oops, sorry - let's move on" for promoting assault with a deadly weapon. Kornheiser got a two week suspension for commenting on the way another host dressed. I wonder what promoting vehicular assault will get him. My bet is nothing, an interesting testimony on the editorial policies of the station.

BTW, the interview was conducted on a long distance telephone line from France. He could have at least gave him a voice version of "the Look." Also I'm not interested in Kornhole's apology. I'm interested in my safety. Just like I don't want an inattentive or ddistracted driver to apologize to me.. I could care less. I want them to wake the f&ck up and pay attention to where they're going and what they're doing.

Bro, work on the reading comprehension. "Lance" had a day to think of something to say to Kornhole and all he could come up with is that if a car brushed a newbie woman 40 year old cyclist that she would in all likelihood, never ride again. I thought the problem was that encouraging already irrational drivers to be aggressive towards cyclists was that members of the cycling community might be either maimed or killed?

Yeah, but the point, which you missed completely, was that Prance did a horrible job of conveying to Kornhole and his audience that what Kornhole was doing was promoting vehicular assault and homicide. Prance should have been outraged and he did a lousy job conveying the idea that a moments stupidity and anger can cost someone their life.

It might be obvious and reasonable to you and me to assume that hitting someone with your car can result in grave injuries and death, but it's also obvious that $hitheads like Kornhole either don't understand the consequences of their actions or are promoting those consequences.

According to Prance it's more important to be cool with Kornhole than to graphically spell out the results of the kind of $hit this *** advocates on the radio.

I don't know how much you ride, but I'm on very dangerous roads more than 10,000 miles a year. Armstrong blew a great opportunity to provide a public service.

It's funny how he can be much more conscientious about important crap like sabotaging Contador during the Tour.

Kornheiser could join the long list of people on TV who get to a point they've been giving their "opinion" for so long, they can't help but utter the truth of what they really think. They usually end up getting fired or forced retirement, because they're no longer entertaining .

Listening to the audio of what he said, he's saying what many people are already saying privately. He just happened to do it publicly, which in the Politically Correct world doesn't fly.

He's giving his and many other drivers perspective on what they see on the road with cyclists. Face it, many cyclists are a-holes on the road. . . . just as many drivers are. The bottom line is we all share the road and need to get along on it.

Hating him(or anyone) for his beliefs is exactly how we got into this mess of a world to start with.

We could actually thank him for stating his beliefs..... bring them to light. This is how real change begins.

Who said anything about hating him? Calling a spade a spade isn't hating. The bottom line is that TK was advocating vehicular assault. What if he suggested that people play Russian roulette? Do you really think there is any difference?

Just because there are a lot of oblivious irresponsible douche bags in the world who think it's ok to play chicken in cars, doesn't make it ok.

Wake up!

This "hating" stuff is also bs. Like when you accurately criticise strongarm, you're "hating" on him?

Vocabulary, reading, and comprehension classes for the fanboys?

Someone almost hits you at 50mph and you call them on it and you're a hater? Someone advocates brushing up against a cyclist and you call him a douche and you're a hater? Jeez, even the douche baggiest cyclist never physically harmed anyone by blocking a lane. There's a difference between inconveniencing someone and killing them. Wake up and learn it.
