Suprised by the swiftness of dislike aimed towards young Pogacar. Personally I’m agnostic about him, but he is fun to watch.
It reminds me of the early days of this forum, when Alberto (The Great One) was despised here. Now I loved Alberto, but it is interesting to not be emotionally invested and see the shift in attitude when people slowly realize that no one is going to beat this guy for a long time barring misfortune.
I'd guess the main reason for that is that he blasted onto the scene beating a lot of riders people are fans of. It's not fun to have your favourite riders be seemingly chanceless.
Also dominance can get pretty boring. But in that regard I think we should be happy about Pogacar being the dominant rider because he uses his strengh to do amazing stuff. Not stare at his power meter and ride a train to GT wins.
