Go to 1:46 on the video and you can see Nibali lobbing the bottle at Froome (He has an Astana rider either side of him but the national bands give him away). About 7 seconds later on the video you see Froome mouthing something at Nibali and the bidon is just in front of Froome's bike.
But no way is that white object Nibali's bottle. Computer, magnify:

He had another 2-3 in his shirt, he was going to bring some water to his domestiques but froome pissed him so much that he changed his priorities :)

Lol'd.

I can't wait for them to hit the mountains so we can collectively retire all the silly drama like Bidongate in favor of arguing about whether or not X cyclist actually blew up and what mitigating factors caused so-and-so to lose time.
 
So he didn't throw a bottle at Froome ? Except it has been reported that his bottle hit Froome in the back

Pants on Fire

And the elbows on the cobbles remark smells of frustration which means he is rattled
After all he doesn't have to ride alongside Froome

At least Froome played down the bidon throw as Nibali counters with a snide remark on elbows.
Not class

It hasn't, only by Sky fans I guess.
I watched the replay over and over on a HD widescreen tv. I don't see a bottle thrown, only a white flag waved by a fan and Nibali moving in frustration.
Froome avoided the crash, he should've been long gone even before Nibali got up

Yes, the white is clearly a flag that appears later in the video too.

Didn't Nibali hurt his back in the crash? That must be bothering him :(
I haven't heard about that. Source?

It looks like he just ran out of energy today. He was at the front of the group and then suddenly cracked and slipped right through the group. Not a very good sign.
