I think it's about time we crown and honor the biggest and most passionate Lance fan. So cast your vote!
Gonna change my name to "Chinese Water Torture" I have to say, I look at the jackhammer111 trophy every day with pride.elapid said:Jackhammer was a classic, but was actually a bit of fun if you didn't resort to personal bantering. TFF just wore him down until he broke in spectacular fashion. But then TFF enjoys doing this to many other posters!
I am going to give Robert Merivel his dues - once he gets over his ultra-defensive attitude to the rabid anti-Lance fans, he is actually discusses all things Lance rationally and intelligently.
There are some on the Clinical forum at the moment that should get honourable mentions, such as Gree. But he seems to have disappeared.
Well yea, and the problem there is....badboyberty said:Thought for Food? Doesn't he just post anit-Lance sentiments to give Lance-o-philes a chance to post about all the great things his Lanceness has done...
Since when do intelligence and rationality have anything to do with passion?elapid said:I am going to give Robert Merivel his dues - once he gets over his ultra-defensive attitude to the rabid anti-Lance fans, he is actually discusses all things Lance rationally and intelligently.

Awww, Coolhand. What a doucheapotamus. He banned me from RBR when I complained about him banning Realgains.Eva Maria said:I doubt you will see Swiftsolo here as he does not have his boyfriend Coolhand to protect him.
65rpm and Craboncrank should have got a start, but they don't have the "step on my Lance and I'll cut your head-off" attitude of some of the Lance-for-Pres crowd, and therefore will never podium on the "most passionate" competition.unsheath said:I would have thought 95rpm deserved a spot on the starting lineup. What about CarbonCrank??
It seems Bobby Drivel and BYU have literally disappeared off the face of the earth.
Dennis Norward?? Only seen him on BikeRadar???
No, I think it comes more from being a true bike racing fan who is initially very impressed by the accomplishments, but at the same time is capable of individual thought. At some point, if you don't have your head too far up your own jass, you start to see through some of the show. It doesn't really matter if you think he doped or not( the "proof" that he did also indicts every other top cyclist of the past 10 years, so do you only hate the one who cheated the best?). It has more to do with realising that the great humanitarian is really a mean spirted manipulative SOB. But your own view of him may differ. Who am I to argue with that?davestoller said:Is this really Hugh?
If so, prove it!
if not, lets move on.
As far as passionate Lance fans, I think a lot of the most vitriolic venom against him comes from a closeted inner Lance fanboy screaming to come out...just a thought.
