David Millar "Waaaaaaa>.."

Is anybody else tired of the sactimonious B.S. of Millar? He loves to shovel the sh$# about doping, but don't forget, he got caught. I feel the focus is on doping, if you whine hard enough, your team and you are clean and you don't have to win. It's not expected. What a crock. You cried and pointed fingers, you got back in to play. you're ok. Hypocrite.


If that's not bad enough, learn to ride a bike. This is the only rider who has the world's worst personal mechanic or he can't pedal and shift gears at the same time. Whenever he is in a position to prove himself, he sh*$s himself. Laterally spin a disc wheel, drop a chain, bind and snap a chain, etc. It's the bikes fault. Super clean superman seems to be somewhat of a ****.

I'm not tired of him. For what it's worth, I like him a lot.

Like him too. Got caught, didn't try to claim it was due to an unborn twin, drag it through the courts for two years or say it was a French conspiracy. He accepted his punishment and did his time.

Agreed 100%. I don't think he cried and pointed fingers at all. Quite the opposite, he took his lumps, admitted it was his fault and started with a clean slate. That's all you can ask from a human being.

I won't comment on anyone's bike handling skills. Pot calling the kettle black, so to speak.

I like him a lot also. He admitted and even lost a title. Everyone else denies, but at least he came clean.

He has a unique perspective on the situation, and for that reason he is interviewed & asked about it frequently. If he constantly told the reporters to STFU, he would be painted as an a-hole and you still wouldn't like him. As for equipment failures, there is such a thing as bad luck. It's not like he could have willed his chain to break. Not really something in his control.

I don't like him. I think he is sorry...Sorry he got caught and smart enough to milk his situation for all it's worth.

He could have willed a front derailer on for his prologue though.

Jabs aside, i like Millar and think its good that he is being outspoken. He went down the wrong path and is clearly dismayed to see other riders do the same now. I wouldn't call it whining.
