Fail.
Fail indeed, if you interpret my posts pointing out that Contador's actions are relatively low-key compared to some other stuff as being "hostile" to His Lanceness.

Fail also for not being able to keep up with the thread (see the post above mine).

Yeah. It was said back near the head of the thread.

What do you guys think of the new logo on his hat and TT helmet?

No...this is what I interpreted as somewhat hostile. "All the Lance fanbois have their panties in a wad b/c their hero got beaten & dissed by that skinny foreigner."

You hate Lance, I get it...whatever. Someone not liking something Contador does doesn't mean they're a Lance-lover.

I don't think LA ever had a shot at beating Contador this year or last but I believe he's still as good as everyone else.

I do know a lot of you will dissappear when he hangs up his spurs for good. That's too bad.
I will not miss the true 99ers. I will miss those who started as 99ers and then learned there was a TDF before Lance.

I rather liked Ulrich and after Lance's unkind and totally uncalled for comments when Jan waited on the climb where Lance caught a mussette bag I lost a lot of respect for him.

But still I like Lance a whole lot better than many of his Fanboys. Lance admits he is getting old, many fanboys do not. Many of the commercials he is in rub me the worng way. On that I really wish I had an inside source. He is either a total tool or he is laughing at himself and his image. I do hope it is the later.

Oh and I guess I hate his blind detractors even more. It hurts to have ot point out that much said against Lance is untrue.

Two good posts.

Keith, I would add that I think, in general, the LA haters dislike the blind fanboys way more than they hate LA.

Dont hate Lance (although I dont particularly like him, eiter). Do find the Lance Lemmings annoying. Also somewhat annoying are people that think that anyone who doesnt worship at the Shrine of Lance is a Lance hater.

What did Lance say that was unkind and totally uncalled for?

After his day today, losing more than 10 minutes, a top 20 would be a miracle.

I think Lance will come back to win it on the Tourmalet, taking the Michael Jordan after the stage. He will demolish his rivals. This is a very calculated game of possum. Just watch.
