How about "don't do whatever you did again or i'll throw water on you".

That was actually justified. He had a broken left collarbone at the time and somebody put a hand on it twice. I would have done the same.

Someone (official, photographer?) stepped in front of Cadel as he was slowing down after the line. He was trying to toss water on that guy, but missed. He did apologise to Cav right away.

Remember last year when McEwan was brought down by a cameraman in the funnel after the line?

In his defense, he is married. He may be a bit odd, but I wouldn't think if him as a diddler.

I might go so far as to say he seems like a little b*^ch.

I really wonder if he has some legitimate diagnosable mental/emotional issues.

Also, did you hear the bodyguard at the 19 seconds? I think he said "Don't touch the ****** bag"

The guy with the microphone touchs his collar bone. Looks as if he is testing him.
I think his antics are great entertainment. He might be a Dick but who cares.

So he's a bit emotional, its not like he's TO or Chad Johnson bragging his head off, making stupid promises, etc. I think people don't like him because of his voice, because he isn't very media friendly, and while he won the world championships he hasn't won a grand tour. Everyone has a bad moment, a bad day. Cut the guy some slack.

I've liked Cadel since he was just a mountain biker. I'd much rather have a real human personality than a Lance.

^This....WTF was he doing..just annoyed with all the ****** media or something? Still, just tossing water up in the air and it goes over other competitors....well, actually, I wouldn't mind doing that to him also...I kid.
