Versus is obsessed with Contador. EVERYTHING is discussed with reference to Contador. If he drops out . . . what will Versus do for a story line? Are they prepared to discuss even Evans and Schleck without reference to Contador? Will Andy lose all his motivation without Contador to mark?
Versus needs Contador. Without him, there's nobody to hate. What to do?
It's an awful lot like last year after it became obvious that Lance was uncompetitive. Once that happened, Versus was desperate for a story line. Hence, "The Failed Attack" become the story of the Tour de France for them.
The Tour de France is a wonderful, multi-dimensional event. There are a couple hundred great stories on that road, each a part of multiple complex strategies! Why must Versus always try to make it a one-story-line drama? Versus, stop taking the easy way out. Give the Tour its due!
