No, it's because of the attacking nature of many of your comments.

You would think Contador would have learned the first time he got caught in the back of a split peloton. The rest of the Astana team then was not. I guess Bruyneel must have taken the batteries out of Contador's radio or maybe it was Armstrong.
This is the kind of comment I'm alluding to. Very disparaging, and you are once again ignoring facts, making it sound like AC didn't pay attention to the spectators. Have you ever raced in a peloton, Al? Are you aware of the fluidity; the constant shifting forward and back that occurs for everyone, and every team, that isn't pulling at the front? And of course you are aware that AC wasn't 'caught in a split peloton'. He, along with a host of others, were caught by a crash. Big difference between that, and something like the wind or inattention causing a split.
