TdF Stage 1

by Joelsim   July 4, 2014  

Right, my team is picked, transfers planned for stages 2,3,4 and 5 already. (Ho ho ho)

Have left out some big names so a little bit of a gamble for stages 1 and 2.

And no, I'm not posting my team yet.

Clearly at fault here, what did he say about his HERO ? MAN UP ,.

Ciao Persona Non-Grata Wave

Now, now, VV, be a good little boy now and apologize to the good man. He's nice enough to play with you while you're on that computer thing of yours. It's not nice to be so aggressive to people you don't know. Come inside and grandma will give you a little cookie and milk. I apologize for my grandson's behavior.

Chiv, I was clearly talking to steve, even posted his remarks(calling me a bitch) and his name, about who started this and being called a criminal by Dr H and all the twisted statements and lies he put in my mouth. just making stuff up to suit.
I.E.
ME

Where have I bag other Brits??????
Funny how fast you guys turned on Wiggo, now he is a what did that bloke call him .....lol, only won your first TDF for your country then goes back to track to bring more glory to you....LMFAO Diffirent tune to what I was hearing in hear 2 months ago LOLOLOLOL

STEVE lie's
Now you said you don't hate Brits, but come straight out with some waffle about Wiggo, and how us Brits are a joke.
AND
Just a Hater with a big mouth. If this thread is so bad and not up to the standard of the others please feel free to vacate it. As for the Phone/camera incident so a celebrity got hacked off having his privacy invaded once upon a time no big deal it happens all the time, so what does that prove! You are sad dude grow up.

Obvoiusly got no Idea what incident about HIS HERO I am talking about. rants what , celebrity who, personal details what ? llololo
Where did I say Brits are a JOKE ?
I merely pointed something out.

AND for CHIV

Dbl standards here
ME
Might as well blame Cofidis too then, for taking off then shitting themselves on hill and upsetting trains on right side (LTB/Giant) ?

Is this not exactly what someone else said leter, yet I get harassed and called name for it ????????????? seemed like a reasonable statement with a slight joke to it to me.?

RAY

Or take it back further and blame Cofidis 3 man effort over to the left prior to Spartacus' effort.....or even further back and blame the Jensie......hell let's go all the way back and blame Kate Middleton for starting the race?

YOU

"You sir are turning into a blinkered tool ....

As a true cycling fan you should be more concerned about how the riders are rather than sticking the blame anywhere .....it's a pro Sprint there will be nudging, elbows ,heads going in all over the place but obviously because an Aussie was involved it had to be someone else's fault D Oh"

You did call me a tool and procede to call me a Idiot, I can live with that. But Cretin, Pom, Criminal, etc is out of line.

The truth really hurts, I have pointed out I did absolutely nothing wrong here, was attacked verbally abused and Bullied by most of the people here, even most stars going to derogatory remarks about me and my country !!!!! very shameful indeed.
I have taken it to heart the dbl standards here as it is free for all on me.. people calling me prejudice against races ...like OMG stevepro, show me your proof please?

I am feeling very low and hope I can get thru this and continue to to talk to Ray.
HAVE A GOOD LOOK AT YOURSELF and the standards here and what can come of them.
My brother has just called me and his Counsel has advised me to not comment any more on this, till he looks at it. thank you

Oh my god, how old are you VVV? Miss! Miss! Miss! He started it miss, it wasn't me miss I promise!

You're totally out of line, you went off on one about the crash before anyone one had properly analysed it or had time to comment, Cav has come out and apologised, Gerrans has said no problem, its a racing incident but you were way out ahead of them throwing accusations around and causing trouble. The people on the forum are reasonable and polite for the most part, so for them to band together against you like they have should tell you that you're in the wrong here and that attitude sucks. The only person I've seen backing you up is your "brother" and the majority of people who agreed that it was Cav's fault agreed to only that and not the way that you then went about attacking him, brits, forum users and anyone else in your sights.

Let it go, give it a rest, learn how to not use CAPS LOCK and let's get back to the racing.

VV, luv, leave the nice people on the computer alone and come take a nap. It's that time of the day and you know how you get when you miss your medication. Come take a nap on nanna's lap and everything will be better. Why don't you come and sit on nanna's lap and watch TV? I hear there's a nice race going on in the English countryside today and I think it's on right now.

Interesting article this and why I get a crazy when cav is involved.
Was not hard to find one at all pages full.lol

http://www.sbs.com.au/cyclingcentral/news/49824/Cavendish-furious-after-...

some nice quotes in there . I like the one about him not being a good loser and
This cracker from his Team Boss ,lol.

However, Omega Pharma's Danish sporting director Brian Holm admitted that Cavendish went "ballistic" and said that it was best to avoid the team's fiery star rider at such moments.

"There were three, four or five riders who crashed when Cav went down and, if you ask him, it was probably somebody else's mistake," he said.

"I just heard him yelling inside the bus but I don't know what about. I think nobody can understand him when he's yelling. Nobody has a clue what he's saying.

I also wonder how many Comments I can find worse then mine when Rolland attacked on the stage Cadel got Tacked on and Wiggans was GC Leader if I remember? Hmmmm beat some beauties in there. from Hypocrites.

http://www.sbs.com.au/cyclingcentral/news/49824/Cavendish-furious-after-...

some nice quotes in there .

"I was going around a roundabout and it was very tight," a now calm Cavendish said. "My front wheel went, but I didn't necessarily lose the sprint because of that.

"I think there are a lot of factors. It took a lot of energy to get back from behind, but Andre was really strong."

In front of the television cameras, he also refused to blame problems with his bike for his bad day at the office, and insisted that his team "don't really do a song and dance when we don't win."

Nevertheless, Holm was confident that Cavendish would not take long to calm down and he did appear on Twitter later, swallowing his pride to congratulate Greipel for his win.

"Come dinner he will be going around the table saying sorry. He's a good lad, trust me."

Easy if you want to pick and choose your quotes.

Why do you need to cut and paste comments from a crash in last years tour ?

It proves absolutely nothing other than your scraping the barrel looking for evidence to try and not make you look like a complete tool.

AND if you are going to spout previous comments perhaps you should paste the whole lot in the future:

"When he is like this I stay away for a few hours," said Holm, who knows Cavendish inside out having worked with him at the HTC-Highroad team.

"We always end up laughing about it. Straight after a race he's like a boxer coming out of the ring.

"You can't judge somebody on what they say for a couple of hours after a cycling race, especially when they have been beaten like that.

"I think it's alright to be angry, just for two hours, then we can be a happy family again.

"Come dinner he will be going around the table saying sorry. He's a good lad, trust me."

There are no stupid questions, just stupid people.

VV, luv, come on outside now. It's time to leave the computer alone for a little while. You get so upset at those other boys on the internet. You get so agitated over how they treat in you in that bad forum place. I hate seeing you come out of the closet with tears in your eyes. Who is this Cav boy that upsets you so much? I apologize for my boy's behavior. He is so lonely around the house with nothing to do. I wish he had some good friends to talk to, but between me and the little chihuahua named 'Spartacus', whom the boy sees as an older brother, the poor little boy has no friends. I'm sorry. He's a good boy. He's just not that good around people. Very smart but very sensitive. I love him. Please treat him kindly if you will. The internet can be such a cruel place for such a lonely boy.

Sad incident for all those caught up, pointless comments about whose fault it might of been.


Cavendish is a legend to me. 25 grand tour wins, world champion, put cycling in the public eye here by becoming Sports personality of the year before Wiggins had even won the tour de France. Calling him a whining dog and the most dangerous rider in the peleton is not going to stand well with me and I stand by everything I have said. In my one real name.

I don't know how you come up with these str8 up lies or defamatory remarks?
Or did you just need to pay attention more in written comprehension at school ?

CAV is the biggest whinging dog to ever ride a bike, fancy calling other people dangerous. He had absolutely no right to do that( thinks he got right away all the time), ruined his and Gerrans TDF prob and many more , first day. WHAT A TOOL!

Firstly were did I say HE IS THE MOST DANERGOUS RIDER IN THE PELETON ?

I actually think Tylar Farrar is the most reckless rider in the peleton and always have and right up there when it comes to losing his cool and accusing everyone else.
Secondly Cav has won 25 GRAND TOURS has he. 25 x Giro,TDF, Veulta -GC ?
25 grand tours stage wins I think !
Little old Pettachi has won 48 himself Smile Then withdraws.
One thing I have always said , is I give Cav mega credit for finishing a TDF unlike Zabel or Pettachi.
Kudo's on that acheivment. Just don't like THE MAN, his ability is second to none.

And BTW Cadel has won BOTH those Titles you are referring to for the TWO of
them and FIRST.
Cuddles has been a champion mountain biker, winning the World Cup in 1998 and 1999.
Won the men's World Championship road race in Mendrisio, Switzerland in 2009

Then
" Pièce de résistance"
Wins the TDF becoming the first Australian to win the Tour de France and the oldest to win the overall general classification in the post-war era !

The win elicited much celebration in his home nation with calls for a national holiday as his win was compared to that of the 1983 America's Cup which was considered Australia's greatest sporting achievement !

Don't Stand to Long lol Smile

I made a mistake, I was actually referring to Phil Anderson another AUSTRLALIAN then, as he was THE FIRST NON EUOPEAN to win a STAGE of TDF.
I recently finished his Biography so it was at the front of my memory palace.

http://www.sbs.com.au/cyclingcentral/news/55186/Cav-s-apology-won-t-heal...

GreenEDGE sports director Matt White on Sunday said it was disappointing the sport's governing body didn't take any action against the British sprint sensation.

White said fellow director Neil Stephens "went and had a word to them this morning just for an explanation and they didn't really have one".

Have you heard Cav whinge every tour about dangerous riders and riders who shouldn't be there. You can't defend that , he was WAY OUT OF LINE. everyone called Cadel a dog in Giro (he didn't endanger any lives), yet Cav's is going to break someone's neck one day.
I actually made a comment to mate 12 hours earlier about Cav pushing into other teams trains back in the day!
let me Guess, Your British Smile.

So It looks like I may have missed out the word "stage" big deal and you certainly implied here that Cavendish was a dangerous rider. Easy to pick up on someone's typing errors when you haven't got an argument.

You keep bringing up Cadel, a guy I have nothing but respect for, what has he got to do with whether Cavendish is a tool/whiner/Dog/dangerous rider/killer of peoples tour dreams? I'll admit it if it will make you happy. I am blind stupid Cavendish apologist, who cannot see that he has won only 200 plus stages/stage races so far, 43 grand tour stages, 25 of them in the Tour de France (funny you didn't pick out that error of mine) the world championships, Milan San Remo, Two Olympic gold medals, SPOTY, as voted for by the British people, and the points jersey in all three grand tours, but is a tool.

As for the name calling, I'll agree the cretin comment was mine and uncalled for, but I nowhere called you a bitch! I said you whine like a bitch, which is true and not the same. I also called you a Pomme which was sort of a joke but, you pointed out that it wasn't even an insult anyway.
Okay so you don't like Cavendish it's a personality thing because he is arrogant and whiny when he loses, which isn't often, and when he wins he always gives the credit to his team mates. I have not heard him Whine every time he loses a race, that is just not true or any where near the truth.

If you want to get pedantic on the use of language you might actually look up the meaning of the word Tool

here let me do it for you]

http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=tool

Is that what you meant to call Cavendish? Nowhere do you seem to have produced a valid arguement that this definition fits the man. You see I can be pedantic too.

Dude I bought Cadel up again cause you bought Wiggans into it. Don't even start on Cadel's List of acheivements. Many junior world titles. Cpl Australian Cyclists of the year and oh a O.A.M.
Couldn't even admit I didn't say cav was the most dangerous rider in the peleton instead some piss weak excuse again. Ciao have fun reading, what Gerrans, Matt Whie and Neil Stephens really think .
