Posting Tips

by the fluoxetine kid   February 4, 2012  

Seems some people just don't get this fantasy thing--
If you think you have a Hot Tip or inside info you keep it to yourself so it helps you gain points on others; you don't tell everyone! The idea is you're supposed to win not help others win!
Ps I think Griepel will win so everyone should put him in their teams.

It's also a forum for a bit of craik amongst us all. Generally speaking i dont believe any of us have inside info or a hot tip, we just make it up, type it up and see what the reaction is. Big Grin

Well there are people having general banter as you will come to learn when you spend all year on the forum. There are also people that will post topics to fish for info as they don't know what to do. But in general the people that post are having banter with each other and any tips are to put people off that come on looking for info/tips rather than doing there own research or don't know enough about cycling.

Also I think you will see cyrill dessel in Gkam's team Wink

Banter, Banter, who does he ride for. Everyone is talking about him, he must be good. Big Grin

I don't know why, and i am doubting my sanity, but I have a hollywood legend in my squad - I don't think he has any form or palmares - when i do a google search it just tells me which films he has starred in. Thinking

Does anyone know if the injured Cavendish is any good at this sprinting mullarky? Wink

Hot tip ..... pick lots of climbers ... Qatar is a bit like the alps. Sprinters generally give up halfway into the first stage. Liar

Going to take a risk with the Iranian lad, Sohrabi.

I think it was abudhabichris last year singing his praises so why not give the lad a chance.

Aye, he races for Lotto with Henderson and Greipel so he might just be in with a chance and hopefully the heat wont affect him as much.

You could have had Shergar, Glen Miller and Amelia Ehrhart for less and still had money left for Boonen. Devil
