So over here in America there is a growing hatred for the team that Lance Armstrong got most of us to love. If Twitter is any judge, the exclusion of Chris Horner from the TdF squad has turned most of RSN's remaining fans against Bruyneel and company.

Anyway, since it's being reported that Andy Schleck is out of the tour, we're giving RSN one last chance to put in Horner.

Otherwise it's all Garmin all the time over here.

The Hog's got to put Horner in now, I'd have thought. He's been to TdF several times before and is a half decent climber to support F Schleck.

Radioshack Nissan Trek Leopard Livestrong Nike Discovery Postal Mellow Jonny's is becoming a bit of a laughing stock, I agree.

In the UK we have a similarly uneasy coalition which appears to be going pear shaped.

That's unfair, it's not the coalition, just the two at the top.

And even then, it's only Clegg.

I don't hold any particular hatred for RSN, but I'd say they're my 3rd favorite American team, after Garmin and BMC. Of course, that's nothing new. The various iterations of RSN have just never had much in the way of charisma.

Why yes, they are. I think there's some Labrador Retriever in there too.  4

I still think of them as an American team, although I guess in a similar sense you could say BMC is a Swiss team.  39

BMC, registered in American with Swiss sponsors and referred to as a "Swiss" team

RSNT, registered in Luxembourg with American/Japanese/American sponsors  19

Maybe, but my info is based on the fact that the british flag appears next to their name on cycling fever...
