Yeah, this. Merckx won everything there is to win in cycling. And most of his Grand Tours he won multiple jerseys - not just the yellow but also the green and very often the polka dot as well. He was a freak of nature.

I don't think there's any other sport with a GOAT as undisputed as Merckx is in cycling.

Yes it does.

Novak merely repeated what everybody else round the world is saying, it's not like he made some revelation there If you weren't infatuated with your American hero, you'd think the same.

You trolls here really need to beef up your skills in creating a decent argument.

Armstrong isn't evil and the only ones he's made miserable are the ones who attacked him for doing what everyone else in the sport was doing at the time.

Go back to trollin' the GM.



He can send his regards...I'll send him the record books and ask who has the most TDF wins. Lance is the greatest ever.



Djokovic is a HYPOCRITE.

Lance is a HERO.

Can anyone really argue that statement?

1 guy has raised millions for cancer research through his charity and spear headed an effort to promote a healthy lifestyle.

Another guy is just a pompous ass running his mouth and doesn't even have a charity to speak of...even though he's made millions. He's talking about how people should suffer for cheating...meanwhile he's faked injuries a million times to try to gain an upper hand in matches, gosh if that's not cheating I don't know what is.

Lance hero.

Novak Hypocrite.



American's are bees knees dude... also we're the richest, most highly developed country in the world. Um, but yea we blindly believe the media and are slaves to the television. We totally suck and are dumb...

Just like how you don't watch tennis or understand the game. You clearly didn't watch Lance, the tour or much cycling. I don't know what that has to do with the media or Americans but I'll just smile and nod the next time you post.



WTF!? I mean it seriously, I suppose your post was suppose to be meant as incompetent. Most Tour De France wins ever...yea, but he wasn't the best cyclist in the history of the sport. Hmm...I also think that Andre Agassi was the greatest tennis player ever based on my opinion I mean using an empirical measurement like number of weeks at number 1, slam wins, titles etc. That's just stupid, I'll pickout who I like and just say they are the best ever.

Nice post. LOL.



LOL. Yea, do you believe in Santa Claus too?
I can see you've beefed your argument creating skills up to that point where you lose all contacts with reality.
In your own reality you created a whole new world of lies and twisted facts.
You can dwell in it for as long as you wish, I don't mind.

Livestrong gave up funding cancer research in 2005, they're very open about it. It was a PR front by Nike and Armstrong, very cleverly done. Made him a ton of money - for example, look at livestrong.com. It's a commercial operation, which pays Armstrong (.org is the supposed cancer foundation).

A nice example is that Livestrong was paying lobbyists in Washington, trying to get USADA to lay off Armstrong. Why would a cancer foundation do that?

You were not stating your opinion. You said djokvoic did no charity, no foundation to help people. The FACT is he has a charitable foundation helping young people of which he even received Centrepoint Award in London last year. These are FACTS, not opinion or perspective.

Obvious, FACTS are not something you can deal with.

And in your hero worship of Armstrong, you are so blinded that you even not recognised his charitable foundation, which is so holy in your opinion that you do not even know said foundation no longer contribute to any cancer research for many years.

And I have wasted enough time here, not just you but this thread.

This is especially true now where we have zero privacy. The moment Fed/Nole/Murray/Rafa start taking performance enhancing drugs/cheating, rumors would spread like a plague and they'd have nowhere to hide.

Basically, until we have a concrete proof (such as Armstrong in cycling), it is extremely cynical to assume that the same is true in tennis at the very top of the game.

Like I said before, unless you are into conspiracy theories, it is extremely difficult to believe that the elite players, who are constantly under the microscope, and who have so much at stake, are taking performance enhancing drugs. Lower ranked guys, maybe, as they have less to lose and as they are off the spotlight, but the top 4-5...forget it.
QED.

That's it, pretty much. Somehow, Litotes arguments seem more compelling.

(Incidentally, the journalist who wrote the piece is neither a specialist in cycling nor any other sports.)

If cyclists were able to do it, crossing the extremely closely watched French borders, getting BBs into Australia is easy as.
