Sky bosses are girlymen. Unlike Upchuckfuck, who is a manlyman.

What the shit is wrong with what Erik Young said? :eh:


I suppose a public figure should show a little more fucking decorum than that.

Good to see a medal around Wes Gough's neck at Auckland airport today. Just a shame that he doesn't get it at the same time as the rest of the team and stand on the podium with them.

Why didn't he get a medal with the rest of the team? The london2012 site has him down as riding in the B-final with Bewley, Ryan and Sergent.

He did get a medal. He just didn't get to stand on the podium during the medal ceremony.

The medal ceremony is restricted to the athletes that participate in the final.

edit: I was looking at the front page of the competition, not the "finals" page, which of course has different riders listed... :rolleyes:

Gough didn't ride the final, as Gate got selected instead. Only those in the final stand at the presentation, but all get medals.

aaah, the typical response from a person who assumes masculinity is superior and defined by what someone does. Ironic it comes from a Brad Wiggins fanboi...
