As a person that has done Web development and related activities,  I just don't see the positive outcome to such a policy.  Next we will be having countdowns for the LA USADA showdown.  Let them serve their time in peace and when they come back then applaud what they accomplish.  Races are the only thing we need a countdown for.

    Nah, I really like it for the Contador thread and I think we should make a similar type of countdown for other riders their threads when they get banned, such as Shep  :P

    Shep banned? Blasphemy! Ram will burn you at a stake!

    Oh, and Nibali. Nibali indeed.

    But we don't have a Nibali thread. Now if we had one and the Ferrari investigation did create such a situation, I would agree. But Shep was the first rider that sprang to my mind when I though of a single rider having a thread

    So we need a Nibali thread is what you're saying? I agree. And I choose to ignore all comments about Ferrari, since that has nothing to do with Nibali. Nothing I tell you!

    I agree we need to have a Nibali thread, he really is a great rider, even though he killed a dove in his time trial in Amsterdam

    I am Dutch and I love Nibali as a rider and hope he really does flourish and he does deserve his own thread. But there are rumours, but lets take those to the doping section.

    I am in a forgiving mood these days, Shep no dope, every man knows that.

    Cue LOTR dialogue- I'm no man.

    So you think we shouldn't have it because he deserves to be punished and his return shouldn't be anticipated because we don't need dopers in the sport? You sound like Jamsque or Benotti.

    I think what l29205 would like is that, while all things can and should be discussed in their appropriate place, what extra promotion we do should be dedicated to the sporting, competitive and healthful aspects of cycling as opposed to the cultivation of a forum strongly defined by sarcasm, irony and cynicism.

    And I agree with that. That's why there's a dedicated Doping Section. Let's stick to that.

    So the countdown should be in the doping section? What?

    For someone who keeps complaining about how much La Flo talks about Contador, you do seem to talk a lot about Kelderman.

    You're turning into a boomcie wannabe posting stupidity like this. There is no comparison, and you know it. I'll say anything I might have to say directly to Flo too, so there's no need for you to play back door snitch.
