    Best time to vote for this is between 7.45 and 9.30 tonight. I think RobFowl will be a little distracted.

    No, but he will certainly feel it after you've come.

    so matt stephens is leaving GCN and they've mentioned looking for a replacement for him.
    maybe we should nominate a boardsie and petition GCN to take him or her.

    He's leaving? Maybe Eurosport gave him more time on air? I'd be happy with that he's good on there. Very good actually. Noticed him actually dare to speak over Kirby of late and bring the focus back to the race while Kirby tried to spout some drivel.

    As for the other handbags going on here I was expecting to come back here to some bike jousting or something and some portrait youtube videos akin to the ones you'd see Davie Joyce and his ilk post for the Sunday World all bare knuckled and stuff and I have to say I'm shocking disappointed lads :(


  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Arts Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 49,191 CMod ✭✭✭✭magicbastarder


    yep, he's leaving to concentrate on commentary work.

    Going to close the poll this morning.

    It's annoying me that I have put The Flamme Rouge in as opposed to La Flamme Rouge

    Correcting grammar is a job for moderators ..

    Now the thread title has been set in stone, we can finally return to the usual doping speculations.

    I was reading a book last year (Simon Critchley's Memory Theatre) and he used the YNWA acronym a few times. Not being particularly sporty, I deduced that it must stand for You 'N' Whose Army, which in hindsight is kind of ironic. The penny dropped a while later.

    On the subject of acronyms:
    so matt stephens is leaving GCN and they've mentioned looking for a replacement for him.
    maybe we should nominate a boardsie and petition GCN to take him or her.

    Every time I see GCN on the Cycling Forum, I immediately think it stands for Gay Community News, a publication I often see in cafes around town, which carries those three letters prominently on its cover. This makes reading the forum ever so slightly more amusing.

    was similar for me; i'm of a vintage where GCN was relatively well known in dublin.
