    @swoosh0018 defs tour directors, the sport needs characters like Sagan! Yes it was a doos move to elbow, but penalize him on the GC, Le tour is poorer without Sagan (who did apologize to Cavendish)

    @iri_adam good point. As TDF rules state any rider making a wilful obstruction against any of 1st 10 riders faces elimination. If equated to soccer was it Yellow or Red. Other reports also say Cavendish lost his balance before the elbow

    @swoosh0018 it was a mad dash and there was a crash waiting to happen, it’s unfortunate it happened in the manner it did. ok let’s put it this way, would u send Messi off in the 4th minute of a Clasico? Sometimes rules need to be bent with the bigger picture in mind. With Sagan booted, the tour and fans are deprived off a great entertainer! Just look at how yesterday’s stage ended as an example

    @iri_adam indeed the tour has lost a character. I for one love what these characters bring to the sporting World. 2003 World Cup missed out on Shane Warne, USA 94 Maradona. They were doping offenses but yes as Fan you are left Empty. At the sprint it gets ruff in the bunch also. A slight touch of the wheel and you down. Like an intense scrum in the end. Guess at the end of the day the Officials make the call and we as fans lament or ponder . But ya the Tour without Sagan is now a tad bit empty Iri
