Comments on: Why Lance “Tweeted Out” Tony Kornheiser http://bikeintelligencer.com/2010/03/why-lance-tweeted-out-tony-kornheiser/ All bike, all the time Mon, 20 Jul 2015 20:53:37 +0000 hourly 1 By: Paul Andrews, BI editor http://bikeintelligencer.com/2010/03/why-lance-tweeted-out-tony-kornheiser/comment-page-1/#comment-737 Tue, 23 Mar 2010 20:39:55 +0000 http://bikeintelligencer.com/?p=2569#comment-737 Thanks Richard, that’s the way I saw the show too. A bit surprised at the followup venom against Kornheiser, all it does is make cyclists look petty and vindictive, which is what we criticize the “other side” for being and what Lance was trying to correct with his “we’re in this together” message.

I think it came out as a win for Kornheiser and Armstrong. Kornheiser came across as willing to listen, and Armstrong came across as reasonable and level headed. No fireworks on that show at all.

The guy apologized. For us to keep riding his ass just makes cyclists look petty and childish. Major kudos to Lance tho for setting things straight!!!

As someone who just recently started commuting to work on his bike and as a father with two boys who ride bikes all over the city, I’m glad to see someone stand up for what’s right. And I’m glad others showed their support. I wouldn’t wish Mr. Kornheiser to lose his job over this… although I wouldn’t mind seeing him have to ride a bike to work through city traffic. Now that could make for good TV.

I say that not just as an outraged and sickened cyclist,

but as a human being who thinks that nobody should be permitted to encourage hate violence on air like that.

ESPN should ensure that Lance goes on the air, Tony falls on his sword on air, then fire the entire crew!

Failing that, there needs to be a ghost bike campaign at the ESPN corporate office, as well as the local affiliate from which the show originates until the whole crew is replaced.

Kornheiser owes the bicycling community big. Just because he apologizes to Lance does not provide forgiveness. Lance cannot resolve this. He can certainly take the first step, but he does not have the bicycling community’s proxy.
