I thought Danica was going to test for Honda, not McLaren! :lol:

As I've stated previously, I'm not a fan of LH.

With that said, I can see not liking a driver or thinking he is overrated, however, your comments regarding LH appear to go much deeper than that.

It appears that you have developed a very strong negative obsession towards him. It's starting to get creepy.

I think it may be time for you to take a break and reevaluate your behavior.

took a while but satisfactory result in the end.

- glorious&victorious terrific and overwhelming use of facts (how quaint, facts, remember them) embarrasses the opportunist haters into a silence. makes them look daft.

- the increasingly bitter and twisted slategrey gets independently diagnosed as a psychological basket-case by other users and told to go do one.

can't quibble with any of that really

Yeah I'm getting bored too.

I'm still waiting for Josta to provide direct evidence regarding Reebok operating a sweatshop after 2005.

Again: it is not about SlateGray it is about Lewis Hamilton and his support for child labor.

Will Lewis be visiting any of the sweat shops to meet the children that are laboring under harsh conditions for long hours just so he can have more money to feather his nest? Will he have a photog along to capture the warmth and joy on the faces of those slaving away so he can enjoy his uber rich life?

Remember now the thread is about Lewis Hamilton and has nothing to do with the state of mind of SlateGray. I know you guys love me so much you just can’t resist talking about me but it is Lewis that is the subject of this thread.

With that said, I've always enjoyed reading your posts prior to your "LH campaign". I found your posts to be among the best on the BB. It's too bad you've decided to go in this new direction.

Which one do you recommend he visits? You seem long on vitriol, but short on facts. Plenty of people have asked for evidence of current Reebok sweatshops, none has been provided. G&V has posted info on Reebok's current position, no response has been provided.

And I think the answer to your question (even if there is one for him to visit) is: I think there's about as much chance as there was of JV visiting a lung cancer ward during his BAR days.

That's the thing. He has snapped since Lewis came along and has become so ridiculous, emotional and mostly juvenile in his criticism. Just look at his posts in this thread alone. No substance to it. But it floats his boat, so let him be, I say.

Reeboks should be good, good for running and walking.

I'm fairly certain you'll find that Lewis Hamilton doesn't support child labor. I'm also sure you're probably aware of that.

Hmm, you can read all about Reebok and the FLA here

For instance, in feb 2007, former sweatshop BJ&B was forced to close because Reebok refused to continue dealing with them post sweatshop era, (because the price went up to pay for non exploitation). Once again, Reebok could have taken the initiative and commended them for the transformation, but instead they pulled out because sweatshops are cheaper.

Instead of paying a bit more to not exploit people, Reebok are content to pour money into fake anti sweatshop organisations like the FLA, and sports stars like Lewis. Lewis may not realise this, he is after all only 23, so I understand people who want to defend him, but to defend Reebok and sweatshops is reprehensible.

The article you linked to doesn't state that Reebok is operating a sweatshop.

Wow I never dreamed that it was that bad. That linked site is rich with information and none of it is flattering to the FLA puppet front or the sweat shop supporting companies like Reebok who dreamed it up in order to deflect attention from the problem of exploitation of workers ...

Still having trouble backing up you claims with facts, eh?
