|Loking for the "origination" of these quotes (from the VeloNEws files).
"Obviously Lance is a star and I'm a domestique, and he's made millions of dollars and I've made thousands of dollars"
- Chann McRae
"Shut your mouth or I'll fill it with my fist"
- Robbie McEwen, to Lance Armstrong
Just curious as to what brought these about.

|two very different responses I think...the star/domestique comment is harmless, and I sympathize, in a winner take all society being second is a little little bit annoying...I'd also like to know what lance said to get the second quote...lance has a history for being a prick..putting only Robbie's words in the paper isnt good..good juice with lance and they dont go into depth?|

|Don't know about the first but I seem to recall ProCycling having a write up on McEwen a month or so ago. Their squabble was in reference to McEwen supposedly passing Armstrong in a race while Armstrong was taking a pee-break. Armstrong complained and this comment was part of the result.
Ironically, McEwen is somewhat like Armstrong pre-cancer and Armstrong appears to be becoming more of a traditionalist in the race etiquette sense.
I'm still too new to this to know who was right.
