Still waiting for that elaboration of how that is judging someone.
To say that he is nothing is the same as saying he is something. You are making a judgment by stating that you know anything at all.
Judgments do not have to be negative.
I fully understand what you are trying to say and that is thats its impossible to not judge someone in some way. But You're failing in applying that idea. As all I said was he was neither of those things
My understanding is that not only did he juice for all of his titles, but that he successfully sued people that made allegations of it? He could be facing a hefty jail sentence..
The first part of the biography is okay, but then he talks about how hard it was, thinking about selling his 90,000 dollar porshe, or selling his 2 million dollar estate to pay for treatment. Yea, must have been real hard asshole. During treatment he basically strongarms his way into a health insurance policy with his sponsor, Oakley, even though he was ineligible because of a pre-existing condition. And then he goes on to complain about how one of his sponsors is only going to pay him 1/3 of his contract because he's not racing. $300,000 a year must be pretty rough.
His arrogance in his autobiography is pretty thick. He thinks people should show him compassion because he is inflicted with testicular cancer, the second most treatable cancer after skin cancer. The thing is he never shows others compassion but thinks he is entitled to it. The list goes on and on.
I stopped reading shortly after that. I thought I could relate, having gone through the same thing he did. Wrong. He is 100% asshole and I hope he dies in a fire.
Edit: apparently testicle is censored.
