Briefs look better than jammers, if you are fit with very low body fat. Otherwise jammers look better, because theyâ€™re less revealing. IMO it is taboo for a guy to wear a shirt with briefs on the pool deck. Itâ€™s just not a good look.
In terms of haters, Iâ€™m guessing heâ€™s referring to critics. I have no problem with him putting out a video addressing it. There were some comments that were uncalled for in another thread. As well, he did explain that heâ€™s not just promoting products for profit. Thatâ€™s his take, although myself and many others would disagree. He has to make money for and from sponsors, but he needs to be careful about misinformation. Itâ€™s kind of a tough spot when itâ€™s your livelihood and you believe youâ€™re being honest.
I have noticed that he has put up a few self pity videos. Lionel does a lot of this too, but it just looks different because heâ€™s overly critical of himself so people take it better. Iâ€™m not a fan of that type of message. It seems to pump up the base and provides reassurance. I think it shows a lack of confidence and accountability.
Overall, I find him very entertaining and he provides some good information for beginners. Iâ€™d like to see him succeed. I do hope he stops putting out bad information though (ie. 80 watt sole stars) but I do realize he has become a salesman for his sponsors in addition to a triathlon vlogger/coach.
Why would you want someone who is enthusiastic about the sport and tries to encourage new people to try out this whole triathlon thing to â€śfade into oblivionâ€ť?
