Brad Culp - Bad triathlete.com reporter

Recommended Posts

https://www.triathlete.com/2019/05/news/last-weekend-now-ironman-australia-70-3-st-george-itu-ld-worlds_375806

I find his report of Cam Wurf at ironman Australia pretty nasty from a reporter of our sport.

If all the Professionals were quiet and didn't talk, then the sport would be so boring.

It's guys like Cam and macca and Starky that make it interesting.  And actually ive reporters something to report about other than thoughts from their own head that most of us don;t give a shit about.

I thought they were mates & it was all in fun..?

If that's not the case, it's ordinary .

They both give each other heaps on twitter. I think it was a bit of an insider joke that missed the mark. But can see how it could be taken the wrong way

Brad had a run in with someone else on twitter of late too.  Just can't remember who now.

Seems like he rubs a lot of pros the wrong way.

Obviously a grade A prick

I'm confused-is this the part you are talking about?

"If he does, I will never hear the end of it because Cam really likes to talk."

That's a big call, coming from you.

Yeah but I'm not paid by Triathlete.com to report on the sport.  And therefore get athletes to actually talk to me so I can write articles about them.

The Pros should be like Trump.  Say something bad about me.  F off. I'm no longer talking to you.  Makes their jobs extremely hard.  Therefore their bosses ask questions, why don;t the Pros talk to you.

I took it as a joke, because Cam certainly isn't shy of talking himself up?

Geez if a comment like that makes him a grade A prick Id hate to think what you think about me and some of my jokes between my mates lol

But I don't know this guy or the intended context or if there is history so meh...dunno

plenty of other examples.  Maybe I'm just missing the point that he is weird and thats his thing.

I dont think anyone that runs faster than me is a prick so you are safe.  But if you lose some hair then the gate is back open. Thats my get out clause.

Brad did have the Culprit brand of bike. Just chinese carbon frames with his name on them. He did try a crowd fund me TT bike that never got off the ground. 😀

I think his style of writing is fairly tongue in cheek, I can't see too much wrong with it. I don't think Cam would be losing sleep over it.

I think this tweet sums up the kind of writer he is, not taking things too seriously

Yeah I've hung out with Brad.  He's a nice guy Razzing Cam. 

It's good to make it more interesting.   Cam and Starky are doing a great job.

Different bloke than the Culprit bikes - that was Josh Colp. 

 

He and Cam have got a fair bit of banter going . Wurf is a windup merchant of the highest degree, but he's delivering.

Wurf's comments on other peoples instagram are hilarious

Starky's just comes across as an obnoxious tool...

I read Culp’s article because Wurf linked it with a humorous comment on his Twitter feed. So. I’m not sure where you are going with this Peter.

I reckon Starky is just taking the piss, some of his stuff is very funny.  If he isn't, he is a REAL tool. Perhaps I am just giving him the benefit of the doubt because I figure nobody can be actually like that?

He seemed pretty chilled when he was on the Real Starky podcast.
