    If an athlete wants to endear people by being more charming, that's their perogative and there's nothing wrong with that. But, players like TO and Johnson, imo, make sports a lot more entertaining. We get something from their efforts. So, it seems fair and appropriate to me that they take some glory for themselves. It's not like we're judging how well they will fit into our families. We're judging some human being for their ability to perform some feat. It just seems fair to me that some of them make something of a farce out of the spectacle part of it.

    I didn't know that Bolt didn't shake hands with competitors. I'm not a fan of that and agree that that is different. There's a difference I think between arrogrance/bravado and bad sportsmanship.

    The good thing about arrogant athletes is watching their reaction when they get beat. Arrogance has it's downside.

    Definitely. For instance, beating the French in the swimming relay wouldn't have been as good if they hadn't declared that they were going to "smash" us.

    Only if the word "beat" is before the word "french" and not after.

    The French got beat
    The French loose as the army drummer maintained a regular beat
    The French are the ones everyone loves to beat
    The French beat no-one
    The French beat a hasty retreat
    etc. etc. etc.

    Wow, what a final basketball game. USA had a lot of three three-point shots, but some of the ones Spain got in were insane.

    They've already yanked the tkd incident from youtube although a few have stills of the fighter kicking the ref.

    Aw...those vid links are now dead

    seen the stills though, great kick!

    I feel sorry for the ref but i think some of the Taekwondo judges deserved a good kicking, some of the hits they don't count are ridiculous. You see that British girl who clear as anything hoofed the other girl in the face? Foot drags across her face, head snaps back, classic action movie reaction yet zilch from the judges, what a joke. Same goes for the boxing, its been a disgrace.
