The main reason I bring up Hamm and the American gymnastic team is because right from the beginning their attitude was "Oh darn" The first articles that came out regarding the possible judging error had many quotes from the Americans being extremely defensive and quite rude. They were not at all sympathetic to the Korean who might have deserved the Gold. If I remember correctly they quoted one of the coaches that it's like a football game, after the game, it's done whether or not there were unfair calls from the refs. No quotes about his sympathy for the possible unfair judging.... same with Hamm's father.

You're right that the FIG is the center of the problem and is the most to blame, however their actions do not dictate the American's quotes in the media and their overall attitude about the judging. Possibly later on Hamm and the other American coaches changed their attitudes, but at the beginning they were definitely singing another tune.

Also, I'm not trying to say that all Americans are like this and I find it unfair that the world generalizes Americans to be greedy, petty and self centered. If this happened between any other two countries I would have felt the exact same way. It's a shame that it had to involve an American.

I would rather lean against a BO man than sit next to an Asian/Indian FOB or an old granny with a musty smell... at least with the BO it wavers and you can catch hints of the scent while the other smells are just there... Once I was squished between an Asian FOB and an old granny. I almost threw up.

Somehow the smelly people like to sit next to me and lean closer to me.

Merci mes amis (I believe that's how to write it...)

I guess it only takes a little sarcasm to get responses on this board  ;D

But sincerely, thank you.... I believe I will apply early to a few and retake the Lsat in Dec. I won't play up the health problem thingy but I think it'll help more than hurt.

I know this topic died awhile ago, but I just wanted to put my two cents in. (ok, it's a bit long, but it has good points...)

Personally, I feel that Hamm won it. However, it's more his attitude that really got to me. When the controversy was in the air (without the knowledge of the 0.2 deduction for the multiple holds) Hamm was being a bit whiny and his camp had a horrible "we only care about us" attitude. The American team reps were saying that whether it's fair or not, it's not their problem that the judges misjudged a routine. At that time, the 0.2 deduction was not discovered and their attitudes were like, it's not our problem. Also, the American commentators were being quite rude towards the Korean gymnast during the individual events. Comments such as "It's mean to say, but Hamm never made a mistake as large as Yang" Wait, didn't Paul fall on his ass?

I feel that Paul was not a gracious winner and it hurts the American image when the American party was not being empathetic towards other gymnasts. The Korean party stated that they didn't want to take away anything from Hamm because they feel that he deserved it, however they wanted things to be fair.

Not only that, the reason the Koreans were upset was because when they first questioned the score of the judges right after the event, they were delayed and pushed away. Then they were told they had to file a complaint AFTER the event, which was wrong information.

Every gymnast out there has trained as long as Hamm has, maybe longer. They have trained with the dream of winning the highest coveted prize in their sport. If someone was to tell you that because of a judge's error you missed what could have been your career climax... how would that make you feel? If Hamm understood this, I think (before the .2 deduction was discovered) he should have offered to share the gold in True Olympic spirit.

I've been reading a lot on the whole controversy and although the Korean does not technically deserve the gold, Hamm could have been a better reprsentative of the American spirit.

Oh, if only I could ditch my persian rug (he does owe me some money, so I should keep him around). You are too kee yuh wuh.

I don't think your parents would approve of you banging anyone until you're married. However, I think my parents would approve anyone as long as he 1. had a PhD or a grad degree (MD or JD) 2. Treated me very well 3. could eat with chopsticks.

My parents aren't picky.
