I don't see much of the tantrums these days.

Were you not winging and swearing at some mud lately Makster?

And you didn't even stand to win money.

Was that someone else?

:roll:


If I knew full well that I had international tv coverage of every move I was making while riding, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't smash my bike to pieces because my skill was lacking.
Smashing equipment up that you're paid to endorse is no example to set. Take defeat with class, and EARN respect.
If money is all that matters, get a job!!

I think I am correct in assuming this was you Makster!



Does it really make a difference if you know you are on global T.V. and you have sponsors for your gear?

I don't think it should, passion is passion!

Whatever else you can throw at Murray, he definitely has passion.

Which I applaud. McEnroe was my boyhood hero, and he trumped Murray in terms of tantrums, as well as talent of course.

Note I am tongue in cheek about all this, it is not that big a deal that you think he is a twat.

Of course, a twat is a very nice thing.

It is indeed, and has made me smile watching again this morning.
My point is that passion is passion, and should be applauded, but petulance is just childish and that's what murray is to me
