Nope. Normal atmosphere, he was entretaining the crowds and there were many of his fans out there.

Nope. In the end, I'd expect the US crowd to enjoy a balls-to-the-wall ball crusher like him. It's their sort of thing. I mean, they keep making muscle cars for a reason! :)

That's not just a US crowd, that's a NYC crowd which is the worst crowd in the world. We're infamous for getting on pro athletes' cases. If you've never met a real New Yorker, we're even worse than our reputation. Before anyone goes off about how they met nice people in New York, I was referring to true New Yorkers. There's a big difference between a real New Yorker and a transplanted New Yorker.

My guess is that there will also be plenty of Chileans at his matches - when he played here in Sunrise - they dominated the crowd - bascially won him his match with Vliegen

I saw a fuzzy looking replay from one angle.
Nothing else.
Nothing that rises to the level of guilty.
Especially since Gonzo said he didnt feel it.

Whether anyone believes him or not is on them.
Gonzo's the only one who knows what he felt or not.

Isn't it the same as the umpire not overruling a bad line call?
I remember when Andre was coming up sometimes overruling bad line calls on his side for the benefit of his oponent.
How long did it take for him to get over that? Not too long.

Gonzo's got game.
I enjoyed his Olympic finals match.
Pretty sure he's got entertainment value in NY.
Besides he's cute sometimes,
and isnt that all that matters?

Have you ever met a Philadelphia Eagles fan?

^^^ I might not go so far as to call it pathetic, but since we don't really know exactly what happened and exactly what gonzo knew and when he knew it ~~ I for one am not gonna condemn the man for something that uncertain.

He's the Oly silver medalist, so I'll take him at that.

Plus, let's not forget the fact that by the rules, he did nothing wrong. It is not his responsibility to call a touch against himself. It is the chair umpire's responsibility. It also is not the easiest call to make. If it just ticked and you can make it out in the slow motion, you can't always see it from the chair's angle, and with crowd noise, you certainly can't hear it.

Exactly.

AFTER we walk a mile in his moccasins,
then we can judge.

Until then ...... let the games be enjoyed!

We would eat Eagles fans for a snack. Philadelphia is the city of brotherly love, New York is the city of brothers all have different fathers.
