Fair comment lats. Was probably judging it on the bits I've seen myself so definitely open to correction.Interesting comments there from mcgill on eurosport: "doesnt feel like a world championship...feels like playing down the club." Wonder if wilson or others feel the same. Must surely be a help for mcgill if he keeps that attitude to the end. I like his honesty anyway.
Sorry, John, forgot about this!
I get where McGill was coming from. Has to be easier to not have all eyes on you, particularly when you've been away from the big time for a while. Sure there would have (if no crowd had been permitted for the final) come a point in time where its significance would have come into greater focus regardless!

I woke up at about 530 this morning and couldn't get back to sleep so picked up my phone and read this story. Then went back to sleep and forgot all about it. It just popped back into my head and I assumed I'd dreamed it!
Seems Ronnie's comments have made a few wake up and realise there's some easy money to be had from the noddies.
A sad indictment of where we're at.
