    I believe he has been doing this jump variations for at least two to three years. Saw it at Junior World's oin 2007.

    Just because he is family man and married to beautiful lady should not hinder in the investigation. he should be punished other wise others will follow in his path.
    most who get caught DOING drugs get treatment not punishment...

    and again why does an athlete have to be put to these standards (and not other types of celebrities).. the rolling stones flaunt their drug use and they have how many fans/followers?

    Lol, by punishment i meant not sending him to jail. Since he took drugs in 1997, they can't theoretically strip hi of his olympic gold medal from Atlanta(1996). He can removed from tennis hall of fame, exclude them from exhibition event like the one that took place at wimbledon earlier this year.

    2) Just because it happened so many years ago does not decrease the severity of the incident. Just because he covered it up and beat the system for years will encourage others to do the same. Bring in all the Designer Steroids.

    3) by not admitting punishment then he was competing and winning big bucks. further more he was earning lot more through endorsements (effectively taking someone else space and money). He earned a lot more through this method than he paid to charity.

    4) Worst Crime is taht he is now trying to sell the story and make money because he lied 12 years ago.

    5) Just because he is family man and married to beautiful lady should not hinder in the investigation. he should be punished other wise others will follow in his path.

    hope we won't hear the same from Gasquet few years from now
    I have no problem with your conclusion but all of your points seem a little out of touch to me.

    If you are talking about legal action then I don't think much will happen.
    I did not read his book and don't intend to.

He uses his hands a lot. Even though they are unnatural, I can see that he is trying so hard. And he is trying to add more slow motions into the programs (I haven't heard the music yet.) In that way, I'll say good for him!

    It says under your name "City of Love." That is a name for Paris - a beautiful city and well known haven for culture and American -bashing. (Except for the great genious Jerry Lewis ).

    BTW, I am from the "City of Brotherly Love" Go Phillies :

    Evan is showing the world that America is a land of many ethnic groups, races and that we come in many colors.

    But I don't think it was necessary for him to invent his own color though

    I would say *only* USA, with regards to North American attidude here -- Canada is not much like this at all. (don't know about Mexico)

    Compared to Mexico - por favor, we are like the world's greatest and friendliest sportsmen.

    But even if we can be over zealous supporters of our own athletes at times, we rarely beat, stab or shoot them to death as they do every single weekend all over Europe, Asia and South America at Footbal games.

    Geez, what a difference - we might cheer our players on - in other parts of the world spectators are maiming and killing each other.

    And I watch and read soccer/football/futbol every day and I am not offering an opinion here, this is a sad fact of much of the world's sporting scene OUTSIDE of the USA and Canada.

    And no nation wants or welcomes English fans on their soil at international soccer events because they are simply the WORST!!

    And better watch a little more carefully how our tennis players have been treated at the French Open over the years. Or the way Johnny Mac, after winning Wimbleton was treated very poorly by the fans, press and Tennis officials in England.

    If we support our athletes it is our choice. We don't cause riots, and trample hundreds of people to death like has been done too often in Europe.

    I could go on ....but not worth the trouble.

    Well John McEnroe is probably the biggest **** ever so that isn't a very good example. He brought a lot of negative attention to himself - don't dish it out if you can't take it back. Isn't that the saying?

    In Canada riots do occur in some places - there were some in Montreal just two years ago after the Habs won a playoff round. There is also the famous Richard Riot which occurred in the 50s.

    I am sure there have been some bad cases of fan behavior in the USA too. But not on a recurring weekly basis the way it happens in Europe.

    As to Johnny Mac - we are all entitled to our own opinions. Personally I think he was one of the greatest players whoever lived and whenever he appears on court at a Grand Slam event he is warmly received. Fans remember his great talent and passion and seem to have forgiven his bratty behavior.

    Are you old enough to have actually watched his career?

    Go watch a soccer/football match between Manchester City and Manchester United at Old Trafford and then tell me that booing non-home athletes is specifically an American thing. And weren't Russian figure skating fans chanting "fall fall fall" to Sasha Cohen at the Moscow worlds in 2005?
