Default Re: Andrew Bogut, I lost all respect 4 him the day he said this.....................

Two things. Firstly, Bogut already publically apoligized for his comments. He didn't mean them in a disrespectful way, he just seems to have a habit of coming across as someone who's a tad bit too cocky.

Secondly, the reason Bogut wasn't going to play for Australia in the Olympics was because he didn't have medical insurance. Now that he's signed an extension, he has the required insurance, and is going to play. It wasn't a case of him holding out. It's hard enough with some owners and GM's not wanting their guys in the Olympics, and you add to that a guy without insurance and it'd be a nightmare for him.
