Now that we've had a few days to recover, and over 1,000 posts of trolling over 2 threads, the question must be asked: Is Nalbandian a hero or a mug?
Is he a hero? For having the guts to call out the ATP in his speech after getting DQ'd? Bear in mind the crowd CHEERED for him when he talked about the big rule book and the ATP basically turning a blind eye when the top players do something and punishing lower ranked players for the same or lesser offences.
Or is he a huge mug for losing his cool and injuring the linesperson with a kick to the shin, getting DQ'd up a set in the Queens final, and cheating the fans out of a true conclusion to the final?
The fact that he sour-grapesily criticized the ATP after he was DQ'd (and not, say, after he had won a tournament and the ATP was buttering his bread and handing him fat checks) makes him a coward, not a hero.
Mug, mug, mug, mug, fuckin' mug.
