Re: Marcelo "CH1NO" R1OS Thread!!!!!!
Marcelo says he hasn't had any invites for this year because it wasn't liked that he won so many events last year - and the seniors event is the idea of Mac - Mac was the most vocal in his criticism, so I guess he has put a spanner in the works. And who invited Marcelo in the first place? Mac! I'm hoping he gets a couple of invites somewhere - having been to Portugal last year, I can tell you he was so well received, and here was a real buzz about the tournament - the kids there loved him! He got precedence over Mac in the 'meet and greet' with the players - must have gone down like a led ballooon with Mac. I'll be gutted if he doesn't play Portugal!
