I wasn't thinking of a player in particular, it was more a general impression. Former French players commenting on French TV and being pretty harsh with him, or the French players mentioning him when they were asked which players are disliked on the tour (PHM again in a chat not so long ago), etc.
he was not popular with the french crowd either, as we should easily recall from 04 RG. which is funny, because his finicky elitism is a mirror of french people. but they dont like cats either, when they are totally cats. and they love dogs, when they are totally the opposite of dogs... i happen to love the french and france. but i happen to love guille ...and cats...so i know they're all similar.
french = guille = cats.
