Hold on... he didn't wanna go to the Olympics cause he's scared of offending his mates? His mates like?
He's in a position to be the fuckin Mufasa of ALL his (real) mates. Unless you meant he was worried about annoying Niall Horan? Then I'd buy it.
They're hardly gonna be mates if he offends them now are they no matter how many private jets he flys them about in? Besides Id already clarified that its the fashionable thing to be in North Down social circles
Im open to other suggestions as to why he really decided not to go to the Olympics, but this latest attachment thing is about as unbelievable as his Zika excuse
I would think him turning down the Olympics was a combination of things including the flag issue, the fact the Olympics really doesn't mean anything in golf, the zika issue and contract problems with him being a Nike ambassador and not being able to wear their gear when he was competing!!
All those things add up to a lot of hassle which he didn't really need so he pulled the pin. Who could argue with him either the way he finished off last season? Would you not rather have €10m in your sky rocket than an Olynpic medal in a sport that shouldn't be near the Olympics!
I think this is a pretty fair summation screenexile. As I posted earlier had he come out a couple of years ago and said I'm not comfortable with representing either team so I'm not going - fair enough, in fact that would show a bit of balls, and he's basically said this is now his position for 2020. I would think there'll hardly be a word about it for the foreseeable.
However while it doesn't offend
me, the sight of him with the symbol of a one party,sectarian, tinpot dictatorship, police state (rant over!) wrapped round his shoulders, does grate with me.
