bullsht, its all about politics. Half those fckwits running the team need to be replaced. he dont need to respect no karnt but himself, his team isnt fighting for him, he is the one running the race, its not a farkn team sport.

Ever wonder why a country like AUS has never won gold? its not because we have sht boxers, its because we have sht politics in the amateur ranks, it needs a complete over haul and fck off all those boys club fckwit officals who think their sht dont stink.

He qualifyed and no one has any legal grounds to deny him of his chances of gold at the olympics. he should go see a lawyer and stick the wind up these old karnts who want him to lick everyones nutsacks.

Be good to know all the facts before jumping in at the deep end like the Gnome.
You would think head coach Bodo Andreas is involved. A serial underachiever who always blames his charges , he should have been dumped years ago.
One thing is almost certain. We'll be seeing Hooper fighting pro before the end of the year.

This seems to happen all the time before big events, unless hes done something real bad why would you kick out the no 1 bloke in the team? He just come back from cleaning up in Europe where he won every comp and to be kicked out now is great for team moral! To me it doesn't make sense that Don Abnett and Kel Bryant were the ones that took him and the team to Europe just over a month ago and yet for the Olympics Bodo slides back in. I would of thought that is more unsettling than anything else.

Hooper has frightening potential as a pro but we are all gunning for him to get the medal first. That is if these ****wit coaches running the show can keep their eye on the prize

It pretty much tells you that he's been a naughty boy, acting like an immature kid with no respect

I'd dump him, it's our tax dollars paying for these people, if they want to act like children **** them off

Pretty sure he ****ed up at the Comm games in 2010 too. Hate to say it but I agree with Cronulla.

This is all politics, this kid is our best chance at Olympic gold ever. The coach of the Aussie team is a useless cunt. He should have been dumped years ago.
