Hoppel and Mc Bride displaying a Karl Malone va Dennis Rodman fight show in game 6 1998 NBA finals
I would be amazed. We've been f*cking it up so far.
He was shoved over 3 lanes. How was he not advanced?
He came across as a crybaby in that post race interview. F him
Hoppel tried to fill a gap that wasn’t there. The Canadian, McBride, got the bad deal.
McBride appealed and asked to be advanced. He was denied and rightfully so.
Advance Hoppel? Maybe. We've seen weaker advances. It didn't help his cause that he stayed in the race and got dusted in the final 100m. He should have hit the deck and rollef around a bit like a European soccer player.
This clownshow meet just keeps on rolling.
Floppel stomped on McBride, knocking him to the ground. Now McBride didn't get advanced, but some Americans think the instigator should??
At least there were no cameramen on the track or bogus false starts I guess.
Ahh poor me I trained for and dedicated my entire life to this for a whole year only to have it ruined by someone unfairly shoving me and destroying my momentum I’m such a crybaby
I thought the Jamaican guy caused all the troubles
Floppel or McBride?
He got bumped sideways right at 200m in. He was obviously affected, but I don’t see how you can directly correlate that to him getting outrun for the other 3/4 of the race.
If that happens coming off the final turn, or even 600 in then fine. If someone gets tripped up like that 2k into the prelim of a 5k do you really expect them to be advanced??
I’m a big fan of Hoppel’s but that is a really flimsy appeal and he shouldn’t have been advanced.
Tual is a little lucky. He started it by pushing McBride and McBride then shoved Hoppel to try and keep his feet. It's such a mess that I think the officials just didn't want to get involved.
Hoppel was limping down the homestretch. His form was definitely off after the incident.
After watching the replay I didn't think McBride or Hoppel were to blame.
I DO think Hoppel should have been moved on.
He wasn’t limping, he was tying up. He gets that rocking motion when he ties up.
McBride definitely shoved Hoppel but he was running in a straight line until Hoppel and the Jamaican tried to squeeze him as they were the ones cutting into his path. I think it was more the Jamaican causing this more so than Hoppel but that entire sequence was a mess
And I'll point: out after the race, the Jamaican guy apologized to McBride. Basically, he acknowledged he caused the mess
The Jamaican tried to squeeze into a gap that wasn’t there. This made him push Hoppel who then pushed McBride so Hoppel could try to maintain position. Then McBride ran into the back of someone and tripped and fell. It was all started by the Jamaican
As usual the pre-shove visual evidence is ambiguous. But once you get violently shoved, go down and stay there. I'm sure the shove impaired Hoppel and cost him a couple of seconds, but Hoppel's post-shove race looked like he wasn't physically impaired. A little limping would have helped also.
