The poll on the front page indicates a decrease in public admiration of Alan Webb. Why would the creators of this web site set up something like that to humiliate a 19 year old. Its really disgraceful. I would have expected that kind of behavior from a prepubescent youngster.
If Alan Webb allows anything on a message board to bother him then he's already in big trouble. I wouldn't be concerned. Things are going to get much tougher than that!
You act like people that felt bad for Chelsea Clinton after the "Waynes World" guys insinuated she wasn't as cute as the Gore sisters that time on Saturday Night Live.
Webb is struggling to find a way back to the 3:53 level, and I personally think that he will do it. It might take a couple of years, but he'll be back.
Never judge a man by what he does at his best. Judge him by how well he deals with adversity and heartache.
