RE: Galen Rupp interview with brazilian youtuber

To sum it up briefly, Rojo's actual presence mirrors his LR presence, so I guess props to him for being authentic online?? Every year Rojo graces a certain city with his presence during key races and somehow manages to be the number A hole in a city of A holes.

Just totally not true. But people can make comments about people on there. So if Rojo can have stuff said about him, Galen will have stuff as well. Not the end of the world that someone calls Rojo an ahole.

A friend of mine said to me, "Why don't you like Rupp?" I had no response other than the people on LR don't like him. Every since I've been a fan. There's a mob mentality to this place that Rojo, and Wejo complicity, fuel. Videos like the one shared by the OP, as edited as they may be, cut to the heart of this. He's a decent guy and a beautiful runner. There should be nothing but love for him on these boards.

Some don't like Galen as a runner because they are not fans of the ways of the NOP. Also they may not like that Galen doesn't make much effort to speak with the press or have social media presence.

Galen dropped out of Boston and avoided the media. Shalane dropped out and gave an interview and people like that. The press likes it as well because they want access.
