That was my first reaction, but then the cynic kicked in and I'm not so sure. Those comments led to the only article on the Olympic sailing I've seen in mainstream media (not that I've really been looking). Same thing with the media boat incident. It gets his name known and his picture seen by more people and ultimately sponsors are looking for maximum exposure.

Why? I think his media advisers would be really pleased with him. As above, his 'you don't want to make me angry'  soundbite is a real headline grabber. Its going to do him the world of good.
