Blame the media and not Bodie. All he wants to do is ski and be left alone.

You say that, but he doesn't act like it. If he didn't want the media attention, he would not have said what he said during the 60 minutes interview. He would not have been clubbing the night before his first comp. He would not be testing new skiis the day before the comp. He would not blow off inspecting the run. OK, maybe that is in his character. But he wouldn't just walk away after making an honest mistake that could have happened to anyone.

I am sorry, I can't give him a complete pass.

Who agrees that 5th in the downhill is pretty good unless you ski like Greg Maddux used to pitch in his prime...
