    So, did he show you what to do, or what not to do.
    I was not familiar, but took the time to read the article and some of the comments. He sounds like a sociopath/psychopath to me,

    He is, but in America all we tend to care about is if he can win or not. The guy won big so we overlooked almost all of his reprehensible behaviors. The guys a bully, a narcissist and a bad guy in general. But he can coach basketball so its all good.....

    That's not just America. I have met the same animal in a different skin here in Oz, forgiven the same sins because he wins at his game (show horse training).
    I'm disinclined to tolerate or respect those people.
