Not had the opportunity to see much of Spies but, he is hugely impressive and, seemingly un-stoppable. Just a pity he brings out the worst in some of his jingoist, country men, narrow minded idiots who give the impression that his talents are a direct result of his nationality. I am struggling but, I will not allow these narrow-minded fools to ruin my appreciation of an up-coming star.
