This isn't a hate campaign by any means but I read his AB and he said he was humbled by the support he got through first getting the job on top gear and then through his crash ordeal, how quickly he forgot all that and became another knob tv presenter.

I think he's the fortunate one of the 3. The other 2 would have/already did forge(d) careers outside of Top Gear based on their talent. Hammond just caught the wave.

If he hadn't got onto TG I suspect a long career in hospital radio would have been his.

First smashes up a spider under the guise of being an Alfa fan then crushes a 156 knowing damn well that it would cause complaint

But 156's get crushed every day. There is just not enough enthusiasm for them/too many of them to drag prices out of the gutter and make them worth repairing.

In answer to your poll, yes I think he is but not because he squashed a 156.

Tolerated him up till now.
Crushing a 156 was the straw that broke the camel's back.

So all the really dickish zzzzz-list celebs aren't pricks because they've
not scrapped a couple of Alfas?

I don't think it's so much a case of crushing an Alfa as the associated hypochrisy. We are discussing Top Gear, a show whose mantra has been "you're not a petrolhead till you've owned an Alfa".

If 5th gear (or some other low rent not-paid-for-by-my-taxes show) had done it; probably not an issue.

No.

Do any of you actually think Hammond picked the 156 personally?

He seemed a bit hyper tonight. Maybe he'd been at the charlie or something.

I don't mind him though. I noticed the 156 that got squished was a sele so it was probably broken anyway **Runs and hides**

Not Top Gear Ros, Hammond...... it's simply him I don't like I love Top Gear, always have and probably always will
My gripe regarding TG is that he seems to take great pleasure in destroying Alfa's one minute and declaring his love for them the next but have you watched any of the other garbage he seems to rattle out at an amazing rate?
I find him fundamentally unlikeable.

EDIT: it doesn't mean that everyone must agree BTW, just my view
