If you have been a loyal DWTS viewer then you know it was NOT uncalled for. They have been treating him badly for years and I wonder why he has stayed this long. He's the "bad boy" of the ballroom please - the stooges (and Brooke) are the only things bad on this show. I am so happy that he finally came out and said what he did and I know that the majority of the other pros (sans Mark and Derek) are happy about it too. It's been the Mark and Derek show for too long now - the ratings are the proof - viewers are also tired of seeing the same old people win year after year and tired of the mis-judging. No one can say that JR isn't the best dancer on the show - but how many times has he come out on top this season? I am pretty sure this is my last season of being a "loyal" viewer". If Maks goes - then for me this show is un-watchable.
And Maks IS as good as he thinks
