I generally like TMQ, though he can be a bit pretentious at times. Either way he unequivocally has our backs on "The Salute" and opines that Hilburn didn't even "technically" violate the wording of the ruling.
I have to say, I agree with him. The wording does not state that bringing attention to yourself is against the rules, only the manner in which you do it. Hilburn did not violate the rule.
