Von Flue's character actually grew on me shortly after he joined tuf. I felt bad he won then got traded to the other team. At first i thought he was a jackass but after a little i thought he was an ok guy and just trying to fit in. I never found him to be disrespectful and i think the flipping off was just some humor and heart he tried to add and show before tapping. lol I think he's an ok guy but i also don't know him too well.
