Re: NEW FORUM NOW LIVE

Horrible is the kindest word I can use about the new forum.

If it is about increasing more revenue through advertising then I am off. I value my security and ads are rigged with viruses and spybots.

Re: Rome DL

Interesting there was no Colin Jackson (tax avoidance?) or Paul Dickenson (ill?). I, personally, don't like Stuart Storey (too repetitive, makes a lot of mistakes and has a monotone voice!). Regarding field events I'd like to see Rob Walker supported by a knowledgeable coach. Rob adds a lot of colo...

Re: Outdoor season 2014

Have jost posted links to this weekend's IAAF meets including The FBK Games. Not many streams at the moment, but that is always the case with these two meets.

Re: Rome DL

Is it a mental thing? He's got his body in good shape and got a grip on his diet/Colitis but does he need to work on his mindset too? We know he's capable of better than that. Definitely. His mind has always been the problem. I am suprised that UKA have never worked on it since they took over from ...

Re: Tyson Gay banned for one year

Agreed, but IAAF and for that matter any NGB have the right to go to CAS to appeal against the leniency of a decision by WADA or in this instance USADA. During this appeal they could ask for the addition of a 2 year permit ban. Alternatively anyone invited to run in a permit meet must sign a contrac...

Re: Tyson Gay banned for one year

The IAAF should put in place an automatic 2 year ban on all IAAF permit meets. This would mean no Diamond League, World Challenge or World Championship (indoor and outdoor). That takes the pressure off the promoters and those banned for taking substances would not be able to earn money.

Re: Rome DL

I am not a fan of USATF's drug policy - the bit that goes "you will have 3/4 of your sentenced reduced if you tell us who gave you the drugs", it stinks. However I blame the agency who works with UKA to procure the best possible races for their athletes. I haven't done the stats but I woul...

Re: UKA Poaching Again!!

Nothing can move forward without there being a recognised National Coaches Association. One other thorny issue - I disagree that coaches should get a "transfer fee" for the loss of an athlete to funding by UKA. Athletes are not slaves! I do however believe that coaches should receive compe...

Re: Outdoor season 2014

If any individual athlete is responsible for the lifting of the BOA rule it's Lashawn Merritt. In 2011 he successfully won his case at CAS against the IOC rule which at that time banned those caught for serious drug offences from the next Olympics following their ban. After this it was pretty much ...

If it was Wayne Rooney sending out those tweets it would be on every back page and the whole nation would be asking for him to get sacked or banned.

Re: IAAF World Relays

It is disappointing to know that UKA are not sending a full team (again) to focus on the OG/WC events.

With that in mind I think the strongest line up should actually run the heats.
