Re: Predictions

The women's 4x4 are a 'golden chance' as according to 'expert' Colin Jackson, the Americans are very ordinary, and so are the Jamaicans these days O the dreams across the pond. USA women's 4X4 is better then ever. No superstar just all quality, they may not medal in the open 4 but I could see all t...

Re: Are Olympic bans worthwhile?

I'm always for giving people a second chance. So, I think the british rule is unfair. But lifetime bans should be in place for the 2nd offense. As one and done rule doesn't leave any exceptions for mistakes or accidents. As there are accidents in doping offenses, as how many of you out there pay att...

Re: Which athletes do you think should switch events?

How about someone going back to a previous event? It always disappointed me that Carolina Klüft stopped doing Hept's. Wouldn't the London games be even more exciting with her in the Hept? Wonder what she could still do in it? and would that give the event 3 possible contenders for the Gold? Now that...

the answer is Yes. :( Unfortunately for those of us who stupidly had her on our Fantasy team but at the last minute dropped her for Isinbeyeva. :x I hate Hindsight!!!

Ennis' Silver?

Just wondering how everyone views Ennis Silver in the Hept. Is it a failure on her part? Or still a success? If everyone is happy about Farah's Silver are they similarly happy about Ennis'? As both should be strong contenders for the London games. I've always held the view that if you won a medal, n...

Re: World Champs Daegu 2011 Prediction Contest

Thanks for all your hardwork. I've run some of these contest in the past, so I know how much time it takes. Great job. 8) On the plus side, most of you picked the winners of the women's 10k, marathon and LJ, but no one picked the other medallists in the event. Sorry, to complain but I had Masai in t...

Predictions on no yearly performance

Don't you just hate the athletes that don't compete (or sparingly) all year and then show up at championships looking great? Seems like I pick the wrong ones all the time. Have K. Bekele, don't have Murofushi, Have Hooker, don't have Merritt. Its madden I say. How do they expect us fantasy players t...
