Re: Will CVC really go now?...

Heavy throws would survive even if the NCDP ceased to exist and even thrive, if the right people wanted to make it so. I am not a supporter of empire builders. The thread is about whether CVC should go, and the answer has to be a resounding yes, along with the governing body because it has failed to...

Re: Will CVC really go now?...

Like I previously said, we need a democratic accountable NGB for the 99.9% of athletics (grass roots) run on behalf of the clubs and by the clubs and a little accountable business looking after podium material on VFM basis funded according to its success rate.

Re: Merits of Running Indoors

Then there is the matter of an NGB needing so many on funding to show they are doing there jobs correctly, hence so many athletes being funded but hardly any of them on the podium...this is clearly funding to save jobs and it is wrong and another admission of failiure. Stings a bit this one doesn't...

Re: Will CVC really go now?...

In that case then the grass roots which represents 99.9% of the sport should have its own accountable democratic NGB and its taxes spent on the clubs, coachs, officials and athletes and not on a ridiculous sum in wages (£6million)to all the staff in UKAs ivory tower who have done jack to improve the...

Re: 6 Medals - Success or Failure?

Any fool with a pot of money can make themselves look good, this is all UKA have done, just look at the state of the grassroots if you want a true evaluation of UKA, absolutely disgusting. We have done equally well if not better when we had no money or paid jobs in the NGB and we would have done jus...

Re: Cost of Plastic Brits

Yes, coach education needs work - but I don't buy the argument that every coach is just a training module from being the next Alberto Salazar, Stephen Francis or anyone else. Actually I've never met an effective coach who even credited a coach education system as playing even a minor part in their ...

Re: Cost of Plastic Brits

NO MEDALS FROM THE PLASTIC BRITS = waste of money and lost places for our athletes and another failiure of CVCs. It cannot be argued that this tactic was an unsuccessful one, and it showed me that CVC was clutching at straws to get his reduced target of 8 medals. It also showed how he and UKA have ...

Re: Sword

UKA have proven to us conclusively that £200 million pounds, and £6million pounds wages bill per annum does not a good NGB make. For 13 years they have had the money, the choice of coaches and the best facilities and back up teams money can buy and they have done no better than when it was done for ...

Re: 6 Medals - Success or Failure?

We got 6 medals and that has not beaten Atlanta '96 or Sydney 2000. CVC will say but we got 4 gold medals so it must be better! OK, we got 4 gold medals in Tokyo in '64, too. Nowhere has the colour of medals been mentioned. If we got 6 bronze he'd say we got 6 medals. At the end of the day they were...
