    Can't argue with that reasoning Dickson. And which is why, as hypocritical, as it may be, I have Gatlin on my fantasy list.
  2. Yes he is a fantastic sprinter. And yes Gatlin is...

    Yes he is a fantastic sprinter. And yes Gatlin is acting fully within his rights and so you can't blame him for exercising his entitlement to those rights. And of course you are entitled to be...

    The USA did not bring Gatlin and Jones down. They were brought down by themselves; by their taking of PED's.

    Your challenge to name another nation is presuming that the top athletes in other...

    THE USA does not and would not allow other countries to do the same to US citizens. This can be seen in the way the USA refuses to allow its soldiers to be arrested and tried for crimes they have...

    Because, as Putin says, the USA believes it has the right to be the policeman of the whole world and in every country.

    As Boond says the site is pretty crap - great idea - crap execution. I still have my selection for Ibarguen in as she was on my Shanghai team. So even though the event is not listed (yet??) on the...

    I have this theory that if the IAAF powers that be want top increase the world wide interest in TNF then fiddling with the way events are run, such as downtown shot putting, just won't do it.

    What...

    I am happy - I improved over Doha. 153 points, up from 127 points. My total is now 280 points. Moved up from = 591st to =280th. 11th on the TNF Message Board team. I see LopenUupunut is =33rd...

    The odds suggest that Bracy will succeed financially on a par with most world class athletes - in other words after he pays all of his expenses he won't make anything - unless he reaches the level of...

    Because you raised the issue of Olympic Gold Medals.

    The world relays is, in terms of real importance, a complete non-event. The only relays that mean anything are the WC and Olympics. And right now Jamaica still occupies those thrones. Beijing will...

    NEXT EGG?? What nest egg. He is now the 52nd best 100m sprinter in history. This is TNF not the NFL/NBA/EPL/MLB/La Liga.

    An excellent 3rd leg by Gatlin - but it doesn't mean diddly in terms of a measurable performance because it is a relay

    I love it when people do selective filtering for designing their "total package". First, however, let me say that, drugs or no drugs, and even though I am not a fan of Gatlin, he was and is a great...

    While I share some of the sentiments expressed by that open letter writer, I don't have anytime for people who do so anonymously - and that letter appears to be anonymous.

    But he is not the fastest world champion that the USA has produced.

    This is the part that puzzles me. I don't know how the travel costs / airfares work for the athletes. I am sure the lesser lights have to stump up all their own costs. And the top echelon athletes...

    Don't know. I haven't talked to his old man for a few months as our season finished here a couple of months back. I understood he was in Sweden but not too sure on that.

    Like you I wish he would...

    As most posters know I am no great supporter of Gatlin. However, on the surface, his treatment by the Beijing organisers was appalling and unwarranted.

    A silly comment methinks. The thrones for the 100m are the Olympic title, the WC title and the WR. Last time I checked Bolt held all three.

    While Felix is, at the moment, a deserved favourite, I don't see how you can justify the tag of "HUGE" favourite.

    Felix's 21.98 with +1.5w and last year's 22.02 +o.1w would seem to be inferior to...
