    I had accepted that I was banned for life, even though I was somewhat miffed that "druggies" who were also supposedly banned for life were being reinstated. I was, I think, the last of the ITA...

    Should College Athletes Be Paid?

    An excellent article on the TNF front page "The Day's Best Reading"

    I am one of those who believes that College athletes:

    Should not be paid; but

    They should be able to get full scholarships...

    Agree totally - and it is unfair and pathetic of the IAAF to use Schippers in this way.
    A pity Lord Coe doesn't use his influence to also criticise his colleagues for such an obvious race inspired...

    For what its worth I think she is the best bet for being #1 in both sprints next year.

    I think to be AOY one should at least be a strong #1 in at least one event.

    Schippers is not close to #1 in either the heptathlon or 100m. There are solid arguments for her to be #1 in the 200m,...

    There are good arguments for all 3. Schippers was indeed as impressive as anybody; her primary goal was presumably the Europeans. She won both. But, besides Schippers, the Europeans did not have the...

    I agree Schippers had an impressive 200m sprint season. And taking into account the wind, I would agree that her 22.03 with a -0.5 wind was probably the best performance of the year; definitely...

    Under the rules in play today, I agree with you that Gatlin should have been in the top 3. However, I am one of those who hope Harting's protest stunt bears fruit and confirmed dopers do not qualify...

    I fail to understand why you think Schippers had an AOY great sprint season. She was #13 performer for the 100m; she had zero of the top 25 performances for the 100m. Tories Bowie had a better sprint...

    Always difficult to know how to assess marathon runners when they often only have 1 performance, or 2 at the most. Kimeto's performance is far, far in front of Gatlin. In saying that I am not trying...

    I am no fan of Gatlin, but IMO he probably should have been in the top 3 because of Barshim losses.
