    Speaking of what is or isn't legit, this surely isn't:

    4 guys in the same meet today, faster than Frank Fredicks's 19.92 indoor world record in the 200m. 19.50, 19.70, 19.90, 19.90....

    No company is going to banned. Only specific shoes may be banned.

    And I don't want innovation in shoe technology for foot races. I want innovation in training methods, not competition equipment.

    Drop the "male" and "female" wording, or it will be increasingly difficult to fend off the attacks by people who think social definitions of male and female should be applicable.

    The hardcore advocates don't care, but removing the gender-based descriptors of sports divisions would greatly weaken their argument of "I identify as female therefore I must be allowed to compete in...

    As it has been said before in another thread, they need to drop the male/female/men/women/boys/girls designations and change them to genderless words like "high T" and "low T", or this gender...

    It may be a straw man, but it seems to be a very motivating factor among people who don't get competitive high school sports. They probably view high school sports as equivalent to when some friends...

    Seems kinda shady, but at least that would give the IAAF more revenue than my plan which is simply to not watch DL meets unless they're on the regular NBC channel on TV or the Olympic Channel.

    Supporting the sport and paying NBC for an overpriced package are not the same thing. The athletes aren't getting any piece of the extra 33% NBC is going to charge in 2020.

    Paying NBC won't support track & field. It's because of them the Diamond League events got cut, and now they expect us to pay 33% more. Better to boycott NBC and let the IAAF know they shouldn't be...
