RE: Way to show your olympic spirit
i always thought it was always gonna be shit

the minute it was awarded to beijing, china would've scoured the entire country for any 8-15 year olds with ANY athletic potential and had them in militaristic training camps grinding them to the bone...so basically the whole thing's gonna be flooded with chinese athletes and just not make it a fair competition

i hope i'm proved wrong (that's if any countries bother to turn up now!) but sadly i think i won't be

afaik it was the police who extinguished the flame in Paris and decided to do the journey on a bus for peoples safety, I'm quite pleased to see people taking a stand actually, and be honest very few people give a damn about the olympics these days, why should we have spirit?

I thought the olympics were about putting aside political differences and compete on an unbiased platform.

Everything is politics. And good, its about time the leaders of the western countries realised there are people who are sick of the way the Chinese government do things, no matter how cheap they make things for us.

There's so many things wrong with that sentence....being a sports scientist i should launch into a CookieRevised style essay reply, but i'm simply gonna say that there's been political boycotts of the olympics virtually every games since the 1950s

and as for it being an unbiased platform, there's been cheating in numerous forms (drugs, bribrery, equipment tampering) since the olympics began

i can only hope that your reply was laced with huge quantities of sarcasm that are undetectable over the internet if not.....then *sigh*

Either you misquoted or you really don't understand him in the slightest. :S

The Olympics SHOULDN'T be about political differences or be biased, you're trying to say that it should be or something?

but then I have my opinions about sports 'scientists'.

Oh also on defense of Svip, there is nothing wrong with his sentence at all, it even has a full stop at the end. :) Whereas there are things wrong with yours in the first 3 words. :P
