    Please present a complete sentence to this message board.>

    You removed a phrase from my complete sentence. I'll bet you that I have better command of grammar in , say, four languages than you have in your mother tongue.

      Pego, I'm with you 100%. But, of course, your linguistic & grammatical skills are sure signs of generational obsolescence. Clarity of thought has become increasingly unhip...

        This thread displays pefectly why people like you ( M. Lewis. Pego. kuha1 ), will cause the end of T&F News in the next 5 years. Why would any elite ruuner want to participate with this magazine . Maybe GH can respond to this. The chance for any positive publicity is offset by a message board calling Blond athletes stupid, promising runners out of highschool have threads and threads high lighting failures... people calling highschool kids cheaters because they look too old. Is this not true Gary H , when your at major events , do the elites' agents debate weather its a good thing or bad thing to be the focus of your mag? I would think someone like Alan Webb , would not care a lick if this Mag fell off the face of the earth. GH do you see anything at all positive on your message board ?

          look at the Pre's Parents thread, the stuff from Spivey and Cambell, the good discussions on rule changes, the what's your top ten thread, etc, etc. it doesn't look like you've even peaked at the historical board. you're just checking into the board at the worst time of the year for any t&f forum. darkwing and many others have/had the same ebb and flow.

            U of C

            Have you looked at sites like letsrun.com and the iaaf forums? This site is easily the classiest with the majority of users being highly knowledgable. I bet many elite athletes take a peek here and would never dream of unsubscribing from T&F News.

            Regarding "weather", it's raining here in LA.

              U of C: This is my last post on this thread. To be perfectly honest, your comments are so inarticulate that I'm honestly not sure what it is that you are complaining about. Is it that "everything" here is negative? Well, some small fraction of it may be, but that's it--there's FAR less negativity here than, for example, on Letsrun. You seem to be saying, for example, that "all" 50-somethings are bashing Blond runners, and SFH in particular. There HAS been some low-level Suzy-bashing of late, but I would point out that I, for one, have defended her (as if she really needed it) and have called for an end to such comments (which clearly were intended to be humorous, not vicious.) You also seem to suggest that all "elite ruuners [sic]" should be given "positive publicity" on this board. Why in the world would you or anyone else expect that? Do leading figures in ANY endeavor expect to receive nothing but "positive publicity"? Get real. The posters on this board tend to have been involved with the sport for many years--or even decades. They are passionate and knowledgable about it. Passion and knowledge may well lead to diverse opinions and viewpoints, but the goal is to keep it all friendly and lively. This is fun, after all, it's not life and death. I have yet to be convinced that the 20-something generation has any better answers to things than their parents' did. My gentle advice: cool off and grow up.

                "Spending your Christmas determining how STUDID M. Lewis is , is not productive."

                Right. Apparently the book has already been written, so U of Whogivesafuck can maybe turn his frightening intellect to real thesis material, such as:

                "This thread displays pefectly why people like you ( M. Lewis. Pego. kuha1 ), will cause the end of T&F News in the next 5 years."

                My theory, by Ewe of See.

                  Well, I guess, if something goes wrong with the T&FN in the foreseeable future, there is somebody to be blamed. Are you listening, Garry? It's Michael, Kuha1 and me. U of C, how absurd can you get?!

                    Garry should be listening. Subscriptions must be pretty dreadful at T&F News. T&F News are purchasing add banners on the "LetsRun" web forum
                    site. Check it out, the T&F Banner directly above the"LetsRun" thread , " Will masterbating before a race, slow performance". Things must be getting desperate in the sales office. Directly under the Banner, the follow-up thread, "Why does T&F News cost $45.00 a year?" Pretty interesting reponse's I must say. I hope Garry is listening to what the 18-34 demographic have to say. If they don't buy the Mag it will not exist .

                      That ad wasn't purchased by T&FN. It is a third party. See the link- http://www.valuemags.com/home/details.asp?MagID=1069

                      Plus banner ad placement is usually randomized so their (valuemags.com) ad might appear on the best letsrun thread for one user and the worst letsrun thread for the next.

                        Sorry to keep correcting you but subs are sold by the circulation department, not the sales department. I doubt "weather" or not you care, but I'd suggest you'd stick to the high level debates on letsrun, the masturbating threads for instance would probably be more your thing.

                          "I hope Garry is listening to what the 18-34 demographic have to say. If they don't buy the Mag it will not exist ."

                          Sorry, but my experience in retail has been that the Boomers have the money. The magazine will exist because those age 35-60 have the ability to pay $45/year w/o blinking. Those who complain about $45/yr. subscription are not the subscribers the advertisers covet. If $45/yr. hurts you you have bigger issues.

                          Subscription revenue is only part of the equation - add in trips (not many 20 year olds likely pony up the $$ to take a T&FN trip to Athens) and advertising revenue (T&FN is a specialty mag. w/specialty ads) and you have the T&FN top line revenue. If every 18-34 year old quit subscribing tommorrow I am sure the magazine would survive - not that we don't want 18 year old subscribers - just don't expect there are many. And those that are subscribing at 18 - thanks!

                          That said, I am willing to step aside and let U of C have a crack at it, she and Sprintman can lead the way! I'm too friggin' old.

                            marknhj, Maybe you could explain to this fine collection of humans why Weldon Johnson banned you from LetRun. I must admit , all the 12 year olds enjoyed your letsrun thread, " How many days can you go without taking a shower?"
                            You still have this site and Dyestat dude.

                              "Subs" are sold at retail outlets like Mr. Submarine, or Subs are Us. Sorry to correct you old man, but get out of the house more often. The "circulation department" has more to do with the masturebation thread you are fixated on.

                                Youth is wasted on the young. Sometimes brains are wasted on the unwise but I don't think that is anything you need to worry about.
