    I agree. And this way they can stop all of that boring and often painful training crap, freeing up tons of time for more important things, like tweeting.

    But the girls behind her didn't get to raise their hands in victory, completely unfair! The only solution is no more competition. Just like real life.

    Only if they are moronic dumbshit bureaucrats or minions thereof. For whatever reason they seem to congregate at the NFHS. Other large folks I have no issues with.

    Obviously every one of the people who write and enforce the rules weigh at least 300 lbs.

    Dumb Officials

    In high school competition the referee of the meet can always over rule a call that another official made. Where was the proper judgement in this case? I have been a high school coach for many years. When I first started, in 1969 there were no uniform rules or jewelry rules. Some of the rules made sense, but some made no sense. When they passed a rule that runners singlets had to be tucked in at the start of races. I asked a veteran official that when auto timing was being done that made sense, but why was that rule passed in other cases. He felt that it was probably because in other sports the top had to be tucked in. In NJ in a state meet a kid was dqed for wearing a necklace. It wasn't spotted until the kid crossed the finish line in first place. The newspapers in South Jersey pilloried the decision. As a result in NJ, the violation has to be reported before the gun goes off in the case of uniform and jewelry infractions. If it is spotted later, nothing happens to the kid. A number of officials were unhappy, but the coaches were relieved. I guess we shouldn't be surprised at stupid decisions being made, because look at the world. Why should track and field be exempt from idiots? NO other province of the world is.

    While I would tend to agree with the sentiment on what we know, I'd suspect there's more to the story. We've heard one side.
    True. We should hear the other side and then draw and quarter the official. :evil:
    For being officious as opposed to being an official. There is a difference.

    Re: HS DQs, Part 114

    The more I read about these situations it is becoming clearer and clearer that the rules are not the problem. The interpretation of the rules, however, is a big problem.

    Either through stupidity or, worse, through design, we are seeing kids DQ'ed for no good reason. What a great way to turn kids off track and field.

    Do we have the IOC to blame for this - I bet these guys agreed with their idiotic opinions vis a vis Bolt.
