    Like I said...go ahead and bury her.

    Its all good.
    They have buried Alan Webb already...........well he commited suicide several threads ago.
    Sanya actually has WC and Olympic hardware.

    Does Webb?
    It was tongue in cheek comment. But no he doesn't, he is still well accomplished...........thats my point. Being critical of athletes is fair in my opinion, but AGAIN what amounts to attacking athletes I'm not cool with.

    Not many Americans (or people around the world) have accomplished what Webb or Sanya has.[/quote:13qxws54] I see your point guru and I agree. The Webb attacks are unfair as well.

    Sorry for quoting this mods but I'm limited with how much I can edit.

    Bored in a mtg.

    Typing on my G1. ;-)

    TD about the "hypocrits" who come to America and talk bad about the country or arent patriotic.... Please! this land was built on taking from others so its due time others take from the good ol' US of A. You know 95% of the booing is good natured bruh. Jerome Young, Suziann Reid, Donovan Bailey, and etc weren't boo'd so it's not a "traitor" issue.
    Iverson and Reggie Miller are in their 30s.

    Sanya just turned 24.

    America was indeed built by taking something from others.

    What are you building?

    Show me the other threads of athletes who didn't win Oly gold.

    There should be a zillion of them.

    It's unfair but it happens. It does not stop them from succeeding though.

    You make them sound human. Maybe law dude can confirm this?

LOL, certainly in healthcare/Law...thaught in school to put one's feelings, values and beliefs aside and work with information that is presented, to make a constructive and critical decision. This is applied in especially , medicine, Law etc. part of CODE of ETHICS. Just ashame and pittyful.

    What will the world be if we have all people working in medicine and law, are making their feelings, beliefs and values interferring with how they treat someone or representing them? Thankfully, it's just a minority of them are around, and not the majority.
    This is all utter nonsense. Physicians have different degree of emotions. Some get emotionally involved with their patient, some remain more detached. Some jump on every new treatment (testing method) as soon as it is available, some wait awhile to let others check it out first. Some perform certain procedures/order certain treatments, others find them objectionable. Some pray with/for their patients, some find the practice unprofessional. Some will work pro-bono when such a situation arises, some will not.

    Asafa is the only one that might fit that label, because he himself sees the problem in those sorts of terms, but even then, the term, 'choker', is such a non-starter for intelligent discussion.

    So its ok for POwell because he admits it but uncool for everyone because they dont??

    Sportsfanx1 and Paul Henry you don't have to continue to claim not to have anything personal against Sanya.

    Your obsession with her won/loss record and desire to present it in a skewed and misinformed format while calling her names is purely a coincidence.

    Just like the fact that you are a Jamaican is a coincidence.

    Who cares that you bring up things like what you think she "might have said if she lost" in threads discussing her victories?

    There's little doubt that you're both big fans.

    Although you are both Jamaican you are nothing like the Jamaicans who boo her when she runs in Jamaica or the hypocrite Jamaicans who live here too but boo her at Penn because she does. Surely they boo the Jamaicans who move here and join the US military. I mean they're traitors too right? They should live here and not be willing to assist this country in any way outside of taxes like you do...right?

    How dare any Jamaican born person living in the US be caught dead wearing red, white and blue or be willing to lift a finger in the name of America. They can seek US citizenship like you probably did but they only means take...not give.

    So we know you wouldn't boo a young lady who came here like you did at age 12 with her parents .

    You only want to talk track. That's why you make those type comments about other athletes and start these kind of threads about them too...No?

    You have no agenda toward her.

    We're convinced.

    Can't look past these facts, just because she is Sanya Richards, who is like/love by many. I did the same thing with Asafa Powell also

    Making the point no more legit.
