    Except really, what a "lovely" dilemma that is to have...

    And the pedant in me is annoyed that he constantly refers to Chryste GAINS too.... :twisted:

    And that's a problem how???

    I'd rather no medal at all than a tainted one.

    As a side note, I'm reading his autobiography at the moment. It really is a ROTTEN piece of literature- there's an awful lot of excusing and moaning (not least a foreword slagging off The Big O and that situation like it's identical) and lots of things you have to read between the lines about (My particular favourite being (and I paraphrase...) "I really fancied Kelly Holmes, but although we had a good night out on a date when we went on, I knew it would never happen between us for some reason. She lived with her female flatmate and their dogs in BLAH BLAH BLAH... :roll: ").
    Oh Dwain, you're breaking my heart :roll:

    Do you know, I don't actually care if Chambers is in the 4x100 team or not- he is in the individual which is "bad" enough, albeit still by the rules, and I maintain that if it works for other countries, it should work for us.

    However, having said that, I do think that, as my dear Flumpy pointed out earlier, it's the worry of losing other medals for me- the medals he lost his other teammates was bad enough, but to be given the chance to do it again...whether or not he is clean now (And I believe he is...)

    Just so you know, I got it out of the library so I didn't give the man a PENNY towards paying back his debts... :lol:

    i'd rather we won no medals than any by chambers i wouldn't count it as an accomplishment to win medals with drug cheats

    They will drop the baton so it doesn't matter.

    And before anybody parrots that ludicrous "explanation" that they're building a team for 2012, will Marlon Devonish be competing in London at the age of 36 years old?
    It's not 'disgusting' it's common sense. It's not like anyone was expecting him to be selected and he's suddenly been snubbed. It was well documented that he wasn't being picked.

    I'll tell ya what is disgusting..................

    The omission of Chambers from the 4x1 is disgusting. The head of their olympic committee finally went against outside pressure and allows Chambers to run. But now they don't put him on the relay. You give your team the best chance to win. All those winey b!tch youngsters who are complaining that Chambers is a cheater need to shut their pie holes. The man served his time for his crime. Now he is back, and make no mistake about it, Chambers is their fastest/best 100 meter runner. Regardless of Williamson beating him at the Championships. Chambers does what he does, with hardly any meets. He has been black balled so he doesn't get the race experience. I guarantee he will be their fastest sprinter at the Worlds in the 100 meters, and he will be sub 10. They give themselve a good shot at silver if they let Chambers run. If they don't, they might not get the bronze.
