I give her credit for coming out and saying what she did, whether i agree with everything she said, you have to tip your cap to her for attempting to improve a bad situation in sports, and especially Track & Field. How many others have done the same ? exactly.. not many.. No one to be looked at as that person, so again, thanks Kate.
Whether you agree or not, she vocalizes valid points and throws out possibilities that no one would dare say in public.
Im not ready to let Marion in my Track club just yet, but you can see her points regarding all of sports and how the public has allowed and warranted whether knowingly or not.. I mean cmon, do we need to mention the WWF,etc. This is a drug factory on wheels, but its fans want to see this. How exciting will it be like she said when our best thrower is throwing 66-68. Just making a point, meaning we want to see big marks in all sports.. so, it has become a vicious cycle.. At what point does it end ? Where do we draw the line, and realize that we are all part of the problem we dont like in sports. As im saying this, i have to ask myself the same question. If im so against drugs in the throws, etc, can i say the same about my cowboys or yankees ? What if my favorite cowboy receiver didnt look like arnold and caught half as many balls because the DB would pound him off the line ? Can i deal with this..
All questions we have to ask ourselves..
Anyway, again, whether you agree or not, have some appreciation for what she said in public in an attempt to open peoples eyes on this subject which we are oh so passionate about.. Just my opinion..
