    It was a bit disappointing when Bayley said that he didn't have much to achieve after getting those two golds in Athens. It's a fair point.... but it would probably be better to sort out motivation problems a year ago... rather than bring 'em up straight after getting knocked out. Hope he gets it together for one last go in London. Is he a spent force?

    Just so I don't get accused of thinking I'm a farken expert at everything... I know next to nothing about Ryan Bayley.

    Fixed it for ya. Hahaha [​IMG]

    The swimmers have already come and had a little sooks about not getting enough money. For us not to have a gold in the pool in the mens is pretty ordinary.

    It's not the 1st time he's mentioned it, I think as close as 12 mths ago he'd pretty much decided he wouldn't ride...motivation is a tough one, his coach shoulda been onto that awhile ago as a potential 'limiter' for success. It's hard for the athlete as well, cos you always have this nagging thought in your head that you're just being slack, so often you'll have athletes competing bexcause they feel guilty about NOT competing...again, at this level, i woulda thought the AIS coaches woulda been onto it long ago...it's almost a given he was gunna have issues like this, especially cos he's a little 'alternate' to start with....the coaches needed to find the trigger to motivate him other than solely 'winning a gold medal'...I reckon they've farked up (unless of course, Ryan is an absolute psycho that already has them at theri wits end!) :D

    We're so far behind in our delayed coverage here in the leading nation of the free universe that we got the ladies' bymnastics floor exercise going on... and I'm not sure if it's Beijing or Athens?

    I can't understand how they avoid injuring their ankles and feet more with the amount of landings they do from height.

    Someone mentioned in the US press that the west coast is so far behind with its delayed TV coverage... that the Chinese girl gymnasts are actually 16 years old by the time we see them.

    So much to say and such meagre resources for the job at hand.

    Firstly, I haven't had much time for thelympicks yet
    can someone provide linkys for decent video of the races in question?

    you forget, his preference of the "two piece feed" is two be sandwiched between two sets of legs, not KFC, the Meares :D

    I remember his coach saying his riding style was like a monkey humping a beach ball or something like that.

    Secondly, Liggett is an icon, and should be revered as such.
    But he's caught whatever old age disease eventually spoke for Murray Walker
    and as far as I can tell he's also nearly blind,
    so he need a sharpeyed wingman with enough balls to tell the Boss what's going on. That's not an easy job. We are a hard audience. But someone's gotta do it.
    English speaking cycling fans deserve better.
