Members zara59 Posted April 28 Members Share Posted April 28 I seriously find it incredibly Ridiculous about Freddy becoming ineligible. From an outside view it seems as though this is almost a targeted response to what I see as a non issue. I don’t think you can Blame an athlete for becoming emotional on a particular terrible judging call, that has rendered your whole life dedication to the sport as such a small thing. Could you imagine if a tennis player who smashes his racket is banned for that event and the whole of next years event, or a race driver slamming his helmet down. Emotion is apart of sport. It’s the reason it is so good, and why we keep coming back. To punish emotion is the beginning of the end. The organisation is acting like our sport is this huge national tv sponsored show, when in reality we are so tiny and insignificant as a sport, that this kind of action just seems down right stupid. I think for Nautique to take this action is an extremely bad move on their part. Banning an athlete that just so happens to not be sponsored by them, but letting a certain other controversy that happened previous with a Nautique athlete go unchecked in terms of a ban from there titles events, comes across as down right targeting. All in all I think that if the effort put into this whole situation was directed towards actually growing and benefiting our sport, then we would be moving forward not backwards. It’s definitely a sad state of affairs and shows us in a very poor light as a whole. Apologies for the rant, I would rather be posting about how amazing it is to see new events popping up with huge viewership, but here we are. 8 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
