Rudolf, I don't have a problem with uninformed comment if it's positive. It's the uninformed negative stuff that irks me, and there's plenty of it on this thread.
yes exactly, this is what the problem is :
firstly opionions of pthers are uninformed, Yours is informed, becasue of what ?
secondly dragging in teh polairy - positive and negative.
There is no such thing,
comments are iether correct or incorrect.
But the ones You do not like You label negative/
why do You approve uninformed positive - they are good only to create false egos and false feel of achievements.
If teh comments describes teh reality, the facts as it is, in brutal honesty, maybe not 100% accurate (but nobody is going to be 100% accurate, it is enough to be more accurate than his coach) they could not be labe4led negative.
You know people are pseimist, optimist but they are also people who are realist.
To a pessimist, the realist could be seen as optimist.
To an optimist, the realist could be seen as pesimist.
If there is a problem it needs to exposed and be discussed from every angle possible, to get the clearest puicture there could be.
Only if Yoy brutaly identift the current situation and the reason for the current situation, only than You have a chance to actualy design thje way out of it.
This was not done after Commonwealth Games, not done after Osaka, and YOu now want to prevent this to be done after Beijing.
So we should all stick the heads to teh sand and pray, than next time somehow miraculously it will be OK,
but my feel is that if we all stick heads to the sand we will just all get the buts unprotected kicked again in Berlin, than we will pray for London etc.
There is a time to face the music and say - well this is obviously not working, and if I do not change what I am doing (and likely with whom I am doing it) I am not going to get different outcome.
This is one of the basic rules of NLP.
Obviously here on the forum we can only see, that the curent system, arrangementys, logic etc are not working, we can brutaly describe the situation.
we do not have enough info to track down details to see which parts are not working where the problems are what needs to be changed and how.
We are not attemting to this here we are at first step - to admitt what the situation is.
You call this uninformed and negative, but this does not make ours comment uninformed and negative, this only shows Your personal take and understanding of it and Your attitute to it and to the public discussion.
I am getting the feel here, that in Your view we are only good enough to clap to success but otherwise we should just shut up or at max we are only alowed to say - we are behind You and chearing You for next olympics.
Buster is not the only one underperforming at this olympics actaully appart from Sally and Tamsyn, every other runner is or was, so this attitude of not calling it as it is and pretending etc is not helping the whole running situation in australia at all.
This is attitude not only abouit Buster, this is more serious and having much wider scope.
Supose Buster would have been lucky and squeeze into final, this debate would not exist and we would pretend all is perfect
So I ask again, what time do I need to run to became elegible for comments (not just for the cheers).
