    Could make it U23 a la the Olympics.
    Nah, it's bad enough that football's in the Olympics.

    Cricket not being there's a strange one. Some great wee grounds in and around Glasgow as well. Would have been great fun with our Asian population as well.

    Great win for the Saffers over NZ in the 7's. First time NZ have lost any match at Comm Games.

    Kinda agree with the "It's not the Olympics" sentiment, but hey, it's sport.

    All valid questions I thought. I mean, as a man of the world, Usain Bolt should be up with the People's Front of Scotlandindependia and how they fair in their fight against the splitters of the Scotlandindependia Peoples Front. I'd also like to know about his thoughts in the wash up of the silly walk controversy and the **** of the year doping scandal.

    Wow, double faulting in the first round of the decathlon has to be one of the stupidest things I have ever seen in athletics.

    Interesting that boxing has done away with headgear

    Amateur styles will have to change to accommodate it

    Yeah but the thing about the Olympics is that most of the sport is a bit rubbish but you enjoy them because it is the Olympics.

    Kenya being good at running, as per usual. Not quite as thrilling without the Green and gold of Ethiopia to compete against. Then again Australia are on slouches on the mid and long distance track.
