    The refereeing in the women's basketball last night was absolutely shocking! Quite possibly cost us our 18th gold.

    I'm not too dissimilar a batsman to Bradman.
    Both of us have batting averages below 100.

    I have to add more annoyance at the drugs, the women's shotput gold medal winner being disqualified afterwards was REALLY annoying, a NZer came 9th with throws short of her PB, and she was promoted to 8th after the disqualification so she should have got 3 more throws, but instead she finished outside the top 8 on the day.

    That moron who tackled the Brazilian marathon runner while he was in the lead and IMO he would have won Gold if he wasn't tackled.

    thats the one

    Sportal
    "The Athens Olympics finished with a security scare that possibly denied a marathon runner victory, as British serial pest and religious zealot Neil Horan ran onto the road toward the end of the race and tackled the leader.

    Horan made a nuisance of himself at last year's British Formula One Grand Prix by running onto the track at Silverstone and also attempted to disrupt this year's London Marathon."

    He showed true Olympic spirit IMO (unlike some people prior to the Games, and actually at the games...)

    However, the reports I've read suggest that he was being rapidly caught by the Italian and was unlikely to take Gold anyway!
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
