I found it very important to clarify things about insults and calling names here.
Long time ago I called Fargo: fat mediocracy, no name coach, realized that I cross the line.
I apologized to him twice PM. Never reply, so I think that guy who do not accept apologize is not very nice one.
On the other hand that same guy calling people liar, idiots, fools without even realizing that might hurt someone.
Putting Frank at even with Fargo is just unfair. When things get out control it is hard to be cool, but I did not saw Frank calling him names, did someone?
So I just call that guy Fargo, makes jokes about him, but never call him idiot, and apologize once again:D
So the question here is: Who is the guy here who really insults people?
IMHO, coach Fargo (even here he would be out of coach license) all the time.
I just do not care, but will never gave a kid coaching by sucha angry man, who do not accept apologize.
P.S. Not even in my wildest dreams, I did not tell someone how he should do mod job or criticise him:D Sorry to hijack thread once again:eek:
...couldn't agree more with your assessment of our dear friend...( and just think of all the cycliing careers this man has ruined...and we all know that given the attitude he has displayed here that has happened...and probably repeatedly)
...and if I could add one point....
....I find it supremely ironic that our dear friend is acting just like those wonderful scientists who used their carefully crafted peer reviewed studies to beat Arthur Lydiard over the head for all those years....and he is apparently a self-professed Lydiard fan...
...and just to add one more thought....from where I'm sitting our dear friend is actually much worse than those wonderful scientists because given his knowledge of what happened to Lydiard he should know better...but evidently he hasn't thought that thru and that unfortunately undercuts everything he purports to be fighting for( which in the broad sense is supposed to be science and the method it is based on)...in fact I really feel that at the base level he is not fighting for anything, he is just fighting( and in so doing acting like the most common garden variety fundamentalist)... and thru his paticipation this, and other related threads, have suffered mightily for it...
