Re: Oracle Team USA forfeits both ACWS season titles
and A-Rod and McGwire and Bonds and.......... it's pathetic.
The problem is the public really doesn't care. Fans need their teams and love their top performers. It's a gladiator kind of thing. Who cares of one person dies as long as it's exciting? I'm not saying I condone that, just saying from this seat, that's what I'm seeing. It's all about winning at all costs.
But should the actions of a few in the 2012 ACWS (where they were sailing AC45s) justify the -2 point penalty in the Cup Match that the Jury handed down to Team Oracle (where they race AC72s)? I can't see the connection.
