Weighing In

You can post a comment or two on this crappy site and a few hundred folks might give it a look.

Have you thought about letting your voice be heard by thousands of swim fans?

Registering for Swimming World's Reaction Time membership is free.

Once you're a member, you can vent there at Swimming World - for the whole swimming world to read!

Here's a recent comment on their relay take-off judging post:

April 11, 2011 I don't understand why these articles are posted. To what end? To show that in our sport it takes several years of wrangling to finally, possibly, do the right thing?

Oy veh!

I feel for all the level-headed, hard-working, young athletes who take part in our sport, only to realize that, when it counts most, they can't expect the adults to exercise common sense and fair play.

By the way, there's no money in this bloggin' deal. No ads. No incentive for linking to other sites. Heck, I don't even get a free sample of TriSwim shampoo thrown my way.

Ain't complainin', though - that's how it outta be. It's wonderful to be independent!

Let's laugh a little. Learn a little. Vent a little. Whatever floats yer danged boat, alright?

Okay, that's enough ramblin' fer now. Scroll back up and git yerself registered. Let yer voice be heard.

Just lay off the cursin', will ya?

There are already several comments - including one that clearly doesn't know what happened in 2010.

Maybe this guys comments show that many of the teams just take the word of the officials as gospel and feel that those that complain like Southlake are whiners. But in reality if they looked at their own video/photo etc. or talked to their relay teams they would find that the very same thing happened to them. Hopefully this will be eyeopening to some.

Thanks for posting the link, Button. Much appreciated for all you do for the kids.

The NFHS indicated that they did not "take up this rule proposal" in part because no one really uses this equipment and therefore no one really cares. For those that care about the outcome - make sure to comment. For those that just want this to go away - make sure to comment - the sooner the rule changes, the sooner this goes away :).

I don't think this is a crappy site at all! Keep up the fine work.
