This is not a vent board or any other kind of therapy. Before you hit the POST button, ask yourself if your contribution will add to the level of discussion going on.
Important notes on articles:
- Please do not copy entire articles into your post; rather, provide links to them.. We are now links-only for ALL Internet publications. If only a small portion of the article pertains to your post, Fair Use allows you to copy those one or two paragraphs, provided you cite the author's name and the publication for which he writes. Otherwise, put a link in the HTTP Link box.
- Even if you're copying a reference to an article, provide a link to the page from which the article came. We're trying to cut down on duplicate topics, and the posting process will check the link to your article to see if it's already being discussed on this board. At the very least, you'll save yourself some grief on the boards.
- If your first reaction after reading the article you're going to share is the author is uninformed / stupid / a jerk / all of the above, it's not worth sharing with anyone. Not every article needs to be discussed. The more the hair-pulling articles are discussed (e.g. ESPN Page 2), the more the authors will write hair-pulling articles.

Here's my problem with it by DakotaDomer
I think it's ridiculous to tell Douglas, Kocian, or Hernandez that they don't belong on this team.
Hernandez has the silver medal position after qualifying on the Balance Beam (she had the 4th best floor exercise but won't be allowed to even compete)
Kocian has the gold medal position after qualifying on the uneven bars
Douglas has the bronze medal position in the uneven bars and in the all-around where she will not be allowed to compete
But one of these 3 shouldn't be at the olympics at all? What a crock of shit. ALl 3 of them are probably going to take home individual medals
