Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

i cant stop looking at the refs expression, clarkson should have done that to the refs in all the games last season where we got gipped of goals, except with a shoe after the game, we dont need another zednik "accident"

I love the initials for World Taekwondo Foundation or whatever... read the last sentence in this paragraph :lol: :lol: :lol:

"This is a strong violation of the spirit of taekwondo and the Olympic Games. The sanctions are the following and are effective immediately: Lifetime ban of the coach and athlete in all championships sanctioned by the (World Taekwondo Federation) and at the same time, all records of this athlete at the Beijing Games will immediately be erased," said the announcer, reading a WTF release.


EDIT: Oops, got beaten to it. Eh whatever.

I watched some of the taekwondo (a Canadian woman won a silver medal in the event). I don't know if it is tradition or what, but one competitor bowed down to her opposition before the match, showing that the top of the headgear has a giant "WTF" ensignia on top. I got a good chuckle out of that.

As for the kicked judge, I think there were quite a few judges this Olympics that deserved a kick in the face more than this guy. There was some really, really, really bad judging in a lot of events... but in this case, the Cuban WAS down for a very long time. I think the official was more than correct in calling the match. Even if he wasn't, you don't kick someone in the face.... I think the Cuban athlete should be arrested by the Chinese authorities and thrown in the worst pit of hell in the country (where they put the Falun Gong).

-=-=-=-=-=-=-

I just read on another site that Iceland could win their first gold medal ever at the summer Olympics. It would be funny and great at the same time to see a country named "ICELAND" win a summer games gold medal. :) It's sorta like the Jamaican bobsled team. :)
