There has been a lot of talk of judges favoring the chinese, which sucks, you never want to hear that kinda shit in the olympics. But after watching a few of the boxing matches in question, and seeing the scores its tough to defend the judges. The scoring in boxing is so piss poor to begin with, but it was pretty ridiculous in both those matches.

As far as age goes, I think everyone needs to follow the rules. That being said, there really is no way to gauge how old the girls are. The birth certs could say they are 25 and no one can challenge that. So if they are "cheating" screw that, we should have been good enough to beat them anyway. The f'd up part is we could have, and should have, but that one girl just had a bad day ....

I would "console" her as well monsta, I dig athletic chics hahaha.

Anyone that plays in a sport takes their chances. I know I've officiated games where someone thought I was favoring sides. I never set out to do it, and the judges in the olympics are from all over. Hard to claim they are all on the take. I mean, it isn't like the cold war era where the easter block countries would score their people 9.5 and then score the Brits like a 4.2, while the French would score the Brits a 9.6 and score the Czech a 3.8. I mean, really? Can't we at least TRY to hide our disdain at that point?

Frankly I have always found it to be bad show to point fingers at how you were wronged. If you don't want it to be close, stomp a mud hole in your competition and then there will never be a doubt. Until then you were close be the gods didn't favor you that day.

Not for the squeamish.....

Ouch!!!

I've been enjoying the Olympics when I can. The other night I just found a bunch of hi-def cable channels that are carrying the games. The call letters are OLY1, OLY2...OLY5.

Well, you gotta admire his "accepting nothing less than the best" attitude

On the other hand, tell me that she isn't the cutest weight lifter ever! Canada rocks! http://sports.yahoo.com/olympics/bei...1991936385%3A1
