IMO, the only thing the USAW can clearly be blamed for is the debacle of a qualifying system we used to pick who got the slots, after changing it- how many times? Its a subjective and hence easily manipulated system- average of this or that. This is of course why I keep saying we need to just use the Golden Standard to pick our squads. Its fair to everyone, consistent, and totally resistant to manipulation. Dennis Snethen (USAW ED)told me he was interested in it. We will see what happens. Other than that, the biggest blame should go to the IWF who through their own ineptitude and/or corruption has allowed doped up teams to keep slots despite multiple positives and obvious systematic doping. Whoever as at fault doesn't matter much to Casey at this point I would guess. This is a real bummer to start off the lifting for the USA but its exactly the kind of crap I have come to expect from the IWF and why I don't even care about lifting in international competitions in the slightest.
