I fail to see how global altruist statistics have anything to do with my personal stance on selection criteria for WWC.
-No, I did not say that. I said "I, for one, would be embarrassed to place out of the top 10, much less the top 25." Beware your quote marks around incorrect quotes, please.
I would be embarrassed to go to the World Championships on the dime of USAW's membership and have nothing (such as points for Olympic Team slots) to show for it. To do so would be to accept a trip but give nothing in return, and that's neither Capitalist nor Objectivist, if I may be so blunt as to point out that little nuance.
It was not a call for breaking the contract between lifter and organization in order for the organization to usurp the slot from the lifter after the contract had been agreed upon, as you have seemed to suggest. Suggestion for a change in the selection procedures for the future? Yes. Suggestion for breaking an existing contract? No.
I said that if people choose to join a team, then they should act in accordance with the best interest of that team.
But you seem to be hedging claiming it is self-interest to not lift when you are not at your best, saying it is irrational to lift hurt.Quote-Now I'm just confused. When did I say that???
-Now I'm just confused. When did I say that???
Why can't the organization take an active role in determining who to spend money on? It's USAW's money. They shouldn't be forced to spend it on people who are unfit to provide a decent return on the investment.
