Boat Race

Recommended Posts

I'm so cross with that idiot swimming into the boat race. :evil: I assume he has no idea how hard those guys train and how he wrecked any chance of a good race. Hope the Oxford bowman that was taken ill at the end is ok :shock:

What an idiot. He could have been killed ... or been responsible for someone-else's death or injury.

 

I think it would have been sensible to delay the rematch.

What a hypocrite. He apparently went to Eton and has benefitted from elitism. Very ignorant and has spoilt the fun of all types of people from all around the world. It's disrespectful of the sportsmen and women who work so hard and to everyone who enjoys this sport.

There are protest camps ready to disrupt the Olympics, they don't understand that people need things like sport and music, especially in difficult times. The Romans got it.

What a selfish idiot.

A total disgrace :evil: I don't care about the background of those competing, they are sportsmen and women and worked very hard for this race. The whole thing was ruined by some hypocrite who wanted their five minutes of fame :evil: I feel for the poor chap that lost the oar and the guy that collapsed :(

I'm not confident that I was right about that. I saw it in a short angry rant on-line but I can't find that now and I haven't seen any other reference to Eton. It might have been wrong.

He should be made to do a 13 week basic training course with the Army, as a starter, then train with Mathew Pincent for a few weeks.

Perhaps then he'd have a perspective of what he has done to two teams of committed sports persons.

I cannot use words I'd like to.

What he really needs is no publicity at all. The media should have kept the coverage to the boat race only and not mentioned him by name at all or shown his photo. He should not benefit from this act in any way.

 

If you remember there was a guy a few years ago who did similar things - running out in front of marathon runners to make his point.

 

Unfortunately there is no way to stop this type of stupid behaviour

I couldn't agree more. I've only just caught up with this as I have been away, and I am appalled at his selfish and dangerous behaviour.
