It's worth noting that the Germans, who took the gold, slid right before the Canadians. So they too would have been affected by any adverse conditions. But judging by how the Germans have dominated the World Cup circuit, they may have been strong enough to overcome anything.

End of debate.

meh, we missed by >< that much. It happens. Our coach needs to STFU unless he's got proof.

It's Russia. They need to show proof that something like that is not going on in each sport.

This is Russia, so blaming vodak is most certainly an option.

Exactly.

I'm going to need to see strong evidence of not cheating, non-corruption and a few million peasants that you didn't kill to build the place before I'm convinced.

"Christie said these kinds of complaints are commonplace in international luge competition, but they are almost impossible to prove. That it comes the day after Canada's luge team recorded another heartbreaking fourth-place finish doesn't help the case.  "


Call me crazy but couldn't the IOC....monitor the temperature of the track?

Clearly it slowed down the Germans.

You know what else slowed down the Germans?

I love this headline because I was listening to "Won't get fooled again" when I started reading it, so it fit perfectly.


YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

They got that free goal in hockey, they should probably keep chugging their maple syrup and stfu.
 
2014-02-14 04:07:46 PM
I guess you could say the Canadians are going to make like a tree and... Leaf.

YEEEEEEAAAAAAAAHHHH!

Home ice advantage....didn't seem to bother the Germans.

Canadians have gotten awfully whiny.

When did my fellow Canadians get so whiny? We came 4th. Get better or STFU.

So you show the goal that would have made it, in reality, 2-1, and then Americans came back and scored to make it what would have been a 2-2 tie? What's your point?

Since Nickelback. Who paved the way for Beiber

I see every time Canada doesn't win now they're going to accuse the other country of cheating.

Yet we could go back in history and note that Canada has never been as good as they were when THEY were running the Olympics...cheaters.

canadians have always been whiny.

Wouldn't the friction from the previous sleds actually have heated the track?

Had enough time really elapsed that even if they did cool it, it would have caused a slowing effect?

Seriously take your loss with good grace and shut it unless you have some serious proof and not something you made up in your head.
 
2014-02-14 10:17:43 PM
Ya as a Canadian I still feel keep yer trap shut until you have proof. Mind you it's not like the Russians haven't been caught cheating before. So either way wouldn't shock me at all.

nastyboi: 98K514: Canadians have gotten awfully whiny.

It's true ... we are.  It's our one fault, and is balanced against how brave and handsome we are (or pretty, as the case may be, and often in appropriately so - i.e pretty guys - handsome ladies).

If the Germans ran on the same track and won - within the same time period as the Canadian lugers -- the Canadian lugers should STFU.
