ReverendJasen: Fark the IOC. Fark Russia too.
kbronsito: FIFA is going to be watching them. For now they've done the same BS song and dance as the IOC over the 2018 World Cup, saying that the event is not political and that russia can do whatever. But if there is a scandal at Sochi, i don't think FIFA would want to take a risk for the 2018 World Cup.
grimlock1972: ReverendJasen: Fark the IOC. Fark Russia too.so much this. Russia should be stripped of the Olympics and barred from getting then again until they get their heads out of thier arse.and no they can't have their bribes back either.I will not be watching the games and just check medal counts online.
LemSkroob: Why do we insist on giving the Olympics to savages lately? Chiana, Russia, Brazil, etc...
ReverendJynxed: Just like the athletes shouldn't be openly hetero. Compete, and keep your bedroom affairs in the bedroom.
kbronsito: Even the white silver medalist (i think he was Canadian... to lazy to look up) was kicked off his own team and not allow to compete again for supporting what his fellow medalist did. That farker doesn't really get enough credit in that story but that single act of solidarity makes him a farking hero.
JesusJuice: OK, now it's seriously time to boycott the Olympics and its sponsors.

That farker doesn't really get enough credit in that story but that single act of solidarity makes him a farking hero.His name was Peter Norman. He was Australian and he was in on and totally okay with the other two doing it - apparently the black gloves were his idea. The thing was, Australia wasn't very progressive (we were still using the White Australia immigration policy at the time) and didn't appreciate having one of their own so publicly support equality. Norman got blacklisted from all Australian sporting events for it - they didn't even call him back to do a lap of honour at the Sydney Olympics like they did with all their other past medallists.
