I failed to buy into it as soon as he started ripping on the South Korean gymnasts. They have a legitimate gripe, and the appeals process is there for a reason.

Good thing, too. The ruling came down today that the South Koreans are right--their guy should have had the extra tenth, and should have been awarded the gold. Results won't change after the fact, but they were right on.

To put it another way, if the American had been shafted like this and filed a protest, this same writer would be bitching about everything is a fix and Americans are being prejudiced against.

Not a terribly good article, in my mind.
