Ok...So since the news broke of the doping violation of Jim, I have seen maybe 30 articles from around the country all saying this and that about what has gone on. Most of these articles are based on of 2 pieces which first broke the news. The Al Cameron story in the Calgary Herald and our story here at the Wheelchair curling blog 2. With that I have taken countless emails as to why I have not been posting all these articles on the website.
Emails like:"...you should at least post the articles so we can get all the information from all the prespectives."
Well folks, you have all the information, nothing is being held back by us and prespective is what it is...What ever you the reader makes of it. But in all fairness I did post one of these articles (removed) It told nothing more than what we told you, in fact it is one of the more cruder stories I have seen posted, moreover the references and language we posted it and we made a bad choice. I want to be fair to all both the good articles and the bad ones. The circumstances are what they are and everyone will or does have an opinion, just read the comments but rememeber one thing best said by a famous quote:
There is no such thing as public opinion.
There is only published opinion.
Ok, for those which think I have bad taste I have removed the article. I meant no harm in the posting. I simply wanted to show how screwed up the prespective was getting on the story. I had nor have no other reason for doing it. Jim is a friend of mine and I do support him in his efforts of appeal.
I guess I will aplogize for my choice of article publishing, I stand behind the comment above; public opion is what is published.
Any one anywhere can read the article just search the goolge news postings.
