You Queenslanders certainly have a lot to crow about at the moment.
Like I give a damn what you think
For most part I totally agree with you. I didn't want to attack Melanie too much and I apologise to you if I may have gone too far as it was not my intention (Huegill was my main target).
Some swimmers will get paid more it's a natural fact of living in a capitalist world. However, the money they pumped into Thorpe , Skippy, Libby etc. was a joke. As shown, there was no guarantee that these former stars could recapture their form in such a short time let alone ever again. But SA will probably say they made a few bucks out of it in an attempt to justify the money spent.
If Swimming Australia is behaving in that way through its CEO, he must not be in charge. I believe you need a person who understands an organisation in order to run it which makes it a joke that Neil is in charge. The legal threats seem petty and hopefully the Smith review will force SA to start working with the swimmers association.
