    "2.5 years ago, yet you're still posting from the same account, and doing the same tired shtick. I would have been willing to move on if you had. And then there's the fact the I now know exactly who you are-- a coward who anonymously takes his frustration over his own personal and athletic failures out on better athletes (and people) than himself. About what I suspected at the time.

    If we could get one member of every team to write a memoir like Alex's we might be able to purge much of the anonymous douchbaggery out of Trackie, because I suspect most of it is coming from guys like you."



    Steve - you are a CIS head coach - take the higher road. Some of your comment was ok; some was blatant cyberbullying (this part: "a coward who anonymously takes his frustration ... out on better people than himself"). Two wrongs don't make a right. Edit your comment. You could deal with this through more legitimate avenues if you wanted to.

    well things seem tense here, might as well break this tension with preds from everyones favourite Dragon Slayer.
    Mens:
    1. Andrew Peverill (SMU): This little wolf pup is finally ready to shine, and whats the shiniest thing on earth? That's right, gold. He also looks skinny so that's good.
    2. Angus Rawling (St.FX): The pretty boy of the AUS. He looks skinny which i'm sure will help him over the 10 kilometre distance.
    3. Michael Colford (UNB): What a sweetheart. He's got his eyes on the prize this year after coming off of a great summer of work. Must have started focusing on diet because he looks skinny.
    4. Bryn Smith (DAL): The Brit from across the pond misses the podium, but gains something all more valuable: Canadian Citizenship. Yes, believe it or not, by attaining rookie of the year, Bryn will be granted citizenship. Also don't know what they're feeding them in the United Kingdom, but this kid is SKINNY.
    5. Lee Wesselius (UPEI): After having to watch his bronze medal team slip from glory, coach Wesselius is going to STEP UP. However, his dreams of a medal will once again slip out of his chubby hands. idk he's a nice guy so lets just give UPEI the bronze again this year.
    6. Alex Neuffer (St.FX): PEI's golden boy has had one too many potatoes, and in turn, put on 12 pounds. This weight will be directly correlated with him being unable to roll with the lead pack over 10k. Maybe if he had followed the Rawling diet things woulda been different.
    7. James Cromack (DAL): If I had to summarize this young bull in two words it would be: Skinny and Skinnier. Dal's big pick up of the 2017 season will prove to be one of the most challenging runners to take down, as he leads the race through 7k. I guess being skinny can only get you so far (7k to be exact).

    Team title: St. Fx
    Runner up: UNB
    Bronze: UPEI

    You have the privilege of knowing I"m a CIS coach only because I, unlike you, don't post anonymously.

    I have a proposition for you: You tell me exactly who you are and why you care, and "AUS Scout" makes a full apology to Alex Wilkie (could be private, I don't care), and I promise to edit my comment. Deal?

    And "cyberbullying"? That's rich! I don't recall you riding in on your high horse when "AUS Scout" was anonymously mocking Alex Wilkie after his CIS career ending injury.

    Didn't this whole thing happen because Oldster made some kind of online bet that Wilkie would beat all the AUS guys at U Sports? Then Matt McNeil (an AUS guy) ended up finishing near the front of the pack while Wilkie had an extremely off day. Wasn't AUS Scout just mocking the fact that oldster was wrong and an AUS guy destroyed Wilkie (before he or anyone else knew why Wilkie finished so badly)?

    Directed to: Steve Boyd and Alex Wilkie

    It looks like the time has come for me to talk about the post I made regarding Wilkie. I am sorry to you Steve, for the post where I chirped Wilkie's performance, and questioned why he didn't run well. Alex, I also apologize for those comments I made in my post. Looking back now, I definitely took things too far, and the post may have came off as hostile and ill advised. Initially when I made the post I wasn't thinking about any of the consequences. I made it merely on the spot, and didn't think much of it. I realise know Steve, that you get deeply attached to your athletes, and seeing that post likely infuriated you.

    In the fall of 2015 leading up to CIS Nationals,, there was a lot of hype going on the boards regarding CIS XC predictions. People were hyping up the OUA, people were hyping up the AUS. There were bets laid out as well. Steve, you have to admit that you downplayed the AUS, accused it of underperforming, and thought Matt would lose to Wilkie. You seemed very confident that Wilkie would beat Matt, and AUS supporters thought Matt would beat Wilkie vice versa. When I made that post, in all seriousness I just did it to support the AUS, and prove you wrong since Matt defeated Wilkie. I knew part of Wilkie's off race was attributed to his injury, but I had no idea the severity of his injury. I thought it was a minor injury and didn't know it would be a career ending injury. My motive for posting was to make a point as well as chirp you for overhyping the OUA. Under no circumstances was I trying to make fun of Wilkie's injury, which is how it has been interpreted.

    I hope this clears some things up, although the bridge is likely still burned

    Thank you. Apology accepted (by me-- I think Alex has moved on).

    Now, let's hear from this "Rembrandt" guy. When he tells me who he is, I will remove or edit my original post and you guys can get on with your AUS stuff.

    For the record, I bet that the OUA champ (in this case he happened to be my own athlete) would beat the AUS champ, because that is almost universally the case at CIS. In the end, the OUA champ's ultimately CIS career ending injury blew up and led to a 34th place finish-- almost unprecedented for an OUA champ. But, the OUA silver and bronze medalists went 1-2 and the AUS champ (one of the best in a while) finished 6th. I also predicted that a very good but not winning OUA guy (Blair Morgan) could beat this AUS champ. He didn't, but he was 1 second back of him. I say all of this to highlight the absurdity of my having been "chirped" by AUS Scout (or anyone else) on the basis of my predictions, the broad context of which was AUS versus OUA historical performance. I like the spirit of the AUS guys (even more so after having read Alex's fine little book); but, to seriously question this empirical reality was just silly, and eventually lead to one of you taking a friendly, event-promoting rivalry WAY too far. And why? Anonymity. It's toxic.
