Salacious gossip.

It seems that if there is a whiff of sex, drugs, or what, readers of trackie have two cents to add. I like Trackie because it brings me news of my favourite sport in my favourite country.
Yes, it is tragic that we have our scandals, like all other sports and cultural activities in all other jurisdictions. I am here for the stats.

    There's a "Results" section right next to the "Forum" section on the menu bar for all the stats.

    I am here for people complaining about other people's conversations. I can't get enough of it.

    I have a mixed response to this observation and feeling, Lobster. Sure, it would be great to stick just to the nuts and bolts of the sport (see "stats" as you put it), and avoid all of the "salacious gossip", but as much as we may try to separate these things -- and for better or for worse -- I think it is impossible. BTW, much of this said gossip turned out to be true in the prime example I think you are referring to, so to dismiss it as so much empty speculation is a generalization, and minimizes some necessary examination (even "catharsis") by the athletics culture in this country, and beyond.

    Interesting you chose the title Salacious Gossip to get your post viewed. Really it should be Salacious Statistics if you’re not into gossip, like you say.
