August 12 Th. just seen the rifle shooting, they are offski for the same reasons as the Archers.

August 11Th. 08 - Having just watched the Archery on the Olympics I now include them out ! those "bow na narras" as Duncan MacCrae once sang would now cost about the same as a small car, unrepresentative and therefore out !

Likewise synchronised diving, incredibly difficult and requiring a degree of skill and expertise as well as 4 years to practice full time means that very few people actually take part. Listen to the bizarre analysis of the commentators, feats of incredible strength and dexterity are regularly torn apart by them while, the ordinary viewer think they have just witnessed a near miracle, it's out !

Here's a thought for you, Terry... why is it that Archery is an Olympic sport, but Darts isn't?

Archery would have been one of the original sports, it was valid then, not now.

Darts ? Isn’t a sport but if you can have dressage and BMX then darts is getting a raw deal none of them are valid.

I hardly watch it all but it is unavoidable, I check the press to see if any real sports are being featured and then tune in.

thats because you are jobless and able to watch as much daytime telly that befits your indolent lifestyle.

Meanwhile Terry struggles down to the bank to cash in the council check that he thinks is not enough money for councilors.

What about bloging Teremce, should that not be an olympic sport. at least it would be something you could participate in without breaking a sweat or missing Jeremy Kyle etc
