you can see what i deal with while trying to point out the obvious , to both pro and the age grouper alike .
united front .
there is not such a thing because people want to play the man , or the statement instead of the intent to make things better for all .
wtc is not the enemy .
we are the enemy of our selves .
I've sat on meetings now for 20 yrs , and its always the same .
i good idea gets shredded , because of personal influence or complete apathy cause we got money and don't care .
that goes same with the
all cry and when they get money , seem to abandon all form of care for fellow workers .
you tell me
how long do you think it would take providence equity to sell
here is an entry form .
and you fill it out and pledge 1000 dollars
to be put in a secure account
at one of the race entry providers
and 100, 000 people put in .
then they give me the commitment
should providence who bought it for like 80 and change , sa not to 100, 000 million from its own constituency ,
that they will not race another wtc event and all pros down tools , and say we will stick to other races .
merchant bankers , are not stupid .
if there was that solidarity
we would own the sport
b4 yr is out
that bloody simple .
but i got to hear oh ,you don't know , how difficult , it is , or u have no idea about , business .
where i come from smart guys
know when to fold em ,
if we had solidarity , they would sell and be happy to get out of the investment , with their cash in tact and no financial pain for their contributors ,
could even make them selves look good .
so mate ,
i keep chipping away , not at wtc but on how simple the equation is .
because its the myth of how tuff it is they stand behind , and then the divide and conquer about age groupers , the pros are greedy .
they put that out because they need to make money out of the racers , because their business model is wrong
but when you have a million dollar company run by ex athletes and race directors , that what you get .
a dysfunctional view of the sport .
those to close to the fire , like pro athletes have their usually sound minds not look at the big picture , some very smart guys and i know they are but have triathlonitis , because they are in the game .
want to shoot holes with a fish argument .
their argument was so shallow i couldn't swim in it
fish industry 3 times bigger than ours , i nearly fell off the seat , how much wow
you see , i think we should be looking at the health budget and say how big is that ,
see how much bigger ironman or triathlon take your pick , should be when compared to a male dominated sit on your arse pastime .
this is our real enemy , the enemy from with in that have the blinkers on , and have had them on for 20 yrs i been around it .
i just need to keep on educating , we have the vehicle to make a huge I'm print on society ,
and we got clowns attacking the first group that decided to try and give triathlon a million dollar prize purse .
it might be a job even too big for me , but i thought i would give it a go .
some time idealists get killed in the rush by fellow idealists .
and mate you can post this on every try site you like ,
they are missing a huge opportunity , and it won't come again , as the numbers will make it impossible in the future .
