Synopsis Invited Feedback Importance (/10, author rated :-) )
I wrote this after watching the BBC's attempts to cover the javelin final,(its the pointy thing guys), and then wonder why there were so few UK athletes competing. (There were more BBC athletics commentators at the world championships than there were grade A qualifying UK athletes.)

Anybody who coaches athletes in the middle of an English winter, unpaid, with absolutely sod-all resources (I have to use my own), a bureaucracy which forces people to study for qualifications (good) but also wants them to do it all for nothing around busy lives and pay for the privilege (not so good), will understand how vomit-inducing it is to have the BBC agonise over why we have so few athletes, tennis players and so on in any event. What we can do though is talk about it. Boy are we good at that. But I'm not bitter :-)
