WAF WAR Website Contd.



This is sick what is going with the WAF's official website right now... this sicknees must be stopped. How long we will be watching this kid behaviour ?... Maybe during the years the activists get use to lead WAF in that way but is time to stop it. 

SHAME  SHAAMMNEEEE   SHHAAAMMMMEEEEEEEEE !!!!

Yesterday on official WAF's website Mr. Alain Blanchard posted his explenation info to all this situation (I copied all info and posted below)... this only shows the pathology in this case... official body has now access to the official website of the sport he represents but person who updated the website use it to defend himself... 

I heard a lot of good opinions about Mr. Alain Blanchard and it looks like his name is entangled in the entire matter because he created the website and linked it to the domain which he got from the owner with the agreement between them two. Whatever the agreement was between Alain and the predecessor, it should have never been made. 

MY QUESTION IS... WHERE ARE PEOPLE WHO WERE LEADING THE WAF FEDERATION WHEN THE WEBSITE WAS CREATED, WHY THEY NOT GIVE ANY OFFICIAL COMMENT IN THIS CASE ONLY ALLOW OTHERS SHOOT TO THE TARGET WHICH SHOULD NEVER BE ?

ARMWRESTLING IN SPORTACCORD FAMILY ...


Few days ago in the press came out the news about the sports which can be removed from the Olympics. One of them is wrestling which is an icon of Olympic Games, one of the oldest sports in the world, at the Olimics over 100 years, since 1896, and if the International Olympic Committee (IOC) wants to discard from the calendar such a discipline as wrestling is, then the dream that armwrestling become a part of Olimpics's family oneday is not real any more. If the armwrestling activitis were not able to do this in last 30 years then now they wan't do it also.

For amateur sport is time to get a new direction on SPORTACCORD...TIME TO STAR DO SOMETHING... WAF soulds appoint a person who will be lead discussions with SPORTACCORD Committee. BUT BEFORE THEY START ... they first sould carry out a reforms, like reduce the number of categories in senior classes, change the rules by taking out the things witch kills the beauty of this sport. If not then the raft named ARMWRESTLING still will be drifting and waiting for the wind that never comes.
