    How come Justin Gatlin is a "two times drug cheat" but Linford Christie is a "legend of athletics" both statements from BBC pundits.

    Wow! What happened to the British tradition of dropping the baton?

    Because by large, the BBC pundits are crap. On Saturday I think it was regarding the 4x100m, when asked who they thought would win Denise Lewis said the USA and added "unfortunately" with Johnson sat next to her.

    I'm all for rooting for our own, but that is taking it to another level.

    They need a clear out.

    Eurosport is a much nicer viewing experience for the athletics fan.
    I generally like BBC sport coverage, but find their athletics like the one show with some running thrown in every now and then (minimal field events), and very one-eyed and partisan which, as someone who watches the sport through the season, doesn't float my boat.
