Robb Wolf and Greg Everett are huge assets to the community and it would be a shame to lose either of them.

I'd be interested to hear the other side of this story.

This is obviously only one side of the story but I don't see how the HQ guys, Dave Castro in particular, can justify their behavior.

^ Yes, yes, and yes. I've been sitting here stunned since I read it this morning.

There's always more than one side - but if this is even partially (impartially) accurate, there's going to be a lot of fallout. And I can't imagine what will happen if those stated videos get out and about.

And here I was happy that the Greyskull stuff seemed to have calmed down.
WTH are they THINKING??!?

Wow, its going to be interesting to see how this meltdown plays out. In the day and age of youtube and massively followed blogs, of course something like this would get out of hand. I just hope that it doesn't effect most people in the community.

That is my hope. I like Crossfit, I do have concerns about how business matters seemed to be handled. Being an outsider I don't know how exactly see things are handled so only going by what gets out in the public. If the videos make it out, unedited, that could shed some light on what all happened.

eek - I follow Robb's blog. I subscribe to both Performance Menu and the CF Journal. I love Dave and Tony's CF Journal articles.

I hope this can be resolved amicably.
