I don't know who this guy is, but his lack of compassion is disturbing.

Agreed. Good way to give a ton of people a bad name.

This type of behavior and attitude is the total opposite from everything I've witnessed from CrossFitters. In my experiences, everyone has been shockingly nice.

The issue is clearly Teasdale, not CrossFit. This is the same type of bullying and taunting that seems to be increasing throughout the US.

Get your rocks off on obtaining a better PR rather than a little humor at someone else's expense.

Re: This makes me angry....wfs

1. This guys behavior is deplorable. I think its unfair for all of crossfit to be judged by the actions of a few but, that is the way the world seems to work

2. I wouldn't be surprised to see this end up in Pukie's Bucket.

3. The post is WFS but the link is not. There are a bunch of F-bombs in the article and photo captions. Its nothing too offensive, just FYI.

7) Writes illinformed artical about Crossfit bagging everyone and everything
8) ?????????????????
9) Profit

Did you even read the link?

I'd hope that affiliate owner has his status revoked.

Re: This makes me angry....wfs

Let's not forget about Mr. Teasdale's lack of composure at the OC throwdown as well when he saw fit to shout profanities at a female judge, lob a loaded barbell in her direction, and physically shove her aside after she correctly no repped him. This should be the end of it hopefully, his affiliate status should be pulled IMO.

Re: This makes me angry....wfs

Yes it was.

Mr Teasdale is a m*ron who gives Crossfit a bad name. He should without doubt have his affiliation revoked. His behavior when he threw the barbell at the judge should result in a lifetime ban from crossfit.

I was making the point that he should bag the hell out of Mr Teasdale but to go after HQ and drag into it some outspoken Critics of Crossfit is poor form.

Bag Mr Teasdale for his poor taste and poor form at the Crossfit competition do not turn the artical into a Crossfit basing session
