Re: Opt

Yeah, it was regarding the Reebok stuff and the CF-Reebok link as well as the equipment/uniforms etc. CF kinda cut him out, and he said fine.

Re: Opt

Kind of silly that they wouldn't acknowledge he was the winner of the first Games, what legit sport would undeclare a winner because of a fallout with an athlete. He won in 2007 and that's that, no matter what kind of disagreement they had. he still contributes to the Crossfit community and from everything I have ever heard of him is 10 parts awesome. Next year the NHL will say that the Bruins didn't win the cup ? Give me a break.

Wow, that is surprising. Doesn't seem to fit well with the whole open source fitness idea.

Re: Opt

Silly. CF is about fitness. If CF provides a better product, the money and business will follow. Flash will attract a few people, but these will be the first people to leave when the next new fad hits next month.

IMHO.
