Woody...I think snap is a pro but wanted to confirm before saying anything. Not trying to provoke or call out in any way. My thought was that a previous poster was commenting about a pro intimidating a leisure sailor but in this case I was thinking it was two pros in conflict. If snap is a pro ( don't know that's why i asked) then I am sure that he would not be intimidated. The second thing that came to mind was that if snap did follow thru on a 69 hearing against Mark would that be the first time in history that a pro has initiated a hearing against another pro? The third thing was that right, wrong, or indifferent could you imagine if snap started the process and a jury agreed, forwarded it to authorities and Mark was suspended. That is heavy stuff. Even if he was in the right to do so and lets say for arguments sake that he is, could you imagine for the rest of your life of sailing people would not remember you for your sailing accomplishments but for being the guy that got Reynolds kicked out of sailing? We are talking Mark Reynolds man! Guy is Gold medalists legend that I always looked up to and thought of as a pretty good guy. Perhaps (and maybe Mark has a different take what happened) Mark made a mistake with the language but it would suck for a lifetime achiever to go down that way. We all have had our moments out there where we would like to take things back. Again snap did not initiate 69 and as i said before i am glad he didn't.
On another note it would be cool if the Lipton Cup did not allow any pros. Current format allows for 3 pros with an amateur helm. Not sure how SDYC came up with that number but if your gonna allow 3 pros on a J105 why even bother limiting it all? SDYC has put together a great event and I hope it continues to grow.
??? ?.... I realize it's not the norm around here but I can't figure why people would not want to post as themselves
OK a Handel is fine but let it be known who you are and it's a better forum
a common thing about sockpupets is that they go through a forum like BAD Cyclist go through traffic
NO Matter the situation they have the right of way w No recorse
Running Red Lights, Stop Signs, Turning against traffic, On the Sidewalk or Blocking a lane of Traffic
All The While Demanding Respect
A sockpuppet thinks they are Judge, Jury and Score Keeper
they feel they keep a personal clean slate be being a sockpuppet
YET try to rack up Real Points against Real People while hiding behing a Sock
AND If that wern't enough
they pick and chose from what is said to the sockpuppet to take Personaly and Hold against the Real Person
And 1 ........ No matter what I Say to you and No matter what I call you in this forum - It's NOT to "You" the Real Person
If you have some Good Points to say Why wouldn't want to get the Credit for saying them
Are you a ventriloquist in your day to day life ??
Stand up and be counted - Speak as Your-Self the Real Person If ya gut sumpin to say
AS for the comment of Rules and Celebrity
IF It's A Rule - It's A RULE and till it's changed it must be followed By EVERYONE = EVERYONE
The Premis of Sail Racing At It's Higest Level is that a Competitor would Call Them-Selves on an Infraction Commited
REGUARDLESS of Anyone Else Possibly Seeing or The Caliber of the Event or The Consequences there of
As for commenting on what actually happened on the Water that day ??????????
I Don't Know
