He is sounding like a "PRE" just in the year 2011.

I think the most effective method of combating the rules would be to get all the competitors in on wearing some sort of unsanctioned sponsor logo as a big f you to both USATF and IAAF. You'd have to have a big sponsor to get everybody, or get a group together like the sports drink companies and have them do something for each of their athletes and provide something for unsponsored athletes as well. At that point, what are they going to do, disqualify everybody in the meet?

It wasn't long ago that African Americans were not allowed into the Masters through the same club(we make our own rules) argument. I think a class action lawsuit is in order, especially if you have to join USATF to go to the Olympics and World Cup events. The biggest key may be in laying the framework for "harm done."

If you want to expose it through corporate law, you can use AT&T's(Ma Bell monopoly) case as a good weapon.

I believe that the IAAF does not want T&F to be big in the U.S. and the USATF must be one of those groups who defines purity of the sport by the number of people it turns off.
