    That's one hell of a set of propaganda sites.

    Do you follow any of the links to source?
    Google them for yourself. That's where they came from.

    Fine. Moving them would be better for all concerned.

    I was referring to wearing an armband in protest. If the Spirit is broken by Russia then we can break it ourselves to protest it.

    I am well aware of the desires of the athletes. I'm also well aware of the ideals of the nation. Guess which one wins?

    That's not in the rules and they would be forced to act, exactly what we don't want.

    Not getting a promotion due to Office Politics is unfair. Not being able to go to the Olympics because of a hissy fit by the President is something entirely different.
