  1. WE JUST DON'T GET IT!!! For decades we have put baton passing at the bottom of the training priority list and once again it bites us in the buns. The coaching staff is totally to blame and should be publicly drawn and quartered. Is it too much to ask for just a few hours practice every four years? One with half a brain would figure that out in a heartbeat. If the coaches won't demand the effort then the athletes themselves must pull rank and PRACTICE for God's sake!
