Man, my dad bought a raffle ticket for that car and I’m seriously pissed because it looks like the Challenged Athletes haven’t seen a single dime of the money they were supposed to get, either. I hope they put this bozo back in the clink… I do this sport for myself, mostly, but I also like feeling that I’m doing someone else some good. Watch out for this guy’s name!
wow this guy needs some serious counseling.
i have to say, the races that i’ve been to have been well managed, have great support, and everything appears legit.
tell me if I am off-base about this, but isn’t there a perception that people who are athletic — into endurance-related sports — are better than average when it comes to morality? this is entirely ridiculous, but i think the perception exists. because for a triathlon race director to get jailed for fiscal impropriety, it’s wierd, and goes against my stereotype of triathlon people. which I consider to be naturally good people
I think you’re right about that – but then you and I might be a tad biased, huh? After all, members of MOST groups think their groups consist of generally good people… not that I’m getting into politics in any way here, heavens no, but…
I think that perception is actually part of the reason why everyone seems to totally disappointed by this guy. I mean, Martha Stewart, everyone clucked a little and muttered something about greed, but this Kline person is definitely the recipient of a lot of “Shame on you…” vibes. As he should be, but it’s just so UNEXPECTED.
Me, I think I’ll make a donation to the charity that the money was supposed to go to in the FIRST place… rebalance the karma a little…
