Sir Clive Woodward believes Canada have crossed the line in exploiting home advantage at the Vancouver Winter Olympics.
Home advantage has been exploited to the full with the vast majority of overseas nations restricted to the minimum amount of training time and use of facilities - according the rules laid down by the relevant international governing bodies.
What do you think?

Yes they have, I am Canadian & we should have done different. But saying that it seems to be if we do it its fround appon but that could just be me but I am not going to appoligies for it.
What I was agreeing to was the comments by the Eurosports guy should have been used for things relating to what was going on in the olympics in a good way rather than negative etc.
Eurosport Journalists ! Well therse's a contradiction in terms. Looks like you're trying to stir up some controversy about very little. Why don't the 'Eurosport Journalists' spend their time trying to improve the terrible coverage and standard of commentary instead of wasting it on the message boards!

Ok I have not been able to find a website where I can find the REAL FACTS on the RULES put down by each governing bodies for all the events in the Olympics but one thing I do know is this, you cant believe anything you read or hear from the newspapers/press as they make things up or leave things out to make a story.
If Canada is against the spirit of the Olympics then what do you call the USA?
First everyone knows that they bribed to host the Olympics in Salt Lake City. Then if you read a coment a Greek Olympian from a while ago said you will see who realy does not understand the Olympic Spirit.
I dont have the patients for rumours or lies just facts & proof.
