When will you #muppets show us the “carefully considered” votes and subjective, independent (😉, 😉) comments which have lead to the new “elite” “good old boy crony approved” US Soaring Team?
When will the “ illustrious” US Soaring Team Committee (aka good old boy puppets) release the “100% subjective” US Team (>85%) voting responses for ALL classes so we can all see for ourselves if the “carefully coordinated” reasoning (cough, cough) from the “Elite” (good old boys) are truthful when tested against facts, data, and evidence? These highly subjective responses (heavily weighted by the “team committee” puppets) resulted in the US Soaring Team Pilots and (wink, wink) the International US Team Rankings (highly objective, no weight) were therefore ENTIRELY ignored.
The “illustrious” US Rules (failed) Committee releases all their poll responses to the community (in full detail). Why does the US Team Committee continue to fail to release the poll answers and comments?
Why the double standard? Why the continued TOTAL lack of transparency when such a heavy subjective element (wink, wink) was utilized (🤥) for the new “pick the SSA Good Old Boy poodle” crony process which now results in the “Elite” (good old boy approved) US Team?
Shouldn’t you (Pete “the puppet” Alexander, Fernando “the coach” Silva, Sarah Arnold and Bob “the leech” Fletcher) all be proud of the carefully considered responses which you decided to “heavily rely” on? Well, share them. Show us their “brilliance.” We all know this is riddled with SSA BS or a contrived response. If not, prove it.
Check out the EPIC LEECHING by Bob Fletcher on P7 and check out Erik Nelson and Sean mini-me Murphy’s complete inability to fly on pace against the 15m class while employing intense, desperate pair flying efforts (from the early start to the landing) on the final day of the contest.
A tale of two ❤️ stories. One, a willing love 💕 between a doctor and his mini-me. The other, a forbidden love (stalking really) which is currently being reviewed by the Georgia State authorities. #nomeansNO

Cronyism permeates the corrupt US International Team Committee selection process for the 18-meter class (and likely others)
I was a bit surprised to receive an invitation at all, to be honest. But, after digging into this a little, I was stunned that the US Team Committee had chosen NOT to select me for the 18m team. It was nice to get the 15m invite, but I have made it VERY clear that I...read more
