i was wondering if we are being put on the honor system for nationals like
we were with stotes, or if they are going to keep things fair and actually
mark our hands, anyone know?

Do I detect some bitter rowers?  I find it rude that Canisus was bold
enough to video our (SJP) mid/ltwt 8 weighing in.  Nothing wrong with the
honor system.  I assure you, if you are doubting, that all 16 of our
weight-8 rowers were legit with their gold-medals.

Then why, might I ask, was the 140 lb boat average elimated at Stotesbury?
  Eight 145 lb rowers perhaps?

Makes one wonder. . .

I'm sorry to sound bitter, and I hate to make excuses, but
unfortunatly, people have heard plenty of rumors about St. Joe's
switching in rower's and I'm sorry but crew's don't get 30 seconds
faster in one day, it just doesn't happen.  I realize that it must be
offensive if you did not cheat, but the improvment you made from heats
to finals at stots does leave something open to speculation.  I think
that the preformence your crews showed were amazing, they were
abviously head and shoulders above the rest, but if you did cheat the
only person it should bother is yourself and your rowers.

This thread is right up there with the "but Riverside used better rowers!!!"
blues that somebody posted after failing to digest the spanking they got at
Canadian Henley last year.

1. St. Joe's isn't bright enough to pull switcheroos
2. Crews occasionally (!) bag easy heats.
3. People barely care who wins the V8, so why all this nonsense about
the midweight eight, 140lb eight, bugweight eight, 30-weight-ball-bearing
eight, pieces-of-eight, royally-***ed eight, blah-blah eight?????
4. Tank the Lawd your unnecessary-wake-making season is over. Smell you
fishbait next year.....NOT!

"1. St. Joe's isn't bright enough to pull switcheroos"

What the hell is this?  What does this Doyle guy have against the Prep
anyway?  First of all, we don't NEED to pull switcheroos.  Thank you for
attacking the pettiness of the argument, but why do you use every
opportunity to put us down?
Besides, with the number of USRowing Honor roll students we've made in
the past few years, you're just plain wrong.  Nice try, get a clue.

Well, if you add it up, ABOUT 732.6 INCHES OF WATER IN MY FRICKIN'
BOAT OVER THE LAST THREE YEARS!!!!! But other than that, I just
adore all you pumpkins.....

I have quite a few clues already, thank you. I used to loan the spares
to my friends who graduated from the Prep, but the spoonheads kept
absent-mindedly forgetting them, usually along with their keys,
wallets, etc. Since then, I don't really like to lend them out. They're
just too valuable a commodity in today's world......
