small children, (pregnant) women & innocent spectators (by not totally
banning the regluing process)
The answer to this is quite simple. ITTF and its affiliates make very
little money on their own. IOC provides a large potion of the operating
budget for ITTF affiliates in each country.
So if someone wants to sue the ITTF or affiliates for serious health issues
, ITTF can just laugh it off...........yeah right like we got lots of money
........thanks for the laughs.
ITTF & Adham Sharara know all this too well & he also knows that the IOC
and affiliates will end up footing the bill when the lawsuit comes (and not
the ITTF & affiliates).
So what it means is that Dr.Roggue & the IOC Council will end up looking
like the complete fools they indeed are. because despite repeated efforts to
warn the IOC of the ITTF misconduct , then Dr. Samaranch & now Dr. Roggue
have chosen to look the other way.
Unfortunately , the longer they wait, the worse the punishment they will
face for this blatant criminal negligence knowingly endangering the health
of small children as admitted by the ITTF top scientists themselves.
One can only hope that the IOC will see the light and remove table-tennis
from Olympics come July 2005 council meeting to decide which sports to axe.
Table-tennis has to be the simple logical choice.
