One certainly sees some fatheaded threads on this Forum and this is a top ten item. Quite ridiculous comment by Jamboy about sanctioning an athlete for speaking with passion and using an epithet, perhaps unwisely. but as you gents say " no big deal"

The endless swearing on Hollywood films and what kids pick up at school and in the street suggests that this silly thread, imo, gets ones family used to a world that does not exist, namely where no "naughty" words are spoken or heard in public.

All the parents who dont want kids to speak or hear swearing are all going to look foolish sooner or later, because thats the world we live in, for better or worse.

I think Jamboy wants us all to say we think it was a terrible incident and Jeter should be sanctioned, in the hope that USATF ban her from running....so Jamaica get better odds in the 100/200/4x100

:twisted:

Who gives a flying FCUK what she said? Happens fairly often on live feeds, whether that be TV or radio. To suggest she should be sanctioned by USATF is ridiculous. Maybe the Jamaican federation should sanction Bolt for pratting around disrespectfully on the start line before a race? I find that more offensive.

Sanctioned for swearing? No, a ra don the knuckles with a "don't let this happen again". If I'm honest USAT&F should be far more worried about her relationship with Mark Block and how pupil she is with it and him turning up to T&F events she runs at. I'm not saying she is doing anything illegal but she appears to be helping or encouraging him flount his ban and it's doing nothing good for the sport having such a dodgy character around all of the time, potentially influencing new athletes.

And to think that this guy is actually an American, an American-Jamaican, a former American, or something like that.


I have been posting on this board for 5 years(on and off) and I don't have a clue who this other poster is.

Your first post on this forum was on 8/26/12, which just happens to be the same date of the banning of TrackNut2012, whose first post was 8/3/12, which just happens to be the same date as the banning of Jamaica50, whose first post was 6/4/12, which just happens to be the same date as the banning of Notorious, who was a known reincarnation/alias of Jammin. I'm sure it's all just coincidence.

I first posted when I joined here on February 10, 2008 over 5 years ago. I have been posting on an off the past 5 years.

I have no clue who these other posters are. I guess the only connection I may have is that we are devout Jamaicans who care about our country.

I am an American as well and I love both countries.

American? Jamaican? Who knows
Pathetic? Definitely

I'm still waiting to hear jamboy's opinion of Bolt's F-Bomb shirt, which is, of course, much more egregious than an inadvertent expletive on TV, because one was very intentional and the other not.

It doesn't bother me at all that you're more proud of your Jamaican heritege than you are of your American heritege, but it would be refreshing for you express your American pride on this board at least occasionally.

jamboy wrote:A raging debate has been going on all over the internet the past few days about the "shock" utterance of the F bomb on live national TV by superstar sprinter Jeter during the running of the womens 4 x 100m at the just concluded Penn Relays.

A replay by NBC showed an "outraged" Jeter visibly upset over the US losing the event. Jeter had previously anchored the US team to wins the past three years.

Should she be sanctioned by USA Track and Field for "Unsportsman/woman" like behavior in front of a national TV audience in the middle of a Saturday afternoon?

For a person of her stature, what message is this sending to our kids most notably our young upcoming athletes?

What do you think?


I just want to double-check that I understand the situation:

Carmelita Jeter, who did not run in 4x100m event, was observerd by the NBC video cameras visibly upset and uttering a curse word. You are asking if USATF should sanction her for that action.

So in essence, you are asking if a spectator at a sporting event should be sanctioned by the professional organization to which they subscribe if a television network broadcasts an image of them cursing. Just making sure I understand the situation.

As a member of a trade union, I think that sets a very dangerous precedent for what your labor representatives can penalize you for on your free time.

As a parent, here's my advice on how you explain that situation to your child: "The woman you saw on TV was watching a sporting event, and she was upset by the result, and she said words that aren't appropriate."

As a user of the English language, my recommendation is avoid using the word "sanction" in a thread title, as it leads people to believe there's something more serious/pernicious at stake than an observer of a sporting event cursing.

Sanction also means to give one's approval - maybe that's what jamboy meant! :wink:

Trivia: Sanction joins 'dust' (to wipe off dust or to add it (dust for prints)) and 'trim' (trim the tree - add things . . . or trim one's fingernails - remove part) as words that mean their opposites! :D

As a parent, here's my advice: Watch "On Golden Pond " with your children.

Kathryn Hepburn: "Come on, Billy."
Billy (the young grandson): "Bullshit."
Kathryn Hepburn: "I beg your pardon. Does that mean you can't wait to get out there...
or that it's not your cup of tea?"
Billy: "It's bullshit, that's all."
Kathryn Hepburn: "I see. Well, come on, Norman. Let's get ready."
Henry Fonda: "You like that word, don't you? Bullshit."
Billy "Yeah."
Henry Fonda: (pauses) "It's a good word." (then turns and walks away)

Danica Patrick dropped the "F-bomb" on National TV during the salute after the Boston Marathon attack. The head of the FCC said it was from the heart and excused it.
So give Carmelita a F**king break.

You can't be 1/2 Jamacian and 1/2 American. Those words denote citizenship.

You are either one OR the other OR both. Dual citizenship (for both countries that allow it) would mean Jamacian AND American, NOT half and half.

Half and half referrences usually refer to ethnicity, not nationality.

The author of this utterly asinine and very revealing anti Carmelita Jeter fake ass controversy failed miserably and thus made himself a piñata to any fair-minded person who commented here. Mr. Jamboy truly wished to lure his fellow Jamaican commenters to pile on and verbally gangbang Ms. Jeter, whom he despises/fears.
Mr. Jamboy further added to his self originated troubles by insulting everyone's intellect claiming to be neutral and "liking Jeter" and being on the fence between Jamaica and the U.S. when none of his posts suggests that he roots equally for both Nations. Also, attempting to impose his world view on what constitutes inappropriate behavior probably pissed off those who believe in the First Amendment. Why would anyone who "likes Jeter" take the time to be so petty?

Face it Jamboy, you lost credibility on this one.

I had no such intent. You obviously don't know me well.

I very much like Jeter and was hoping she was going to run at the Jamaica Invitational this year(as she has done and won the past three years).
