In a few years, all posts will be about what contracts are being signed and for how much. Posters from one company will degrade the accomplishments of athletes from another. Posters supporting one running club will question the reputation of another, and posters paid to support one group of shoes, running apparel and swim wear will disrespect all others.
While running performance from high school through the professional ranks is at the highest level in 30 years, there seems to be a very big divergence in the ability to manage this sport in a productive and ethical way that does not make the sport look like a bunch of hungry jackals each focused on finding their next scrap of meat.
Unfortunately, running is an inherently independent sport ... and nobody has found a way to make this sport profitable in the USA except for a very few. I think there is an incredible lack of innovation in this sport.
However, you need to understand that the very nature of the runners and coaches who inhabit this sport do not have the mentality of making this a broader, more approachable and profitable sport.
So live with the fact this sport is populated by such people and understand that running has few opportunities for people to make a long career in running.
At least until someone creates a new concept that will avoid the downward spiral that I have seen in the lack of general support of the our greatest runners simply because they are on a different team?
