|Subject: ||RE: NYRR are crybabies|
If NY upped their bid to $1 million, that should have been enough to get one of the two Trials, which is all they wanted anyway. The notion of having both Trials in the same place may or may not be good, but going into this process, it was one that NO ONE outside of Houston had.
I don't think it's a leap to perceive that Logan, in this article and in this decision, is doing at bit of "look who's boss" assertion at NY's expense.
As for why only marathoners who'd run NYC were quoted in the article, well, that's because virtually all the elite Americans have. The only one I can think of who hasn't is Desiree Davila.
And to the guy who asked why no one wants to run Berlin...Berlin makes no attempt to have an elite field that's more than three or four deep, tops.
