Subject: RE: The REAL reason why Track and Field isn't more popular...
I think that anyone who has faith in track and field becoming real popular is dreaming. The way to look at it is not to PROMOTE the hell out of it... it must be REVOLUTIONIZED.
Right now, it is so poorly designed, for it is really many sports in one...
MOST of those people in one of those groups hardly cares to watch the other compete.
for example, as distance runner, I dont know what 5.50 meters even translates to in polevault - and they never tell me what it is in feet... there is never a leaderboard out on the field... it is tough to follow.
Secondly, we need to realize the strengths and weaknesses of trying to promote co-ed meets... what other major sport is co-ed? (most sport fans are men and most men want to watch men play sports)
when i think of it, i just dont see it happening for track and field. it is a NICHE sport.
CROSS COUNTRY on the other hand - that sport has a team aspect, clear goals, and is only one event. Perhaps we bring back the streams and fences to jump over... better than track but still a long way to go...
