One thing Steve about this message board is for all the good it does, a lot of bad sadly comes of it, too. I think it was Brad Hudson who wisely said it's one of the best and worst things to happen in the running world.
I love the insight provided here, the hatred disturbs me. The misinformation on Tom was evil and sick, IMO. For anyone who has lost a sibling at a young age (as I have), I do not take those things lightly. In all my message board posting, that was one of the most mean-spirited things I've ever read. The take on Derek was sick, too.
I would suggest just coming here rarely, as unfortunately, the hatred can be overwhelming. Trying to get to the good posts can be difficult.
I've seen these pioneers and legends routinely trashed here: Pre, Lananna, Lydiard, Steve Scott, Peter Snell, Sydney Maree, Bernard Lagatt, Alan Webb, Dathan Ritzenhein, Mark Wetmore, and on and on and on. No one -- no matter how accomplished -- can escape the wrath of this board.
I am thankful Steve that you gave us some insight to your incredible family. Keep up the great coaching back East!
