Rules can be changed. You shouldn't accept the rules the way they are if there's a mechanism and enough will to change them.[/quote]
Yeah, I understand that's how the world works and appreciate the difficulty of making these changes.
But my problem with rojo's arguments is that they are not compelling enough to influence the change he wants. His will is certainly there, which I respect.
The arguments though; they need to stand up to debate and my sense is that they are too flimsy to do so at present. They're weaker than the "just run faster and hit the qualifying time" argument, and he and others have been unable to provide compelling alternates.
