TC, Chris, I was just wondering if maybe you guys would consider bringing back Charlie Francis?
I think I’ll start a ‘Bring back Charlie’ campaign.
In many opinions here he is a true T-man and a real genius that could contribute to our learning.
Part of the reason I ask is that it is drawing close to 20 years since that famous race and it would be great to have him here again.
Also since his trips Down-under and now the whole hullaballoo about himself and the attacks Vern Gambetta is making on him.
Lets … ‘Bring back Charlie’
Charlie stopped writing for us.
He got mad at us (as I recall) because of an article by Charles Staley that we posted.
Francis claims, mistakenly, I promise you, that Staley stole the article concept from him.
Since I ran the article, I got some of the blame.
Haven’t heard from him since.
Thanks for the reply TC.
From that I gather you guys don’t have any real problems with him writing here again?
The reason I ask is that he seems to have made quite a bit of a stir in Australia recently and I just thought he was the kind of elite coach that would be at home here, ruflling feathers - you guys were never afraid of that before!
I vaguely remember the whole Stately stuff a while ago, but lets be honest Charlie is, - and respect to all the other writers here - no disrepect intended at all - (apart from Poliquin I guess), the only other writer to have trained athletes to the elite level of the Olympic Games 100m final.
Anyway - like I said I just wanted to suggest him again for consideration and if you guys bring him back I for one will be delighted.
Thanks again for the reply TC
