It is subjective (no login) Posted Sep 6, 2008 9:35 AM
Sure there are politics in gymnastics & ice skating. It is more subjective like theater. In basketball, baseball and swimming, it would be hard to say that Michael Phelps would have been cut from the Swimming Team and who is going to not cast a running back that is consistent in scoring, and then there is the guy who can shoot from anywhere on the court. They are going to use him. I also have a daugther who is a gymnast, that scoring so reminds me of theater. I swear there are times that a child performs the skills better than another, but they just like the look of the other gymnast.
