Russian Olympic Committee banned from 2018 Winter Games! What?


Russian Olympic team has been banned from 2018 Winter Games! WOW!
Does this sound like a fair action or one politically motivated to damage Russia standing in the World court of opinion? Specially given the fact that World Cup is going to be in Russia in 2018 which is by far the greatest sporting event in the World.
What do you think about this?

really bizarre ruling by Olympic Committee. Surely not all Russian Winter Olympic team is guilty of doping. This is collective punishment of the sort the Nazis would inflict on Russians for standing up to them.

Yes, exactly. And what is even more BIZARRE is that the last Winter Olympic was in Sochi Russia. So Olympic committee is thanking Russia for hosting the last Winter Olympics by taking a step that it has taken against NO Country before which is/was to bar Russian athletes to even fly the Russian flag! WOW!
And it gets even more BIZARRE, in so far as the up coming World Cup of Football is in Russia!

This is a very well apt analogy. To punish the entire Russian youth who have worked their heart and soul to attend the Winter Olympic, for wrong doing of a few officials, alleged and not proven even, is indeed tantamount to Nazi collective punishment Russians during WWII.

Yes, what is even Bizarre is this statement by IOC that Russian athletes can appear under a Neutral flag and not Russian flag. What the Hell does that mean? I mean should a Russian athlete win Gold, and stands on the Gold podium, which flag are they going to raise and whose National anthem are they going to Play? Maybe Disney flag and Mickey-mouse anthem :)

This hate for Russia and all things Russia is stupid.
Now if you want to ban countries from the Olympics, why not ban all the countries that sponsor Islamic Terrorists?

1st, the Country that "sponsor Islamic Terrorists" is the Islamic State of Saudi Arabia, which Saudi Arabia is loved by Trump and Military Industrial Complex, including Obama and Clinton, as Trumps 1st visit was to Islamic State of Saudi Arabia and proudly announced his trip a great success by signing the biggest Arm deals with Islamic State of Saudi Arabia.

2nd, totally agree with you that this "hate for Russia and all things Russia is stupid".

No. The chief sponsor of Islamic Terrorism- actually sponsors - are the FBI and CIA.

Well you are right about that of course, but you need to add to that list the Military Industrial Complex (MIC) whose latest bastard child is Trump, and resulting support for Islamic State of Saudi Arabia and hence Wars on secular Muslim countries such as Saddam's Iraq, Assad's Syria, etc. which lead to the so called ISIS. But of course many know that ISIS = Israel State Intelligent Services. But this thread is about Russia being banned from Olympic, so lets keep it there.

No country should be banned from the Olympics but I really wish one of two things would happen with them.
I would prefer the Olympics be banned.
If not that, I wish they would pick one place for the winter and summer Olympics and set them there forever and ever - and stop spending taxpayer dollars in any country for stupid sports.

Well a Country should be banned from Olympics if they are fomenting War and Genocide. But No country should banned, as Russia has been, based on alleged doping by a few bad Apples. And Olympics bring incredible amount of development and Tax revenues and overall growth to whatever City & Country where they are hosted. So to say that "stop spending taxpayer dollars in any country for stupid sports", is being "Penny Wise and Pound foolish".

Mu comment also includes not subsidizing any professional sport teams in this country. Let all teams and all event organizers pay for the games. They all get rich off of them and there isn't a single sporting event that is needed. The vast majority of the people in any country and in the entire world never follow sports or go to any of the games.

Well Olympics are special category of sporting events, as they are not professional sports so they must be financed by Government of the City/Country hosting them. But Olympics bring such ROI short term and long term that they are great investment on many levels. Now if you want to talk about Government not spending Tax payer Money, then lets cut the Military budgets World Wide, starting with the Gargantuan Military budget of US which at $700-Bill per Year is equal to 100 Olympics per Year!

Rather than cut military budget, why not increase and charge all the countries where troops are stationed for the cost of the troops?
And all the sports are professional because all the athletes make money. Some even get rich.

Why not cut the Free Military that we are giving to other Countries and invest that money in American People & Cities. Put simply: WHY are the American People giving $200 Billion per Year in FREE Military to the Richer European Union people?
And most of the athletes are anything but rich, a few like 0.1% are.
Now about Russia being banned from Winter Olympic, what a bullock.

But of course that does not happen since this Military Industrial Complex controls the Media in US, aka FAKE News, resulting in Fake Barrak Hussein Obama and now the super Fake Trump, resulting in more Wars after Wars, to Obama having added 3 Wars over Bush to Trump wanting to add to all the Obama Wars with a Nuclear War on North Korea, which NK has done nothing to US or anyone as evident by Russia and China that border NK having no problem with NK and instead trading with her Big.
