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?

The decision of IOC looks practical to Maine, taking under consideration the previous events - I mean, the proven doping issues with Russian track-and-field and weight-lifting groups, then the flight and so the confessions of former RUSADA capital of the Russian Federation workplace head Grigory Rodchenkov.

How in GODs name is the World Cup of Football starting tomorrow in Russia, when Russian athletes from so bad and evil that they were entirely banned from even carrying their flags or even showing the Russian flag in Winter Olympics just a few months ago!

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 :)
