Young Nick D'Arcy has lost his latest appeal to be included in the Olympic Games Team. I don't condone violence but this is basically a case of a young bloke who got on the turps in the pub and did what a lot of us have come close to doing or have done, usually when a little over-lubricated by alcohol and the heat of the moment. So in this era of political correctness and the bizarre need to make an example of someone he's been dumped.
I could understand this better if fisticuffs wasn't an Olympic sport, but it is, and the fact that 'punch your opponent's lights out' remains an Olympic Sport makes a complete mockery of the actions of the AOC. If they were genuinely concerned about setting an example they'd be better off not sending a boxing team.
