False start to greatness

As Usain Bolt sprints to greatness,a barrier has been put in his way.The IAAF false start rule has claimed its first big-time victim.Simply put,one start before everyone else,is a automatic DQ.In the pressure-packed environment of world class sprinting,that only adds to the stress already going on before and during the race.Not to mention the drama going on at NBC and Universal.One of their cash cow to attract viewers to the 2011 World T&F Champs telecasts in gone."OMG,What if this happens in the 2012 Summer Olympics?",they must be sweating bullets,dreading the possiblity. NBC/Universal sprint commentator,has been a lone voice against the false start rule since at least 2010.I agree with him,strongly.Take the rule back to one false start against the field,then one against the perp.Let`s work on building T&F back up.
