Deep thoughts on Seb Coe forwarding an email from David Bedford


I am in Houston. I am in Houston to cover the Aramco Half Marathon and the Chevron Marathon. I used to come down to Houston nearly every year, but, this is, alas, my first visit since 2013.

I took a nice, warm walk today, in downtown Houston, and considered the focus of many emails to me. That focus was Seb Coe's action of forwarding email from David Bedford regarding doping.

On twitter, the majority of comments are from those who want to excoriate Seb Coe, and who can look into Seb's heart and know his feelings.

I did this video on Facebook after my walk, and I am, by any description, giving Seb Coe a bit of room on this action or series of actions. We will have to see how this works out.

The mustacheoed one, Mr. David Bedford comes out of his hearing in Parliament on Tuesday with much support. He described the situation and presented his feelings on Mr. Seb Coe's actions.

The British media is noting that Mr. Coe may be dragged into Parliament. Not sure that will happen. If it does, Coe will assume his mantle and the conversation would be fascinating.

More to come on this....
