if ya ain't cheatin', ya ain't tryin'

So Iker Martinez got caught cheating. We’re not excusing him as it all seems pretty clear, but stop with the faux outrage. You don’t think cheating has always been happening in this sport? You don’t think it always will?
But of course it’s not enough that he be booted from the regatta with his name and reputation sullied, now the officious pricks at World Sailing (or is it Sailing World?) are attempting to drop a Rule 69 on him. This rule has been so ridiculously broadly defined that if you fart and someone hears it, you’ll be rule 69’d!
Frankly, we’re shocked some hand-wringing twit hasn’t filed one against us…
