I'm really not going to comment too much because we don't have much to go off, we just have one short audio clip, with basically one side of a story so for me unless you know Mark, Colin, the Stoltman's or Eddie on a personal level and have got multiple sides of the story and more information, I don't think you should have much of an opinion. You also have to keep in mind Colin only has a job with worlds strongest man, he's not the one in charge so if things are the case or not, it may not be his decision. I think it's more the final events that really sway things to an athlete or not though, not so much the seeding thing or what groups people get.

I actually have pretty strong view points on this, or would have if I really cared about the sport now

It's a niche sport and undoubtedly corruption to some degree goes on like many sports. This isn't your kids sports day and people want to make money


Business>sport

Sadly there is corruption in most aspects of human life.

I used to be obsessed with this sport, but my interest has steadily declined. Things like this don't help.

I think I prefer the days of car parks...

wonder what the 'top but not quite top' guys think of this , they would have liked some of their stronger events in the heats .... maybe not get picked alongside 2 sure fire finalists

The only way to end this is from within !!! gonna have to make a few calls and get back lifting

Athletes being on some sort of retainer seems fair enough. But rigging comps to suit them is a bit off. However, how would this work if there’s several athletes being paid if they’re in the same comps? Also, does anyone think any of the recent comps have suited either Stoltman over anyone else?
I actually thought the events at this years WSM did the opposite. No max log. Run in on stones to perhaps take away Toms advantage. Flintsone press to suit others like Licis, Bish etc.
Plus the grip event doesn’t play to the strengths of either Stoltman.
Unless this year WSM are ‘helping’ someone else.
However, this has been done before in comps hasn’t it? Straps for frame carry to suit Big Z more for example.
So, as JT said, we shouldn’t be surprised. Just sounds like this WUS fella stirring it for his own gain.

Luke literally says on the audio "here is the sneaky bit, Colin says we get favourable groups and events like he did with Eddie Hall"

You don't need to jump to your own conclusions based on your own bias, he states what he has been offered.

Can’t say I’ve noticed anything that looks like it’s set up for the Stolts to win though. Colin may have said it, to get them on board? Or Luke may have said it to get WUS fella off his back.

He is Scottish and the giant Live was in Scotland, he doesn't need to say random s**t to get him off his back. He was speaking frankly with a friend.

The latest Stoltman youtube is damage limitation which seems to be working on you.
