to your last reply about hersh if they comeback they might lose something.
it depends on HOW they won the Gold in the first place, (fair and square) doubltful, questionable probably.
how they person (athlete) handles themselves on and off the court of play , and life depends on whether or not the comeback helps or hurts.it also depends on whether they came back once, twice or three time.
by that i mean Brett Favre, he came back, then retired and than attempted to comeback Again. to me the 2nd time isn't a comeback.
it helped Katrina, Brian, because they didn't go in expecting to win and they was out of the competitive field (was pro) for at least 6 years.
But back then they had to turn pro, now I don't know.
if the public like the athelete regardless of what they did. it won't matter.
if they didn't like or respect the athlete it might make a difference.
i don't know
sasha might be hurt, might help.
evgeny he won his gold , i don't know.
i didn't respect Lance's comeback because during he time in (7 titles) he claim it was by himself, not his team, barely heard a word about the team.
Now Alberto won-Lance wants respect for the team. To me he should have done that with his 7, not with alberto's one. also he stated at the beginning this was his last now he is continuing with another team. so no, i don't respect him or comeback. i could care less.
