The NCSA had zero skin in the game or reason to skew the data, nor was it worth wasting money to litigate. After all C.F. was willing to shell out $$$$$$ to protect their appearance as a fun fitness environment which they present incredibly well on the social scope! They're a business, unlike the other which is an organization of true athletic specialists....

I can appreciate your passion for CF, yet I can assure you the % of occurances of injury is highly unacceptable amongst the RESPECTED FITNESS COMMUNITY. This is not to degrade the effort placed by individuals, or the goals, rather it's a reflection of poor structures and understanding of contradictions in basic motion. When was the last time we actually saw Greg Glassman do anything except talk in front of a white board with a dry erase marker? His jobs to sell!

But please please please don't compare C.F. and it's slice and dice approach to strict power lifting, Olympic lifting, or gymnastics..... its a blatant insult to guys like Eddie Hall or Bryan Shaw that master skills, mind muscle connection, form, plus they don't spend excessive time performing GHD crunches throwing their core out of alignment.

That's like comparing ice skating to hockey! Which might I add hockey still is the most talent required sport for multiple reasons, and I don't even live in a state with ice or snow!

So, the 90% and then, 75% injury rate numbers you threw out there were completely false, you now admit. You realize that was the entire intent of my original post, right? You could have copped to it in the first place, but instead you doubled-down and cited a "study" that was retracted because of the level of bullshit contained in it.

Only after being clearly shown to be talking out of your ass do you finally admit to it. Why?

I don't give two shits if you, or anyone else, do CrossFit or hate CrossFit. It's simply not that big of a deal - my last name isn't Glassman or Castro.

Again, there's no need to make asinine claims about why CrossFit is bad - there are plenty of legit reasons to criticize it. Maybe injury rate is one, but don't go overinflating numbers to help bolster a weak (pun intended) argument. You lose credibility.
