Scottish Ski Team
Date Posted: 11.22hrs on Fri 8 Apr 16
Leaving aside any constitutional issues, would this be good or bad, I am interested to hear thoughts on how well a Scottish national squad would get on in alpine racing.

I mean, if those currently competing for Team GB or not but very close, were instead competing for an equivalent Scottish team, how would the team do?

Note, I am trying to avoid any bigger discussions on independence or not etc.

FIS operates a one passport one team policy for the top levels of competition, so it is a constitutional question.

OK yes I realise that but leaving that to one side, I am talking in hypothetical terms if there was an opportunity for a team, how would it do?

They'd do awright if the erb was legalized as it's been said the current crop of athletes are deficient in cannabinoids and big pharmas gunk slows em doon...

It might work if the team comprised of Gaylick speakers only, hypothetically speaking that is, if you know what I mean. ;-)

Certainly, and when those working in the hills, understand the names of the hills, I might correct their spelling...:-)
