I think the issue here is not one of whether Mike Boyle's comments are accurate, or necessary. I think the issue is that rather than individuals asking the Glassman's opinion about hi rep snatches in the use of crossfit they asked someone else. Usually that will bring about an opposing opinion particularly when that person doesn't use the method in question. Opposing opinions are great as long as we are wise enough to assume the point of view from which they were gathered in order to gain an honest perspective into them.
Does that make any sense? Or is my bad english mixing with my bad french?
