Olympic Torch: IOC Rogge Considers Torch Surrender?

AOL are reporting trouble in San Fransisco over a SIX MILE torch relay. Including a bridge protest, an athlete dropping out, and the IOC itself considering calling the whole thing off. Not the Games, just the International portion of the relay.

Think it through guys. That wouldn't really help. The point of the protests in the free world is not (generally speaking) to stop the Games. It is to stop torch relays through Tibet and other contested areas. Let the relays and the protests continue here. If the IOC is to intervene let it be to withdraw permission for Tibet.

Meanwhile French athletes are proposing to wear badges "For A Better World".
