Todd Lodwick's comments denigrating his teammate on the Nordic combined squad were despicable. Apparently, Lodwick has learned nothing in his four Olympic teams about sportsmanship. Unfortunately, he is just another professional Olympic whiner.
The essence of a team is full commitment, loyalty and trust. If one is not prepared to give the above, then one should not join. If Todd did not agree with the selection of the team, he should have declined selection privately.
Opinions about a team are aired within the team, not on the front page. Shame on you.
