You just have to live with it, there is never going to be a perfect solution.
lots of good comments, if qualification for the worlds is down to just one shoot (the Euros) then maybe there is a requirement for the team captain to have a few wild card picks? i mean what if our star shooters have equipment issues? are not well and cant attend etc? it just doesn't seem in line with how other sports choose there teams for such a major event.
please note that this is just my personal thoughts, i didnt shoot the euros or any other majors so qualification was never an issue for me personally. I do think its amazing that somebody like andy calpin will not be in the team given his consistency. My comments are not born out of favoritism for andy, i know him and i like him but i also think that by looking at his consistency over the season he should be in the team.
When I was 5 I wanted to be like George Best
At 10 I wanted to be Nigel Mansell
At 40 I wanted to be like Tiger Woods
At 50 I want to be like Gilly
