      I have followed Aarons progress since he was a 6 year old in my sons class. He is being treated shabbily to make a point.

      I had never heard of Aaron Cook before I went on the BBC SPORT website. I checked him on Wikipedia. Cant believe they dont want you to go to the Olympics. What they're doing is criminal. You were one of the favorites for gold. YOU MUST GO!!!
