I usually love the prog, the new format has killed it for me, previous years, 6 heats of 6 men the winning 2 from each heat go through to the final.
This year just 12 men for all 6 days, competing one on one against each other, now surely this is open to fixing, instead of being the fastest time, for everyone, one man can be up against a man who can lift 2 barrels, so only needs 3, in the next heat, you see someone lift 5 against 6, the man who lifts 2 more than the other guy, gets less points. <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />
Each man will have an event he is particually weak at, the taller men, struggle with the Beer Barrells. Where they crouch and lift.
BBC, put Worlds Strongest Man, back to how it was.
