It's almost exactly like the NFL seat license thing that has been going around recently. All of a sudden you had to start paying extra just for the right to buy your season tickets. And people whined and moaned about that too, but they paid, just like people doing Ironman.

Luckily, I'm not crazy enough to do this Ironman stuff, so I can look from the outside and chuckle.

Maybe they're hoping that since it was canceled so quickly, everyone will forget. Or think of it as a moment of mass hysteria and hallucination that never really happened.

Competitor.com/Triathlete Magazine is running an online poll about the IM access program. Of the first 175 votes, 88% said they were glad the program was canceled. About 10% said the program just needed to be tweaked. Only 2.29% liked the program (4 votes).
