I read with interest the posting Mel Siff made a few days ago, related to
the perception that some coaches have of sport science.

Mel makes some good points, which I mostly agree with. Falsifying
experiments are important, I agree. Another help, however, may come by
the ability we may have, as biomechanics community to write good consensus
documents, containing only we all agree that is (at the current state of
knowledge) unquestionably true.

One of the objectives of the VRLAB community we are talking about on the
BIONET_VRLAB forum, is exactly this one, to provide the necessary
infrastructure the stream and support the consensus process. I guess sport
is one of the field in which such consensus documents, when made public,
could make the difference. Am I wrong?
