[March 14] Marian Dragulescu is back at team training

Marian Dragulescu has returned at team for training, after 10 days of training with girls team (two days) and at his former Club "Dinamo" , with the male team.

"I have had a private talk with my coach Dan Grecu and we have solved our problem" -Dragulescu told to the press Monday after his first training session.

Last Friday, Dragulescu was still mad on the "injustice made to him", because coach Dan Grecu "have pushed me out of team, after four years of a very good track record of medals on my part, at my first *mistake* - refusing to do a whole floor exercise with all the difficult elements. At my age, there is a problem of proper using my efforts to do what is most important; I'm not any more a Junior, I know what I have to do and I did bring more medals past four years than Mr.Grecu in his whole career'- Dragulescu told to TV crews and journalists.

Dan Grecu is being known at a very severe coach (a B&B combination alike); he was enough honest NOT to impose any "gift tax" on men's revenues (like the 30% tax imposed by Belu at women team); even when he was asked [by RGF officials and others, as suggested] to do so-according to his public statements at a recent press conference.

Because of his "rebel" attitude, Marian Dragulescu was punished in the past by having retained some (undisclosed) amounts from his
ROC monthly allowances. "I will check this time when receiving the allowance, if I will get fined again; this time I will ask for the reason", said Dragulescu two weeks ago, at the beginning of this last conflict.

Seems like coach Dan Grecu, instead of using bad words to punish the team members (like B&B at women team)-Grecu couldn't anyway, since he works with mature men instead of little girls-use the " pay the fines" method. Still, another disputable method, a mixture of dictator from the "old school of coaching" and the newer, more "capitalist" , money-linked, ones.

Dan Grecu have his position secured as National Team coach for 2008 Olympics, having his contract with ROC concluded last month. By contrary, Marian Dragulescu and other fellow mates doesn't have their contracts signed with RGF, which means their future at the team is uncertain. However, having the new elections at RGF next year, some things may change, just in time for next Olympics.
