Should ASO wave the requested $5.5 million fee per country (i read $7m in some other articles) so that the money can go toward rebuilding people's life? and ensure that the Dakar goes through Chile in 2011 to assist with revenue generation?
Is it still ethical to request the ASO fee?
If waved for Chile, what would Argentina say?
Will ASO still want the Dakar to be held in SA without the $dols, or will it turn its back on Latin America and go back to Africa?
3 days on, there is no message regarding the earthquake on dakar.com. is this right?
...for group debate...
