Aidan Gulla's curator insight, August 31, 1:27 PM
R-  The reputation of this site seems to be reliable as their editor is one of the most connected writers in Britain and was also awarded Britain's sports writer of the year.

A-  The source is in a position to know what its writers are talking about because it specializes in Sports news and has been doing this for a while. This source also has access to all the moral codes and rules in Sports contracts as shown in the article with the breaches of codes in the IAAF councilman and the Nike contract he received.

V-  The source does not have anything to gain or lose by publishing the articles that it publishes.

E-  The source has specialized knowledge in anything sports related and this situation definitely demands it because the councilman that was expelled as a member worked for the International Association of Athletics Federation which specializes in all sports in the area of track and field. The news source, inside the games, is a site with countless articles about corruption, comments from players, and new contract signings from nearly every sport around the world.

N-  There is no bias that I can find what so ever in this article so it is neutral.
