Reason: There is "no logo of CISS or ICSD in a prominent position of the poster of the 16th Deaflympic Winter Games."
 
In retrospect, between 2000 and 2005, the USADSF-influenced, controlled and incompetently-managed organization of the CISS committed an aggregate of four hundred thirty four ( 434 ) rule violations - or, "dopings" - in the CISS legal system. As clearly seen above, the USADSF, like for the last five consecutive years, continues to be dubiously viewed as the Number One abuser of the CISS legal system. In addition, the key - and self-appointed - members of the CISS Legal Commission are, by irony, coming from the USADSF itself -  Ms. Ammons and  Mr. Jordan.

The three relevant items linked to this ongoing material should not also go unnoticed:
 
First, in comparison, last year the European Deaf Sports Organization ( EDSO ), which is a regional member of the CISS, suspended its two members - Spain and Poland - from the organization because these two countries failed to fully meet their financial obligations before the EDSO

Second, after consultation with an official of the IOC, on October 26, 2005, one well-respected deaf civil rights advocate from the USA, sent a letter headlined
10 QUESTIONS TO DR. DONALDA AMMONS, in which, among the other things, he asked Ms. Ammons to publicly produce a scanned document via the website by supporting the proof that the USADSF fully paid its debts to the CISS.To this minute, however, Ms.Ammons has not responded to this request

Third, recently one deaf Canadian, an attendee of the 2005 Deaflympics in Australia, by questioning the integrity and overall leadership qualities of Mr. Jordan as the CISS functionary, sent an interesting letter to the top officials of Gallaudet University. This letter was titled SHALL GALLAUDET UNIVERSITY TAKE ITS HONORARY DOCTORATE DEGREE FROM JERALD JORDAN?

So far, so bad: no law and order has yet been restored inside the CISS House, in which a world record of  four hundred sixty one ( 461 ) rule violations has already been broken up internally between 2000 and 2006!
 
Despite of the foregoing facts, how can the current members of the CISS Legal Commission  - Ms. Ammons and Mr. Jordan, both slick Gestuno/International Sign Language  talkers and rule offenders themselves  - continue to justify their organization's beautifully-sounding and rampantly-advertised main motto "EQUAL THROUGH SPORT"?
