My question may be naive, but IOC's dates are there for a reason -why don't they stick with them?

I am assuming it was earlier because of appeals. That being said, only one athlete (that I am aware of) has been selected on a B qualifier but missed the A qualifier by 4/1000th of a second. The marathon runners had a higher than IAAF expectation but have been selected using the IAAF A qualifier.
It has been poorly handled by AA. I would love to say it is the first time AA has done something poorly, Kitkat could confirm or deny this, but it seems poorly thought out schemes are regular occurence by AA and ultimately the athletes and sport are the ones who get hammered.

you might want to win the Olympics before you use your inside voice outside..... Has anyone ever heard of tempting fate? UB wins the gold medal on that feat already.
Does Bolt even have to compete in the Jamaican trials or does he get a free ticket in the 100 and 200 since he won gold last time around? Maybe I'm confusing Olympic rules with World Championship rules.
I believe each country has the ability to decide how they do things according to their Olympic committee. For example remember that our country's Olympic A standard is no where near the International Olympic criteria to go to the Olympics.
