No, I don't think your idea was silly Linda. If we can have sports that
are obviously different in colour or pattern like those of Mike Suttons,
then there must surely be just as many sports that are not obviously
different. They might differ in disease resistance, or petal size, etc,
but not be immediately seen to be different. I think you have raised an
