      I think he's talking about ex-champ sprinters not having to run rounds. We should apply this to our middle and distance guys who are defending national champs instead of just world champs or whatever. Maybe it's not fair, but the US needs to fix things up. Maybe he's also talking about how the US federation apparently looks the other way when it comes to sprinters violating drug rules.
