          Like I said...Merritt only runs as fast as he has to...he NEEDS Wariner in order to run fast times.

            Tell me about it..........Wariner was right on his heels when he ran that 43.75 in the Olympic final last year.

                I guess Rooney still has some work to do.

                  The point is the Wariner WAS IN that race. Merritt only runs hard when he's racing Wariner. Boom.

                    Evidenced by his 44.05 without JWin the race or his 43.98 that JW wasnt in that race in or his 44.12 in the heats of the Olympics that JW wasnt in.

                    Thats would be 3 of his top 5 fastest times..........ran without JW in the race. Now what was your point again?

                      And WTF has he run this year???? 44.50.

                      If Merritt is PUSHED (like in the 44.05 race with Taylor) or out to make a point (like his 44.12 after JW went 44.1x in the heat right before him in the Olympic heats) then he doesn't run hard. Period.

                      Boom.

                        So now you have acknowledge that he can run fast when pushed OR when JW is in the race OR he is trying to prove a point.

                        Make up your mind. I have proven EVERY point you have tried to make invalid.

                          Without JW, Merritt is nothing exceptional. Yes, he wins races, but he doesn't lay the smack down like a dominant runner should. then again, maybe that's all he's got right now! If JW can get healthy in time for Berlin, look out!

                            Why do you need to do anymore than just win, especially in a one off meet like this. No need for him to exert himself unless its necessary and possibly cause some sort of injury 3 weeks before Worlds.

                              Wow....What more does LaShawn have to prove? Sure a world championship individual gold is missing from his resume. But if you look at his body of work and in particular 2008, it speaks volumes, he is the #1 400m runner in the world right now.
