this is just a sad picture of what it is like to be a man - the guy is a professional athlete, olympic gold medalist, ripped beyond belief, rich-ish, but is that enough for him to feel confident with (presumably) the ladies?

No. I think this sort of thing is why men die so early.

Punk! is right.

Maybe the only clean sprinters in the world are Wariner, Felix, and the 100m guy from some Caribbean island who won the WC one year, wearing knee-high black socks.

What a bunch of crap.

This press release is written to make us feel sympathetic towards Merritt but no one should. He is a professional athlete who is responsible for knowing what he is ingesting, and the make up of those items, in relation to the USADA list. There has also been plenty of talk about male enhancement products as possible performance enhancers (outside of the bedroom!). There is no excuse, and consequently no sympathy.

What a silly thing to say. There may be good reasons for the "strict liability" rule of WADA and USADA, but that doesn't mean that one shouldn't feel sympathetic toward an athlete who inadvertently violates the rule by using a common over-the-counter supplement, especially where there is approximately zero evidence that small quantities of exogenous DHEA provide any competitive advantages for a 400-meter runner (or anyone else). Maybe there's more to the story, and perhaps Merritt did something more sinister, but I'm not inclined to jump to any such conclusions at this point.

I believe he is guilty of cheating..........and whatever the sanctioning broad decides I support it.

What evidence do we have that these were small quantities of DHEA? Merritt is the lone source of our information, and has only said two things: I tested positive, and I have an excuse.

And as far as Wariner regaining the top spot, it's not going to happen. The name is Torrin Lawrence.

Regardless, this is definitely a "performance enhancing" drug. At the very least, he crosses the line a few inches before he normally would.

Other people have alluded to this, but it is important to remember that the only source we currently have for the facts is the statement from Merritt's lawyer. While that doesn't mean these facts aren't true, it should make them a little suspect.
