Per Rojo on the Run Fan radio show, they were told a foul with 5 laps to go where Bumbalough impeded Rupp. Rojo made a good point that he believes they got Bumbalough and Hill mixed up as Hill did make a move that impeded Rupp (I wouldn't DQ him though) with just under 5 to go.http://www.usatf.tv/gprofile.php?mgroup_id=45365&mgroup_event_id=25&do=videos&video_id=105469
That was true. I assumed it was an innocent mistake but I've since been told that Salazar filed a protest.
I've watched the tape and see ZERO CONTACT zero between Bumby and Rupp. This decision therefore is WORSE than the Grunewald DQ.
This Bumby case is actually a big one in my mind now that I think about it. USATF has been allowed to be inept for years because normally their cronyism doesn't involve a race winner like Grunewald. It's a 'minor' issue that people forget out.
This is the type of USATF mistake that normally is allowed to go on for years as it's normally not a huge issue like it was with a race winner in Grunewald. It's always a case like this with Bumby who was what 5th or 7th or

We can't let these little things slide.
I'll have more energy tomorrow and try to get to the bottom of this.
