This is moronic. Why should Clayton Murphy "show solidarity" with Nick? Why should anyone if they don't have a problem with the USATF agreement? Nick made the decision on his own, so he can be a big boy and accept the consequences of his actions.
I personally would have liked to have seen Clayton Murphy give up Nick's spot and show some solidarity. It would have been a strong message if every other 800m men's runner turned the spot down.
After all the efforts to publicize this petition, it only has 38 signatures. I'm sure Nike and USATF are feeling the heavy weight of all 38 of those signatures.

Also, an online petition is about as useful as pissing in the wind. But judging from how much you've been spamming this board with the link, you must be covered in urine at this point.
Link? I saw the contract and it does not state the above.

The contract already states when to wear the uniform:
"It is your responsibility to bring your entire Team USA uniform. Additionally, you are required to wear the Nike Team USA apparel…at all team functions throughout the trip, including at the athlete hotel, during training, press conferences, competition, and award ceremonies. Accordingly, please pack ONLY Team USA, Nike or non-branded apparel and be sure to bring your Team USA gear."
It's pretty clear to me.
