    Rather than discussing the Fantasy Game, let's talk anout the FANTASTIC fields!

    Many of them have ALL the Doha favorites in them

    wTJ - all but Ibarg
    mHJ - FINALLY Barshim and Bond reemerge. This should answer lots of ?s about this lackluster mHJ season!
    mPV - everyone!
    wJT - everyone!
    wSP - everyone!
    w400 - Naser but no SMU or Seyni
    m800 - everyone!
    wSt - everyone (but no Frerichs)
    w200 - SMU and ET but no SAFP
    mLJ - everyone
    w1500 - everyone PLUS Hassan
    mJT - everyone!
    w4H - everyone (WR again?!)
    m100 - Everyone PLUS Lyles (no CC)
    m5K - Everyone plus TBek.
    m400 - Still no Samba, but Rai and Warholm is enough. Samba condition?

    No watching this on DVR - this one's gotta be live (TV and Gold).

    I imagine some initial passing by the overlords will alleviate some of the congestion.
    Plus, the Doha final will have 12, so ya better get used to it.

    Also of note, next year's (and 2021's) Zurich meet will be MORE insanely good, as it will host all the DL finales.

    It wouldn’t surprise me if there are at least 6-7 guys left at 5.90.

    Kszczot is missing! So, they don't have everyone in the men's 800.
