    My bad...in your case and gh's it was questioning. In the case of OneWay, he is dismissive and boastful:

    "I've been saying for the longest while, no USA 1-2"

    Why dont you go out on a limb and make an actual prediction of WHO WILL WIN?

    It's easy to be a naysayer so maybe you can "enlighten" us with your predicted winner. I predict Michael Norman as the gold medalist. Who is your pick?

    What's wrong with being "anti" USA here? I am of course assuming you literally meant anti as in picking against USA as opposed to disliking USA. So again, i ask, what is wrong with being anti-USA?

    Is Gary Hill anti-USA by saying "I wouldn't be shocked to see Gardiner win"?

    Are posts touting USA 1-2 anti-Rest of the World?
    Are posts saying USA will not go 1-2 supposed to not show up on this message board?

    There's nothing wrong with saying someone other than a specific American will win, but anti-USAs (and there have been plenty here) are as unpleasant as anti-Jamaican and anti-Euro posters; they put down American (or Jam or Euro) athletes in general.

    I absolutely share your view and am awaiting "Door" showing me where by your definition of "anti-??" my posting that USA will not be 1-2 in the event falls into the "anti-USA" category.

    Well, this statement sure seems to qualify, at least at face value, don't you think?

    esp. considering that the top two in most people's minds are Americans.

    Kerley looked good there for a 44.2.

    Kerley easily with a 43 as it was one of the easiest finishes of a 44.25 I have ever seen. To beat him in the Final will take a 43-mid - not too many in the field can do that.
