Subject: 4Ram, there have been many references here to 40 times in the mid-to-high 4's, not to mention the thousands of reports from throughout NFL & college camps of similar, if not better numbers, yet we've never heard from you about it. Then, on 4/18 an article gets published (url inside) making identical points about Ben Johnson and we get this post from you. Please comment on Tad after you've made similar posts throughout every other NFL and college message board and please also at least reference the articles you're "lifting" from instead of passing the ideas/comments off as your own. Thanks

PA Ram

In reply to: 4.Ram 's message, "Nice try, Flash. It's widely accepted that the fastest time EVER for 40 yards is 4.38 seconds by Ben Johnson on his way to setting world record in the 100M in '88. Oh, by the way, Johnson was on steroids at the time, and was stripped of his gold and the record. I know the NFL likes to think most of their players are faster than the world's premier sprinters, but ..." on 00:20:01 05/15/05 Sun

Subject Author Date
Actually an SI article from the early 90s brought my attention to this, and I usually reference it everytime this subject has come up since (with updates to reflect the current world record holders). I don't recall ever seeing a post on 40 times here, which isn't to say the subject hasn't been discussed, but rather I have a job and life which precludes me from logging on as often as others might. Sorry I can't give you the exact date of the SI piece, I threw it out at least 10 years ago as I wasn't expecting to have to write a bibliography after college. (NT)4.Ram12:38:15 05/16/05 Mon
