Fooling em with the forty

This is a good article that’s points out the absurd nature of some of the Forty Yard dash times that are published. http://www.signonsandiego.com/sports/20050418-9999-1s18forty.html

I actually wrote a post about this topic in relation to Bryan Habana's alleged 10.20 100m best.

I once had a sports scientist claim my first 10m was slow at 1.89 (no gun) and that the rugby guys ran 1.7s. I had to show him they were using a 2 metre headstart and sent on the scientific paper showing the seoul '88 100m breakdown. According to that they were faster than Big Ben!
