RIGHT! I'll bet we see it in the images from today's 200M backstroke coverage where Peirsol was DQ'd after appearing to have won. Someone who knew what was going on would have noticed the judges confiring in Piersol's lane and tracked him afterwards - esp when the times weren't posted immediately. If there are photos of Perisol's amazement and dejection in the moments after that then you'll know who was either on top of things or simply lucky. THAT"S what knowing the event and how things work is all about. Situational awareness. I'm sure the folks who cover the pols have the same sort of instincts: "Something ain't right" and they'd be all over it.
