    :lol: - A Shawne Merriman is a pussssy thread in disguise. :abq2: :lol:

    Without the "clear", Merriman is about on the same level as Carlos Polk. :icon_eek:

    I'm skeptical for a couple reasons.

    First, it looks like he's wearing pads in the "before" picture but not wearing pads in the "after" one. Pads will make your chest look a lot bigger and your shoulders a lot broader.

    Second, we don't know the perspective. Theoretically they are taken from the same position, but if you have the person standing just a few inches closer to the camera in one picture, and a few inches farther away in the other, it can produce a significant difference in appearance. Everyone's seen "Lord of the Rings", right?

    Lastly, I'm just always cautious when being shown photographs like this. There is no context given, nor dates, nor other objects for reference. It's way to easy to manipulate things like this.

    Besides, Merriman's best games came AFTER he tested positive and was suspended.

    So the loss in muscle mass has nothing to do with his shoulder injury that prevented him from working out in the off-season??

    That's because the effects of the particular roids he took last long. The roids increased the RBC count and enabled him to have superhuman stamina and build huge muscle mass in workouts and have insane endurance. Increased RBC means better flow of oxygen to all body parts.

    THere is a thread about this at the UT also. The site it comes from is famous for doing this stuff. The photos are shoped, and you are all taking it hook line and sinker.

    I call BS. If you look at the top one, it's clearly photoshopped.

    I think most of you forget that steroids do not change bone structure. So you are looking at these and saying 'holly ****! Dude I knew it!' not even realizing that the top picture has a wider set of shoulders than the lower one. Something that is anotomically impossible.

    Yet you mensas cant see that the top picture is shopped because you don't wan to. You never let the facts get in the way of one of your silly conspiracies...

    Conc is correct. It is physical impossibility for your bones to naturally shrink that much in the course of one year.

    Check out the link.

    http://forum.signonsandiego.com/upload/showpost.php?p=2901668&postcount=5

    The face in the "before" pic is exactly the same as the face on the pic from his last year in MD.

    They took the face from that pic and put it onto some random upper body.

    Look at the blurring at the neckline where the neck meets the jersey. That doesn't happen on a real picture.

    And Conc has a valid point, where you can't have someone's frame change that dramatically. If you believe those photos are genuine, somehow his skeletal structure magically shrunk over the course of two years.

    Top pic. Lighting on the face, three point lighting, top down, side and side. Shadow under the jaw line.

    On the shirt. Light from below, shoulders dark, folds cat light. Light from that angle would illuminate the lower jaw eliminating the shadow. Two different pictures.

    Look at the right collar, what is the blue inside the collar? This looks like a chopped image to me. No depth from shirt to neck...

    I think Conc has the right to bring out the "owned" smiley for a few of the doubters on this thread.

    Sooooooooooooo

    steroids make you bigger, AND lose your tats, AND get blacker?

    :icon_shrug::icon_huh::icon_shrug:

    The upper one has definitely been messed with. It looks like they did some elongating thing along with some other stuff.
