I think I was just wearing regular sneakers. I doubt I had a footwear advantage.

There use to be a bunch of pics of him at that game in 2006 on a photo sharing site standing on the sideline and the pavement circle around the stadium. Looked like regular sneakers

I see Leveon Bell was measured at 6-1.3 and 6-1.6
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 28/Sep/18
I don't really see Merriman being as low as 6'2", let alone 6'1.5". He's more 6'2.5" but not higher than that. His 6'2" Pro Day listing could've been rounded down from the 6'2.4" Senior Bowl measurement. No offense to Viper, but he could've either lowballed Merriman's height a bit, or he had a lot of footwear advantage over Merriman when he met him. That's just my opinion though.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 27/Sep/18
@Canson I definitely see 6'2.5" as a possibility. I just don't think he's as low as 6'1.5". Viper maybe right about Merriman. Also, for that supposed measurement, it's very likely Shawne had shoes on.

@Viper I apologize for my rude statement. Since you met Shawne Merriman, I'm sure you knew he was well under 6'4". Based on what you've seen, it's very possible that 6'2" is the best listing.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 27/Sep/18
@Canson

Yeah, maybe I took it too far. I still agree with Merriman being well under 6'4" for sure. 6'3" flat or 6'2.5" wouldn't come out as a surprise. However, I don't think he's as low as 6'1.5".
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 26/Sep/18
@viper

Merriman was leaning and lowering his head down though. The difference would've looked around 6 inches had Merriman stood up better. I don't believe that Cung is 5'9" though, maybe around 5'8.5".
Canson said on 26/Sep/18
Viper: it’s also possible you had a footwear advantage on him. He may only be 6’2 or so and be 6’2.5 or 6’2.75 in shoes or you may have had a thicker shoe than him and been over 6’4 in yours.

You just said it perfectly with Junior Seau
Canson said on 26/Sep/18
@Viper: his pro day was 6’2.4 either 6’2 3/8 or 1/2. He’s prob not less than a full 6’2”. Maybe he didn’t stand straight with you only because that would be an awful lot to lose. Most lose 1/4-3/8” after an hour or so of waking which is why combines are usually about 3/8 or 1/2 above senior bowl measurements

@Dream: to be fair Rudy Gay has played ball with Merriman and called him 6’2.” As well, the MD game Viper is referring to, I saw Merriman at that same game but wasn’t as close to him as Viper was. I assumed his 6’3 or 6’4 listing was prob accurate because I couldn’t get close enough to size him up. While 6’1.5-6’2 may be a bit low, Viper may be closer to the truth than the average person saying 6’4 or 6’3-6’4 range. Viper also guessed a couple other guys more accurately like Rising said. Not always popular guess but sometimes the unpopular guess is the right one. My opinion is 6’2” range and doesn’t dip under if not 6’2.5
viper said on 26/Sep/18
Rudy Gay is a lying liar as well. There was no charity basketball game where he played with Merriman and said he was 6-2
viper said on 25/Sep/18
Merriman can look 6-1 a lot. Dream I take great offense to what you said to me
viper said on 25/Sep/18
Rising that pic shouldn't surprise you.

Merriman looked 6-1.5-6-2 up close
viper said on 25/Sep/18
Junior Seau was listed at 6-5 in high school but was measured at 6-2. He could look only 6-1 a lot wearing flip flops.
Canson said on 25/Sep/18
@Christian: 5’8 May make sense for Cung like Viper mentioned
Canson said on 25/Sep/18
@Dream: I wouldn’t go that far to say he lied because according to a friend who had also met Merriman he’s around 6’2” which could mean slightly over that. I doubt he’s under it. Maybe he wasn’t standing his tallest when he met Viper. But I’d also be hard pressed to say the guy is over 6’2.5. 6’3” is tops and only sometimes do I believe. He generally looks 6’2.5. He doesn’t look 6’1 with Mitchell however. Mitchell looks 6’1-6’1.5 with Walt Williams if he’s 6’6. So Merriman looks about 6’3 in the pic
Canson said on 25/Sep/18
@Viper: I disagree. Comparing Merriman and Mitchell to Wiz and Mitchell, Merriman looks closer to 6’3” which is how he looks if Cung is a legit 5’9”. Mitchell looks 6’1.5 assuming Wiz is 6’6”.
Canson said on 25/Sep/18
@Viper: 6’1 7/8 is possible but 6’2 also is if 6’2 3/8 equivalent to a combine measurement
Dream(5'9.5") said on 25/Sep/18
@viper

I agree Merriman isn’t the full 6’4” as he’s listed, but i want to see an ‘actual’ picture of you and Merriman, unless you didn’t bother to take one. Otherwise, I only believe that you just made up the story of meeting Merriman.
viper said on 25/Sep/18
Christian, the top of Cung's head is above his eyebrows
viper said on 25/Sep/18
Sorry Dream, he looked 6-1.5-6-2 to me back in 2006 at a Maryland-Miami football game up close.

He was measured at 6-2 at his pro day
viper said on 25/Sep/18
I saw a 6-3 listing for Jeff Driskell

The Nike high school combine has measured players almost an inch higher at times

They just called 6-4ish Juan Pierre Paul 6-8 on Monday night football lol

Burt Reynolds was listed at 5-10 in college, yet he's 5-11 here.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 24/Sep/18
@viper

Merriman actually looks easily 6 inches taller than Cung, but Cung might not be a full legit 5'9".
viper said on 24/Sep/18
I believe Merriman would have measured 6-1.7 or so at the senior bowl. They usually measure shorter there.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 23/Sep/18
@viper

the pictures you've posted with Seth Mitchell are the pictures where the floors are elevated.

Those seats are actually on different floor levels. It's not the best picture at all.

I get it. Merriman doesn't look 6'4". However, I wouldn't put him as low as 6'1.5".

You know what? I'm beginning to think you've lied about meeting 'Merriman.'
viper said on 23/Sep/18
A guy on Cung Lee's page as met him and says 5-8. That would make Merriman
6-0 there.
viper said on 23/Sep/18
Shouldn't surprise you Rising. Merriman looks 6-1.5-6-2 up close in person
Canson said on 23/Sep/18
I agree with Frost. Ray is around 6’0.5 max. Maybe 6’0.25 honestly. Merriman claiming 6’5 is a joke and him being listed 6’4 is even a joke like Dwayne Wade

He's under 6-3 Neal

I just had a 5-9 guy at work telling me to lift something up because I'm stronger. I said really? He said yeah look at you. I said thanks for the compliment I guess. He said it's not really a compliment.

Canson said on 21/Sep/18
@Viper: butler is 6’5” as well. And yes Merriman is nowhere near his height. That can’t be 6’4 3/8 if Butler measured 6’5.25. Doubt Butler is a morning height. He’s 6’5” in person
viper said on 21/Sep/18
I can't explain how Gates looks 6-1 there with those guys
Rising - 174 cm said on 21/Sep/18
Meant to comment back when that Rampage Jackson pic was posted since that one surprised me. Liam Neeson looked much taller next to Rampage in that A-Team film they did.
Frost said on 20/Sep/18
You would have to believe Ray Lewis is 6'2 to believe Shawne is 6'4.

Ray barely looks his listed height next to Bill Burr as well.
Dream(5'9.5") said on 20/Sep/18
@viper

Actually, Merriman was walking while Snoop Dog was standing. Also, I don’t see a 2 inch difference.

I’m not saying Merriman is the full 6’4”. He isn’t in my eyes.
Canson said on 19/Sep/18
@Viper: I noticed Jeff Driskel is 6’4” on his combine too. Likely that the measurements on coach scout (at least some of them) are morning heights. That’s unless he was not actually measured at the combine and they used a different measurement. It seems Pro Days and Senior Bowl measurements are done early morning or at least similar to early morning these days
Canson said on 18/Sep/18
@Viper: I saw the video with he and Glazer. Merriman looks nowhere near 6’4 “physically” in the video. Looks 6’2” and Larry Fitzgerald looks taller with him than Merriman
Canson said on 18/Sep/18
@Viper: those are even morning heights likely. Carlos Dunlap’s combine measurement is 6’5 3/4. And it shows 6’5 7/8. I know previously Vincent Jackson was 6’4 3/4 at the combine but 6’4 3/8 at the Senior Bowl (from Coachscout). I think people are likely measured Early morning now a days. Dunlap likely is not noticeably taller than Christian in reality. Maybe edges him by “up to” 1/8”. I see 6’5 3/8 as Dunlap’s low and Christian comes down to 6’5.25 some days

Sam Hubbard shows 6’5 flat on his combine measurement (one source) and 6’5 3/8 on the other. Yet the coach scout has 6’5.4. Not sure if the 6’5.4 means 6’5 3/8 or 1/2 going by that source because I’ve seen .9 there before.

@Viper: I heard someone say over the weekend that Steve Nash was barely 6’0” in person yet he’s listed 6’3”. I always thought he was a good 6 footer not quite 6’1” but potentially sub 6’0” surprises me until you see him with Kobe or MWP or Marion. He may only be 6’1” in shoes
viper said on 17/Sep/18
Samson was never measured at 6-2.2 that draftscout has him.

He was measured at 6-1.3 at the NFLPA bowl and 6-1.7 at his pro day

Malik Jefferson isn't a measured 6-2. He looks 6-0

@Viper: that probably explains why Andrea mentioned that he’s shorter than Merriman. Gates looked taller in a different picture however.

Yeah Davis is 6-2.75 at a low like me
Canson said on 11/Sep/18
@Wayne: I saw the same thing Viper did and Rob posted it above where it says 6’2 274 and he also has a Pro day of 6’2.4 which is 6’2 1/2”. So that’s another thing that says something different but he was listed 6’3” at MD not 6’4. 6’3” was likely in cleats. Honestly, I believe 6’2” range. He’s not as tall as Vernon davis who I’ve met and pegged 6’3”. Now maybe he’s 6’2.75 at a low since I come down to 6’4.25 at a low and used to class myself 6’4.5 but it wouldn’t surprise me if he’s 6’3” on the nose either. 6’3.25 was his combine height (in the early morning). I’d be hard pressed to believe that Merriman is over an inch taller than him. Davis looks taller.
Andrea said on 11/Sep/18
Wayne, that 6'2 4/8 figure comes from couchscout, an unofficial site whose the owner himself admitted that its data aren't always reliable and exempt of errors... Plus, if you take a look at that couchscout page that has Shawne down at 6'2 4/8, you can also see Shaun Phillips at 6'3 1/8, Nick Hardwick at 6'3 6/8 and Antonio Gates at 6'3 4/8, which certainly makes Shawne's "measurement" quite hard to believe, considering that he looks easily taller than all of them: Click Here Click Here Click Here

Sometimes I wonder If Gates is even 6-3. He doesn't look it here with 6-4.5 Rivers.

If we are gonna draw lines on hats, Luis Castillos hat is clearly taller
viper said on 9/Sep/18
There is no way Jaylon Smith actually measured 6-2.

Heck, he physically looks shorter than RG3
Canson said on 9/Sep/18
@Viper: I think Dean would be
Canson said on 9/Sep/18
@CMillz: I never met him up close like Viper but saw him from a few hundred feet and I honestly couldn’t tell. Now I have a friend who has met him up close and he had him as 6’2”ish. I asked him was he as tall as me and he said he wasn’t. My guess really is 6’2.5 or 6’2.25 maybe. I wouldn’t have guessed as low as Viper did but maybe he really is. I will say that he looks physically shorter than Vernon Davis who I have met. I would put Davis as roughly 6’3”.
Canson said on 9/Sep/18
@Viper: i Think Castillo (6’2.6) would be more 6’2 1/4 or 3/8. He probably is similar with Merriman or maybe at most 1cm difference. Jackson measured 6’4.75 combine and 6’4 3/8 at the Senior Bowl as we have both numbers as hard evidence. So Jackson is similar to me in that I also measure 6’4.75 at about an hour out of bed and 6’4.25 to 3/8 at a low. Merriman based on the pic and everything else, likely would’ve really been 6’2 3/8
viper said on 8/Sep/18
Dean easily looks an inch taller.
viper said on 8/Sep/18
cmillz he was measured 6-2 at his pro day.

@Viper: I don’t think Muhtadi has 3cm on Merriman. Maybe 1/2” or 2cm. They look relatively close in height to be honest
Canson said on 6/Sep/18
@Viper: I only saw him from a distance and not for long but he didn’t look that low (6’1.5-6’2) imho although 6’4” seems too high now that I see more pics. I didn’t really know what he was but just assumed he was 6’3 or 6’4” because those were his listings. I’d still say 6’2” minimum
Canson said on 6/Sep/18
@Viper: we really don’t know when he measured 6’2.4 as pro days have been held afternoon as well. But even 6’2 1/2 would make him likely 6’2” flat or 6’2 1/8. You may be right in that it could be early morning as the 6’4 3/8 was likely 6’2 3/8 in reality. I can’t see him below 6’2” flat but you met him not me
cmillzz said on 6/Sep/18
@Canson, what do you think his true barefoot height is in the afternoon?

Lol at Andrea drawing a line from a baseball cap.

Canson don't you agree Dean looks over an inch taller easily.
Canson said on 6/Sep/18
@Viper and Andrea:

To be fair Viper, there are pics where he does look 6’3 maybe even 6’4”. He doesn’t look 6’2” in all of them. And to Andrea, he does look 6’2” in just as many pics as he does 6’4”. We can’t say just because he looks 6’2” that it’s a bad pic which is what you are effectively saying. That’s biase
viper said on 6/Sep/18
He's never seen 6-3 in his life. So he's not 6-2-6-3. He's just 6-2 MAX
viper said on 6/Sep/18
Being listed 6-3 in college football doesn't mean anything? I just spit out my drink from laughing. They aren't going to underlist him. He's not that height though since he measured 6-2 and looks about that in person.

"Let's underlist a huge football player at 6-3 even though he's 6-4"

Gives even more credence how laughable his fake 6-4.3 is
viper said on 6/Sep/18
Given that he measured 6-2.4 early morning. I think he's 6-1.75. And he looks it up close up person

I can measure 6-5 in regular shoes with my toes raise up some at 6-3.

With orthopedics and more socks, I might be able to hit 6-6.
Andrea said on 5/Sep/18
No, he doesn't "consistently looks 6-2 most of the time", viper. At all. The majority of pics (or clips) where he can look as low as that are pics with bad angles or pics where Shawne is clearly disadvantaged (like that terrible clip you posted with Vernon, who does look comfortably shorter than Shawne when he has no big camera advantage over him Click Here Click Here ). And although there are certainly a few decent pics where he can look as low as 6'2-6'3 (like that one with Carmelo), they are a lot less than those where he looks well over that range.
As for the rest of your overwhelming evidence for which, according to you, Shawne can't certainly be over 6'2-6'3...
1) The fact that he was listed at 6'3 in college proves nothing because it all depends on where they took that figure from. It's not any different than saying that someone like Ibrahimovic, who certainly isn't less than 194, can't be over 192 because he was listed almost everywhere at that mark a few years ago (and he certainly was already full-grown back then);
2) Same story with those 6'2 descriptions (not measurements, like you love to say);
3) It is true that that Rudy Gay guy kinda called him 6'2 but we don't know A) if he really ever met him, B) how good he is at estimating heights and C) the whole context of that comment he made on Twitter, so again it proves nothing;
4) Same story (and even more so) with your ALLEGED meeting him, which I'm not even going to argue about.
So no, NOT enough evidence has been provided to downgrade him to 6'2.5, let alone 6'2. I'm sorry, viper.
P.S. I love how you keep posting photos that, if anything, prove that he can't be as low as you say he is (without even realizing it), like that one with Dean Muhtadi (just to mention the most recent one). In fact, not only Shawne doesn't look any shorter than him, but he does look a bit taller, and that's with Dean's head being NOTICEABLY CLOSER to the camera than Shawne's: Click Here

@Andrea: we actually did not see him measured. We simply heard the nurse read off a number. We don’t see whether or not he’s barefoot either

@Wayne: it’s the same as Julian Peterson who is listed 6’3” in the NFL and was “supposedly” measured 6’5 1/8. The listing is going to be more accurate in a case where he’s listed lower than supposed measurement
viper said on 3/Sep/18
Merriman has a footwear advantage with 6-2 Laith and still looks a bit shorter being closer to the camera
viper said on 3/Sep/18
He consistently looks 6-2 most of the time, especially on video. He clearly looks shorter than 6-3 Vernon Davis and 6-3 Randy Moss on video.

He was listed 6-3 in college. That means he's shorter than that. And alas, he was measured at 6-2. I saw him at 6-1.5-6-2. Rudy Gay saw him at 6-2.

They aren't going to underlist him at
6-3 in the first place. They would over list him. As he was measured at 6-2.

Enough evidence has been provided to downgrade him to 6-2, not just 6-2.5. But 6-2.5 would be a decent start.

Canson said on 3/Sep/18
@Andrea: what you said is partially true. He does have “2 measurements” but as far as how he stands with guys that size, there are several pics that Viper and I have both posted where he looks 6’2.5. That’s your opinion that he doesn’t. But to support what you’re saying he also looks 6’4 and 6’3 In some pics. But you can’t simply ignore or disregard pics where he does just because there are pics where he doesn’t. That would be like someone saying he never looks 6’3/6’4 range when he actually can at times
Canson said on 3/Sep/18
@Wayne: the NFL isn’t going to underlist someone’s height by an inch. Hernandez is 6’1”
Myself said on 2/Sep/18
I'm quite surprised Rob lists him at 6'4...

It's like my friend that has been measured by doctors with a stadiometer and also by a computer while doing an exercise where he had to put his leg on something the height of a chair and than stand up and go back down (for some minutes), for the heart or something, and resulted 178 cm in both (and was also listed as 179 cm somewhere else), but i always had some doubts about him being that height really...and i finally measured him 175 cm multiple times, even his mother agreed that he didn't look as tall as 178 cm...I bet he would be listed at least 176.5/177 on this site! (unless Rob would have met him) (also consider that the 175 cm measurement wasn't even his lowest probably, we didn't do much physical activity before measuring, so he could even be more like 174.7-174.8 at a normal low)

"viper said on 28/Aug/18
Disagree. Enough evidence has been presented to have him listed at 6-2.5 max"
It is quite the opposite, viper. In fact, not only he was supposedly measured over 6'4 on two different occasions (one of which was also filmed), but he also looks noticeably taller than 6'2.5 with way too many people (the majority of whom was measured as well) to be as short as that...
viper said on 1/Sep/18
This guy was listed at 6-6 in high school Click Here

He's now listed at 6-3 by UCLA. He may be only be 6-2.
Canson said on 1/Sep/18
@Rob: to Viper’s credit, he makes a good point. Here is Julian Peterson’s combine (6’5 1/8) but the NFL says he’s 6’3 as does Wikipedia. That is likely what happened with Merriman. We also saw Aaron hernandez get a 6’2 3/8 combine yet he is only 6’1”

Click Here
Canson said on 1/Sep/18
@Viper: I got a strong 6’3 impression from Suggs but maybe he had a footwear advantage on me. Worst case, with that being said, is he’s like 6’3” flat probably
viper said on 1/Sep/18
Even If he wasn't measured 6-2 at his pro day we would know he would be no taller than 6-3 with his 6-3 listing
Wayne said on 1/Sep/18
@canson in the case of Hernandez the listings are dubious but the called measurement seems absolutely fair, he always stood well next to his 6'4+ fellows patriots
Back to his 6-3 listing in college, I think it was a billed height, they surely don't get measured
viper said on 31/Aug/18
He's not 6-3 either
viper said on 31/Aug/18
I've seen Merriman look 6-1.5-6-2 up close. Do yeah that's obviously a dubious measurement.

And what about his 6-2 measurement Wayne
Canson said on 31/Aug/18
Moss is shorter than Brady. No way he’s a legit 6’4”. Maybe max he is 6’3 3/8 like his combine lists him. Maybe this is his afternoon height as opposed to a morning height
Canson said on 31/Aug/18
@Viper: I can guarantee that I’d be taller than Merriman or Boris in person just by looking at them and the difference would be to where I could see it (meaning at least 1”) with both and likely more with Merriman. My buddy who’s met him said he’s not as tall as I am
viper said on 31/Aug/18
Julian Peterson was measured at 6-5. He's really 6-3. You are way out if your eme went here Wayne
Mickie said on 29/Aug/18
He's not 6'4"
Canson said on 29/Aug/18
@Wayne: well that’s not mismeasuring that could be improperly stating. Remember Aaron Hernandez was listed 6’1 and “supposedly measured” 6’2+. He was a tight end where height does matter so they wouldn’t understate him
viper said on 29/Aug/18
He was listed 6-3 in college. Sorry Wayne
viper said on 29/Aug/18
I've seen Merriman up close and he looked 6-1.5-6-2. He's nowhere close to 6-4.

And there are dubious measurements in the NFL and NBA.
viper said on 28/Aug/18
6-3 Matt Judon looks physically taller than 6-3 Suggs to me

I'm sure the 6-3.3 is early morning. He could get down to 6-2.75
viper said on 28/Aug/18
Disagree. Enough evidence has been presented to have him listed at 6-2.5 max
Wayne said on 28/Aug/18
Come on guys, there's no way athletes get mismeasured by 2 inches during the combine, the most I can buy is 1/8"
He has to be at least 6'4"
Canson said on 27/Aug/18
@Viper: while 6’2” range fits him the best, I would say Rob moving him to 6’3” would even be a good start. 6’3.5 is even a bit high but much better than 6’4”. I just don’t see Rob making a move to 6’2 or 6’2.5 when even Christian commented on something earlier on as a reference and it never made its way into his caption. Anything short of Merriman himself admitting to being 6’2” or Rob meeting him would not be satisfactory enough for Rob to do that. Even then it would likely be 6’2.5 as opposed to 6’2” even if he actually does get that low (possible but not 100% sure if he does).
Canson said on 27/Aug/18
@Viper: was Champ measured at 5’11 at the combine? If so he’s under the mark as the combine is earlier in the day. At times it can look 3” others closer to 4”. Moss has some camera advantage but he’s still clearly taller than Merriman
Canson said on 27/Aug/18
@Rampage: yea right around :20 he looks 6’2” honestly. I don’t know what time Moss measured but his combine is 6’3 3/8. That may be morning but maybe not. Either way Merriman comes to 6’2 or 6’2.5 with him

@Viper: always thought he was 6’1”. I’ve actually met guys like Charles Mann in person and they’re way taller. Mann looked around 6’6” when I met him when I was younger. Worst case 6’5 range. Vernon Davis also looks “about 6’3”.

Canson said on 20/Aug/18
Mayfield actually has two measurements 6’0 5/8 and 3/8. The 5/8 is an early morning whereas the 3/8 was Senior Bowl at a different time but that would likely put him for Celebheights purposes at about 6’0.25 since we use afternoon heights as the standard. Merriman is nowhere near 4” taller than he is. That’s about a 2-3” max without seeing footwear or posture. Merriman has a slight chance at 6’3” but likely is 6’2.5

Not a coincidence that 6-2 comes from 4 different sources.

The 6-2.4 from couchscout, the 6-2 from NFL.com, and the 6-2 in the paper.

The fourth one was from another NFL columnist that I can't find anymore. Specifically said "Shawne Merriman measured at 6-2 and weighed in at 274 pounds"

Weird thing is that he looked 6-1ish with Bush in a pic from 2008.
Andrea said on 16/Aug/18
As always, you are missing the whole point (and twisting my words indeed), Christian. I'm not criticizing you for calling certain celebs to be lowered based on a pic, but I'm criticizing your contradiction and hypocrisy in saying that you can't gauge celebrities' heights from pics (which, as I said, it's not true) when you are the same guy who often comments that this or that celebrity needs a downgrade just because of one pic (or clip).
And if you paid attention to my comments (which is the least you should do IF you want to have a discussion with me), you would have seen that I did post the couchscout owner's reply, where he says what I said: Click Here And once again, you speculate about things you don't know, considering that you have nothing to prove that couchscout data, and in particular Shawne's measurements, come from NFL. So, if anything, you're the one who is "making up random stuff and jumping to conclusions yet again", which is not surprising anymore, considering that's what you love doing: accusing other people of things you're guilty of. And I don't see how I would embarrass myself by saying that Shawne often has pretty bad posture, considering that he really doesn't seem to be standing as tall as he can in many pics. Look at him with Trump: Click Here He doesn't look over 6'3 there, assuming that Trump is around 6'0.5, but I see a good 4 inch difference between the two if Merriman stood straight, and I'm pretty sure you agree with me, don't you? 😊
As for that clip with Kassim, again, even at the minute you posted it (1:16), Kassim is standing a bit closer to the camera, and despite that, the difference still looks less than 2 inches: Click Here And it is not true that that is the best part of the clip to gauge the height difference between them because there's a point where they're standing more equidistant from the camera and the difference doesn't look that much, just like the other pics I've posted: Click Here

@Christian: lol him saying he’s 6’5” is an insult to you and being listed 6’4 here is an insult to both of us and Viper when Viper is taller than he is lol. 6’3.5 seems too high for him imho. I used to be able to say he may be 6’3” but that looks very shaky next to Melo or Seagal
Canson said on 13/Aug/18
@Rising: I wonder about that video. It almost appeared staged imho. It was almost too convenient but you mentioned the variable that we don’t know which is footwear. I would say Seagal can look 6’3” maybe 6’3.25 and Merriman is maybe an inch shorter maybe even 2cm. I can certainly say that a 6’2.5 is a good start for him. Maybe 6’2.25 even
viper said on 13/Aug/18
Merriman looks the same height as this 6-2 interviewer. Click Here
Rising - 174 cm said on 12/Aug/18
He does look near an inch shorter than Seagal in that pic so assuming no boots for Seagal, he actally looks around the 6'2.4" figure with him. But if we assume the recent measurement is accurate then that would mean it'd have to be early and he'd have to be wearing some kind of big footwear like Timberlands or Air Max, both of which add around 1.4". It's really too bad the video didn't show feet.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 12/Aug/18

I agree, he should have a 6'2.5" listing. Andrea even believes he's 6'3.5". Him being listed 6'4" is an insult to all the legit 6'4" celebs.

Rob needs to bring him down to 6-2.5, even though I think he's 6-2. He was listed at 6-3 in college so he's not over that obviously.

Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 6/Aug/18
@Andrea

If you're keep on saying that a decent pic is enough to figure out anyone's height, you have no room to criticize me for calling certain celebs to be lowered based on a pic, (and I typically only do that with pics of celebs standing next to Rob because Rob's pics are generally "decent"). But with the rest of celebs, I try to find more pics of them before making such judgements. As for Gal Gadot, I didn't say that Kelly Ripa needs a downgrade. I just said that IF Gal Gadot's 5'9.5" then Kelly Ripa needs a downgrade, since the difference between the two looked more than 7". I didn't jump to conculsions about Gal's height, so I didn't jump to conclusions about Kelly's height either. Gal being 5'9.5" is a merely a possibility. I love how you try to twist my words but continue to fail because I have an answer for it each time.
And just because the Couchscout owner said (which can't even be proven because you haven't shown us the actual message so I don't completely rule out the possibility of you fabricating it, but I'll just go by what you said) that "the less he trusts a source, the higher the BS factor", doesn't imply at all that the measurements don't come from NFL. You're making up random stuff and jumping to conclusions yet again. And the "bad posture" thing is getting really old, and I suggest you, for your own sake, to stop using that because you're embarassing yourself. It's just an easy cop-out you use when he looks around 6'2"-6'3". There are PLENTY of pics where he has normal posture and still looks 6'2"-6'3".
And believe it or not, this part was the closest to equal when it came to the camera angle in this clip, as you can see that Shawne and Kassim were standing about equal distance from the camera Click Here if you rewind, the eariler parts of the clip had a more unequal camera angle. I didn't cherry pick the clip like you're accusing me of doing. I'm being as fair and unbiased as possible. If I really wanted to make Shawne look shorter, I would've picked the earlier seconds of the clip like this Click Here but I didn't do that. As for the Peyton Manning clip, Peyton looks slightly shorter than Kassim even when they had equal camera position Click Here It was only from 0:56-57 where Peyton looked taller because he stood closer to the camera than Kassim. Sorry but your argument proved nothing. Nice try though.

@Viper: yes and Hernandez is listed 6’1”. They wouldn’t do that if he were really 6’2”. Just goes to show what you said is likely true. NFL measurements are just as F’D up as NBA. For Merriman however he’s not 6’2 in footwear. If he were 6’2.25 early AM it would be barefoot. My guess is that he had footwear on when the lady measured him and that it was relatively thick. Maybe really like 6’4 3/8 or something rounded up and it was likely in the morning. I could buy him being 6’3.25 out of bed and 6’2.5 at a low or maybe he loses a full inch during the day and is 6’3.5 out of bed. I actually went on a walk for 45 min yesterday not long after waking up then did some work in the garage and yard including lifting heavy items. I measured after about 3-4 hours and was not far off of my normal low. I was right around 194cm (6’4.25-.375) at just 1030 am or so after waking at 7am and my usual low is 6’4.25-.3

Last time I was measured by a nurse on a stadiometer two years ago, she let me keep both my shoes on and the hood on my sweatshirt up.

Canson said on 4/Aug/18
@Viper: at least with Bowser it’s relatively close. 6’2.3-.5 is close to 6’2.6. For Merriman you have 6’2.4 and 6’4.3 which aren’t close

I remember first getting measured at the doctor with my shoes on right out of high school for my college physical. It was accurate.

Newsome was measured at 6-2 1/2 back in the day.
Canson said on 3/Aug/18
@Vegas: the nurse at my doctor’s office as well as my wife’s nurse have both tried to measure us in shoes. They did measure my wife in shoes at around 5’9 (a bit earlier in the day) and my nurse said to me “you don’t have to take them off I will just estimate the thickness of the shoe”. Long story short my wife is 174.2cm out of bed and 172.0 at a low (5’7.717). Essentially 5’7.75 not 5’9 like they listed her on her physical. For me, I didn’t oblige and took them off as it makes no sense to estimate when you can just do it properly. As well, I’m not sure if you pay attention, but Rob said that that happened to Jenny at a local hospital. And Osgood is clearly still taller than Merriman even taking that into account so Christian isn’t wrong. But you’re inconsistent. On the Rock’s page, the Rock was closer to the camera with Ndamukong Suh in the pic that you posted on his page and you argued that it didn’t matter. yet when we saw the better pic of them it was a clear 1.5- 2” difference between them. Yet with these two you are arguing it.
Canson said on 3/Aug/18
@Viper: with regards to Lights Out, he has a 6’2.4 Pro Day, a 6’3” college listing, and a 6’4 3/8 combine listing. Given the fact he was listed 6’3” in college, I would assume that he’s not 6’4”. The 6’2.4 Pro Day looks like the best bet. If he’s really as low as you says him, it would mean that the 6’2.4 was as a result of him having laid down before the measurement at the Pro Day or having worn extra socks etc. my thinking is that he just wasn’t standing his tallest with you. In regards to what Andrea said about him looking taller with other measured people, he can at times. However, that’s the same with Charles Barkley. First, we must remember to knock 3/8-1/2” off most people who have measured at the combine. In addition some of these may be erroneous but also it Merriman has a footwear advantage or ground level, it will make him appear taller. What I do know is that Barkley in person to people I know have met him is “similar” to me in height. Meaning if he’s taller (he likely was at his peak), it’s maybe 1/4” or a cm and is 6’4 1/2 peak (similar to the 5/8 he measured). Yet he almost always looks taller in pics which is likely due to footwear and camera angle being substantially bigger than most people he’s with in pics
Canson said on 3/Aug/18
@Viper: Newsome is also 60 years old and may have lost height. Looking at Mosely with Ray, the weak 6’2” (6’1.5 or 5/8) looks about right especially being that he measured 6’2” in the morning.

Canson said on 3/Aug/18
@Viper: that doesn’t make sense, I agree. Hernandez is listed 6’1 but has 3 6’2” measurements.

As for Suggs, I’ve met him before. He’s definitely not “almost 6’4”. The best case is he’s a strong 6’3” as he looked about an inch shorter than me in person

Couchscout has Terrell Suggs at 6-3.7. That may be a different measurement.

Yeah, but Hernandez was measured over 6-2 3 times at the combine, senior bowl, and pro day.

Were they wrong all 3 times? It doesn't make sense
Canson said on 2/Aug/18
@Rob: this is an example of a combine measurement being erroneous right here. The late Aaron Hernandez who “supposedly measured 6’2.3” yet was listed 6’1” his entire career. I mean to put it in words and I know that Viper and Christian and Rising will all see where I’m coming with their knowledge of American Football, Hernandez played Tight End which is a large man’s position. 6’1” is very small for a TE. They wouldn’t purposely underlist him if he really is that tall. What it comes down to is that Combines are just as bad in the NFL as they are in the NBA at overlisting. Chris Cooley a former Washington Redskins player even said as much before that he is “a hair under 6’3” or “right around 6’3” yet was measured 6’3.5 at the combine. He said this on his radio show

Not sure what kind of doctor would measure a person with shoes on a stadiometer. My local doctor in a tiny rural area makes you take your shoes off.

Christian 6'5 3/8", Merriman was drafted in 2005 so why was he playing the 2006 senior bowl? As far as your video clip with Kassim Osgood goes (which I also posted months ago), Osgood is closer to camera for most of it like he is with Peyton Manning. When they are equidistant from the camera they look close in height

Hey Canson, have you noticed just how much bigger Merriman was in 2005. He was a legit 272-275. His neck was so much bigger it's insane. He joked about it in a pic then from that era.

I posted a pic a long time ago of him with a 6-2 guy from Myspace where they looked the same height. He looked Batista big in his cutoffs
viper said on 1/Aug/18
Personally I've been measured lower and higher at the doctor. Though to be fair that's a better measuring device then at my doctors office. Much better actually.

Don't think she's making it up. She could be reading it wrong plus gigantic footwear on Merriman's part. There have been NBA players who have measured 2.75 more inches in foowear.
Canson said on 31/Jul/18
@Rob: you should add “what he claimed to measure in this clip”. There is no guarantee that he actually measured that high or that it was barefoot. We didn’t see the measurement. That’s like taking his claim in a video at face value and when someone like Charles Barkley has an official measurement of 6’4 5/8, it’s negated
Editor Rob
Well it was the lady who was reading it...I'm assuming she hasn't been 'bought off' and is an honest employee of the fine establishment they are taking the video in.
Canson said on 31/Jul/18
@Christian: I think your pic with Osgood is more of how he looks. You can also see with Tomlinson and Merriman, which is only about 4-5” below. LT measured 5’10.25 at the combine so may just be 5’9.75 or 7/8. Merriman is not 6” taller than Tomlinson

Viper posted a pic on 16 March 2018 of Merriman and LT which only shows about a 4-5” difference
Canson said on 31/Jul/18
@Andrea: you make good points but you don’t mention the other pics where Merriman clearly looks 6’2” range such as with Rosario Luis Castillo/Vincent Jackson, then with Shawn’s Kemp he surely doesn’t look 6’4” either. There are just as many out there that align with a 6’2-6’3 range measurement as there is 6’4”. Objectivity would include taking all of those into account but you don’t mention any of those occurrences in your responses to Christian. Only the pics where he looks 6’4 to you.
viper said on 31/Jul/18
Don't the Ewtaun Moore pics really prove Merriman is nothing more than 6-2. 6-2.5 Etwaun looks so much taller.
Andrea said on 30/Jul/18
Maybe, Christian, but the fact that I guessed Morrissey and many other celebrities near the height they turned out to be when Rob eventually met them goes to show that it is not true that pics are not enough to gauge celebrities' heights. As I said, if they are decent pics, they actually are (enough). And don't lie, because you do often call for certain celebs to be downgraded based on a single pic (or clip). That's exactly what you do with (certain) celebrities that Rob takes a picture with, when you say that they are overlisted and that they need a downgrade just because they look shorter than their listings next to Rob. Or what you do when you come out with certain comments like this one you submitted on Gal Gadot's page: "If Gal's 5'9.5", then Kelly needs a half inch downgrade.". And that's just one example, but I could go on and on...
As for couchscout, it is not true that those measurements come straight from official NFL measurements. The owner of couchscout himself did say that his data come from many sources, and that, in his own words, "the less he trusts a source, the higher the BS factor", so you're completely wrong about it.
And the fact that Shawne looks taller than 3 guys that are supposed to have been measured near an inch taller than him, according to the same couchscout, is just a giveaway that that 6-2.4 figure (which, again, means 6'2 4/8, and not 6'2.4 like you keep saying) is very likely an error. And while it is true that that figure doesn't seem impossible next to Carmelo and a few other guys, as I said, I tend to rule it out because there's no way a 6'2-6'3 guy can look taller than so many 6'2-6'3 and 6'3-6'3.5 MEASURED people. Also, bear in mind that any person can look shorter than they are by dropping posture (which, in Shawne's case, most of the time certainly isn't the best posture in the world), but they CANNOT look taller than they are with any kind of posture.
As for Kassim, not only it's hard to gauge the height difference between him and Shawne from a clip like that, but you also posted it at a point where Kassim is standing closer to the camera. I wonder why (no, I actually don't)... Mind you that with an advantageous position like that, the same Kassim can even look taller than someone like Peyton Manning (and I doubt he really is): Click Here That being said, there's really no need to make things harder with a clip like that, considering that there are already a few good full-body shots of them together where you can tell that the difference between them isn't that much, and certainly nowhere near 2 inches: Click Here Click Here

@Kurtz: he lies like the Rock as well
Canson said on 29/Jul/18
@Christian: that was Pro Day measurement but I agree with everything you said! The Combine measurements are no more legitimate than Pro Day

He is the same as the rock.

@184guy: I agree on Melo. Merriman looks 6’2 with him and Melo is a real 6’6” guy in person. But imho he didn’t look 6’4 with Brazelale more 6’3” range. But Brazeale’s height is tricky as well. At times he looks closer to 6’6” than 6’6.5. Example with Anthony Joshua. Joshua’s height is cleare though (weak 6’6) 6’5.5-6’6 arena
Canson said on 28/Jul/18
@Viper: given the fact that Merriman has a significant footwear advantage on him you’re right. And people can’t use the “excuse” of it’s on grass etc because they aren’t. Merriman does have his legs spread a bit but the shoe diff would negate a lot of that
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 27/Jul/18
@Andrea

We already went through this during the Boris debate. I've said it before and I'll say it again, just because your estimation of Morrissey and other celebs may have turned out to be true, doesn't mean that it's the case for Merriman. And I don't call for certain celebs to be downgraded based on a single pic. I look at many other pics before making judgements. Sometimes I just don't mention them in my comments.
As for the "Couchscout" measurements, they're not any less reliable and accurate than the NFL Combine measurements. In fact, the "Couchscout" measurements come straight from official NFL measurements. In Merriman's case, his 6'2.4" measurement came straight from the 2006 NFL Senior Bowl. If you're gonna say that "Couchscout" measurements have errors, you're also admitting that the official NFL measurements have errors, including the same NFL Combine measurements that you hold dearly.
And if you show me the reason why the 6'2.4" measurement is an error is because he looks taller than Phillips, Hardwick and Gates, then I can easily show you the reason why the 6'4 3/8" measurement is an error is because he looks easily 2" shorter than 6'4 7/8" measured (who's more 6'4.5" at his low) Kassim Osgood Click Here , Looks around 1.5" taller than 6'1.5" measured (who's more like 6'1 1/8" at his low) Adrian Peterson Click Here , and looks around 4" shorter than 6'6.25" measured Carmelo Anthony Click Here (even if Shawne had a footwear disadvantage in that pic like you try to suggest, the difference would very likely be no less than 3.5") Shawne looks around his 6'2.4" measurement in all of those pics. It goes to show you that he can look 6'2.5" in some pics, and 6'3.5" in some others. We're just gonna have to accept the fact that we disagree on what Shawne's true height is.
Andrea said on 27/Jul/18
6-2.4 means 6'2 4/8, which is exactly 6'2.5, so I don't see how I'm wrong, viper. I know that heights are not your forte, but apparently even maths isn't.
Andrea said on 27/Jul/18
I highly doubt they're standing with similar postures there, 184guy, but even if that was the case, if anything, Shawne does look comfortably taller than Armie if you look at the top of their heads... In any case, I would never use a picture like that to draw any conclusion for the reasons I have stated before.
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 26/Jul/18

Next to Kassim Osgood, Merriman looks max 6'2.5" as well.

Canson said on 26/Jul/18
@Christian: I don’t give full weight to my friend meeting Merriman or Viper, either. However, one of the posters Andrea met on Twitter claims to be 6’1” and also claimed that Marcus Allen was the same height as him when Viper asked him, and Allen is clearly taller. In addition, here is proof below with the same guy meeting Martavis Bryant who measured 6’3.75 at the combine. Bryant is more like 6’3.25 or 6’3 3/8 if he measured 6’3.75 an hour out of bed. Even at his morning height the guy isn’t even close to 6’1”.

@Viper: Fisher is at least 6’0”. He’s not significantly shorter than President Obama and Kobe isn’t almost 6’” taller than him. He may even be 6’0” and change. nonetheless, he is only 2” shorter than merriman which puts him around 6’2” Maybe 6’2.5 and that is one of the best pics that we have seen of Merriman. He’s definitely not 6’4” there.

@Andrea
They are with similar posture ( the defense stand used in boxing ) ;Armie is nearer
the camera but the angle advantage is for Shawne;and he is in a 2,5-3cm footwear advantage , yet they look about the same height. Pretty hard to see them just half inch apart. I believe shawne could be around 6'3.5 but I must admit , he is very hard to catch . Looked only 6'2 with Carmelo but looked just over 6'4 with Dominic Breazele.
Canson said on 25/Jul/18
Not the best way to gauge heights from this video but based on how Michael Irvin looks in front of the camera as well as Baker Mayfield, it’s clear that Irvin and Merriman look very similar. I’ve met Irvin in person and he looked “about” 6’2” in person. If he’s under, it’s nothing significant maybe 6’1.75 is an absolute worst case

Click Here
Canson said on 25/Jul/18
@Viper: he does not look 6’3” with Melo, But he’s not as low as 6’1” with him either. He’s 6’2” range with Melo. Melo measured 6’6.25 at the Combine. I will say he surely isn’t taller than that but I would say he’s certainly not less than 6’6 and likely somewhere in between the two marks. 6’6-6’6.25 is possible for him. 6’6” flat is as well
Canson said on 25/Jul/18
Couch scout is no less reliable than the Combine when it comes to “Errors”. Both can make them
