    The all about me thread

    Last night my girl, who I’ve lived with for about two years, threw a party for my 45th bday. When it game time to open presents....boy did I put a good one on everyone there. Opening what was supposed to be a gift from my oldest daughter, I instead pulled out the diamond, shocked the hell out of everybody, and got down on my knee. I called this the all about my post, but it’s really all about her. I am super excited that she will soon be my wife. Merry Christmas to everyone! We have some squabbles around here but that’s what family does. Wish you all the happiest of holidays. Mine has already been beyond blessed.

    Since Christmas is coming up I thought I would lighten it up a little and put this out there. There are numerous posters who I think are more knowledgeable than me, that would be almost all of you, but here are a few who I think are not only the most knowledgeable but objective as well: wrestlingnerd LJB VakAttak SteamboatCharlie Housebye By the way, I know this wasn't part of the title, but after last weekend I can honestly say that any of you who think TBarr is the biggest homer or the most unobjective are sorely mistaken. He is not even in the top 10. I give him a hard time every once in a while but at least he will admit he's a homer for Penn State and, in my opinion, very knowledgeable. Some of my Cornell fan brothers literally need a reality check and to lighten up as do some of the Hawkeye fans. Some of these guys make me look knowledgeable and to hear them talk you would think every time one of their wrestlers lost it was because of bad officiating or some other thing out of their control. Anyway just something to have fun with and I hope everybody has a Merry Christmas. I must admit personally that having my son land at home today from college might be the best Christmas present I've ever received.

    57: Can Fix/Gilman/Lee beat Uguev, Atli, and the 61kgers coming down? I think Fix and Lee have the best chance because they score in transition and in bunches. Upshot is probably Bronze here, but both are game competitors. Gimme Lee who seems slightly stronger and more physical. 5th 65: I'm a U.S. cynic here, sorry. This weight class is comically deep and I don't really see a path to the podium when all these freaks are peaking for the Games. Upside, with an otherworldly performance, is Bronze. JO has looked phenomenal, and I think he is definitely a better rep than Zain, but he hasn't seen anyone on Rashidov/Otoguro/Aliev/Punia/Musukaev/etc. level. Zain just does not have the dynamism or offensive heat to mess with these guys, though. Will know more after Pan Am Quals. DNP 74: Can Dake or Burroughs beat Sidakov and Chamizo is the same tournament? Absolutely, and i think they both crush any of the 70kg guys who come up. I am throwing Burroughs on my 2020 dream team simply because he is the best team leader still, and I think the younger guys get a small performance bump from him being there. Medal depends on draw. 86: David Taylor can obviously beat Hassan, and I don't think anyone else here can beat him. Gold/Silver 97: I am pretty confident that Sadulaev never loses to Snyder again, and I think there are at least a couple other guys here who can beat Kyle before the finals. J'den Cox is the best all-around wrestler in the U.S.A the past couple years, and I think he presents a bunch of problems which those guys have never had to deal with before. Bulk him up and send him for the Gold or Silver. 125: Gwiz can nab a Bronze. We are just going to have wait until Geno and Akgul retire and then Gable can try to win it.

    Cassar injured

    Just pulled it up. I thought that his delivery and language were at best inartful but I would be inclined to give him the benefit of the doubt that he wasn't trying to make light of Cassar's misfortune. He prefaced what he said by complimenting Cassar and he was smiling throughout the interview because he was just off the mat and pleased that his recent training adjustments paying off so I didn't read what he did as a true laugh. I could see it seeming offensive but I think he probably awkwardly stumbled on the reference to Cassar rather than had any intention of treating the injury as funny.

    My understanding is that they're paying Askren in Pyles Bucks. These can very easily be converted into Spey Dubloons which can be traded in for Toys R Us coupons, which, while for a defunct company, are actually the preferred currency of the Dark Web, and then turned into Ethereum. From there, it's just a hop, skip, and a jump to cash. Easy peasy!

    I was impressed with Arajua. Really improved. Took both Suriano and Lee down. Hopefully he makes trials. Lee just special. Expect him to beat Tomasello and run table in Happy Valley. Frank C

    Arujao seems to have questionable defense (against the best guys). I am sure he is a bit underpowered too. He clearly has the offense to take down anyone. I’m super excited for him. I think he would’ve won more age level medals with more opportunities. It’s rare that I say that too. I tend to underestimate how we will do at age level tournaments. I was burned when Hall lost to Nagy. It confused the **** out of me. I didn’t watch nearly as much freestyle then and just kind of assumed Mark would kill Nagy, who’s most impressive achievement was qualifying for NCAAs up to that point. random tangent. Not deleting it. Got excited.

    I've enjoyed just about everyone's post at one time or another in this forum. It's been my, 'goto' forum for a long time. The posters range from comical to pompous and from snarky to academic. The posters mentioned seem to be the, 'leaders of the pack.' I read for years before I ever joined and posted. I'm grateful this forum is here. Cheers to you all. Peace.

    I need to publicly apologize for some comments I made this weekend. I was out of line and took the ribbing much too far. Merry Christmas to you and yours.

    I joined this board about a year ago and one of the first replies I got was a kind, constructive comment regarding ACC wrestling from @Housebuye. He’s always come across as a level headed, objective poster and I always think he provides quality insights. There’s a lot of good posters here though and a lot of people I really enjoy reading their opinions. Merry Christmas and happy holidays to everyone here!

    I agree. He's an old school "dancing bear" style heavy..which these days loses more often than not to the new breed athletic heavies in the mold of Snyder, Cassar, Steveson, heck even Kasper

    I think Gable is just better now. And has more of a chance on the world stage. I think Lee is getting the Gross treatment from the Ferrel. He crunched a bunch of guys we dont expect to make the team. Good for him. I think most of us had him in that top 3 (Fix/Gillman) going in.... and nothing has changed. He could be our rep, but I'll go Fix. Agree on JO, Cox, Snyder.... I think Dake hype continues to be overblown in the wake of him dominating. A terrible weight. I dont think he is terrible but had he not been able to go and Ringer/Zahid was the rep these past few years. We wouldve had similar results. (Outside of the Gadzi crushing) .... anyways JBs liability also overblown. We cant revel in his clutch gene when he wins in the last second then all of a sudden see it as a liability because the end result isnt a world title. Sidakov has gotten through Russia then JB/Chamizo, 2 world championships in a row... maybe hes just a murderer.... I think as always itll be close, but I think as always JB come out the rep

    Flo announcers need to improve

    Ehh... did you not watch any other wrestling throughout the weekend? They did quite well. Nomad especially. The finals was a bit different atmosphere to it, as they had also announced that Askren was joining FRL. Kind of Disney playground effect. They were happy, and being an avid FRL listener, I was right there with them. Apologies if it sucked for you. It was awesome for me, and being as I watched wrestling the entire weekend, I know that they did well on the whole. They get better damn near every large tournament like this.

    How Did Gable Look?

    Glad hes back, great wrestler, great for the heavyweight division....but man I am not on team Gable. Some of the stuff he does on the match just seems so unecessary. We get it you're way better than 99% of your opponents, no need to be a dbag about it. Meh, I think I'm just turning into a grumpy old man but boy does that stuff rub me the wrong way.

    Best comment of this thread. This is really about Flo sending a message that you can’t just bail and start competing with impunity. Will Flo get some large payout? No. Will Flo even win the lawsuit? Who knows, but probably not. Will Willie then “win”? No, lawsuits are unpleasant to deal with and require significant legal expense. Will those expenses be covered by Flo if Flo loses? Almost surely not, since the contract was clearer violated and it’s Texas, not California, so there is a very reasonable basis for the lawsuit. Will others think twice about immediately violating a contract, enforceable or not, that they signed with Flo going forward? No question, and that’s what this is about.
