    My son is a former wrestler and current Army Airborne Ranger and veteran of Iraq. We talk about this all the time and he's pretty clear. He and others fight to protect rights those in other countries aren't allowed to exercise. Does he stand during the anthem? Yes. Is he offended if others choose to kneel? No. Why? Because that's a right Americans are privileged to enjoy. Unlike North Korea, Iran, Belarus, and other places, citizens here don't have to stand, sit, kneel, etc., when commanded. That's the beauty of being an American. You want to live somewhere where you're forced to stand, bow, or dance when the great leader enters--or else--plenty of places to go for that. Thank God America is not one of those places and we should all pray it never is.

    A lot of supposedly grown adults (or maybe just antitroll) in this thread seem to have a big problem with personal responsibility and the free market. Scrap Life is a marketing brand. That means it's essential for its athletes to feel comfortable and confident representing it. When Beshada posted his screed, he made his own bed. Good for the young men who are sacrificing money to maintain their personal values. I remember a time when we used to encourage people to have strong, consistent values. I think the bigger issue at play here is that some people in this thread don't think Beshada is wrong and they see the overwhelming rejection of those beliefs and backlash as a rejection of themselves as well. Pure projection. Btw, if you want to complain about the looting in Manhattan, you should blame your boys in blue. They chose to ignore the looters and instead focus on attacking the organized protest that wasn't looting. They did this because a protest against police brutality is far more offensive to them than the looting of businesses. For an explicit demonstration of this attitude look no further than the shameful displays in Buffalo and Philly where a large crowd of cops waited outside the courthouses to cheer on their fellow officers who were leaving their court hearings for brutal assault on unarmed protesters. The absolute contempt for the society and law you're supposed to protect it takes to cheer an officer who brutally assaulted a 75 year old man, unprovoked, is shocking and must see for Americans who don't understand how out of control some of these PDs have grown. I come from a family with a strong law enforcement background, so it pains me to see. When somebody tells you who they are, you should believe them. American police have been telling us who they are for a while now. Time to listen.

    All the white people on here complaining how their opinions are being infringed upon are completely laughable... I in no way condone people rioting, looting and destroying businesses but they are a very very small percentage of the people protesting. How any person can say this is dumb or a waste of time is on the wrong side of history. These protests are larger than the civil rights movements in the 60s and taking place all over the world. Police brutality is not a partisan issue and it is simply a fact that blacks are targeted much more often than whites. Why is it a problem to want to change that? Blacks have the lowest average income of any race in the US. They are the most incarcerated of any race in a country that incarcerates 5 times as many people as the next closest country. There has been a decentralized oppression that has fed itself for years. If you agree with the constitution or any religious teachings that everyone is created equal, why would you be anything but supportive of people wanting to be treated fairly and equally under the law? Just because the media whether it be Fox News or CNN sensationalize everything And it wears on you, doesn’t mean the protests are ‘bad’ or not warranted. People on here whining about how their disturbing opinions are not being respected really need to get a clue. Would your opinion have been blacks should not have been land owners? That women should never have had the right to vote? Movements like this are what produce progress. If you are against that progress and equality of every human on the planet, then you better believe people are going to come after you because you would be the kind of person standing in front of positive progress. People need to get over themselves, no one is infringing on your opinion. Go shout from the rooftops how you don’t want equality, just be ready for the consequences.

    I've never heard a good answer to this question. To people who say: "To our military, to our veterans! To those who died for our country!" I'd say the following: Those people died supporting and defending the Constitution of the United States, as per their oath. If Colin Kaepernick and others think that the Constitutionally guaranteed rights of American citizens (that Americans fought and died for, mind you) are not being upheld, perhaps we need to make sure that Americans didn't die fighting for the rights of some, and not others. Maybe those football players have a point.

    The first amendment exists to prevent the government from jailing people who speak out. It is not a free pass to say whatever you want with impunity and no risk of personal or professional ramifications. He exercised his right to expressed his opinion, and now he is facing the consequences, none of which are legal in nature.

    I think a lot of conservatives want the NFL to suffer because of the Brees thing because it validates their world view that they are the true oppressed class of people in this country. In reality, the whole thing is already over. Drew came out and made a strong statement, acknowledging that he was wrong and how he could do better. His peers have accepted that apology. The only people I see who are still talking about it are the people who were outraged that he had to apologize in the first place. Nobody whines for safe spaces more than conservatives in this country. Fox News had a whole segment today about how a donut shop in Rhode Island is no longer offering police discounts. These poor cops now have to pay the same price as everybody else for their fried dough. In other words, Rhode Island has fallen to Antifa.

    Dude, 57 cops in buffalo resigned from their positions in solidarity with 2 officers who assaulted a 75 year old man then unflinchingly walked by his body as he laid on the ground with blood pouring from his ear. There's degrees to this. Yeah, derek chauvin is a monster, and most cops aren't THAT bad in comparison. But the problem is that cops protect other cops, even the derek chauvin's of the world. The "1% bad cops" argument is bull****. Just because a cop doesn't commit an act directly, doesn't mean he's not complicit. They all have the opportunity to weed out the bad apples, and time and time again they choose to prioritize the livelihood of their "brothers in blue" over the safety of the citizens they're sworn to protect.

    Almost all of Manhattan is absolutely ravaged? Worse than 9/11? Innocent death toll must be at least 3,000 then. I can’t believe the corrupt media has kept all this from us, and also prevented every single person in NYC from posting about it on social media.

    At the end of the day, if majority of people don't learn how to listen for the sake of listening instead of trying to debate or personally attack every time there is a different thought or opinion....it's never going to get better. Goes for all sides. And that has absolutely nothing to do with Trump, or CNN, or Fox, or left or right. It is strictly a personal decision for each and every person. Now days, people don't want to hear your opinion, the only thing acceptable is their opinion coming out of your mouth.

    Anyway so when the twitter mob is done tearing scraplife to pieces ( a small wrestling only business) and demanding everyone leave the company and they will eventually have to close down there factory and lay off a bunch of low to middle wage people which will undoubtedly include plenty of black and Hispanic workers, in the middle of pandemic with millions already out of work. Will the social justice warriors like Gross, Downey, James green and Nomad to name a few , will they start a fund for these everyday people that are going to lose a job bc of there “wokeness” ...so by getting mad at a drunk white guys Facebook post they will probably indirectly cost dozens of people ,including some black people there lively hoods all in the name of social justice and black lives matter. and what did they accomplish out of all this? Nothing, nothing at all except probably hurting innocent people. Dividing wrestling fans and I personally know 2 brothers who dropped Flo after they saw nomad garbage virtue singling post...the man is like 32 pledging to combat and fight racism, like what the hell have you been doing the last 30 years then? Non political people see right through the BS but god forbid try to tell them this because they ll just block you or pat Downey will incoherently threaten to beat you up .... What a time to be alive

    Interview with Hassan Yazdani

    The following is my attempt at translating a recent interview with Hassan Yazdani The original is posted here, and you can use google translate. Google tranwlate might end up being more coherent than my translation :) https://www.khabarvarzeshi.com/fa/news/261449/یزدانی-می‌خواهم-تا-المپیک-2024-کشتی-بگیرم Yazdani : " I want to keep on wrestling until the 2024 Olympics" When asked what prompoted him to get into wrestling, Hassan Yazdani responded "I started wrestling since I was 12. In my country and city, this is a very popular sport. I also became interested in wrestling and joined a club and started wrestling as a career" When asked about his role model, he said " You cannot emphasis just one person. I watch everyone wrestle and use what I see in my training. I try to learn good techniques from all domestic and global champions. But from a sportmanship point of view, Takhti is my role model" Regarding his injury: " I have been practicing for two months. I have been conditioning my knee and have been wrestling on the mat for month know and fortunately everything looks good. The Olympic Champion comment on his weight change; "My plans get adjusted based on my weight. Throughout the years, as I got heavier, I myself decide what weight class to compete in. With the new rules, cutting significnat weight is diffuclt and you are forced to compete in higher weights. My natural weight is 89 kg, and I think wereslting at 86 is ideal for me. If I gain weight, then I will wrestle in higher wegihts too, and I would like to expereince that, but at the moment my weight does not allow that and I think 86 Kg is good for me In regards to 2015 world championship and losing to Gazimagomedov, he said: " In competition, there are lessons learned in every defea. Of course, in every competition I work on my weaknesses and try to do better. 2015 was my first Senior competitoin, and and I handed the win to Magomedov. I made mistakes and I tried to work on them in camps so that I would have the best performance in the Olympics, and fortunately that happened and I was able to win the best medal for my country" Regarding the Rio Olympics he said "I was positive the whole time and never considered losing. There were incidents with my opponents injurty that could have made things difficut (I assume he is referring to the constant stoppages) but god and my coaches helpmed keep my cool and stay focused and the match was decided in the last seconds While commenting on his opponent Taylor and wishing him good health he emphasized: " Every athletes tries to represent their countries tradition and culture.. I respect all my opponentsand I wish every single one of them good health and success wether they are direct opponents such as Taylor or others. I want my opponents to be at their best so we can have a good compeitions and the so that the fans can enjoy watching it. I try to conduct sportsmanship and good conduct and everything that is part of our wrestling tradition. Regarding his two losses to Taylor and his plans for Tokyo he said: " I try not to amke the mistaks that I made in the past matches,. these mistake may be technical or psychological, . I try to reduce them, and use a different approach in competition, and with more focus think about each opponent and execute what I plan. Regarding the labels that are being given to him in Iran, he said : I hope I deserve such labels. I will try very hard not to let down my fans. He added: I don't have any hobbies outside of wrestling, I focus just on training and as long as I wrestle, I want to focus on wrestling only. I try to spend my recreational time with my family and perhaps go hiking in the woods and mountains with them Regarding retirement he stated " I have not thought about it yet, But sometimes I try to think about the future, and be successful in business, but right now all my thoughts are about wrestling. My father handles business and commerical matters, and does not allow me to defocus, but I think I can do well in business too. When asked what medal he will win in Tokyo, he responded: I hope until I am able to wrestle I win the best olympic and world medals. As long as my body allows me, I will wrestle, and will try to win gold. My plans are through 2024, but it depends on my body allowing it. I would like to wrestle. Regarding his domestic opponents: They are good champions. Kamran Ghasempour and Ahmad Bazri are among the competitors, and perhaps younger opponents that we don't know will show up, but currently its Ghassempour and Bazri

    It was held in Toledo, Ohio and was the first World Cup held in the United States. There was to be 16 more World Cups held in Toledo, largely due to the influence of Joe Scalzo and Dick Torio who both were from Toledo. Scalzo, former U. of Toledo Wrestling Coach, a lawyer, VP of FILA at one time, also brought 2 World Championships to Toledo....1962 and 1966. Torio, who owned a health club in Toledo, was a 3 time All-American, wrestling for UT, was involved with 5 Olympic games, 4 as an official, and 1 as a coach. Both of these guys have been inducted into several wrestling Hall of Fames. That first World Cup had a very good team, including Jimmy Carr, Lloyd Keaser, Stan Dziedzic, John and Ben Peterson and maybe a couple other great ones. The single greatest thing I remember during the competition, was Jimmy Carr suplaying the Russian 4 or 5 times in a row, and the Russian coach, Yuri Shakmiradov getting all but one of them taken away during a time out. (no video review back then of course). Another memory I have was up in a press box "filming" from up high in the old Fieldhouse, and Neil Turner of Athletes in Action was sitting next to me during the gift exchange. He told me to watch when Ben and John Peterson (AIA) exchanged there gifts. All the other Soviets opened up there gifts right there....maybe t-shirts/jeans.......but the 2 Soviets with the Peterson's didn't open theirs, as there were Bibles wrapped in the t-shirts. Another great memory was that I was able to go the World Cup training camp.....actually went home and got my movie projector so Gable could show his Munich Gold medal match with Ruslan Ashruliev to the guys in the training camp. During the camp, I watched Gable work out with some really good guys, some who outweighed him and it didn't matter...he dominated. He didn't compete in this meet ....he was coaching with Bill Wieck and Jim Peckham. Gable was to wrestle one more match soon after this competition in Madison Square Garden against the Russians, and then retire, although he did try a comeback a couple years later. Gable beat the 149.5 pounder, Pavel Pinigin in the Garden. Pinigin, who was a Junior World Champion, actually scored a takedown, and then Gable beat him pretty good. Lloyd Keaser beat Pinigin in the World Cup. This meet was the beginning of a great tradition. Other teams that wrestled over the years in the World Cup included Russia, Cuba, Iran, Canada, Japan (As a side note, I attended one session of the 1966 World Championships in Toledo, but was young enough that I couldn't appreciate it yet. Also, it was Greco-Roman which was held the same week as the Freestyle)

    On the contrary, I'm not an alarmist. I know exactly what it means being a retired cop and I think it's funny as hell. And when we say he would have been pulled off the mic by the next match we are being a little facetious. I guess if I'm being completely honest with no humor involved I'm sure in today's climate they probably would have spoken to him after it was over. I, like you, think way too many people take themselves way too serious in this day and age.

    You hire someone who spreads this divisive vitriol, especially in these chaotic times, this is what can happen. Can the company survive? Have they earned enough trust that people are comfortable with their response? I guess we'll see. Lesson: be damn sure who you hire (recruit, publicly support etc.) because your choices have consequences. That's capitalism. That's American tradition. Everyone move on.

    Cool of you to pick every Fox News headline and associate it with yourself... You still can’t help yourself but focus on what a small percentage of bad actors are doing compared to how many people are actually in the streets protesting and lumping everyone else into the same category. Since David Duke is a trump supporter should I classify all republicans as part of the KKK? That would be utterly absurd and is exactly what you’re doing with Black Lives Matter which I never even brought up. Saying the protest in NY is worse than 9/11 should make you ashamed of yourself. Most people marching in the streets are not ‘in an organization’ If your friend truly had his head beat in with a brick, I’m sorry for that. But to diminish the equal rights, treatment and end to systematic oppression of blacks because of whatever experience you see when you look out your window is incredibly myopic. You only speak in the hyperbolic and can’t be taken seriously at all, just like everyone, you’re entitled to your own opinion, as am I but I wouldn’t be surprised if Fox News calls you to make a guest appearance in Tucker Carlson. And if your great granddaddy was in the civil war, I’d expect a lot more understanding that when he fought, blacks were F’ing Slaves! It’s not like they chose to come to the US. They didn’t exactly get the same start your granddaddy did legs or no legs.

    I live in New York City where my friend had his head smashed in with bricks, where my nypd friend now needs multiple surgeries because he got jumped by 6 “peaceful protesters” almost all of manhatten is absolutely ravaged, they are throwing Molotov cocktails are cops on a nightly basis, the mayors daughter is hitting cops with rocks... 30 year veterans saying it’s worse then 9/11, over 20 cops up and quit for what’s happening to them and how they have no support from the top...that’s the scene from the ground, so until you look out a window and you see what looks like the purge outside then you can lecture me.... Your a clown my “Great great grand daddy” fought for the union and lost both his legs .... my best friend was undercover with antifa for years, you can repeat garbage talking points all you want but you clearly have no actual insight into this past was msnbc tells you. for the record my issue with this hasn’t nothing to do with race but what narrow minded people like yourself don’t realize is that black lives matter as an organization is a joke and u can literally go to there main page and see what the goals of these protests are, ( it’s not peace and love, it’s mayhem and destruction) Black lives obviously matter just as much as anyone else but this BLM organization is corrupt as they come, the people not affiliated with them, that are coming out and marching are literally the best part of America, normal people marching against what they see as injustices but the problem is those voices won’t be heard because of the destruction by others.

    I’m sorry do you live in a city or are you law enforcement because if not then I doubt you have any clue because it’s not a very very small percentage it’s literally half the people at these events, and to compare this to civil rights is a joke and a slap in the face to the people that fought for it, those people were marching for literal equal rights, these people are marching to defund or abolish police, half these protesters are paid, or just anarchists who don’t want to combat racism they just want to see America burn, seriously google black lives matter ideology and goals and tell me this is about equal rights or racism , your so woke until these mobs burn down your house or beat you and your wife in the street I live in a city and have friends that are in the police force, in Buffalo, NY no less which has been all over the news. I have been in constant communication with them and I have gotten updates from them directly. You literally lost all credibility by saying half the people protesting are rioting, if that were the case, it would be all out war on the streets. To say half the people are getting paid is such a nut job conspiracy to diminish what is going on it also significantly reduces your credibility. You must live on a farm and be terrified of people that are different from you. You must live in constant fear. I feel bad for people like you that have been so brainwashed about all this that all you can do is say half the people are rioting or looting. Your post is a complete joke, was your granddaddy a confederate soldier? Why harbor so much resentment and hate? Rioting and looting is wrong and it IS a small percentage of people and you are choosing to focus on the outliers than the broader issue at hand.

    Also lol at the statement, the top wants you to believe "the only people ever killed by police officers are black". Dude black people are literally at the bottom of the American pyramid due to systematic racism. They came here as slaves! And were considered 3/5th of a f*cking person!! BLM is simply just saying, I matter as a person because historically I haven't. The top!? I think we will know when blacks simply just reach equality because they'll be the first ones to say it.

    People are missing a larger point on this - since when are people not entitled to express an opinion in this country? Now Drew Blees can't express his opinion on the kneeling during the national anthem without being castigated as a racist? This guy from Scraplife has a right to express his opinion regardless if it is popular or not. There is nothing remotely racist in that guy's post. If we are not free to criticize or disagree with a political party (Democrats) or a very political group pushing an agenda (like BLM) we are in big trouble in this country. If you think I am out of line check out the Van Jones interview with some singer named Andra Day - according to her "you can't control the the thoughts of the people being oppressed. You have to control the thoughts of the oppressor - whether they're aware of it or not" end quote - So the message if you buy into the concepts of "systemic racism" "institutional racism" and "white privilege" is that we can be racist even if we don't realize it. That is very convenient. The goal posts have been magically moved in the midst of the game and its still happening. I believe that I like many Americans are very committed to reaching what the original goal was as it was eloquently described in MLK's I have a dream speech. Personally I think this country is a hell of a lot closer to being at that original goal than people (especially liberal Democrats) give it credit for. Well I have probably said more than I should but not allowing people to have an opinion should bother all Americans.

    IF they both do - in fact - sign with ASU then it's interesting (to me at least) to look ahead to what the ASU lineup might be for the 2022 season: 125 lbs - Brandon Courtney - RS Senior for 2022 season - Tristan Mascarenas - RS Freshman - Richard Figueroa - True Freshman - Carter Dibert - True Freshman 133 lbs - Michael McGee - RS Senior for 2022 - Nick Raimo - RS Sophomore - Cleveland Belton - RS Sophomore - Lou Fincher - RS Freshman 141 lbs - Julian Chlebove - RS Sophomore - Josiah Kline - RS Senior - Navonte Demison - RS Senior 149 lbs - Jesse Vasquez - RS Freshman OR True Sophomore - Ricky Roberto - RS Freshman 157 lbs - Jacori Teemer - RS Junior - Hunter Balk - RS Sophomore 165 lbs - Cael Valencia - True Freshman - Max Wilner - True Freshman 174 lbs - Trey Munoz - RS Sophomore - Josh Nummer - RS Sophomore 184 lbs - Cade Belshay - RS Senior - Austin Clayton - RS Senior - Zane Coleman - RS Sophomore 197 lbs - Kordell Norfleet - RS Senior - Chad Porter - RS Senior - Jacob Good - RS Sophomore 285 lbs - Cohlton Schultz - RS Sophomore - David Palosika - RS Freshman or True Sophomore

    Whatever happened to Jim Gibbons

    Not a big baseball fan, but what else was he supposed to say??? I didn't think it was that bad, he didn't get carried away. LOL....you/it just reminded me of a story I had forgotten....in 4th grade, we were playing the other 4th grade class, and I dropped a fly ball in the outfield, and my teacher, Miss Harget, sent me back to the room....probably traumatized at the time, but I got a better glove, played a lot of catch and got better, ironically my glove was an Al Kaline glove (he just passed). Ended up teaching physical education for 40 years....got fairly good at a lot of sports.

    I thought this was the question but wasn’t sure. I like your picks and will steal a couple. I’d go: 125 - Lee/Vito 133 - RBY/Alvarez 141 - Yianni/Lee 149 - Eierman/O’Connor 157 - Hidlay/Coleman 165 - Marinelli/Lewis 174 - Kemerer/Starocci 184 - Brooks/Assad 197 - Adams/Darmstadt 285 - Steveson/Gas Tank Gary
