    Pat Mineo's tweet about M*

    Maybe it was kept so quiet because MStar didn't want his health issue blasted across the country? Terrible move on Mineo's part.

    You seem conflicted to me. On the one hand you are happy and proud of the freedoms that the US system offers its citizen (and rightly so), on the other hand you seem very upset at people who take advantage of such freedoms by protesting.

    I just listened to a dad coach who fancies himself a freestyle guy.. say Bekzod looked like a folkstyle guy trying to wrestle freestyle in the first few seconds before any exchange.., and didn’t know he was a multi time senior medalist. God I hate youth wrestling culture

    If you all think this really has anything to do with little ole Willie, you are smoking something good. This is a strategy being employed by Flo bigwigs Paul Hurdlow and Mark Floreani to try and hamstring Martin Floreani and his fledgling company, Rokfin. In the last hearing at the very beginning, Karen tried to pull Martin into the contempt part, and the judge wasn't having any of it because he personally isn't a party to the suit. (side note, he is personally party to a suit brought by Flo against him in Delaware the same week Flo filed against Willie and Rokfin in Austin) Hurdlow's strategy is to try and strangle Rokfin in the cradle before Martin can establish it enough in the industry to empower content owners to profit off their own events instead of having to sell out to Flo for nothing or very little in return for access to Flo's broadcast platform. Witness, Carl and his event. Flo's model is insidious. They provide the content owners (Beast of the East, Ironman, etc.) an outlet to let their fans see events, but since they are virtually the only game in town (sorry Track) they pay the content owners very little to nothing for the content rights. What if those content owners could directly take their events to the public through a platform like Rokfin and profit from it themselves? That leaves Flo as merely a production company, and an expensive one at that when the opportunity cost is factored in. Flo absolutely cannot sit idly by while Rokfin creates a platform that gives content owners an option to produce their own events, and have the profits go to the content owners rather than a faceless VC group. So, Flo is trying to establish that Willie violated his non-compete and -- here's the critical component of this -- that Rokfin encouraged and assisted Willie in doing so. That way, Flo can get some relief against Rokfin, although probably only a monetary award (if they can prove damages).

    this is the question nobody can answer perfectly. we never had an accurate poll or something like that. people can only speak based on their own experience. for example everybody in my family and in both my parents family dislike the regime but that doesn't mean everybody in the country hates them as well ! they have their own supporters . I can't give a percentage , nobody can but it's surely less than 50%. probably much less. but I can say they are much more unpopular in big cities. people are more religious in smaller places and therefore the regime have more supporters in those places. most of Iranian top wrestlers come from small villages so it makes sense if the majority of them at least don't hate the regime. and I have to say being religious is not always equal to supporting the regime. they may support some elements of the regime but not necessarily the whole system. but one thing is for sure that people in Iran are getting less and less religious . I mean comparing to 20 years ago. and to be honest I don't think "religious fundamentalists" exist in Iran, you NEVER hear an Iranian do a suicidal attack anywhere. I believe even those in power are not religious themselves, (at least not as much as they claim) they just use it as a weapon to stay in power.

    I thought they did a good job. Taylor obviously knows his stuff and Byers is way more professional than anything Flo offers. He just sounds like a pro. I thought Hannah Mears did a nice job with her interviews as well. That said are there replays available. I saw you asked earlier but wasn’t sure I saw JBryant commented on there that they would be but where do you even look? The Rokfin site is very difficult to navigate. You search for NLWC and it just takes you to last nights event link. If I search for Jordan Burroughs it will take me to his content but NLWC does not. Also like I said before hopefully Rokfin can force Flo to up their quality but it doesn’t help my wallet having to now pay for both.

    This is hilarious. Doubts about future potential, “bad loss”, progression slowing, because a college guy who hadn’t yet made a world team lost a criteria to a world and Olympic champ. Good stuff.

    Well in 2019 he took silver at Euros with a 8-2 win over Chakaev. He’s only 29 with an Olympic silver and gold already under his belt. I don’t care what weight it was, that speaks volumes. It was not a bad loss for Yianni who has never even made a senior world team.

    Durso and Kerkvliet made it look very easy. Wood Nevills was a great match. Retherford gritty as always. Nolf with a nasty winn dixie. McFadden was game but Nolf impressive as always with his relentless pace. The NLWC is so freaking good these days. With the additions of Gilman, Snyder and Abdurakmanov it’s ridiculous.

    If you call that a bad loss you don’t realize how good Khinchegashvili is. Yianni was right there and could obviously win if they met again. Hats off to both for putting it on the line.

    Not a bad loss given it was against Kinch, even if he is considerably smaller and out of shape. However, I think Yianni’s phenomenal progression of the past three years has stalled out quite a bit and not just due to COVID.

    Was that a bad loss for Yanni?

    Yianni lost 4-4 on criteria. Kinch exposed Yianni's back in a scramble for his first 2pts then took him down for another 2. I don't think it was a bad loss at all considering it was just exhibition plus the fact that Kinch is an Olympic and World champ, which is another nice gauge and feel for Yianni. Kinch looked pretty slick and still very quick and I'm not sure if he was actually in peak form. Not sure how close or far Yianni was from his peak but after the match he admitted that he was a little rusty from not competing in a while (paraphrasing).

    FLO 8-man tourney...

    They were hysterical on FRL talking about seeding this 8 man bracket. So funny - right as CP is the grown-up in the room and states that they themselves should seed the bracket to set up the most compelling matches, Dake texts Askren all in agreement for the lottery seed. It was great. :D Could probably make a whole other show of the wrestlers choosing their seed or another wrestler's landmine seed with the lottery pick. (I know, sideshow post. Just desperate for live wrestling again!)

    Not hyper cynical? i did get a chuckle out of that... Nickal has already proven he does not want anything to do with his own weight class... and he’s proven he won’t wrestle just anyone outside of his weight class... so... he is either that big time or that small time...

    Lee is actually really good upper body. He has a lot of cool judo throws that come from his parents influence. He talked about it in an interview a while back. Rayvon Foley basically tried this at Big Tens their freshman year. Lee hit a sweet double overhook throw with an inside leg reap and dropped him on his head.

    The Big 10 conference! Soon as some of these athletes end up in hospitals with permanent damage to their lungs/hearts because the Big 10 put them at risk (for money!) the lawsuits will start rolling in. In fact I wouldn't be surprised to see a class action lawsuit after everything shakes down and this debacle fully plays out.

    I think a lot of you guys are selling Ke-shawn short due to his injury last year and wrestling up at 157 the year before. The Ke-shawn that wrestled at 141/149 was a solid AA contender who had numerous wins over All Americans and took down Zane twice in the dual meet. My understanding last year is he was going to challenge Sasso at 149 because he had outgrown 141. If he is able to recover from his injury I have to believe he could be solid option for someone at 149. If that means the Bucks slide Sasso up to 157 this makes room for Hayes. While I like Keshawn, I don't see this happening but would love to see him get a shot else where and finally achieve the elusive AA. Excellent wrestler and a class act all around.

    Again, nothing for a hundred years before, nothing in twenty years since. They lost massive amounts for a long time before and some after. A little less after maybe. Millions of weigh-ins. No deaths. It's not all about weight cutting by itself. And I didn't say it was just the creatine.
  41. 2 points
    I have nothing definitive but I think creatine was designed more for football use to gain weight. I also think there might have been some other additives in the earlier versions or possibly the kids might have been taking dietary supplements that could have caused further problems. One is trying to increase and the other decrease. This added to the stupid weighin rules of the time wasn't a good mix. No deaths for a hundred or so years before and none for 20-some after. 3 within a few months? Something weird going on that year.

    Regardless of what has happened, I think that we Americans can agree that the spirit that is Iranian wrestling is inspiring if you have ever seen a world competition. They are incredible fans and they are our brothers, regardless of leadership. I'm not the most kumbaya guy on the planet, but the Iranians understand the USA better than anyone else in the Middle East. I would love to go there and talk wrestling with the greatest fans on the planet. And always remember that fandom ensures the future of the sport.

    One major difference between those 3x champs: all but one of them redshirted their true freshman season. Zain wrestles as a true freshman before redshirting his true sophomore year. If Zain had redshirted his true freshman year there’s little doubt in my mind he would’ve been a 4 timer. Houdashelt beat Habat in the 149 finals during Zain’s redshirt season his true sophomore year. In fact I think there’s a better than 50/50 chance he would’ve gone undefeated in his career. This assumes he would’ve gone 149 as a redshirt freshman, I wouldn’t say the same if he would’ve gone 141 in 2015...a bracket Stieber absolutely shredded in his final folk tourney.

    You do realize the once you get to a high level, like say a level where you’re beating world silvers, going to criteria with Olympic champs, winning world ranking series events....your rate of progression isn’t going to look as “fast” as as when you were 16, because the things you are focusing on for your progression at that point are much different. You do understand that right??
