    Official Striking Wrestler at Fargo

    That is incredibly stupid. Do not put your hands in an aggressive manner on athletes, especially high school kids.
  2. In defense of Pyles, it seems pretty clear that Dake is only staying at 79 this year due to this injury. He literally could not go 74. The injury coming out changed everything. Logic dictates Dake should have been at 74 this year if physically capable.

    LeRoy Smith and Randy Lewis Controversy

    Man, I always assumed Smith got screwed, but that video sure makes it hard to see where Lee Roy got exposure.

    Forum going soft?

    I swear, this has never happened before.
  5. What about putting a limit on when the delay cn be until? It doesn't erase the ****ery, but it limits it. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  6. I perfectly understand your position on both fronts. I agree on your first point about removing the delay option completely and moving Final X back. We just disagree on the purpose of the delay and what should be afforded to the returning medalists under a system where we're giving them any protection. I feel like the bye is enough.

  7. Dake claimed he was too injured to wrestle. Most wrestlers are not 100% at Final X. They didnt request delays. Under the current scenario, we should just let the returning medalist schedule the wrestle off at their leisure and when they feel totally ready. That's what people are asking for. The argument that we're protecting them already, so why shouldn't Dake just be able to do whatever he wants rings false to me,@wrestlingnerd. Their benefit is they get the by and dont have to run the gauntlet of the tournament. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  8. Final X in mid or late July. Either wrestle at it, or good luck next year. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  9. I'm on board with not allowing a delay, I've said that a couple of times. However, it's here. This is abuse of that system to such an extreme level I can't fathom it, and I've been a Dake guy for years. Plus, the reporting has basically been brutal for any defense of Dake. Dake can respond to Flo's reporting at any time, and he has chosen not to. What we've been told is that Dke had a doctor's note saying he couldn't compete until 8/17. Now he's, ya know, competing and he says that he can get a note saying he can compete now. If that's true, the wrestleoff should be moved up, but he won't because of the agreed upon date under the original doctor's note. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  10. The point of delaying is because the medalist is not healthy enough to compete. Not to allow him to delay for conditioning issues or minor injuries. Otherwise everyone can delay the wrestle off because of minor issues. If Dake is healthy enough to compete, that's that. He should be competing for his spot on the World Team as soon as he's healthy. This was designed to give the defending medalist AN advantage, not every possible advantage in the world. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    When does Iowa State overtake the Squawkeyes?

    They won't. The Brand is too strong. They my occasionally beat them in a dual, but sustained improvement past them is unlikely, especially with ISU's weaker conference affiliation. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  12. Logic dictates that the farther out the match is scheduled is based on Dake's request. It has no benefit for Dieringer, and in fact only hurts him. We know they've been pushing to gave the match as soon as possible so they can begin their prep for Worlds if he's the rep. The reporting on the issue all lays this on Dake's doorstep. There is no reason to schedule the match this close to Worlds unless Dake requested or it was mandated it be this late by a medical professional. This is sports. Being healthy on the day of competition is part of it. As previously said, they're not moving worlds for Dake. Moving the wrestle off is already problematic, but also moving it to the exact optimal specifications of one competitor is a Horse of a different color. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  13. I don't know how anybody could really defend this. He has told us that he is unable to wrestle until 8/17 due to an injury, and that's why the wrestleoff had to be pushed. Now he wants to wrestle this weekend? That's patently unfair to Ringer. The phenomenon of getting the wrestleoff pushed is already something I'm not super comfortable with, but this is even worse. Part of sports is being healthy and competing on the day of the competition. They're certainly not moving the World Championships back if Dake is still feeling tender.
  14. This feels....awful. And I say that as a huge Dake fan.
