  1. It wasn't all one motion for Nolf/Mcfadden, slight stall while exposed. I am unsure whether red should be awarded points. Mcfadden created the position where Nolf exposed and Nolf stalled slightly in his counter. I certainly wouldn't throw a brick on this situation, would you?
  2. Slightly different positions than the match in question. In FS, the ASU match definitely results in points for Shields.
  3. Observation 1 is that Fretwell didn't expose when he executed the move. Nolf completely exposed well before he rotated hips. Observation 2 is that Nolf grabbed the wrong toe to execute this move, which is exactly what Fretwell says is the typical reaction in that position. Observation 3 is that the way Nolf executed this move is a mistake in FS because he can't reliably predict how the officials will react. Observation 4 is that the move is entertaining (even if not effective) and probably fun as hell for Nolf.
  4. Huh? I clearly demarcated my sarcasm with a smile. Back to the topic at hand. This was scored 2 & 2? If you were Carl for a day would you throw a brick on that? I wouldn't.
  5. You'll have to ask them what it was like back in the day! We used to kick each other in the testicles 5 times before bed to get toughened up. I bet they don't balls enough to do that anymore.
  6. Not really. I have seen Nolf do weird stuff like that and end up in a crucifix. Almost every foreign ref is going to say he put Nolf in that drape position (like millions of other times) and they are going to award those points to red. Maybe 2-2. It took a ref over a minute to call a spladle pin for Simmons a few years back simply because he didn't know what he was looking at. I felt bad for his opponent.
  7. It is a weird situation. My initial reaction was 2red, but I reconsidered.
  8. Yeah. I can't recall the last elderly ref in a high level FS match. Lots of mat officials though. Most of the older ones remember what real wrestling was like :) The guy that red carded Carl is great. As is Babi from The Stoner State.
  9. That will work out sweet in VA. Two seasons!
  10. Anecdotely, It seems like the higher levels FS of refs are young. Not so much with the officials. Most of the other levels are older.
  11. Cejudo almost fit the criteria. Beat Henson, a former champion, in 2007 to make a world team. Then be beat Abas, a former silver medalist, to become an Olympian.
  12. People are being too hard on PM. M* is newsworthy, ergo.......
  13. So, KS must be doing OK in the room
  14. Neither one of them matches up well with Burroughs. How do you think he'll match up with IMar in FS? Imar has clearly put some distance between himself and Nolf.
  15. Is the Iranian regime popular in areas outside of major cities? How about in the cities? I feel like we only talk about dissatisfaction with the government there. Surely many people, particularly religious fundamentalists, are very happy with it.
  16. I heard this morning they will resume 10/24
  17. How long is IMar laid up?
  18. Interesting trivia topic - IIRC and post college, only one American has defeated JB in a match that was ultimately meaningful, e.g. Not part of series that was fruitless for his opponent. Who is it?
  19. Trump Doral in Miami is a magnificent property. S32 should give Eric or DJ a shout.
  20. Agreed. Everybody knows the reason Askren lost is because of the bum hip. He got that fixed, so lets line 'em back up!
  21. Hang on. Rey Misterio is from Tijuana. His nephew Rey Mysterio is from California.
