    I don't think its revisionism at all.  It's not like Taylor just grew a few inches between seasons.  After another unsuccessful attempt at making the team at 74, he specifically went on a weight gaining program to move up to 86.  It was a specific, committed, intent....to move up from 74.

    If you watched Taylor back at 74 KG you could tell he was pulling a lot of weight and was not going to be be to hold that weight for long.  JMO

    I'm not angry...? And sure, if fans want to believe it's not feasible then that's fine but extremely naive. Behind closed doors most would admit what I said is true even if they won't say it out loud.

    "Behind closed doors most would admit what I said is true even if they won't say it out loud." Pure speculation and opinion on your part.

  3. Being a great athlete does not translate into being a great wrestler.  I have talked to many very good athletes that tried wrestling and they admitted that it was the hardest sport they ever did and did like it all.  I know that many of the above mentioned were no doubt tough but being wrestling tough is a special thing.

  4. I guess I am not sure what you mean by poor sport I have watched most of his matches at US Nationals the  last few years and I have not seen him do anything that I would call poor sportsmanship.  After last US Nationals when he won he stopped and talked for about 20 minutes out side the arena he was nothing but smiles and well spoken.  We even aske about his little celebration dance that he did he just laughed said he was caught up in the moment as it was his first SR level National championship.  I do read some of the stuff that he says on here but in my only face to face meeting he was a good guy.  JMO

    You guys ever consider that Flo declined DT's proposed format to save face for Downey?  I don't think it would be a good look to have DT beat him by some absurd score and then PD3 goes MMA on him.  

    I have never seen Downey be a poor sport when losing on the mat.
