    I'll exit with a big thank you: every time you open your mouth you prove every point I could make on this topic far more vividly than I ever could.

    This is like trying to play chess with a gerbil. I did not defend my son and have no no need to as your juvenile speculation about him losing a wrestling match to PDIII was straight out of 5th grade; I pointed out what an a-hole you are to even bring him up in the first place in your feeble attempt to defend your pal. My son, quite literally, fights his own battles. Your d!ck comments about him reflect on you alone. Maybe you could try letting PDII and III do the same instead of whining how mean everyone is (diaper at the ready for you, bro, and a cry towel too). Basically, you are not doing PDIII any public relations favors by whimpering over the bruising of your paper thin skin.

    Appreciate it, man. He's a quiet, humble individual, expects nothing in return for his service, but I'll pass along your kind words when I am able to communicate with him again. Again, thank you on his behalf.

    Okay, Mr. Righteous, I'll take it from the top. You brought up my son in your original diatribe; my son is an Airborne Ranger combat vet of Iraq now serving in another not so nice part of the world--taking any shot at him or even bringing him up is, beyond ignorant, cowardly. He has no idea who PDII or PDIII are and could give a f$ck. As for PDII, anyone on this forum for any length of time witnessed his helicopter parent daddy cheerleading/excuse making for everything little junior ever screwed up--he's opened himself up to the responses he gets, so deal with it. You dish it out, you should be able to take it. As for PDIII, I'm not a fan but I don't root against him, just indifferent and immune to the so-far unearned hype. If he wins a world medal, good for him, but the incessant "me against the world" is tiresome, particularly when most of his problems he's brought on himself, not "the haters" or anyone else daddy says pooped in junior's pants (ex-girlfriends, ex-coaches, yada yada). Do something, win some bouts at the Dogu, then talk all you want. And yes, I am a coach and father, and one rule is talk after you've proven something. If PDII medals (hell, takes 5th, wins some bouts against top opponents) I'll congratulate him and listen to all the talk he wants to give because he'll have earned it.

    D-bag, an obvious reference to his d-bag daddy. But thanks for playing.

    Don't they get 2 kilos on second day now?

    I was just thinkin (in regards to Zahid and Marky), if either of then dont take an Olympic Shirt, which I think they will, i wonder if they would bump weights in college (gotta assune yes) unless going down. Hall has said repeatedly that 74 kilos is too hard to make. He's slick, but is he powerful enough to go with this crowd? Valencia seems to have the more natural frame for the weight gain.

    Cox, if he can drop the weight. Taylor if not. Big drop off after those two but I'd go Ringer. Nickal and Downey would be a fun bout to watch. Valencia a little outgunned physically to roll with this crowd for the time being. JMHO

    Spoken like a Summa Cum Laude grad of THE Johns Hopkins University! Now get back in your cave (and send me money on GoFundMe, engineers have it rough nowadays...).

    As my late father would say, a mucking fess.

    Don't think he'd take you up on that--one ass whupping is enough!

    Dutt was very gracious in this case and refused to move up. Jong has a beef but don't know his reaction.

    Glad to see justice finally catching up. Never to late to make things right. Glad for Tervel, one of the genuinely good guys in the game.

    Try this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xqB3jVybc9s Dude describes trying to wrestle a "real wrestler" who is quite a bit smaller and younger than he is. He learns a lesson.

    "All I did was" coupled with "many people were saying" and "many people tell me." Dig in and double down. Career in politics awaits...

    Toadies and cleaners and sweepers out in full force. Responsible comment: "The kid looks like he could be competing on the senior level, a real beast. Some coaches are even mumbling about Anthony's age, but no one's provided any facts to back up the grumbling. Kind of a shame, but the cracks at his integrity can't overshadow what an incredible performance he's given." Irresponsible: repeating grandstand rumors and locker room innuendos that arouse suspicion without a gram of evidence to support them or making a professional attempt to verify their credibility. You know, we may find out the kid is 35, but get the damn facts and verify them before you smear someone's name and freaking apologize when you do.

    If you repeat a rumor or innuendo without verifying its accuracy, just man up and say, "Yeah, I shouldn't have done that, wasn't fair to the kid to repeat that without looking into it." Done. Finished. All forgiven and we move on. To dig in, though, just not cool. And the kid's performance grew his fanbase, not a baseless (as of now) accusation that calls into question his ethics and integrity.

    "I never said he was ineligible, I just repeated that a lot of coaches were saying that without verifying whether or not there was any basis for such a claim."

    I agree. I look at examples of Cassar, McCoy, etc., who became better by going up in weight and not cutting and I can see him eventually fitting in that mold. Cutting can affect someone who's never done it before--too many times for the worse. I guess we'll see, but he's a great kid, humble and hard-working, and I hope for nothing but he best for him.
