  1. Tucker has the #1 rated show in prime time television, but the local Courier Journal in KY, and USA Today both acknowledge the Bail Project as being one of two bail organizations that have raised over $16-Million in donated funds to bail out criminals playing off the emotions of civil unrest. Novogratz is the leader of the Bail Project, and one of the ambassadors of wrestling and founding members of Beat the Streets. It's not a good optic. But I encourage you to do your own research. I'm not your assistant. I provided a foundation here for further review. https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2020/09/26/louisville-groups-bailing-out-hundreds-breonna-taylor-protesters-want-reform/3535459001/

  3. With Michael Novogratz funding civil disruption and anarchy in our streets, Cael Sanderson endorsing Rokfin, there seems to be a lot of pressure on Flowrestling to up their game if they are to stay afloat. In one way I see the new landscape as bringing competition to wrestling media and exposure, but on the other hand I think that some of the so called ambassadors of our sport are exposed in ways that are not helpful.
  4. The question was who would I put on Mt. Rushmore. Longevity, and contribution to the sport, Olympic Worlds, International record should be considered, notice, Dake missed world teams, as did Taylor, Oliver's international accolades are not as good as my list, Brett Metcalf fell short post college. There are so many great wrestlers. Gable & Cael impacted the sport in dramatic ways, Burroughs and Smith international accolades are the best our country has produced, and yet, I haven't mentioned some of my favs like Dave Schultz, Kenny Monday, and many many more. adding this, actually, I overlooked that this was exclusive to college. Update: Cael Gable Dake I can think of 10 for the 4th spot.

  6. Thank you Tigerfan. I will try to write posts that are more agreeable to this board. Because that is what is important.
  7. WHO is a corrupt organization that has the authority to declare a pandemic. Stick with me now. Yes, those dates are facts. Not to be confused with the dates of when each president declared a health emergency. Trump wins that argument as well.
  8. Correct, which is why it's so great that Trump took initiatives to tighten the border, issue a Travel Ban early on despite media objections, and took only two days to declare a national emergency after WHO declared coronavirus a pandemic. In 2009 it took Obama more than four months and over 1000 deaths to make the same decision. We're in a good place.
  9. I'll leave this here. June 11, 2009 World Health Org declared H1N1 Swine Flu a pandemic October 24, 2009 Obama Declared a National Emergency over H1N1 (Over 1,000 were dead already) March 11, 2020 WHO declared coronavirus a pandemic March 13, 2020 Trump Declares National Emergency over the virus
  10. I could suggest that opening the border, abolishing ICE, allowing illegal immigrants who have contracted COVID-19 to roam through our borders untested, to receive free medical assistance, overwhelm our hospitals, and go to school for free, and infect our children at school is an agenda supported by one of the two presidential candidates.
  11. Daily Signal: "Before it was over, the pandemic had hit 60.8 million Americans, hospitalized 274,304, and killed 12,469, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This was the H1N1 virus, also known as the swine flu, which emerged in April 2009 and lasted until April 2010." https://www.dailysignal.com/2020/03/16/a-tale-of-2-pandemics-and-the-governments-response/
  12. Gateway Pundit is predominately an aggregation site that shares video, and social media content in connection with articles written by other online publications. I've done a lot of research over the years on WHO and their corruption. Would the Guardian make you happy? Senior WHO official accused of using Ebola cash to pay for girlfriend's flight https://www.theguardian.com/global-development/2019/jan/18/senior-world-health-organization-official-accused-of-using-ebola-cash-to-pay-for-girlfriends-flight-corruption-racism-sexism Their leader was involved in Marxism, has favored China over the US in this pandemic, has been involved with sexual harrassment, embezzlement, first class flights, five star hotels, using public funds.
  13. Many would disagree with your assessment. The travel ban was a proactive step. Vetting the data from many corrupt institutions is necessary. Once he returned from his trip to India, he ramped this thing up. If you take the state of Washington out of the equation the numbers in February were very low. The incorporation of Target, Walgreens, and Walmart to collect test samples that can now be automatically tested with a machine will rapidly speed up the process. Trump has already held more press conferences, enhanced the same team used by Obama, and has engaged in unprecedented approach to this virus compared to previous viruses. Swine infected millions, killed a thousand people before Obama reacted.
  14. Or this one: Evidence Shows Director General of WHO Overstated the Fatality Rate of the Coronavirus Leading to the Greatest Global Panic in History.Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus falsely claimed in March the fatality rate for the coronavirus was much higher than the flu. https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2020/03/exclusive-evidence-shows-director-general-of-world-health-organization-severely-overstated-the-fatality-rate-of-the-coronavirus-leading-to-the-greatest-global-panic-in-history/ Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus is corrupt as the day is long. The WHO has been riddled with corruption related to scandal after scandal and fraud.
  15. The media was pointing all of their arrows at Trump, attempting to pin the blame of a pandemic to his door step. The virus started in China. Arrests have been made to Harvard scientists like Dr. Lieber for connections made between Wuhan and his team. Trump was called a xenophobe for his early travel ban that proved to be the correct decision. The team assembled to address this problem is the same team used by Obama. To suggest as Biden did that he would put together a better team that the one he himself hired is ridiculous. We can sling mud all day long, but what truly needs to happen is for Americans to unite, and see this thing through in the best way possible given the current set of circumstances.
  16. I don't think anyone is suggesting that COVID-19 is a hoax. There have been 18 CoronaViruses before the 19th in addition to more deadly viruses like Swine without the kind of media panic push. The exaggerations, disinformation, and misquotes or half statements to forge a political agenda has resulted in the worst world economic collapse that can be attributed to a virus in world history. This is not smart. There must be a line drawn where the push to take precautions matches well with the economic picture. People who lose their jobs, lose their health insurance, and this leads to additional health concerns, not less. It's easy for Tom Hanks & Idrid Elba talk about precautions, but the welder and carpenter can't just teleconference their job performance from home. We still need manufacturing and processors for Amazon deliveries, drivers, etc. Everyone has a role to play. Politics division needs to stop. But it won't because of radically deranged activists, and fear mongers who hope the economy fails so they can have a better chance of winning an election.
  17. I would definitely stipulate that the numbers will rise as testing increases.
  18. I've read through the article and noted several reference links to source info from WHO CDC etc. It's a fair analysis in my book, definitely not any worse than the MSM getting so many things wrong over the past three years. Reading it won't hurt anyone.
  19. This link at the CDC shows ZERO cases reported on 03/14 & 03/15 and only six total cases reported since 03/12. This is a good trend. Let's hope that people are taking better precautions than NWCA to keep these numbers much lower than what the Medium.com article reported: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/cases-updates/cases-in-us.html?CDC_AA_refVal=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.cdc.gov%2Fcoronavirus%2F2019-ncov%2Fcases-in-us.html Also, there seems to be some false reporting from the media. This report is worth a look: The Coronavirus Fatality Rate Reported by the Media Is COMPLETELY INACCURATE. The Actual Rate Is LESS THAN THE FLU: https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2020/03/breaking-exclusive-the-coronavirus-fatality-rate-reported-by-the-media-is-completely-inaccurate-the-actual-rate-is-less-than-the-flu-media-lying-again/
  20. CoronaV has been politicized to the hilt as has been the case with too many other stories that in those cases, not in this one, have turned out to be hoaxes. E Jean Carroll lifted her rape allegation from a Law and Order episode, Gloria Allred forged a yearbook to win a Senate seat, Juicy Smollay tried to lynch himself, while Epstein definitely did not lynch himself, then we have Russia, Ukraine, and now this monster of a story hyped by the media, and activist celebrities like Tom Hanks & Idris Elba making videos announcing they're sick. Like the boy who cried wolf the problem with Fake News is that one day when the news is to be taken seriously, it won't be. Covid-19 Corona Virus is real. In fact they've actually covered this exact scenario in October 2019: https://www.newgreektv.com/news-in-english-for-greeks/world/item/32105-event-201-pandemic-exercise-highlights-reel-vid and Gates funded Pirbright Institute has a patent on the darn thing.
  21. The OP raises a fair question. I'm posting this Youtube that hopefully will open at the 2:30 mark in the video where RBY's arm is back just before a strong offensive leg attack using both arms. I'm in the camp that it can be considering stalling if that's all you do, but wrestling with one arm and your opponent still doesn't score, it's worth looking at that one trick pony as well. Shak is a great example how his opponents don't even tease him with a cradle look because he'll take it.
  22. I think in part because of time we've seen an unprecedented amount of Gable athletes go on to coach. Pearsall is an assistant with Penn, Nickerson with Northern Colorado, Jordan Leen at Pitt with Gavin staying at his alma mater, Ramos w/ UNC, and Coleman Scott also at UNC. Likely there is not enough time to see how the tree shakes out. Certainly Gable has influenced many of the top coaches.
  23. Wrestling Stats comparison by weight with their predictions. I think their system gets it significantly wrong at 184, 197, and 285, not so much with the outcome, but more so with the scores not being close. Although I posted my "wishful" prediction earlier in this thread, I also think this is perhaps more of an uphill battle for Penn State than the uphill battle they faced against tOSU in Rec Hall two years ago. 125 https://www.wrestlestat.com/compare/wrestler/56935/meredith-brandon/49146/lee-spencer Spencer Lee over Brandon Meredith 17 - 1 TF 133 https://www.wrestlestat.com/compare/wrestler/49665/bravo-young-roman/49117/desanto-austin Austin DeSanto over Roman Bravo-Young 7 - 6 141 https://www.wrestlestat.com/compare/wrestler/49276/lee-nick/49148/murin-max Nick Lee over Max Murin 8 - 6 149 https://www.wrestlestat.com/compare/wrestler/49156/verkleeren-jarod/39919/lugo-patricio Patricio Lugo over Jarod Verkleeren 8 - 4 157 https://www.wrestlestat.com/compare/wrestler/49277/berge-brady/44572/young-kaleb Kaleb Young over Brady Berge 8 - 3 165 https://www.wrestlestat.com/compare/wrestler/39542/joseph-vincenzo/44574/marinelli-alex Vincenzo Joseph over Alex Marinelli 7 - 4 174 https://www.wrestlestat.com/compare/wrestler/44839/hall-mark/39526/kemerer-michael Mark Hall over Michael Kemerer 7 - 3 184 https://www.wrestlestat.com/compare/wrestler/54280/brooks-aaron/56936/assad-abe Abe Assad over Aaron Brooks 10 - 3 197 https://www.wrestlestat.com/compare/wrestler/20305/rasheed-shakur/49151/warner-jacob Shakur Rasheed over Jacob Warner 12 - 3 MD 285 https://www.wrestlestat.com/compare/wrestler/50625/nevills-seth/50650/cassioppi-anthony Anthony Cassioppi over Seth Nevills 17 - 3 MD
