  1. Thanks
    wrestlingshoe reacted to Lurker in Pat Downey Calling out Taylor for PEDS again...   
    A) When that is anything more than your uninformed opinion, I'll revisit this.  But you do need a correction because he did earn that right.  Just because you don't like it doesn't make your opinion a fact.  That's free advice, it may help you some day.
    2) And even if that's what it is, he earned that privilege.  So again, just because you don't like it, doesn't mean its not his right.  Hate to break it to you but you are not the authority on what someone's rights are, nor are you the authority on decisions you have zero knowledge about.  
     
    Don't worry not trying to change your mind.  We all know how you feel about anything that goes against YOUR way of thinking.  Just pointing out a few things you seem to have little concept of.

    The irony for Dake would be watching Jordan leave his shoes on the mat after Jordan wins the Olympic Gold. Which is not out of the question.

    I do agree with a lot of what you say, except, if Dake were to go up to 86 he would be running from the man he just blind sided. Would be a no win for him.  I am a JB fan and hope he wins, but I also know the reality of time. It will be a highly anticipated series and one more year will only intensify the drama.

    Huh?  Not sure what your problem with JB is.   I thought he was very calm in the interview while still using the ultimate comeback of how many times he's beaten Dake.   I think the only thing he did in that interview that I wasn't a huge fan of was disparage the non-Olympic weights...but it is true...
    I don't think the interview will have any impact on what happens next year and it's possible it was staged, but I can't imagine Dake gained any fans from that...

    Dake was talking over JB and interrupting him way more.  Between that, the “I’m getting younger” nonsense, and the complaining about the trials setup Dake was 100% cringe.

    If you have people in your life that seem nice on the outside AND live life thinking of others and building others up on the day to day--even privately maintaining respect and trying to reconcile with ones who mistreat them--it's no longer impossible to believe that those types of people exist elsewhere too.

    Dake comes across as a fake tough guy. JB says what’s up Kyle and right away Dake comes across like a punk. He may well be right, JB just may be too old, but if it comes down to a battle of mental toughness, I’ll take JB all day.

    You are either in love with Dake or hate JB. Add this comment to your others on the international board and it is clear... you have issues.

    wrestlingshoe got a reaction from lost in Is there any path for US Freestyle/GR wrestlers that does not go through the NCAA?   
    LJB, You are an elitist.  The purpose of high school sports in general is for young people to have a positive and active activity to participate in, to learn life skills and sportsmanship. Look at almost any other sport and it is the same way.  The local HS teams for the most part are made up of participants, kids who want to be a part of something, kids who want to be with their friends.  In the grand scheme of things, that is more important.   The club or traveling team is made up of the top level guys.  That is why a large number of premier soccer players will not participate on HS teams.  They know that HS soccer is not at their level. Instead of being the "a$$hole" travel to your big tourneys for your kids, step back and allow the local sports to have the massive impact on society that they do.  And just because you travel all over and witness high level wrestling doesn't mean you have any idea what is like to be one of those kids filling a spot on their high school team.  There are many more participants filling a spot than champions in this world and we are better off because of the participants and they are better of for participating. If a HS track team has 100 members, there three times as many on the JV team than varsity.  That is a good thing.  As a HS coach, it is quite common to have a conversation with one of my former wrestlers who would be considered a "participant" who looks back at their days on the mat as a turning point in their life. Sometimes it is a wrestler who won one, two, maybe three matches in their career.  But, the impact the sport had on their life is immeasurable.

    LJB, I mostly find your straightforward thoughts harmless and good contributions to the discussion. I agree with your comments most of the time. But what people who say, "I'm just not afraid to tell the truth and others are" are really saying is, "I care more about my message landing flush than I do about giving any respect cues to the people receiving it."   You're confusing honesty with lack of desire to show respect in culturally normal ways. It's possible to be very honest and also to show respect.

    That is not the rhetoric you spew. You talk about how awful most local HS wrestling is.  I am a freestyler at heart. That is my favorite style. But, folkstyle offers wrestling a path through public schools that freestyle never will. Would I like some rule changes in folk, yes. But, I will pump up HS wtestling and it's benefits because it is by far one of the best places for young people to learn and grow.
