  1. If you watch the 2016 Olympics for Greco, escapes from bottom are heavily used. The bottom wrestler is so defenseless in Greco (most points are scored in parterre because the rules favor the top wrestler) that I think they saw an opportunity to escape the pressure cooker and risk the throw. They changed the rules after that to start flat on your belly to discourage escapes and there is also a point of emphasis if you move away from the top wrestler they can caution you for negativity. It never gets called because a lot of escapes happen after failed lifts.
  2. This was an amazing match, low scoring but a ton of action. It is hard to find a match with Fadzayev losing. I think Wilson may have beaten him twice during his carear:
  3. I would like to see the coaches vote on AA's (or give them to the top eight seeds), but in no order to them.
  4. This is a great idea, they could run the tournament in one day! KUDOS @MadMarge! Unfortunately, it will never happen :(
  5. Will this be the death of the dreaded ref and opposing coach hand shake?? I for one hope so.
  6. I hope they allow fans, I've been looking forward to not flying to this event for a couple of years. If they don't allow fans, why hold it at US Bank?

    If you are on bottom getting flattened out with a leg ride and an arm bar, wishing you life was over, the ref will continually ring you up for stalling. On the other hand, you can do pretty much whatever the heck you want on top or on your feet and never get a called. Maybe the auto-stall calls (5-seconds and leaving the mat when not scrambling) have something to do with it. It is so frustrating to watch people flee the mat on their feet and parallel ride for days.
  8. If Red did expose, it would have been 2R 1B. If Red scored on an action and then Blue gains control, it is a one point move for Blue. It doesn't matter if it looks like he completed the takedown or reversed Red.
  9. Nickel gassing is a product of the size difference. If you wrestle someone bigger that has a modicum of wrestling competency, they will suck your energy like a heatsink.
  10. @JasonBryant has hinted that Women's beach wrestling would be the balance to greco in 2024.

  12. Don't help the noobs. They need to learn these lessons for themselves.
  13. @TBar1977 took that joke in stride, respect! Whoops, need to retract that last statement. Joke seemed to hit a little too close to home.
  14. "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone." Does it seem like Jesus was being a little self righteous in his condemnation of the self righteous??
  15. Willie is a big boy and can take care of his own problems without the pretend lawyers wringing their hands over his steps or missteps.
