    No one who didn't stress about someone without a flu shot being around their kid in 2018 should stress about someone without the COVID vaccine being around their kid in 2021. 
    Unvaccinated kids have better COVID outcomes than vaccinated adults. [Source: nymag.com]
    "Long COVID" in kids is a very small risk. [Source: BBC]
    All vaccines are not created equal. The polio vaccine I got when I was a kid means I have a 0% chance of getting polio my entire lifetime. The COVID vaccine I got earlier this year means I can still get COVID, still transmit COVID, but supposedly means I will have a better outcome if I do get it. Oh, and it might have an expiration date and I'll need a booster. And the booster will mean what? If it means as much as the original vaccine, it won't mean much. 
    In my opinion, the precautions taken to prevent COVID are extraordinarily out of proportion with the risk of COVID. A buddy of mine moved to Sweden in early 2020 before COVID hit. Had I known then what was coming, I might have stowed away in his suitcase. COVID is real in Sweden too, but life is normal.

    Wait WHAT ?!?!?! 
    So you acknowledge that both vaccinated and unvaccinated people get covid.  Yet, you are somehow blaming someone who is not vaccinated for your hypothetical covid case and hypothetical transmission.  
    You have been fully vaccinated, but worry about both getting covid and transmitting it.  Have you honestly thought about the logic of having such minimal faith in the vaccine...yet getting upset about someone choosing not to get it.

    This happens all the time on these forums. You see it with greco supporters a lot trying to convince everyone that their style is the superior style of wrestling.

    So here’s three,
    Rick Sanders. Three world medals, ( 1, Gold, 1 Silver, and 1 Bronze, along with two Olympic Silvers. Might have had more except that he was killed in a tragic automobile accident. Additionally Sanders like Bobby Douglas competed in Greco as well as Freestyle on the World team. 
    Larry Kristoff winner of 5 World medals, ( 3 Silvers, 2 Bronze ). Plus a pretty good coaching career afterwards. 
    Bobby Douglas as mentioned above Wrestled Freestyle and Greco, and won a World Silver and a Bronze. Like Kristoff, Douglas had a very significant coaching career afterwards.

    The virgos horiscope in the NYT's read: "There are major upheavals afoot. ... Even if your life is thrown into turmoil over the next 48 hours, something good will come of it eventually."
     
    When I think of #NeverForget, I think not only of the poor souls, and very brave souls, who died that day, and those whose life would never be the same....but I also think a lot about what started to happen two days later.  We had an American crisis on our hands, the likes of which we had never seen before in this country.  Sound familiar?  And what I remember is that for a while there, we were all Americans working together through this American crisis.  My neighbor wasn't a left or right or snowflake or libtard, he was my neighbor, and we were in this together.

    Why do you always post about wanting people to quit wrestling?

    Here's a serious answer to your dumb question. You only get so much time to wrestle, and when it's gone, it's gone for good. Some guys want to keep doing something they love for as long as they can because they won't ever get to do it again. Everyone wrestles their last match someday, and some want that last match to come as late as possible. Wrestling at a high level is something few people have the opportunity to do, and who are you to tell them they should give that up? Do you think these wrestlers are going to look back and be like, "I shouldn't have wrestled those last two years. Think of all the good work I could have been doing in the gym equipment sales industry."

    Inspired by another thread, I let my finger do the googling and these are the first few resources I discovered that looked interesting. 
    If anyone has experience with these or knows other resources to learn how to coach greco, maybe I won't be the only one who would appreciate thoughts from the folks who have way more experience with greco than I do.

    Kamal Bey actually had a coach that knew about and pushed greco(and could “mostly” keep him under control, but that’s a whole separate issue)
    The real problem is that there are very few coaches that know Greco and fewer opportunities to do it. Ignorance and lack of access.. not fear are the issue. 
     
    I have a kid who joined as a sophomore and later in season. So first move he learned was a body lock. And double unders. Because that’s what we’re doing that day and we actually rep it. He was hooked and loves Greco. Hates attacking legs. Whether or not he goes full time will depend on whether or he both locks in and starts improving. The point being, if he joins any of other 5-6 hs he could have instead of mine. Even if he wrestled. He’d have never learned what Greco was. Not because the other coaches are “bad” but because they never wrestled or were even actually exposed to Greco. 
    LJB. I get it’s probably annoying that not many kids want to be practice dummies for your kids. That’s not the same thing as people not joining “out of fear”
