    Maybe, maybe not, but not based on that match. He was a passivity machine. The Tank was in neutral. Probably the least impressive gold medal match. Anyway, he won.

    Hopefully we can find a way to thank NBC for their great coverage of all of the wrestling.  The coverage and the "thanks" could help wrestling's cause, including adding weight classes.

    I’m gonna play the game, why not, hear me out. 
     
    The main thing about weights in the Olympics appears to be gross total of bodies. I personally like this games’ smaller bracket. What about taking that another step, in the spirit of compromise…
    Cut the bracket again to 8, and go back to ten weights. That’s actually a net decrease of 16 athletes per style, but obviously an increase in of four weight classes. That increase creates opportunity windows for more countries to qualify and to medal. The qualifying would be top two at world. Winner of each continental. Top two at last change qual, with a true second. 
     
    Argument could be made for 12 man bracket. That makes an even swap of total qualifiers. I personally don’t like it because I want to keep an even balanced bracket. When we are narrowing it down it really is even more “very best of the best” and I don’t want anyone to have the advantage of a bye after weigh in at the Olympics. An argument to that, could be that top four getting byes gives more incentive to get to the ranking series events, and it’s a good argument. I just prefer even bracket all things considered. 
     
    What would we think about something like that?

    i think this is the best olympic coverage ever.
    every single match is live on olympic channel and then they play replays of it darn near all day.
    if you don't have that channel you can watch live online on nbcolympics. 
    it's also been on USA channel.
    if you don't have any of those options available to you...idk...look in to getting one of them

    Only having 6 weight classes has screwed up Olympic wrestling, IMO.   Too many guys wrestling at inappropriate weight.

    My God, haha, you are abysmal at having productive discussions. You then pretend that everyone is too beneath you to go into anything further, as our minds are not capable of the knowledge you are capable of bestowing upon us.
    I happen to agree with above posters, you do not actually EVER go into any technical aspect of wrestling when in any discussion on here. You just tell everyone how stupid they are, and never explain how or why. 
    Life must be so difficult and lonely for you, as I couldn't imagine being so superior to everyone of my peers, that I could never relate to those peasant human beings. I feel so bad for you!

    not for nothing, but it may or may not be coincidence that the end of that run of Hall, Paulson, Lindland is around the same time frame USA Wrestling started putting alot of focus on offering folkstyle regional and national events.  I grew up competing against Hall and Paulson, and I can tell you we had zero folkstyle options between March and November. 
    But now.....

    I didn’t say you don’t know what the word means, I said you use it so frequently it seems as if you believe it applies in more places than it actually does.
    my point is that you utilize a deflective, non-engaging style of half discussion which favors repetitive use of vocabulary and ad hominem turns over staying on point and actually discussing wrestling…
    Wrestling seems merely to be the field upon which you hurl insults.
    Maybe you are so fortunate as to be surrounded in your daily life by people with whom you can engage in unlimited wrestling discussion. Many others can’t, don’t enjoy such a luxury…
