    JB

    Wonder why they locked the racism thread.

    Gilman/Fix

    Whether or not someone is crazy has no bearing on whether or not he is tough. BTW "unhinged" was a little strong. I think he's just emotionally stunted. At least, that's the way he comes across in interviews.

    What is wrong with Thomas Gilman?

    I thought his ref joke was funny. But, do you think he was joking about never turning his back on the enemy? Was he joking about the peacock stuff?

    What is wrong with Thomas Gilman?

    When asked to say something about Fix, he demurred, citing his mom's advice "If you don't have anything nice to say about someone, don't say anything at all." What about "he's a great competitor, and I am looking forward to tomorrow"? Cliche, but at least you don't come off as ... uhh ... I don't know ... someone with a personality disorder.

    Gilman/Fix

    Are you serious? He is unhinged. See the Final X press conference for a taste.
  7. I figured it was that time again. I would like to hear from our arm-chair psychologists: what is wrong with Thomas Gilman? Please feel free to cite the DSM-IV. @ 2:10:45 https://www.flowrestling.org/events/6280595-2019-final-x-lincoln/videos?playing=6517699&limit=60

    Pat Downey is still Pat Downey!

    A couple of weeks ago, I asked you guys whether or not I should root for this guy. I got my answer. I will not. I was only considering it because of his "redemption" story and he doesnt seem redeemed (no matter what heflin did). There are some guys who seem like arrogant assholes off the mat but whose style is so compelling that you root for them anyway (Brands). There are some guys who seem like assholes on the mat but whose success is so compelling that you root for them anyway (Tsargush and ... err ... Brands). I don't like Downey's stompy plodding style on the mat and I don't see anything admirable about his off the mat character. So, I will be cheering for the other guy.

    Men’s freestyle WTT day 1 thread

    That dude looked the same in the Denas match as he did in the US open finals vs Metcalf: https://www.flowrestling.org/video/5516322-65kg-f-brent-metcalf-nyac-vs-jordan-oliver-sunkistmp4 I guess he's been operating at 60% his entire career.

    Our guys lift weights too much

    Sorry. My response was just a silly non sequitur. I didn't/don't no what the Dr's comment was about. Thanks for the translation though.

    Our guys lift weights too much

    Is "truth" the "scoundrel" that you used to beat in the face? Is it beaten because you dont like it? Also, if you "used to," is following the truth now problematic? Or is beating the problematic? Perhaps, violence is the issue bc healing is now what breathes life into his ailing soul?

    How big is Fix at 57k?

    Yes. Look at him in comparison to Pletcher. Pletcher is thicker, taller, and longer than Fix: Then check out how fire-plug-esque Pletcher looks against Phillipi: https://www.flowrestling.org/video/6275730-133-lbs-semis-luke-pletcher-ohio-state-vs-micky-phillippi-pittsburgh ***Edit*** My wife just looked and she disagrees. She says Fix looks bigger than Pletcher in that match. So, I was wrong. Maybe, it's Fix's arms. They just seem short to me.

    Fix's loss to Suriano

    I was pissed by Fix's strategy and lack of offense in the finals. I couldn't believe that he basically stood there and looked at Suriano for 8 minutes. But, I guess I didn't respect the challenge presented by Suriano's ability to control the center of the mat and pull the trigger when the match is on the line. With Suriano's win over Colon, I'm reevaluating Fix's performance. Maybe Fix understood that there was only one way to beat the bigger, stronger Suriano: try to hold position and then ride him out. What do you guys think?

    86kg If Taylor Can’t Go...

    Play wrestling gone horribly wrong?Taylor didn't seem to being going full speed on that sprawl and maybe wanted to initiate a scramble. Total speculation.
