  1. I don’t watch cable news, but if you want better resources for the epidemiological and public health components of the pandemic, I would highly recommend: This Week in Virology podcast, https://www.microbe.tv/twiv/ STAT scientific news, https://www.statnews.com/ and the American Medical Association Q&As https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jama/pages/covid-19-interviews I’m sorry I don’t have time to respond to you thoroughly, I manufacture Covid medicine for a living so you can imagine we are pretty busy, but wrestling forums probably aren’t the best way to convince people on science topics anyway. Have a good one and sincerely happy to hear you and your family have recovered well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. IOC is now categorically denying this report FYI Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I can’t remember the term from my sports psych classes when elite athletes wrongly attribute their success to woowoo nonsense and superstition but it is extremely common and Dake is a prime example. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I fear getting into this here, but the short answer is no, it’s not enough to just get the vulnerable vaccinated. Couple reasons: 1) a lot of the most vulnerable, such as people with chronic and immunocompromised, can’t be vaccinated. 2) we are obviously trying to avoid deaths, but Covid has been shown to cause lasting damage to multiple organ systems, especially heart and lungs, even in the most elite athletes. Long term individual and social cost is extremely high. 3) more cases -> more chances for mutations -> potentially less effective vaccines and treatments -> longer pandemic. Now, the question of what is or is not “worth it” isn’t a scientific one necessarily, but the idea that if someone doesn’t die it’s all gravy, even if they can’t breathe for two weeks and have permanently scarred organs, seems misguided.

  5. It was never going to happen. 11,237 athletes competed at the Olympic Games in Rio in 2016, from over 200 delegations. Easily the population of a mid sized city when the coaches, refs, facilities crews, and media are counted. Having that many people travel, live together, and return home would be criminal; even if half opted out it would threaten any progress we have made fighting the pandemic by then. My heart does break for the athletes. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I just don't see how that would make it more exciting at the end. Someone is always winning or losing at the end of the match and might be defensive. There is no way criteria gets rid of that unless you legitimately want "last point wins", which you obviously don't.
  7. Disagree. I am going to work a lot harder in the beginning of the match if I know going on the shot clock means potentially losing criteria, while the last point doesn't encourage any action additional to what would have already been happening. Also never wrestled a match when I couldn't remember who scored first, and you use the underline.
  8. Seriously, though >One criteria: First Point Scored >Add the point at the end if the score is tied >Switch to Sudden Death for medal matches and/or "PPV" cards
  9. I still can’t believe he hit the Rock Bottom in a senior level freestyle match. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. It was Vito's move, but I don't think Georgia exposed somehow.
  11. 11-13 with two minutes left still. Awesome.
  12. I try to respect everyone who steps on the line, but had that Spanish dude legit wrestled at the senior level before?
