  1. Is there a list of times when everyone else weighed-in? I want to know if anyone was allowed to weigh-in at 8:01 a.m.
  2. http://uploads.matburn.com/42/42704/2576027556056c0a8a8043.pdf
  3. The thing is, they have a tiebreak they use in the first period to break a 0-0 tie. It's called the shot clock (actually, it's called the "activity period"). People seem okay with that. But then they use a completely different tiebreak at the end (criteria). Why not just keep it consistent?
  4. I don't mind the first criteria (the highest value of holds). I don't mind the second criteria (the least amount of cautions). Both of those give a small indication of who the better wrestler was. But the third criteria (the last technical point(s) scored) doesn't indicate anything. Changing it to first point wouldn't help either. I know some argue that it shows who was working harder at the end, but idk that it always does. Either way, someone is losing at the end and is trying to score. You might as well flip a coin. ... I wonder what would happen if, say, the NFL adopted the same criteria: (1) most touchdowns, (2) least penalties, (3) last point(s) scored. I think I'd feel the same; first two are okay, last one sucks.
  5. Because the score does not end up tied, as it does now. A score of 4-4 is certainly confusing. (I could be wrong, but I think in one of James Green's matches against Yianni, he thought he won. If not, it was another match that night.) EDIT: Yes it was Green. https://www.flowrestling.org/video/6833703-65-kg-semifinal-yianni-diakomihalis-spartan-combat-rtc-vs-james-green-njrtcsertc
  6. Not to beat a dead horse, I realize a lot of folks like criteria as is, but I still think it's confusing to the average fan. I've seen matches as recently as the past couple months where world class wrestlers don't realize they've lost. I think a good compromise would be to use the existing criteria rules to put someone on the shot clock for 30 seconds. So maybe, at the 6:00 mark, the "criteria winner" has choice of who is to be put on the shot clock. (Of course nobody would choose themselves. Would they?) Then they wrestle an additional 30 seconds to break the tie. This is kinda/sorta like the 30-second "Ultimate Tiebreaker" rideout/escape that U.S. high school rules use to break ties.
  7. In 2016, looks like the non-Olympic worlds were not announced until May 11. So it seems they could do the same this year, hopefully for all 30 weights. Here's the link.
  8. I wonder if they could just do the same tournament (maybe condense in to 2 days) in September/November (or whenever things are back to normal).
  9. It's my understanding that the current cap is on the number of wrestlers, not on the number of weight classes. I think there are 20 wrestlers per bracket, multiplied by 18 weight classes, that makes 360 wrestlers. They could add more weight classes by reducing the size of the brackets, but they don't want to do this because that would result in fewer countries represented. It's similar to the reason they have 2 bronzes: they want more counties getting medals. Not only does the medal diversity make the sport look better, but it also keeps countries in the game that might otherwise defund or drop the sport altogether.
  10. They just dropped Greco from the 2022 youth Olympic games: https://www.insidesport.co/2022-youth-olympic-games-greco-roman-makes-way-for-beach-wrestling/
  11. If nothing else, it would be a cool Beat the Streets match-up.
  12. Maybe he was the one doing the bathroom pranks mentioned on FRL. (I'm joking, know he's in PA.)
  13. In the On Demand link at the top, all the replays seem to work. Not sure about the live stream... I've only checked at midnight ET and it seems turned off.

  15. Maybe deserves its own thread, but D3 Brockport State's Don Murray is entering year #50. https://spark.adobe.com/page/8NNbbGFdxrzhI/
