  1. I agree with you. But I started this tangent by noting that in at least one of the states in which I work, a wrestling match would not be considered a contact which I would have to report in the case of a positive test.
  2. Hopkins says "no" to spreading via sweat. https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/health/conditions-and-diseases/coronavirus/coronavirus-frequently-asked-questions
  3. Well, at least Ultimate is up and running!
  4. An interesting thing to note about wrestling: I know that a lot of states (maybe all?) do not even consider you a contact, for the purpose of contact tracing, unless you have been in close proximity to an infected person for at least 15 minutes. Now I am not saying that you cannot catch the disease in less than 15 minutes. I am just saying that is an interesting fact... you could have a wrestling match against someone and not even be considered a contact. I believe that a typical college match lasts around nine minutes of real time?
  5. You don't understand what analogy? Soccer does more than approach people, though it may be brief. I have seen a few games and yes, even played it. I also wrestled, so I understand that. I was just explaining the argument for why soccer could be more dangerous than wrestling. It was not my argument, it was an argument that I had heard from a credible (but biased) source. I fully agree that the fact that it is played outdoors on a larger surface brings reduced risk.
  6. I don't think Covid is spread from sweat to sweat gland. I could be wrong.
  7. I'm not thinking soccer is a huge risk, but they do more than "approach" each other.
  8. In soccer, there are 11x as many opposing players on the playing surface who could potentially expose someone to disease as wrestling would. However, soccer does has the benefit of being outside.
  9. 195 seems like a terrible weight to attract the BIG names. 200 or 205 may have been better.
  10. Definitely fair to keep him in the category, I just knew he had a lot of matches. Was D3 nationally ranked on several occasions I think, but bombed in the post-season.
