    If he said he doesn't like greco or women's wrestling, where's the bias?  Last I heard, women aren't significant players in the greco world.

    My opinion is that I don't enjoy watching women's wrestling. I wouldn't pay to watch it. Men's wrestling is much more exciting to me, personally. I believe the numbers will show that the majority of fans have a similar opinion.
    Seems like I should get to have that opinion. It may not be diplomatic, nor politically correct - but it's my opinion. In a free country like the US, shouldn't I get to have that opinion and voice it without retribution? Seems like I should. I agree it won't be well received by some, isn't politically correct, and it isn't in the best interest of wrestling - but it is still my opinion.
    That being said, I don't enjoy watching men's volleyball at all. I find it boring, too. Women's volleyball is so much more fun to watch - both beach and indoor. Hands down better.
    As both a collegiate wrestler and collegiate and USVBA volleyball player, it seems like my experience gives my opinion at least some legitimacy. I don't dislike women who wrestle or men who play volleyball... I just wouldn't pay to watch either one.
    What a terrible world it would be if we couldn't voice our opinions, and instead we all were forced to agree on everything.

    I used to like Sarah Hildebrandt.  Then again, I used to like the U.S. National Women's Soccer team.  Still think Goya make the best canned beans around, though.

    I am normally not a fan of PD3's antics, but I think kicking him out of NJRTC is a bit harsh.  
    He should just apologize to Sarah and Jacarra on the next episode of FRL, the NJRTC should take him back if he agrees to stay off social media, and everyone moves forward.  The Eagles aren't cutting DeSean Jackson and he said a lot worse.

    What's sad is this new era of political correctness, where everyone has to hide their true feelings and/or thoughts...even when they're correct, or risk harsh consequences. And, if you knew Downey, he'll continue to get better, has other options, and always has a back-up plan.  You'll see.

    Those mat groupies, and cheerleaders from other teams planting kisses after you win a big match. Used to drive me crazy, I mean, they have no regard for mononucleosis, flu bugs, etc.

    The fan who has an opnion about a match and says the opinion out loud in an apparent attempt to get total strangers to look at him and agree. 
    Stranger: "That had to be 2. I mean, come on." Looks straight ahead
    Me: silence. Look straight ahead.
    Stranger: "I mean, he made two swipes. X got robbed." Gives side glance.
    Me: silence. Look at the stranger.
    Stranger: continues

    1 - The Fan who calls student athletes quitters and weak.  Yeah, you know who you are.  You have a 9-5 job, live paycheck to paycheck, have never won a medal but somehow in your own mind you epitomize success when it comes to wrestling
    2 - The Fan who screams "STALL"...We all know.  You could fight through that hand defense any day of the week and fire off shots faster then Doc & the Earp brothers at the OK Corral
    3 - Angry Dad - We get it.  You sucked at wrestling
    4 - The I always have to reference something CP or Nomad said on FRL Fan
    5 -  The Uncle Rico Fan.  If coach would've put you in the lineup you would've won states

    Somewhat agree but Pyles is arrogant and comes off like a band geek so he won't be able to carry the show now. In fact, the remaining cast all comes off as nerdy frat boys and the show has lost what little personality it had in the form of Willie despite the flaws you correctly point out above.

    If I’m being selfish this sucks for my own entertainment for be short-term. Willie was fantastic for FRL and he is the best wrestling journalist in the business.
    I can’t imagine a FRL with Pyles and Nomad/Bratke as I won’t be able to deal with CP’s monologues and he needs a strong personality to balance his ego. I fear it’ll just be a big echo chamber without Willie. 
    Gotta admire him for his confidence in betting on himself though. He’s so talented and it’ll be cool to see what he does next and hopefully he will make it another fantastic wrestling show or podcast to make some more must watch/listen entertainment.

    Is Trevel considered one of the best?  You could make the argument that once Roselli left in 2016, Snyder has tapered off.  Who else has Trevel been successful with in the last two years?  Also, I said "I get that Snyder has bought into this stuff and don't think he left because of it," but maybe he realized he didn't need any of the other stuff, he just needs great coaching in wrestling.  As I outlined, Cael is the man for the job.  Recruits they have missed out on?  Who knows, I am just saying if you create a mono-culture like Ryan has, it leaves a large percentage of good recruits out.  Better question is which recruits did he get that did not pan out because they didn't fit the mold? Or which recruits regardless of the mold got better?  
    As someone said above, do Ryan and Trevel really have the name recognition?  I think guys were coming to tOSU for Snyder and Stieber.  NEO guys probably for Stieber and JJ.  Hire JJ as HC and Logan as AHC.  If not, we might see this https://twitter.com/trackwrestling/status/1190286270989262848/photo/1

    I might be touching the third rail here, but I think Ryan has built a mono-culture at tOSU.   The whole positive infinity stuff is a veiled nod to a right wing Christian culture.  You have a 4X NCAA Champ and World Champ in your stable and he isn't the ORTC head coach?  While I think Trevel is a decent coach, why isn't Stieber the HC at the ORTC?  I think it is because Trevel and Ryan share the same views and Stieber does not.  Throw in JJ who I don't think he buys into the religion stuff either but is such an Ohio guy, I think he puts up with a lot of stuff.  I get that Snyder has bought into this stuff and don't think he left because of it, but I think it turns a lot of potential recruits off.   Turning to Cael, a guy who was at least raised in a religious family, seldom mentions religion, if at all.  When you go to the house of Cael, you get nothing but wrestling.  When you go to the house of Ryan, it is a mix of wrestling, lifestyle, religion, etc.
