  1. I think JB is as likely to not place as he is to win Gold. Perhaps more likely to not place. He doesn't have the raw explosiveness he once had. After seeing the draw, I predict a 5th place finish, qualifying the weight for the Olympics.
  2. Kyle Dake shuts down guy who has been piss pounding most of the world in the past year. Internet forums: "Dake looks bad, I expect Dieringer to take match 2."
  3. Right on. Next year at Fargo I'm going to buzz up to the head table to question the quality of Flo's streaming, commentary, and customer service. Looking forward to you reporting on that. Also looking forward to how you'll move on after you get done taking your foot put of your mouth on this. Knowing you guys, I imagine you'll just post a few pictures on twitter of either Desanto or Suriano with some hip slang as a caption and call it a day.
  4. As far as cringey goes, this isn't top 20 for PD3. Still, I can't help but root for the guy. I'd prefer this to another cheesy, cliche comment about how the win wasn't in Gods plan like we'd get from the other world team members.
  5. Idk.. what would Ben have done differently in his prime? He tried to wrestle and got kneed in the head.. brutally.
  6. That was difficult to watch.
  7. Looks like Ben Askren might be looking for a job.
  8. I really dont see how anyone is accepting of the officiating or outcome of that match. Its like if the Chiefs were running out the clock against the Patriots in the 4th quarter up by 6 and the Pats challenged a call that overturned a Chiefs touchdown from the 3rd quarter, winning them the game. In no other sport would this be acceptable, and yet here we are, with nobody in any position of power admitting that something is wrong. The second match should be re-wrestled, but that's not going to happen. Zane will be our representative. A bunch of imbeciles will continue to run and officiate this sport.
  9. Because every year Burroughs ages he loses a bit of freakish athleticism, which has always been a large part of his success. Theres a reason he's got a bronze and a DNP in the last 3 years, and it's because he doesnt have the same explosiveness he had when he started at the sr level.
  10. No. It's far more likely there will be 0.
  11. Gable must have got the wrong impression when his coaches told him to "bring his hips to the party." I'll see myself out.
  12. I'm guessing that's probably because the challenge brick is supposed to be thrown within 5 seconds, so not much time should have gone by before the call was reviewed.
  13. Hold on, you have to buy a subscription AND watch ads on flowrestling's platform?
  14. It's a couple sweaty, hairy guys in tights rolling around. If the sport were going to be popular and marketable it would've happened by now.
  15. When is the last time one of these young, explosive athletes won a world medal after stepping up to seniors?
  16. These were my thoughts as well. Dimwitted flo uses the word "stacked" and in doing so, ironically, draws attention to the fact that, by WC standards, it wasnt anything special. Surprised they haven't posted a video of Desanto or Suriano reacting to the retirement news yet.
  17. Per flo: "Upon graduation, Stieber promptly made the 2016 world team at 61 kg and won gold in a stacked world championship bracket." Not attempting to diminish any of Stieber's accomplishments, but wasn't 2016 an Olympic year and most of the studs we're either cutting or bulking to compete in an Olympic weight class? Was it still stacked? I took a look at the bracket and I don't really recognize any of the names outside of Chakaev.
  18. First, both refs apparently agreed on the wrong call. Second, after watching the action up close, they rightly awarded a takedown to Hidlay. Third, I'll attach an image from the angle we have. Regardless, any angle needs to be conclusive to overturn the call on the mat.. Fourth, are you suggesting that refs care more about the correct call when a match will be talked about later? Well, that does sound like the kind of logic an incompetent ref would use, so maybe you're on to something. I think I'm just too emotionally worked up to talk about this anymore. That look on his face will haunt me for weeks.
  19. Hidlay vs. video replay should be a great battle for years to come.
  20. Joseph, Hall, Nickal all did a good job. Good luck to them tomorrow night.
  21. Hey Gable, you gave up a TD. You've got about 30 sec to get out before your opponent earns riding time. Oh.. you're just going to hang out on bottom near the edge of the mat? Okay then. Have fun wrestling tomorrow morning with an equally boneheaded Myles Martin.
  22. I haven't seen this much bad wrestling in a while. Guys not paying attention to riding time, the score, the clock and where they are on the mat and what position they're in. The best wrestler of the evening was **** on by the refs. What a let down.
  23. I'm embarassed for Myles. Did he think he was in the practice room? Just complete disregard for the score and clock. What a moron.
