    I wasn't ranking the reasons. I was just numbering them. Like I explained, the benefit of making folk more like free is that we will be better prepared for international competitions that way. I see that as a benefit. 
     
    I also value folk and I do not want to get rid of it. I just want to improve it. Many matches are unwatchable. 
     
    Finally, what you are calling "consequences" of the push out rule are in no way related to the push out rule, and nobody who supports the push out rule actually supports any of the "consequences" you envision. So it's hard for me to understand why you think there's a connection there.

    1) Nobody is suggesting replacing folkstyle with freestyle. I actually like that we have folkstyle because it's a better base for MMA. But if we can improve folk, why not?
    2) Why do you need to start each period from neutral in order to have pushouts? I don't get that logic. Pushouts are just another tool to prevent stalling and to encourage offense and scoring. It works perfectly well in the folkstyle format. 
    3) Nobody said high schoolers needed to have the push out rule. I don't know whether it would work for them, and frankly I don't care. 
    4) Why would we need to give coaches more challenges? The push out would be just another rule among many that referees have to make calls on.

    All the opposition to the push-out rule is ridiculous. 
     
    1) It will make folkstyle more like freestyle. 
    2) It will reduce the number of stoppages.
    3) It will increase scoring. 
    4) It will reward offensiveness and risk-taking much better than the current rules ever have. 
     
    But none of that matters because:
     
    1) Its so exciting to see whether this is that 1 time in 20 the one guy can pull the other guy pack into the circle. 
    2) It's creates so many random problem with easy fixes, but at the moment I am unable to comprehend any of the easy fixes.
     
    Really?! And you don't understand why this sport keeps getting cut?

    You don't have to imagine what it would be like. You can watch videos of freestyle matches from before and after they had the push out rule. From what I can tell, the push out rule has resulted in more offense and fewer breaks in action. 
     
    Compare to NCAA matches where you see a lot of guys crawling out of bounds, and another guy pulling him back in. What we have now is reverse sumo.

    Hence the frustration with the out of bounds stuff. Guys will win a match on one td and playing the edge for defence.

    Katie got a reaction from GranbyTroll in Burroughs thinks its for an NCAA push-out rule   
    "Folkstyle wrestling needs a push-out rule.  Out of bounds refers to being outside the wrestling boundaries of the mat or “the circle.” Due to the chaotic nature of wrestling, it is normal for wrestlers to go out of bounds frequently during a match. In some cases, wrestlers may intentionally go out when it is to their advantage. Hmmm. In other words, use the line as a safety net to prevent being scored upon. I saw too many guys diving for the line when an opponent was in on their legs. NCAA wrestling needs to create a push-out rule, and force wrestlers to defend in-bounds or give up a point."

    Thinking about the push-out rule specifically, you could address the mat wrestling issue pretty easily. Don't call push outs there. Once there is an escape, you award a point and then start the match back in the center. Only then do you start awarding push-out points again. 
     
    Using the out-of-bounds line to assist in mat wrestling is a separate issue, and could very well be addressed with more aggressive stalling calls.
