  1. well, of course... (obvious answer is obvious)
  2. im sure if you had asked either one of them they both would have said they wanted to end it in dominant fashion in regulation, but, you know, both being bad a$$es and all that...
  3. and furthermore, i think we all can agree either one of them had a much better chance of riding the other out for a quick 30 seconds then taking a chance with a shot that wasn't 100% and the resulting countering of the other... folk rules dictated that match... oh yeah... there was no stalling...
  4. rideouts are a crapshoot but that ride time is gonna give you choice and that is where it comes into play... particularly because they kinda screwed fix with putting down after the phantom lock hands call... that gave suriano an inflated ride time... all signs pointed to him getting choice... that was gonna be the deciding factor... that is until he went all handsy...
  5. OT went on until the match ended... no rideouts... that was the difference... they could not rely on on getting through a minute and then escape or hold down for 30 seconds... that match was just gonna go on and on until it didn't... and you are gonna love this... i went back and watched the first 3 periods after biscuit flip made his bold prediction about stall calls deciding last weekend and i was snickering at him... i could not remember if there had been any stall warnings or not in that match... my assumption was that there had not been for all the reasons there were not any last weekend... in the second the ref gave a double stall warning... now, does he do that if it is not an exhibition match? i can't say, but, it was definitely just a call for the ref's own sake... it didn't change any of the action... i'm guessing it just made him feel like he was doing somehting...
  6. the first 3 periods at WNO looked exactly the same... it was OT where they stepped it up a level or two... why? because of the rule set... and to be fair, that match didn't have anything on the line other than the wrestling itself... that has to be factored in some fashion... last weekend there were implications beyond just that match...
  7. the weight of opinion on a forum means little... and what you term knowlegeable is suspect at best... you claimed pre match it would be decided on stall calls... i laughed at that... you know why? because the way they wrestle is not stalling as per the folk rule set... i was proven right and you wrong... it is why you keep coming back on this... and yes, i have a very large disdain for folk rules because it rewards not wrestling... and no matter the score of fix v suriano... no matter how much the masses were so unhappy with that match... it was very good wrestling... as were their previous 2 matches... and they all looked the same... that is how it is going to go when they wrestle... regardless of the rule set... and as was proven, one rule set they got put on a shot clock and points were rewarded... one rule set they did not... but the matches were all the exact same...
  8. i've also seen way more egregious non-wrestling not dinged for stalling... clearly i am interpreting the rules correctly as per the no stalls called... personal reasons? you keep fishing...
  9. if you want double stall called more frequently (and i would not argue against that) then you will have to change the way the rules are written... as per the rules they were not stalling... shots are not synonymous with action... they stayed engaged... they were both creating action... they stayed in the middle of the mat... neither avoided contact... neither ran... neither were stalling... don't like it? blame folk... in free they would have been put on a shot clock and points would have been rewarded... just like they were in akron... i would not have disagreed with that happening... as per free rules the shot clock would have been warranted... but, folk not so much... again, why?
  10. it is the same argument... the refs who are paid to call it didn't... why? because they were not stalling as per the rules of folk... you can't say they were afraid to call it because they were not afraid to drag the match out to make the right calls (which they did and did) and they damn sure were not afraid to end the match on a correctly called infraction of the worst rule in folk...
  11. you never answered the question... was stalling called?
  12. just asking... i mean they did call stalling at other points of that dual, yes? but, not this match... because they were not stalling...
  13. the head of referee recruitment in my state has been trying to get me to start reffing... i told him you don't want me reffing folk... i will throw stall calls out like they are going out of style... folk coaches/wrestlers/parents would absolutely hate me...
