    Flo Wrestling log in issues

    is it just me? or would a drop down menu be too much to ask? The new flat look doesn't address the UI/UX experience very much....just flatter...
  3. I missed the part where he "apologized" for his and his Cael's behavior in Lincoln, or any subsequent activity on social media. I don't dislike David but if he has no desire to apologize for anything he has done, he shouldn't. A disingenuous apology is far worse than NO apology.

    No National Duals Next Season

    Any National Duals Championship should be a week after D1 Tournament and with a generous weight allowance. 4 team max maybe even just the top 2. Next year it doesn't matter because PSU vs Ohio State will already of happened during the regular season.

    Flo Reporting Sadulaev is going 97

    UWW does not allow ANY carryover from a different weight class. Helen Maroulis is a defending Olympic Champion and in Paris she will be unseeded. I can understand docking maybe 10% of the seeding points per change of weight class, but to suggest that a defending Olympic Champion deserves NO credit for ...you know ... winning the Olympics within the last year....well that's UWW for you... They just can't help but do stupid s___ and for whatever reason not realize it. So...maybe they meet in the finals.....maybe they meet in the first round...same stupid s___

    Seeding at Worlds

    There is 1 MAJOR FLAW in this system. To somehow completely disregard the results of an athlete because they were in a different weight class is a HUGE mistake. I can understand the sentiment but there needs to be at least some PARTIAL carryover of points from a different weight class. Option #1 - A wrestler loses 10% maybe 20% of their point values for competing in a different weight class. Maybe 10% less for every weight class you jump or drop. Ex: Helen would get 80% of her 53 kg value at the Olympics since she is jumping 2 classes to get to 58 kg or 90% of her 55 kg points. This is made even more relevant by the fact that they are in the process of revamping the weight class categories.

    Help with UWW site!

    Maybe this will help https://unitedworldwrestling.org/event/u23-european-championships
  10. ex: Can Jordan sit out Vegas and still be the #1 seed in Lincoln. also can Helen sit out of challenge tournament at a different weight? (I can't see her going 53kg again unless it is for Tokyo, weights will probably be different by then anyways)
  11. Maybe because last year was so good. 1. Olympic year and Snyder becomes "youngest world champion in United States history" and then renounces redshirt to take on Gwiz 2. Nolf vs Imar rivalry...nothing this year comes close 3. St Louis is a good venue but.....Madison Square garden is on a whole other level. 4. doesn't mean it won't be as good or better than last year......just a lot less hype beforehand. 5. Wrestling is an individual sport, so matchups between stars is what it is all about. If the best thing you have to hang your hat on is the team race..then maybe something is missing.
  12. stream is actually pretty high quality 1080 p its 10:36 central time It would be nice if USA/Flo ran ppv on YouTube for Nationals and WTT. More exposure, better option for non-flo subscribers and better quality of stream. also Helen got stuck in a scramble and pinned last night.

    Odunayo vs Mattsson

    She has those John Fischer like doubles. If I remember correctly Danial Igali (her coach) had posted some social media that complained about the lack of training conditions and opportunities leading up to the Olympics. Not taking anything away from Sofia but that may have been a factor in her poor Rio performance. I would love to see her train and compete in the U.S., she has a tremendous amount of still untapped potential. If she ever seriously trained MMA and found a good gym here in the U.S. I could easily see her becoming a dominant world champion at 115 lbs.
