  1. I just accidentally purchased an extra lower bowel all-session ticket (infuriating story involving stub hub misrepresentation) in Section 106. Row G | Seat 4. I bought it for a little over $1600 with all fees. Willing to part with it for less than what I bought it for rather than deal with those snakes on Stubhub. It was more painless getting in to watch the 2007 Worlds in Baku where there no tickets were sold and I had to grease up a FILA Ref I met outside the arena. Please message me if you are interested. Thanks. 406 231 8618.

    Richard Perry accident

    Based on the loose details, it sounds like both the helmets and sticks could have been defectively designed and unreasonably dangerous. This horrific injury sounds like it should not have occurred during this type of activity. Hopefully the family explores the possibility of a product liability lawsuit against the manufacturers of the sticks and the helmet. If this injury is half as bad as it sounds, he and his family will need all the help they can get. Even if the sticks and helmets were not designed expressly for this purpose, it may be possible to hold the manufacturers responsible for failing to warn or failing to make their products safe for all foreseeable use. Fortunately this happened in California where there are still laws in place to protect consumers from defectively designed products. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Flo and BtS

    Japanese team is fairly hollowed out. No 57 kg Asia champ and no 61 kg Olympic silver medalist. Two likely wins for Japan. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Weekly Poll. Will JO beat Frank Chamizo?

    Chamizo should certainly win barring fluke. Much more strategic and creative and he is a superior athlete and wrestler. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Tanatarov In Top Form After Long Hiatus

    Agree it was sloppy at the end because he was exhausted. I expect he will be in better shape at Worlds. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Watch Tantarov work over Navruzov Ihtiyor (UZB) in the 2017 Gold Medal Asian Championship Match https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tNjg_UmmHX4 Akzhurek Tanatarov is an enigma. This guy had an incredible 2012 Olympics at 66Kg and was a frog's hair/alleged ear bite away from winning Gold. Then he disappears for 5 years (save for a one and done performance @ 2014 world championships). He then comes out of nowhere and turns in an epic Gold medal performance at the 2017 Asian Championships. This guy is so fun to watch. Can throw from anywhere. He appears to be an ethnic Kazahk born in Almaty. Anyone know where he was the last 5 years? I assume he has no connection to mother Russia or the caucuses? How did this guy develop his technical wrestling style in Almaty? It also appears that ethnic Uzbek Ihtiyor seem to know each other very well and have great respect for each other. I think they are two of the best non-import Stan wrestlers. Curious how these central asians manage to get so good outside the caucuses. I do not like James Green's chance against Tanatarov, or Ihtiyor.

    So, some thoughts on Freestyle Rules

    It's sad to see so much blasting of UWW on this forum when the real criticism should be leveled at the NCAA who have rendered college wrestling unwatchable. UWW and Nenad Lalovic deserve a lot of credit for making freestyle more exciting than ever before, though the rules could still benefit from a few changes. 1) Cautions as criteria- This needs to get scrapped fast. Offensive scores should always trump passivity warnings. 2) 30 Shot clock timer- The "action extension" to the shot clock is an excellent addition which creates more flurries and scoring opportunities. If you don't want the shot clock extended don't let your opponent penetrate your defenses. Often times it is the person who is not on the shot clock who benefits from this rule as well. Bottom line, UWW wants to encourage action and this modification certainly promotes this objective. 3) Repechage- I agree on the semi-final extension but I bet UWW has IOC-imposed limitations on the number of matches, etc.
