    @madcat11 never a truer statement. Yes I have my team and yes I have favorite wrestlers, but I am through and through a fan of the sport and want nothing but the best for these guys...and gals.

    I'm scratching my head why grown men are aligning so tightly to their opinions and "their guys", and when a literal "legend" chooses to retire, half of the commentary is about how he was "less than", thus attempting to diminish the guy.  
    This constant breakdown of the individual in this sport is absolutely uncanny.  There's always something to nitpick and it's gotten beyond old.  This is yet ANOTHER reason why the popularity of the sport is a question mark, as there is a constant stream of this garbage.  I get it that football and other major sports have it, especially through the media, but it's a different equation when there are 300 million fans instead of 300,000 fans.  
    Let's just celebrate in this and subsequent few moments of this announcement, that Logan Stieber is a legend on the mat, and fits the bill of an all-around "good person".  He's an fantastic ambassador of the sport.  Let's just leave it at that and stop all the various forms of butthurt.

    Even as he retires, half of the wrestling community sticks to their guns, refusing to spell Stieber correctly.

    Props to My Mar and really all the Ohio State wrestlers. You never ever see them say anything that you wouldn't want your own guys to say. Humble bunch of guys that are going to do great things in life.

    Just so you know, and I posted this long before it actually transpired, but there was a rumor floating around that he was going to mff right where he mff. I called it a "bad rumor" because I was dismissive of it at the time, but then it actually happened. Crazy.

    If top man cannot score or put bottom in imminent danger, particularly if bottom is able to get to his feet repeatedly, the ref should have the discretion to put the wrestlers back in neutral with no point awarded.  That would be much better than the bogus stall calls we see on bottom or top and riding time would no longer be necessary.  We also need to call stalling when top is riding the hip with no interest in scoring.

    Flo is growing access to wrestling for people who are already fans.  
    Whether they are bringing in new fans is arguable.  I tend to say no....as they end up restricting access to matches that might otherwise be free to watch.

    Constructive criticism. Not complaining.
     
    Huh?
     
    Holy smokes. It's fine to put content behind paywall. It's understandable for Flo and for real journalism outlets to put content behind paywall. However Flo's model sucks.
    Flo has yearlong lock-in. Flo has history of godawful customer service. Flo has boorish personnel -- folks who resort to sarcasm or other defiance rather than just improving!
    You think those things work well to "grow the sport"?! Some of those things may well turn away diehards (not just casual fans). Flo can get more subscribers -- if only it would just make fewer mistakes.
    Flo personnel defend status quo, talk about red herrings such as The American Way (lol) and ESPN being nonfree and Flo churning out myriad "articles". Flo proponents talk about good content, good catalog. Flo detractors talk about reliability, professionalism, and pricing. Everyone's talking past one another.
    Flo may well be the best option right now. But still Flo can do much better!

    I think FLO is expensive but is the best value option for watching wrestling.
    But you can't give FLO credit for using someone else's stream and say they cover 99% of the teams, but then absolve them from issues originating in someone else's stream.  They either get credit and blame for what they broadcast or they don't.  They can't be credited for covering OSU through and OSU stream, but then simultaneously not responsible for the OSU stream.
