  1. 2019 will be known as the year of clustef*cks for USAW.
  2. Where in the rules does it allow for delays? I have no rooting interest in this.
  3. Injuries are part of the sport. If you get hurt, it should be next man (or woman) up. Dake is hurt, take the year, get healthy and let's see what Dieringer can do.
  4. As much time as they can afford. Cross cultural training whether them coming here or one of our athletes going there is always a good idea.
  5. Our local high school does that all the time, but the coach does that on purpose to shake up practice so they aren't getting stale practicing each other.
  6. Any timetable for arbitration? If today is only the hearing, I doubt a decision is made today.
  7. I have no dog in this fight and care very little who goes. I am more concerned with cleaning up the process. Zain/Diakomihalis has the potential to put the same stain as Lewis/Smith and Sieracki/Lindland. In fact it probably already has.
  8. Are we placing bets on the arbitration outcome?
  9. Wrestling is an individual sport with very loose team affiliations at the international level. Once you get can get over that whole team concept, things get easier to tolerate.
  10. "How strict do you think this is enforced? In 1992, John Smith wrestled with a staph infection and Kenny Monday subluxed his elbow in training camp. Think they should have "stepped aside".
  11. No one has any obligation to "step aside". If Zain has an injury but thinks he can make a go, I really do not care.
  12. Food for thought. Wrestling is a selfish sport with loosely aligned teams, especially at the international level. Why is it Yianni D's job to see that Zain R gets the most out a tune up tournament?
  13. Never paid for Flo, did I miss much?
  14. Ok real world example. Why do you think it is ok to lay hands on the kid just because he is being mouthy?
  15. If you are being an azzhole as adult, is it justifiable to hit you? If you tell your boss to piss off or go to hell, is it ok for him/her to lay hands on you? Why would it be ok to do that to a kid?
  16. You still don't fcking get it, do you? Yellow card the kid, pull him out of tournaments, suspend for the season... all are acceptable consequences. Putting hands on the kid is not. The days of rapping kids on the knuckles by sister Imabitch are over. This isn't the 1950's.
  17. Wrong. You don't get to put hands on a kid. Ever. No matter how mouthy he is. Especially if he isn't your kid
  18. Legit question, even though it belongs in the college forum. Will Gable Steveson return to UM in the fall?
  19. Again, it is their board and their rules. Discussions veer off topic all the time. We have multiple pages accusing Dake of cheating, revisionist history of the Smith/Lewis debacle, and a hillbilly roofer that is pissed about Wallace running off with his wife. Make any mention of a the red headed stepchild's tweets or a national team member's criminal accusation and the thread gets shut down. Seems to have double standards.
  20. Looks like PDIII is the other taboo topic.
