  1. Here’s the really funny part: The dumbasses that are crying about “participation trophies” are *THE SAME PEOPLE THAT STARTED GIVING PARTICIPATION TROPHIES* LMAO
  2. Yo, Irani, don’t listen to these dip****s. There’s nothing wrong with competition.
  3. I thought they made it clear they aren’t journalists, or was that just Willie Saylor’s take?
  4. I am still butt hurt about that match. I canceled right after, but hey, if everyone is now vouching for Flo then obviously I should reconsider. Also, I’m a big fan of Askren’s addition. I think he’s pretty insightful, his stories are pretty funny, and the malcontent in me finds it amusing when he gives Pyles a hard time!
  5. lol Now show us your handsome mug! I’m a big fan of this kid: did his own “Vision Quest” by cutting down to get a chance at Lee, *beat* Lee (injured or not, Lee put his foot on the line), and he’s freakin’ relentless. Pressure, pressure, pressure. Can’t quit, won’t quit. Did he act out? Yeah, but he was straight outta high school and onto a national stage. If there was video of me at my worst moments at 18 or 19, it would make this kid look angelic, lol Yeah, other kids have handled the spotlight better, but you got parents spearing kids in the back, so he’s not the worst ever. BTW, I wouldn’t tackle a kid, I’d have “have a word” with his dad.
  6. “Bad weather would not necessarily have prevented Bryant’s helicopter from flying, because it should have been equipped with instruments that allow pilots to fly in inclement conditions, experts said.” https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.latimes.com/california/story/2020-01-27/kobe-bryant-crash-and-helicopter-safety%3f_amp=true But, yeah, it looks like the weather definitely played a part. I guess he figured “I’ve done this a million times, no big deal,” just like Schultz probably figured “this dude is crazy, but it’s not like he’s gonna kill me or something.”
  7. Schultz knew he was living with a mentally unstable person. Bryant was just doing what he’d done for 20 years.
  8. I like your list, but who is your pick if you gotta choose between Ruth and Nickal?
  9. I did exactly that with Steiber and Russell at first but I wanted to slot guys where I thought they were at their best.
  10. I get where you’re coming from but I was sticking to guys who had completed their careers. Also, Spenser has won only(?) two titles, whereas McDonough was a three-time finalist. But I wouldn’t argue much against your picks, either.
  11. Saw something on this topic and figured it would be fun to throw out my picks and get you guys’ opinions, too Here’s my team: 125 - Matt McDonough 133 - Tony Ramos 141 - Logan Steiber 149 - Zain Retherford 157 - Jason Nolf 165 - Kyle Dake 174 - Chris Perry 184 - Ed Ruth 197 - J’Den Cox HWT - Kyle Snyder I wanted to slot guys in at weights where they were at their best, that’s why I put Stieber at 141 and Dake at 165. I know Ramos only won one title at 133 but he was a two-time finalist and didn’t feel like there were any better options. I guess an argument could be made that 133 seemed weaker, or that it was tougher and that’s why nobody repeated at that weight. Let’s hear some of your lists!
  12. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.washingtonpost.com/arts-entertainment/2019/02/20/i-believe-white-supremacy-john-waynes-notorious-playboy-interview-goes-viral-twitter/%3foutputType=amp https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/films/news/john-wayne-playboy-interview-1971-racist-homophobic-white-supremacy-a8788456.html%3famp https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.scmp.com/news/world/united-states-canada/article/2187025/i-believe-white-supremacy-john-waynes-notoriously https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.jacksonville.com/news/20170131/fact-check-did-john-wayne-express-racist-views-to-blacks-and-american-indians%3ftemplate=ampart Sorry I couldn’t find anything from Fox News on the subject, lol
  13. To be clear, you’re disputing the average age of troops in WWII, but you agree Wayne was a douchebag, right?
  14. What branch were you in? I was in the Marine Corps.
  15. I don’t think there’s enough money to be made in college wrestling for these kids to use PEDs. This isn’t like college football. Boosters and agents aren’t throwing money at them. I guess maybe a kid with a full scholarship can afford PEDs, but the risk/reward ratio seems pretty poor.
  16. You’re comparing this kid’s actions to those of Lee Harvey Oswald and John Wilkes Booth? You’re being ridiculous.
  17. There was a kid we called “Dirt Hill,” scored crazy high on the ASVAB, shoulda been a Navy nuke guy. Smart AF but too dumb to wash the back of his head. We always had to remind him, “just cuz you can’t see it don’t mean we can’t” We’d be at Applebee’s with a “genius” who still had cammie paint on the back of his head.
  18. I really like this kid. Goes on his own personal-but-highly-public Vision Quest his senior year, kicks ass at no-name Drexel, transfers to big, bad, Iowa and just continues to improve. Keep doing your thing, Kid.
  19. LOL Yeah, I didn’t think Snyder had a chance against Sadulaev either before Snyder switched camps. I still don’t think he’ll win, but I hope he’s more competitive if they wrestle again. What’s the feeling of the average Russian fan on the situation? Do you view PED use like the average American fan views it? Do you think the claims were exaggerated, or even false? Also, If your athletes still get to compete then the sanctions are toothless, right?
  20. Progressives don’t really say “stick to sports,” it seems to me to be the go-to line for conservatives. I think they say it because they’re dogmatic, they fear the conversation, it makes them anxious and that anxiety becomes anger.
  21. Let them go to school wherever the hell they please. Why exactly should they be penalized for going to a different school? Because that’s not how it was in the good ol’ days?
  22. I think Flo used to be great for wrestling and I still think they’re good, but I don’t visit the site anymore. I can’t see myself visiting again now that their rankings are behind the paywall. I just get the Big Ten To Go option for wrestling season and cancel after Big Tens. I really like their podcast, though! I had a Flo subscription but cancelled it after the PSU-OkSt debacle a few years ago. I still hear a lot of complaints about their streaming so I’m gonna hold off on trying it again until I hear a lot more positive feedback and they offer the month-to-month option again. I feel like most of us consumers aren’t big on being locked into contracts. That’s a big reason I won’t go back to cable. Amazon, Netflix, Hulu, etc. all have month-to-month options, so that’s what I use. Thats just my take.
  23. The guy is 28 years, and he’s a world champion wrestler with an Ivy League degree. I think I’ll give him a pass if he says something that sounds arrogant, because I said stuff that was way dumber than this when I was his age.
  24. What books have you written? I’m guessing I can find them on Amazon? Also, I think an NFL cornerback would make a fantastic wrestler.
