    The fact that you take people's position of "of course I'd rather see him do another cycle, but its his life and his goals, more power to him" and translating it in your own mind as people are cheering for him to leave, pushing him out the door,  shows that you are taking this very emotionally.  When you take a reality, and turn it into your own different version of reality, more often than not emotions are heavily at play.....  but you are adorable in doing so.

    Yeah, I figured you’d ignore my question because you can’t answer it. Enjoy your fake virtue signaling about Gable’s life choices. Maybe one day people will care enough about you to post on a message board criticizing your life decisions!

    If another mans personal decision on how to live his life and what he wants to pursue (legally of course) affects you this much, it may be time to examine if you’re happy with your own life. Obviously it’s never fun to see a guy as good as Gable walk away from the sport. Maybe you didn’t accomplish everything you hoped for in your own wrestling career and now you live vicariously through other athletes? Your post is really bizarre and a way too emotional over analysis.

    I am about right there with your thinking.
    Personally I would have preferred he honored his commitment to Minnesota, as a fan of Collegiate Wrestling.
    As a person and a fan of his, I will root for him no matter his path.
    I say the same sort of thing for PD3.  I want him to succeed at MMA.  Once the dust settles I am a fan of wrestlers even when they are no longer wrestling.  I do wish he wasn't such a dipstick on the social medias... Alas c'est la vie.

    The mental gymnastics here are astounding. Which is pretty par for the course for your posts so I’m not surprised. I’m not a part of the ballet community so I won’t speak for them. But I’d tell them the same thing I’ll say here. After 5 minutes of naturally being disappointed, Who. The. Hell. Cares? It’s Gable’s life to live as he sees fit. What if he stuck with wrestling and in one year he blew out every ligament in his knee and then never came back the same? Is it going to be your satisfaction that he kept wrestling that pays the bills for the rest of his life?

    Oh boo hoo. The "respect" argument being tossed out by the professional wrestling haters here and on the Facebook groups is strong and full of vitriol for no quantifiable reason. It's like to be respected in wrestling, you have to coach, be poor, only win medals and only stay in the sport and work at Dick's or Home Depot to supplement training. 
    The ignorance of the "business" of professional wrestling/sports entertainment in this thread and the Facebook groups is also next level. We celebrate people being wrestlers in all walks of life - but there's this get off my lawn crowd who has some issue with the WWE et al using the word wrestling. You know who isn't complaining about us using the world wrestling? Professional wrestling fans. I don't watch it nearly as much as I did growing up, but I follow OUR people and if that's the career path they chose, guess what, their "amateur" accolades get mentioned pretty much every time they're on TV. 
    Millions of viewers will hear about Jacob Kasper's college accolades as Julius Creed, same with Gable's gold. Just like they did with Kurt Angle. You know who hasn't put wrestling infront of millions of eyes each week for the last couple decades? Our wrestling. 
    Gable (and everyone else who went the pro wrestling route) doesn't care about anyone's respect except those in their circle of trust. That definitely doesn't mean, you, me or any other blowhard on the web who wants to take a dump on other people's life choices and how they use their talents to make a living. 
    Boo freaking hoo.

    Centers are usually pretty short compared to other linemen, but it’s one of the hardest offensive line positions to play. You have to know every assignment for the entire line, help the QB call out blitz packages, and really know the playbook just as well as the quarterback.

    That fork may be winding down to a decision. UFC made a post congratulating Gable on his gold medal and now Gable is teasing interaction with Vince McMahon. I would love to have a behind the scenes look at what’s happening in Gable’s life right now lol.

    This is important to remember. Snyder has taken some freestyle loses here and there. But the guy has an Olympic gold and Olympic silver medal to his name. There’s not a long list of Americans that can claim the same thing. He may never beat Sad again because Sad is once in a lifetime level good, but Snyder has had a hell of an international career.

    Obviously there can be some tweaks snd clarifications, but the product being put out is amazing. 
      
    The matches were extremely exciting. The fact that so many came down to the last 30 seconds makes it extremely exciting. In most matches the better wrestler won too, which is important. 
      
    Not only did we get to see a ton of exciting close matches that were decided last second (Uguev 3 times, Gable, DT, etc), even the Snyder match was super exciting. Being down 6-0 in the last minute, we all still knew Snyder had a good shot at winning. 
      
    Good job UWW.

    goheels1812 reacted to Crotalus in The upside case for Snyder   
    There's definitely some positive takeaways. Snyder's style in these big matches is to wear his opponent down and score at the end of the match. He got the style of match he wanted, he just made mistakes on those low singles and gave up the chest wraps to put him in too big of a hole. Sad did not score a takedown on him and was clearly fading at the end (though Snyder was too).
     
    Snyder is definitely a notch below Sadulaev, but he's the best wrestler in the planet, so I don't understand the criticism. Snyder has done nothing but bring home hardware on the international stage and unless Cox steps up, he'll get more shots at Sad.

    goheels1812 reacted to BigTimeFan in The Champ is Saduleav   
    Sadualaev has the potential to be at the very top of the position of greats. Let’s do the math. 

    2014 world champ 
    2015 world champ 
    2016 Olympic gold. 
    2017 world silver 
    2018 world gold
    2019 world gold 
    2020 Olympic gold 
    He is already a six time world/Olympic gold medalist and one Silver. There’s a list of all time medal winners. There’s been one ten timer (Medved), one nine timer (Satiev), three eight timers (Belaglazov, Fadzaev and Jordanov), one seven timer (Khadartsev) and there are seven six timers (including Sadulaev and Smith). 

    Keep the following in mind as you read the fun facts below. Sadulaev just won his sixth world/Olympic title. He turned 25 May 9th of this year. He won his first world tittle in 2014 at the age of 18. 

    Some fun facts:
    First off none very few six+ timers were flawless. Almost all of them wrestlers in more championships than they won. Even Smith who went six for six lost a match.

    Medved competed in 12 world / Olympic championships and came away with ten golds, one silver and one bronze. He competed in three weight classes, and won seven golds at 97kg and three at 100kg+. Technically he won gold at three weight classes but that’s because some years he won at 97kg+ vs others at 100kg+ weights.
    Medved was born in 1937 and won his last gold in 1972 at the age of 35. He won his first gold in 1962 at the age of 25.  

    Satiev won an astounding three Olympic golds and competed in four. He won his last gold in 2005 at the age of thirty. He won his first in 1995 at the age of twenty (all ages are approximate!). 
    Fadzaev was born in 1962 and won his last gold in 1992 at the age of 30. 
    Satiev and Fadzaev were both stopped by an American in an Olympics (Satiev losing to Slay and Fadzaev to Monday). Khadartsev won his last gold medal in Atlanta in 1992 after which the USSR team became the Russia team. Rumor has it that post that Maharbek, without the benefit of all kinds of supplements and other goodies, was no longer made of cast iron and superhuman strength. Nevertheless he won four more world medals, three silvers and a bronze. 

    Two other things: Belaglazo and Fadzaev won world titles before and after 1984 so arguably missed a gold due to the Russian boycott of 1984. 

    If Sadulaev continues wrestling and winning till he’s thirty he’s on track to eclipse Medved and become the first 11 or even 12 timer. He could even lose or skip one and get there. I don’t see an immediate threat. We can hope that J’Den could get there but I’m not so sure. 
     
    EDIT: changed Medved last win to 1972 at age of 35.

    Welcome to the dumbest thread from the Olympics. Snyder has won a gold and a silver medal in the last 2 Olympic Games. He lost a 6-3 tough match to a guy who is 138-2 in his international career and hasn’t surrendered a point in the Olympics. Sads last loss was 4 years ago. But the armchair quarterbacks tell me Snyder hasn’t improved, Cael can’t coach, and Snyder is lucky he even won a silver. What a joke.

    What you’re saying is assuming Sad hasn’t improved in the course of 4 years. I’m not saying Snyder is above criticism, no one is. But this board has lost its mind on this topic. Snyder went into intermission down 2-0 (shot clock and step out). He came out of intermission and got in on 2 deep shots. Sadulaev is probably the strongest pound for pound wrestler in the world and hoisted Snyder completely air-born within seconds of his shot. I know John Smith was calling for Snyder to lift Sad, but I really don’t know how it was physically possible. Sad had Snyder air-born within milliseconds of Snyder getting in deep. I really don’t think Snyder wrestled poorly. He just ran into an unbeatable meat grinder. I put Snyder’s chances at maybe 5-10% going into the match and I think he performed about as well as we could’ve hoped for. I mean he’s the only guy who scored on Sad in the Olympics so that obviously says something.

    Okay oh wise one. Tell me, how do you beat Sadulaev? The man who is as close to unbeatable as we’ve seen in this generation of wrestling. What’s the secret formula that no one can figure out that only you know? You think Cael can’t watch tape and see things that you can’t? It’s damn hard to do. Hence why no one has done it in 4 years and why Sad has only lost 2 senior level matches in his life.
