    I hear what you're saying, but I would say....why do they have to?  It is on them to run their business.  It is not on them to explain to and educate the public on how they are running a business.  Nor do I believe doing so would have any impact whatsoever on what people will or won't write about them.  I think if we know anything about today's society, it is that a large group of people will find anything to bitch about.  We have no entitlement whatsoever about how they run their business.  We are certainly entitled to our opinion about it, but they don't need to explain anything to anybody.  You want to change their policies and modes of operation.....don't subscribe.  But constant verbiage on a message board?  Positive or negative, they will take it all day long.

    Easy there, Smalls. About 35,000-40,000 people per year die in car accidents in the US.

    I would of course prefer an appropriate response. My point is that you have already justified the decision either way, whether or not it was actually necessary. 
     
    To date 32 people have died from Corona. 42,000 people die from car crashes every year. Would you support an over reaction like removing all cars from the roads immediately to prevent 42,000 deaths?

    An over reaction to this threat leading to economic destruction and misery could kill way more people (lots of small businesses, credit lines, jobs at risk).  Question is, what’s the right balance.
    And to the point above, I was wondering who is footing the bill for the venue and whether they will try to move to smaller venue.  Likely too late to shift something so big.
    This is going to be weird, but I guess much like many UWW events ... big matches, empty house.

    And if it is an over reaction and these measures weren't actually needed, most will still be claiming that it only didn't get big because measures like this were taken.

    Mr. Smalls, Let me start by saying I completely screwed up my post on this topic and have been flip flopping like Joe Biden, lol. Let me explain and hopefully get back in your good graces.
    At first I thought he should be banned w/o reading any of the posts. Then I saw one of Tobus posts and changed my mind a little w/o reading further. You would have thought I learned my lesson but evidently not. Then when I saw who the bet would have benefited I change my mind somewhat again. Hopefully I explained that well.
    Here is my opinion on the subject. While I think what he did is despicable, low class, and would probably not have anything to do with him if I knew him, I don't necessarily believe that banning him is the right option at this time. Lots of people make mistakes and deserve either a chance to fix them or a second chance. There are things we can do on this message board to punish him and maybe we should let the moderator know like Jason said. But, please understand that in no way am I condoning what he did, would I ever put up with one minute of that from my kid even though he's now in college and I do not wish to be associated w/ him or anybody who thinks what he did is okay. I just think there maybe  other ways to handle it at the present time. But I could be wrong and that might be the best option. If he was banned I would not lose one minute of sleep over it  and would probably save time not having to read through idiotic posts of his.
    I hope this helps. Any issues or problems anyone has with my posts here are all brought on by me. Your post did make me sit up because I have made my share of mistakes but I KNOW I raised my kid correctly & to be honorable. Again, sorey for the confusion.
    And by the way, I think Marcus C. is an outstanding poster as well

    Ahhh I had a feeling the cost would be where we eventually would end up... Fortunately for the general population you aren’t managing our finances and deeming what is and is not a good investment.
     
    Everything you just mentioned is self contained in the camp itself and when you consider the hours put in in that month of wrestling, and variety of quality partners to wrestle with, the exposure time can outweigh the number of wrestling opportunities in a given summer break in a community. 
     
    For whatever reason, you’re just coming across as sour grapes or just want to argue about the merits of not attending one specific wrestling camp which is really head scratching. Maybe you wanted to go when you were younger and either couldn’t based on the finances or for some other reason which is completely understandable. I just don’t know what you are trying to accomplish by denigrating others for participating in an intensive wrestling camp...

    So your main gripe with the camp is that because it pushes you to your limit it is not a good way to train? I’m not sure what your understanding of the camp is especially since you never participated in it but the majority of the day you are wrestling and there is/was a cross training session once maybe twice a day. The camp helps kids to learn the level to which they can train and push themselves to take a jump to the next level just as Bigtenfanboy mentioned. 
     
    When there isn’t someone such as yourself nearby with your extensive wrestling and training knowledge to devote that amount of time every day to high school athletes a camp can be a great option. I also strongly disagree with you that at some point in an athletes training they need to be pushed to and past their limit to achieve growth.

    I’m sure if we spent a couple minutes talking to one another there would be plenty I don’t understand about you Russelscout...
    That being said, I didn’t come from a powerhouse high school or have a club that was very great nearby that could teach me the level of work ethic it took to be successful so the camp was a great option for me and because of its duration and full immersion in a high intensity environment, it was like getting another season of experience in a month. Additionally, it was overall a phenomenal experience that taught more than wrestling skills that I still look back on.
