  1. Bush league. Ya, they get to go home 5 minutes sooner. Totally disrespectful to fans and to the sport.
  2. Why did they move a finals match to mat 3 and run two finals at same time?
  3. Has Hall ever beat Valencia decisively in a match? I don't mean dominate, but clear winner.
  4. I'm a Badger fan and have never been able to predict a Graf match his whole career
  5. Frank Molinaro's hair looks like Mo in the three stooges. Doesn't anybody tell him?
  6. I'm disappointed, I think Mueller could give Gillman a better match. But maybe Cruz is bigger now?
  7. Gee, I wonder why Flo has removed all forums from their website
  8. Flo streaming sucks and they survive because they have near monopoly on content.
  9. Some are suggesting that BTS be moved to after the world championships. If Cox & Snyder are going to wrestle I doubt the risk of injury would be that much greater wrestling each other. But maybe it is a bad idea anyway - too much pressure, they won't find it fun.
  10. He joked about being slow and pudgy before the match. This was a charity exhibition. Have you ever watched an exhibition game of retired NBA players? It's hilarious, even though the guys aren't that old it still looks like a YMCA game. Askren went ahead and did this charity event even knowing that some people would claim that this event reflects on a wrestling career that ended a decade ago.
  11. We know for sure that Bo challenged Ben to a match on twitter a month ago. Ben said on his podcast he is too old and small to give Bo a match. Doesn't seem like Bo is too interested in going with Cox in an exhibition.
  12. I know this was just an exhibition, but I don't see the point of scheduling matches that are uncompetitive. I don't enjoy seeing Kyle Snyder or J''den Cox wrestler far inferior guys. Here's an idea: let Cox wrestle Snyder!
  13. Really crazy for freestyle where driving somebody out of bounds is part of the sport.
  14. Maybe this is stockholm syndrome since Flo essentially has a monopoly on wrestling coverage and I am captive, but I enjoy the whole crew.
  15. Man, this is a lot of matches. The intros wore me out.
  16. Man, the more you analyse it, the Olympics (as currently defined) really are an awful forum for the wrestling community to revere as the ultimate achievement. Maybe we should just think of the World Championships as the real Super Bowl, and Olympics as a marketing opportunity every four years. BTW, with only 6 weight classes, I'm not even willing to say that the six wrestlers are the best from a given country. One of the best could be a guy like Dake whose body doesn't fit well into a weight class.
  17. With Ben coming back to wrestle a world champ after being out of the sport for a decade, I keep thinking of George Foreman's endless middle-aged comebacks. It all worked out for George.
  18. This is a interesting but silly discussion. It's a lot like matching NFL Tight ends versus, say, a division II college basketball team. Ya, lots of those TEs are physically imposing and have basketball experience. But even a bad smaller college team will kill them in a game. MMA and wrestlers would get crushed competing in the other guys' trained sport. Here's an idea that might actually be fun & competitive: let MMA fighters and wrestlers compete in Judo.
