    I’m glad they wrestle the match; otherwise, KS has no chance.

    I would like to respectfully suggest that those interested in discussing paying or not paying for a subscription start a new thread, and keep this thread focused on the worlds junior championship.

    I love Cael Sanderson and what he's accomplished at PSU, but the PSU fans appear to be doing their level best to be heels. This post is bush league and I'm not even a Cornell fan.

    "Claims" being the key word. The Iranian wrestler didn't exactly paint himself in glory at the end of the match.

    Wow. Not cool. Hopefully nobody takes it too seriously, as Poulin is just 16, but that doesn’t make it ok  
    We do shake hands (it is more of a slap of hands) before matches, even at the lowest levels. 
    Might also be worth mentioning that he was popular when he was a little kid too and has always been aggressive and kind of mean on the mat.  
    He does have an excellent well respected coach now and i am sure he has told him to knock it off and may have even punished him. I’m not sure.

    Reminds me of Yoel Romero kissing a heavily concussed Luke Rockhold: I LUH YOU. 
    As to the thread, I knew this would be about Amouzad/Poulin before I even opened the thread lol. I would say #3. Even in boxing they have to touch gloves before they try to knock the other guy out.
    As to this case, Poulin touched at the start of each period and he didn't need to touch again after the timeout in my opinion. The media distorted this unfairly to Poulin as has been mentioned above. In fact, Amouzad didn't act so great himself after he already won the match lifted Poulin and threw him off the mat LOL. 
    In conclusion: they're young guys who will make little mistakes under pressure like everyone, and I don't see anything serious worthy of attention here.

    Yet they scored it one way live, then turned around and scored it completely differently while looking at the video (in which they are no longer in any better of a position to score it than anyone else that watched the video). So the argument that they were in the best position to score the match goes out the window. I would like USAWrestling (or UWW or anyone) to come out and tell us what the correct scoring of that scenario should be. Not doing so adds to why there is still so much confusion over how these situations should be scored.
    Are you really comparing a match in which one guy was winning when the match ended and then the refs changed the score and ruled the other guy the winner, to a match in which one guys sweats a lot? Ridiculous.
    Do you think Cael was making some sort of statement against litigating the outcome of wrestling matches by not taking the Taylor/Cox match to arbitration because J'den sweats (a lot)? Do you believe Koll would bring in lawyers if one of his guys has to wrestle a sweaty guy?

    What is bad for the sport is that no one in the RAC had any idea how or why the result was reversed; even the commentators were incredulous.  The decision seemed (and still seems) arbitrary and capricious.  That is bad for the sport.

    Anybody who wants to see a fair outcome wants it overruled - which is pretty much anyone who isn't a PSU homer.

    Certainly it would be much easier for Yianni to qualify, train and minimalize the chance of being injured by being a representative for Greece. The only thing that I could see stopping him is that he was part of several US junior teams wrestling internationally, so he would probably be loyal to USA wrestling. Given that he was completely jobbed by USA Wrestling, you'd have to wonder where his head is now. He certainly can't allow it to interfere with his Olympic hopes.

    In the US, they would have scored that move 4 for Zain with the takedown... and waited until after the match to do it.

    Awful to see this pathetic MMA tactic make it's way into other grappling disciplines.  Every person in the world just wants to latch their name onto someone more popular.  Sad.
    If he sincerely wanted to wrestle Kyle Snyder he'd just show up at a tournament Snyder was entered in.
