  1. That 57 lb bracket was tough. I remember picking Gillespie to win it and JB smoked him.
  2. Kaleb Young has had some great wins, with plenty of headscratching losses.
  3. Still plenty of matches against tough guys. Generally, I feel good about a true freshman who can get to the legs like Ayala does. By the end of the year, he could jump a couple levels.
  4. Nah, hes not even a good troll. The best way to make Tbar look stupid is to allow him to keep talking.
  5. Oh, you are saying they were just never good enough. Well, then that just means that Brands make good decisions for their athletes and can develop talent. Hahaha thats a real zinger tho Tbar! Hahaha
  6. Soooo, youre too dumb to realize that the Brands have had very few true-freshmen go? Why do you need the obvious explained to you all the time?
  7. Hes talented, but a little undersized and he has work to do on bottom. He could beat anyone out of the top 3 guys, but he could lose to anyone if some of those freshman weaknesses are exposed. I love the kid, but feel like he is a fringe AA threat unless he really turns it on this next month.
  8. Just because someone disagrees with you, doesnt mean they are upset no matter how many times you repeat it. Believe it or not @Lurker, this is me relaxing.
  9. Which, I understand, but Dan stated he was told to shut this down and when he reached out he has heard nothing. I am not saying he needs to just be a free pass, but it seems like he is willing to play ball. UWW cant even bother to get back to him.
  10. Enough that their actions should be beyond question? Because thats what you are hounding me about. Why are you defending UWW so hard here? They have zero to gain by restricting Dan Sweeny. Im fine. I can have a discusion about things without getting emotionally involved. Try to do the same instead of turning every post into an insult. Sad if you are a grown ass adult. And please, show me this technique content UWW has been putting out. I have not seen anything.
  11. Which is exactly why UWW shouldnt be wasting time axing things like Dan Sweeney's videos.
  12. No, but why make it harder, especially when Dan's not competing with them in any way?
  13. Do you think UWW has helped increase the visibility of wrestling? Thats what we are talking about here, isnt it? If I go out and ask people in town their thoughts on wrestling, 99% wouldnt know a single thing and I live in Iowa. Wrestling may be more palatable for you since UWW took over, but most people still dont have a clue whats going on. Get off the forum every now and then and get a clue. People dont give a **** about wrestling and we still need all the publicity we can get. PS. If you could rely on the merits of your arguement, you wouldnt need to say **** like this: "You’re not very good at this. Enjoy the new year. Relax and have some champagne."
  14. Wrestling almost got removed from the Olympics because its so unpopular. You're totally right though. UWW is right to throw its weight around. We get it. This is an option for UWW. Is there anything else you wanted to add or just state the obvious?
  15. Not a lot of value in those assets if no one cares or even understands the sport.
  16. Ok, but thats the whole discussion. Being proactive is shortsighted. Your whole point about a slippery slope ignores that.
  17. ...and at that point they can act. Its not something you opt out of and have to live with forever.
  18. Im just sick of these wrestlers bitching. Get the vaccine or dont, but they are not victims. I turned on FRL the other morning and hear DT and KD whining about vaccines. Jesus, get over it. I honestly dont even know what Kyle Dakes personality would look like if he isnt crying about something.
  19. If you cant see why people are defending him, then you are blind. Its not illegal in the sense that he will be arrested. UWW has a choice to allow it or not allow it and some entities in other sports do. Do you not understand why people feel UWW should allow this?
  20. We should be able have a discussion about what UWW should and shouldnt do. No one is impressed by you dropping in to remind us of the law that we already know about.
  21. No, it has a cost, but whats the difference between that and say advertisement?
  22. Obviously, that needs to be considered, but without looking at their books, we dont know. To you, is it even worth considering the opportunity costs?
  23. But it does mean they provide a service. I imagine promote the sport of wrestling is written in their bylaws and this appears to contradict that.
  24. Well in this case, its just stupid to restrict access. Im guessing they feel a contractual obligation because of the deal with flo?
