    Noodler reacted to GreatWhiteNorth in Ben Askren to box YouTube celeb in March   
    I can't decide which part of this disaster is the worst - the matches, the music, or the alcohol/drug fueled commentators. Downfall of our society going on right here.
    Pete Davidson doing commentary on the slap fight earlier was probably the best part of this nightmare.
    ... OK, no Pete talking to Askren is now the only decent part.

    I think FLO is much worse now than when I started. I couldn't believe the clowns they assembled for their half-ass "NCAA watch party". Not many interesting articles, and definitely not enough actual wrestling. At least on FLO Arena you can see a lot of matches after the fact. I'll probably cancel FLO sometime soon. 
    If Intermat is under new management I might give them a try, but every time I go to that site it seems like nearly all of it's behind a paywall.

    word currently circulating is that Ethan Smith will be 174 and Romero 84
    57 - Paddy
    65 - Kharchla
    74 - Ethan Smith
    84 - Romero
    not carved in stone but that's the plan as of now.

    Kyle Dake is the best P4P wrestler in the world.

    He "beat" Dake despite Dake getting two push outs to one and Dake being put on the clock three times while JB had his hand in Dake's face all match. And regardless it was an extremely close match with Dake outwrestling JB. More to the point, nothing could justify a same day challenge tournament before the finals best of three no matter what occurred at the US Open. 
    The system "worked" only in the sense that it protected the incumbent from a bona fide challenge and made very clear exactly who the powers that be wanted to win. The very first time it is a square match, JB lost in two straight. And does JB win in 2017 without the same day challenge tournament? Not based on what I saw. 
     Anyway, Dake is going to the Olympics.

    Noodler reacted to CJE64 in Sorry...but NBC’s coverage was awful   
    i hope no one ever brings up usa wrestlings inability to garner an audience again.  The NBC coverage was a disgrace to any fan of MFS...aka the core of all wrestling in this country.  What successful sport forces their customer base to use 3 devices to watch key aspects of their biggest competition.  In no particular order:
    1 NBC had no scrolling info on upcoming matches or results on other mats
    2 There were 3 semi finals of this communities favorite wrestlers on simultaneously...yianni, dake and nolf
    3 Matches were highlighted that the people in the arena werent even watching
    4 Well known announcers couldnt explain basic stuff....possibly because they had no monitors on which to actually see what we were seeing
    and many many more completely unexplainable foolish outrages
    I get it, they want to expand viewership of the talented folks in wfs and greco...guess what? that is not what 90% of your viewer audience wants to see.  It was paricularly annoying that they did a split screen for 30 seconds during a review...once in two days coverage.  If you want to grow the audience, this is not how to do it.  NBC Sports grade? F

    So happy for Dake.
    I have always said that JB was a great wrestler/champion, but the qualifying system we had was a joke. Since 2013 they have been thisclose but going through the challenge tournament and then immediately wrestling the finals was insane. And it signaled very clear favoritism that was reflected in the calls. All any Dake fan was asking for was a fair shot. Even so, beating JB was no gimme. When you lose to a guy that often, even with a stacked deck, it gets in your head. And JB was pulling out the stops. But it is amazing what a wrestler can do without dead legs from a same day challenge tournament.
    Anyway Dake is Olympics bound and JB has already been to the mountain top.

    Sad to see the run end for JB, but glad to see Dake get his turn.  It's been a long time coming.  And both responding well, JB reflective and honest, Dake showing respect to the man he has finally surpassed.
    Good day for wrestling.
