What you or I say as fans has virtually no impact.

DT is representing USA wrestling. They should outwardly show support for each other.

Completely different scenarios

You're assuming that these athletes don't follow message boards and we all know that's not the case.

Did he win the second bronze or the first?

I'm assuming its been said, but in addition to being in poor taste, Taylors tweet was completely off base. Cox wrestled his style and stuck to it, he's not great in a deficit. 

 

I hope taylor takes the time to compliment Gilman's late match efforts.

DT still feeling the sting of the WTT match and was wearing his heart on his sleeve a little much in the tweet. Legit comment maybe. One several people felt and said sure. One anothet top USA wrestler needed posted on twitter for the world to comment on probably not. But trying to live through Cox and knowing he could have been there in that position likely causes a little more surly tweet than if the background would have been different.

Apparently DT has been whining about the WTT matches when he is a clinician at camps too. doesn't seem like he's doing a very good job of moving on.

He could follow Hillary's lead and write a book titled "What Happened."

He only said what we were ALL thinking.

 

Truthfully, I didn't think that at all.

Did you watch the match live?  It was absolutely brutal. I really hope the performance was due to some combination of: Injuries impacting his preparation, having his mind on football instead of training, and having gone through a brutal folkstyle season/being burned out.  I hope Taylor's tweet lit a fire in him though..Would love to see him get some experience at some top world tournaments this upcoming year.

I did not, but these guys don't make it to the semis without a combination of a lot of skill and a good amount of luck. For most guys, it's a toss. Haven't we already learned this with wrestling over and over and over again?

With the way the brackets are drawn, the best wrestlers don't always make the semis.  Taylor's comment was in poor taste, but it was 100% accurate. That draw was a gift, and he had no business losing to that guy in the semis. Cox wasn't the same wrestler as he was last year in the semis match...Rio Cox wins comfortably (obviously a close score, but in control the entire time).  He also almost got teched in his quarters match to the Campbell wrestler from Finland before outclassing him.

Fine line between whining about it and giving his view on it when asked a question. I don't see him going out of his way to make sure everyone hears his sob story, but if asked I'm sure he's not going to sugar coat his view on it.

(Ok - my nephews are trying to teach me the correct way to use that - I have no clue if I did it right)

He went out of his way to say something today, and you don't have to be freud to know his motivation.

That actually sounds troubling.

Taylors comment ranks right up there with Dake's "what an idiot".
Maybe a self fullfilling prophecy by Taylor when implying zaddick may of wanted cox instead of him.. Jden certainly a better team mate.

Has he retracted any of his tweet?
MAGA!

Hey I somehow missed the Dake comment. Could you expound on the context? Thanks in advance.
