All the football networks bring in former high level referees because the guys announcing (most of whom played 10+ years in the NFL) don't know all the rules.

 

Heck, the refs they bring in STILL get it wrong often when they give a ruling on a review. 

 

Rules are obscure and change, big whoop if you don't have all the minutiae memorized.

Yes, but pointing out the fact that Freestyle as a whole has been overhauled repeatedly over the last 5 Olympic cycles is not a bash on freestyle wrestling. Its a fact.

Freestyle rules changes have not been minute details. The ENTIRE system or rules, scoring, and execution has been changed. AGAIN FACT, NOT A BASH ON FREESTYLE.

Soooo....a little bit of confusion in one particular sequence that you very rarely come across = he doesn't know the rules or fails to meet our expectations

Ok...makes sense.

It is always risky to use hyperbole or irony when posting on a message board.
 

Zinger!
 
I was joking in my title, he knows the rules pretty well. That specific rule is pretty obscure and rarely seen. One thing that was funny, he was perplexed when the coaches did not argue that the match was over. They clearly knew the rule. 
 
I imagine he will have a few Cowboys on the world team very soon.
