Evergreen: rule changes wanted

Recommended Posts

You aren't a wrestling fan if you aren't sure you know how to fix some things. 
Here are my pet peeves.

1)  Made the takedowns 3 points.  No brainer.  Escapes are too relatively easy.

2)  Make back points 2, 3, 4  according seconds of exposure.  The problem now is refs
      aren't making an effort to count.  They hand out 4-points any time a guy is exposed
       for longer than 2 counts.  Back point inflation has turned the sport into a cheap-tilt contest.

3)  The rules for stalling on the edge of the mat remain a hot mess.  Worse than ever.
      Got to come up with something/anything consistent.   Maybe just adopt the FS
      pushout rule and see if it works in folkstyle context.  What's the worst that can
      happen?  Dogs sleeping with cats?

1. i like the 3 points.  ask lugo and sasso about part two

2. meh

3.no on pushout. we have hwts, we dont need to make the rest of it sumo. but i agree on the lack of consistency between officials ...that could be addressed.

Bold prediction: Dean Heil was responsible for the danger rule and Spencer Lee’s dominance will be responsible for the elimination of the 4 point near fall. 

First point, yes. Second point, hopefully, though I imagine Lee would have minimal issue getting an additional turn if needed more often than not

Freestyle doesn't seem sumo to me.  But it does change the wrestling a lot, true.
Guys constantly playing games with the edge of the mat now is worse.   Wrestlers
who want to stall-out the match just hang out there.

I've liked the danger rule change.
