Greco Worlds Thread ;)

Hancock wasn't doing anything less than the Hungarian was and he got hit, basically the ref gave him the opportunity to win in par terre. And unfortunately he did.

I saw similar leads protected by more aggressive positioning yesterday. I don't think it was a terrible call. Still discouraging.

...because when a leading wrestler stops wrestling he can be defeated?

Nobody can score on their own, 3 forced par terre positions is a joke. Why not just alternate par terre every 30 seconds with each wrestler getting an equal opportunity. Hancock wasn’t running, he was engaging.

I see your point on forced parterre. 

Hancock wasn't pulling an Otorguro, but I see why his action was called passive.

i was only half watching hancock while in a meeting, but, my initial feeling while the second period was going down is hancock is doing the same thing again... get a bit comfortable and then shut down too much...

disappointed schultz not pulled back in...

and...

as always...

i appreciate the anti greco from the same members of the peanut gallery that offer nothing else...

good for profiling purposes...

So how are we feeling about Hancock's bronze prospects? 
50/50 or better?

Unfortunately I had plenty of ample time at the beginning of the week and have been busy as hell when Greco started. Murphy’s law I guess. Will be catching up with it over the weekend and see what all the buzz is about. I’ve seen a lot of comments here and other social media that are this rule needs to be changed or that rule needs to be changed, where the real answer is typically…..we just need to get better.

Means a lot coming from the next American greco “superstar”

in this particular instance, he is just a goofy kid laughing at yet another horrible take by someone who does not understand much of anything...

keep living your best life...

**two thumbs up**

yep...

nothing wrong with greco at all...

been plenty of action...

big throws...

several super slick positions that will necessitate multiple replays...

the couple of slight rule changes introduced this year have added and not taken away...

and yes...

the US really just needs to get better...

nothing more...
