You are using a final desperation attempt to help prove that Greco is not boring. I think you are instead solidifying the case that it is.

Oh because that was so  boring. Look- I don't care about what you think, I just want wrestling to be more popular globally.

Remember when wrestling was almost NOT an olympic sport? Grow up and embrace the fact that Greco is a massive part of wrestling

perhaps not here in the US but in all other serious wrestling powerhouse nations.

Look , don't watch, don't do Greco if you hate it so much.

No wonder we fail at greco, we just want flashy, monkey dancing.

Greco is where real men wrestle. Takes balls and strength to do greco. 

I did FS, I love it, I had no choice, no greco at college. I respect FS. 

I wonder where this vehement ,deeply ingrained -very curious odium towards greco stems from

 

I think it's from the lightweight freestyle crowd

There isn't enough exposure to it and as a whole, the US sucks at it.  Freestyle is more similar to folkstyle, so that helps with freestyle popularity.  Greco is almost like trying to learn a foreign language.

Are you saying our successful Greco athletes got that way by dancing like monkeys? Were you born in 1934?

So wait… we’re using a 3 second clip… of a non Greco move, to prove that Greco is entertaining? Did that move even score points? 
 

Greco is fun when one guy is completely outclassed and can get tossed around, but when it’s two world level guys it isn’t worth it. 
 

“oooh! Look how he side stepped, turned his hip, and fought pressure to avoid getting out of position and maybe giving up a point! Sure would love to see that hand fighting that results in zero points! Beautiful!”
