How was the officiating in Stillwater?

Recommended Posts

Honestly, I didn't think it was that bad.  I didn't see a greater number of bad calls than one typically sees in an international tournament.  I do think that some of the stateside refs are still struggling to call certain positions in the same manner of other international refs....grounding for one.  I was mainly paying attention to men's freestyle so I can't speak to other matches, but I don't believe the officiating truly impacted the outcomes of any matches.  Grumbling aside from JO's fan base, he was not robbed; he simply didn't do enough to win. 

If any call or non-call struck me as truly odd, it was JO literally running away from Retherford for the better part of a minute at the end of their 2nd match.  If that happened at Worlds, he would have been hit with cautions multiple times.
