Stalling calls tonight

Recommended Posts

Are you kidding about 125! That was amazing wrestling by both guys. If you are going to call either of them for stalling once then you should be DQ'ing the other 9 weights! 125 is what is always griped about that doesn't in wrestling. Regardless of who you wanted to win that was amazing wrestling.

Delgado spent most of the third period running! Diving towards the legs after the ref has blown his whistle does not constitute offense. In addition, at least two of his funk attempts were just grabbing an ankle, not actual attempts to score. Delgado only took 1-2 true shots during the match (one of which he scored).

Gotta disagree there. The Garrett call was when Garrett had spend significant time just holding on to Delgado and not doing anything other than trying to not give up an escape. And Delgado got called when he was just backing away and preventing Garrett from being able to set up his offense.

 

That's how stalling should be called, not waiting until the last second.

I was pulling for Garett, but I didn't think Delgado warranted any more stalling calls then received. Was he wrestling defensively, sure, but he was taking shots and counter shots, i don't know where you would have called him again for stalling.

Does running off the mat with 4 seconds remaining warrant a stalling call? If so , it would have forced SV.

I'm biased, but I thought it didn't. How can you let a wrestler literally run away like that and not call stalling?

I don't live in the USA, so I wasn't able to see any of the coverage, but I saw this match on youtube. There's no horse in the race for me, but I saw it the same way as Dragons_coach. Delgado took 2 meaningful shots and spent the entire 3rd period running as well as much of the rest of the match. Garrett needs to be able to finish his shots, but Delgado ran for most of the match.

True, but that doesn't change that when Garrett was called for stalling he had been spending a large amount of time making no attempt to do anything other than avoid giving up an escape point.

 

Which is why I liked how it was being called so much on Saturday night. It was being given for specific things wrestlers were doing rather than as a consolation prize in the last few seconds.

Delgado did what every wrestler does who is protecting a lead with just a few seconds remaining. Do we call stalling on every one of those guys?

Speaking of stalling calls in the finals, has anyone gone back and watched the Tsirtsis - Kindig match? I don't recall Tsirtsis taking one shot until the OT. I know Kindig wasn't an offensive machine either, but he seemingly was occasionally taking a shot. No stalling was called either way. Anyone that watched a replay have a comment?
