At Reno Worlds my kid got hit with a penalty point for an illegal blast double (the head in the middle, run through the other guy, Burroughs kind). My kid ran through the double pretty hard and flat backed his opponent, but he didn't pick up the other wrestler and slam him at all; he just ran down the double hard.

When I asked the ref about it later, he said that my kid "picked the other boy up [note] and slammed him without regard for his safety," and that the takedown was "essentially a football tackle." The "football tackle" part aptly describes the takedown, but that doesn't seem like a slam to me.

Does anyone have insight on this?

Iowa fans are still arrogant; it's just that their team isn't as good.
