  1. I didn’t say we couldn’t I merely stated that is not what is done in other states. I actually like the idea of giving power to the board. It represents every corner of the state and there are some really great people on the board. Now will USA wrestling give its blessing for that type of configuration I don’t know but we can ask for it.
  2. No other USA state organization functions in this manner. I think the positions are clearly defined by the USA wrestling governing body. Not sure this is an option.
  3. It needs to be someone who has a few things. 1. Integrity and character. 2. Someone who wants the job and not someone being pushed into the job. 3. Has time available to do the job at a high level and not a half hearted effort. 4. The individual must have what is best for the kids and growing the sport as there first priority.
  4. Did I say something that wasn’t true? Was there not an option presented to them that made participation more affordable for everyone? How is that not the path we are choosing? How short sighted do you have to be to not understand that this is about control and power and nothing more. This has zero to do with what is right and in the best interest of the kids. That’s why I have a problem Mr. Anthony with the leadership of our USA wrestling organization. It doesn’t put the kids first and that is wrong in every single way imaginable.
  5. You know what is not in this survey? The common sense approach of making it affordable for everyone which has already been offered to the leadership. What an absolute joke.
  6. I can verify that it is true. You are absolutely right if the board allows for this not to happen they all need to go.
  7. Amazing that since this was posted that the silence from leadership speaks volumes.
  8. So why would they not announce it and how does that make any sense at all.
  9. Any coaches want to post there line ups?
  10. No coaches are in question now sir. They can wrap this in whatever reasoning they would like for everyone to believe but there are exactly zero trade secrets requiring an NDA within a wrestling board. The fact that they have sold it as necessary is unbelievable.
  11. Come on sir do you really think the coaches in question would put kids at risk. All are among the most respected in the state. Furthermore if it was witnessed as alleged then our leadership should have intervened immediately. None of which happened on either side I suspect as I was not there. Stop acting like our leadership takes the moral high ground. That is simply not the case which I have seen first hand on more than one occasion. No screen name necessary Purple Wrestler.

  12. That NDA came about cause they alleged something happened and there were exactly zero witnesses other than our leadership who has zero credibility. It got him and the other board members a nice letter from an attorney prior to this years meeting. If you don’t believe me just ask a board member. You can wrap it in a nice bow if you want too around protecting kids but that is just smoke.
  13. Let me do some research but I should be able to obtain that information pretty quickly.
