Why so snarky? You're clearly upset.  If it bothers you that much leave the sport. 

Kids are not softer, the sport is still tough. 

It seems like it's one again,  it's the adults that are upset about things more than the kids are.  

genie's out of the bottle and I don't spend the time I used to anyways with the sport, especially since the son didn't want to wrestle and stuck to soccer. Oh and by the way, since the sport has supposedly grown because of the more divisions, please let me know how many wrestlers there are now compared to say 10, 15, 20 years ago, I mean that is the main argument for it but no numbers have ever been produced.

Also since this is to grow wrestling, since we have 3 divisions if we really want to grow wrestling I think maybe we should have 25 weight classes, that way everyone can fit in. Start at 100 and have a weight class every 5lbs until we get to 200. Go 210, 230, 260 and unlimited. I mean when I was in high school we had a kid that came to practice every single day, worked just as hard as everyone else, but could never get down to 275 and I'm not sure he ever got to even wrestle a match. He wanted to be part of the team and he wanted to lose weight and also be with his friends and that was what pushed him to continue, but I don't think he ever got a match in and his only wrestling was during practice, but he had the drive to participate and maybe an unlimited class would really help bring in some of the football players that use to wrestle but cannot anymore because college football programs are wanting their OL and DT to be 300 plus.

    • Does the lack of ref's stem from low wages? because TN is one of the lowest paying states when it comes to contest officials. I have heard some say due to fans and GA's not keeping the gym in order, but fans have been barking for years it hasn't just become a thing.  Middle school may should maybe consider moving contest to Monday or Wednesdays across the state and slot High school contest on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, or Saturday there has to be away to help with the cancelations.    I did know that officials have to pay all fees which is a joke in itself. The summer camps they work only count for meetings and no training is really offered to them. I have seen the way Alabama high school association is ran far as the ref's side of things and it is a well-constructed model, and they offer them trainings and meetings all summer and fall ( TSSAA should take note)    I remember at the State Tournament last year there was 30+ fouls and in the boys' games a kid received a tech for dunking and hanging on when players were underneath him. I would think in games of that magnitude you should send the absolute best officials across the state not just picking from associations.  This needs to be looked into to help solve the issues
    • Naw I haven’t watched any but heard a lot about them by players and coaches. Sounds like they are a very talented team. I feel like we have did well against a lot of good running teams but yes Groves is a different animal.    offensively I think we can move the ball either running or passing. Pretty balanced offense. I do like the experience we have but still think the Indians will b ready. Should b a good game 
    • On mynet. Which is channel 226 on Comcast. 
    • What’s your thoughts on this match up ? Have you been able to watch any of East Robertson games ? 
    • He is the first one that popped in to my mind. He definitely could have ran a spread offense. I don’t remember if he had anyone to throw it to or not
