I was just reading this. Methinks judo is next. To me, taking out wrestling is like taking out the track events. They were all part of the ancient games and should stay there.I feel like you eye-bawlin' me, dawg!

I posted, but it disappered! Basically, said **** the IOC. These guys are idiots. Lets take a real sport, one person competing against another, no excuses, definate winner or loser. And replace it with dancing type "sports" that are judged by others and where there is no clear winner or loser. Basically going from sport into intertainment.
I'm losing my faith in humanity now!

Someone needs to get their ass kicked. By a wrestler.
The IOC should understand that the sports shared by the ancient and modern Olympics are a part of what links the two together.
Beyond tradition, wrestling is widely considered one of the, if not the, oldest martial art. In my opinion, removing it from the games is like removing one of the legs on a chair.

Wrestling IS the olympics. By removing wrestling, they are removing the olympics from the olympics. Wrestling will then leave, taking the olympics with it, leaving what? Dancing.

Breaking news, the Olympics was actually bought out by the Got Talent franchise.

So, let's think about this for a moment ...
News Item #1: Pope Benedict XVI announces his retirement.
News Item #2: IOC announces the removal of wrestling from the Olympics.

On a side note: the original spelling of "Disney" was "d'Isigny". Another reason to hate Normans, wherever they may land.

I would be willing to see wrestling go If they replaced it with Grappling, and I mean willing in the sense of " oh FFS, as long as people are still somehow wrestling, I'll live with it."
