    and I would amend it to say "Nor Upset" , don't know how on this site. When I wrote that, it is with the knowledge of they are going to do what they want regardless of what kids are being affected because they have never measured anything based on how it affects the participant. (We all know that hiring a wrestler pretty much raises the bar in any business)

    I am upset, I wrestled, coached, officiate it, and have a state champ. Iowa BLEEDS red and green-so I understand and for you I stand corrected. I signed the petition but with this administration they would allow butterfly gathering as a sport.

    My prayer will be answered if they reverse on this, from pressure from out government, but I just don't see that happening.

    Maybe, because of this changes will occur to strengthen wrestling, make BJJ, Judo and everything else more magnified and help gain ground.

    Hell, our own senator is going after brain pad for petes sake. Sheesh this world is changing, for the worse.

    Agree,
    That could be a 'white paper' on how ignorant the IOC is.

    Notice cycling was mentioned, and to compare- has wrestling EVER been engulfed in the doping? Yet, Cycling has much more money being thrown at it, cyclist's exit the Tour early to participate in the Olympics, and here is wrestling- always getting it done.

    We need the Dan Gable's of the world to come out and the rest of the world wrestling community to support it HARD, I just dont think the bean counters at the IOC give a damn, and we dam sure know they did not EVER wrestle.

    Meanwhile, in Russia:

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/0...ef=mostpopular

    Russian wrestling coach Vladimir Uruimagov states,“If they expel wrestling now, that means that gays will soon run the whole world,” Uruimagov said, adding that cutting wrestling from the Olympic program was “a blow to masculine origins.”

    But after they succeed they'll make a channel that's all wrestling, all the time, so it'll work out in the end.

    The comment he made about how personal it is to him strikes us all right in the gut.

    The above mentioned quote from Vladimir is also NO JOKE. We will stand alone.

    The Olympics has degenerate dinto an unwatchable morass. Girls prancing around with ribbons, syncronized swimming, badmitton, ping pong. Now golf? And wrestling, one of the original Olympic events., the pinnacle of athlete to athlete struggle for domination, is out. IOC is Idiots Out of Control. They have driven the games into the ground. Terrible.
