I have no words for this failure

What's the big deal? It's not like wrestling has some grand history going all the way back to ancient Greece or anything.

What "new sports" are they gonna add that they'd have to drop wrestling?

And what gain do they expect from revamping the games? Television ratings? I thought it was a foregone conclusion that the winter games do better on TV than the summer games because people are less prone to watching TV when the weather is nice. Adding new sports won't remedy this.

They're gonna add golf and rugby.

Rugby I am okay with.

Golf? No thanks.

Yeah, I'd go with rugby....... in place of field hockey.

Also Taekwondo is super boring to watch on TV so they ought to replace that with MMA.

That's retarded. Isn't wrestling one of the original games?

Yeah, because two naked men rolling around on the floor with one another was the only thing that got ancient Greeks out of the house.

oh that's just dumb. Why don't they drop one of the other competitions, like fencing? All this because someone wants to try to add golf as the new sport?

 

Just as bad is the idea that wrestling gets bumped into the wild card category on what they decide to just barely wave in... and what's included in its competition? "Roller sport." No, no, no, no, no. We do not dump wrestling for inline skating.

Maybe it was the region I grew up in but I don't think there was a single school within a 200 mile radius that had a wrestling program. It must be on of those weird ass MIN-NUH-SOH-TUH DONTCHA KNOW midwestern sports.

 

I always thought there was something homoerotic about feeling up other men like that. The WWF type crap is all theatrics but these ppl take serious what is basically judo w/o the machoness & with all this feely-touchy crap.

Well I mean I don't really care one way or another if the Olympics has the sport. In my region though we didn't have wrestling at all. Nowhere.

I always got the impression that wrestling was like a midwestern sport, because most of the participants were from that region.

The likely reason that they are doing this is because how easy it is to bias calls as a referee. The sport was completely arbitrary and not based on skill at all. It was biased to an extreme that IOC had to drop it to signal that the leaders in the sport needed to get their #### together.
