Final X
« on: May 30, 2018, 05:45:14 PM »
So what do you guys think of this?   3 weekends rather than just one.  And in different areas.  This sounds to me like a really good reason to buy Flow or Track.

Make sure you purchase the correct service provider.  If Flo is covering, Track will be blocked.  Quite frankly, I wouldn't waste my money on Flo.

I haven't yet.  It is tempting but all I hear is complaints.

Ok, fair enough.  I'm not sure I like it either.  I'm a kind of "Get 'er done" guy.  I guess if it is a financial success, we will see it next year.  If not, then we won't.  Props for trying something new but I'm not sure this is the something new they should be doing.  I guess we'll see.

Pretty solid picks. I think Gilman/Fix is a toss up.

I will post my picks that I did on Themat.com.   I got a little fire for one of these, I'll let you guess.   These are for all Final X Mens FS.

My pics

57kg Thomas Gilman.  This is a tossup.  Fix has hype and has done well.  So has Gilman.  I take Gilman this year.

61kg MFS:  Nahshon Garrett   I have no reason.  I just think Garrett will pull it off.
 
65kg Logan Steiber.  If he arrives he will win.  I'm guessing he arrives and is ready.

70kg James Green.   I believe Green is the man at this weight for now.

74kg Jordan Burroughs.  This is a really close call but I am going with Burroughs by LANDSLIDE
 
79kg MFS: Kyle Dake.  Tossup to me.  No prediction worth the paper (or digital screen) it is written on.  Ringer was closing in on Dake and Zahid dismantled Ringer.  My gut tells me Dake.
 
86kg MFS: David Taylor.  Taylor appears to be unstoppable.  I'm guessing that's why a two time bronze medallist at this weight moved up a weight.  Taylor has shown he is on a mission.  I predict fall in both bouts.
 
92kg MFS: J'den Cox.  Cox has proved he is world class.  It will take a lot to take him out.  I think Taylor would have done it this year.  Good thing 92Kg was provided.

97kg MFS: Kyle Snyder.  Is there any reason to predict a Snyder loss?  Didn't think so.  Snyder wins.

125kg   Nick Gwiz.  I just don't think Coon has the offensive advantage.  In fact, there isn't much offense in his wrestling style.  Plus he is doing GR before FS in this scenario.  I take Gwiz.

Ringers style was a bad fit against Zahid. Dake is totally different. Personally I wouldn't walk across the street to watch Ringer. I just don't care for his style.

Watched Lincoln last night.  Very boring.
