This is one of the main reasons why it's instrumental for each Wrestling Official Association to be consistent. It seems like he snuck through the cracks and finally got called out on it. I, myself, have been guilty to let a kid wrestle without a haircover whose hair did not technically meet the rule (hair a quarter inch too long). I tell the kid and the coach, by the next match, he's going to need a trim or a legal haircover. I don't lose sleep over that decision. I'm still trying to figure out how a coach, trainer, team, and anyone else there, including the ref allowed this to happen in front of everyone. Such a travesty. I just wish we had the full story. Be interesting to see how this plays out....

Yeah the more I hear, the more I question the coach.  What this a case where he didn't act because of fear of it looking like a racial issue and let others do his talking.?  Why didn't this coach assure the correct headgear was available for the kid, either buying it or advising the kid where to buy it.?

Those watching the after bout video want to believe it was the ref instigating his low attitude walking off the mat because his forced the trim, when it was the kid kicking himself down for knowingly not getting the correct headgear and losing his dreads because of his own lax attitude.

This would be a COMPLETELY different story if the ref didn't have that "blemish" on his record. I feel for the guy to a certain degree.

Doesn't appear to be any ruling yet.  I think they are letting it cool down first.
Several are on "ignore".   I won't argue with the ignorant and disrespectful..
