Fix vs. Suriano
« on: January 14, 2019, 02:05:00 PM »
Gentlemen:

What an interesting match.....30 minute match decided by a hand to the face call in SV2. There were so many stoppages and challenges that delayed this match. I felt bad for the fans and the wrestlers. Is there a better system?

Anyone see this match want to share their thoughts on it....I don't know the college rules, but obviously you can't touch someone's face, but to end the match like that at that critical point with a inadvertent touch of the face...tough call.

Let them wrestle and let them decide their faith. Kudos to the refs to carefully make sure they did get all the correct calls in reviewing each challenge. They earned their check that night.

Yeah I was there.  Absolutely horrible ref.  At least 5 video reviews including the one over 15 minutes over a locked hands call...which was waved off.

From my seat the ref was standing in the middle of the two so I never saw the actual touch, but the two were hand fighting and gauging it distance off the forehead (not tapping) the whole bout.  I do know the touch didn't interrupt any movement by Kix so it couldn't have been anything intentional and definitely wasn't a slap.

The sellout crowd gasped over it, no one saw it as anything close to flagrant. 

I can tell you 6 RU PD officers escorted the two refs off the mat and out of the AC.

31 minute for the bout with one 15 interruption...

Ok...I didn't want to come out and say it as blunt as you did, but thanks for sharing. I feel bad for both wrestlers. Even before listening to their post-match interviews, I knew neither of those wrestlers wanted to win that match that way. I never want to decide a match unless I have to, and there are specific situations where we have to interject ourselves and make a decisive call at a critical point that won't be a crowd pleaser, but this sure as heck wasn't one of them. Let that slide, you have to, regardless what the rule. Let them decide their own fate. 6 officers, that's insane. Thanks again for sharing!

The escort was purely precautionary.  The spectators were on his case but not to the extent of warranting an escort, with exception to one bozo that threw a water bottle on the mat in the area of the video review.  He was ID'd immediately and escorted out.  I dont know if he was cited by RUPD but it's highly probable, they don't offer much leeway at the arena.

He was sitting in the area where RU seats their comps and recruits.  PS, RU doesn't serve beer in the venue.

What I didn't understand is that there was one HUGE STALL GLOVE thrown on the mat as well....Shouldn't the GLOVES have been GREEN?!?!?! Rutgers was red....that part I didn't understand....Just buy the Incredible Hulk ones.....unless sometimes Rutger is Green (because it's the typical home color)....it was a little confusing....

Next time there is a chaotic scene.....grab me those ankle bands while everyone is focused on the chaos, I'll pay for shipping and your time! Matman 38 are still not long enough.

The glove was tossed by a big time booster that sits front row center to the mat and about 10 feet from the visiting team's bench. He's not someone they are about to escort out. The guy raises it whenever he feels an opponent is stalling, but he's never rolled it out to the mat before. I took as being directed at the primary ref and frustration over the extend review time.   I guess most every school has someone of that sort.  Vocal, but mainly harmless.  He also starts an R-U cheer at the start of the 3rd period of a close bout.  He's no where near the depth of that guy at U Maryland.

Knowing him, he'll paint what he has first.
