I would have to call that a good call.  

Way too much straight to the toes and intentional pile driving to let it go.

bad call.

if you leave yourself in bad position bad things happen.

the fall could have been a whole lot worse. The wrestler took him straight back instead of spine bustering him.

I think the different opinion we have on the call starts with a different opinion on that being a fall vs. intended.  I would'nt look at it as a fall, rather an intentional launch.  That's mostly based on red's pushing up on his toes for added power coming down and no attempt to not drive all of his upper body weight into the center of blue on landing.  All that said....I don't do freestyle, so my opinion on it is a bit skewed to a folkstyle perspective.

I am a folkstyle guy myself, but I will say this,  If 5 point throws are allowed, and things like powerbombs and such...this was relatively weak.  If the kid was that bad off,  then inj default.  I have seen way worse.

I'm not really familiar with freestyle rules, I know they allow more crazy kinds of throws, so perhaps DQ rules are different as well.  But in Folk I think that would be the right call.  

You have an obligation to safely return a guy to the mat.

Bad Call. I have been tossed like that and popped a bone out of the front of my sternum. I Inj. Def. and went home for the weekend. Put yourself in bad position and you get hurt.
