  1. Is it that simple? I don't understand. Please help me. Or are you the type to torment people when you have power over them? You have spent lots of time editing and/or blocking my other comments. Would you do me the honors?
  2. I will go back and edit out anything 'bashing'.* But, I want to get my point across. Stop speaking out for what you are passionate about is the biggest mistake in life. If it's up and people are sharing thoughtful points to advance the cause I am listening. I may mix in a little banter to try to keep it light if I can. *Upon further review, I can't edit that post for some reason...Y2.
  3. I’m not taking a survey and I don’t need others affirmation (did I spell that right?) like some NCAA refs. I posted an opinion on a public forum. Just happened to be about a friend of the admin. That’s the crux of the issue.
  4. Dear IT Admin, Announcer, affected NCAA refs, 800# super sensitive-delicate gorilla, and others, Let me start by saying I was wrong. The NCAA refs are the best college officials on high school wrestling mats. If my comments seem out-of-bounds this is my proverbial toe-drag. If I was all over your case then call a stalemate (never stalling) and start the ride-time clock. If all you can do is flex your authority to remove me from the site, edit my responses, add people who weren't involved, and get you friends to fight for your ego then you are stalling on bottom. If I don't respond r

  6. Someone edited what I posted twice. This is not what I posted... Y2, I don't have time to entertain 'means' and 'zingers'. If you have a point to make about what I posted then let's discuss it. If you don't want to take the thread down then let's continue. My advice to Y2 and the world is this: compliments and criticism are like chewing gum. Chew on them until you get everything you can out of it and spit it out. If you swallow it you will get sick. Y2, this is a hug from me - 'O'. Hope you have a better day. Stay tuned... when I have more time I am going to send you, th

  8. Y2, I know I’ve offended your friend on this thread. Out of consideration for his feelings and at the request of a friend I am willing to take it down. I didn’t start this thread as a survey. I expressed my thoughts about the officiating at a tourney including the rules I took issue with. Sine then it’s become about attacks. Names have been thrown out that had nothing to do with my point. Why would I not be able to delete it otherwise? I don’t know what I did to you, but I wonder if you have ever threatened to shutdown anyone else’s account b/c they upset a friend of yours? I have the sc
  9. SIACfan, I am 10 years removed. I stand by what I said in the first one without exception. Post comes down tomorrow morning. Barry, you're still my hero. High school rules are the best rules for high school matches. College is even better when applied at the college level.
  10. I agree with your points about NCAA refs in your opening. The point I was trying to make was that the enforcement was not what you would expect on a high school mat. Having experience with both it was obvious. Also, I am not the first person to bring this up. To my knowledge it has been brought up and feedback has been ignored. I felt strongly that it was not fair to the athletes and/or coaches involved. Apparently, I struck a nerve with some people who are close to one of the officials. My point is the same. Due to the resulting personal attacks I will take my comments down. It does
  11. You and I will get along fine. I was just on the phone with Barry. This topic has completely lost it's point. It's not productive. I will take it down. Not right this moment, but it will come down. If any thing I just ask that you read the first post. There is a point in there. After that... I'll do anything I have to to keep Barry from calling me again.
  12. I respect and appreciate the forum and the opportunity is gives for casual fans and wrestling supports to sound off. This is the 3-4th time I have logged on this year. When something strikes me that I want to share I am very careful to not use names or specific references. I don't appreciate you using names and situations involving officials just to show that wrestling officials sometimes make calls we don't agree with. Out of respect for the real best officials in the IHSAA I would ask that you remove the names of other officials from your post. Of course, I did not voice my opinion
  13. Ontherise219 - just because you have an NCAA credential doesn't mean you are a good and/or better official. I want to apologize to any high school officials that may have read that. Meanwhile, if you are an official as a general rule I would caution you to stay off the discussion board too. "There are a lot of officials that have a certain way they call matches not just “NCAA” officials. I would suggest that the officials in question are some of the best in the state." -this statement sums up my whole complaint. If you think that sending an 'NCAA' official to the tournament means he i
