Thread: Stalling or Not?

    Default Stalling or Not?

    Jim Hochstrasser and I had the discussion on Saturday before one of the matches.

    I didn't want to hijack the other thread ( anymore).

    If wrestler "A" (insert dominant wrestler name here) is so good (insert position here) is it stalling if a lesser opponent is unable to do anything?


    Example Varner on top against a non-ranked guy?

    Metcalf on his feet against, a lesser opponent who is backing up?

    I will a few people chime in and then put in my 2 cents.

    I'd say that the rules don't mention situations like that at all and it *should* be equally called no matter who is wrestling who.

    If we went by assumptions Gable would have never lost his last match.

    I brought this over here to clear up that thread..

    Yeah, but that only means he shouldn't win the Hodge, not that he should be expected to do more to get stalling calls than someone wrestling a higher ranked opponent.

    I think it depends on what exactly happens. Is the person really backing up intentionally or is he being pushed (which happens)? Also, when you're on bottom, I think it depends on what the top guy is doing. If he's trying to turn you and you are just balling up or trying to stay rigidly flat without trying to get out, it's definitely stalling. However, sometimes there's just not much you can do on bottom. If your opponent is right on top of you and has all of his weight right on top of you, it's sometimes very difficult to improve your position until he moves. Just my $.02.

    Mueller did the best stall job I've seen in a long time -stayed on the corners and refused to open up or come to center and shot from 10 feet away and was backing out before he finished his shot .
    IT is stalling and will just keep getting worse until you DSQ a few guys .

    If this is found to be true, I want a retroactive stalling call against Esposito for being able to ride me for 2 minutes without breaking a sweat. :P He never turned me, but was obviously the superior wrestler on top.. lol

    I'm pretty sure that's how it works.. I can add it to my resume of amazing achievements.

    Along with:

    - First Wisconsin born pipeline masters surfing champion
    - First man to walk on mars, without spacesuit.
    - Underwater basket weaving grand champion, '88


    Sorry... I keep hi-jacking threads.. Im being too goofy today from a month of coding.

    Just so we're clear, are we debating whether the stalling call should be assessed on the superstar or the underdog?
