    Yes, but that's fluid weight that comes right back on. It's a lot harder and slower to lose regular body weight.

    Good point, but that's still not a ton of weight given that it's almost September. What does he realistically have to walk around at to make 197 consistently, 215?

    Maybe preseason. In season, I'd think he would want to not go higher than 205 or 208.

    I'm not so sure that a 30 pound cut is THAT uncommon, is it?

    I think that Spider was the first person whom I read this from, but how many 125 pound adults do you know? I have to believe that many of those 125-133 pounders are dropping 20-30 pounds to get at that weight.

    My nephew used to go from 210-220 to 160 in a matter of a couple of months. Yes, he ate virtually nothing, but he always pulled it off.

    You make a very good point, in that most people do it. My personal views are different, though. I can see a guy weighing 210 dropping to 160 if the extra weight was beer and donuts. If it's from working out and eating right, then I don't get it.

    You're right that most adult males weigh more than 125 or 133. But if they weigh more than 140-150 I wouldn't dream of asking them to cut down. They probably aren't fat at 155, to ask them to cut 30lbs of an already small frame is silly to me. I know people do it and it works. But I just don't agree with it. I am from the camp that skill can overcome size. Not always, of course, but I really think Gable or the Brands boys (insert fav. lightweight here) could have won a weight class above too.

    But, again, you make a very valid point.

    Knowing him, I'm certain that it would have been beer and doughnuts. Add some pizza in the mix, and you would be dead on right!

    You know Brodie, Ban?
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

    No. "Him" was my nephew, whom I referred to in my post. I couldn't even tell you who Brodie Ambrose is; never heard of him. Is he related to the infamous ref, though?
