    Default OT Rideout stall calls

    Does anyone else think it makes sense to remove stalling calls from the 30 second rideout? Of course the guy on top is stalling. Who the hell is looking for a turn during the rideout?

    It is impossible for the refs to call stalling consistently in this situation.
    Maybe be a little more active with calling the stalemates.

    I would agree with that...the name of the game is get up, get out.

    Wouldn't this just turn into a 'who can hold onto the ankle longer' contest?
    There's no such thing as a pretty good aligator wrestler.

    It would and it wouldn't if you were quick to call stalemates and give the bottom wrestler a fresh start then he would be able to execute a sitout or other escape to clear his ankles.

    Rideouts are fundamentally a flawed way to do 2OT, but I think quick stalemates and no stalling are the way to go. But then again if they know there's no stalling what's to keep them from consistently grabbing the ankle?

    I think they should wrestle extra 2 minute periods until someone scores. I don't think it will take any longer for a match than stopping after a 1 minute and stopping after each guys rides etc., would probably take less time.

    If they do a quick stalemate you might starting seeing cautions and then penalty points for false starts which would add an element of suspense to the overtime.

    Why not use the best system in the world? The only system that has no controversy and one that everyone can agree to love. Ball grab and clinch.

    Why not shut off the clock and first TD wins it ?
