Thread: Caldwell getting lit up on the backflip

    I really don't think anyone is to blame.

    1) Caldwell has every right to run away, flip, jump, skip, or doce doe at any point in the match.

    2) Metcalf started chasing him before the buzzer and even pulled up (you can see it on tape)- he didn't actually blast double the flipping Caldwell which would have looked like he was still wrestling, but been more likely to cause injury.

    3) By the time Metcalf made contact time was up. He let out his frustration on Caldwell while he was in the air.

    Let's just call it what it was... a solid match by Caldwell, a less than perfect performance by Metcalf, and some frustration being released.. No deliberate injuries, no poor sportsmanship. Think of how riled up the community was last night and then think about how riled up they had to be.

    Maybe you don't mean to, but you kind of make it sound like Caldwell lucked his way into sneaking out a victory last night.

    Certainly not luck or sneaking it out.. lol.. He completely dominated Metcalf last night.

    He wrestled a solid, well planned match, made few mistakes and scored on almost every shot he let Metcalf in on... a far cry from the All-Star Classic.

    Metcalf on the other hand couldn't finish a shot & seemed to struggle to find openings throughout the entire match.

    Co-sign. After listening to both Metcalf's and Caldwell's post-match interviews, I think I'm ready to let it go.

    And Metcalf doesn't need to learn to lose with class? Please. He was an excited kid. Take off your homer glasses.

    Sorry, responded when I didn't know we were going to let it go.

    Like I stated in another thread, Metcalf's inability to finish shots was largely due to Caldwell's solid positioning. By taking away the inside from Metcalf with his headlock and shuck by attempts, Caldwell made Metcalf shoot from further out. If you look at the video Metcalfs is kind of stretched out when he shoots, not in a solid standing hi-c position. This allows Caldwell to use his length and scrambling ability to advantage.

    If you listen to Caldwell's interview, I believe he states his strategy in somewhat similar terms.

    I agree with you about mecalf being a little imature to do this. But your right "lose like a man and walk away." In his defense he was going after him before the whistle blew.
