    Default Sanders v. Robles Match Video

    I know a lot of people had wanted to see the "other" controversial match. Here it is.

    Already said my piece about the bit at the end several times. I will say were it not for the awful stalemate call in the first period after Robles' 3rd turn then the match likely wouldn't have gotten that far anyway.

    I had not heard anything about that until now but that was real cheap. I want to think he came back for the 2nd hand shake on his own and not because the coaches made him.

    That stalemate call was ridiculous. Mike Allen should face disciplinary measures for that call.

    Apart from the controversy, that was a pretty awesome match to watch. Tons of scoring, lots of excitement, and some really cool tilts in the 1st.

    meh, out of line for sure but I think this is another case about people making too big of a deal about it.

    Robles is pretty much the definition of a style matchup, Sanders beat him pretty bad earlier in the year and almost got techfalled this time, and then once he got out from the bottom he came storming back.
    Gold is an idiot.

    I can't tell if Robles raised his hand before after the call. It appears before the call. May be that had something to do with it. Had to be. There's no other reason for that stalemate.
    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.

    Wasn't Robles just raising his hand to make it clear to the official that he had broken the hold, so that he could go back to it for another tilt? He did it earlier in the match and it looked like that was his reasoning for showing the official his hand.

    I agree that the stalemate call was about as bad a call as I've ever seen Mike Allen make. If that was a stalemate, then every riding situation that doesn't result in a turn in 10 seconds or less should be whistled for a stalemate.
