    Flat out the guy isn't some bum off the street. :wrestler:

    i'm sorry to give you a hard time. but you are still off. Zadick was not a US senior freestyle champion in '07. He lost at the senior nationals. he did however, win the world team trials that year.

    furthermore, who is talking about ''bums off the street''??? only you. no shit he's not a bum off the street. he's a DOMINANT WRESTLER IN THE U.S. and we can even try to say a force in the Americas, however, he is NOT a dominant force in the INTERNATIONAL CIRCUIT.

    you have inspired me, so i'm going to go ahead and continue my zadick bashing. i think, very soon, bunch and coleman are going to surpass zadick. those young kids looked very good at the US nationals and at the Olympic trials. bunch reminded me of a more athletic joe williams. 90% of the shots he took at the trials, turned into take downs. coleman just needs more freestyle mat awareness. a. cejudo has pulled off some good wins too.

    Which is it "not very good" or Dominant Wrestler in U.S.?

    Make up your mind. Zadick's window of opportunity is now. So Bunch and the others at this weight should pass him at some point.

    Bash away genius.:stupid:

    So what is your assertion? Zadick is not very good internationally but, he is the best the U.S. has to offer?

    If that is the case then say it. Saying things like he is not very good leaves a lot to the imagination.

    Where does he rank in the world at 60KG? top 100, top 50, top 25 what is your definition of not very good? Just wondering. You want to throw something out there like that, well qualify it.

    I'm done picking at your statement.

    I know exactly what you meant however unclear you want to be. You can keep editing you responses all you want. The fact remains, Zadick is a good wrestler period. Not some guy who got lucky once and had a "good tournament".

    I didn't say the guy was the best in the world, did I.

    I was just taking issue with your "Let's face it Zadick is not very good....."
