Thread: Jared Frayer has filed a grievance in his WTT final match

    Default Jared Frayer has filed a grievance in his WTT final match

    The other site reports that Jarad Frayer has filed a grievance in his WTT final match becaue he says didn't lock his hands in the final clinch before the whistle blew. Anybody know anything about this and how/when it will be resolved?

    Here the link to Frayer's interview:

    I've already posted my thoughts in the Frayer/Metcalf clinch itself, but for the good of the sport I Really hope this grievance doesn't go anywhere. Can you imagine the mess if athletes start legally challenging every quick start from the clinch? Hell, Churella could file the exact same grievance from his Metcalf match.

    LOL at you attacking anyone for being a wrestling ideologue, considering you hate anything Iowa.
    Jacob Schlottke---Gone too soon, and the world is a little less bright because of it. RIP, brother.

    One, two, Evans is coming for you...

    Somewhere in America a man named Dean is googling the word "ideologue."
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

    Reporting on the other site that Frayer lost his appeal. I'm glad that happened, not because I necessarily agree with the original call, but to prevent a precedent being set. We have protests in Canada and they are a monumental pain. Can't even imagine how much it would suck if people filed grievances every time a clinch call went against them.

    Does wrestling have a form of "instant replay" already, where a call can be protesting and reviewed during the match?

    Yes. Coaches and athletes have the ability to challenge one call per match.

    This situation was reviewed at the tournament but wasn't overturned, Frayer then decided to take it to this next step.

    Precedent has already been established with Matt Linland winning a court battle to force an rematch to make th e2000 Olympic team.

    Randy Lewis did it before Lindland back in 1984.

    I was aware of that incident ODH though I don't know the details.

    What made the Frayer case worrisome is their exact same scenario plays out all the time because of the clinch rules. The defensive guy
    has to try and anticipate the whistle because if the offensive guy moves first he is screwed. This makes most clinches a judgement call on the official's part (especially because US refs won't let the guys get set properly for some reason) of the "did he move too early?" variety. Unfortunately, that's just part of wrestling right now. Last year's 74kg world title was won that way; Tsargush started early and got away with it.
