Thread: Would Cael have taken his Third Gold?

Hybrid View

    Default Would Cael have taken his Third Gold?

    Cael won Olympic Gold basically wrestling folkstyle against the freestylers. He had the potential as we all saw and reaffirmed when he beat our representative this year - after being retired for more than half a decade.

    If he had kept at it would we have seen him winning his third Olympic Gold this time?

    Such a shame to see great talent not compete.

    This is like the third thread you've started on the same subject. Just re-read what people said the last time you brought it up.

    Maybe you ought to be proud believing you can count to three? The question is valid. The reason wrestling is the redheaded stepchild of sports (shown by the cheezy 6500 seat Olympic venue and college crowds averaging about 200) is attitudes like yours.

    I too blame Quinn for many of wrestlings problems. Also the economy.

    Maybe you should get over your weird obsession with Cael. Focus more on promoting the ones who are actually wrestling. Bitching about how Cael's absence is a waste of talent will not put people in seats. Talking about the domination of Burroughs or how Varner stepped up might. Heck, just promoting Jake Herbert as a human would draw people in to root for him. You aren't fooling anyone. This is just another thread created for you to criticize Cael Sanderson. Get over it. He's retired. Move on.

    To answer the question: Maybe. I certainly believe it's possible. Would he have done better than Herbert? Almost unquestionably, but that's not a new revelation.

    Would Jake Varner have won Olympic Gold if Cael was focused on winning an Olympic Gold for himself and not soley focused on Varner? That's a legitimate question as well.

    well quee, telling others what to think seems to be who you are. Cael was the brightest star we had in a long time. Potential out the wazoo. Even came out of retirement and schooled out current top guy without any problems - and then went back into hiding.

    You can say it is to coach but there is more to it. All that talent and potential and he is content to sit.

    Doesn't make sense.
