    Default Russian Greco team crushes American's team in Sweden

    Russia won 6 Gold medals in the event but you would not know it from the title of the article.

    Apparently, clever American reporting reported only on counted team points using both, Men's Greco and women's wrestling. Russians didn't bring any women anyway it seems.

    In any case, here is the clever article:

    Our Greco boys took care of it when it counted. Bet that sticks in your craw, eh?

    Big, the Mat is not a newspaper, it is the official Web site for USAW. It is Abbott's job to use "clever reporting." It's called public relations. It's not his job to make the Russian teams look good; it IS his job to make the US look good.

    I just read the article, and I don't see anything remotely "clever" about it. Abbott reported how the USA wrestlers did, and then all of the medalists. IT IS THE WEBSITE FOR USA WRESTLING.
