    Why do you make a joke about my matches, i am not the best wrestler in the world, i have not even been wrestling for that long, wrestling is a hobby for me.

    So say what you like.

    I have done submission and boxing a lot longer than wrestling so, i am still finding my feet in wrestling.

    Don't hate, appreciate.

    Didn't mean no harm, but if you're going to make dumb ass statements on Sanderson and his reasoning not to compete, I guess I can state my opinion on the quality of your wrestling.

    I would love to see Cael wrestle again. I think that he would be an incredible asset for the US however I agree that he has nothing to prove. If his drive is not there then why continue? He's moved on to another phase of his life. I think that it is hard for many to comprehend because for most of us our career did not end on our terms. It ended with a loss at the state tournament, or placing lower than we wanted, it ended not making the final tournament or a college team. For me it ended without a state title or a college scholarship, it ended not making a college team even. I would love to be able to pull the straps up again and compete but I do not have that opportunity. I'm not that gifted. Cael was able to accomplish everything that he wanted to and walk away on his own terms, isn't that better than watching an aging icon slowly loose it? Who remembers Michael Jordan playing for the Washington Wizzards? What does Cael have to prove?

    He's doing nothing different than Gable did. Both had YEARS left in their careers after the gold. Both went on to shoe endorsements and high profile coaching gigs. Nothing against either of them, but Gable proved his point in dominant fashion and Cael squeaked through and got out when the going was good. Gable had nothing to prove; Cael had plenty of badasses out there to go against for years to come. We need Cael on these teams as a leader, I see it as a letdown. Disappointed.

    Trusty, i think i am a good wrestler for my experience. I also have a difficult situation, all the wrestlers i train with are amazing, they all have atleast ten years experience on me, the wrestlers with simialar experience to me i defeat easily. My regular training partner won bronze at the junior world champs for Iran i train with lots of Iranians who give me nothing. It makes it hard for me to develop technique.

    Then i go to competitions and have to wrestle guys who are from Russia, Iran, Ukraine or are on the British national team and train 6 times a week twice a day.

    Like i said wrestling is a hobby for me, i'd have to train like mad to even have a chance and frankly i don't have the time.
