    Default What peeves you off in wrestling?

    Free your mind, spill your rants, share your peeves, or just discuss.

    One thing that I get peeved from are leg riders. It is extremely annoying and most people use it to stall and/or rest. It slows the match down considerably and can make it boring to watch. It is even more annoying when used against you.

    I hate it when people constantly hit my face. Like, even just a little shove makes me so angry. Thank god PIAA finally put that in the "unnecessary roughness" section.

    Sounds like you can't get out from bottom, that is frustrating

    You can score a lot of points if you are a good leg rider.

    How about stalling out most of the match, then shooting like crazy the last 30 seconds and expecting to get a stall call.
    You do the math..... I'll do the alfredo!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!

    I hate guys who wrestle so fast and move like lightning. They completely throw me of balance and they score on me. I like to take it slow and pace myself so I can setup my attacks easliy and then go for the kill.

    I can't stand tournaments that start late. Every single wrestling event here starts late (really late). If you know you need an hour to set the brackets then set the weigh in time an hour before wrestling is supposed to start. Don't leave yourself 15 minutes if you need an hour.

    Not necessarily, but I just hate leg-riders. We will see when the season starts how I will do on bottom.

    Like how late do they start? Usually over here tournaments start early morning.

    Unnecessary "injury" time outs.

    Coaches who bend the rules rather than teach good sportsmanship.

    Parents and coaches who take the sport too seriously and go overboard on kids, coaches and officials.
