    Re: Hard times coming for Iranian teams

    Just thinking out loud and making sure there isn't any hypocrisy here, so to clarify....are you a supporter of Iran as a nation or just it's wrestlers (who may or may not support their government).

    Re: Hard times coming for Iranian teams

    I 100% agree with all of this. No concessions made if corruption is proven to not play a factor.

    Sadly, we cannot guarantee that tampering will not occur just as we cannot convince Iran to change...

    You posted this after mine so I apologize for my above post since you do indeed answer some questions here.

    If it is true that FILA has tampered the draw to negatively affect Iranians then I...

    Re: Hard times coming for Iranian teams

    Sir, you called me racist several times and I took offence. And I think I had a right to feel that way. You clearly do care that I am racist because you mentioned it in multiple points.

    I have no...

    Re: Hard times coming for Iranian teams

    You also state that I have a bias against a group of people. I do not. I feel for the wrestlers because it is not their policy. But what do you expect FILA to do. You have convinced me that a...

    You can call the policy racist all you want and I won't care. But calling me racist is inappropriate, wrong and offensive. You have turned a discussion that was thought provoking and mature into a...

    Re: Hard times coming for Iranian teams

    Well considering how important wrestling is for Iranians (as Judo pointed out) I'm sure the repercussions of wrestling the match far outweigh the glory of winning. I can't see a simple wrist slap...

    Re: Hard times coming for Iranian teams

    I'm not an expert but I assume the Team Leader would intervene and not allow this to happen. If it somehow did, again I can only assume, the wrestler would face punishment upon returning to Iran.

    Re: Hard times coming for Iranian teams

    You have used the word 'racist' about 3 times and I think it is totally uncalled for. I appreciate that you, as an Iranian in America (I assume), face ignorance and hatred potentially daily. But I...

    Haha, wow. I sure hope you're just an Internet Troll that is looking for a reaction because some of those comments are a little crazy.

    It is very obvious you are politically involved and biased on this topic. That's fine.

    I am a simple Canadian who has zero political allegiances in the Iran/Israel conflict and only see things as...

    Re: Hard times coming for Iranian teams

    Of course it's about politics.

    This whole controversy stems from Iran's racist/prejudiced/hate policy towards Israel. If this ignorant policy didn't exist, there would be no issue but somehow you...

    Huh???

    How is this in any way 'supporting' the Israelis? Like you said, any world-level Iranian would easily beat an Israeli, so making them wrestle is actually a detriment to the Israelis. I...

    When it first came out the guys had come up with a fantastic promo video of highlights. I know its a long shot but does anybody still have a link to it or maybe downloaded it?

    Arjan is a mediocre wrestler who has perfected stalling, positioning and 1 point wins. Kudos to him for finding a niche and being successful at it but MAN. I've been watching him grind out wins since...

    Fair. BUT you indicate that Wilson's win wasn't at the Olympics. I don't think that makes his win any less valuable since the Olympics rarely go the way they are expected to. If you were to bet on an...
