Re: New Freestyle Rules from FILA
I won't argue that Spider. I also like sudden death overtime for its simplicity. "Next point wins" is something everyone understands. I remember trying to explain the folkstyle OT procedure to my wife as it was happening on TV only to realize I didn't really get it either. Simplicity is something wrestling badly needs (though that's more of an issue in the international styes- and the new rules are a big step in the right direction).
The biggest issue I have with the folkstyle OT procedure is that it goes to a riding time tiebreaker at some point. I wish they would wrestle until one guy outscores the other.
