Re: How tapping can be viewed
I agree with BTB. I have found that cry outs and taps most often occur when their shoulders are flat on the mat. As two seconds has easily passed before the tap/cry out is sent and acknowledged, alleviate the distress by calling the pin. As long as the offensive wrestler has legally and safely applied the hold, this is the solution that would discourage misuse of the rules.
