alcohol makes me think

I hear wrestling out of bounds is now a good thing. It seems to me the 285 final at 1A 2017 could have used a ref to enforce the OB. Stupid rules committee did a huge disservice to the sport. We will be going to a school and the entire gym floor will be a mat. Wrestling surface will be wall to wall. Participants going to get hurt at tourneys. This total disregard for the OB line is a detriment to the sport.
I'm not qualified to make intoxicated analysis but this rule is a step in the right direction. The idea that now we'll be flying off the mats is 'fake news'. There is only one change, everything else is the same. That change is very small. Until now if wrestler A has his legs inbounds and has wrestler B on his back but shoulders out of bounds we just sit there and wait and wait and wait before the ref blows his whistle. Why wait, why waste time if no points will be awarded. Now we'll be able to do pretty much the *same* as we always have just award points in those positions. Can't scoot out of bounds to save yourself from being pinned anymore.
Give it time let it play out before deeming it a falure
awesome match by these stud heavyweights. The flurry that starts at 1:26 ends in a throw that is perfectly 'inbounds' for a TD but OB for a nearfall. They wrestle there on the edge for a few seconds but no points? I never saw why. This situation could have even ended in a pin. No one was endangered here. At least 2 extra points were technically earned
