Re: Knee to the head Video
3A Dad, This isn't about the ML wrestlers its about a flagrant penalty. If that was your son or daughter that took that knee and was out for a concussion what do you tell them then? I guarantee "your mental toughness is going to cost you a state championship" wont matter at that point. There will be no postseason to be concerned about. I have no skin in this what so ever. I think that the ML wrestler will win state this year regardless of who he wrestles. It's not about being tough. It is about teaching our young men and women the difference between right and wrong. There has been some chatter on this board about how the refs will be watching the Davis wrestler for that going forward. Why? If it is only a penalty point who cares? He could be winning 14-0 knee strike the opponent in the head get dinged and win 15-1. Is that what we want to see in wrestling? Is that going to be acceptable going forward? I agree with a previous poster about hearing from some of the referees on this.
