Re: Respect your opponent
There are a lot of comments on here about "Don't be a baby" or "Do Better, Work Harder"..."Don't make excuses". But when you've got kids out there who are national champs, have wrestled on a national team, or have been wrestling since they were a pee wee, going out and kneeing their opponent in the head, or having their opponent by one leg, lifting it as high as they can and then pushing their opponent out of bounds 15 feet beyond the circle, or giving that head and arm an extra strong squeeze so that instead of pinning the kid, you decide you need to hurt him/her. These are things I have seen this year. So instead of telling another wrestler to "just work harder", "stop being a baby", maybe tell the punks/taunters out there to respect their fellow wrestlers.
