That said, it was a very difficult situation, and they did try to get it right. No ref wants to misinterpret a rule. Why it's easy to sit in the bleachers and judge this is not an easy job especially in that type of match.
That official seems to have made a mistake, along with the head official during the discussion. They are human like you, remember? NCAA Championship officials get it wrong occasionally too. NFL officials get it wrong a lot it seems.
Officials in WA are down almost 40%. Please feel free to get certified and help. Let's put those judging here in that spot and see how they keep it together. That Official is a top 5 official every year and he travels all year round working high level events....TO GET BETTER.
As we lose more officials it will dawn on you that without officials, there's no matches. Remember that before you take him to the stake. Not one ref I know tries to screw a kid or is bias. My two cents. The correct wrestler won the match.
