Show Log For Tuesday February 12, 2013

             Rugby may have an image problem

Phil talked to Dr. Jim Sadler about wrestling being dropped from the Olympics as of 2020. Dr. Sadler feels wrestling makes weaker men look bad. Caller Lloyd said some of wrestling's "moves", like putting a thumb in an opponents rectum for leverage. are so tasteless that the sport is simply a liability in terms of image.

Former coach Jersey Jeffries joined the show and talked about a fullcourt shot taken in a recent girls highschool basketball game that went in....on a bounce. Jeffries felt the one bounce rule was good. It allowed "four eyes and dorks" to feel like they've got a shot at contributing. 

Little Ian Anderson discussed the inclusion of rugby and golf in future Olympics. The "thumb in the bum" move they use in wrestling is one they also use in rugby and Ian said that ruins rugby's image. "You don't want to tell your grandkids you won a gold medal in a sport where it took your thumb up a blokes bum to win it."

    The thumb in the butt was funny when I read it. It was twice as funny when I heard it.
    Wrestling is an honorable sport. I do not understand this decision. Comcast and NBC probably influenced this somehow because of ratings and advertisement.

    I thought it was funny last night when Phil was talking about the football players wearing the huge helments.
