Ok, homophobia aside this is a stupid decision and something tells me it either will not stand or there'll be hell to pay. As I've said it's popular in Europe, the Middle East and the Far East. Trying to remove it will bring a united front against the IOC.

I hope the recent rule changes Fila made to Olympic wrestling will help.

Hmm... on one hand I understand this is nonsense and should not be happening, on the other I really don't care about the Olympics so I don't really "care" as much as sympathize with those who do.

even when i was a kid i was always confused about why the olympics mattered. back then if you played anything professionally you couldn't compete. So it was like "yay we won a gold in hockey" but all the best players didn't play. At least it's a little better now in terms of that, but it's stuff like this that makes me wanna say "screw the olympics"!

Wow wow wow, guys. I got it. It is a pain for Wrestling lovers and I hope they revert this decision, but those quotes about horse riding are waaay off. Equestrian sports are, more than anything, a "team work" and horse and rider practice a lot together to make it happen.
The TEAM is considered the winner, the horse name is aways up there and those horses are admired and compensated better than many humans, that being an understatement.

The horses are compensated? What is a horse going to do with money? Or do you mean because they are put out to stud afterwards?

They eat money. The greener the bills, the better.

Anyways getting back on topic, wrestling was selected as three finalist sports to get into 2020, the others being baseball/softball and squash. On a good note the baseball/softball federation president is supportive of wrestling's plight.
