Midlands is cancelled……but the tournament is happening. We have a venue, we have teams that are in. The 2021 Matmen and MatWomen open. This is happening!!! Any colleges interested reach out. @TheRokfin @MatScoutWillie @IllinoisMatmen

I think this is excessive. Just like the Ivy League cancelling their season last year.
We have evidence - the 2021 NCAA Tournament - that the Wrestling community possesses the structure and discipline to conduct a tournament like the Midlands.
I can understand excluding the fans. But instead of a full reimbursement, use some of the funds (charge) to televise or stream the tournament. I think the Wrestling community will gladly pay to support the wrestlers.
But this decision inserts an element of mystery into whether we will see the 2022 season play out. Let's all hope so.

Simple fix, if the 30 percenters would simply do their part for society and get vaxed. Caused me no grief, all three times that I did it.

Glad to see there are people in the wrestling community that recognize the threat to these athletes from covid is essentially zero and people are free to manage their own risk. Thank you for stepping up and filling the void.

mcharney,

Nice to see that the concept of public health isn't lost on you! Can't get one by you, can they? ;)

this omnicon variant is nothing more than than a common cold... compare the symptoms to a bottle of Nyquil. If Trump was still in office fish like Ban would be screaming not to trust the shot. here's an interesting article backed up with facts for each claim.

Why not have some fun with this one, eh, folks?! Must be why Deuce supporters DON'T get vaxed, while non-supporters of Deuce DO get vaxed, eh, my boy!?

Deep thoughts, AGAIN!
