Poor Sportsmanship Or Justified Comeuppance?

Submitted by: misscutieroo 8 years ago in Sports

If the college wrestler in the red trunks showboated the way he did, he deserved what he got, cheapshot or not.

"Sore loser, He must have gotten his ass kicked the whole fight."

please take into consideration that it`s the NCAA national college championship, for most wrestlers its the equivalent of the Olympics.

bah, that`s nothing. The boasting was in horribly bad taste, but at least it ended in a shove. Fella could have grabbed him and hurt him far worse than merely making him fall on his butt.

That acrobatic guy definitely did a good job in making him, and his team, look like non-nice individuals. HURRAY FOR SPORTS!

"The fight had 5 seconds left, and in that five seconds, there was no way Metcalf (in the black) could have caught up, so it was the same as say a sports team celebrating with 5 seconds left on the clock; typical, but rude."

Informative.
Very informative....

Actually, the tradition in wrestling is to do a back-flip when you when any championship whether its states, regional, even the NCAA national championship. Especially that. So many wrestlers do a flip when they win.

He went after him becasue there was 5 secs left in the match and he was trying to still wrestle.

Bad on both sides. You can be happy for a upset and running around the mat is fine but the summersault was unneeded but they guy in black should have kept his cool.


Also after watching the video again and watching another video metcalf couldn`t win he was down 3 points so very unlucky for him to win but at the same time neither should have acted the way they should.

If this was just another match it might be considered show boating but this is it, the National championship, and it was a huge upset over probably the best wrestle in the country. He deserves to celebrate. And the whistle was blown before he started andy of his flips anyway.

Caldwell Rocks, I was there when he won his first state championship, his parents were sitting behind us in the stands, and the second his match ended he ran right off the mat into the stands to hug them.

He was wrong for pushing him................he should have kicked him in the nuts. People like that ruin the sport, whatever it may be.

I`ll give those who may be confused a quick rundown. The fight had 5 seconds left, and in that five seconds, there was no way Metcalf (in the black) could have caught up, so it was the same as say a sports team celebrating with 5 seconds left on the clock; typical, but rude.

I don`t know the rules, but judging by the referees trying to interfere before the clock reached zero, the foul or whatever ended the match. And it was already declared before the dude even started celebrating.

So either the match was over and the guy in black was being a douche carrying on, or the match wasn`t over and the red guy was being a dick.

Off-topic, the starting song is good.

"Scared" - Three Days Grace

...Gonna go listen to the full thing now. =D

@ the wrestling: I don`t know the technicalities, but...Cartwheel boy deserved being thrown. Although, if he did land it safely, it`d be pretty epic. XD

if he goes to cartwheel or backflip or whatever while he is still IN play...knock his ass down. That is showboating, which deserves punishment

Poor sport or not.. He deserves the celebrations. Metcalf is like 80-2 now and those 2 loses are to this guy..

Totally Justified. Wrestlers work there @ss off to be the best.That guy should have put his blood sweat and tears into winning the match NOT on just by technicality.
Definitely didnt prove he was a better wrestler IF he werent a woman that guy should have womped him in his face

The other guy worked his butt off too. Have some respect for your opponent.

Honestly I feel he was justified to celebrate the way he did, you work hard to win at what you do and when you do your supposed to hold all that sweat, blood and tears in so you can make the other guy feel better. Nah I would have done the same the other guy should have took it better, he went running after him almost immediately that is poor sportmanship. I have been beaten and seen some ungoldy displays of celebrations, but when I beat someone then guess what it is my turn.

Poor sport, he started going after him almost immediatly. Is the guy supposed to stay placid in his victory? It definitely dosen`t justofy his somersault, but that can`t be considered over the top.

ok here is what happened kid on top is considered best wrestler in college and gets upset by kid on bottom so he celebrates and right fully so

ok, so for those of you who dont know, an escape is worth one point (when you escape from bottom) while a takedown is worth two.

so he probably needed one point to win with very short time.

but yea, i say poor sport, even if he deserved it.

If you get up from that first you get a point, but if you`re on top, if you take the other guy down, you get the point. I think... I may be wrong. Sorry if I am.

poor sportsmanship. he lost, the other was happy and celebrated (also poor sportsmanship). good sport is about being a good sport. neither was justified in their actions, as understandable as they may be. it`s only justified in hockey, somehow.

Caldwell won because time was up and he was ahead in points. He started celebrating early, though... and deserved the little nudge to break his victory jump.

Im a wrestler and my opinion is they are both in the wrong. Metcalf (in black) is one of the best wrestlers alive he is just a beast and since he was upset to a guy he should have dominated he was mad. Metcalfs style is wrestle till the very end whether he is winning or losing and most of the time he is winning and he keeps on wrestling. The other guy should have waited to showoff when the match was over but Metcalf should have been a little smarter. The match itself was a great one both wrestlers are studs.

I used to like that 3DG song in the beginning...poor sportsmanship, but the guy was showing off too much.

I vote poor sportsmanship, because the guy was already after the winner before he even did the flips and was just running around in celebration, which I don`t think is a problem.
