WTF?!?! Wrestling by definition is a "core" olympic sport. IOC can suck a bag of *****.

Dumb move. I seldom watch the olympics anyway, now I doubt I will at all. Syncronized swimming yes, a real, hard, competitive competition, no.

That's too bad. As someone who wrestled as a youngster I can appreciate these athletes immensely, its a grueling sport.

What a bunch of crap. Didn't the ancient Greeks have a form of wrestling? Yeah, women's beach volleyball is a lot better viewing when the wife and kids are out of the house but wrestling is a far superior sport.

Wrestling was the most popular "core" sport of the original Olympics in Athens. Socrates and Plato were big fans. You can't get rid of wrestling and expect to still use the name "Olympics."

Even before I began wrestling I remember John Smith, Kenny Monday and Bruce Baumgardner having some of the best reactions and tears at the medal stand. Some of my best olympic memories.


Oh well, I'm sure Jacques Rogge and his cronies all got BJ's from the modern pentathelon booster club.

Well paint this as another reason for me to dislike the Olympics. Honestly,for the most part they're really uninteresting and only draw media attention away from preseason NFL.

I literally couldn't believe it when I read the news this morning. Bad decision IMO. The entire process this group went through is clearly a joke.

I don't understand - why can there only be 26 sports? Wrestling is pretty awesome - very dramatic where one slight mistake can be the difference between a medal and like 10th place.

Personally I think the olympics are a joke, I don't mind Track and field or sking type stuff but Syncronized (sp?) Swiming and Water Polo? Do people actually watch that ****?

I watch swimming. Michael Phelps is one of the greatest athletes of my generation. And Missy Franklin is awesome!

Oh, and rhythmic gymnastics - prepubescent girls twirling ribbons while prancing along to music - they keep that, too. What crap.

I watch swimming because I was a swimmer (and a friend from school that was always faster than me has beaten Phelps in lesser heats and still competes) but otherwise it's all about the winter olympics! Much more fun to watch.

The stupid thing's always about politics anyways, these types of decisions are the norm, not the exception.

Who really cares? As long as the US dominates whatever they put in and we can beat our chests, I'm good with it. I'm not gonna watch any of that crap anyways.

They could make the only event a game of peeing in the air and catching it with a crystal bowl balanced on your nose and I wouldn't care as long as the US rocked it.
