For tears now since the Internet and YouTube had been available I've seen bitching about depth, benches and other powerlifts . But how do other sports call things according to their published rules?
- In old time baseball , at least into the 80s you could be within a yard of second base on a double play as a shortstop and the runner coming from first was out.
2. There has never been a controversial call by a referee in college football at the D1 level, NFL regular season, playoff or super bowl. Especially after replay .
- The MLB strike zone? Seriously ?? It hasn't been knees to chest as far as I know. And no catcher ever pulls one back in that's a little outside.
These are sports , real sports with full time, highly paid professional officials in the case of baseball and basketball . Very highly trained in football's case. And mistakes are made.
Ever see a cyo basketball game? Traveling is actually called on the ten year old boys and girls. But the best players in the game have this basic rule ignored ? Why?
We all know why. I'm not advocating crappy refereeing in powerlifting , but want to pose a question , if basic rules are ignored in high level big money sports and fans aren't complaining about strike zones, traveling, or non holding calls? Why in powerlifting ?
I do fry in powerlifting there are only nine lifts in a meet lasting a fee seconds each . In other sports you do have multiple opportunities to come back and even things out. But a squat is an inch high and people blow their o rings out while Michael Jordan takes three steps does some crazy dunk and people jizz themselves . While a sixth grade girl gets called for traveling .
