ANSWER. My opinion. As the Jury, I would confirm “White Paddle and B1. No points as Red had Blue in a quadpod and at no time did Blue’s knee, elbow, or head did not make contact with the mat. B1=Red loses the challenge. Tim Pierson
David Ameiss · White Paddle, no takedown, plus B1 for the lost challenge
Thomas Hirsch · Confirm no points, B1 for losing challenge. No knee, head or elbow of defense wrestler touches the mat.
Timothy Hessing · about 20 hours ago No call, blue in quad pod whole time no knees or head touches mat.
ANSWER. My opinion. I would offer R4-BO-R2. R4= Red attacks with a body lock. Blue attempts a desperation throw and lands on his back out of bounds. BO=Blue grabs Red’s singlet attempting to prevent Red from stepping in and securing the body lock. R2= points for Blue’s illegal action. Tim Pierson
Timothy Hessing · R4, red stepa in and gets lo lock then blue tries throw after red already established.
ANSWER. My opinion. As the Jury, I would call R4-R1. Red throws Blue into the protection area. In a continuous motion, Blue rolls to his back. R1=Blue loses the challenge. Tim Pierson
Thomas Hirsch · I would confirm R4 & R1 for losing the challenge.
Timothy Hessing · R4 (confirmed) and R1 for.losing challenge. Only alternative is possible R5
ANSWER. My opinion. As Judge, I would offer R2 for the takedown in the protection area.
Timothy Hessing · B1
ANSWER. My opinion. As the Jury, I would call R4. R4=Standing to danger. Red was the aggressor and drove Blue to the edge. Blue attempted a bail out throw to prevent going into the protection area and landed on his back. Tim Pierson
ANSWER. My opinion. As the JURY, I would confirm R2-R2-B1 & R1. R2=Red chest locks Blue and turns him into danger. R2=Red retains the chest lock and turns Blue into danger a second time. B1=Reversal. R1=Blue loses the challenge. Tim Pierson
Timothy Hessing · I agree with Dave R2-R2-B1 and R1 for losing the challenge
David Ameiss · R2 R2 B1 plus R1 for the lost challenge.
Thomas Hirsch · B2-R2-B1. The first turn was initiated by Blue when he trapped Red's wrist and rolled him into danger. The Red turn and Blue reversal are clear scoring actions.
ANSWER. My opinion. As Referee, I would offer R2-R2-B1. R2=Takedown. R2=Taking Blue into danger. B1=Red Slip Throw, no points. However, Red landed in the protection area. Tim Pierson
Thomas Hirsch · I have R2 TD, R2 turn and no scoring at the edge. Blue stepped out before the reversal and I didn't see it as continuing action.
Timothy Hessing · R2 takedown (knee is down) - R2 turn and B1 for red going out of bounds
David Ameiss · R2 B1. In the initial sequence, Blue did not have 3 points of contact on the mat. Red then turned Blue for R2. They then came to their feet and Red went into the protection area.
ANSWER: As Judge, I would offer B1. Red slip throw into the protection area, no points. B1=Red landing in the protection area. Tim Pierson.
ANSWER: My opinion. As Judge, I would offer R1. The action was continuous and went into the protection area. R1=Blue’s head touched the protection area first. Tim Pierson
David Ameiss · R1, as Blue's head hit in the protection area, from an action which started standing.
ANSWER. My opinion. As the Chairman, I would call a very quick conference. I would offer B2-RO-B2-B2. B2=Turned Red into danger. RO=Red caution for two hands on the head. B2=Points for Red’s illegal hands on the head. B2=Blue completed the turn into danger. I would express to my team that Blue completed the turn with the hands on the head and another 2 points should have been awarded. Restart in parterre, Blue on top/Red on bottom. Tim Pierson.
David Ameiss · I'd call a conference, asking if the Judge's R0 was for Red's two hands on the head. If so, I'd ask if it shouldn't be B2 for the first turn, R0 B2 for the foul, and another B2 for the second turn.
If the Judge offered the R0 for a leg foul, I'd call B2 B2, as I thought the leg contact was incidental. But I'd first ask if it were possible that Red had both hands on Blue's head, in which case it should be B2 R0 B2 B2.
