In the 2012-2013 season coaches will have the opportunity to request a video challenge for any call made, with the exception of a fall, during the match. In the past video reviews were only allowed at the NCAA championships and they were limited to non-subject issues such as timing and correcting the score. Allowing coaches to challenge an official’s judgment is a major shift for wrestling. The continuous action that takes place in wrestling requires split second decisions that can now be looked at in further detail. Is this good/bad for the sport of wrestling. Speaking with members of the Rules Oversight Panel there are already some interesting questions being debated without any matches wrestled this season. What are your thoughts on this topic? Below is a link to the official proposal and its details. Please share any comments you have below.
