Ready to be pissed!!!!!

People are correct it was not the IESA's decision to cancel state. NIU and the President made the call. All events were to be cancelled, wich included IESA wrestling state. They didn't however feel the need to cancel the Basketball Super sectionals that will take place on the court at NIU Tuesday night. Only stipulation was a certain number of tickets would be sold. Ok now feel free to email the president of NIU and express your concern.

Wrestling would have 600+ kids, multiple coaching staffs, plus parents. A couple thousand people in a two day all day event.

Basketball super sectional has 25 kids, two coaching staffs, plus parents. Maybe 100 people in a 2 hour event where everyone can spread out.

While I understand asking why the double standard, they are not of the same magnitude.

A new venue is needed. Coaches and athletes only.

DeKalb High School and Sycamore High School fieldhouse could each handle One of the classes.
29 matches per 19 weightclasses equals 551 matches.
Run tournaments on 5 mats and the tournament could be run in approximately 8 hours.
3rd/4th/5th/6th place winners would have 5-6 matches on the day.

Have plenty of hand sanitizer and limit number of 70-80 year old spectators.
See somebody coughing send them home.

Just an idea.

IKWF just cancelled based in part on advice from state health officials. No venue is going to do it on short notice, and odds are things will be worse next week than it is this week. Give it up folks. The kids will get over it; it’s time the adults do too.

Yes.

YES, That's BRILLIANT !!!!

Here is how I see THAT playing out;

Spectator:
(cough, cough, ahem)

Security:
"I'm sorry (sir/ma'am), you will have to leave."

Spectator:
(exclaims) "WHAT !!"

Security:
"You coughed. You have to leave. NOW !!"

Spectator:
"But all I did was clear my throat !!"

Security:
"I'm sorry about that, but you will have to leave, or I will have to remove you."

Spectator:
"Then you will have to remove me."

Security:
(looks puzzled, turns to his "coworker")

Spectator:
"Go ahead, touch me then....."

Security: (to his "coworkers")
"I'm not touching him, you do it."

Coworker:
"I'm not touching him, you do it."

Spectator:
(grinning) "Well?"

Security:
"I guess you were just clearing your throat. Have a nice day."

IHSA cancelled the state basketball tournament. Were you implicating that basketball was given priority over wrestling? If so appears you were incorrect.
