Re: IOC adds golf and drops wrestling from the Olympics

At any rate, I'm not a fan of wrestling or sports in general, but eliminating wrestling from the Olympics just seems wrong. It's like Campbell's discontinuing tomato soup. Or Honda announcing they're going to stop making motorcycles.
In my opinion what's even more disagreeable about this decision is the reasoning. If nobody actually trained wrestling anymore and if it wasn't a competitive sport with individuals from many different nations having a chance to medal, that's one thing, but simply pointing to tv ratings really makes me angry. At least they are honest about the fact that the IOC only cares about money anymore, but that's about the nicest thing I can say about them...
