    Thanks to Cyclone Fanatic

    for putting Jon Reader on the main page. We rarely see wrestling covered on the front page. Jon is a true CYCLONE and class act. THANKS AGAIN! He deserves it.

    Re: Thanks to Cyclone Fanatic

    Do "class acts" flip off people on a national stage?

    Perhaps the term has been redefined...




    Part of this fanbase is like the parable of the blind men and the elephant.

    Who knew?

    I suspect it was someone's fantasy, but I saw talk of Reader and Bubba Jenkins flipping Cael the bird in tandem. Again...I don't think it really happened, but Bubba especially would certainly have reason to.

    There was a post about them figuratively flipping him the bird... Reader by talking about how much he likes KJ as a coach, and Bubba by saying that Sanderson forced him out. Not that they actually flipped him the bird.

    Perhaps you should take your own advice and only talk about things you actually have knowledge on.

    You are correct. I was based off the interviews. Neither actually flipped Cael the bird. It goes back to people not knowing all the facts and posting anyway.

    Re: Thanks to Cyclone Fanatic

    Classic!

    Someone on another thread likens Reader's comments about how much he enjoys wrestling for Coach Jackson as a figurative "flipping of the bird" to Cael, and now people think that Reader actually flipped off Cael at the national tournament.

    How long before someone demands to see the photos!

    Hey AClone - I understand the confusion, but, rest assured, Class Act = Jon Reader.

    Whoa, whoa, whoa. I posted the post being talked about. What I said was I thought it would be cool to see Reader and Jenkins standing side by side flipping the bird to Cael, not that it actually happened. It didn't actually happen.


    It's all snark from here on out

    I knew what you mean't; it just didn't take somebody long to take it out of context and throw a negative spin on it. No problem with your post. Jon is a CLASS ACT!
