PROS ONLY: Coach Protest "White Flag" Rule Implemented
Grapplers Quest is trying to take the sport of Grappling to television and to offer professional competitors, many of which who make supplemental income at shows nationwide, the fairest competition experience possible. Mistakes can happen, we are ALL human, but errors can occur, although few and far between, we are hoping to end any potential controversies and be able to create the ideal scenario, as one very high level pro grappler told me personally, "3 refs, judo-style would make the perfect grappling referee pro experience possible", well, we're making it happen!
First, we've implemented, a 3 Referee Team System for ALL Pro divisions (read more: http://www.grapplersquest.com/blogs/briancimins/3-referee-referee-team-a...) and now the COACH'S WHITE FLAG protest, which will be allowed to used ONCE throughout the entire Pro bracket, prelims to finals, once used, it's done, so choose to use it VERY wisely.
Getting a Grapplers Quest television has been a goal of mine since 1996 when the dream began. Improvements are necessary for improvement and we're proud to keep pushing amateur and professional grappling circuits worldwide to the next level, where they deserve to be. We'll be able to keep the BEST Grapplers and Submission fighters in the World, because we'll off them the fairest set of rules, referees and competition experience on the planet - GUARANTEED!
