Anyone else amazed how fast Dressel is still swimming? The guy apparently doesn’t get tired nor does he need any down time from the games

F***…DC had its best match in a while and got third ripped out by a stupid skins jackpot rule…

I feel the need to expand on this…
DC got off to a late start in season 1 recruiting – clawed their way to three 3rds in a tough schedule.
Season 2, its star swimmers and BOTH season 1 captains missing, and its star swimmer departing to the super team, fought their way through and we see many breakouts in the roster.
Season 3, fighting with issues like retirements, and then having to work with a “draft” where star teams still kept most of their core, got their way to finally show us what they are capable of.
Then proceed to get it ripped away by a nonsense rule implemented to protect star teams.

Agree with all of it, though from what I understand of the points in the skins, DC would have ended up 4th regardless.

Without Jackpots:
Rd 2
Mack (DC) 7 points;
Di Liddo (AQC) 5 points.

Rd 3
Mack (DC) 7 points.

Total
That gives 14 extra points for DC and 5 extra points for AQC. DC still ends up fourth. I might be miscalculating something though.

It’s a little too early but I’m high on Ress getting a spot in 100 back for world championships.
