    I’ve been wrestling all my life and if I was speaking about someone’s takedown I would say “nice shot”. Now I hear it all the time (Joe Rogan for example)” that was an excelent shoot”. Honestly people, does that sound right?

    Basketball for example, if someone where to be standing at the free throw line, they would be shooting the ball, but you would say nice shot! NOT NICE SHOOT. Right? Just wondering what you guys all thought!

    I totally agree with you. It just sounds stupid.

    Hi Lisa,
    I guess you’re commenting on my post where I compliment you. You have to be careful…I’ve hung out with guys who’ve been in boxing gyms all their lives, but I wouldn’t necessarily quote them as experts in the English language, you know?

    Fastest shoots…Is shoot a noun or a verb? I’d say it’s a noun. As in “Great throw,” as opposed to, “Great thrown”. If you really want to get into it, in, “You have one of the fastest shoots,” the verb is “have.” If “shoot” were used as a verb you’d have to say “fastly” shoot because fast would then be an adverb (but then “quickly” would be a more appropriate averb to use..)

    To argue the other side, I think when you are speaking colloquially, words find their way into common usage, and some might consider it somewhat pretentious to be grammatically correct. So maybe the question is which is grammatically correct versus which is more appropriate colloquially. Or to take it a step further, does the appropriate colloquialism transfer to different art, specifically MMA?

    -Tanya

    Tanya-
    I’m not really directing it at you about saying fastest shoot, but it did bring it back to my attention about how the word should be properly used. I live with a house of wrestlers and we always coment about it. We disagree with calling it a shoot. As far as proper “verbs and nouns” go, I have no clue. It just sounds funny to me. Sorry for sounding disrespectful. We were all just curiouse what other people think about it.

    In my gym you “shoot a good double leg” and you “have a fast shot”.
