  1. http://www.imdb.com/video/imdb/vi3806004761/ take a look at this trailer for the documentary "freakonomics", at 1min 23s into the trailer there are some sumo and some guy talking about what I understand is yaocho. I thought it was interesting, I think I will do some filesharing when the time is right... ;-)

    Olympic medalist gives up medal?

    Im from sweden and I have some insight in this matter i think, many of you are out there Judging long before knowing anything about the matter it seems. To sum it up; He thought he was robbed and got tired of the silly rules/calls and the corrupt wrestling. He protested, he wants a change in the, in his mind ( and many others), corrupt and rotten wrestling world. In this case and in many cases in ozumo, to hell with "the spirit of sportmanship" or alike. Why stand there like a mindless fool and just accept the charades. When sports are corrupt and you are getting robbed, thus there are no sportmanship from the beginning, you might say there are no sport. I like sports and sportmanship, but i do not like being robbed. Not in wrestling, sumo or no other sport for that matter.

    Of course he is selling the videos! Just because it is disguised in form of an donation it doesn mean he isnt, it is just the same as selling it! And just because he makes no actuall "profit" (and how do you know that?). Many buisneses makes no profit or even goes minus but they are selling stuff anyway( its bad to compare him with a buisness, because he isnt so "profit" talk must be taken lightly). he gets money!And if he choose to spend it on bandwith instead of pizza that his choice. I cant imagine that he makes it or brakes it depending on the donations and if thats the case just dont upload the movies! I want to add that I dont really care if he wants to get money just because, its just not smart to ask for money because increasing risk of being shut down that will follow. As me and other people mentioned before. So to sum it up, at the minimum: info-sumo dont want to pay extra for bandwith, instead he choose to at the lowest increase the risk quite significant of men in suit take the vids away and making it much harder for anyone in the future to upload sumo vids. with that said, some high profile matches day 3-nagoya basho 2008: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t4kLETupufw
