2015 US Sumo Open Footage on Fite TV App

Recommended Posts

In traditional fashion of the footage of the US Sumo Open being available for public consumption nearly a year after it happens for whatever reason, the 2015 U.S. Sumo Open is now available as part of an app called Fite TV: http://www.fite.tv/

What makes me displeased, to say the least, is that they refer the the coverage as "comprehensive" when it is the exact opposite. It's a 30-minute digest that ONLY shows the first-place matches in four weight divisions. With how short a sumo bout is, for 30 minutes, that's pretty ridiculous, especially when it means completely cutting out the bronze medal winners and not even mentioning them by name when you use clips of their matches for interstitial filler (yes, I am a little bitter because I am one of those bronze medal winners. Seriously, not even a mention of "by the way this guy won the bronze?").

Honestly, the best thing about this is I had never heard of the Fite App before and it's pretty cool. They have both downloadable and live-streaming events for MMA, pro wrestling, and various other fight sports. They were just now live-streaming the Judo Grand Prix in Tblisi, Georgia. For people like me (and I can assume most of you), that's pretty neat!

Yeah, I got 3rd place in the men's lightweight division, and one was one of only two American men's participants to even medal in the darn thing, but I guess that wasn't enough to make it into the broadcast beyond a second-long clip in a montage.
