    WTF is the story with the dude in the thong??????? If I was the ref I would have run a mile.

    If I was his daughter, I would have had him arrested.

    The bloke holds an official position via the national coaching setup.

    If I was there with my daughter he woild have got a complimentary mma intro.

    If I was the ref I would hsvr disqualified the player on the mat he was associated with for her side coach attempting to interfere with the match.

    The two girls with the short, tight dresses responsible for leading out the competitors appeared distracting enough without the thong guy.

    Was the venue at the beach?

    This is the level Judo in Australia has sunk to..........

    Not funny.
    No entertainment value.
    Children present.

    Organisers and Officials should resign immediately !!

    The person who posted the video on YouTube wrote the following as a description of the video:


    This is how judo is at the moment in Australia. A handful of people rule the sport as if it's their family business, putting themselves above all rules and common decency. The streaker in this video was at the tournament in the capacity of being a National Referees Commissioner. The speaker (the big boss's son) was putting individuals, officials and referees down for "entertainment". Anyone could buy a ticket to this public sporting event, including families with children. Sponsors were apparently leaving the venue in protest.

    God help us all.

    I don't see anything wrong with this as long as they use yellow and blue tatami and there are judoka on the tatami with blue gi ...

    Are those dining tables in the background? Looks like a cabaret. I'd be pretty disappointed if I had trained for something with this little gravitas.

    Bingo! I knew he looked a lot like Judoratt.

    Card girls, card boys ... beer ... loud, annoying music ... spot lights ... an incredibly overpaid announcer ... these are the ways to improve judo by making it more exciting!!!

    Some one needs to get this guy's name and bio if he is associated with Australia judo.
