2012 Worlds Video

That was pretty cool until the last part. I think ending a compilation video with images of people celebrating a victory by referee error really reflects badly on our sport. I didn't even feel too strongly about the incident at the time (mistakes happen, bjj organization needs to mature, Galvao overreacted initially but handled it well after he cooled off, etc . . .), but seeing it in a video celebrating the event was a real downer. The video has an earlier clip where you see the loser unhappy with the ref, which I think was good to see, because that is part of the game. But seeing so much of that particular incident really made me sad about the poor state of sportsmanship in bjj in the public sphere.

Hmm...had no idea of the circumstances surrounding the last scene. What's the back story?
