    I was just reading this. Methinks judo is next. To me, taking out wrestling is like taking out the track events. They were all part of the ancient games and should stay there.

    i thought the biggest argument against judo was that it's "too similar to wrestling" so if they take out wrestling, then judo seems safer. of course that requires the use of *logic* by the IOC so there isn't much hope of that.

    I posted, but it disappered! Basically, said **** the IOC. These guys are idiots. Lets take a real sport, one person competing against another, no excuses, definate winner or loser. And replace it with dancing type "sports" that are judged by others and where there is no clear winner or loser. Basically going from sport into intertainment.

    Maybe slightly safer. The changes that were made to judo over the past 5 years were supposed to make it less like wrestling, hence the removal of leg techniques. They added Golf. GOLF!!!

    Someone needs to get their ass kicked. By a wrestler.

    The IOC should understand that the sports shared by the ancient and modern Olympics are a part of what links the two together.

    Beyond tradition, wrestling is widely considered one of the, if not the, oldest martial art. In my opinion, removing it from the games is like removing one of the legs on a chair.

    Wrestling IS the olympics. By removing wrestling, they are removing the olympics from the olympics. Wrestling will then leave, taking the olympics with it, leaving what? Dancing.

    With wrestling out of the picture could the rules of judo expand back to include the more wrestling like techniques?
    Considered in the abstract the boxing ring is an altar of sorts, one of those legendary spaces where the laws of a nation are suspended: inside the ropes, during an officially regulated three-minute round, a man may be killed by his opponent's hands but he cannot be legally murdered. Boxing inhabits a sacred space predating civilization; or, to use D.H. Lawrence's phrase, before God was love. If it suggests a savage ceremony or a rite of atonement it also suggests the futility of such gestures. For what possible atonement is the fight waged if it must shortly be waged again... and again? The boxing match is the very image, the more terrifying for being so stylized, of mankind's collective aggression; its ongoing historical madness.

    So, let's think about this for a moment ...

    News Item #1: Pope Benedict XVI announces his retirement.

    News Item #2: IOC announces the removal of wrestling from the Olympics.

    ... coincidence??

    Both organizations involved will likely soon announce that they've been bought by a certain firm famous for some recent acquisitions. Look for olympic golf caps and papal beanies to feature mouse ears in the near future.

    On a side note: the original spelling of "Disney" was "d'Isigny". Another reason to hate Normans, wherever they may land.
