That is f* up!!! How the hell can it be a fair fight if they cheat like that? Even the dude who was handed the victory can't feel good about that. That Kayom dude is one darn cheat! I saw him coach another fight as well and this guy is worse then the Braz coaches.

How come none of the organizers have nothing to say? Hey! Pudgy boy Luke! What gives man? Your comp is just shit or what?

Anonymous said...

No need for insults and disrespect.

Yeah, some of the referees are instructors/coaches. There's not enough refs to go around. It happens, and Luke tried to enlist the help of other purple belts and above to officiate. Give him a break.

Its all about money now. None of these guys have any real love for the sport, it's love of money that runs the show. Offcourse some lone practitioner from a backwards country can't win over a disciple of one of the superstars, and even on their home turf. The honor is long gone, so is the pride. It's all about money now.

A preliminary list of all the shit they pulled:

1. Gave away wins to fighters they favored.
2. Changed rules when they wanted.
3. Refs followed their own rules and awarded penalties and advantages at their own behest.
4. Allowed coaching inside the pens, but only those who were buddies of the organizers.
5. Refs were coerced into changing their decision by the coaches.
6. Was one set of rules for lesser known competitors and one set for the favoured.

This comp and it's organizers have lost all credibility and should not be allowed to be a sanctioned body.

Man, such bitterness.

I lost too. Twice! It happens and the refs did the best they could. *sigh*

Oldboy said...

Fuck respect! Respect is earned and can be quickly lost too! I have no respect for the organizers if this is true. Then it is just a sham. Failure to organize and failure to keep cheaters unchecked is not an excuse. The whole festering boil should be reported and be dealt with accordingly. Stuff like this is what ruins the game.

Anonymous said...

Bitterness?
Picture this: a guy trains long and hard, saves up money to be able to go to the comp, the one comp he can afford to go to this year. Then he is robbed of his win just because a ref is a fucking cheat or because his coach is a fucking fake superstar or because the ref just don't like your face. How the hell would that make you feel?

Anonymous said...

It's one thing to say mistakes were made, and entirely something else to say people purposely cheated. Looking at the categories, all the schools were broadly represented in the awarding of medals.

Is it right to blame the oversight of a referee on the organizer of the event? Was it the plan of the organizer and volunteers to short of staff? Things happen, and this is still a new event.

Dude! The food, medals and t-shirts were AWESOME!!

I would feel terrible! Absolutely. But that's if everything you say is accurate. That's assuming way too much about the states of mind and intentions of other people. Yeah, things could be better, but I don't think there was any intent to "rob" people. Losing sucks, especially if it was a mistake on the part of someone else.

It was clearly a sweep at 2:00 for the yellow shirt competitor, but the black shirt competitor also should have gotten sweep points at 1:23 and 7:35. If you start from guard, even momentarily when transitioning from an ankle lock attempt, come out on top and maintain top position for 3 sec it is a sweep. Difficult to ref, esp with fast lighter weights.

No call for personal attacks against refs volunteering their time or coaches chearing competitors whatever the excuse, much less for a match where the better competitor ended up winning anyway.

This.

Anonymous said...

no one volunteer to ref. the refs did not do it for free. they got discount or some sort of other perks for staffing the events. One of Kayoom's student, who helped organizing the tournament, even got promoted at the seminar (which was a photo session half of the time).

Anonymous said...

Fuck Kayoom! The guy is a fake. Even his Dare fight was works.

Anonymous said...

Man, what do you guys have against Adam Kayoom. He did his best officiating and coaching. He's not a crook. Malaysian, but not a crook.

Ray Elbe said...

Adam Kayoom is one of the founders of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in Thailand.

He has integrity, and anyone questioning that is an idiot.

Anonymous said...

during the rules meetings Kayoom used "fuck and shit" while explaining the rules.

then during the tournament, he made a public announcement about having respect for the ref because all the staff were getting cursed out by the audience and coaches for doing a shitty job.

an example of hypocrisy!

@Ray the Rat

You keep sucking Gayooms dick hoping something nice will come out?
Gayoom is a fraud, liar and a cheat.

Fuck you Ray! You have no idea what the fuck went that at the comp.

I remember that yellow shirt guy..my impression wasnt very great... he kept talking about himself and you could tell right away hes not a respectable man.

At least the yellow shirt identifies himself. The rest of you fuckers posting in here are just utter pussies!

Braz as in... Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu? Yeah man, those guys are the worst.

If you guys had an ounce of integrity of Prof. Kayoom, you would not be here, throwing shit around.

Oh, now I get it. "Snake" is the head instructor of Snake Pit Jiu Jitsu:

"Snake", are you trying to build hype for your school by contesting this particular match? Hmmmmm.... I'm wondering because you and all of your supporters on this forum either seem to be trying to discredit legitimate black belts like Adam Kayoom and Stephen Kamphuis or the BJJAT in general. These people seem to have a bit more experience than you, I must say. I'm wondering if this isn't just a clever way to get your school more attention.

No, "Snake" the intelligent BJJ player will recognize you for what you are- a blue belt that should have competed in the intermediate no-gi division. Instead, you ignorantly blame others for your loss because you decided to compete up a division.

Don't worry though, "Snake". I mean, really, if I'm ever in your neighborhood, I'd love to learn from a sniveling little blue belt twerp that can't even admit when he's lost, has to blame others for his defeat, and prefers to make himself look stupid on a public forum. Where do I sign up?

Ain't the internet great, "Snake"?

Anonymous said...

I mean no disrespect to blue belts by the previous statement. I wouldn't dare say "Snake" represents the rank appropriately.

Anonymous said...

"Gayoom is a fraud, liar and a cheat."

What do you have against Adam? Is it just his performance as a referee during this event? Because to say he cheated and lied is pretty serious, as opposed to merely making bad calls (which I'm not sure he did).

I'm sure Adam is on facebook. Why not contact him directly? What can anyone else say besides the refs involved?

Shut the fuck up you rotten little fruit before I find you and kill you. Who the fuck are you to criticize someone for having a legitimate gripe?

Fag.

Because the rather be rats. Filthy little rats.

LUKE said...

I think this has gone way past the point of constructive criticism and is best directed to those in charge of the referee portion of the Thailand Open.

The leading referees for our 2011 event:

Stephen Kamphuis (guest black-belt)
Mark Simmerman (local purple-belt)
Adam Kayoom (local black-belt)
