Taken from the most recent Copa Podio thread I don't mean to single out ThatBJJGuy because he's alone in thinking this way(for example there are multiple youtube channels that film matches and only upload them if the match ends in submission many people point to the lack of finishes to explain why bjj isn't spectator friendly etc). I love a good submission as much as the next guy but I've never understood this line of thinking. Not only are cool sweeps and guard passes exciting but in a lot of matches the finish is the least exciting part. As cool as watching Buchecha jump on a leg from out of nowhere watching someone spend 3 minutes handfighting to finish the back choke is incredibly boring - usually much more so than the series of events that led to getting the back in the first place. I'm curios to hear what everyone else thinks. Am I crazy or are submissions not as big of a deal as we make them out to be(at least from an entertainment perspective)?
