For a long time I think people thought that his stage character and his actual personality were the same. I realize that there is a difference. Unfortunately, I seems like there are many cases in recent times, the two seem to be hard to distinguish a separation. Having never met the guy, I don't want to make any other judgments.

I find his comedy/videos funny. I dont agree with some of his decicions tho..

But I definitely think that the WJF is a good thing for juggling and thats all thanks to mr Garfield.

Lewis, this is a bit of an over-done topic. I don't think you are going to get a definitive answer. Many of the same people on the WJF are the same people on here. Not me, though, since I was banned from the WJF forum. ;-) There are many people that read all of the juggling forums. Most of the responses are going to fall between Joel's and Jaksi. Although, both of their answers are mixed. Art or Sport; Garfield=good, Garfield=evil; you might as well argue religion or politics.

True Dave. We all know how well those topics have been settled on this forum.

I agree with Jaski. Some of his comedy videos and routines are very funny. Some of his decisions... yeah, no comment.

I don't want to come off as a Garfield hater. I think the 2 best things he's ever done is, start the WJF which has done a lot towards pushing the level of technical juggling ability and his 2002 IJA routine; 'nuf said.

Did any of you know that you can be an artsy juggler and still go to You must be logged in to see this link.

So long as they try to understand at least some of the view points of sport jugglers and obviously not take the absoloute mickey out of sport juggglers/juggling.Very rarely is their an Anti-Anthony post up their-it's a shame that there are so many Anti-WJF posts here.

I can't wait for the time to come for someone to build a major juggling forum with a mixture of sport and creative AND anthony supporters as members. Well, theres always R.J but theirs often the odd sport art 'debate' (not argument) posted. then maybe people will realise that true juggling involves anything and everything. Yes, teir is such thing as juggling as a sport, art, and creative skill all in one. They don't divide ice skating into sport, art, creative skill-they just accept that it is and should always be them all. I apologise for getting involved in the debate myself however, I am not either either-I'm ALL! so STOP moaning about the WJF! STOP arguing over what we all enjoy!
Thank you...

Actually, they DO divide Ice skating into sport and art divisions.

I really agree with Adrian here!
It's so stupid to argue about this!
Juggling can be done as a sport and juggling can be done as an art!
It can be both!
Jason have said, many times, that juggling also can be an art, but the way he does it it is a sport! I don't see why juggling can't be a sport whe almost everything else is.
Juggling can be done as a sport and as an art!
I do juggling as both of them!

And about Jason's humour:
I love it! Hes videoes is really funny. The first time I saw one of his videoes and then later read a topic here about hes character in his video being his normal way of behaving, I just had to laugh. If you guys don't understand that its a character, then you guys have no humour at all! And please son't say anything about him if you haven't met him!

Jason has done so much for juggling, and will continiue with it a long time!

Sport or Art?
Sport or Art?
Sport or Art?
who cares....its juggling!

Jason Garfield may seem mean and self centerd at times but he is usually just tring to make a good point. I think Jason Garfield is actually a really nice guy and has a big heart.

sorry everyone I did not know that editing my post will bump it to the top!

Evan
