I am closing this as keep. I would quickly support with the sources mentioned here. They need to be in the article itself, not the talk page. JodyB talk 01:24, 9 July 2007 (UTC)

This article has been deleted twice recently, first for copyright issues, and then for being about a group and not specifying importance. I don't know about the first deletion, but the second one was unjustified. Bossaball is not a group. It gets 60000+ hits on Google--I'd say that makes it a sport worthy of a wikipedia article. Also, there a couple dozen links to this article from other wikipedia pages. Why break all those links? If you don't like the article, make it better. Rracecarr 15:17, 21 June 2007 (UTC)

Instead of just whinging that it's been deleted even though it's got 60,000+ google hits, why don't you try taking a few of those 60,000 websites and using them as sources to establish notability that can be verified? If you don't like the article being deleted, try fixing the problems that got it deleted instead of reposting it and/or complaining. Don't expect other people to be bothered helping establish notability and work on the article for you if you can't even be bothered to establish the most basic of notability yourself.

bossaball on tv news - Brazil[edit]

I found this page about bossaball appearing on 11 Brazilian tv channels/shows in January-February 2007 :

bossaball on tv in Brazil
   * TV SBT - Jornal SBT
   * TV Record - Fala Brasil
   * TV Record - Jornal Record
   * TV Record - São Paulo Record
   * TV Globo - Bom Dia São Paulo
   * TV Globo - Esporte Espectacular
   * Mar Esporte
   * Mar Litoral Record
   * S. Cecilia - Caderno Regional
   * TV Tribuna - Jornal Da Tribuna
   * TV Gazeta - Gazeta Esportiva

This links straight to an edited summary : bossaball on Brazilian tv epk 3 of these channels appear to be regional, but at least TV SBT, TV RECORD, and especially GLOBO TV are big networks. According to Rede Globo it is Latin America's biggest television network.

OK, may not be the most independent and reliable source for this to come from, but these tv channels and shows... they do tell us something about notability, I would say.

No they don't, because like you said is not independent. How are we supposed to be able to verify information when it's just a random list of meaningless TV stations? I'm still waiting to see a couple relaible sources being provided from these alleged '60,000+' sources google is supposed to turn up. Surely you can come up with a better source than a non-neutral website from all those? DarkSaber2k 09:05, 22 June 2007 (UTC)

These are some of the articles I've been able to google up. Articles in various languages from various sources. Some official.

Since I've been digging deeper into the google results, I don't think I can see any notability issues here.

For some reason I can't view any of these through my offices web filter, but on the face of it they look fine. I'll have a look at them properly when I've got a chance and offer any input I might have about them. I'd say that there are enough sources to remove the prod, and anyone still wishing the article was deleted can take it to AfD, where at least you have a chance to argue your case.
