I don't feel sorry for them, it's their fault for complying with the dumb rule.

Third season?

So what’s stopping you from cheering? Are they going to have security evacuate the stadium due to “loud noises”?

Go along to their next game. Change their minds with a rousing chant. I’m sure you’ll be a great success.

Tigers fans are more worried about winning games than this. I know, I am one of them. Horrible season so far.

I’m amazed at the extent to which Japanese people will comply with senseless orders.

There is literally nothing to cheer for. What an awful start to the season. I've never seen anything like it. And I'm a long-time Mets fan. So, I've seen some bad seasons in my time.

Why not just shout at the tv while it's switched off? Far less hassle than traipsing out to a stadium to watch people throw a ball around. A lot cheaper too.

I could imagine how hard it must have been to watch Big Boss come out and perform but you had to be silent. The cheers that come from the stands are fun to be apart of. Hope we can get back to it like the olden days.

Didn't Japan's death rate go up last year?
