No deal was paid or sponsored but I guess it's way too tempting to post a negative dump when you have it in mind. Of course, apart from Yoshida none is up to playing in the Premier ... since he's the only one actually in the league.

Win and it's okay, lose and you're "overated". What a sad approach to sports.

What's up with the "promoting" thing ? Wrestling doesn't need to be promoted. The Olympics has been a way to way to showcase sports which don't get media attention all year long and now they are taking these away for the sake of money. Seriously, golf is in when wrestling is out. It's terrible.

Amazing that people considers playing in the NPB as "blowing his arm". He's going to play in front of loving fans, in meaningful games at a very young age.

And it's not like american pitchers never get Tommy John surgeries, of course there is no injury in the MLB, only in Japan.

What's the problem with the fights taking place in Japan ? The US and Japan are where the boxers can take the best paychecks due to the good television deals. It's good that these guys can make a living.

The same Iwakuma who signed for 1m$ with the Mariners. Your bashing never gets old (wait it gets).

Here's Passpo Shojo Hiko release more than a year ago : http://www.nautiljon.com/images/cd/00/10/shojo_hiko_34801.jpg?1304871195

Nice copy of Passpo's concept.

While I'm glad he's going to follow his dream, you can't reproach the NPB for wanting to keep the best players and make the best league possible, you would do the same. He wouldn't "wear out" his arm, he would professionally pitch ina meaningful league. Would you excuse a soccer player if he were taking it easy waiting for a transfer in the Premier League ? I don't think so.

That said, good luck to him, that will be exciting to watch.

Crystalyle > A japanese crowd, hostile ? Never seen that in my life. The US girls even brought a "thank you" banneer to the people of Hiroshima because they felt very supported.

Japan's international results show that its league is absolutely good. Great matches between teams that both want to win, there's no real disparity between all those squads so everybody (well at least 6-8 teams) have a shot at the title and it's less boring than all those championships where the richest clubs battle for the top.

well in the end they got it right, Ebinuma landed a good action that should have been awarded. Too bad we went through that painful experience for Cho.

Posted in: Kagawa? It's Honda who drives Japan See in context

Honda plays like a possessed man these days and he backs up all his talk like nobody else in the past. He just wants to leave Russia to take his career to another level, nothing wrong with that, we only live once. Enjoy every second of him because we will miss him so much when he retires.

Probably because you don't love boxing enough, the small guys don't gas after two rounds and produce the most technical fights.

Funny what can a loss to provoke ... Was the USWNT criticized this way when they lost to Japan the last two times they faced ? That's dumb. They lost, they will learn from their mistakes and try to do better next time. Don't burn what you used to love.

Honda is the man. When he's injured, the team struggles. Since he's back ? Two wins and nine goals scored.

Honda only scored two goals and made one assist out of the 4 goals Japan scored at the last World Cup, this is exactly what you calls a choker.

If Kashiwa beat Jeonbuk and Guanghzou beat Buriram, they will each have 10 points, one more than Jeonbuk. So it's not over yet.

Posted in: Japan counting on Darvish to rescue pride, bragging rights See in context

People all over the world are racist, it's a brand new information really ... The big picture is rather that Darvish is a beloved pitcher all over Japan and it's completely normal he has to deal with a lot of medias, this is what feeds him, being constantly in the spotlight. You can't take only the good parts of the job, that's what being a public figure means.

Why are you creating problems when there's none. Every team wins and loses. They are under 23 years old kids, there's always room for improvement. Congrats to them, they can only do better than the previous generation.
