i guess new zealand won a rugby tournament. Although no one at my office talked about it or even knew about it so i guess it wasnt any big event

actually in australia rugby is not a popular sport. It is probably ranked number 5 or 6 in terms of popularity, so for someone from New Zealand trying to prove how big they are it doesnt make much of an impact on most of the population.

The better side won. end of story. please get over it and watch the great teams play out to find out who really is the best in the world. I am glad that Japan is now in the top 10 teams in the world as they are still in it. go japan.

The main difference is that Football is a flowing sport where the action happens quickly. On the other hand Rugby is a stop-start sport which has only the one direction of play

Posted in: FIFA, don't ignore the Blunder in Bloemfontein See in context

it is a little strange comparing FIFA to Rugby League. I mean Rugby League is a minor sport and it is always easier to introduce things in sports that most people dont care about. I am sure if they introduced it in Football there would be quite a lot of debate.

I think that if they had been given the point, then Germany wouldve come out really strong in the final period of the game. it was lucky for England Germany wasn't trying too hard because they already had the game wrapped up.

Posted in: Germany, Argentina advance in games marred by refereeing errors See in context

To all those who think it wouldn't have made a difference if that goal had been correctly awarded...

At 2-1 down we had an attacking free kick and threw everybody forward. We lost possession, Germany countered and it was 3-1. Moments later it was 4-1. Do you think that, had the game been level at 2-2, England would have thrown so many men forward for a free kick?

We didn't just lose because of the refereeing but to suggest it didn't make a difference to the final result is either naieve at best.

Please get over it. you guys lost so why do you keep thinking that it would've made a difference. Germany were so much better it was a laugh to watch the English play. I couldn't believe the last goal when everyone could see what was going to happen except for the English players walking down and not covering their men.

I don't know why everyone is upset. the far better team won which is good for football. the Germany team were sensational with great teamwork. the England players didn't work together at all when attacking. they all tried to do it by themselves. the disallowed goal didn't change the result at all. i am looking forward to going to the pub and listen to the English cry into their beers. hahaha

Posted in: England needs Rooney to hit form against Germany See in context

actually Germany won by 3 goals. So in the end the disallowed goal didnt change the result. It was a good game, but the far better team won which is always a fair result. The goals scored by Germany were the result of great teamwork and skill. This was something that England lacked.

good on him. at least it is a step up from the scottish league which only has 2 teams which have any hope. good to see the J-League attracting super players.

Posted in: Okada confident Japan can reach World Cup semifinals See in context

actually japan is one of the strongest teams in asia so that should hold them in good stead against the other teams from other continents. i guess a lot of people will be eating their words when japan does progress to the semi-final stage.

Posted in: Japan baseball eyes national team for money See in context

The simple fact is that baseball is not able to keep supporters once they see more exciting and international sports. It is not the most exciting sport to watch and that is putting it mildly. They only played it because america played it. Now japan is becoming more international and therefore sports fans have moved to Footbal.

Posted in: ICHIHASHI ARRESTED BY POLICE IN OSAKA See in context

I am pretty sure that is the way it happens in most other countries. A criminal is spotted by the public and they contact the police. Japan is the same so stop blaming the police for letting him go. He has probably sat next to you on the train and you didnt do anything.

Congratulations to the japanese police force. they have done a terrific job. It is quite funny that all the people who never had a good thing to say about the police are on here thinking they were the ones who found him. In the end it was the japanese police with the help of concerned japanese citizens. Remember it was not a foreigner who helped but the fantastic people of japan. Well done. Also had to have a laugh at the guy before who admitted he has been locked up in japan and then says all bad things about the police. Well they caught you so they cant be all bad.

Of course he would say that to try to get some people thinking it will be a success. I was at the game and everyone i spoke to after the game said it wasn't that good. It will be difficult to get people to like rugby if that is what every game is like. a very boring spectacle.

I will be watching rugby for the first time. I hope that they have instructions on how the game is played otherwise not many people will know what is happening. also most of my japanese friends dont know about the game. I guess they arent promoting the game to japanese people. The only people who will be there will be australians and new zealanders i expect. should be easy to find a seat then.

I am from australia and will be watching a rugby game for the first time. I have spoken to a lot of japanese and they dont really know about the game. i will be surprised if many people go to the game. Hope the weather is good and that might get a few more people to the game. I also hope they have explanations about the rules before the game starts. should be interesting anyway.

Posted in: Japan coasts to 5-0 win over Togo See in context

What a great win for Japan. They have handed out 2 big thrashings in the last week. They are really getting ready to peak at the right time. You can see how well they are playing now. They have some big stars who play in Europe now, so they will do very well next year in South Africa.

Posted in: SANZAR decides on preferred Super rugby expansion See in context

actually i think that rugby really struggles in perth. I dont see them ever being competitive. remember the perth reds from the nrl? they didnt last long. they should look at bringing in more teams from nz. thats where the fans are.

Posted in: Japan, Australia draw 0-0 in World Cup qualifier See in context

I went to the game and enjoyed it thoroughly. both teams were giving their best. you can see why there is such a big rivalry. probably becoming one of the biggest in world football.

Posted in: Manchester United arrives in Japan See in context

why dont West Ham buy some players then?If they are wanting to be competitive, that is what they should do. Actually Manchester United are successful because they did that and now they are the most famous team in the world. Everyone in the world knows how good they are and wants to watch them play.

i think you are stating years way before anyone was born. 1965 and 1923. i am having a big laugh. actually jleague teams are quite strong. i have no doubt they would be competitive in europe. i think west ham will be 2nd division next year. just my opinion. you dont have to respond to this comment. good luck

Posted in: Adelaide beats Waitakere in Club World Cup opener See in context

I stand corrected. Actually i dont think West Ham have ever won anything. Let alone even being able to qualify for the Champions League. They are a second rate team. Most J-League teams could probably beat them.

Posted in: Adelaide beats Waitakere in Club World Cup opener See in context

actually if West ham had won the European championship they would have qualified for the tournament. The Club World Cup invites the winners of the different confederations to participate. If you want to find out how West Ham can qualify next year you can go to the website. Then you can tell the players the rules. They might be able to make it for next year. Good Luck

why even bother having a rugby world cup as it is only played in a few countries. I hope japan doesn't get it as it will be embarrasing for the organizers when they have to give away free tickets to schoolkids.

I think that they are already running out of countries that are interested in rugby. So they are pulling names from a hat. there are only a few countries where they would be able to find people to watch it.
