Too much over reliance on airconditioner - it’s making people’s bodies weaker.

we don’t have any air conditioners in our house, only fans, & our whole family are perfectly fine when venturing out into the hot summer days

I’m sure there’s more important issues that need funding than an overpaid, over pampered football team

"They're seeing racism and sexism because they want to see it. In this culture of perpetual outrage and victimhood, they're trying to absolve their star's behaviour by blaming something else."

Posted in: Australian newspaper defies criticism, reprints Serena Williams cartoon See in context

The world nowadays is way too sensitive & politically correct. People scrutinize everything & anything said these days, looking for a racist or sexist angle.

Lighten up & relax !!

I see that all the Williams supporters are pulling out the ‘racist’ or ‘sexist’ cards - pathetic

I wouldn’t hold your breath.

Gaijin are way down the pecking order when it comes to receiving the pension.

Posted in: Japanese baseball finds itself at a crossroads See in context

As a HS student in Australia, I played soccer, rugby & AFL during the winter, & cricket, tennis & golf during the summer.

This variety kept me interested in my main sporting passion - soccer.

Also the different skills learnt in the various sports complimented each other.

Why Japanese schools insist on students choosing one sport (or activity) & having them do it all year round, for three years is dumbfounding.

Too much of anything (including a good thing) makes you resentful, which in many cases can turn to hatred.

It was enjoyable to watch a game with no diving or rolling around like babies.

Both teams were hard but fair - other teams could learn from this game.

Posted in: Ref duped by Neymar play-acting, Mexico coach says See in context

Any player who writhes around in pain like Neymar does, should be made to leave the field for 5mins to receive treatment.

this would soon stop all the theatrics

Posted in: Subasic saves 3 in penalty shootout as Croatia beats Denmark to advance to quarterfinals See in context

For what it’s worth, this is my idea to try & avoid PKs.

In the event of extra time, each team has to withdraw one player every 5mins. This would continue until there are seven players left on each team.

Team tactics & strategy would come into play - who to take off & who to leave on.

Could someone please explain why so many teams are not wearing their main strips.

In almost every game, one team has worn a white strip.

eg. why didn’t Sth.Korea wear their red shirts against Sweden (blue) ?

’They earn every yen from their tough job’

Most of my English teacher friends spend most of their working day either chatting to each other on Line, or doing day trading.
