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.

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.

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.

Most of the judokas engaged were n°1 or 2 in the world so the disappointment is quite understandable, if you don't reflect about it you're bound to repeat the same mistakes. It's not about physical strength or any other BS excuse. They just failed to support the pressure. Gotta fix that. Good luck to them.

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.

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.
