    4 leagues for me senseiman. 2 central leagues and 2 pacific leagues with at least 4 teams in each. Then you open up Japan baseball to new franchises. And then do away with that ridiculous rule of the league winner getting a 1 game advantage in the division final.

    Oh and thanks to the moderator for pointing out very clearly that Kyojin received a 1 game win just for the sake of being the season winners and despite the fact that nobody else awards a 1 game advantage just because you won the season division. I was probably being literal and factual, as opposed to the "ghost" 1 game that Kyojin won. In reality it was 4-0. For the fat cat TV execs and the J commission, it was 4-1 apparently.

    Come on. And by the way, the Tigers whitewashed Kyojin 4-0 not 4-1. In Tokyo.

    Athletes won’t be forced to join Team Scotland, so some may prefer to stick with the status quo in Team GB if they can, as the easier and possibly safer option.

    What angers me is the current governments racist stance on immigration. If the Scots vote for independence why should they be given a free pass to remain British? There are immigrants who wish to live in the UK with their British partners but cannot because of the current rules on earnings and nationality. These people want to live in the UK but cannot. And yet we have a large pro-independence movement in Scotland slagging-off everything to do with British history and parliament, yet the British government are pleading with them to stay! So the current government plead with people who do not want to be British, yet slam the door on those who do. And it is based purely on race. Romanians - no thanks. Polish - stay away. Scots - please don't go. if they vote Yes on Thursday then make the 750,000 Scots living in England return back to their glorious independent nation and then apply for British visas just like everyone else has to.

    As for British sport not being so glorious without Scots, do me a favour. You have quoted 2 examples (Ferguson, Hoy). And Ferguson was famous for managing an ENGLISH club. I can quote you Clough and Wiggins immediately back in return.

    My advice to everyone is to fully support the (slightly) cheaper airlines with 1 stop between London and Japan. Finnair, Austrian, and Swiss can offer some good fares and you can even support Finnish, Austrian, and German/ Swiss tourism as they allow you to stop off for a stay.

    I can't help feeling that Virgin have bottled-it because when a date is not so busy they have more fuel to pay for from London to Tokyo in comparison to upfront fuel costs between London and Detroit. Profit margins ahead of customers.

    But there are only 4 carriers who fly London to Tokyo direct? BA, ANA, JAL, and Virgin, and they are always full at popular times and they are always expensive? I have no sympathy for these airlines. They charge too much and as soon as their profit margin falls they pull out of the market. Don't tell me that Virgin's London to Tokyo route does not pull any profit at all. They are finding bigger profits in Australia and short-haul low cost routes, they have been milking customers for years, and so they decide to pull out altogether. No respect for their historic customers.

    And in one fell swoop the Japanese teach the Europeans, UEFA, and FIFA a lesson in how to swiftly act upon racism in football with no pussyfooting punitive fines. Are you listening UEFA?

    But the writer is talking about a long history of failures in international tournaments. I don't think being a couch analyst for a couple games will suffice. Otherwise the FA would have solved it a long time ago.

    I find these knee-jerk reactions comical. Maybe some of these posters should learn a little more about football history. England are ranked 5th in the all-time FIFA World Cup rankings. The reached the quarter-finals in 2006 and 2002 and reached the semi-finals in 2000. The y reached the quarter-finals of Euro 2012 and 2004. So my couch analysis of this very recent failure stands up to the incorrect analogy of a long history of failure. Only 8 different nations have won the World Cup since 1930 so England's long history stands up.

    English don't do sports well, name a sport they are world champions in, right thought so.

    They had their heyday back in 66 and have won nothing since in world football, not likely to win anything else soon either. The USA has more chance of winning anything in football than eng does.

    Their rugby team just got trounced 3 nill in a series and often get beaten by weaker nations like wales france and Ireland, their cricket team used to get smashed all over by the aussies and indian teams, anything else these English men cant do ?

    12 rimes European club champions (4 times since 1999)/ Mo Farah reigning 5k and 10k world champion and double Olympics Gold 5k and 10k Golds/ Current Womens Keirin, Sprint, & Team Pursuit World Champions/ 2012 and 2013 Tour de France winners/ Current Mens Keirin & Track Points World Champions/ current IBF Super Middleweight, IBF Bantamweight, WBA Bantamweight, WBA Junior Featherweight World Champions/ 3rd in the most recent 2012 Olympics medal table with 29 gold medal winners.

    Must be rubbish at sport.

    This getting far too deep into what is a very simple reason. This coach (Hodgson) made tactical errors. Simple as that.

    You don't survive a group stage by playing attacking attractive football with young players. Not against Italy and Uruguay. Hodgson went to Brazil saying that we did not expect to win anything and talking up his young attacking squad. Another mistake. Draws against Italy and Uruguay after levelling in both games would have left England in a strong position to qualify.

    England played 3 strikers (Sturridge, Rooney, and Welbeck) plus an attacking winger (Sterling) leaving only 2 midfielders totally isolated. The only cover for Baines at left back was a striker (Rooney). The Italians took advantage and Hodgson still didn't get Milner on. Tactically naive.

    English football is fine. Sturridge, Sterling, Wilshere, Oxlade, Hart, Walcott, Townsend, Barkley. All great young players that any country would want.

    What a cover up. If Coulson was found guilty then so should she. She was his boss.

    "Make no doubt about it, Roy is the man to take us forward. We appreciate what he has done for us".

    Make no doubt about it, Roy took us straight back home after only 2 group games.

    "As a team we can feel we are getting better".

    God help us when they feel they are getting any worse....

    1. The (managerial) inability to comprehend that 2 draws against Italy and Uruguay would have placed England in a good position after 2 games. England had the ability to draw level in both games, but like a group of eager boys in the school playground, went for wins in both games and were caught wide open at the back.

    Cannot believe that Hodgson ends up with the worst England World Cup record since the 1950's, and gets a vote of confidence for the upcoming Euros!? A big mistake in not taking Ashley Cole and also in letting John Terry retire.

    And so it appears that the general consensus here is that Kearney did not deserve to score more points than Uemura after so many mistakes. And thankfully DeShazo, Slump, Presto, Serrano, and Trevor appear to have witnessed exactly what I saw.

    It is also unfortunate that the overwhelming opinion is positioned alongside a very well-known pro-Korean disliker of all things Japanese who is still permitted to troll on here. Kearney did not deserve to finish above Uemura, plain and simple and based on common sense. Sore loser?? So every time someone expresses an opinion regarding a poor sporting decision (the history of sport is littered with scoring mistakes) then they are immediately labelled a sore loser? Maybe you would give in far too easily and accept a wrong decision, but not me my friend, regardless of any Korean 'sore loser' jibes.

    How on earth did Uemura get less points than Kearney and lose the bronze? Kearney's run was awful and was sliding off the moguls unbalanced. So how could Kearney be awarded more points than Uemura? I get the impression that certain big-name stars are awarded a minimum number of points regardless of their (poor) performance. Watch the run again and then tell me it was worthy of an Olympic bronze medal.

    Why is this not the headline news? And why are no posters interested enough to comment? Sad.

    You won't be a lawyer.

    I guess that makes you wrong for the second time. Never pass judgement without any evidence.

    Kim Jong-Un's dictatorship family have an absolutely appalling human rights record for abuses against their own people. Maybe you should check Amnesty International's site to read some of the horrific stories about life in North Korea.

    And whilst you bang on about freedom of speech, you have given absolutely no consideration of someone with some media influence (Rodman) publicly backing such a regime as if everything there is fine. Fans of Rodman could believe such statements.

    So maybe instead of incorrectly stating that certain posters would never become lawyers, maybe spend some time reading Amnesty's accounts of young children in North Korea, orphaned and left to rot in the street. Or maybe of the whole families sentenced to labour camp jails because of a family members 'crimes'.

    Or I guess you are not going to give any credence to the work that Amnesty International do..?
