Hiroshima has been famous for their unique goal performances, and they sent out a message on this day, as the players formed the characters [3.11] on the pitch to express their joy for scoring a goal on the 3rd anniversary of the great Tohoku disaster.
How imprudent of these guys
And the opponent came from behind to win, right? That's so lame ww
This looked like a bad joke more than anything
There's something wrong with this
Hey, are these guys farking around?
"expressed their joy" wwwww
Why'd they do something that's so hard to react to
I'm appalled by this...
Somoene should've stopped them...
Not a single person in the team thought about how inappropriate this was?
The "Japanese only" incident.
The "Anti-Reysol" incident.
The "3.11" incident.
Hey J-League, get your act together.
I honestly felt appalled after seeing the picture.
J-League seems to be in a lot of trouble these days.
They didn't have bad intentions.
It's just that they're hopelessly stupid.
That's all there is to it.
They probably didn't have any bad intentions, but it's a huge problem if they didn't see this backlash coming...
Honestly speaking, even their fans would think that they were just playing around.
To think that Takahagi's grandma who hails from Fukushima was never found again...
I don't get why they can even grin here.
And Takahagi lost his grandma in the disaster so the Sanfrecce supporters will defend this, but that prayer stance actually makes it look more like a joke.
If they really wanted to show that they're mourning, then
- black armbands
- prayer circle and a moment of silence before the match
There were a lot of other methods.
It's not about how the rest of the world sees them, but how the actual victims do.
I think they can't do anything about it if people actually think that they've gone too far with this (^^;)
I understand their feeling of wanting to do something to commemorate 3/11.
But they way they did it was so immature, and it just backfired on them.
I'm sorry, but I don't think that this was the appropriate thing to do for the victims who were hit by a disaster of this magnitude.
