    Last week the head football coach at Nihon University ordered a 'hit' on the quarterback of Kwansei Gakuin University during a game. It was a ridiculously late, ridiculously dirty hit. The story dominated national news for several days.

    The kid who made the hit held a national press conference and apologized to the nation. The head coach did the same, but his apology and excuses were transparent bullshit. He has been canned.

    Dirty football player says coaches told him to ‘crush’ the QB:The Asahi Shimbun

    I read about that The Japanese are pretty hard core about honor in sports. Had a Sumo who got in a public fight some time back and did the same.

    Actually, he was forced to retire. I think he went back to Mongolia.
