the term japs were used by americans during ww2 coz the entire word "japanese" is long, nd "japanese" at the time kept on popping up in their vocabulary....

i dont see anything wrong in it......ppl these days use "nigga" in a hip-hop way, while "nigga" is more racist than "jap", its more used in the black american community than white....

and if it is still racist to u...so be it...i dont think a derogatory term will be offending to them compared to the atrocities they commited in china, phillippines and rest of asia in ww2...

japan is much better in soccer as opposed to kenya in cricket.....nd why no btw?? if bangladesh can loose to england, india nd what not nd then thrash australia, why can australia follow the same footstep in soccer?? after all, australia didnt loose a game so far...

As an Asian, i supported Japan in that match. i was dishearted to see them lose like that.......I guess japanese were spending too much time on their fashion rather than practise....they didn't want to head some ball just coz it will ruin their hair settings...."according to my japanese friend...".....by the way, calling japs is racial just like calling Pakistani a paki.....i have noticed some of the indian forum calls bangladeshis as Bangees........i find it offending......

cant u guys take one decent lose sportingly ??
i havent seen anyone posting "yes..socceroos..congrats on ur win..u played well"... cuz they did.. n deserved to win that game...

the moment u find nothing to point out at... some of u have started to pick on little words which has been described in pure state of ecstacy and joy, and others has gone out to bring out the dictionary and encyclopedia to talk bout history, politics, and racism...

To:
SADI: Japan aint Kenya ... they r the asian champion and ranks 18th in the FIFA ranking while Australia ranks 44... so go figure out ur comparisons...

AKABIR77: No, they werent lucky. period. they played like the winning team and deserves every single of that 3 goals n 3 points that they got.
In case u guys dont know, the referee went to Mark Schwarzer just after 5 mins of the Japanese goal and apologised to him for his wrong decision.

We all call each other with a name..dont we ?? there are over countless of times that here in BC we called pakistanis paki.... and so what if few indians calls us bangees, cuz simply i dont give a rat's back... im not gonna go around n take offense everytime someone talks crap ... cuz ive got other things to do as well

and
BANGLATIGER84: that was a really poor shot at something that doesnt even concern u at all... don mean to get personal, but i see u live in UAE.. the land of the real thugs n convicts .. the oil rich[] who in the name of islam gambles away billions of thier money in casinos, boozes n girls... and still proclaim themselves a real first class muslims over us "miskins".... just cuz they speak arabic n they got the oil power ?? if u wanna start diggin up past and how every country came into existence... u might as well start a new thread but im afraid that would bring a ugly picture...

im taking it easy guys... don worry bout that..
but i just felt that we failed to appreciate a great win by a team who played their heart out till the dying seconds of the match with thier never-say-never attitude and registered a memorable victory...

Go the Socceroos...

What dissapoints me the most is that no one has taken to Australia, as they would any other underdog. Because thats what they are. Only 4 years ago, everyone took an instant liking to Korea and Senegal in the 2002 World Cup. Two years later, Greece, and Otto Rehagal, captured the hearts of many in Euro 2004. And yet, here we have a team, and a nation, only just beginning to make inroads on the world stage, only to be chastised for it.

I fear that it may have something to do with the same nations successes in other areas - or more specifically - in Cricket.

Firstly, I was replying to someone who felt "Japs" was perfectly ok just because its a short word. Japs was used in a derogatory way by American soldiers in WW2.

Secondly,

Not in comparison to Japan!

Australia is a pretty decent side and they are of the same standard as Japan or Croatia. It wouldnt be a "shock" even if they beat Croatia.

Dont give FIFA Rankings any attention because Argentina is 10th? and USA is 5th in those rankings :)

June 13, 2006, 06:24 AM
Japan deserve to lose. Zico made tactical error. I am not an expert. But here is my opinion where Zico completly lose the plot.
1. It was evening game. Japan was playing too fast. There was no effort to slow down the match. What happened , Japanese players were tired after first half.
2. When Hiddink was throwing his forwards, he did nothing to combat it.
3. Japan was defending too deep. Back line was actually playing inside penalty box.
4. Even in the second half when they were tired, when they have the possesion they were busy on releasing the ball to Nakamura as if there were no other midfielder.

Combine those with those misses of Takahara. Twice he got Aussi goalkeeper at his mercy and twice he failed. As I mentioned in my earlier post in another thread, Japan could be surprise package if their forwards fire. Unfortunately they did not. It is not Aussie won rather Japan lose.

On other note Jap is as offensive as nigger or Paki.
And why were not rooting for Australia or why Japan. For me it is no 1 Asian connection, no 2 I am now residing in Japan. Why support Senegal or some other african country. They are like our fellow opperesed black brothers in developing world, unlike Australia who are predominantly white and from developed world.

I don't care what you think, as you are neither Japanese or Black. There is no justification of a racist slang, calling a Japanese 'Jap' is as derogatory as any non-black person calling a black person 'nig*er', so I suggest you avoid using such words, even if it seems ok to you.

While we're at this, please sort out your choice of analogies, especially references you make to 'sex'.

Australia ranks below Japan just like Namibia ranks below Kenya... rank doesn't really matter here cuz in cricket we have only 10-15 countries playing while in football, its over hundred.... my point was kenya is a slightly better team than namibia and japan is a better team on paper than australia... just because aussies beat japan doesn't mean they will beat brazil.... try not to take everything literally...

about aussies winning japan... yes they played well and deserved to win... but problem lies somewhere else... when someone comes and says yeah we will thrash brazil next, thats when some of us make fun of the poster's football sense... its okay to be a good fan but you gotta be realistic at the same time... don't you think so?

yap...im not taking..but u r... but neither Namibia or Kenya is African champion even though only a handful of African plays cricket..!!
But Japan is the champion of the Asian Federation, in a geographic area with the most number of coutries..so when u compare Japan with kenya, u r actually undermining their credibility... got it ??

see, fans would always be optimist..and bout Aus playing Brazil, when realistically no one expects to beat them, statistically u cant blame an socceroo fan to be over optimist riding on the joy of the first wc win.. after all they did beat Brazil once in thier 5 times meeting so far.. so i guess the football sense is quite all right ..
ask any Croats today..i bet all of them would say they r lookin to beat Brazil...
now thrash is a word of over-excitement... and everyone knows that...

isnt it the same when we Bangladeshis want to win over Australia, or India..
when the truth is we beat them only once... but it still doesnt hold us to be over optimist ...when the matter of truth is we only won some odd 10 or 11 odi's against the top ranking teams, (minus kenya, hong kong and recent Zimbabwe) after playin them for over 100+ matches...

everyone here is realistic..it seems like u r the only one who's taking things literary and gettin carried away...

Australia worthy of our respect: Brazil


Thursday Jun 8 16:32 AEST
http://news.ninemsn.com.au/img/worldcup/0706_socceroos_a.jpg

Australia is already worthy of clear World Cup favourite and group rival Brazil's respect, says a leading Brazilian coach.
But the Socceroos must be disciplined in possession and launch lightning counter-attacks to have any chance against Ronaldinho and his outrageously talented team-mates, advised Oswaldo de Oliveira, the boss of Brazilian club Fluminense.
A series of gutsy performances, including a victory over Uruguay to qualify for Germany and the recent warm-up draw with world No.3 the Netherlands, in the lead-up to the 2006 World Cup caught the eye of de Oliveira.


He may have coached Brazil stars Robinho and Kaka at club level and won a World Club Cup in 2000 with Corinthians but the Rio de Janeiro-based coach said he was impressed by the Socceroos' style.

I like what I see," de Oliveira said in Sydney on Thursday.
"To beat Uruguay is very difficult. They are fighters and very difficult to beat. I like the style Australia played.
"Holland didn't play 100 per cent but anyway I like very much some of Australia's players, they showed they are at a good level and can play very well in the World Cup."
De Oliveira said while Brazil should not underestimate Australia when the two sides meet on June 18 in Munich, it will play its normal game.
"We have to respect the Australian players," he said.
"But if somebody must change, Australia must change against Brazil.
"They must have a very strong strategy to enforce the rhythm and ball possession.
"If you give the chance to Brazil to have the ball for a long time, you are giving us the game. Australia must mark very well and play very fast in counter-attack."
De Oliveira also tipped Australia to get past the first round in Germany - as long as it beats Japan in its opening game.
"I think Japan and Australia must fight a lot in the first game because the chance for the two countries will be decided in this game," he said.
"I think Australia, Japan and Croatia, they will fight for second place."
The Brazilian mentor warned however that the round of 16, where Australia would most likely meet Italy or USA, would be the last stop for the Socceroos if they survived the group stage.
The World Cup heavyweights will have found their feet by then and experience will be a telling factor in who progresses through the knockout stages, de Oliveira said.
In the country to promote Brazil-Australia relations through football, four-time Brazilian championship-winner de Oliveira did not rule out bringing his coaching talents Down Under in the future.
When asked if he was interested in replacing outgoing Australia coach Guus Hiddink, de Oliveira revealed he had been approached by A-League champion Sydney FC to be its inaugural coach.
"Last year Sydney FC [approached me] to bring me here but we didn't grow in our negotiations but I hope in the future I have a chance to come," he said.

You need to take your medicine on time you little immature child.

Don't get so over-excited at my suggestion, it is for your own good. You don't give a very good impression anyway, not that I am interested to know who you are because you already gave a clear picture of your character. By saying a lot people in Australia use the word 'Jap' to describe Japanese people just proved my point. You like to follow the crowd, feel overproud and think whatever most people at your locality thinks is right. Get over yourself.

Lastly, why do I care? I care because this is a G-Rated forum that represents the harmony of many open-minded Bangladeshi cricket fans and foreign supporters, but individuals like you ruin this for everyone. So learn to respect the rules and show courtesy to people who do give a damn about the environment here. This is not the movies, yet another lame analogy from you.

I think this was a great match considering what happened in the last 6 or 8 minutes. But the japanese were unlucky not to hold them for a few minutes as soceroos were defeated by the same marjin 1-0 in their last meeting. After the 1st goal, the Japanese just broke down and were desperate to score another to gain full points. This lead them to the downfall and the soceroos took the full advantage.

Another thing should come here is that Soceroos were a bit physical. If you look at what brasil think about them, they told that soceroos were targetting ankles and being physical. But its true as well that they're the better team at that day.

Against brasil, not sure how they will perform though. There is no wonder that Brasil is rich in football and they are the best in this business. About the soceroos, they hardly have any recent history and their ability is unknown. Well they beat Uruguay in the play off. They beat Japan - the best of the asian football . Now lets see if they can match the latin and european football or not. Well some may argue that their players are in most of the european teams but its true as well that some of the best japanese players play in the european teams as well. Although they beat England in England but that was probably a friendly match. There is a huge difference between a friendly and world cup match. So lets wait and see..!

For Australia

+They have quality players like viduka, kewel, cahill
+They beat Uruguay, England, Japan as their best performance

-They qualified for the first time in 32 years (fortunately with a penalty shootout)

I said you follow the crowd because you implied lots of people in Australia call Japanese people 'Japs' and as if that makes it right for you to do so, despite the fact this word is considered extremely offensive and is adviced to refrain from using. How hard is that for your puny brain to comprehend?

Don't tell me what to do when I make a better argument than you, this forum is not your daddy's property for you to be telling me which argument I can or can't be on. It's easy for you to be in denial than realise how pathetic you sound. Read yourself out loud and learn to accept where you are wrong. That's a valuable advice free of charge.

both you and i know when majority of people uses a term, its ceases to be a "slang"...thats how the word aussies short for "australian" is not offensive but "jap" which is short for "japanese" is considered offensive (in your ideal world, not mine)....i dont know where you are from, but different teminology has different meanings in different places....what offensive to you may not be offensive to me.....by now you shud have known that, unless you are some 13 year old punk trying to act like a 30 year old bura dhamra...

and btw, if you havent realise that this forum or the website in general isnt your daddy's property aswell...so dont start teaching me table manners when its clearly not in your place to do so, or give me worthless advices which you never practice yourself.....

still having trouble comprehending my lines?? let me put it in bold so maybe your blind eye can read out for christ's sake..

KEEP YOUR ADVICE TO YOUR SELF..AND CUT YOUR DADAGIRI CRAP....COZ NOT ONLY IT DOENST SUIT YOU, IT MAKES YOU LOOK LIKE A JOKER THAT CRACKS LAME JOKES

It's good to be a diehard supporter and you think yo are a part of them....but have you ever thought does any australian thinks you as a part of them???

thanks for your kind concern...

No i am not an australian citizen, but i am an aussie supporter. a support that came within me by watching socceroos failing to qualify 2002 WC and then sucessfully beat the same team in 2005 qualifier...

when i said "we taught em karate..." i meant we as in aussie fan....not as australian passport holder.....soccer has little or nothing to do with nationality documents and birth certificats...

i dont have to be a aussie to be a aussie supporter.....banglaesh didnt qualify for this world cup, yet ppl in this forum take side of other countries, i bet none of them have brazilian passport or were born there, yet many here takes brazils side....that includes me aswell...

and as for what ppl think of me...dark skinned bangladeshi...well i am proud to be one...thats how God created me.....and thats how i intend to stay.....you too are one if u didnt realise by now....

nd btw, ppl here dont give much damn about your colour of skin.....australia is not as racist as you think......nd why does it matter?? when i see a caucasian, i think in the same line "white skinned aussie"...no big deal there....

oh mate..you have no idea how big my circle of friends are.....but i dont want to bore you with those details....so lets keep our conversation on soccer shall we??

btw, i wasnt calling you racist...you pointed out why shud i go for australia when i am not a national of this country nd in your view where ever you go they will still call you the dark-skinned bangladeshi..., i on the otherhand pointed out that my nationality or skin colour doenst restrict me to support australia...coz soccer has nothing to do with ones nationality....there are lots of dark skinned ppl here if you wanna start counting....samoans, tongans, fijians, indians, sri lankans...etc.

dude i have lived here for more than 6 years and no one has called me dark-skinned bangladeshi, as far as my memory goes...

you wanna go on supporting ill-paid african footballers against multi-millionaire european footballers....thats your choice...going otherwise wont make you or anyone racist...

ya i dont deny that my way of talking was unconventional....but you cant deny that many members here made a huge joke out of my claim that australia has the potential to beat japan......i dunno about you but that to me is not only attack against what i strongly believed in, but also "unconventional"...

and no need to wish me luck aginst the match against brazil....while i hope a victory will help australia here more than brazil, if the result goes otherwise...i am happy none the less.

the link above with togo player's pay issue is just an example....

but to clarify, i meant ill-paid in the sense that they are from poor nation and do not get the same as european footballers....i am not talking about club players...i am talking about average players from togo, cameroon or senegal who plays only for their homeland.

Australia was not that bad as a new comer in the world cup recently.....they got fair amount of chances which they couldn't utilize coz of no experience and scorer.

Hmmmm. Should have kept an eye on this one. Hope the two sides have hugged and made up. No point getting dirty. However, it's the world cup and show some pride in the team you support. Some will take it a little bit further but it should be all in good fun. Enjoy the games (this has proved to be a better cup then I expected it to be), support your colors (Team colors that is), and rub it in WITHOUT resorting to personal attacks. If you must, challenge each other in a game of foosball or fifa online or maybe even a real match.

Anyone in Virginia/Maryland/DC want to get together and watch me run circles around you guys ? BRING IT ON. After watching all those missed penalties, I am feeling pretty good about NEVER missing a single penalty (I may have missed a few, but you guys can't prove it) in my life. How can you miss a penalty opportunity in the world cup ? Sheeeesssshhh.

but Australia still got a chance to go to the second round..all we need is a draw fm the Croatia game and i believe the Socceroos can do it...

and if they can do that.. they wud play either Czech/Italy/Ghana in the next round..
and i WOULD fancy my luck against any of those opponents based on their performance so far.. though id like to avoid Ghana...lol..

so...depending on the next match... we cud might as well make it to the quarters.. ha ha..that would be an awesome success for Australia..

Ok I am back. (This is probably the longest time I spent without access to internet)

Tiger_man, enough is enough.

You’re just doing damage control with your ignorant drivel. I didn’t start an argument to begin with, I merely protested to an offensive term that you’ve used rather unashamedly. If you didn’t intend to use it in that sense that’s all you need to say but don’t try to refute the term itself is not offensive.

Now you’re saying ‘Japs’ is just a shortened term for Japanese, similar to ‘Aussies’ to describe Australians - another awful comparison. Whereas your initial reasoning was a lot of people in Australia use this word blah……blah…….blah… as if that makes it right for you (or them) to do so. Besides you don’t represent the whole Aussie population. How would you feel if Bangladeshis/Bangalis are called ‘Bangs’, ‘Bangis’ or ‘Bangers’ for ‘short’? Maybe a lot of people in Australia find that acceptable, I suppose that also makes it okay? What are you smoking? "most people" using a term doesn't make it a slang. Slang is use of informal or 'vulgar' language mostly popular to street thugs and racist yobs, that's for sure.

I can't think of a clearer way to explicate your own words. IF ‘Jap’ despite being branded derogatory can still be a shortened term for Japanese without causing offence, wouldn’t you agree the term ‘Aussies’ for Australians could also imply ‘ex-convicts’ to the contrary, at least outside Australia by your logic?

Truth be told, there is no different meaning of this term in difference parts of the world (may be in your head) like there is no different meaning to the ‘N’ word, or the “shortened” word for ‘Pakistani’ - now that’s a reasonable comparison. The only difference is, ‘Jap’ is not your “mainstream” racist word because of the country and its people being relatively progressive throughout history.

Anyway I can see why you’ve berserk, you probably think Australia has conquered the world by beating its biggest foe “JAPAN”. Rest assured there is nothing wrong with feeling blindly and expressively proud. I feel the same way about Bangladesh, or even England (where I live), and of course Brazil, but in the end it’s only a sport and if one lesson I’ve learned in this forum, we ought to avoid prejudice even at the height of ecstatic success. If simply making this suggestion is “dadagiri” or teaching you “table manners”, well mate you’ve got issues.

I could care less how many insults you throw back at me because ultimately it will not change your nature, nor mine. So take this instance and move on, you might find it useful at some point of your sodding life.

I rest my case.

Slang is use of informal or 'vulgar' language mostly popular to street thugs and racist yobs, that's for sure.

i dont know (and really dont care) where you are from...i live in australia, so i use the same english they use here.....it wouldnt make sense if i used american or canadian terminology by living here...so i think that justifies my usage of aussie words...and no where in my previous post did i make a reference that i represent the aussie population....by using aussie terms doesnt make me a representative of this population...so get ur arguements straight if not right...


I can't think of a clearer way to explicate your own words. IF ‘Jap’ despite being branded derogatory can still be a shortened term for Japanese without causing offence, wouldn’t you agree the term ‘Aussies’ for Australians could also imply ‘ex-convicts’ to the contrary, at least outside Australia by your logic?

firstly, no one here gives two hoots on what terms was used against the ex-convicts....australia, particulaly sydney, melbourne and bribane are a highly multicultural society and our ancestors arent "ex-convicts"....

and no, the term aussies does not (except by you) imply to ex convicts....both logically and illogically.....coz few people outside australia have proper knowledge of convicts coming here first....besides those convicts were mostly irish, the term "irish" would logically be more suitable....again me and i am sure many people here dont give a damn about ur reasoning of australian's ancestry and what u logically think of their terms.....


The only difference is, ‘Jap’ is not your “mainstream” racist word because of the country and its people being relatively progressive throughout history.

so why make a big issue out of it?? you answered here yourself...
because its not a "mainstream" racist word, that justifies that my usage of the term is not racist....people dont dwell in the past...so if some word were racists 60 years ago, you would expect few people to find it racist still...a classic example is is the f-word....at one time that was one of the most degoratory terms....now its probably the most widely used word.....its still a slang but the level of degoratory has gone down somewhat...same goes with the word "jap"....


Anyway I can see why you’ve berserk, you probably think Australia has conquered the world by beating its biggest foe “JAPAN”. Rest assured there is nothing wrong with feeling blindly and expressively proud. I feel the same way about Bangladesh, or even England (where I live), and of course Brazil, but in the end it’s only a sport and if one lesson I’ve learned in this forum, we ought to avoid prejudice even at the height of ecstatic success. If simply making this suggestion is “dadagiri” or teaching you “table manners”, well mate you’ve got issues.

i simply dont know how to counter this without losing my patience....

first of all...how does australia conquer the world by beating japan in a game of soccer by 3-1?? even to the biggest nutcase, that wouldnt make sense.....

my accusation of your "dadagiri" was due to the fact that you were telling me something when its not in your place to do so..not because my reactions to japanese was prejudiced.......dude, i got nothing against the japanese, lets set that straight....this laptop i am replying you with is made in japan...most of the electronic stuff in my house is made in japan...does that make me anti-japanese???

so lets get this one straight...its not me who has issues, its you...because you are running out of arugements to counter my views.....you are taking blind shots at me that dont make sense.....

I could care less how many insults you throw back at me because ultimately it will not change your nature, nor mine. So take this instance and move on, you might find it useful at some point of your sodding life.

I rest my case.

hatebreed, i would rather have a sodding life than a screwed up one like yours.....go breed your hatred somewhere else.....i have learned to better to move on with my life and my views as opposed to rectifying someone else's when its not my place to do so.....once again, let me tell you this, i dont give a damn whether my terminology is degoratory to you....i dont run after you and pick on your choice of words so why not show the same courtesy to me?? ....think your life is any better?? take a look at your own life b4 commenting on someone elses.....

saying that i rest my case aswell...

Hatebreed
June 24, 2006, 08:06 AM
Tiger_man, you just did what you always do-- deny the fact. My very first post was regarding the term itself but you took it personally and jumped on me. You completely overlooked my point that "there is no different meaning of the term 'Jap' in different places in the world", especially Australia which is a country as close to Japan. It may not be as mainstream as 'n***er' or 'p*aki' (for the reason I already stated, read it again), but still is characterised as racist and adviced from using in all circumstances.

You may not know it or want to accept the truth but Australians hate the Japanese. Being an Aussie or living in Australia where people like to use commonly twisted slang terms doesn't justify a use of shortened the term of another race or nationality, especially one that is widely considered offensive.

You're killing me with your lousy comparisons. The 'F' word is NOT a racist word so it doesn't necessarily or specifically offend people who belong to a particular race, and therefore not as derogatory in the same sense. The fact that F word has become so mainstream and 'acceptable' is because people put up with it and this proves racist words that are not commonly used are NOT acceptable because they are in fact DEROGATORY and should remain this way.

Read your own words, you sound like you're the one 'losing' it just because Australia beat Japan 3-1.. "Australia nails japs.. we taught em karate the kangaroo style".. Big deal! It's so obvious you are getting personal with the Japanese.

As I said, there's nothing wrong with feeling expressively proud, it's only a sport. You can scream all day "WE beat the japanese sumos the ex-convict style", fair enough. Just leave the 'jap' word out of it, it doesn't matter whether you intend to use in a racist manner, it still is offensive and that's all you need to know.

I'm telling you all this because you are ignorant, not because I enjoy arguing with a person of your nature. It's not a question of showing courtesy or hatred, it's about a racist term you are reluctant to accept as derogatory and your continuous denial only makes my argument strong. Don't worry I'm very happy with my life so sort yours out because you mess up big time with that egocentric attitude.

Look, guys, I'd hate to but in on your little quarrel, but it's got to stop. Tigerman, I don't understand why you persist in arguing over such a trivial issue. I mean, Hatebreed's first post was not even remotely offensive.

I was going to stay quiet on this, but I have to complaint about the word 'Japs' which is considered a racist and derogatory term for a Japanese descent.

And Hatebreed, I can understand why you may object to another person using a word that you may find offensive in a public forum. And I'm sure you would have realised that, although Australian's do have a colloquial term for almost anything, we will refrain from using it when it is considered offensive.

In this case, I don't think Tigerman represents the vast majority of us.
