Re: J. League revenues There is the World Baseball Classic which is like the World Cup......16 teams played in it. And they used to play it in the olympics I'm not saying that baseball is remotely as popular as soccer. What I'm saying is you underestimate how much people know about it. I brought up Honda because he probably is the most recognisable Japanese player in the world right now......and he's in a lesser league. Ichiro was recognized as the best in his sport and he's a transcendant figure. I think you underestimate his fame. He's got a Beckham like brand that's alot harder to do in soccer because there is so much competition. That's kind of the point I was getting at. I know a Japanese player is not considered as the best soccer player in the world or top 10, probabaly not top 50. top 100?
