  1. #1 what a terrible place? 
    The North Korean soccer team, after losing all three of their games in the 2010 World Cup, sat through six hours of public shaming upon their return to their home country.

    After their surprisingly close opening game against Brazil, North Korean officials agreed to show the team’s next two games on air. Bad idea. North Korea lost 7-0 to Portugal, then 3-0 to the Ivory Coast. Naturally, then, they dealt with this when they got home:

    Earlier this month the team and manager were forced onto a stage at the People’s Palace of Culture in front of 400 government officials, students, and journalists. According to the Guardian, the athletes were subjected to a “six-hour barrage of criticism” for their poor performances that was led by a TV commentator and sports minister Pak Myong-chol.

    If that wasn’t enough, players were then forced to go on stage and make disparaging comments about their coach, Kim Jong-hun, who has since been put into a labor camp.

    The reason that he’s been singled out is because the team’s poor performance is “seen as a personal betrayal of Kim Jong-un,” who is the son of current crazy North Korean dictator Kim Jong-il. A strong showing at the Cup would have been credited to Jong-un, thus making the transition of power easier. That was not the case, and now the coach must pay.
    Does this even make sense?
    Just because the national soccer team didn't do well in the Word Cup and did not meet the demands
    of Kim Jong-Un, they sentenced the soccer coach to hard labor?
    This kind of action clearly shows the inhumane treatment of North Korea.
    The worst human rights violating country..
    The worst government dictatorship..
    This is North Korea.
    What a terrible place?

    I don't think he's American. His IP looks to be from Japan, and almost all of his posts regard N. Korea.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    This should give the owners of the Detroit Lions some new ideas for dealing with losing teams! Granted, they already face the whole public humiliation thing on a daily basis, but to be faced with being sent to a labor camp for losing?! That might get some results!

    I'm glad I'm a Packer fan, even if we spent the entirety of the 70's and 80's sucking balls

    oh yea. Threatening black players in a black city with involuntary forced labor would go down really well . . .
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.
