    "Indefinitely?" Could be a couple of weeks.

    For “personal reasons” so likely not an injury. Hope everything is alright with him and his family, but only speculation at this point on the reason.

    Smile Rui, Rui, Rui!

    Rui is one of this fan's all-time favorite Zags. Hope he's back soon and on track or a great season, then a big fat new contract in a couple years.




    :]
    Yeah, we're "The Champs," uh-huh!

    Not sure of the validity of this but this guy appears to be knowledgeable. It certainly would not come as a surprise considering the number of high profile athletes who have recently come forward expressing similar concerns:

    Just FYI, that was a May 3, 2021 game that Rui played in.
    I'm laughing. Why aren't you?

    I understand that. I was sharing the article talking about what Rui and his brother are experiencing.

    It must be odd to be a celebrity (of sorts) in Japan with lots of commercials, so in the public eye and at the same time to be reviled because of their color.

    Japan, to my knowledge and admittedly never having lived there, always tried to maintain a cultural purity. Someone that has lived there could speak better towards that. We, as a country, are not that far away from having the same problems in many parts of our country. The myriad of names that have been used, to define the amount of colored blood one has is immense, as well as the prejudice against someone with that blood.
    I hope that we, and the world, can get past that, but much like Jackie Robinson in baseball, it has to start somewhere and with one, or two, persons.

    Just now saw this post...so very sad and I feel badly for him and his brother and actually, all minorities that have to suffer these types of comments...

    Yes, willandi it is very unfortunate that this country, which has always been mentioned as a melting pot, has I estimate millions of people in this country that feel superior to minorities. My wife has gone through this in the senior community where we live with 15K others...will it ever change, I do not believe so but we can hope...
