I know that VF, is more of a past time for most here, and that the japanese have the best players in the World. But Thats cause they never play us or at least I dont see them attempting to play us. Now, I understand the many reasons for this, but I feel like our own country has a lot to do with this. I feel we need to stop imatating the Japanese players and gain our own Identity. I know what Im saying is probably harder than it sounds, but we need to get out there and show the world that the US has hardcore vf competition. But we need to start at home. Every city should have gatherings, and a web site if possible. I dont know how we are going to get the world to think of us as a serious contender for vf challange.
