Kimiyasu Kudo spent about two hours speaking to team officials yesterday (Sanspo says it was a 1-hour meeting) and later told reporters he had nothing to say to them.

According to recent rumors, Hiromoto "Dave" Okubo was allegedly caught fining players 1,000 yen for every minute they were late to practice.  After one player paid a fine of 200,000 yen, Okubo was apparently told to stop fining players.  Okubo was supposedly upset at being reported and approached Yusei Kikuchi and hit him based on the assumption that it was Kikuchi that "snitched" on him.

Kikuchi did not speak to reporters yesterday.
