Kenta Maeda is free to change his display name to just his last name, since he is now the lone Maeda on the team (the other Maeda, Tomonori, retired after last season).  A number of the younger players have also taken to calling him Maeda-san, but he wants no part of it, since he believes there can only ever be one Maeda on Hiroshima (the aforementioned Tomonori Maeda).  As such, he is asking people to call him Mae-Ken.  He also wants to continue using MaedaKen (前田健) as his display name.
