I guess that sums it up except my main point is that we would of gained the same amount of medals free pass or not, we just had the biggest team because we were required to enter athletes to all events

Ah I see, and that would be because the free passes were low level athletes.

yeah exactly, they were so far behind the top performing athletes that even home advantage wouldn't help them win anything

That's the same point I was driving at, I just didn't see that sentiment shown in that confusing sentence so I was trying to figure out why we differed. We weren't required to enter them though, we just could and did take the opportunity to.

ah well it will get better don't worry about it ;-)

I hope you'll be ok with it if I vehemently disagree with you there. I have a friend I get to visit every couple of months but more local and more often would be nice.

it's sad because we are putting so much energy in to a pointless argument in the middle of the night

Yeah, it was mostly pointless regardless of time.

On the flip side I was trying to say that I was hoping that if you took out the automatic places we still would have had the biggest team we've ever had.

might be, quite a few probably got a free pass but we might of entered over 400 hundred good enough to qualify who knows, maybe they'll release official figures one day

Once I go through the team size numbers we should have a pretty good estimate bar those who would have qualified anyway.
YOU for Yakuza 5!
It's the closest thing we'll get to Shenmue III for the forseeable future...
