Didn't you hear? Sasuke gets ass-pulls all the time dude. A good pair of Aburame quality shades is not only guaranteed to counter Tsukuyomi but to also reflect it back on the user. Big hair and some stunner shades! The perfect MS counter. And if a shinobi really wants to be daring he will put on some really baggy clothes to absorb all of that physical damage from Susano'o. If only shinobi were fashionable the MS would be less effective then the Byakugan.

That is how arguments are won. With proof. And straight from the source, no less. People can assume and speculate all they want. Gaara's sand is fast and Jiraiya's hair is fast. Look at the sand caught on fire. It's above them. Gaara moved the fire away to a safe distance and then released his hold on the sand. Thus engulfment averted. Jiraiya could've done the same with his hair - people's argument everywhere. It's incredible how people can look at stone cold proof right in the face and deny it. Incredible. And with unsupported speculation no less. And with attitude to boot. Wow.
Super thumbs up! Couldn't agree more!
Interpreting events and skills is good and all, but in some posts there was no such thing. It was just bashing Sasuke while praising Jiraiya or bashing a character and thus giving the vote to the opponent. I don't know whether you keep up with the discussion or not, but I don't really care to link to such posts.
It's weird how people are willing to accept Itachi saying he couldn't beat Jiraiya, but refuse to accept Jiraiya can't break out of genjutsu when he himself admitted to be bad at genjutsu, one place where Itachi excels in and Sasuke does well in due to Sharingan. I can easily see Minato or Naruto, most likely Minato, winning, even if the manga revealed Itachi's true speed was better than Minato's or Jiraiya took Hiraishin and mastered it to a higher degree than Minato.
Before anyone accuses me of saying such thing, I was presenting hypothetic situations. While the situations aren't impossible, they're very unlikely to happen/to be revealed.
First off, Gaara's reaction time had nothing to do with this feat. His sand was out before Sasuke tried to use Amaterasu on him. This is where others are having a problem. In order for Jiraiya to be able to block a blast with his hair, he would have to anticipate it (which is what Gaara did). How can he anticipate it if he doesn't know it's coming? This scenario can branch off in so many ways:
Itachi turns on MS
J-Man covers himself in hair at the sight of it.
Turns out that Itachi was never going to use Amaterasu in the first place.
J-Man is now mind raped by Tsukuyomi
Why? Because in order to prepare for Amaterasu he looked Itachi straight in the eyes
Itachi actually fires Amaterasu and J-Man grows his hair
We are back at square one.
Back to Gaara blocking the sand, can we tell which flames were spammed and which flames were manipulated by Sasuke's Enton technique? There is sustained ball of flame hovering above Sasuke's head.
In the end, I can't help but wonder how J-Man's hair compares to Gaara's sand in durability.
And let's keep this peaceful guys. It's not like we are putting money on this...right?
