As far as the OP and his claims throughout this thread, all I've seen so far is a complete lack of understanding for what makes a camera a viable platform for sports/action shooting.

I'm a staunch supporter of the m4/3 platform, and have shot sports with an E-PL5, EM5, EM1, G5, and GH3.  It CAN be done, but it's certainly not the best tool for the job.  Someone said it earlier in the however many pages of 10 color posts with all the quotes.....it's getting very close, but it's not there yet.  Tracking isn't there yet, and current generation EVF's just can't compete with OVF's in professional level sports and action imaging situations.  That's not a criticism of the GH4 or any m4/3 camera, it's just the reality of the technology.  For everything but sports/action photography, m4/3 cameras are "good enough" 99% of the time.  For sports/action....well, I couldn't agree with Dr_Jon more.
