  1. I can't get too mad at the idea of players getting some of the jillions of dollars floating around college football; considering the amount of money that people who don't play make out of the sport; especially when there's no reliable way into actual professional football, except through college.

    Stockport County back in the EFL after 11 years. 

    BOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    (Only because this means that the Town has to go through the Playoffs, again, and that's never a good thing,)

    I don't think a 2" margin of error is outside the realm of acceptable.  

    2" margin of error is reasonable enough, Angel Hernandez's main problem is that he comes across as an argumentative shithead, which is not a positive quality in a match official. These stories aren't just "Angel Hernandez blew a call," it's always "Hernandez blows a call, blows up about it."

    #FTR abandoning their No Flips Just Fists mantra with Cash Wheeler doing a springboard 450 degree splash

    I actually really dug this aspect of the match, he was so convinced of his superiority that he went for about the stupidest thing he could have done to show off and it cost him in the worst possible way.

    People getting mad about it are so weird. We have technology and use its improvements in literally every aspect of our life. I am sure all the purist don't use keyless car entry, phone apps to order food, or use the People Mover in the airport either. Baseball (and maybe golf?) are the only sports that some fans think any change is bad and it should be the same sport as it was in 1920, while the NFL has been beaming plays into the QB's helmet since 1994 and soccer has had VAR for five years. It should be this simple. "Will this improve the game in some way with no downsides?" "Yes." "Ok, do that."

    Other sports absolutely had these arguments, including the "it'll spoil the purity of our game," that always gets bandied around, and my personal favourite "video technology will undermine the on field officials," as if broadcasters beimg able to pull up evidence of these things within fifteen seconds didn't undermine them twice as much. There are always a few luddites who argue vociferously against change, and watch out for them crowing in the first season or two as there are teething problems and the officials get to grips with the best way to actually use the technology. (or not, if the traditionalists actually win,) 

  6. To be fair, a Kangaroo face on Lucy and my hair and beard on Charlie Brown would do it. Only support England in two sports and this happens every single time in both of them. 

  7. Wow, England are ahead and need their tail-enders to put up another massive performance to even give their bowlers something to aim at. Of course, the bowlers and the tail-enders are the same people. Welcome to Test Cricket, Saqib Mahmood.

    Considering that they recorded the Raw commentary for taped shows on the day of the show (or they did the commentary live!-ish)... there's probably a bit of a "we're not bringing either of these wrestlers back" all over the commentary of that match.

    That explains it, there is no way on earth that Lawler would have chattered so much rot if he even suspected that Aja Kong might be in the same state as him.

  9. If I've got a choice of matches that I don't have a rooting interest in, then the one I watch/listen to will be based on which commentary team I like better; but I'd never just put a sporting event that I otherwise wouldn't watch/listen to just for the commentary.

    I have definitely been up late (3am, GMT) for MNF and thought "fuck this, I'm going to bed" because Brian Griese opened his mouth.

  10. Likening Maeda to the sea is about as accurate as it gets. He may not have been the best of the Shoot Style guys, but he was certainly the Ace of them in a way that no-one who followed him could match. There's an IWGP Tag Title match in which he basically dropkicks either Koshinaka or Muto (I can't remember which, me and a friend had been up pretty late watching random matches,) out of their boots, and now my friend remembers him as "Mr. Shoot Dropkick."
