  1. Also used in french (not very common). Much more common, is the use of the word "fanny" when a team or someone is scoreless in a game or a tournament. The origins of the expression are rather nebulous, but it has been popularised through the world of pétanque of the early XXth century when the losing team had "to kiss fanny ass" as some kind of a punishment. Nowadays, It's used in sports as in everyday life. https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Embrasser_Fanny
  2. Same in french: 'panier' (litteral translation of basket) is used when someone scores. The term 'basket' is commonly used to name the sport when basketball connoisseurs tend to prefer to use the full term of 'basketball' (in a kind of 'I'm better than you' way )
  3. Ice Hockey 2017 - 2018 Discussion Thread

    Apparently, it's all been paid by the hungarian government...
  4. Ice Hockey 2017 - 2018 Discussion Thread

    Both combined or each ? In any case (and no offense to the slovak league) that seems quite expensive...
  5. 2026 Winter Olympic Games

    Yes, it had (except for the speed skating thing). I don't believe Switzerland could had a better bid tbh. It's more that possible that we will never see a swiss bid ever again...
  6. 2026 Winter Olympic Games

    I'd say that if any (western) european city makes it to the final candidate stage, they will have it in the bag. The thing is, I don't believe anymore that a western european bid will survive so far (Sion was my best hope).
  7. 2026 Winter Olympic Games

    And now, Sion is gooooone too. https://www.lematin.ch/suisse/Sion-2026-c-est-non-aux-JO/story/14427188 So no olympic speed skating in the Netherldands I guess
  8. Doping Cases and Bans Thread (2018)

    Sooo... don't answer the doping agents, claim yout bell is broken and walk free ? She should copyright it, she 'd make more with that than with her tennis's carrer. On other news, l'Equipe had acces to the letter that Russia sent to WADA which is a basically a confess that inded shit was going on in Russia and that the McLaren Repport findings were right. (In french). A moment of thought for the ones (here and elesewhere) that was claiming this to be only an anti-russia conspiracy run by rabbic russophobes. In Memoriam.
  9. Football 2018 Discussion Thread

    Him tweeting against Morocco 2026 is the best possible lobby in favor of Marocco 2026.
  10. [OFF TOPIC] General Chat

    It's pure decorum. A grotesque decorum that's it.
  11. Doping Cases and Bans Thread (2018)

    Thankfully, he only starts to dope in january this year. Do you immagine, if he doped in 2012 ? ... Actually, there is something that could be done and that could be more efficient than life ban. Strip every medals, every records from any caught athletes up to the date he got caught.
  12. Summer Olympic Games 2020 News
