  1. I guess, I'll need to thank you for taking the time to explain to me your reasoning. But boy, you really like to make your life a living hell, thinking about everything that could go wrong. If you let the users chose, I'll garantee you that almost every time everything will go smooth. For the 5% remaining, there will allways be you and/or the mods, and I'm pretty much certain it will take you less time to fix it than the time you've taken to post this message. I don't accuse you to be a 'dictator' (quite the contrary actually*), I'm disapointed in the way you're running your forum trying to prevent problems before they appeared as: a) It doesn't prevent problems ultimately b) It puts you forum under anaesthetic Every succesful forum works the other way around. They are letting users with a great amount of liberty, but rule with an iron hand in cases of stepping over. It's exactly the same discussions we had about letting people making their own threads, making this forum their own, etc. You refuse to do so, because apparently you believe that we would start killing each others whereas there are thousands of exemple which proves that it is not necessarily the case. * I, personnaly, shoud have been warned a couple of times for instance
  2. I could bet right there that no country qualified to the 2018 WC will do the same thing Apparently, there is no time frame in the ukrainian decision. I'm not eaxactly sure what they're epecting . As far, I can tell, they only hurt themselves in the process.
  3. Biathlon IBU World Cup 2017 - 2018

    Something about that I immagine: https://www.insidethegames.biz/articles/1062683/ukrainian-government-bans-athletes-from-competing-at-events-in-russia Something, that - btw - in an international sports forum should really be thread worthy, but god forbides: how could it fit in our perfect Khlokoz of forum ?
  4. Clearly, they 'd be blood. Hoppefully, you're here helping us standardizing EVERYTHING, so we don't start ripping each others. Thank you.
  5. I'm older than you, So you really should be the one to be worried about that
  6. Or you know, let people figure out what they 'd like to add.
  7. 2026 Winter Olympic Games

    Major surprise as the swiss parliament is asking to switch the Sion 2026 referendum from Valais canton to national level. https://gamesbids.com/eng/winter-olympic-bids/2026-olympic-bid-news/sion-2026-olympic-bid-in-danger-as-referendum-could-be-switched-to-national-vote/ Most people believe that the referendum won't stand a chance in a national vote...
  8. France National Thread | En Route pour Tokyo 2020

    Pour le water polo, c'était un peu le couronnement d'une génération, la fin d'une aventure, et leur coach est parti (chez les filles). La, ils sont reparti sur un nouveau cycle et pensent plus à 2024 AMHA. Et puis, leur qualif' tenait quand même - un peu - du miracle . C'est d'ailleurs pas loin d'être mon souvenir préféré de l'Olympiade.
  9. France National Thread | En Route pour Tokyo 2020

    Sinon, pour ceux qui veulent se replonger/découvrir la période 1992-2004. Je ne peux que conseiller cette fantastique chaîne, qui mérite beaucoup, BEAUCOUP, plus de vues. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYTIkyAl2uwxaR9XVmOB4rA/videos
  10. France National Thread | En Route pour Tokyo 2020

    Sports co: Handball H/F Rugby à VII H/F Football H/F (à un moment donné, les mecs vont bien finir par se qualifier) Basketball F (Oui, malheureusement) Volley H (en espérant que ce soit réglé le plus vite possible) Hockey H (on ne peut pas échouer à un match de la qualif à CHAQUE fois, right ?) Ni baseball/softball, ni water polo (et si une des équipes doit se qualifier, je mettrais une pièce sur les filles)
  11. Alpine Skiing FIS World Cup 2017 - 2018

    If anyone wondered, Brice Roger is the higest bib to reach the podium since Hannes Trinkl who won a Super G race in 1993 with bib 51
  12. Which Sports Events are you Currently Watching?

    Something like "hey, we won the euro championship for the 256th time" would be complety ignored by the general sport fan (to give an exemple) ?
  13. Which Sports Events are you Currently Watching?

    NHL, fine, but the MLB also ?! You're supposed to be the baseball darling of the continent. You'll make the two internationall baseball fans from North America very disapointed.
  14. Which Sports Events are you Currently Watching?

    Rugby League as a fringe sport in Spain and Kenya ? Ok, that's complety BS. In Spain, the sport is about 5 teams around Valencia that plays like 3 or 4 games a year. And is currently not existing in Kenya. I really like the methodology he offers, I'd like to know how he collected the datas though. Some (but not all) are really off.
  15. Which Sports Events are you Currently Watching?

    A medium sport in the US is something like a billion dollar industry, that's not the case for T&F in the US
  16. Which Sports Events are you Currently Watching?

    That's not surpising at all.
  17. Which Sports Events are you Currently Watching?

    It's probably the least BS list you'll ever find on the subject. The guy actually put some thoughts and efforts on it . Crazy ! Edit; there are still some stuff that makes my eyes rolling for exemple: Except for the first two countries and maybe Brazil. I don' see how you could consider AF as a minor in sport in any of this country. Not even a fringe one tbh. I guess, it has a lot to do with Superbowl repports, even if a lot of them threat it like a social event and not a sport's one.
  18. Rugby Discussion Thread

    17,440 spectators watched the victory of the french girls iagainst England in Grenoble last night which is an all-time record for a women's game
  19. Rugby Discussion Thread

    There was a time when this didn't recquire so many explanation point . Argh...
  20. Biathlon IBU World Cup 2017 - 2018

    18.1 seconds for Guigonnat's last shooting
  21. 2026 Winter Olympic Games

    He must be refering to the additional sports from Agenda 2020 that have been inaugurated with Tokyo 2020 right ? If so, this is only about news sports from new - recognised - federations. Or, it's something new entirelly, and then I'm out.
  22. Shooting ISSF World Cup 2018

    Oh, a french double in 25 meters pistol . That's uncomon. Maybe, even a first ?
  23. Which Sports Events are you Currently Watching?

    Cool final, congrats to our new 1998 national American Football champions: Aix Argonautes
  24. Biathlon IBU World Cup 2017 - 2018

    I didn't think it was necessary to write it...
