  1. Since the discussion is currently on TV Shows, if anyone wants to watch something AWESOME but still different from the well known American shows, try the South Korean tv show The Genius. Available here - https://www.reddit.com/r/TheGenius/comments/70jog1/links_to_all_subbed_episodes_of_the_genius_s14/ It is my ALL TIME favorite show and nothing else even comes close (and I watch a LOT of TV). It is a show about people playing different and highly interesting cerebral/social games, which should translate very well for Totallympians with our shared love of sport and competition. The only slight issue is that it's in Korean, means you need to follow the english subtitles. Every one who watches the genius has only 1 of 2 reactions - (1) It is AWESOME or (2) I cudn't handle the subtitles. But it's also the first show I ever watched with subtitles, so it's not that difficult and as long as u can handle them, u'll be in for a treat.
  2. I'd agree with you but not when the Olympics is involved. If the alternate body wud have been in charge of holding, say, a world championship, federations might have still been strong-armed and stayed loyal to AIBA. But with Olympic participation on the line, they'll show AIBA the finger...
  3. Nah - India is one of the ones missing. We use water, not toilet paper to do our business
  4. But once IOC de-recognizes AIBA, do the national federations really care about AIBA anymore ?? I wud imagine that other than the few favored nations like Russia, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan, no one really likes AIBA or cares about them as they keep robbing their boxers. Some powerful boxing nations like USA, UK and Ireland clearly hate AIBA. Its a little idealistic, and I think eventually all this will just boil over, but the ideal solution for me would be for IOC to suspend AIBA and continue boxing at Tokyo through an interim body. Of course, that doesnt mean only pro boxers. Amateur boxers and proper qualifying tournaments still have to be there. And ideally, a change in the current bogus scoring system.
  5. I always use this https://arena.unitedworldwrestling.org/sport-event/show/b6b4b24a-d22e-11e8-b941-080027548b1b/live
  6. Hmmm ...add 57 kg women to this as well. Completely stacked bottom half (especially bottom quarter), Hungarian girl in top half ended with Bronze...
  7. Heartiest congratulations to Sourav Kothari on winning the World Billiards Championships !! New name added to added to India's long list of world champions in billiards http://www.wbeventsonline.com/?page_id=57&TID=282
  8. Lets get the categories right guys - its 50 kg, 53 kg, 57 kg, 63 kg, 68 kg and 76 kg at Tokyo. The team does look pretty good....
  9. Actually my question was about the 2nd period - the one where blue made the challenge. The action that happens with Jpn leading 10-8 and 28 secs left to go. It was initially given 2-1, JPN challenged asking for 4, challenge was turned down and hence Russia got extra point to make it 12-10. You say that it your opinion, it was a stupid challenge and a clear 2. Just want to understand why. To me, it seems like a 4 - JPN seems to be the clear attacker till they hit the ground and they seem to go from feet to Russian's back, at which point Russia counters and gets the 1. I am guessing you are saying it was 2 as may be Russia's bottom hit the ground a milisecond before JPN. but seemed like a 4 to me (and of course the JPN coach who challenged).
  10. Thanks for the magnificent analysis. I just watched the match with the analysis by the side just to understand the rules better. So one question - with 30 seconds left to go in the 2nd period, JPN clearly took down Russia onto his back, and both of them were on their feet when action began. So why was it a 2 and not a 4 (JPN coach clearly thought it was 4). Is it because JPN didnt have control with the Russian on his back ?? (Also, in this action, the final result after review WAS 2-1 in favor of Japan, and not 2-2. Russia got the extra point because of a failed challenge from Japan). Also, in the end when they put the Russian in par-terre, shudnt the clock have been reset for 4 seconds to 7 seconds. It didn't matter much but shud have been done right ??
  11. The other big difference is how will the rankings be affected by the hockey pro league and the hockey series. I beleive FIH has still NOT announced how the rankings will work. While India has great rankings right now, if playing in pro league itself can get a lot of points then it can be a problem for India - but yeah, unlikely. And yeah, difference in competition level can be quite a big thing when it gets to the actual olympics (think we'll be fine in the playoffs)..
  12. The supposed "mistaken" challenge clearly also played into the Japanese's hands in terms of rest. Great bout though. Also, Otoguro is World Cadet Champion and had teched Takatani (Japanese silver medalist at Asian Games) in Japanese trials..
