  3. Yes, of course they are allowed to win...
  4. Groups for Copa America 2020... Group A ("South" group in Argentina) Group B ("north" group in Colombia) 4 teams from each group advance to QFs. The final will be played in Colombia.
  5. Biden will win easily and then he will lose to Trump. This is very predictable.
  6. Some other interesting details: -1st group D (England maybe?) Would play 2nd of the death group in 1/16. - There is potentially a Croatia-Serbia match up. - Turkey gets two games in Baku, which is the best they could hope for.
  7. Sorry, a little correction: if Romania wins this play-off, they will go to group C and yes, one of the small nations will go to group F.
  8. No, it will be Hungary, Iceland, Bulgaria or Romania.
  9. UAE will qualify their naturalized judoka eventually. It was stupid to blow one of their few medal chances like that though.
  10. Brazil got the best possible draw both women and men the men will probably still fail to qualify.

  12. In my view the previous format was way more exciting but we reached a point where the top players didn't give a shit anymore. With this format and the increased $$$ prizes, only Zverev and Medvedev among the top players pulled out for non injury reasons. In my opinion the top priority should always be to ensure the top athletes participate. If we have to adopt a worse format to achieve it, then it's a needed sacrifice.
  13. I can't speak for other countries but here no one that was part of the last dictatorship holds any political position of any kind or has any political relevance. In part because of time (the last military government ended 35 years ago, so most people are dead), in part because the military (as a whole) lost all respect from the people after their last government due to their criminal actions (kidnapping, torture, executions) and also their terrible management of the economy. Nowadays, the military are not a political actor anymore and any attempt of a coup would be met with strong rejection from the public, which was not the case 40/50 years ago. I reckon in some other countries it's different (eg. in Chile Pinochet and the military had decent support even years after they left, in Brazil they have some people like Bolsonaro who more or less reivindicates the military dictatorship).
  14. This is not correct. Military governments had largely the support of the church. The military didn't exactly opress the church, quite the contrary, the military were very catholic and had deep conections with church's top hierarchy. In fact, being an atheist back those days inmediately made you a suspect to them. There was, however, a minority branch inside the church of priests that were left leaning/dedicated to social justice and were arrested/kidnapped/executed during that rule. The pope during those times was kind of in the middle, he wasn't part of the top hierarchy that supported the military and was clearly right-leaning, but wasn't either part of the leftist branch. The catholic church in south america is heavily right-wing still to this day. The pope is kinda an exception to be honest, and even then, he became more leftist after being elected (to the surprise of many catholics here).
