  2. @konig I was bored so I made a full prediction of qualification for 2020 games. What do you think? Did I miss anything?

    Men's Football AFC Asian Cup 2019

    Nigeria is not so poor that they can't hold to their young talent. Especially not in football since they qualify to almost every world cup and have a more prestigious team than Qatar probably will ever have.

    ^ or if the ref didn't save you with Argentina. You get those iranian referees, you win Just a joke. Egypt deserved to pass anyway.

    Men's Handball IHF World Championship 2019

    Can someone explain me why Qatar is above Angola in this standing? yesterday they did the same with group A showing Russia above Brazil despite Brazil won their match-up.

    Pan American Games 2019

    Yes. As far as I remember all top 15 players are egyptian, asian or European.

    Pan American Games 2019

    I think it will just be bodybuilding and men's softball. Only Canada/USA host would remove pelota. Between squash and racquetball it's a no brainer that racquetball should stay, in pan american games it's almost a world championship while squash is a low level event. Anyway I think both stay.

    All teams advance to quarterfinals.

    Men's Football AFC Asian Cup 2019

    Looking at the matches I'd say Vietnam and Oman are winning for sure. The others are close.

    Men's Handball IHF World Championship 2019

    Ouch, didn't know that. But.... There is also the possibility that Angola beats us and ties with both in 4pts if we keep losing balls in attack like today it wouldn't surprise me.

    Men's Handball IHF World Championship 2019

    Actually I feel Egypt will be the one to qualify at the end. I don't see Qatar winning points with Sweden and I don't see them beating our team by more than 4 goals.

    Men's Handball IHF World Championship 2019

    Very bad referees in Argentina-Egypt for both sides. They were a bit harsh on egyptian players in the first half mostly but in the last 2 minutes they saved Egypt in a play were they should have been given a suspension and a penalty (because they were defending inside the circle), instead they were given only a suspension and the ball for them and also an argentinian player was given a suspension for protesting about this (about which he was right). Egypt won the game right there.

    Handball 2019 Discussion Thread

    Maybe they will give the wildcard to France and Europe will just have one more team than what they were supposed to. USA is working hard to develop their handball. But I find it unlikely that they will become better than let's say Cuba by 2025.

    This is incorrect, he has been injured since Shanghai last year. He fractured something in the middle of a match.

    Minor sports and television

    This is the scene in Argentina.. Tv pública: the state channel. They show football NT matches and world cup in their main channel. However, they have a sport dedicated channel (called deportv). In that one they show documentaries or interviews about sport most of the time but also national leagues of minor sports like handball, hockey or volleyball. They broadcasted volleyball wch last year and now handball wch. ESPN: has 3 channels. Focus on american sports obviously (NBA, NFL, MLB). They also show a lot of tennis (all GS and M1000) and a lot of Rugby (Argentina NT, super rugby and European leagues). They also do the big Tours of cycling, the golf majors, big competitions of field hockey, some motosport and some obscure sports like is tradition of them. Overall, they are the channel that shows the less football here, though they have their good share of it as well. TyC Sports: used to show a lot of minor sports but now they show/talk 20 hours of football a day. Still, they show national league matches of basketball/volleyball (one per week lol). Their main thing, however, is that they do all multi-sport events (south american, panamerican and olympic games). It's their only redeeming quality these days. Fox Sports: trash. Only football all day since they have the rights for Argentina league and Copa Libertadores. Bizarrelly, in their second channel they show WWE and MMA since they have the rights for some reason. PS. Here is a list of the olympic sports that never ever get broadcasted here outside the olympics: Badminton, Table Tennis, Triathlon, Modern Pentathlon, Sailing, Taekwondo, Waterpolo, Archery, Fencing, Shooting, all winter sports except figure skating. I don't remember a broadcast of even WCh of any these sports.

    Men's Handball IHF World Championship 2019

    Never expected this. The team is raided with injuries, even the starting pivot didn't play today because he got injury yesterday. Our coach is a magician, too bad he's leaving for a belarussian club after the WCh.

    Men's Handball IHF World Championship 2019

    No, only 3 teams qualify, so you need more than 4 points (=2 wins) I think.
  20. It's simply ridiculous to play field hockey with 15 players. It would be like a handball squad with 11 players. Like in handball, everyone except the keeper (and maybe one defender) is running from end to end all the time. And the hockey pitch is almost 100m long. Football is possible (I guess) but it would become even more pathetic than it already is.

    Men's Handball IHF World Championship 2019

    I have zero hope for our team in this competition, the best player is out injured and also our two best right wingers. It's a pity because we played very well at the panam championship. At least many young players will see court time.
  22. Reducing to 15 players a sport which has 11 starters and constant substitutions is simply dumb. I also don't think 17 players would be optimal for a football squad with the amount of injuries and suspensions you see in that sport. As for reductions, I always said I'm against team events of individual sports, so there I guess... Maybe sailing has too many people in windsurf and laser events.
