    To show everyone how retarded this rule of chosing one team sport is ?

    Roller Sports Discussion Thread

    Don't want to waste your party, but not really, a minor sport (and rink hockey is defintly minor in Italy) will tend to shine in minor towns. That goes for any sport, probably everywhere . 50K is a rather good standard for an european top rink hockey club .

    Mediterranean Games 2018

    Is it any wonder that these events still get some cities bidding for them. The financial loss might be substantial.

    What an incredible positive song.
  7. 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
  8. 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 )

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

    Winter Olympic Games 2026

    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...

    Winter Olympic Games 2026

    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).

    Doping Cases and Bans 2018 Thread

    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.

    Him tweeting against Morocco 2026 is the best possible lobby in favor of Marocco 2026.

    Doping Cases and Bans 2018 Thread

    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.

    Shooting Qualification to Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympic Games

    IOC So it's still possible to have a triple starter (rifle/pistol *2 + team event)

    Shooting Qualification to Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympic Games

    Why not ? As long they reached the minimum standard. There are no other limitations for "double starters" than the max number of athletes/teams per event and the minimum standard, right ? Btw, can there be triple or quadruple starters, or is it limited to two events ?

    Men's Rugby WR World Cup 2019

    Unfortunate is the word (whithout irony) . Rugby Europe is a rather amateur organization which have done quite a poor job at developping its owns competitions for years (they don't run SIx Nations nor the european clubs cups). It's more likely than they have made a piss poor decision one more time than antyting else. It's even more likely considering that - The - promising - career of the romanian referee is probably over now - Romania would still have stood a decent chance to make the RWC with the repechage tournaments - RE appointed a french ref for the Spain-Romania game when 2/3 of the spanish squad is actually french born. Occam's razor always.
