    Well, when they’re homeless because their parents refuse to support them, and businesses refuse to hire them based solely because of their sexuality. From what I understand, this hostel is just about providing them support so that they can find employment, and build a new support system.

    Which team sport though? Outside of Baseball/Softball or Cricket I can’t see any others really challenging for/deserving a spot on the Olympic program. Plus, even Baseball/Softball and Cricket suffer from many of the same problems as Water Polo in terms of competitive diversity.
     
    Edit: Rugby 15s could also be in the mix, but again, similar issues, and more quotas.

    Sad news. One of the all-time greats, any sport, Hank Aaron has passed away.

    Yeah, but Americans don’t know that.  It just sounds better to say “We want Swedish-style socialism” than it does to say the truth which is “We want Chinese-style Socialism.”

    Scandinavia isn’t a good example of socialism working because none of the Scandinavian countries are socialist...

    There are a lot of centrist Democrats in the senate. And I’m not just talking about Manchin and Sinema. Sanders would not be able to get 50, let alone 60, votes for the more extreme aspects if his agenda.
     
    Trump signed well over 2T in COVID-19 relief into law. Does that make him a Communist? Is Germany a communist country because they don’t have college tuition? Communism and Socialism isn’t just synonymous for any political position you don’t like.

    There's also one other obvious mistake: the continental representation shouldn't be decided by a tournament where already qualified teams can play. For example, we lost our chance for the European quota because Spain (who already qualified for Tokyo) beat us in the Semifinal. Spain was the only team that beat us at the European championship. Meanwhile Russia, who we beat in the group stage, got the quota because the 2nd place in our group meant that they avoided Spain until the final.

    It is not our fault other continents withdrew from the tournament.  The difference in this sport between the top 7 european countries and the rest is extremely big, everyone knew that.
     
    Blame FINA and IOC to have a Final Olympic Qualifier system that need so useless large amount of nations including piss poor teams like SVK or ISR, but keep in mind that we or ISR are not here as a specially invited teams or by shopping buying the place, we are here because the girls earned this place by qualifying to this tournament last year at the EURO.

    I strongly support continental representation (of at least 1 team) at the olympics so yeah, that's the only mistake in my view.

    And that was bullshit as well. If they have to limit it to 6 teams, that sport shouldn't be at the Games. And it's not the top 12 teams' fault that the rest of the world doesn't give a shit about women's water polo. Nothing is stopping Croatia and Serbia for example take it more seriously because they already know how to play the sport on the men's side.

    These are not the European Games
     
    Australia and China are strong teams... Canada came within a goal of beating Hungary and Netherlands in 2019. These 3 teams deserve it for sure.

    But they deserve 12 teams because it's an Olympic team event. Either a team sport deserves to be at the Olympics, and therefore it should have 12 teams, or it doesn't deserve to be at the Olympics at all.
