Title: COB SWEEPSTAKE
Post by: proletarius on June 12, 2014, 07:59:33 AM
Not that type RObbso, put your brush away.

Everybody person who confirms their entrance by 5pm today, I will write all teams on a piece of paper and posters and fairly allocate them a team. They become your official team for the world cup and you must change your icon to that teams flag, badge or something related to that country.

Prize: The admiration and jealousy of your fellow COB users.

Who's in?

Me please!

We are doing a good one! We put 32 people's names in 33 envelopes then drew teams from the hat and wrote them on said envelopes! So nobody knows who has who! As soon as a team is eliminated we open it and see who is out! So come the final we will know which two are left but they won't know who they want to win!

14 places left, if we don't get 32 which we probably won't, shall I remove the lowly ranked teams from the door? I'd rather not as it is part of the fun but it does mean we could end up with nobody having the eventual winner, if I miss one of the favourites.

Draw to take place around 5.

I'm taking executive decision and opening Switzerland and Portugal to Gramsic and Ron, as they are taken by stay away posters. I'll toss a coin, heads for Ron Portugal, tails Ron Switzerland.


It was tails.

Gramscic Portugal
Ron - Switzerland

for clarity purposes. It was a 20 pence piece from 1990 which I tossed into my palm and then turned over into the back of my hand.

Netherlands will be an interesting one, we shall see if they can keep up the intensity shown against Spain.

Also the Spain match to see if they can bounce back against a competent Chile side.

Colombia v Ivory Coast
17:00
Japan v Greece
23:00
Uruguay v England
20:00

Will Columbia march on or can Ivory Coast go top?

Will Marlon or Cuntflaps drop out? Or even Plazmuh or Squarewheel?

I'm not so sure. Why would they have different rules for a football league, if the fans grasped the concepts like the rest of the country. I'm not saying that all American fans are like this, just in general it's the mentality of the American sporting populace.

We have different rules between leagues here in Europe, ST.

Look at the way leagues in Spain and England decide the difference between teams on equal points for example. Look at how the Bundesliga has a relgation play-off.

I don't quite get the patronising attitude some people have towards Americans when it comes to sport. I tend to find them a knowledgeable bunch, even when it comes to "soccer". I wonder if some simply dislike the fact that more and more of our brothers and sisters on the other side of the pond are taking to football and feel threatened by this.

The soccer thing gets on my nerves too. Who cares? Aside from the fact 'we' invented the term, it's a word. Language is different in different countries.

The average American knows zilch about football but they don't pretend to. Their 'socccer' fans are as passionate as anybody elses and I can promise you one thing plenty of their grounds have a much better more passionate experience than the Riverside.

I actually think they bring something new to football and they're outperforming us on the biggest stage of all, so we're not in a position to be precious.

Imagine this in the North Stand?

We have different rules between leagues here in Europe, ST.

Look at the way leagues in Spain and England decide the difference between teams on equal points for example. Look at how the Bundesliga has a relgation play-off.

I don't quite get the patronising attitude some people have towards Americans when it comes to sport. I tend to find them a knowledgeable bunch, even when it comes to "soccer". I wonder if some simply dislike the fact that more and more of our brothers and sisters on the other side of the pond are taking to football and feel threatened by this.

That's a very strange ending. Why would I be threatened by this? I don't quite understand this. I don't know of any other league in the world where they don't have drawn games.

I could be wrong but I thought they'd dropped that, I'm fairly sure they have tied games now.

You have to understand the difficulty changing sporting culture and perceptions.  They tried to assimilate it with the sports they're more accustomed to. It was succesful, but now they're embracing foreign leagues.

It's about time. There is something wrong with the American sporting insularity. Almost every other nation is happy to compete with the world. All major American sports are played primarily in America. Baseball, football, basketball. All these sports america are dominant in. They didn't seem to want sports where others compete.

They should try and embrace over sports.

I'm happy to say they are giving rugby a go.

Insular is the correct word but in the true meaning not the disparaging context. USA is a huge place and was a very long way from everywhere else until the advent of planes, tv and the internet.

Sporting cultures generally go back to the industrial revolution when we need something for men to do beyond fucking whores and killing one another to keep them happy to do an awful slave job 15 hours a day. Theirs happened 3 weeks on a boat away from anybody else.

America is a wonderful country with great traditions, we scorn at them because ours are older, but none of us were even thought of when they started their sporting legacy so we're only jumping on the bandwagon of people before us.

I completely disagree with the "isolation" side of what you are trying to say. Admittedly to a larg extent Canada takes on interest in American dominated sports but Mexico play a lot of football. as does central and southern America (i.e. the entire continent Nroth of the United States). The west Indies, not far away geographically, has cricket.

Football managed to evolve into a global game way before communications made it possible to be truly "shared" globally.

Insular was meant in a pejorative sense. It's by far Americas worst, and most dangerous, trait as a nation.

Patriotism is fine. Except when it's to the detriment of your relationship with the rest of the world.
