  1. NBCSN still showing the drummers. And the commentators can't shut up. I'm in for a long show.
  2. Woops the last tweet was already posted, mod please edit.
  3. The ban's been extended to Pyeongchang now! Woooooo! http://www.abc.net.au/news/2016-08-30/russia-now-banned-from-2018-paralympic-winter-games/7796888 Last week the Lausanne-based CAS, sport's highest tribunal, rejected an RPC appeal against the Rio ban. The decision to exclude Russia's team means at least 260 competitors from the country are now set to miss the September 7-18 Paralympics.

  4. "Marvelous Games" HE COULDN'T DO IT! HE COULDN"T CALL THEM THE BEST EVER! We're on Atlanta level now guys.
  5. No verdict yet. I'm waiting til the Paras are over, which is what everyone SHOULD be doing.
  6. Well like Basketball and Football, that really only applies for the mens side (This aint no Open). For the women? This absolutely beats out any "womens majors" profile-wise. This aint Tennis where everyone plays the same grand slams with the same prestige.
  7. Granted, NBC/Comcast does own Golf Channel in the US (Not to mention that I use 4 screens to handle different feeds & streams) so it was pretty easy to follow whilst still balancing other events. But yeah, for the layman, I can see the lack of interest in following the tournament other than maybe some brief highlights. Of course the same can be said for quite a few other more "niche" sports at the Games, since, well, that's the beauty of them. And I do agree that Rugby was an absolute success. I do think both will be kept in the long term. The response from the pros who did go to the Golf
  8. Speak for yourselves. The back 2 rounds of the Mens Tournament were thrilling! Real fun stuff! Lemme guess, not baseball fans either?
  9. Both of them. As I said in the Swimming thread, no way to really single one out. They're both in the Olympic pantheon with guys like Jim Thorpe, Jesse Owens, and Michael Johnson. A better question would be, if Eaton keeps winning World Championship decathlons and (maybe) wins in Tokyo, would he also be considered in the same discussion? My thoughts are yes, but he seems to be pretty much invisible to the public (Even with all his commercials).
  10. I'm actually shocked at how well everyone did considering that London was even worse! Oh yeah, this is typical stuff at least for the 50k.
  11. Diniz shat himself twice! Though... er... that second time involved quite some blood. Then both times wiped himself with a sponge and threw the sponge into the crowd. It's amazing, after all that and collapsing/stopping twice, he still made 8th. So, uh, here's a collage the internet made up.
  12. Well, there's that "last straw" I was talking about. Even with the extra funding, 10 nations still might not make it, along with the cuts listed in the BBC article. When the Paras finish this year, the IPC's either gonna start heavily scrutinzing Olympic bids for Paralympic readiness, or just go on their own, because what's happening right now is a disgrace, if not also a probable breach of contract. When I evaluate/judge a host city, I count how they handled the Paras as well. And so far, as Craven put it, "Never before in the 56-year history of the Paralympic Games have we faced circumstance
  13. I will when we have full details of the case and publicized evidence in full. Hearsay and patches of back-and-forth statements say nothing and mean nothing.
  14. Done, over with. No need for "perspective". You wanna appear better than any claimed "bad sport" Europeans during the Euros? Then don't do the same, and you'll be free of any criticism of the sort. And they didn't murder a ref for a red, they murded a ref for stabbing a player by beheading him.
  15. Gleefully ignore later posts and information. Go ahead. Because there's no point talking to cherry-pickers.
