BBC Studio - Looks stunning in the night


ARD - Germany


Edit: Sorry, channel is ZDF.

The BBC studio looks amazing at night, but ITVs beach side studios are just too tempting...I think someond lobbed a beer bottle at them in the earlier matches?

What's her name?

I loved those studios!

Wondering what broadcasters will prepare for Rio 2016!!!

I think you're pretty much looking at them. I'd say some long term leases had been negotiated beforehand. These are real hotspots.

Bikinis and all!

TVNZ just finished doing a report on "diving" at the WC so far...up to two hours of time wasting with false tackles. This was the result of yesterday's blatant cheating in the Mexico v Netherlands. In which Robbin dived causing a penalty against Mexico.

I now hope Netherlands are defeated in the QFs...typical dirty dutchmen!

It is neither here nor there if Robben went down theatrically. The Laws of the Game are clear and were applied correctly. You cannot trip NOR attempt to trip in the box. The foul will result in a penalty. Contact was made when Marquez put out his leg in an attempt to impede an attacking players position on goal. Look at Marquez's reaction. He knew it was a dumb foul.

Been away for a while due to important things like a new job. But Sagacious' new link on how the Brazilian newspapers' various ways of disappointment, shock, anger, humiliation, and sadness across the nation reacting to the stunning 7-1 to Germany's Nationalmannschaft--and all the dispirting morgue-like dejected reactions from fans--during the mo(u)rning after certainly is worthy of attention here:

Sure is.

Back to the Brazilian mou(0)rning the day after. Globo TV/SporTV reporter Fernanda Gentil could barely hold back her emotions following the humiliating loss at the Selecao's World Cup headquarters in Teresopolis live on Fatima Bernandes' show:
