  1. I realize that not every player in the squad is up to par, but recently I think that Davies has been doing well at shielding the ball when he gets marked. In the sense that he seems to recognize defensive pressure a bit better to at least evade tackles and then be productive afterwords. He definitely still hits some wayward passes but I think he's raised his game a bit, even if it's not at the requisite (starting 11) standard. There's genuine pressure to start in this team and he's recognized that there are things he needs to add to his game to be included.
  2. I have a lot of thoughts on that Mark, really glad you brought it up. I'll put something together after the game!
  3. I watched it. Watched the match live then I've seen the video. I realize I have a very different perspective and opinion to most here on TT. Not necessarily profound lol, but alternative nonetheless. It doesn't mean I'm trying to be loud for the sake of it. I've already said that I'll let that go if that reasoning is indeed the truth. Without being more comprehensive there's no way to know. Thus the cycle. Whether he did or not the tools to be sure are lacking. That's more my point. No one's really questioned these things beyond speculation so perhaps it could be worth it. Equity is
  4. For sure, breaking even would be great business in this case. No love lost and best for both parties. Hopefully no more Raiola tumult either. He seems to allow his ego to influence his client's decisions.
  5. Sure, I get all that, not worth the back and forth. I'll also admit that I was reacting to this reasoning the most, in regards to the most recent incident. In my mind it's significantly different to just being thankful and raise one's hands as a gesture of praise. I take no issue with the second reasoning at all. But in a more broad way, I guess I'm saying that I think matters of equality are a blind spot for this forum, football, and sports in general. It's always frustrating to see people rush to defend their players so much that they abandon causality or systemic issues. I've
  6. I can see the reasonings deduced from all these internet detectives, but no actually I don't agree. Hateful people visibly support causes they shouldn't all the time and when pressed they don't really own up to it. T***p is a perfect example of that. Or any Republican voter that lied in early polls about their support for him, because there's evidence of that. Happened in 2016 and we knew leading up to this election that many people didn't want to be known supporters until they cast their anonymous votes. Different scale but incredibly similar sentiments. The race was "shockingly" cl
  7. Come on. At the International match in 2019 his salute in support of a tyrannical military campaign got completely swept under the rug. From Wiki Turkish Motives Recent increase in jobless rate and electoral collaboration of opposition parties lead to significant AKP defeats in the 2019 Istanbul mayoral election, signaling difficulties for the leadership party.[98] Military operations are known to boost nationalism and Turkey executive's popularity.[98] It is also seen as an effective way to break apart opposition alliances, between pro-Kurdish and pro-peace representatives
  8. Scored some decent goals and I thought his second season would have been better.
  9. The Blue Lives Matter flag very quickly replaced the Confederate Flag at NASCAR races once the latter was banned this past summer. The Blue Lives Matter flag is also a callously merchandized response to a cry for help. It would not exist if people didn't first say to law enforcement, "please stop shooting us, amongst (many) other things..." To object to what Colin Kaepernick was kneeling for is to condone the conditions that inspired the gesture in the first place. Often times, most times - when people want politics kept out of sports it really just means they're personally uncomfort
  10. But even this is a myopic view. It paints the depravity of Pre Civil War America with a regional brush - a national brush, even. It's a much larger problem, but to your specific point, it wasn't that they never thought they lost the war, it was that they weren't ever made to suffer the consequences typically befitting the loser of a war. Southern whites picked up the pieces, largely left to their own devices. Union folks had cousins on either side. All that changed was the lifting of a travel ban once the Confederacy fell. Now the wealthy could begin their agricultural commerce again and see t
  11. They'd rather watch things burn than cede even an ounce of privilege.
  12. This is racism. Multi-tiered and multi-faceted racism. Physically violent, institutional and completely systemic. From the lack of consequences given to those inciting this behavior, to the aiding and abetting of the insurgents by law enforcement, to the disbelief that this is something that can happen in this day and age. What happened at the capital yesterday is the most American thing I've ever witnessed in my life. The policing plan was to allow them to do what they wanted because many of those police agree with those they helped. They are the same people. Those involve
