Re: NFL - Washington name change

Why not just drop the dumb yank mascot shite and go with Washington DC? As for Redskins, I’m surprised it lasted as long as it did. Just an outright slur. Yeah nah. Team names > boring bland FC, RFC, etc. As for the name, it's funny, because in a way the football team being named Redskins helped ch...

Well I haven't posted here for a very long time. The accusations of the quality of the poster going down are interesting. Perhaps unfounded. However there does definitely seem to be a clear rise in the prima donna.

Re: NFL - Washington name change

It highlights how unusual the Redskins name is and how is should be gassed. The Redskins is the most egregious but not that unusual https://scatteredthoughtsandroguewords.files.wordpress.com/2013/09/sport-teams-with-indian-names.jpg https://www.sltrib.com/resizer/FTYjCiBLPBUieULlzAAlP8bxYhE=/970x0/...

Re: **OFFICIAL** English Rugby Thread

I think part of the problem is that we are trying to play so flat - it's a high-risk/high-reward approach that when it comes off looks amazing but when it is disrupted, either by the opposition defence or (just as likely) our own ineptitude, suddenly looks very, well, flat. I also think that we rel...

Re: **OFFICIAL** English Rugby Thread

Besides the weird dependence on Farrell who has little attacking ability, his obsession with moving players to new positions when they clearly aren't suited there and locks in at No.6, a move that even undid the kiwis, why is Jones so obsessed with England being ultra physical?

I'm hoping to do ruck marks. Also want to see how we got into their 22 so often. We created a huge number of chances, whilst lacking Mako and Billy, and then Manu too. An England side with MV, Sink, BV and Manu, should find it very easy to attack. We managed to get in strong positions repeatedly, d...
