Wimbledon has so many dumb rules. They have a roof and lights — why not finish the match?

Re: World Lacrosse Champions (Israel 2018)

I'm trying to figure out the format.

In the blue group top two make the semis, next 2 make the quarters and then the bottom two drop into a crazy play-in tournament for 2 spots?
The play-in might be more fun then the final four!

Modric must win the Ballon D'or this year right? Break the string of Ronaldo and Messi, they have won since 2008. In fact they have been 1st and 2nd since 2008 other than Iniesta finishing 2nd in 2010.

Trivia: who won the World Footballer of the Year (now Ballon D'Or) in 2007?

Re: World Cup 2018 Knock Out Rounds

England were pretty bad. Their only shot on target they had was the Trippier free kick. They just had no ideas going forward and needed to test a keeper who was hurt last game.

They just aren't talented enough yet, but this is a good building block for 2020 and 2022.

Weird, i don't think the ref raised the flag when the pass came in to Kane. The flag went up when the ball went out of play?

But then it would be a corner.

Re: World Cup 2018 Knock Out Rounds

At some point the field is too big for the limited number of players to run? Can't put two passes together. The result of fewer players would be the same as 3x3 OT in hockey. Doesn't guarantee a goal would be scored but would allow the most skilled players to have a bigger role in ending the game. ...

Re: World Cup 2018 Knock Out Rounds

I have suggested to play a bit longer. Another 30 minutes with a 5th sub.
Or change to two 20 minute halves with an additional sub in each.

Or a 7 shot shootout so more weaker players have to kick.
