Posted in: No plans to change fair play rule: FIFA See in context

If they’re not going to have the 2 teams play an actual tiebreaker match, then it’s as good a decider as any. After counting goals, goal difference and every other goal-related metric, how dirty a team is seems like a natural step.

The big mistake was scheduling the matches at different times. It’s only natural that the team in the later match will look at the results of the earlier match and proceed in a way that best suits them. Whiners will be whiners though.

There is no denying the racist and misogynistic elements to this issue, but I don’t know. Maybe it’s my age or I don’t know what, but part of me keeps thinking 3 things: 1- The internet enables a lot of bad, immature and anonymous behavior, 2- giving badly behaved, immature and anonymous people attention just gives them what they want, 3- the recent media fetish of making every single thing about race and sex only gives these brats an opportunity to carry out their modus operandi. I’m willing to bet that some don’t even believe what they’re writing, they just do it because internet.

I saw the foul the kid was called for on YouTube. More like some kind of attempt at an ippon in Judo. I don’t buy that the kid was upset having a foul called. The foul was too obvious.

I'm definitely not on the MJ bandwagon, but there is no question about it being infinitely less bad than paint thinner.

I mean, seriously? You're comparing it with paint thinner?

Posted in: Ronaldo scores hat-trick as Portugal draws 3-3 with Spain See in context

I'm not buying the GOAT and man of the match arguments purely based on this game. Ronaldo had 2 weak goals. The first goal, on the edge of the box, a big dive, and another defender still behind Fernandez? The kick should have been from the side. The second goal was the keeper's fault.

He certainly showed great "expression," though and did a good job in selling himself.

Posted in: Celebrity deaths force media to examine suicide reporting See in context

It’s been documented that suicide is contagious. Reporting on it inevitably leads to an uptick in the suicide rate. It’s no different from school shootings in this respect.

So the country that made him rich is wrong, but his parents are off the hook completely?

He could go to the Ivory Coast, apply for a green card, and make everything right. While killing time there, he could support the local economy by spending his Hollywood dough.

Star Wars is really sucking now. How many of these movies are they going to keep pumping out? Shoulda quit after the first 3.

The only sequels I watch these days are Conan.

Posted in: 'Ocean's 8,' a glamorous crime tale for the #MeToo age See in context

Look at all the little boys making negative comments about a movie that’s not even out yet. Some men truly are afraid of women being seen as equals.

It's mostly the same people who claim they want to commit medieval torture on the mother and stepfather of the murdered child Yua Funato. I wonder how the two things are are linked?

Or, it could be they don't want to see a mindless remake done for the cynical purpose of milking a social movement for every dollar possible.

One would think that with the whole Weinstein episode and all you might be a little more skeptical of what goes on in Hollywood...

Posted in: Japan to promote bike sharing for eco-friendly society See in context

Yeah, bikes are fine, but pedestrians should always come first. I love walking. Cyclists scare me. I think the rules for cyclists need to be strengthened.

Back in Canada too, it seems most cyclists think the rules of the road don't apply to them. Running reds, zipping in and out of bike lanes, car lanes, onto sidewalks, they think it all belongs to them. And they get pissed off when car drivers can't see them. They don't give way to anybody. And on top of all of this, the local gov in Montreal thinks it's a good idea to relax cycling laws further, officially giving them the nod to run reds precisely because that's what they do anyway.

Cyclists in Japan are bad enough. The influx of a bunch of tourists on bikes can only make the situation worse.

Posted in: Going 'Overboard': Hollywood's glut of gender-swap remakes See in context

Remakes in general pretty bad and should be banned along with prequels and most sequels that are not part of a trilogy.

The fact that some of these remakes are done under the guise of empowerment just makes them that much more of a joke. Seriously, did anyone really think that the Ghostbusters was really necessary? What kind of looney toon fairy land do these people live in? SMH

Yubaru

You as a supposed lawmaker and elected representative of the people have a moral and ethical responsibility to ensure that the people can do or choose whatever life they want for themselves. You have no right to expect, ask, beg, nor urge, anyone to do what you can not!

Relax. Of course he has the right to express his opinion. It’s a free country as they say. Just because he comes off as a dinosaur who obviously doesn’t want to understand the real issue doesn’t mean he cannot say it. Plus the guy has six kids, so it’s hardly being hypocritical. I think you’re under the mistaken understanding that people will feel obligated to follow his “orders.” On that point I’m 99% sure you have nothing to worry about.
