Pretty sure that walking out onto a field and playing soccer in swampy-ass Brazil, in front of 80,000 screaming hooligans, while representing your country takes mental toughness and courage, or whatever other BS descriptor you'd like to use. 

And if you don't think bodily harm can occur at any time in soccer, just watch those Stoke City asshats break legs in the EPL every year.

Ivan Barbashev, Adrian Kempe or Julius Honka are the most likely in my mind, maybe a guy like Kevin Fiala or Alex Tuch. 

Comment 18 Jun 2014

Go right ahead. I'd find it stupid, but I could not care less about the nickname of Germany's national team. I'd be far more worried about things that actually affect Jews now, like BSD.

Within the judges ruling they state there is nothing that explicitly prohibits the trademarking of disparaging remarks. There is not a single clause in the Lanham Act that explicitly prohibits the trademarking of disparaging terms.

Again, who determines if the remark actually brings a group into contempt or disrepute? That's a horridly worded policy, that provides US Patent Office with too much leeway. 

Comment 18 Jun 2014

As an American Jew, I would buy that New York Jews ball cap in a heartbeat, it's hilarious. I think Chief Wahoo could be viewed as far more offensive than the term redskins, and even then I wouldn't force the Indians to change their mascot, mainly because it's not my place to tell the owner of the Indians what to do with their franchise. 

Comment 18 Jun 2014

May disparage? Who determines what is, and isn't a disparaging remark/term? That law/policy is an utter farce. 

Comment 18 Jun 2014

Massive overstep by the federal government and U.S. Patent Office. Regardless of your views on the team's name, any change should be brought about by the league, or the owner of the private franchise, the actual private entities that own the rights to the team, not the federal government. Makes you question the purpose/intent of intellectual property laws in our "free society."

This Brazil-Mexico game is going to be a divefest, there may be some Oscar worthy performances this afternoon. As for the Belgians, never doubted them, they just have too much talent. 

Comment 16 Jun 2014

Yes, and Portugal is most likely without Coentrao and Pepe, their two best defenders, along with the fact that the Portuguese can't play as team. They have plenty of talent, but can't play as a team. 

Comment 16 Jun 2014

Aww didn't remember that. Good that they did.
