I suspect any one decent shopping for a payday game with a Power 5 school could find a better check than what Arkansas can write. And they wouldn't have to go to Arkansas.
Did this all start as an actual investigation of LSU or did it start as part of the criminal investigation of this Funes? Did the 180 grand come from the funds stolen from the foundation? The FEDs or whatever investigative body went to LSU tracking the missing loot and now the football team is under the microscope. My guess is this Funes doesn't get caught and it is still just basketball under investigation.
I think this is the really big thing. Cell phones and the internet have just made it so the most egregious instances get spread far and wide. I don't think we're more or less prone to losing our tempers than in the past.
I umped little league in the late 80's while in high school. Got an angry earful on more than one occasion. Had everyone on both sides yelling at me over a ball that came down "just" fair because all I did was indicate fair. Even the smart "nice" coach who knew I was right in the end had lost it. No one came after me but I also always made a point to be on my way in a hurry.
Well I'd like to thank him for giving me an excuse to look at Scarlett Johansson gifs. I didn't know my day needed this.
Certainly. The list is quite a long one. Is one of the reasons the list doesn't really get worked on though "it's just soccer?"
This lateral movement sewed confusion for defenses,
In this context shouldn't it be sowed?
I doubt it. Unless they go out and put six or more past Chile just so they can stop celebrating and show they learned their lesson and are in fact classy.
No where in that article does it say what a USWNT game earns versus what a USMNT game earns. This entire argument hinges on the men not winning compared to the women. From your article:
The differences in World Cup prize money offered by FIFA are well documented, and the disparity continues to rankle many who argue the Women's World Cup deserves more. For instance, the German men's team got around $35 million for its 2014 World Cup win, while the U.S. women only got $2 million for winning the Women's World Cup the following year.
From that alone this is all feel good we're-not-sexists posturing because the men don't win. They're claiming they do better work than the men aren't they? Like they did here: https://www.cbssports.com/soccer/news/a-dallas-fc-under-15-boys-squad-beat-the-u-s-womens-national-team-in-a-scrimmage/
And people need to stop making this worn out joke if they want the men's team to attain the sorts of success the women's team has.
This is the post where I go on an inappropriate for this forum rant about the perception underlying this conversation. I'll just leave this interesting video instead.
Here's that conversation from 2015: https://www.nbcsports.com/northwest/world-cup/equal-pay-womens-world-cup-players-seriously
I just dug around. In 2015 the average attendance was ~26,000 for the women's matches. In 2018 the average attendance for the men's matches was ~47,000. The men earn more because the men earn more even with less success.
And the success for the women's team which has been ongoing for some time now is in no way putting an end to the "It's only soccer" attitude with regards to the men's game.
I'm just curious what the conversation might be if Sweden's Shield Maidens put fourteen past Thailand.
That's undoubtedly the correct take. Height doesn't give you the right feet for being in goal.
And it isn't like they didn't need the height in mid-field as well.
No. Alex Morgan hadn't been there before. Five goals ties the record for most in a cup match. She hadn't been there before. Only Michelle Akers had been there before in 1991.
They put this really tall gal (for their team) into midfield as a sub. All I could think was, "Wouldn't you be a bit better off with that height and reach in goal?" Granted the woman wasn't getting any help but a Hope Solo sized player might have kept some of those out at least briefly.
How often does a player get even a hat trick? Five goals is the record for most goals in a cup match. She hasn't been there before. Only Michelle Akers has been there before. I'm going to cut her some slack on being excited to tie a record.
I think six goals was enough to win the golden boot in 2015.
Yep. This scoreline makes it harder for Sweden to win the group on a draw with the US. You have to put every ball in the net you can.
The only reason I could see to dial it back was to save legs but those women didn't really even look winded. They kept a blistering pace for the entire match. I hope that fitness level wasn't an illusion because of the competition.
I don't see that say the head coach being an employee of the private corporation can then exempt the team from any sort of compliance requirements with regards the NCAA. It seems shady as all get out but I don't see this giving FSU carte blanche to end around NCAA regs.
I don't think you really went for the whole enchilada with that.
I knew somebody would get there before me.
I think I'd want to take the month of December to drive cross country.
