drewogatory: I can't (well, I can, but I'm not going to) imagine a scenario where the ban would include Garands and carbines. They wouldn't mess with the CMP surely? M1A's might be thrown under the bus, but at least there's a chance of just making them fixed mag and using stripper clips. As for Mini's, maybe Bill Ruger's shameless rolling over in '94 will help Ruger's cause somehow. As far as 10/22's go, might as well ban freaking water, they have to be about the most widely owned firearms ever.


Uh, never mind that, that's another tab.

desertgeek: FOX Soccer is on life support, but they have the Champions League and will have the World Cup in 2018.


That isn't much to go on with. With beIN Sport coming in for those CL and EL rights in the next few years, FSC might not survive past the next two years. The only things they have going for them are the Men's and Women's World Cups (2018 and 2015 respectively). The only way I see them making it is if they went for the Collegiate games or tried to get a deal with the Eredivisie or Tippeligaen, and even those won't help in the long run.

BeIN has Spain,Italy and Germany? Who has Argentina/Brazil?

ESPN has some Brazil, and one of the Spanish channels has Liga MX. Pretty sure Argentina might be open in the US.

Well, remember when GolTV first started they primarily showed South American football, so maybe Fox can find a niche. Fox Soccer Plus should be fine, they can always show more League,Union and AFL, Gaelic, hurling etc. like they used to. Scottish Prem might draw a few viewers, I'll usually make sure and catch Hearts when they are on.

In truth, I think the Plus channel will get cannibalized before FSC goes away. If nothing else, they could still have the FA Cup and League Cup to keep English soccer on their channel. NBC's deal only covers the EPL.

Everton levels.

Then a shiat sending off of Carlton Cole. Sad refereeing this game.

SomebodyElsesShoes: Everton levels.

Then a shiat sending off of Carlton Cole. Sad refereeing this game.


A damning statement on that from the BBC text commentary:

Former Leicester striker Steve Claridge on Final Score:

"Then the ball went over Carlton Cole's head and he is trying to control it with his foot and cannot see Leighton Baines. His red card says to me that the referee does not understand the game."
 
2012-12-22 11:36:32 AM  
Really Citeh? Really? God I'm having the worst luck with bankers lately. Gonna have to go back to banker + ins on same match.
 
2012-12-22 11:36:58 AM  
That Everton goal really helped my predos (the go-ahead one) so now if Spurs score I'd be eternally grateful.
 
2012-12-22 11:39:20 AM  

desertgeek: His red card says to me that the referee does not understand the game.


Steve is right. His foot was high, but it was not very dangerous or intentional when he caught Baines on the shoulder. Everton lead now, which is good. But it's harsh on West Ham.
 
2012-12-22 11:41:04 AM  
Ameobi Snr scores. Phew!
 
2012-12-22 11:41:12 AM  
Is City really going to draw with f*cking Reading? Goddamnit.
 
2012-12-22 11:42:21 AM  
Of course the day I put my banker on City at home, they seemingly give up the points.
Gotta stop putting my banker against the teams at the bottom. That's two weeks in a row it's screwed me.

mitchcumstein1: Is City really going to draw with f*cking Reading? Goddamnit.


200pts doesn't seem like much of a lead right now...

Not being able to see it (working and streams are blocked), just reading various sites shows that it was at worst a yellow. Hell, even Everton fans are saying it wasn't a red.

Heh, Everton's Gibson just got sent off for a high foot. TBH, it was worse than Cole's, but still not a red.
 
2012-12-22 11:51:15 AM  
Poor old Reading.

Still. 30pts!
 
2012-12-22 11:51:20 AM  
Gareth Barry saves City's ass.
 
2012-12-22 11:51:32 AM  
Oh thank god. Saved the banker.
 
2012-12-22 11:51:40 AM  
GARETH BARRY SCORES! Now I've seen everything.
 
2012-12-22 11:54:11 AM  
You know it's bad when the West Ham fans chant "You don't know what your doing!" to the ref after an Everton player gets sent off.

That's awesome.
 
2012-12-22 11:55:28 AM  
Okay, I just spent 90 minutes rooting for Manchester City. I need a shower.
 
2012-12-22 11:56:22 AM  
I think I am on 0 points for the weekend after Newcastle scored and ruined it for me and Spurs failed to score. The only saving grace is that I got a perfect on Everton. Why did I think Southampton would win? Why did I think Newcastle and QPR would draw (to be fair they almost did). Also I need to do my predos earlier so I stop starting at -10 getting the first result incorrect.

I... I just can't add anything to that.
 
2012-12-22 11:57:13 AM  
Also, thanks for nothing Norwich!
 
2012-12-22 11:58:21 AM  
Damn it our winning streak is at an end.

Looking on the bright side the mighty Norwich are only 15 points from being in the premier league next year.
 
2012-12-22 11:59:29 AM  
Time for a swim. Back for the second half of the late game.
 
2012-12-22 12:11:16 PM  
Glad the toffees got the 3pts, but all I could think after that game was how in the hell did the NFL replacement refs talk their way into BPL jobs?
 
2012-12-22 12:39:34 PM  
Martin Skrtel! Liverpool 1-0!
 
2012-12-22 12:39:47 PM  

ADubs86: /please don't shiat the bed again Skrtel


Think he reads Fark threads before matches?
 
2012-12-22 12:42:35 PM  
When the BBC text says "he almost decapitated a Fulham defender there," that tells me that it's a goal I need to see ASAP.

SomebodyElsesShoes: You know it's bad when the West Ham fans chant "You don't know what your doing!" to the ref after an Everton player gets sent off.


To backup this comment, from the BBC:

BBC Sport Chief Football Writer Phil McNulty at Upton Park:
"No-one can accuse West Ham fans of being one-eyed about the two dismissals. They were equally critical of Darron Gibson's red card for Everton as they were of Carlton Cole's."

West Ham has said that they will appeal Cole's sending off.

Remember Jonjo's one time juggle then volley last year against Chelsea after the FA cup? Imagine it closer to goal and just rocketed.

News from La Liga:

Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho has not picked Iker Casillas in goal tonight - it's the first time he's been dropped in 10 years! That is a run in the team.
 
2012-12-22 01:04:45 PM  
Casillas not playing for Madrid. Is that twat Mourinho trying to get himself fired?
 
2012-12-22 01:05:28 PM  
4 seconds!
 
2012-12-22 01:06:49 PM  
STEVIE!

I do believe that is Stewart Downing's first PL assist for Liverpool.
 
2012-12-22 01:06:59 PM  
Gerrard with a sweet goal. 2-0
 
2012-12-22 01:07:17 PM  

689908: 4 seconds!


HA! Though I did cheat by just copying what the BBC said.
 
2012-12-22 01:07:52 PM  
O Captain, my captain!
 
2012-12-22 01:11:13 PM  
HAHA even the Beeb is saying "what the hell, Downing?" on that one.
 
2012-12-22 01:18:38 PM  
I'm at a bar watching the pool match and the audio is for the barca game. The commenters are giving so much verbal relations to barca and especially messi. The dumbest thing was ...and I quote.. "E=mc2... And the m stands for messi."

You are correct. 45th PL game for Liverpool and his 1st assist.

Embarrassing really, but maybe that opens the flood gates.
 
2012-12-22 01:39:05 PM  
What the fark? Downing?

Are you a wizard?

STEWIE DOWNING!

First league assist and now first league goal? What is this madness?
 
2012-12-22 01:40:45 PM  
If this was last weekend, I'd say the Mayans were right and we're all doomed. What. The. Fark. Stewart Downing.
