Gosling: HaywoodJablonski: It would kill a lot of brackets, but I'd love to see Algeria pull this off

Dude, it won't kill a single bracket because who doesn't have Group H being wiped out by Group G in the round of 16 anyway?


Me. Belgium ( theoretically) doesn't suck
 
2014-06-17 01:27:16 PM  
Oh, that was a beaut.
 
2014-06-17 01:27:27 PM  
GOAL BELGIUM!!!
 
2014-06-17 01:27:36 PM

Belgium 1 - 1 Algeria

Univision GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL Time:  14 Seconds

Lost Thought 00: Lost Thought 00: Pentaxian: Overnight TV ratings for the US-Ghana:

7.0 rating on ESPN. Second highest rating (US-England 2010 drew a 7.5 but aired on a weekend, The 2010 US-Algeria game drew 4.4.)
1.4 Million watched on WatchESPN, 3.8 Million watched on Univision.

By comparison, the NBA finals drew roughly a 10.0 rating, and the NHL finals drew about 3.5

And the Super Bowl drew a 46.5


You know, all four of our professional leagues can stop with this fantasy of having games (and possibly having franchises) overseas.  They will never ever top the following of the major European football leagues, period.

Anyone else smelling a 2-1 Belgium win? Wouldn't surprise me at all.

Wondered if you missed it... that timing would suck

HaywoodJablonski: Me. Belgium ( theoretically) doesn't suck


Doesn't suck? That's one thing. Can stand up to Germany/Portugal/US in a knockout situation? Much dicier proposal.
 
2014-06-17 01:28:35 PM  
Beautiful header! :D
 
2014-06-17 01:28:45 PM  

Gosling: 1-1!


No one really thought 1-0 would hold up did they?
 
2014-06-17 01:29:06 PM  
Arrived just in time for the equalizer. Nice.

Belgium would easily go toe-to-toe with the US and Portugal. Germany is another issue.

I doubt that's their goal. But it's better to have 5% of the market than 0%
 
2014-06-17 01:35:48 PM  
Belgium comeback!
 
2014-06-17 01:35:58 PM  
And that's that.

What was the result from the Belgium-US friendly they played on the opening day of the Cup?
 
2014-06-17 01:36:13 PM  
Comeback is complete and the curse is too.

Blitzed for the 2-1.

Belgium is better than the US in every way, better than Portugal except Ronaldo and worse than Germany in every way.

HOLY [CENSORED]. BELGIAN GOOOOOOOAAAALLLLL!!!

2014-06-17 01:36:53 PM  
This is my utter lack of surprise.

Go Belgium.
 
2014-06-17 01:36:56 PM  
Substitute all the players! Goaaaaal!

2-1 and Belgium figures out how this game was supposed to go in the first place.

It was cancelled due to, if you can believe it, traffic problems.
 
2014-06-17 01:37:47 PM  
About damn time, Belgium.  Sheesh.
 
2014-06-17 01:38:22 PM  
Need one more from Belgium for GD.
 
2014-06-17 01:39:17 PM  
Well that's what you get for having those stupid Kanye sunglasses.
 
2014-06-17 01:39:37 PM  
that's what algeria gets for naming their team after a nazi field marshal

Princip's Sandwich: Comeback is complete and the curse is too.

Blitzed for the 2-1.


As I wanted to say, it's only a comeback if Belgium takes the lead, and yes, the curse of the opening PK goal is rearing its ugly head again...like I said up thread.


/I am a witch after all

Maybe, but the costs involved with having an overseas team/overseas games has to cut into that enough that even the 5% might not make sense.

The Belgium squad includes the following, all of whom starred for their (clubs)

Lukaku (Chelsea/Everton)
Hazard (Chelsea)
Big Hair (Everton/ Man Utd) - yes I know he wasn't great this year
Kompany (Man City)
Vertonghen (Spuds)
Dembele (Spuds)
Vermaelen (Arsenal)
Mirallas (Everton)

I don't care who you are. That's a quality set of players there.
 
2014-06-17 01:40:02 PM  
Belgium is thrashing Algeria now. Those subs really changed it.
