  1. Yep, that's the only realistic scenario that none of the teams come back to the UK. Not sure it is a viable option but seems to be the only plausible option.
  2. Absolutely. So petty. Wildly different strategies. If you're main selling point is that you are a good No.2 why throw all that away with these shenanigans. Which makes me think Bottas already knows he is out the door at the end of the year. Still, I'm surprised Toto took it so well, at least publicly. For the first time in a while Mercedes are in a proper fight and it is going to come down to Hamilton or Verstappen. Then you have Bottas deliberately getting in the way and potentially costing the team a win. I'd have been tempted to have him sit out a race frankly.
  3. Frankly I think the decision has been made to replace Bottas with Russell and that it will be announced around the Summer break, presumably along with the announcement of a contract extension for Hamilton. I think Hamilton will be here for a few more years but Mercedes now need to look at the after Hamilton era and Bottas is never going to feature as team leader in that conversation. Better then to bed in Russell for a few years, let him learn from Hamilton and then if he doesn't work out you can go outside the stable and look at Verstappen or Nando. There's no benefit to pairing
  4. I agree. Nintendo could use a few moderately budgeted games to fill the gaps in its release schedule. If you budget a new Pilot Wings or F-Zero right then there is no need to lose money and you can keep your schedule alive with releases. It is not like Nintendo look at their release schedule and puzzle over how they could possibly fit in another release.
  5. Yep, and potentially don't want Disney+ content competing against movies released into Cinemas on Fridays.
  6. Yeah, I can't go back to 1080 for things like Far Cry 5 when 4K is availible.
  7. Good News! They've finally halted production of the show. https://trekmovie.com/2021/04/24/star-trek-discovery-temporarily-pauses-production-due-to-off-set-covid-contact/
  8. Interestingly, I managed to survive to the end by just holing up in a house with a shotgun. I didn't think much of not being able to extract or not since the whole thing was more for show than gameplay but I guess that might have been a nice conclusion to the players who did manage to survive. I played it twice, one surviving to the end, one as a zombie but I didn't feel you needed to 'play' it any more than that. I thought the rebirth island bit was a nice touch, was completely thrown by some of the changes though. Interested to see what happens tonight although frankly would rat
  9. I just think comparing F1 and Football League is comparing apples with oranges. The truth is there are hundreds of football teams which would, if given the option, play in the Super League if they were able to. There are dramatic start up costs which means the number of teams that would race next year in F1 if they were able to is pretty much simply the ten teams you have now. Its a closed shop insofar that there are not many teams which are capable, financially or technically, of entering F1. F1's ongoing fear is the prospect of losing teams and not bein
  10. Not in the sense of the Super League. Whilst F1 doesn't have relegation, new teams can join. There is nothing in the rules preventing a new team from joining if they wish to. Also, in F1 the individual drivers are as important as the teams and in most years a few of the top F2 drivers will end up being promoted to F1. Therefore there is definitely promotion for drivers to F1 and nothing to prevent new teams from joining. Very different to the Super League scenario.
  11. And what ultimately can a Court do. If PSG doesn't turn up, or the Atatürk Olympic Stadium declines to host the final can a Court compel another team or stadium to step in. What if UEFA declines to simply televise the final? There are plenty of ways to hurt the semi finals and final of this year's competition even without banning teams. It is actually a pity we don't have any of the German teams still in play who are more likely to just not bother turning up. Devalue the remaining tournament games by making them a laughing stock and ensuring any eventual winner always has an * nex
  12. I so wish they had included the pricks bit!
  13. Yeah, as I said in my lengthier post it is about pressing the nuclear option and basically making the big Clubs look over the precipice towards mutually assured destruction if they proceed with this plan. We're talking caps on players wages, dismantling of existing TV remuneration deals, Government passing a law preventing Super League games from being televised, stops on working visas being permitted to football players, compulsory purchases of football club grounds, changing fit and proper person test for owning a Club to prevent Clubs from being listed on a stock exchange or owned by a fore
  14. Maybe. But how many battles do the Clubs really want to take on in one go. Premier League ceases to exist, a whole new set up has to be conjured up, new broadcast contracts signed and none of this will happen overnight. There's also no guarantee that other PL Clubs will want to dance to the big Six tune if they set up a new domestic league. Perhaps there will be two leagues set up, making a messy situation worse and further dilution the value of broadcast rights. These Clubs are relying on no one taking any immediate action. They want everyone to explode with rage and have factore
  15. That was yesterday's word, we want today's!
