    Rugby thread (6 Nations, Heineken Cup etc)

    Its a tough decision what to do. God knows what will happen to serious amateur players who carry on regardless. I saw something about steroid use is rampant lower down, players wanting to "make it" pro. Dunno how accurate that it is but wouldnt surprise me.

    Sidney Crosby Ice Hockey wűnderkind missed almost 2 years due to "post concussive symptoms" similar to Holloway and other fighters. Turns out his vertabra was pinching a nerve in his neck/shoulder area causing his symptoms. A 5 second neck adjustment and he was back to his best. Hopefully its a similar problem.with Max and we dont end up with a TJ Grant scenario

    Covington is reportedly gonna be stripped of his interim belt and wont be fighting Woodley. Darren Till is fighting Woodley. What a fucking farce https://www.bloodyelbow.com/2018/7/19/17591024/ufc-mma-news-colby-covington-tyron-woodley-darren-till-fight

    Batwoman - joining CW's Arrowverse

    It had its moments i like Devoe and it was good to be non-speedster villainy. Katee Sackoff was good but something was missing for me compared to the earlier seasons. Is there a good website to cover/discuss these and similar shows? I used to go to Den Of geek or collider but the site are awful to use.

    I really liked S1 - 3 of Flash, 4 was guff though. Legends 1 was really good i loved 2 but 3 didnt do it for me as much. I got bored of Arrow about 3 or 4 and Supergirl didnt do anytho g for me at all.

    Wrists do play a part, iirc theres a ratio of wrist width-to-knuckle width, bigger is better. Accuracy also plays a part if you draw the laughter lines from your nose to your chin and bottom of the jaw is called the "golden triangle" for KOing people. But anatomy is the biggest factor and os why some folk have mega power some dont.

    Think of your muscles, ideally from feet to thighs your core and arms all being taut then springing forward. Like an elastic band The most energy is early on. Also you dont throw a punch to hit a persons face, you try to hit the wall behind them. Hopefully that is a sensible, possibley wrong, explanation.

    2018 FIFA World Cup

    Im listening to 606 from last night and some of the England fans are so negative its bonkers. Im all for constructive reality based criticism but saying Alli and Sterling are untalented, Lane didnt turn and shouldnt get the golden boot as he scored penalties. How Southgate is "tactically nieve(sp? my favourite arm-chair criticism line. Best of all, Shelvey and Wilshire should have gone and theyd have put England over-the-top to victory. Yeah fucking right

    It seemed like an x-guard sweep position but more to the side rather than below/back and against the cage which had a huge effect on it. I doubt anyone has trained or been in that position before but we saw it happen so who knows? He was rocked bigtime and did well to survive. And as you say i doubt he'll ever be short of sponsors.

    Some awful judging in the ufc, even by the low standard set. Some decent ko's and one very creative one.

    Some good action from Bellator 202 which is on Spike sky150 tonight.includes michael McDonald whom i always remember from a UFC Countdown where he said he hadnt banged his bird for 2 years due to some psychobabble reason or they transcended sex or somesuch thing. Some biggish names tonight with Cat Zingano v Marion Reneau, fellow psoriasis man Chad Mendes returning against Myles Jury. Sage Northcutt, Eddie Eineland and Darren The Damage Elkins. When i was a kid here was a notorious bully in Musselburgh called "Damage" its a bizarrely intimidating nom de guerre, more so than any bar "The axe murderer"
