  1. RB Leipzig vs Manchester United

    No. Which is good for the away team.
  2. The MMA thread

    Yep. Luke Thomas is another one of those. They are just filling minutes on their Youtube clips for extra income. Fortunately, there are better alternatives out there: Connor Ruebusch from Heavy Hands, Jack Slack.
  3. German Football 20/21

    Kluivert Jr. really looks and plays like his dad, who in my opinion doesn't get enough credit for how great a player he was.
  4. German Football 20/21

    Leipzig are not an easy opponent. Positionally sound, fast on the counter, good on the ball.
  5. The vaccines | AZ/Pfizer/Moderna rollout underway - J&J/Novavax close

    With health service staff being vaccinated first it will be interesting to see what the vaccine acceptance rate in the industry is. These people know a thing or two about vaccines.
  6. Qanon

    This has been debunked and fact-checked.
  7. US Politics

    They should but don't. What we confuse for incompetence usually is fully intentional.
  8. Diego Maradona has died | 1960 – 2020

    Rest in peace. In my opinion the greatest to ever touch the ball.

    Tomorrow’s reality has not yet happened. That’s why I am playing through possible outcomes and the consequences connected to them. If you have already come to the conclusion that scenario 2 cannot happen, more power to you. I have not yet seen any of the evidence Powell and Co are claiming they...

    The underlying question is: Is a maximum of democracy desirable? If so, then a popular vote for the presidency is more democratic than an electoral college or congress choosing the president. Referendums on big issues would also be more democratic than handing full control to a government for 4...

    In that case, the SC will quickly dismiss the case. That's why people should simply relax and trust the judicial process to play out. It will confirm that US citizens are actually still living in a democracy with a functioning election process where every vote matters.
  12. Valeriy Lobanovskyi

    The Soviet Union played some otherworldly football under Lobanovskyi during the Mexico 1986 World Cup. One of the all time greats.

    5 Million total votes. 1% is 50k votes. With 99% reporting, a 120k lead is insurmountable. The math checked out based on the data that were available. These data were later corrected. Clairvoyance is a skill I don't possess.

    It is. 2 scenarios: 1. Trump loses. Democrats will come after him personally, possibly with a senate majority. Jail time in the cards. This is the more likely scenario with what we know right now. 2. Trump wins. That can only happen if the Dominion scandal is proven true in court. This would...

    This is turning into a high stakes poker game with the losers awaiting jail time and political annihilation for possibly decades to come. I just hope when this goes to the Supreme Court that a just verdict will be found, not simply a partisan one. The ball is in Trump's court. $hit or get off...
