Re: 2022 FIFA World Cup - Qatar

USA's inxeperience clearly showed today (though their skills and potential also did). How many times can you leave people unmarked to score? Pulisic missing that sitter at the start was a sign of things to come. Anyway, I will wait for the proverbial "next time" on this USA team with so many young t...

Re: 2022 FIFA World Cup - Qatar

^^^ I was reporting something I saw in a news article yesterday with a picture. I need to go find out what the details were. Can't remember which match it was in! So what exactly is the offside rule. No part of the body except the arm/hands can be ahead of the defenders? Is any part of the defender'...

Re: 2022 FIFA World Cup - Qatar

How about Korea!!!!! What a peach of a goal with just a couple of minutes left to advance!!!

USA, KOR, JPN, ARG, ESP, BRA, AUS were my preferred order of support. I am feeling great!!!!

Re: 2022 FIFA World Cup - Qatar

Yeah, the VAR technology has been excellent. Much better than the instant (human) review in American football which still makes some iffy decisions. The Japan ball was "not out" by only millimeters (less than a centimeter quite probably). But it was rather clear to me from the video and all pictures...

Re: Golf World Rankings of Indians

^^^ Good points, Arjun. Have to agree. Yes, TV time must be the reason (and not more spectators like I was guessing) for the Golf tournaments' having more money to offer. The corporate support also must be more as it is easier to sell to the corporate decision-makers. It is n the weekend and they ca...

^^ Actually the USA-NED match is in the final-16, so the Dutch will be eliminated (haha, I am predicting) but after the group stage :)

Re: ITF Junior Circuit 2022- India

I am glad that Aishwarya came through yesterday. I was worried that I might have jinxed her with some high praise :) What is the story on Tejasvi Dabas? Weird results. I mean she went gangbusters this January, winning the Chandigarh J3 etc, and then had a long year of no good results. Here she is, o...

Re: 2022 FIFA World Cup - Qatar

I am impressed by the US team. Extremely young team. Guys like Musah, Tyler Adams, Sargent, and McKenney are really talented. There were some samba skills that Musah was showing that shocked me. The guy is only 20. Weah, Sargent, McKinney are just 22. Adams is only 23. Pulisic is the "old guy" now. ...

Re: Lakshya Sen

Totally true, Omkara. I like what Saffron has done, going and finding some of these news items. We just get lazy and need posters like saffron to bring these things so we can discuss, argue and keep the forum going!

Re: Misc. news about Indian hockey

^^^ In other words, you didn't watch the match. Took one for the team. And we won :) .... Thanks for the sacrifice then.\

Jokes apart, this was really nice news today. I don't get to watch hockey here in the US, so have to rely on what all of you say.

Re: Indian Volleyball

^^^ Then we have problems. If the guys who lost are controlling VFI :( I think you are talking about them losing the case against the Prime Volleyball league though. I was talking about the earlier court case when FIVB banned us. I think one group won at the end of that, and got control of VFI. Mayb...

Re: Indian Volleyball

Yeah, but that is between the Federation and a private party doing the league that split away from the federation - and not the factional fight within VFI. This was again politicians showing their egos, disregarding how it affects the players, I guess. Some players like from Kerala went to court, fo...

Re: ITF Junior Circuit 2022- India

On the girls' side, I was really waiting to see how the 13 year old wildcard Maaya Rajeshwaran would do. She does seem to be a big talent. In fact I went "damn!" when I saw that she was drawn against qualifier Prisha Shinde, another 13 year old who seems to be talented. I was sad that these two were...
