Re: Olympics

Seems Ireland won a couple of medals, but they're not to be found anywhere on the web (at least without a "This video is not available in your country" fuck-you). Kind of frustrating that they would sell out the rights like that for the Olympics, idk. Cannot wait for Lasha to absolutely decimate the...

Re: Latin American Uprisings

I've long suspected Bolsonaro to be ... a corrupt turd On this we can all agree I think! The sooner such shit stains are eradicated from the face of the earth, the better. This too! I wonder is there a neoliberal leader out there who is not, demonstrably, a corrupt turd, but rather just someone who...

Re: Olympics

In Rugby Sevens it's roughly the same concept of the tackler having to release. You can see some examples here: Thanks; the video really helped. If I read it right, a defender can always strip the ball. That's standard American football technique too. The tackled ball carrier wants to keep his body...

Re: Olympics

I guess this is rugby union, rather than rugby league? The most common type of turnover in rugby league happens because of a rule whereby when a player of the opposing team gets tackled and goes to ground, they have to let go of the ball once on the ground within a couple of seconds. A player that ...

Re: Olympics

How do you force a turnover? The ball carrier can hand off to a teammate when they're tackled and on the ground. I guess this is rugby union, rather than rugby league?

Re: Trivia Contest 2021

A coffle of donkeys must be a more recent invention given it references slavery in the American South. There are others for them like drove or herd. Probably comes from Lipton's An Exultation of Larks as many of the more modern ones are. Yep, on that one I took a little bit of liberty as I needed a...

Re: Trivia Contest 2021

*Perforns wild football-style goal celebration* I knew watching this would come in handy one day. Great video! If there's one thing I learnt from making this version of the quiz, it's that there are some weird collective nouns out there! I installed a Flair extension, for the bragging rights. 🏆 I l...
