729121 Travis : and getting hit by a puck would suck
729122 bob : i think most sport is corrupt
729123 Travis : everything has a tinge of corruption
729124 Travis : it's an imperfect world
729125 Travis : doesn't mean you can't appreciate the sport for the sport
729126 bob : i just cant get excited about a game where the outcome has already been decided
729127 Travis : now you're sounding conspiratorial
729128 bob : cricket, for example is controlled by the Indian bookmakers
729129 Travis : You mean to tell me that it was foreordained that Toronto would beat Golden State in basketball?
729131 Travis : Well cricket to me is a chirping insect out of my window
729132 bob : and basketball to me a total waste of time
729133 Travis : Golden State is full of stars, world champs but a series of injuries to key players allowed a much lower-rated team to win.....it was just bad luck, but good for Canada
729134 Travis : Hey, different strokes for different folks
729135 Travis : many things are a "waste of time"
729136 bob : you mean it is not decided by the team with the best hairdresser
729137 Travis : and yet we still indulge ourselves
729138 Travis : of course not, it's determined by the fanciest nail polisher
729139 bob : do you believe that these guys are really worth the money they get?
729140 Travis : you really are secluded
729141 bob : or is it a business
729142 Travis : obviously not, but yes it's a business and that's the going rate
729143 Travis : these days so much revenue comes through advertising and TV rights, something much less common in earlier times

729150 bob : parliamentary democracy
729151 Travis : Zara keeps talking about the US as not being a democracy....who ever said it was?
729152 Travis : it's a Constitutional Republic
729153 bob : zara is a confused person
729155 Travis : anger issues but claims the opposite
729156 bob : democracy only came to Spain less then 50 yrs ago
729158 bob : i think people understand democracy as being one person one vote
729159 Travis : he convieniently forgets about the Inquisition, Franco, the takeover of South America, genocide, plundering the natives of their gold, forced conversion to Catholicism, loss of culture, language, religion by the tip of a sword
729160 bob : every country has a skeleton or two in its closet
729161 Travis : Even the Greeks who started the idea of democracy didn't have one person, one vote
729162 Travis : You had to be a male land owner, the rest could go bang their head against a tree
729163 bob : New Zealand was the worlds first true democracy
729164 Travis : Most people think fondly of NZ
729165 Travis : Much easier to control with little territory and small population I'm sure
729166 bob : yes its like everyone living in only one city
729167 Travis : and a generally homogenous group, right?
729168 bob : used to be
729169 bob : not so much now
729170 Travis : Lots of tattoos on the island lol
729171 bob : tattoos are a internation thing
729173 Travis : I'm talking Maori stuff
729175 bob : 90% of Maori have no tattoos relating to MORIDOM
729177 bob : only in tourist ads
729179 Travis : So, I'm guessing that England beat your cricket team recently
729180 Travis : I knew a girl from S. Africa that tried to teach me about cricket to no avail
729181 bob : a lot of people would dispute that England BEAT New Zealand
729183 bob : scores were equal
729184 bob : i find American Footbal confusing
729185 Travis : so, who got the victory?
729186 bob : but i understand the basic premise
729187 Travis : why's that?
729188 bob : why is what?
729189 Travis : why do you find it confusing?
729190 Travis : once one knows the rules of a sport, it's no longer confusing
729191 bob : there are too many stoppages
729192 bob : and guys throwing yellow handkerchief on the ground
729193 Travis : well compared to rugby say...yeah
729194 Travis : that means there has been a violation of a rule, a penalty, nothing to pull your hair out over
729195 bob : thats why i prefer football.....a very simplegame
729196 Travis : then the refs say over the microphone what the penalty was, who did it, and what the consequences are....
729197 Travis : they have yellow cards instead of yellow handkerchiefs
729199 Travis : too many "fake" injuries to fool the refs, and when the game ends, it continues....
729200 bob : but the idea of the game is real simple
729201 Travis : + 7 minutes or whatever
729202 bob : yes thats true especially if Neymar is playing
729203 Travis : American football is not rocket science, either....you're just not used to it
729204 bob : one presumes the refs are experienced enough not to be fooled
729205 Travis : stick to soccer
729206 Travis : quite a presumption there
729207 bob : they are well paid
729208 Travis : and it gives you a moment to catch your breath
729209 bob : what does a tight end do?
729210 Travis : he plays defense
729211 Travis : there are several defensive positions
729212 Travis : tight end is one of them
729213 bob : what special skills must he have
729214 bob : size?
729215 Travis : sorry tight end is an offensive position
729216 Travis : they're usually tall, they can block or catch passes
729217 bob : see even you are confused
