That seems so strange to me. Like couldn't the outcome of the game be influenced by how much time the referee actually decides to add or not add?

ETA: it makes sense to add like 5 minutes if there was 5 minutes of downtime for an injury but the way that article presents it seems like they can also just add time for no real reason


It's an estimate but it's not arbitrary.

What levels are you referring to? I've never played in or seen a soccer game where the clock is stopped except during half time.

NCAA and ohio high school are the 2 where I have seen it

weird.  to the best of my knowledge when I was in HS the clock was always running.  in the rec league I was just coaching it definitely was because I kept time on my own and often the half would end right on schedule.

The number of people with Notre Dame tattoos who never set foot on the campus is stupefying.

Same for Texas A&M.  There are people who call themselves Aggies, have never been to College Station, never been to one of the games.  Just watch on TV.  I'm embarrassed to admit I'm related to some of them.  Distantly, but still.

 

Mrs. Toon's brother has a thin blue line tattoo.  Was never a cop.  Was a dispatcher, then a crime scene tech(he took pictures). 

 

People are stupid.  Go figure.

WC is definitely on my radar. Love it but the whole Qatar part of this one has left a very bad taste for me and am not watching

pretty much this, I follow it loosely cuz I played for so long in my life.  having it in some backward ass country that doesn't even have beer and kills people for being gay?  pretty easy to argue that it should never return to the middle east until they grow the fuck up a bit and move out of the 14th century.

def some mixed feelings there.  I also blame FIFA in a big way for putting it on there.

If the right people were running fifa and/or the Olympics things like this could encourage progress. A missed opportunity I think.

I agree in theory, but I find it impossible (at this point in history) in most of those fundie countries.

Yeah, but Russia held it last time and all those things are true there with the exception of beer availability.

i dont believe russia actually executes people for being gay (i could be wrong - tho i know it is not widely accepted as a society).  while i'm far from being a 'fan' of russia, it is (as a society) far more progressive than most M.E. countries from what i can tell.

In some parts of Russia - Chechnya for example - there have indeed been kidnaps and executions. Also, last time I looked Qatar hasn't actually invaded anywhere recently, nor annexed any parts of its neighbors, and indeed they have been noticeably not blowing up adjacent countries power grids and water supplies ..... 

 

I'm pretty confident that if you can ignore Russian aggression to its neighbors then a lack of Budweiser and rainbow badges seems pretty much normal :)

I would not ignore russian invasion of another country, but they hadn't really gone to ukraine yet when the WC was there (2018).  today is a different story.

 

and while there may have been kidnapping/executions, I dont think that being gay is illegal by law.  and even here in the states (which is arguably the most progressive country in the world for LGBTQ rights) there are still hate crimes against those.  I'm not trying to excuse russia, but comparing russia to most of the ME is and apple/oranges comparison.

You will recall Russia annexed Crimea in 2014, as well as South Ossetia in Georgia in 2008. They were under widespread sanctions from 2014 not least for shooting down MH-17 - a civilian airliner with a Buk missile.

 

You are indeed correct that Russia and Qatar are apples and oranges - Russia should never have hosted in 2018 since it was under UN sanctions, and Qatar should be encouraged :)

Yeah, both Russia in 2018 and Qatar today are blatant examples of FIFA’s absolute corruption.

Having said that, USMNT has a must-win game today against Iran. USA! USA! USA!
