Sports Talk / World Cup 2018
« Last post by firezuki on 5 hours ago »
I was going to start a thread and then thought obviously no-one seemed interested. :embarrassed:


Don't follow the game myself but this is a big deal every four years.


Was talking to some fellow cabbies who do follow the game and suggested something.


The faking of injury and writhing around on the ground for half an hour is a blight on the game.


This should be THE showcase of the game.  Instead I just get pissed off watching it.


So I suggested that a yellow card should be given for the first infringement.


A red card for the second.  (Doesn't have to be the same player - just same team)


Penalty spot for the third.


The video assistant can be used every time one of them goes down as if shot to see if they're faking or not. 


Anyone else hate this and have a better suggestion?

Yes I remember when ; I think it was 3UZ pioneered this type of thing with the late great rider Roy Higgins casting his eye over the contestants in the mounting yard. Since then we have had  various' " personalities " giving us the benefit of their so called expertise. We have endured the likes of Bernie Cooper, Ron Dufficy and a host of other no names providing their insights. I think in hindsight that the only thing they shared with Higgins is that they through their legs over a racehorse. Basically it is all just "fill " the same that happens before any sporting contest/.

Did anyone used to subscribe to Mark Sheans old MYM package with Just Racing? Is he any good?

Dunno.

But I reckon he's the most knowledgeable of people I've ever heard vis-a-vis racehorses.

Yes but they do not jump from stalls.

I could be wrong JRB, but I think one of the reasons why they use barriers is because of the heavy grounds they get there and the bog down factor.

They're National Hunt races.

National Hunt doesn't use barriers.

Did you see the farrier attempting to reshoe James Watt before the Windsor Castle ?

Admittedly we are spoiled by the quality of our Australian racetrack farriers but this bloke was pathetic.  For a start he was in a panic - never a good idea around a racehorse.  Secondly he had the horse up against the wall off the stall leaving the horse with nowhere to go and then he put the horses hoof between his knees and turned at right angles to the horse ! 

I couldn't believe it.  In the old days of World Championship Wrestling we used to call that the Step Over Toe Hold.  Horses legs aren't designed to move much laterally and it was no wonder the horse objected.

After several attempts to shoe the near hind the farrier sent the horse to the start on three plates !

When I first looked at the Field my first thoughts was ...why is The Big Vin $5? He is a promising horse....but when I went into the race a little deeper Roman Typhoon jumped out, he has a couple of negatives, he is by Roman Emperor a Derby winner and Caulfield Cup Placegetter so the 1100 could be too short, Plus his manners leave a lot to be desired, there are a few promising horses in the race that would normally win a class 1 at Scone, however that being said I will be really surprised if he isn't the best horse in the race....and by a long way.......I am banking on his class to get him home, if he wins a good race down the track and we look back we will be wondering how he started such a great price in a Class 1 at Scone on a Monday???.............and if he is beaten I am sure a win isn't far off

Bumpers are indeed jumpers' flats, used largely for educational purposes. They are run on jumping cards, not flat racing programmes.

Yes but they do not jump from stalls.

I could be wrong JRB, but I think one of the reasons why they use barriers is because of the heavy grounds they get there and the bog down factor.
