Re: Olympic Games 2012 London Thread (All other sports besides tennis)

watched 15 minutes of women handball and couldn't have handled it more. There are no words which could describe the agony which is going through the spectator of women's sport. You should be big masochist to be able to handle it

Stop bitching samo, it's still higher than WTA.

Spain 13-12 at HT.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

male coaches of women's sport have to have criminal dossiers and this job is a punishment which will remember them not to make the same mistake ever again

At least handballers don't demand equal prizemoney. I don't judge handball, volleyball or athletics on the standard of the men, makes things easier.

Has MTF always been this male chauvinist? Grow up lads.

You are witnessing its two most vocal advocates.

China-Japan volleyball is too good.

Pretty much. Our fiery Croatian friend is the one who hates all women's sport. Whereas there are some sports I can't stand no matter who plays it and don't think all women's sport is chick shit.

Re: Olympic Games 2012 London Thread (All other sports besides tennis)

i don't hate all women sport. Everyone without physical contact is watchable, women volleyball is probably more watchable than men's, women athletics is good, swimming, skiing...

Re: Olympic Games 2012 London Thread (All other sports besides tennis)

Women's volleyball is fine. Handball is a physical sport no matter who plays it. It's funny how bad it is in Spain now that their players are going to play in Serbia or other places, since the clubs are so broke.

Goran, well he hates WTA big time.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

Women's balance beam final lineup is too good.

First ever Olympics for the Croatian ladies, but they weren't expected to be in the medals unlike the men's.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".
