I'd implement an ATP rule that Rafa should only wear his sporting attire( with its shirtless version ) and jeans. Both as tight as possible. That's it.

So... The country of Latvia is 93 years old today, happy birthday!

Check out these photos from the Light Festival that takes place every year for 4-5 days around November 18th. It's beautiful, we're going to look at the objects tonight

Thanks! Also, sometime in December this year we'll pass the point when this second republic (since 1990) will have lasted longer than the first republic between the two world wars. Sometimes I wonder if history will repeat itself and something horrible will happen here again.

Of course he isn't, Maria. NID, by the way.

Blatter apologises but no resignation
Quote:
Blatter was adamant however, that he would not resign over the comments.

"I cannot resign," he added. "Why should I?"
Take your head out of your own arse and maybe you'll understand why.

Quote:
Speaking about the reaction to his comments, Blatter added: "It hurts and I am still hurting because I couldn't envisage such a reaction."
Seriously, how far up himself is he?
Doesn't matter that he insults people.

Quote:
But despite calls for him to go, he insisted he would not be standing down from his post.

"When you are faced with a problem you have to face the problem. To leave would be totally unfair and not compatible with my fighting spirit, my character, my energy."
totally unfair??????

What's unfair is that you're dragging the entire football world and its credibility down with each stupid interview you give and with each corrupt decision you take or support.

The man makes my blood boil.


By the way:
Quote:
"When you have done something which was not totally correct, I can only say I am sorry for all those people affected by my declarations," he said.
That's not even a proper apology.

Re: The Unbearable Ennui of the Indoor Season. Rafachat Vol. 74

I looked up this Blatter controversy but I couldn't make any sense of it (keep in mind I don't follow football). Is everyone so outraged because he said there's no racism in football?

No, he said something like "what's the big deal, everything can be solved by a handshake"

Honestly I wasn't aware racism was such a big problem in football. From what I've seen, football is very diverse in this sense compared to, for example, hockey or even tennis.

The outrage against Blatter is nothing new, though.
It's an accumulation of buffoonery from him.

Blatter is a narcissistic and corrupt man.
