Ice Hockey World Championship 2016

Post by sigma » Sat May 07, 2016 12:36 pm

WHAT FOR? Why do it? I mean the live broadcast of the match Belarus - USA. Sport is a sport, why turn it into a political game? I know very well, what can the U.S. team!

Maybe Belarus will win. I don't know why everyone has to be so political about it either. It really spoils a game that's supposed to be for sport and entertainment. But admit it sigma, it feels really great to win any game. :wink:

Just it was so cloyingly, it was so obvious that the players of team USA play in the giveaway. I can understand the motive or strategic incentive in the game with the Canadian national team, but their game with Belarus, I can't explain it otherwise as political reasons.

In fact, I believe should good feel itself Kazakhstan's national team, which has scored this goal in the Swiss goal 8) http://rutube.ru/video/ec63c91c2ec81e34 ... /?ref=logo

Did the game happen already or are you speculating on the outcome?

Whatever it was, it will be very interesting to compare with the game Belarus - Canada.

So the U.S. won 6 to 3 yesterday. Why was this game any more political than most hockey or soccer games sigma? I think most teams want a win for their country.

I mean, they obviously could more. Though of course this is just my opinion.

Don't be an ass NS. Hockey can be far more fun to watch than an American football game and hockey takes more skill to play. Americans were certainly hot for the "Dream Team" back during the 1980 Olympics, so there is an interest in the game, when it suits us. :wink:

I'm going to piss off a lot of Europeans saying this, but I think hockey really beats the **** out of soccer for sure. Boring!

It kind of annoys me that ESPN practically ignored this.
