The Cavani one was bollocks, but this one is definitely questionable.

The closest translation in context would be Piquet calling Hamilton "the little blacky" after referring to every other driver by name. The term in itself isn't necessarily offensive, but the context in which it was used almost certainly was.

I don't really think that's fair to say. They ran up English cricket scores against Russia and Samoa without conceding at all. Their undoing was Japan shocking Ireland, which put them at a four-point disadvantage in the first place.

I think this tournament has so far turned out even better than 2015, which I thought was the best in a long time. The crowds have definitely been getting their money's worth. Pools A and D in particular have been particularly heavy on action.

>Champions League Final: Harrowing accounts of post-match violence spark debate

>A week has gone by but the stadium "fiasco" remains a hot issue in France, with new and harrowing accounts about the breakdown in law and order when the match had come to an end.

>Among Liverpool fans whose translated testimony has been circulating widely on social media is UFC fighter Paddy Pimblett, who said he had "never been so scared in my life … as when I came out of that ground on Saturday night. At least when you are in a cage it is one against one," the mixed martial artist said.

>"There were groups of 30 men, running around in big packs. Some of them had weapons: machetes, knives, bars and bats. People were being pinned to the floor and having their watches taken. I saw people having their handbags taken off them, when [the thieves] would pull the bag from them and then slice the [strap] with a knife."

Why is it that whenever absolutely anything goes wrong at a sporting event it's pinned on English fans? It looks like the Olympics in Paris will be a laugh.

The problems before the match were a fairly straightforward last-minute logistical cockup. A partial strike on the RER meant that most of the Liverpool fans came to the stadium via Ligne D rather than Ligne B. The plan was to redirect most of these fans to the main approach on the Avenue du Stade de France, but this plan wasn't carried out by the municipal police. The overwhelming number of fans at the secondary approach on Avenue du Président Wilson created several severe bottlenecks well before the fans actually reached the stadium gates.

By the time the situation became clear, there was no viable plan to redirect the crowd to alternative gates and it was primarily a case of preventing a dangerous stampede or crush. If we're being charitable, the problems broadly stem from the last-minute change of venue, UEFA's failure to fully appraise the suitability of the Stade de France and the bureaucratic complexities of France's multi-layered policing system.

As regards the trouble after the match, the Stade de France is in Saint-Denis, which is bandit country. There's nowhere in Britain that even begins to compare with the lawlessness and mayhem of the banlieues défavorisées. The police don't enforce the law there, they just try to stop the shit from spilling out. Liverpool Football Club failed to communicate this to their fans, but I'm not sure they would have fully appreciated the gravity of the situation.

>"The stance we are taking is about protecting the equal opportunities that WTA players should have to compete as individuals," added the WTA, the women's governing body.

>Djokovic, a six-time champion at the All England Club, will be unable to retain the 2,000 ranking points he earned by winning the title last year and is only 680 ahead of nearest rival Daniil Medvedev.

I think Muay Thai is used quite a bit in MMA, even though it's not always given as much credit as other disciplines. I think this is partially down to commentator biases in the UFC, i.e. whenever MMA fighters are on the ground, everyone talks about BJJ, and stand-up is referred to as boxing, but whenever a kick is thrown it's just called a "kick".

In reality I see plenty of fighters using the teep to keep distance. Kattar won his last fight with a spectacular elbow that wouldn't be out of place in a Muay Thai fight. I'm pretty sure the whole idea of landing kicks with the shin rather than the foot is also a Muay Thai thing, right?

Anyway, I should really watch more Asian martial arts. Rizin is meant to be pretty good for this, isn't it?

The reason it's not used as much in MMA, although it is the base for a lot of high level fighters striking, is because boxing and wrestling/judo/BJJ have been proven over the years to be the best base for the sport so people focus on those disciplines if they want to be an MMA fighter.

Sambo, which is a mix between wrestling and judo, resulted in a 29-0 champion in Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Kickboxing is just as good a base for striking and has better exposure in the West, where most MMA fighters train. It's not that Muay Thai is bad it's just that there are things just as good that are easier to get access to for athletes looking to compete. To learn Muay Thai at a high level, you need to move to Thailand and most are simply unwilling to do that.

There are tons of Muay Thai gyms in the UK, but most of them are awful. There were like four or five in Stoke alone, and a bunch in surrounding towns.

So there's two major problems with most UK Muay Thai gyms. One is that most are run by people who have learned and trained kickboxing not actual muay thai. If you watch a proper Thai match you'll see how different it is to what most people here learn and train. The other is that training real muay thai is just insanely horrible. With boxing/kickboxing you can just put on some 16oz gloves and big old padded shin pads and most likely everyone's going home from training with nothing more than a split lip or a bit of a headache. Muay thai, on the other hand, has all kinds of nasty knee and elbow work from the clinch and no one wants to go to work the next day with their nose plastered all over their face from an elbow they never saw coming.

Also muay thai is used a lot in MMA. Kicks below the waist are banned in traditional kickingboxing, and Anderson Silva destroyed Rich Franklin with the thai plum clinch. Twice.

I'm not sure why they've done this now instead of waiting until after the World Cup next year and I don't know why they've increased his salary by c. £3million. It's not like he's in demand from other sides, then again Man Utd paid Ole £7.5million a year when he'd otherwise have been on a fraction of that at Molde.
