    I have to agree with gh on this one. No matter how much one likes soccer (or basketball, baseball, American football, etc.) it ain't track. This Board is "Things Not T&F" and guess what--soccer is NOT t&f. The Current Events Board should be exclusively for T&F.

    Oh yes, with an exception of a few throwing qualifications, there is no overlap of TV/webcast coverage of the Euros and the Trials, so some of us can have a cake and eat it, too :-).
    And you wonder why so many old timers left....

    a heads-up: not only will Free Speech not be available on July 4, in keeping wth longstanding principle, the whole Things Not Track forum will be shut down for the duration of the Trials.

    If you can't handle that, you're hanging out at the wrong site.

    Since only the free speech forum is open on free speech day, why not just avoid it if that's not your cup of tea? The same rules still apply on the other forums.

    I find many like-minded people here - and I don't mean I agree with them - intelligent people who are informed, rational, and interested in the world around them . . . for the most part . . . ;-)

    I'm not 100% happy with the rules here, but I know what they are. And gh has always been very fair in enforcing the rules.
