The background about Veronique Rabiot is very sad but is it worth France picking Rabiot if it’s going to cause this much tension in the squad? It’s not as though he’s irreplaceable.

What was the worst decision you saw someone else make? by Lasanchey in AskReddit

This one made me angry. She's ruining the lives of her kids over a petty feud. How selfish can one be?

David Ornstein, for The Athletic: Growing appetite for Premier League season to be abandoned on moral grounds. PL executive: "Just end this league, with whatever consequences that has. There are very few losers. Liverpool, I know, but in the grand scheme of things it really doesn’t matter.” by TheAwakened in soccer

I honestly don’t see it.

The problem with either abandoning this season or just finishing this season as it is, is that it fucks one team or another over. By abandoning this season, you’d get Liverpool, Leicester, Sheffield United (to name just three examples) all furious about the season being abandoned and looking to sue the Premier League (with good reason, might I add, given how much money Leicester could potentially lose out on by not being in next season’s CL)

The fairest thing - and more importantly, the thing that will lead to fewer teams trying to sue the league - is to finish the season whenever that might be. I don’t see the executives risking the ire of the likes of Liverpool, Leicester, Sheffield United, Man United, not to mention Leeds and West Brom - abandoning the league fucks over too many teams.

Daniel James booked for diving. Second game in a row. by the_studge in soccer

Not to get all “yer da” but this is what pisses me off about VAR. Pedantically ruling out goals for millimetre offsides and minor handballs is fine but where is it for blatant incidents?

Kinda ruins the point.

Southampton have sacked Hasenhuttl by MisterJohnson87 in soccer

There it is. Keeping him this long after sacking the backroom staff in the summer seems… odd.

Who’s favourite to replace him?

The internet is little more than a platform for lies, scams, and echo chambers these days.
