    Sounds like another one of those injuries that could have been avoided if his training routine wasn't so demanding.>

    LOL!!!

    Yep, that lack of the B annoys me. Same as NAH having no bikepolo in the name. It's stupid.

    But then again, if that's the worst problem in bike polo, then it's going pretty well.

    Although a nice American came to visit yesterday and said he might be up for reffing (he's > got his accreditation and everything!)... International reffing! :)>

    I love the way that the pundits now accept that if American football comes to England more, > football will have to move from Wembley, the national stadium.

    Surely it would be easier for American football to find its own stadium in Milton Keynes or somewhere.>

    Well, I think it's also the case that the FA want to move the games around the country. It was a success during the non-Wembley years, and other countries, such as Germany, do it out of choice.

    And the NFL causing it is really a bit of a red herring, caused by people not understanding how the NFL works.

    The NFL season is 17 weeks long, of which there are 8 home games, plus between 0 and 3 home playoff games. The majority of that occurs during the international off season, the only clash is for the October and November international windows.

    NA sports are very good at scheduling to allow for stadium sharing, I'm pretty sure they can manage to block out 2 weekends of a 17 week season.

    But saying that, for me Hamilton is the true talent, he has that extra bit only a few drivers have had. Rosberg is another Button, Coulthard (yeah, I know he didn't win, but could have), Hill, Villeneuve, Mansell, Räikkönen. Good enough to win in the right car. But not a superstar.

    I don't really get the whole Hamilton won twice as many races thing. Yes, he did, and I think most people will agree he is the quicker driver.

    But that's not what the championship is. It's about the most points over the season, and sometimes it rewards slow and steady, rather than quick and unreliable. Sometimes being too quick can damage your car.

    If it was purely about wins, then people would drive differently, as 2nd would be meaningless, except for tie breaking.
