    Er no! It's a technical term for when a rower gets his/her oar blade dragged down too deep.

    Happens easily, I'd imagine, starting in a swift flowing tide as they do, but I've never seen it happen in the boat race before.

    I'd have liked to see the dogs heat map, looked to me he was playing primarily at right back.
    If a dog runs on to the pitch at the Hawthorns they usually get voted man of the match. On merit, not sentiment.
    One disappointing thing about Africa hosting the World Cup was that it represented a genuine opportunity for a lion to get on the pitch, it never happened thus depriving us of pure comedy gold.

    La Belle France has seen off les rosbifs with extreme accomplishment in the Davis Cup: we only won one set in three matches! Bit of an embarrassment to UK tennis. Just shows you how much we depend on Andy. Get well soon!

    Appalling behaviour.

    Bastia’s match against Lyon was abandoned at half-time after home supporters twice invaded the pitch to attack opposition players.

    After kick-off was delayed by 55 minutes, the game was stopped for good when more trouble erupted at the interval with the score 0-0. The Lyon goalkeeper, Anthony Lopes, was calmly walking off the field after the referee Amaury Delerue signalled the end of the first half when he was confronted by a man. Lopes pushed him back as clashes erupted between home fans and Lyon players.

    Television pictures had earlier shown the Lyon players running off the Bastiapitch and returning to their dressing-room to escape the fans. They initially refused to take to the pitch but were eventually persuaded to start before further incident caused the game to be abandoned. ...

    Sad news.

    At least seven people died after an electric cable fell on fans watching a Manchester United match on TV in Nigeria, police say.

    The high-tension cable fell on a crowded shack showing the Europa League quarter-final against Anderlecht in the southern city of Calabar.

    At least 30 people were taken to hospital by local ambulances and police who arrived quickly at the scene.

    English football has a large and passionate following in Nigeria.

    Sulley Muntari has had the one-match ban he received after protesting against racist abuse overturned.

    The Pescara midfielder left the field after being booked in Sunday's Serie A game at Cagliari for complaining of being abused.

    The Italian Football Federation said it had considered the "particular delicacy" of the case.

    "I hope this is a turning point in Italy and shows what it means to stand up for your rights," said Muntari, 32.

    "I feel that someone has finally listened to me. The last few days have been very hard for me. I have felt angry and isolated.

    "I was being treated like a criminal. How could I be punished when I was the victim of racism?

    "I hope my case can help so that other footballers do not suffer like me."

    Muntari was initially booked for dissent, then received a second yellow card for leaving the field.

    Wayne Rooney Loses £500,000 In Two Hour Gambling Spree

    He's reportedly on about 300 grand a week so it only amounts to slightly less than 2 weeks gross..

    I guess when you're on 15½ million a year plus sponsorship income & you've already bought everything you want, the odd half mill here & there isn't too painful.

    He could pay off someone's mortgage, like whatsisface did (allegedly). Then he might feel good about himself, instead of feeling a complete loser.

    And so the football season draws to its end...
    Premier League: Race for the Champions League and the Golden Boot

    Manchester City, Liverpool and Arsenal will compete for England's final two Champions League places as the Premier League season finishes on Sunday.

    City can clinch third spot, and a place in the group stage, by winning at Watford, while Liverpool will secure at least fourth by beating Middlesbrough.
    But Arsenal can sneak into the top four if one of their rivals slips up and they beat Everton at Emirates Stadium.

    All 20 teams are in action, with every match kicking off at 15:00 BST.

    etc...

    LAWRO'S FINAL DAY PREDICTIONS
    All kick-offs 15:00 BST

    SUNDAY
    Arsenal v Everton

    It appears Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is going to stay on for another year or two and, if that is the case, I am not sure why they have kept it such a big secret.

    So, it does not look like this will be Wenger's final game at the Emirates Stadium, but it could be Alexis Sanchez's - the future of the Gunners striker is still in doubt.

    Arsenal have got next week's FA Cup final to think about but I don't think that will affect the result, because they can still finish in the top four and they have to go for the win in case Manchester City or Liverpool slip up.

    Everton will finish seventh whatever happens and they will make a game of it, but the Gunners are on a good run and I think they will come out on top.

    However, even if Arsenal do win, I think it will be too little, too late for Wenger's side as far as making the Champions League places goes - I think Liverpool and City will both win.

    Lawro's prediction: 2-0

    Jeremy Corbyn is using FA Cup Final day to launch plans to offer football fans a "flexible football ticket" to help more people attend matches.

    The proposal would mean fans aren't left with unusable tickets after matches are moved or rescheduled.

    The Labour leader - who will be at Wembley later to support Arsenal - is also pledging more money for grassroots football if Labour wins power.

    The Conservatives have called Labour's proposals "nonsensical".

    Mr Corbyn is pledging to make football a "game for the many, not the few" before he travels to watch his team play Chelsea at Wembley.

    The Labour manifesto commits to ensuring the Premier League upholds a promise to put 5% of its television rights income into grassroots football.

    Depending which teams you follow, it was a mixed bag of results today. These are just the headlines, from the Telegraph and the BBC.

    Sport Rugby Union
    Exeter Chiefs crowned champions of England after extra time in the most nailbiting match in Premiership history.

    Formula 1
    Monaco GP qualifying: Kimi Raikkonen takes pole as Lewis Hamilton set to start in 13th

    Arsenal won the FA Cup for a record 13th time in a thrilling final by beating 10-man Chelsea, who were denied a league and cup double.
    The result means Arsene Wenger is the most successful manager in the competition's history with seven victories.

    The Cup final was a really good game, full of action. One of those that justify talk of the Beautiful Game!

    FFS, RM, must you drag Saint Jeremy into every blasted thread on this MB! :mad:

    Your constant banging on about him and his disciples is probably counter-productive, as some of us prefer to read the news for ourselves and draw our own conclusions.
