So a former classmate of mine just announced on Facebook that she is now not male or female, but both genders at once and that she should be referred to as "they" from now one.
I'm sorry. If you have a dick, you're male, if not, you're female. End of story....

| Soccer Board|| Do you like having 4 knockout rounds or would you like having a 2nd group stage? - benhamin5555 on 7/14/14 at 10:20 pm|
A while ago the WC consisted of a group stage followed by another group stage, with the winners of the 2nd group state progressing to the semi-finals. Some older people I know have said they prefer this format, and don't know why FIFA switched.
I personally like knockout stages because of the ext...

A buddy of mine who is a devout AS Roma fan told me he'd rather see Roma take the Scudetto (Serie A title) than win the Champions League if he could pick one or the other.
If I were asked the same question, I'd easily give the opposite response. The Champions League is the world's premier soccer...

So apparently Arjen Robben admitted to flopping yesterday, certainly not his first time. Yet he will probably walk away from it unpunished, sadly.
IMO flopping is a disgraceful act. At minimum, a player caught flopping during a game should receive a straight red on the spot. Especially if it's in...
