    Modern Male Fashion and its consequences

    I love this coat... if I bought thr hugest size available would it fit me... and if it did would I look as though I had tits? Probably safer just to accept that women get better clothes* and admire from afar. Although there is no reason why you couldn't have a men's jacket with that sane heavy...

    Films that it makes sense to watch at the same time* as another film

    Haven;t seen either of these but the fact that they are both clearly Christie pastiches makes them a rather obvious pairing I'd say (as mentioned in the other thread) vs

    Film - breaking news, gossip, slander, lies etc

    The other day we randomly started watching a film called See How They Run... we had no idea at all what it was gonna be, we picked it purely cos Liza likes Adrien Brody, but after about five minutes it seemed to be developing into a comedic pastiche of Agatha Christie - or if you like, a...

    Meanwhile, when you look from this angle it seems pretty clear VAR got it wrong Or as I saw it rather childishly put "For you Fritz ze VAR is over".

    Oh vicious.... pops up out of nowhere to twist the knife on that one. To be honest that one doesn't hurt so much cos England were shit and deserved to lose, though of course, the fact that they should have found themselves somehow level does raise the question of what might have been. No-one i...

    Nor do I. But have you never noticed that some of your compatriots seem to have an objection that seems almost axiomatic. Away goals as a way of deciding the result is a strange one as well really. I don't really think it selects the team that played better - though both teams knew the rules...

    What's VI football? Or is it just a fancy way of saying six-a-side?

    Also, I keep asking this, but @Leo, @linebaugh, @Clinamenic, @suspended or anyone, what is the American objection to draws? I've often seen Americans say "You have ties in football" as though it is self-evidently bad, and in fact @Clinamenic literally said that in this thread, but why, what is...

    I can't really justify it either. I suppose you could say it adds a bit of variety playing on different pitches and so on... but normally you avoid variety so that teams can play each other on - quite literally - a level playing field. I can only think it's a hang over from days of olde that has...

    And it lasts three or four hours, it's fucking crazy. I think really it's a different game to the one they advertise and pretend it to be. Not a worse one even, but a different one.... You see an advert for American Football and it's a load of clips with some guy throwing it the length of the...

    But - I guess it got a little lost in my enthusiastic splurging above - but, given your stance on timekeeping @Leo I'm interested to know what you think about the fact that the dimensions of a football pitch are not fixed, they merely have to lie within certain - pretty wide I'd say -...

    My considered opinion is that it was certainly pretty fucking close...from that angle you can't see any green between the ball and the line, but I feel that if the camera was lower so that it was looking along the line from the goal post towards the corner flag then you would maybe see a gap...

    I reckon this relates to what @shakahislop was saying above, we are all very suspicious about the relationship between US sports and TV - especially commercials - when the world Cup was in the US in 94 there were all kinds of rumours floating around about what the US money men wanted to do to...

    I can't help it mate... there is just something about it... for me there is just so much more satisfaction and pleasure without all this faffing around and teasing delay that seems to be intrinsic to almost every goal under VAR.
