    Samoa where as dreadful as the pumas were against england. Maybe it was the rain but they could not string enough passes together to be any kind of a threat on offense

    We are a product of our experiences and when you have seen enough of the bad side of this country, optimism is overrated. Spend some more time around 70+ black people and you will learn.

    Some of us have yet to watch the game, so thanks.

    Farrell has worked wonders with Ireland, but I still don't like him.

    Always good to see Saffers lose though

    Their mythology is so crazy given how many games they have lost in the last couple of years

    Well they have been built as big game/knock game specialists and the All Blacks haven't been allegedly. The ABs have shaken the choker tag but Fozzie is doing his best to change it.

    D3 aren't monsters but the lineman are still 280-290 lbs and the RBs can put dudes on their asses. She may be tough but I'd still be concerned for her safety

    South Africa lost the game, as simple as that. They left too many points on the pitch. They can only blame themselves.

    It was fun to see that: it's how the game looked when I learned to play in college -- lineouts and the completelack of concern for concussions, especially. You don't see those old-school cleanouts anymore, that's for sure. That was my favorite move, and I would be pissed if someone got there before I did to knock the jackal on his ass.

    Rugby in the 80s was way brutal, and that's before the huge units of the 90s started turning up in the pro-era. Especially there were a lot of cheap shots!

    They don't have the talent in the backs to create tries compared to the strength of their pack. Ireland has struggle with that as well in the last 5 years or so

    I wouldn’t want to face Wales in the quarters, but that’s what we’re playing for right now.

    Yeah, they had codes. If you chose to play, you take your punishment “like a man”. You never show your opponents that they hurt you. And you don’t leave the field unless it’s on a stretcher. If you are somehow able to stand up, you stay in the game.

    She is getting a lot of her young fans to register to vote, so that is politics.

    Hopefully she doesn't get her heart broken again, but if she does, she may write a whole new album.
