football site

anonymous asked:

they got this info from a site called football leaks not from the victim herself, so there is serious legality issues with the documents themselves. these documents were got with the aide of HACKERS. these documents weren't gotten in any way legally

I’m aware that the documents weren’t freely published by Ronaldo’s lawyers. That’s the whole point of investigative journalism, you go and get the information where it’s hidden, you don’t patiently wait for it to be handed to you. 

The Football Leaks documents were examined and cross-checked for 7 months before being published, by about 70 journalists from 12 news outlets in different countries, and were found to be credible.

Will Smith's new movie "Concussion" terrifies the NFL. Here's the trailer.
It's based on a true story — which the NFL tried to cover up.
By Joseph Stromberg

The NFL’s concussion crisis is about to hit the big screen. Today, the football site MMQB debuted the trailer for a film titled simply Concussion, due out Christmas Day.

It stars Will Smith as Bennet Omalu, the real Pittsburgh forensic pathologist who first discovered a neurodegenerative disease called chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) in the brains of football players. CTE is the result of repeated brain trauma over time and causes depression, dementia, and other behavioral changes.

The Arsenal Project by Chris Read

All it takes is a few heat pressed letters to send a message that can make its way around the world. Head to North London on matchday and you’ll find Arsenal supporters filling the stadium with hilarious and heartfelt statements. Director Chris Read couldn’t resist documenting these select few with all kinds of custom kits.

As Chris tells Soccerbible, “A few years ago I treated myself to a season ticket and would go every week with a couple mates. I always had a point and shoot with me and just fancied doing some kind of personal project focusing on Arsenal in some way. I had of course seen customised shirts in the past and appreciated them, so once I was going regularly, I just started shooting them when I saw them. Now it’s turned into a minor obsession, going to games hours before, trawling pubs, reaching out to sites and magazines looking for some help, feeding the addiction essentially.”

He goes on to say, “From songs and chants, to flags and banners, football has always had a very ‘punk, DIY’ feeling which really appeals to me. I think creating some personality and individuality by customising quite a uniformed item of clothing shoes an extra level of love for your team and almost respect to your fellow fan.“

We’ve so much respect for this series. See more at Soccerbible and Chris Read’s site.

oh holy jesus fuck Ryan Mason is in hospital after the Chelsea-Hull match. beat Cahill to a header but came off worse in a horrible collision of heads (x) - was on the ground for 9 minutes and left the pitch on a stretcher with an oxygen mask and neck brace. makes me go cold. really hope he’s OK, bless him, sending all my good wishes

Pokemon Go Experience

So me and Chris just started to play Pokémon Go and we went to the grocery store at the same time, while grabbing some points of interest in the area.

At one point I was trying to get a haunter but it was inside a football site and there were people training in there already. A guy walked past us and went “are you trying to catch haunter?” we talked for a bit and we were surprised to hear he was the local gym leader in our area too.

It was so surreal and amazing at the same time, not having to feel like were the only grown ups that play this in our area lmao

In Brazil, we all watch the World Cup

By James Young

It is a Thursday night in a bar on Avenida Amazonas in downtown Belo Horizonte, the day after Atlético Mineiro have beaten Independiente Santa Fé in the Copa Libertadores. 

“What about that pass from Guilherme to set up Jô’s goal?” I say to Thiago.

“Pure class. And Berola’s bicycle kick at the end!” says Thiago. 

“Magic,” I say. 

We both turn to Rafael, who is watching the girls go by.

“You’re very quiet,” I say to Rafael. 

“I don’t like football,” he says. 

“Not at all?”

“Not at all. In fact, I hate it.”

“Can’t be much fun, hating football in Brazil.”

“It’s not. It’s all anyone ever talks about.”

I turn to Thiago and get back to talking about football.

But Rafael is not alone. Although Brazilian history and football are inextricably intertwined, the idea of Brazil as “o país do futebol" does not always stand up to serious scrutiny. The average crowd in Serie A last year was just under 15,000, lower than MLS and only slightly higher than (gulp) the Australian A-League. Although clubs such as Flamengo and Corinthians point to market research surveys and boast of their 25 million or more fans, only a tiny fraction of those “supporters” have the means or the motivation to commit to regularly attending their team’s games.
