Equally, I don't like to see males clashing heads in football matches or males, in the army, at front lines. Equally. Get it? And any morality deficit arises because we aren't very good at stopping wars from happening. As for the clashing of heads, many human endeavours carry some risk. The other day I saw an old lady's head clash with the floor as she fell down an escalator in M&S. Maybe we should make all women wear crash helmets when they go shopping. Better still, confine them to the house, where they can comfort themselves with fond memories of all that suckling they did.

The old lady was fine, by the way. She was comforted by a little gathering of women shopworkers who found a chair for her and brought her a cup of tea. Imagine: women in a workplace! And some of them looked young enough to be at home suckling!

But the top tier of Sumo wrestlers haven't been Japanese for a long time..
Mostly Mongolians now...

The only recent Japanese wrestler who made it to the top
lasted merely a few fights before injuries forced him to retire...

Thank God, PFR, that the Japanese have stuck with the sumo tradition and not been sucked into the hype of American tag-team wrestling.

They also have National Living Treasures in Japan to help keep their traditions alive.

Is Holland or The Netherlands going to wing the women's FIFA World Cup..?! ;-)

I'm a man and I've never had equal pay with anyone...

From resentful modern incel boys to reactionary old men,
their complaints about "discrimination against men"
is bogus and laughable...

Now if you were talking about class inequality and pay,
and not so fixated on gender,
that might be a more meaningful conversation...????



Sumo started this morning...
winner takes all..
literally - the winner is handed envelopes of cash after each bout...

The vast bulk of tournaments are the best out of 3 sets for both men and women. The grand slam tournaments are an exception rather than the rule. It came about through tradition and the idea years ago that women were somehow incapable of playing the five sets rather than the three which of course is a nonsense. If there was to be a coming together of that it wouldn't be women playing 5 sets though it would be men playing 3 - and there has been some pressure for that from the organisers and TV schedulers etc. As Al says longer games are not necessarily the best or a bigger attraction anyway. Especially in the earlier rounds where they may be more one sided. Is it really more exciting to watch a 6-2 6-1 6-2 match than it would be to watch a 6-2 6-1 match??? Plus we are lucky with the men's game at the moment in that in Federer, Nadal and Djokavic we have three all time greats playing at the same time and they are all good to watch. That isn't always the case where the men's game can sometimes simply be a big serving competition. This year argaubly the biggest attraction and biggest talking point is over a 15 year old lassie and not Nadal or Federer.

I'll tell you what I like about Sumo wrestling..

In the pro tournaments sport,
there are no weight, height, or age divisions...

A small mouse of a man can fight a colossal elephantine monster...
The winner can not be predicted...

I'd love to see that applied to other sports,
and it could pave the way for very entertaining mixed male/female matches...

Anyone for tennis, PFR?!

Very different - if women had to compete against men, zero would be able to make a living from it. So, in order to have equal prize money at Wimbledon, men are now discriminated against - having to play the game better for longer.

And, if someone counters with "but women look better on the court", surely that would be a sexist argument.

Football, cricket, it's 2019...

There's no good reason such divisive male & female teams can't be integrated at all amateur and pro levels...
Even if some rules might need to be modified..

The better women will gain opportunities,
the weaker men will drop off...

It's only the sports where huge brute male strength is of vital importance,
that may take longer, or never become viable, for women to be included in teams.

But where there's a will...???

hi

I have no argument about the result of the game. Us Women were the better side with some vey strong players; The were well drilled and their defence was better than some teams I saw in the Premier league
this year !!! Including Man United !!

It was an entertaining game and although Us were dominant, there were a few near shocks from a very hard working England side.

cheers

True story:

Not sure if he bothers now but, a few years ago, Jack Charlton started posting on Facebook saying, e.g., how much he liked fly fishing and disliked women's football.

Then one day I noticed he'd posted a picture of the World Cup winning team - saying something like who's the handsome tall chap in the middle.

I added, as above, that I was actually born the day he helped us win the World Cup and, despite being born with a club foot, managed to play A-grade juniors in Sydney, Australia.

He replied with "Alf Ramsey used to say I was born with 2 club feet!"
