Dan Carter signs huge 2015 deal with Racing Metro in France

Gareth Bale moved to Madrid for a transfer fee of 86.000.000 pounds (which is not totally his, off course). Apart from that he earns 300.000 pounds a week.

So in that context I believe Carter is worth every penny he gets paid.

Despite all of this: do everybody a favour, especially your kids themselves, and pleeaasse don't introduce themto soccer ;-)

Dan Carter signs huge 2015 deal with Racing Metro in France

That depends on how you look at it; a) he will put bums on seats, merchandise, etc. and b) if any soccer player is deemed to be worth 100 million euro's, DC must be worth at least double that figure.

You make it sound harsh but I do agree with you.

USA 7's player Perry Baker kicks pitch invader after thuggish tackle

Your categorization ultimately convinced me (and made me chuckle), although the retaliating violence should preferably be executed by hand or any part of the upper body. Using your feet makes it a bit soccerish.

Jean De Villiers injury might rule him out of Rugby World Cup 2015

I didn't even watch the clip, can't stand to watch this kind of footage. Nevertheless I do appreciate RD posting this because it gives our kind of people the opportunity to exchange experiences and wish JdV well.

So to me these kind of videos do serve a good purpose. Although I am never going to watch it myself and I do understand your point of view.

Bloodied Brad Barritt happy to put body on the line in win over Wallabies

Agree with you there. I also had a feeling that QC lost conciousness for a brief moment.

Great sportsmanship from 19 year old Portuguese 7's player vs Fiji

Don't start that kind of discussion here; this is a site for afficionados of the best game in the universe.

Besides: your point is moot. Every country in the world either has some deep, dark black pages in their history book (as you should know, judging by your screenname) or is writing them at this very moment. No reason at all not to be very proud of your home country when you are Portugese.

Test Rugby Results - November 22nd weekend

Interesting article, thanks. actually, I am not someone to believe anything that can be found on wikipedia. My point is that more than a 100 years ago the entire team seemed to play like backs. And they still do, maybe more so than ever. So in that respect nothing much changed over the last 11 decades, and especially not the inability of the rest of the world to consistently catch up with them.

Test Rugby Results - November 22nd weekend

Wikipedia: 'A representative New Zealand team, since referred to as the Originals, first toured the British Isles in 1905. The emergence of the name All Blacks occurred during this tour when, according to team member Billy Wallace, a London newspaper reported that the New Zealanders played as if they were "all backs".[14] Wallace claimed that because of a typographical error, subsequent references were to "All Blacks".'

So you might say that in more than a century, nothing has changed really. And the funny thing is: the rest of the world still just can't seem to catch up with them.
