They cite discrimination because a men's World Cup would not be held in a place where all the fields are artificial turf.
I'm sure they could overlay grass on the fields if they really wanted to.
They could just play the whole thing in Moncton and be done with it.
It's worth mentioning that Canadian courts have declined to intervene in international sports organizations' business before, too; in particular, the lawsuit brought by women's ski jumpers in an attempt to participate in the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver would seem to have much stronger gender-equity grounds, but it was shot down by the B.C. Supreme Court. In that case, justice Lauri Ann Fenlon found that women were discriminated against, but that the International Olympic Committee was "beyond the reach of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms" and that the Vancouver Organizing Committee was duty-bound to abide by IOC rulings.
That's a really nice finish from Donovan -- good strength to hold off the Bayern defender draped on his back. Oh to have had Donovan on the end of that chance that Wondo flubbed. Oh well.
I can't believe that Pep refused to shake hands, what a tosspot.
MLS All-Stars, better than the best of Bundesliga. At least, in a friendly.
Landon Donovan just announced that he will be retiring at the end of the MLS season.
Bartosz Bereszynski played in the final two minutes of the Polish champions' 2-0 victory at Murrayfield on Wednesday, a result that earned them a 6-1 win.
"I just want to see young American players play regularly week in, week out. If that's at Tottenham, great -- but if it's not, then it's not the right move. It's hard to develop if you don't play."
"The team has no coach. I played for Argentina. If Brazil called Dunga, why didn't Argentina call me?" he told Ole.
"Anyway, I'm happy in Dubai and I don't have to kneel before anyone."
Spurs with Pochettino as a manager seems an ideal spot. He won't have the pressure of being an immediate starter and Pochettino has a great reputation for nurturing defenders
And while I'm on that topic, is requesting (or demanding) a trade/transfer (or loan, if possible) any more or less binding than such a declaration in, say, the NFL?
Zlatan scored both PSG goal, but also missed a penalty earned by his own dive), while PSG's "world class" defense looked as if they weren't fully back from vacation. Reims cleared two shots off the line in injury time.
A pair of friends were there, and were highly entertained.
09.20 BST Atletico Madrid are hoping to lure Roberto Soldado away from White Hart Lane on loan, but Tottenham are reluctant to let the Spanish striker leave as they already have a lack of options in attack.
The 29-year-old signed for Spurs last summer for a then club-record fee of 26 million pounds but failed to establish himself in North London, losing his place in the starting lineup during the second half of the campaign.
New coach Mauricio Pochettino is hopeful that he can conjure the best form out of Soldado but The Daily Telegraph says Tottenham are prepared to listen to offers and could be tempted to sell.
More Spurs news, and potentially big news is that. The rumor is the stadium construction will start very soon and be scheduled for completion for the 2016/17 season. 61K seats and Spurs will play the 2015/16 season at Milton Keynes. Plenty of room for all the American Outlaws to come watch the American Gareth Bale...
