Oh hell yeaah! :thumbsup: The world’s all-time greatest dynasty in any sport at any level continues, as my alma mater Carleton Ravens win the McGee Trophy - for Canadian University men’s basketball championship - for the 15th time in the last 18 years!!

Not sure how many here will care, but the XFL has thrown in the towel, laying off all employees and suspending all operations with no plans for a season in 2021.

https://www.espn.com/xfl/story/_/id/290 ... eturn-2021

Regardless of the league's premature end due to the pandemic, whodathunk that the new XFL would actually be even more of a failure than the original XFL?

That’s sad. The XFL had some cool innovations, and the quality of play seemed to be picking up week to week.

Colby Cave of the Edmonton Oilers passed away this morning. He had been in the hospital all week due to a brain bleed. Really sad stuff. He was only 25.

As far as the XFL is concerned, I can't really justify calling it a failure. It was simply the most poorly timed inaugural season of all time.

Well, I reckon there's a pretty good chance it'll be about gory tits.

I had been following his progress since he was placed in an MIC, and now seeing this...absolutely terrible news. That kid showed a lot of promise and seemed to be a joy amongst his teammates. I hope his family and friends can find solace.

German handball leagues were cancelled. Men's handball league was set as finished and the current leaders of the league table were named champions. Women's handball league was set as annulled and the current leaders of the league table have won nothing. In other news the head of the German handball association will be sleeping on the couch the next few years.

I guess Jon Gruden and Mike Mayock are strong believers in "We're taking our guy, and we don't give a fuck where others have him rated." Not sure I'm a fan.

What do the American football fans here think of Gronkowski shipping off to Tampa to play with Brady again? I personally have no real dog in the fight since I don't watch football, but as a native New Englander it's been pretty hilarious seeing diehard Patriots freaks go apeshit over this and Brady leaving.

Just to add to the gigantic shitshow that has been UFC 249, prelim fighter Jacare Souza and two of his cornermen tested positive for Covid and got pulled from the card. UFC is still gonna do the show, however.

Three Canadian sports leagues have sought financial assistance from the government: the upstarts Premier League (soccer) and Elite Basketball League; and even the long-established Canadian Football League. Of the three, the CFL is talking the most doom-n-gloom, while the CEBL is phrasing it like a short-term loan they expect to recover from, and the CPL have been pretty quiet about the request.
Still, when you add in the Stags, who are supposed to join the transatlantic Rugby League One, Ottawa could lose four sports teams - three of them before they ever take the field.

So I was watching auto racing tonight because, well, it's a sport (sort of anyway) and because it happened to be "what was on."

You had a guy leading the race with two laps to the finish when a caution comes out. Instead of cruising to an easy win, he goes to pit road for fresh tires, and basically takes himself out of the race and hands the victory to fucking Jerk Keslowski on a silver platter.

WHY Chase Elliot, WHY???
Stupid, stupid, stupid decision. He just cost himself the race! That would be like in baseball, intentionally walking in the winning run in the bottom of the 9th inning- that's how dumb that was.
