    Barely a mention here in NZ.

    Soccer is very popular as a childrens sport (I think mothers think their little darling will be safer playing Soccer than Rugby) but few continue to play as adults.

    NZ TV is all about rugby, rugby league, golf, and netball and of course cricket.

    You get a bit of rowing or sailing occasionally, but otherwise not much is shown on mainstream tv.

    Which of these above mentioned sport is the most popular in New Zealand ? I suspect it is rugby. I've seen people play cricket here in the UK but it seems to be a complicated game. Back home in Belarus & in Russia no one knows what cricket is.

    Rugby is generally accepted as NZs fav sport to watch on TV, and our national team is one of the best in the world... I don't think that is a coincidence BTW.

    When we get success in other sports they often are on TV for a bit... it really goes in cycles.

    Soccer is very widely played by school age children but few continue to play as adults... most soccer coaches at a professional level have strong British accents normally...

    The only time we see a wider range of sports on TV is during the Olympics and even then they focus on the events we have competitors in.

    Of course having said that there are events we have success in that are not televised anyway.

    There is a hard core that love cricket here and at times we do have a very good team that plays well, but often vastly overshadowed by Rugby... and netball.

    Sadly things are changing... I notice that the commentators are using US terminology... before we had pool play where a groups of teams would play each other to see who goes through to the next round... all of a sudden they now call it conference play, which my brother tells me is grid iron talk... we are being assimilated...

    No.

    Soccer is a term used by Rugby supporters to describe the game played with a round ball.

    Football is another name for Rugby or Rugby league.

    Just like here Hockey means field hockey, so if you are talking about ice hockey or underwater hockey you need to specify ice or underwater...

    If you say hockey it is assumed you mean field hockey... if you are talking about football you are talking about rugby.

    That was somewhat unexpected. Golden day for Team Russia at the world swimming championships in Budapest. 3x gold and 1 silver medal over the 4x200 men's relay. Efimova and Chupkov at their 200m breaststroke and Rylov over 200m backstroke. Well done boys and girls...you literally wiped the floor today with the indispensable nation.

    Time for WADA to find another Russian turncoat they can pay a few million to "confirm" doping by Russian athletes. Who needs physical
    evidence when some verbal diarrhea will do. The new normal in the west.

    Russia wins 2017 European Volleyball Championship in Poland russia



    MOSCOW, September 4. /TASS/. Russian men’s volleyball team won the 2017 European Volleyball Championship, which was held in Poland between August 24 and September 3.

    In the final match on Sunday in Poland’s Krakow, the Russian squad, led by Head Coach Sergey Shlyapnikov, defeated team Germany 3-2.

    Speaking after the victory, which the Russian team snatched from Germany on the tiebreak, Shlyapnikov said that it was "a tough match" for his team.
    "It was a tough final match, but it is a final of a European Championship so it cannot be an easy game," the Confederation of European Football (CEV) quoted Shlyapnikov as saying.

    "We started the match very well; however, Germany soon improved their game," he said. "I was aware that anything could happen here, because we were fighting for the gold medal."

    "So even when Germany led 5-2 in the tiebreak, I still believed in our victory and I said it to my players as well," the Russian head coach added.

    Russian team’s 29-year-old Maxim Mikhailov was named the Most Valuable Player (MVP) of the 2017 European Volleyball Championship.

    "It is an amazing result, especially since we had not won a gold medal for quite some time, so it gives even more value to it," the CEV website quoted Mikhailov as saying after the match. "This victory will give us even more confidence."

    The Russian team did not lose a single set until Sunday in all matches it played at the 2017 European Volleyball Championship.

    IWF suspends Russia for one year - source

    Russia will have to skip the IWF World Championships scheduled for November 28 - December 5 in Anaheim, US

    MOSCOW, September 30. /TASS/. The Executive Board of the International Weightlifting Federation (IWF) has upheld the decision to suspend Russia from international events for 12 months, the IWF press service said on Saturday.

    Earlier in the day, the IWF Executive Board convened a meeting in Bucharest to focus on anti-doping. At the meeting, it was unanimously decided that Member Federations found involved in three or more Anti-Doping Rules Violations "in the combined re-analysis process of the 2008 and 2012 Olympic Games shall be suspended for one year," the IWF said.

    Apart from Russia, the IWF suspended Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, China, Moldova, Kazakhstan, Turkey and Ukraine.

    Russia will have to skip the IWF World Championships scheduled for November 28 - December 5 in Anaheim, US.

    Beginning last year, Russian athletes were constantly under the gun due to numerous doping abuse accusations. The World Anti-Doping Agency’s (WADA) Independent Commission, chaired by Canadian sports law professor Richard McLaren, conducted an investigation into doping allegations in Russian sports and eventually came up in 2016 with two parts to the report, the first delivered in July and the second in early December.

    According to McLaren’s report, delivered in December 2016, more than 1,000 Russian athletes in about 30 sports could have been involved in an alleged manipulation scheme to conceal positive doping tests. International sports federations now check data on each athlete mentioned by the independent commission.

    Joke decision based on a joke report. BTW, this precious report could not be turned into actual legal cases against any of the smeared
    Russian athletes. The whole report is a stinking hatchet job based on the word of a single, crooked individual. McLaren does not have
    single shred of physical evidence of tampering. In fact, his baloney report claims that certain tamper proof sample bottles made by a
    western company were defeated by "the Russians" but offers no specifics as to how this was done. In other words, the whole claim is
    "proof by assertion".

    Nice to see what a circle jerk club the "west" is. All it takes is the mere accusation of wrong doing for actual decisions to be taken. As
    with the election meddling claim. I hope that eventually this behaviour comes back to bite these sick f*cks in the a**.

    This is epic. By removing Russia liberals just managed to turn Olympic medal into participation award. Ideology accomplished. lol1

    They did save me some time though, I got massive gaming backlog to clear so I will probably be working through Dishonored 2 or Halo Wars.

    Also, Altered Carbon drops in February on Netflix so more reason to say "fuck Olympics"

    It seems most athlets in Russia are not interested in performing under a neutral flag. And the no Russia no games is gaining some traction.

    Also, word is already spreading that they (russia/) will look at alternatives to replace IOC. I imagine many countries would be interested. Maybe expand universaid that already exists but much larger and a broader agreement on anti doping regarding the countries interested.

    Don't care about Olympic replacement, whole thing is now officially a bad joke, stunk to high heaven in Rio, now it's full blown bullshit. I'm done.

    As for doping I have no idea how they keep justifying not testing every single participant prior to games on site. Another thing that is obvious bullshit.

    There are smarter things to spend time on, now it's clear as day.

    A successful hybrid war operation. This is actually a real example of it, unlike most of the conspiracy theories in the Western MSM. Of course, tbf, this is a conspiracy theory as well, just very likely a real one, for the most part, i.e. the decision was largely political, Western influence in those organizations, Western, American lobbying, double standards because its Russia.

    But Winter Olympics are much smaller than the Summer Olympics, right? But how much smaller? Does anyone here have some numbers? Anyway, if I'm perfectly honest, wouldn't have watched it anyway, I don't care about winter sports.

    Seemingly one way Russia can counter is to indeed block the KHL players from participating. That means both the NHL and KHL won't be able to take part, which will make the whole hockey tournament a utter joke.

    I still think they wouldn't have been able to do this to the Soviet Union. Or China. Let alone the US and its puppets. Sad!

    Oh well, you win some and you lose some. Can you imagine how the Russophobes tried to take the World Cup away from Russia? Behind the scenes, that is. They obviously failed at that. And which is more important, being the host of the World Cup or participating in the Winter Olympics? Obviously WC, every day of the week.

    Literally only reason I even bothered with Sochi Olympics​ was because it as in Russia and I was curious. And I learned about Sochi because I stumbled on it while I was looking for news about Russian space program. 

    Only winter sport I give a crap about is skeleton but I don't need to wait Olympic for that because it is so obscure that they upload all official footage on YouTube for free. And also because of obscurity nobody can spoil results for you because no journalist gives a shit about it. It makes curling look like UEFA Champions League. Bad for athletes, great for me. Main prize for word skeleton champion is just 20.000€ for fuck sakes...

    KHL will definitely keep the players home, they said as much. Pause in competition was to allow players to participate in Olympics. No Olympics, no need to pause the league. Back to work, besides it pays better than Olympics anyway.

    Russia should just take award fund for medal winners, slice it up evenly among entire Olympic team and move on. It will be way more money than most of them would hope to make anyway. With exception of hockey players majority of them work for peanuts unless they win (which is never a certainty) and some not even then. May be a disappointment in the short run but financially it would be jackpot. Olympics come and go, few manage to make the podium, even fewer make any long term money off of it but they all need to pay the bills when they come home.

    And as Russia found out during Sochi, winter Olympics are way smaller than summer ones. And both are infinitely smaller than World Cup (another thing I don't quite care about but again, it's in Russia and I'm curious...)
