376 heavily armed and trained cops in body armor, with APCs, are scared to death of ONE 18-year old with an AR-15

But the general public, with none of those advantages, should not be concerned that 18-year olds can buy AR-15s

He will wish he was suspended after the beating they will receive today

No love for the Argies, but I just don't think Croatia's luck can hold out. They need to be brave and play like we know they can.

If it means there is none, that was a completely true statement....Now, if someone had asked me on that day, are you having any kind of sexual relations with Ms. Lewinsky, that is, asked me a question in the present tense, I would have said no. And it would have been completely true."

Oga Skip, have you sacrificed enough consumable animals to propitiate the football gods and win them over to our AHA side? I have been sacrificing goats instead of shikens, but I fear this will not be enough. This one may require the sacrifice of a few cattle of estimable size. Remember, some of our misguided brothers are praying and sacrificing against us for Messi to win, so we have our work cut out for us.

Air is a good guy, but defies the evidence we've all given him regarding luck.

Of course I'll be rooting for Croatia. I concede we are the underdog. Mostly because we don't have even 1 striker, which is a serious liability. And explains why many shots are not on target...in spite of us out possessing even Brazil, putting in enough attacks and chances.

Messi will throw the kitchen sink in desperately trying to be the GOAT. Argentina does have a better attack. It might be the end of the road for my Croatia at this WC.

But, we will do our best. I grew up in a Croatian-American community playoff for a Croatian football club. Our fathers took us to practice and games. Across the USA and Canada too in summers to play in Croatian football tournaments too.

Many of our fathers have died, mine last year. I pray the Rosary and ask those fathers to enjoy, but to do what they can with the Gods of Football. But to win 1 World Cup for Croatia.

The next step is about to happen. I pray, hope, and cheer. For Hrvatska!!! Our players won't be alone on that field.

In other news Upamecano and Rabiot missed training with France today. Konate (Ohsee's boy) and Fofana are likely to start in their place tomorrow.

Rabiot seems to be a setback, a player I actually like.

How do you think this impacts France?

An Italian crew will be in charge of officiating: Daniele Orsato as ref, Ciro Carbone and Alessandro Giallatini as linesmen. Mohammed Abdulla of the UAE is the fourth official.

I haven't watched Fofana a lot, but I think he could be a downgrade even just from the point of meshing with the squad, all other things being equal, including ability. Rabiot has played all 5 games so far.

Konate is widely regarded as a better defender than Upamecano (at least by Ohsee :thumbs: ).

I think you guys will win this comfortably. Your forwards are finally due a standout performance. My only worry is the refs and their determination to award a PK to Argentina in every match.

4-4-2 vs the Grand Old Hadjuk of Split. Lviving dangerously. It’s all about the battle for middle earth. All else is irrelevant. Can two win it or is Alexis Gary Macallister inverting?

I also think about that.

Word on the street is that this Italian ref was picked because he in particular knows how to handle Argentina and any European squad...that he will quell any antics early.

I hope so.

No no no, Croatia are not the underdogs. This is a battle and I'd rather have the generals on my side, the croats are the generals. They know how to handle football exuberance, like good playground bullies, they will take the ball from you and give it back :lol: The argies have Messi (has been good this WC) and a reputation, but based on recent results, can't say Croatia are underdogs. They took Brazil to the back of the wood shed.
