Suggested improvement to World Cup rules
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shell_Carib...from I understand offside, honest, Wed 23rd Jun, 5:00pm
In the 1994 carribean cup Barbados were playing Grenada. Barbados had to win by 2 goals to go through otherwise Grenada would go through. Quirky rules (matches must have an outright winner; sudden death goals counted double) meant that in the final mintues Barbados, realising that they wouldn't score to bring the result to 3-1 instead deliberately scored an own goal to force extra time and sudden death. Grenada, realising what was happening then tried to score an own goal to get the margin back to a one goal win for Barbados. So for the last five minutes of the match, each team was defending their opposition's goal, trying to prevent own goals being scored. Barbados suceeded in forcing extra time and won 4-2 during sudden death. That's even more amusing than watching people in the bar watch England play.

CUBC to enter the eights head
http://www.theboatrace.org/articl...from Simon, Wed 21st Mar, 9:24pm
One rowing headline away from the Cam this week is CUBC's decision to enter the eights head which this year is the weekend before the Boat Race.
An interesting approach to tapering, but maybe JPD can comment on whether in previous years (CUBC have held their penultimate week camp in Nottingham for the past 15 years) the crews have spent the weekend before doing a 5k on the Trent.
My guess is that this may have been linked to the cutting of funding to triallists who refused to join the GB squad for winter training in Reading. Maybe this is an attempt to point out to GB Rowing that they're just as good as Leander.
Another thought is that last year's wash up suggested they couldn't cope with either the Tideway itself or the pressure of a busy race day. (3 comments...)
