Ryder Cup 2018
« on: September 26, 2018, 05:26:34 PM »
Might as well give it a thread of it's own.

From a betting perspective it's hard to see how the teams are ranked almost even. USA 10/11 Europe 5/4. The Ryder Cup is great viewing but Europe is an entity I can't get too excited abput, I can't imagine getting into a heated debate in the pub over Europe..

Get the bingo cards ready.

It's complete and utter w**k. No doubt enjoyable but still, w**k.

f**k the begrudgers. I love it.
The 3rd day of the Medinah Ryder Cup was one of the most exciting and edge of the seat sporting events I've ever watched.
It's sport entertainment at it's best.
Can't wait for it to start.

Cant like it. Always found it as an excuse for non-major winners to cling to something, probably because the world's best don't care for it.

It's a load of dung and it's a complete manifestation of everything hateful about America (especially when it's played in the USA). Drunk yobs shouting, unsportsmanlike conduct, controversy and sometimes cheating.
Hence, I will be glued to all 3 days.

Exactly, for most top players itís a bit of a jolly. They can pretend they really care about it all they like but deep down golfers are selfish and the team ethos doesnít sit well with them. After winning last week woods will enjoy this weekend without having the pressure of trying to follow up on his win. The americans in particular donít really give a sh*t about the ryder cup.

Perhaps all individual sports people are selfish: Golfers, Tennis players, Darts players, Handball, Boxers. Of course its all about me.

Soccer, gaelic, hurling, rugby, of course its all about the team.

I would echo the sentiments that it a pile of overblown nonsense.

But thereís something about its mix of history, entertainment, prestige and competitiveness, that all the money, marketing genius and strategic nous in the modern world could not hope to produce a tournament to compete with it, or replicate its success. Whether we like it or not, it has a magical aura which sucks people in.

And it sucks me in every time.
