  1. At an event of Elgato products, I see a major revision of arguably their biggest product the Elgato Stream Deck v2 has been announced today:


    Introducing Stream Deck MK.2. Interchangeable faceplates Removable USB-C cable Detachable stand Available now: http://e.lga.to/StreamDeckMK2


    Does anyone use one of these? I don’t stream but I’ve always liked the idea of one of these for general work stuff and people seem to like them - £140 is a lot of money for something I might not use.

    Chiellini was going to take him down no matter what. It was the final, he had the pace on him. He grabbed his shirt and pulled him down. His intent was to take him down by pulling his shirt. The fact it went around his neck was pure coincidencei it was a professional foul.. 



    Intent doesn’t matter for obvious reasons.

    Shall I bring out what the rule book actually says?



    A tackle or challenge that endangers the safety of an opponent or uses excessive force or brutality must be sanctioned as serious foul play.


    Violent conduct is when a player uses or attempts to use excessive force or brutality against an opponent when not challenging for the ball



    The idea that punishing a very specific unsafe action - grabbing a player by the collar to pull them back - would result in games ending with a dozen of sending offs is bizarre delusion.

    Yes, because it is the padding. 

    It’s really not.


    Simple test: Try pulling your shirt collar vs the rest of your shirt to see the clear difference and why it shouldn’t be treated the same.


    The more I think about it, the more strongly I feel about this. It’s far less about this individual game or decision and more about player safety - pulling people down by the collar is dangerous play and has no place in sport. I’m genuinely surprised anyone is willing to argue against this.

    I think this is unfair. It's quite possible to be incredibly happy with the tournament as a whole, the great stuff the England team have done (both on the pitch and outside of it) - but at the same time look to learn from defeat. They aren't mutually exclusive.


    Should everybody just be happy and leave it at that? The England staff won't, else they'd never learn from it and get any better - and clearly Southgate has improved as a manager since the World Cup, but that doesn't mean he's above criticism for what seem like fairly obvious failings tonight.

    OK, here’s my take: the England squad isn’t good enough and need better players to win major tournaments, and it’s frankly a miracle of good coaching, teamwork, luck and canny selection that they got so close.

    Yes, that wasn't a horse collar tackle. Unless Saka was wearing a load of padding? 

    Do you really think it’s the padding that makes it unsafe and not suddenly pulling someone down by the neck area? It’s not a typical shirt pull.

    Can we stop amplifying or pre-empting bigots?


    I don’t know or care who Darren Grimes is and I don’t see how it benefits anyone spreading nastiness all over the place.

    I love all the political pundits and other bandwagoneers on twitter who only watch football when England do well in a tournament not being able to wrap their heads around why a shirt pull isn't a red card. Beautiful. 

    Horse-collar tackles are incredibly unsafe and lead to major injuries. There’s a reason it’s banned in the NFL.

  7. Decent conference, better than the others


    As ever, I wish they did more original titles rather than the constant sequels/remakes.


    Given the cost of ownership, it's somewhat moot anyway, especially with no Nintendo Selects line of discounted titles, as there's no way I'm paying £30-45 for a game.
