Re: National Team-Keeper Robert Enke committed suicide

But don´t blame him for committing suicide, blame our society. It´s no wonder that there are more suicides, gun rampages, terrorists and so on. The system doesn´t give a f*** about people anymore. It´s all about the system running well, the individual is replaceable, the only thing the world needs us for is to work our arse off and pay taxes.

It´s a damn shame, especially here in Germany. A lot of people here are suffering from depressions, it´s not the right way things are going here.


Damn right blizzard and that's what makes me really sad.
The death of Robert Enke was in fact a pretty big thing over here in Germany and that's to critizise somehow.
I have to admit I'm absolutely not into football, but most Germans are, so they're maybe a little bit more emotionally involved in this. But, you know, it's not right IMO that the media was exploiting this tragic death. It was almost a 24/7 media coverage, then the wife giving a press conference and the coffin being shown in the Hanover stadium? I think this is just not right, the funeral and the ceremony should've been private, since the death of a beloved person is understandably a very private thing and should be a concern for family only. Yet, sadly this is just how it goes with famous people.

To be bowled out for 150 by the West Indies is shameful-they're rubbish. Could be a decent last day there, I think they need 50 to win with 1 wicket left.

51 to win with 1 wicket left. I'm sure Australia can make it. It's rather disappointing to see Australia epically fail in the second innings though. :( They aren't the dominant team of a few years ago.
What's the TV coverage in Britain like swca? In Australia it's on free-to-air TV (by government mandate) and Channel 9 (and their regional affiliates, like WIN) do an excellent job at stuffing as many ads into the coverage as they can fit in. Frustrating to say the least....

Cricket in Britain is on the Murdoch owned, cable channel Sky Sports which only a 1/4 of the nation have as it costs roughly 30 quid a month and most people won't pay for that.

Man City have sacked Mark Hughes-stupid decision, typical hypocrisy and stupidity by club boards who are clueless as to how to build successful football teams.
