ADMCSport Offer

Got an email from Abu Dhabi Sport channel telling me that they had an “offer” for existing members for their online subscription, I enjoyed their online service at first last year but as it became more popular the more important games became almost impossible to watch and video just keeps buffering and disconnecting.

But hey 10KD for a whole season? not a bad backup plan. So I follow the link, like their Facebook page (I hate it when companies do that) and follow the newly provided link.

The price is almost double ($65 instead of $35). I am “almost” sure that this is just a mistake. but the offer ends tomorrow and the link is broken. Or  are they just hoping that after going through that you would just say “the hell with it” and just subscribe?

Disciplined For Being Disrespectful Towards The Opposing Team

19 Jul 2011  No Comments

Last Sunday, a football game between the UAE and Lebanon was taking place. The headlines that came after the match weren’t about the 7-2 UAE victory, but the backheeled penalty that was scored by Theyab Awana.

The player “Theyab” came on as a substitute just 10 minutes before the penalty and was immediately taken off after the penalty kick. He was also shown a yellow card by the referee after he scored.

I didn’t see the game I just saw the video of the penalty. The first thing I thought that it was so disrespectful to the other team an this childish behavior shouldn’t be allowed to go unpunished.

Mr. Esmaeel Rashid, the UAE team manager was quoted saying:

We cannot accept anyone in our team who does not respect the opponent and does not respect the people who are working, or the supporters.

There are many forms of punishment. We could send him away from the team. We could make him pay a fine.

This is a cool Budweiser ad where they try to invent a new sport by merging football and pool. Getting grown men to stand on an over-sized pool table and kicking regular-sized footballs is just a silly way to get americans more into soccer FOOTBALL.
