Northampton is a far more viable away fixture for me than Exeter.
|I've seen surprisingly little attention on the shooting of Rayshard Brooks |
at 10:42 15 Jun 2020
I've seen a couple of videos & it starts as a routine DUI check. However, when the officers tried to arrest Mr Brooks, he cut up rough & grabbed one of the officer's tasers after a struggle. He tried to use it on the officer & the last footage was of Brooks running away. Next, a couple of shots and Brooks was dead. A routine arrest escalates into a senseless killing of a man who appeared to offer no threat to the officer's life.
Then, the really scary bit. This is the 48th officer-involved shooting the Georgia Bureau of Investigation has investigated this year, according to ABC News. Of those cases, 15 were fatal. So, we're half way through a year & it seems that 100 Georgia state citizens will be shot by police & 30 of them killed. Some of them may have been brandishing weapons, but it's a very scary number.
|So the Premier League negotiating wage cuts and/or deferrals isn't going well|
at 09:14 14 Apr 2020
While the Southampton players have agreed partial deferrals for the time being (hardly a big sacrifice) the PFA are still advising players against any form of wage cuts. As it looks unlikely that football in England will be starting in the foreseeable future, there is going to be big hole in clubs' income. If this goes on for months & the broadcasters are successful in clawing back TV rights money, clubs are going to run out of money. However, that may well suit some of the players , who will then be hoping to claim a lucrative free transfer. Problem will be that with a prolonged shut down, all the clubs will have far less money.
