What's On Today
Morganway at The Blue Arrow Club
Today in Scottish History
On this day in 1796 poet, James MacPherson, died. He was the author of The Works of Ossian, Fingal and Temora, who gained international fame through his translations of early Gaelic poems. However, although they caused a sensation in Britain and Europe, where they were credited with influencing the European Romantic movement, he was also charged with composing the works himself. This accusation gave rise to the so-called "Ossian controversy". The true story behind the poems has never been resolved.
On February 17 1688 James Renwick, the last Covenanter martyr, was executed. He had been declared a rebel after renouncing his allegiance to Charles II in 1680 and declaring him a tyrant and usurper. He was ruthlessly pursued all over Scotland until finally he was caught and hanged.

The Board shall be responsible for the preservation and promotion of the Scottish Standard English language.
Section 10: Universities and the Scottish Languages
Universities have a statutory duty to provide teachers for education through the medium of the Official Language and the Working Language.
This only applies to universities who offer a qualification recognised by the General Teaching Council of Scotland.
Where this is not possible the university should, to Bòrd na Gàidhlig, outline plans to rectify the situation.
Section 11: Language Precedent
Corporate Logos of Public Bodies and Local Authorities should have the Official Language taking precedence over the Working Language.
This could involve rendering the two languages in different colours, or placing the Official Language above the Working Language in the logo, however,
Both languages should have the same font size and readability.
Services available from Public Bodies and Local Authorities in both the Official Language and the Working Language should be advertised equally, but the Working Language offered in the first instance outside of the Gàidhealtachd.
Within the Gàidhealtachd the Official Language should be offered in first instance but both the Official Language and the Working Language should be advertised equally.
The member of the public should be informed at the beginning of the service of its availability in the other language, if appropriate.
Recognised Regional Languages do not need to be given the same precedence as the Official Language and the Working Language.
They should, however, still appear in the corporate logo of Public Bodies and Local Authorities within their respective regions.
This does not need to be of an equal font size to the Official Language and the Working Language but should still be easily identifiable.
Where services are offered in a recognised regional language they should be advertised equally with the Official Language and the Working Language but do not need to be offered in the first instance.
Section 12: Final Provisions
This act shall come into at midnight following Royal Assent
This act may be cited as the Languages Act 2019.
This bill was submitted by mg9500, MSP for Lanarkshire.
This debate will end on the 17th of August at 10PM.

2019.08.08 09:06 comradepartypanda Celtic say they're 'surprised' by Rangers' claims about Green Brigade

https://www.thescottishsun.co.uk/sport/football/4574155/celtic-rangers-green-brigade-abuse/
CELTIC say they are ‘surprised’ by Rangers’ claims the Green Brigade aimed ‘misogynistic and sectarian abuse’ at Gers’ female stars.
The controversial ‘ultras’ were at Sunday’s Old Firm clash at East Kilbride’s K-Park.
Gers accused them of targeting their players, with an Ibrox official reportedly expressing concerns about the group’s behaviour to the referee at half-time.
The Celts fan group took a swipe at the Light Blues as they responded to the accusations tonight.
In a statement, the Scottish champions said: “We are surprised by these claims which have been made today.
“We have no knowledge of any incidents at all and nothing whatsoever has been raised with the club either at the time or since Sunday's match.”
A spokesman for Scottish Women's Football also added: "To date, we have received no official complaints or information from either club or the match official involved in this game.
“Therefore, we won’t make any further comment."
The match finished 3-1 to the Hoops and the sides will face off again at Rangers’ Hummel Training Centre in October.
The Green Brigade’s attendance came after they aimed TWO banner blasts during the Scottish champions’ Premiership opener against St Johnstone at Parkhead.

2019.06.17 17:57 felixorion Result of all off-season CFB foreign exhibition games

Similar to how DI basketball teams can go on foreign trips every 4 years, certain CFB teams will also go overseas and play exhibition games every year. Only non-scholarship teams are allowed to do so meaning only DIII and certain FCS teams. Not many do go, though, probably do to costs.
Regardless, the slate for Spring/Summer 2019 has been played, and these are the results:
Date CFB team Countries visited Hosting team W/L Score
March 9 Pennsylvania China China All-Stars W 85-0

11 June 1560, Mary of Guise, Regent of Scotland, died. Mary was the wife of King James V and the mother of Mary, Queen of Scots. Mary replaced Arran as regent during her daughter's infancy and arranged her betrothal to the French dauphin. Her main aim was the union of her native France and Scotland, under French leadership. This, coupled with her unswerving support for Cardinal Beaton's repressive policies toward Scottish Protestants, made her a hugely unpopular figure within the country.
On June 11 1939, Formula One champion, Jackie Stewart, was born in Dumbartonshire. The winner of 27 Grand Prix and World Champion three times, Stewart remains one of the greatest drivers in the history of the sport.
On this day in 1488 the Battle of Sauchieburn took place, where King James III and the Royalist army fought against his son and a collection of disgruntled nobles. James was wounded falling from his horse after fleeing the battle and was subsequently killed by one of the rebels who was pretending to be a priest.

Today in Scottish History
On this day in 1752 Colin Campbell, the Red Fox, was killed in the Appin Murder at Ballachulish. Colin Campbell, landowner and government official, also known as The Red Fox, left his estate at Glenure with a group of soldiers, riding north through Appin to collect taxes. It has been claimed that his mission included the eviction of members of the Jacobite Stewarts, to be replaced by members of the government-loyal Campbell Clan. At Ballachuilish, a cairn marks the spot where Campbell was shot dead with a musket. Though the hapless James Stewart was hanged as a scapegoat for the crime, the true identity of the murderer remained a mystery for 250 years. However, in 2001 a descendant of the Stewarts of Appin, 89-year-old Anda Penman, identified young Donald Stewart of Ballachulish as the real killer, having allegedly kept a secret that was passed on by word of mouth through generations of her family.
Today in 1754 golf was formalised at St Andrews with the foundation of the St Andrews Society of Golfers. Twenty-two "Noblemen and Gentlemen" contributed to a silver club to be played for annually over the Links of St Andrews. The first winner was Baillie William Landale, a St Andrews merchant, who became Captain for the year. The competition was initially open to all golfers, as had been that of the Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers in 1744, whose rules the St Andrews golfers used almost without change. Thus began the foremost club in both Scottish golf history and world golf in general.

Allocation of seats

7 (1) The first seat for a regional member is to be allocated to the registered political party or individual candidate with the highest regional figure.
  • (2) The second and each subsequent seat for a regional member is to be allocated to the registered political party or individual candidate with the highest regional figure, after any recalculation required by paragraph 8 has been carried out.
8 (1) If, in the application of paragraph 7, the highest regional figure is the figure of two or more parties or individual candidates, that paragraph applies to each of them.

  • (b) in the case of a party, recalculating the regional figure accordingly.
10 In this Part, "regional figure" means:
  • (a) in relation to a registered political party, the figure calculated as the total number of votes given for the party at the regional poll for the county government area divided by the number of candidates the party returned as district members for that area;
  • (b) in relation to an individual candidate, the total number or regional votes given for the candidate at the regional poll for the county government area.

Return of candidates

    • (b) the party's regional list is exhausted.
  • (2) Once a party's regional list is exhausted, the party is to be disregarded.

Part 4 (Return of governors)

Return of a candidate

13 The candidate who is returned as the governor for a county government area is the candidate who receives votes at the governor poll for that area exceeding the electoral quota.
14 (1) If more than one candidate so exceeds the electoral quota, the candidate who is returned is the candidate who received the highest number of votes at the governor poll for the county government area.
  • (2) If no candidate so exceeds the electoral quota, this paragraph and paragraph 14 are to apply as if there had been adjusted in accordance with paragraph 15:
  • - (a) the number of votes received by each candidate at the governor poll, and
    • (b) the electoral quota.
15 (1) The number of votes received by each candidate for governor of a county government area is adjusted in accordance with this paragraph by:
  • - (a) identifying, of the ballots received by the candidate who had received the lowest number of votes at the governor poll for the area, how many specified a further preference for candidate for governor,
    • (b) disregarding that candidate, and
    • (c) for each remaining candidate, increasing (or further increasing) the number of votes that candidate received by the number of ballots so identified on which that candidate is specified as the next available preference.
  • (2) The electoral quota is adjusted in accordance with this paragraph by recalculating the quota and, in doing so, disregarding the ballots received by the candidate disregarded under sub-paragraph (1)(b) which do not specify a further preference for candidate for governor.

Electoral quota

16 For the purposes of this Part, there is to be an electoral quota calculated by:
  • (a) dividing the total number of valid ballot papers for the governor poll for a county government area by two, and
  • (b) increasing the resultant value by one.

Schedule 2 (County government election rules)

Part 1 (General)

Returning officer

1 (1) The Scottish Ministers must for each county government area, in relation to each general election held under section 3, appoint a person to be the returning officer for that area.
  • (2) A returning officer may by writing under the officer's hand appoint one or more persons to discharge all or any of the officer's functions.

Polls at the general election

2 At each general election, a poll is to be held in each electoral district in a county government area at which each person entitled to vote as an elector may vote by marking on the ballot paper the voter's preference from among the candidates to be returned as the district member for that electoral district.
3 (1) At each general election, there is also to be held in a county government area:
  • - (a) a poll for the return of the regional members for the area (the "regional poll"), and
    • (b) a poll for the return of a governor for the area (the "governor poll").
  • (2) A person entitled to vote as an elector may give a vote:
    • (a) for the regional poll, for a registered political party which has submitted a regional list for that county government area or an individual candidate for the area;
    • (b) for the governor poll, by marking on the ballot paper:
    • (i) the voter's first preference from among the candidates to be governor, and
    • (ii) if there are three or more candidates and the voter wishes to express a further preference for one or more of those candidates, the voter's second and, if the voter wishes, subsequent preferences from among those candidates.
  • (3) The right to vote in a regional poll and a governor poll is in addition to the right to vote in a poll under paragraph 2 (a "district poll").

Return of candidates

4 The candidates who are to be returned at a general election are to be determined:
  • (a) for a district poll, under Part 2;
  • (b) for a regional poll, under Part 3;
  • (c) for a governor poll, under Part 4.

Part 2 (Return of district members)

5 The candidate who is returned as the district member for an electoral district is:
  • (a) the candidate who receives the highest number of votes in that district, or
  • (b) where two or more candidates receive the same number of votes, the candidate who the returning officer selects by lot.

Part 3 (Return of regional members)

Order of determination

6 The persons who are to be returned as district members for the county government area are to be determined before the persons who are to be returned as regional members for the area.

Allocation of seats

7 (1) The first seat for a regional member is to be allocated to the registered political party or individual candidate with the highest regional figure.
  • (2) The second and each subsequent seat for a regional member is to be allocated to the registered political party or individual candidate with the highest regional figure, after any recalculation required by paragraph 8 has been carried out.
8 (1) If, in the application of paragraph 7, the highest regional figure is the figure of two or more parties or individual candidates, that paragraph applies to each of them.
  • (2) If sub-paragraph (1) would result in more than the correct number of seats for the area being allocated, paragraph 7 is to apply as if the regional figure for each of those parties or candidates had been adjusted in accordance with paragraph 9.
  • (3) If sub-paragraph (2) would result in more than the correct number of seats for the area being allocated, the returning officer is to determine to which of the candidates the seat is to be allocated by lot.
9 The regional figure for a party or candidate is adjusted in accordance with this paragraph by:
  • (a) adding one vote to the total number of votes given for the party or candidate at the regional poll for the county government area, and
  • (b) in the case of a party, recalculating the regional figure accordingly.
10 In this Part, "regional figure" means:
  • (a) in relation to a registered political party, the figure calculated as the total number of votes given for the party at the regional poll for the county government area divided by the number of candidates the party returned as district members for that area;
  • (b) in relation to an individual candidate, the total number or regional votes given for the candidate at the regional poll for the county government area.

Return of candidates

11 Where a regional seat is allocated to an individual candidate, that candidate is returned as a regional member for the county government area.
12 (1) Where a regional seat is allocated to a registered political party, the candidates on the party's regional list are returned as regional members for the county government area in the order they appear on that list until:
  • - (a) the party's allocation of seats for regional members is exhausted, or
    • (b) the party's regional list is exhausted.
  • (2) Once a party's regional list is exhausted, the party is to be disregarded.

Part 4 (Return of governors)

Return of a candidate

13 The candidate who is returned as the governor for a county government area is the candidate who receives votes at the governor poll for that area exceeding the electoral quota.
14 (1) If more than one candidate so exceeds the electoral quota, the candidate who is returned is the candidate who received the highest number of votes at the governor poll for the county government area.
  • (2) If no candidate so exceeds the electoral quota, this paragraph and paragraph 14 are to apply as if there had been adjusted in accordance with paragraph 15:
  • - (a) the number of votes received by each candidate at the governor poll, and
    • (b) the electoral quota.
15 (1) The number of votes received by each candidate for governor of a county government area is adjusted in accordance with this paragraph by:
  • - (a) identifying, of the ballots received by the candidate who had received the lowest number of votes at the governor poll for the area, how many specified a further preference for candidate for governor,
    • (b) disregarding that candidate, and
    • (c) for each remaining candidate, increasing (or further increasing) the number of votes that candidate received by the number of ballots so identified on which that candidate is specified as the next available preference.
  • (2) The electoral quota is adjusted in accordance with this paragraph by recalculating the quota and, in doing so, disregarding the ballots received by the candidate disregarded under sub-paragraph (1)(b) which do not specify a further preference for candidate for governor.

Electoral quota

16 For the purposes of this Part, there is to be an electoral quota calculated by:
  • (a) dividing the total number of valid ballot papers for the governor poll for a county government area by two, and
  • (b) increasing the resultant value by one.

2018.04.15 21:13 mg9500 Assumption of Devolution Speaker Position

Ok then, unusual situation as i was the sitting First Minister of Scotland until my electionso i’ll quickly list some resignation honours
Model-Clerk, for services to the Civil Service
icecreamsandwhich104, for services to Scottish Culture and the Gaelic Language
XC-189-725-PU, for services to Trade Unions and Workers Rights
VendingMachineKing, for services to Scots Law
All inducted into the Order of the Thistle.
Now thats over,
First things first,
I, mg9500 do solemnly affirm that I shall execute my speakership with wisdom and good faith, and that I shall protect, preserve, and defend the greater good of the Reddit Model Devolved Assemblies. I hereby accept the charges of the constitution, and in so doing renounce my membership of all political parties and organisations within the Reddit Model House of Commons.
Also apologies for delaying this a couple of days, hotel WiFi in the Mezzogiorno isn’t the best.
Holyrood
I’ll be nominally siting as the MSP for East Kilbride (if anyone keeps a record of this things, hi nub), in case you’re wondering.
Anyone who is currently a Presiding Officer of Holyrood (or a Deputy), will be asked to reapply for the role, just DM me on reddit or discord by the weekend and we’ll have a little chat. Likewise, if you fancy a shot at the role drop me a message. The current team shall continue for the moment on an interim basis.
If we’re going ahead with Legislative Consent Motions, then I’ll be looking for a team of around 1 Presiding Officer and 2 Deputy Presiding Officers. It should be important to note that the Presiding Officer title should be considered honourific, similar to how the Chairman of Ways and Means is used.
An activity review should be expected in the near future since I think that was missed at the start of the month and further announcements as and when we have a full team.
Stormont
Again, if the Marquess of Halifax is compiling his database, he can add me as an MLA for Foyle.
Similar to Scotland, I’ll be seeking the Stormont Speakership team to reapply for their roles. Dropping me a message for a chat will be much appreciated, although maybe make it clear which sim you are applying for. People looking to transfer over to Northern Ireland or make their first moderation steps are welcome to apply as well. And of course, the current team shall continue for the moment on an interim basis.
Just like in Holyrood, if we’re going ahead with Legislative Consent Motions, then I’ll be looking for a team of around 1 Speaker and 2 Deputy Speakers, although that may be cut to 1 due to the Assembly’s smaller size. The position of Speaker in this case will be considered as the honourific senior position.
An activity review will be posted shortly (once I get myself on spreadsheets etc), since the executive malfunctioning means that one hasn’t been conducted since the election.
London
Well, the Mayor has resigned and normally that would mean that there would be a by election and as that wouldn’t be finished until May, we’ve came up with this solution.
We will mothball City Hall for the time being, although with the continued intention of giving it one more term with improvements in place once an appropriate time is reached. London will therefore be re-evaluated at a later date, but that doesn’t mean that the community should lie completely dormant in the meantime.
In the meantime work shall take place place to make London more engaging for AMs, with everyone interested invited to contact me to air ideas. I’ll also be looking to appoint a continuity Chairman for the Assembly, on the same procedures as Stormont and Holyrood.
As I’ve said more announcements will happen once I have a proper team around me but in the meantime don’t feel scared to drop me a message. Promise I won’t bite.

2017.07.03 19:48 mg9500 Glasgow Green's George Sq Rally

The leader of the Scottish Green Party participated in a Glasgow Green Party rally in front of the City Chambers in George Square on Monday afternoon as the final few hours of Holyrood election campaigning slip away. Billed as the second part of the Sunday morning rally in Edinburgh, albeit with a reduced number of speakers, the event drew crowds the size of which George Square hasn't seen since the last independence referendum.
The main part of the event was the speech by the party’s candidate for First Minister which is reproduced in its entirety below:
”Thank you Glasgow, a wonderful reception in my home city, which we can proudly call Scotland’s Green capital. I believe we are gathered here on the cusp of something quite historic, we can change Glasgow, change Scotland on Thursday.
That’s not there aren't obstacles in our way, obstacles to progressing to a fair and just society. The most outrageous of these is formed of three perfectly innocent letters, S, U and P. I've spoke enough since the manifestos were released about the Gay Tax so I'm not going to go back there, I'm going to talk about another issue this party, now rivaling Scientology in the stupidity rankings, an issue at the heart of this city. Sectarianism, specifically, sectarianism at football matches.
The Offensive Behaviour at Football Act isn't perfect, no one has ever said that it is and the Scottish Greens fully support its repeal, as long as a satisfactory replacement act is enacted for the issues dealt with in the act are incredibly important and serious, nowhere more so in Scotland than here in this city. The SUP don't believe that sectarianism in football is a real thing, that it's some kind of hoax, or at the very least that it doesn't do any harm to society. This is a best ignorant or naive, and at worse deliberately and dangerously putting lives at risk. Let’s remember who the SUP are friends with, revealed in a church in Bellshill on Friday, the religious extreme and the orange order, who in Glasgow Green two days ago likened Scottish Nationalism to the IRA. No, no, no. We will not allow this, keeping the SUP out of power will for some literally be a matter for life and death, and not just for humans.
Oh yes, friends, the SUP have fox hunting in their manifesto. Opposed so vigorously by the majority of the population of our nation, but launched back into the public agenda by a bunch of ragtag bigots who seem to enjoy watching living things bleed to death. We should be treasuring our natural environment, not watching it being ripped to threads in front of our eye. Voting Scottish Green will protect our lives, our environment, our country.
Of course you will say, it's a proportional system, no one will make a pact with them, the other parties are sane and responsible at least. I'll reply with a simple line, you underestimate the conservative party’s thirst and desperation for power. You see, whilst every other party has ruled out any deals, any pacts, any coalitions with the SUP the tories have refused to do so. This happened after the last Westminster election though, so perhaps it's no surprise. They will coalition with sectarian, homophobic bigots as long as they get a few concessions. This would destroy our liberal, progressive homeland and create chaos for Scotland.
Of course, the tories own governing capabilities have been called into question over the weekend. The candidate for the Lothian constituency, also the national Deputy Leader of the Tory Party, claims to be “Leading Scotland’s Fightback” in a new set of posters. He should probably be informed that the only thing we could be fighting back against is the coalition government his party leads! Secondly, in the Conservative manifesto, new grade boundaries for exams are proposed, fair enough, except that 80%+ is an A, 60-69% a B. This is somewhat ironic as on the page before the party is taking about leaving teaching to the teachers, I say leave examining to the exam board. It poses another big question though, if the tories can't even proofread a manifesto, how can we trust them running our nation, our public services?
Be under no illusions Glasgow, it will be me or a Tory in Bute House this time next week, representing Scotland on the world stage. A progressive alliance fighting to empower all of Scotland or a coalition of chaos of homophobic bigots and people who don't know how percentages work.
Doesn’t that sound awful scary? Why don't I tell you a bit about the great country we can build under my leadership to empower all of Scotland?
Let's start with healthcare, if it wasn't of a satisfactory nature then quite simply we wouldn't be alive here today. Having top quality healthcare professionals is essential for Scotland, or indeed any country. That's why we want all doctors to take national examinations every five years, to ensure all standards are the best, high quality care we can provide with up to date measures. In contrast the tories want to reduce checks on doctors, allowing more faulty medical practitioners to slip through the net. Who knows how many lives that would cost?
The local general hospital always has its role in your care, but I'm sure you'd much rather be spared a visit whenever possible, when it's not strictly necessary, when better quality care can be offered in the community. Not only are we committing to a social care review, whilst guaranteeing that it remains free at the point of use (a pledge which, by the way, the tories haven't made), but we will commit to offering everyone an annual health check up allowing chronic conditions to be spotted sooner and reduce strain on hospitals, as well as avoiding the need of fining people for using A+E too much, as the tories want to.
Another area of our public services which is being pushed to breaking point is our prisons. Perhaps, as we have always strongly believed, that if we didn't persecute the most vulnerable in society, there wouldn't be as many crimes committed and therefore as many citizens incarcerated? Let's have our local Green MSPs empowering all of Scotland by meeting local community leaders of all backgrounds so that specific local root causes of crime can be identified. Another cause of our bulging prison population is reoffending rates. Let's get these people when they're in prison the first time, offer optional paid work and skills they can use to rebuild their lives in their communities.
I’m off down to Central Station now to catch the 17:01 back home to East Kilbride, I'll be spending the last two days of the campaign meeting local voters in my hometown. So remember to vote Scottish Green on Thursday, and tell all your friends, family, neighbours, even random strangers on the subway, why they should too. That way we can empower all of Scotland.”

2017.01.16 13:13 malalatargaryen Complete list of the longest-ever win streaks [20+] and unbeaten runs [40+] across all competitions

These lists only include win streaks and unbeaten runs across all official competitions (league, cup, continental, other) - league-only win streaks are listed by Wikipedia1 , and league-only unbeaten runs are listed by RSSSF2 .

20B Nacional19 Uruguay ?/?-?/?/1941 Uruguayan Primera División (20)
A Many media sources20,21,22 - and even Ajax's Twitter account23 - have counted East Kilbride's run as 30 wins (from 26/3) - but a careful observation reveals that the 9th match of that run (the Lowland League Cup final vs Gretna 2008) was a goalless draw after 120 minutes, with East Kilbride winning the penalty shoot-out24 , and since (as per the official laws of football) the kicks from the penalty mark are not part of the match25 , and for all statistical purposes, a match decided by penalty shoot-out is considered a draw26 , the win streak can only be counted from the next match.
B Nacional also won the last 10 matches of the 1940 Primera División27 , but between the two seasons they drew the Copa Ricardo Aldao28 - although because Boca Juniors refused to play on after 90 minutes (with the scores level), the trophy was awarded to Nacional.
Teams who might have won 20+ matches
Czechoslovakian team Sparta Praha won at least 25 consecutive league matches from ?/?/1919-?/?/192129 , and won the Stredoceský Pohár in 1919 and 1920 (and reached the final in 1921)30 - but precise details of their cup runs are missing, and it is possible that they had one or more draws (and replays) on the way to the final.
Hungarian team Ferencváros won 22 straight league matches from ?/?/1931-?/?/193231 , and reached the final of the 1931-32 Magyar Kupa32 - but again, precise details of their cup run are missing, and it is possible that they had one or more draws (and replays) on the way to the final.
Albanian team Dinamo Tiranë won 25 straight league matches from 18/4/1951-1/6/195233 - the last 10 matches of the 1951 Albanian Superliga34 and the first 15 matches of the 1952 Albanian Superliga35 , as well as the QF, SF, and final of the 1951 Albanian Cup36 (admittedly, the QF and SF might have been held before their league win streak started) - but they were held to a draw in the QF of the 1952 Albanian Cup, held in March37 - unfortunately, as precise details on the match dates are missing, there is no way to know how long their win streak was across all competitions.
The reserves team of English team Salisbury City, who played in the Suburban League, are reported to have won 26 straight league and cup matches from ?/?/2007-?/?/200838 - but I have been unable to find any records of that league or of the results of that team in 2007-08.
(Scottish team Rangers had a run of 28 wins from 20/8/1898-15/4/189939,40,41,42 [18 Scottish Division One, 4 Scottish Cup, 4 Glasgow League, 2 Glasgow Cup], but in the middle of that run they drew a match in the Glasgow Cup [15/10/98], lost a match in the Glasgow Cup [12/11/98], and drew a match in the Glasgow League [11/3/99].
Jordanian club Al-Faisaly SC had a run of 28 wins from 20/8/2001-21/6/200243,44 [16 Jordanian Premier League, 8 Jordanian FA Shield, 4 Jordanian FA Cup], but in the middle of that run [29/11/01], they drew a match in the Arab Club Champions Cup45 [although they withdrew from the ACCC after that match, with the result annulled in regards to that competition, the result still stands in regards to their win streak].)

C Includes the 2004-05 Egypt Cup R16 match vs Ghazl Al-Mehalla (11/12/04), which Al Ahly lost on penalties, since (as per the official laws of football) the kicks from the penalty mark are not part of the match97 - if their streak is only counted from after that match, it was 41 matches unbeaten (from 15/12/04).
D Doesn't include the matches played in the Taça Ribeiro dos Reis98,99 , as Benfica apparently fielded their reserves or youth team in that competition (thanks to u/poorportuguese for pointing that out) - to quote Wikipedia100 - "due to the lack of commitment of the country's most important clubs, this competition is not considered by some of the Portuguese media as a major competition, or included in their recent lists of official trophies won by the Portuguese football clubs".
E The 52-match unbeaten streak often attributed to Botafogo is in fact only 44 - 8 of the matches were friendlies ("Amistosos").
F Lincoln Red Imps played as "Newcastle FC" from 2002-03101 thorugh 2006-07, and reverted back to their original name ahead of the 2007-08 season102 .
(The 54-unbeaten streak by Uruguayan club Peñarol listed by The Guardian103 is false - over the period of their 56-match unbeaten league streak104 , which ran from 3/9/1966-6/9/1969, they lost to Nacional in the 1967 Copa Libertadores SF105 , to Libertad in the 1968 Copa Libertadores first round106 , to Palmerias [twice] in the 1968 Copa Libertadores SF107 , and to Nacional in the 1969 Copa Libertadores SF108 .
The 54-unbeaten streak by Brazilian team Santos listed in the same article is also false - between late 1961 and early 1963, they lost to América on 19/11/61 [Taça Brasil]109 , to Palmeiras on 29/11/61 [Campeonato Paulista]110 , to Peñarol on 2/9/62 [Copa Libertadores Finals]111 , to Portugesa on 6/10/62 and to Esportiva Guaratinguetá on 9/12/62 [Campeonato Paulista]112 , to Fluminese on 23/3/63 [Torneio Rio – São Paulo]113 , and to Botafogo on 31/3/63 [Taça Brasil]114 .)

2014.09.24 07:39 tabledresser [Table] IamA 15 year old American football player in England, and my team just came second in the national final, AMA!

Questions Answers
Did u come second out of two teams? We played our regular season, and went 11 and 1, so we made it to Britbowl along with 7 other teams. Our first game at Britbowl was against the Leicester Falcons, who we beat. Our second game was against East Kilbride Pirates which no one knew anything about, and it ended up going to overtime, which we won. This put us through to the final against Highland Wildcats, which we were tied in until the last 5 minutes when they scored and we couldn't score again so we lost.
Overall, we finished above these teams and ranked number 2 on defence and number 4 on offense.

When I was in Australia this summer, I met an English rugby player who had just gotten a scholarship to play rugby in University. He said that American football is definitely more intense than rugby, but his family said otherwise. Which side of the fence are you on? You should come to The States sometime and go to a game in every stadium. It's become a fairly big thing here. Additionally, doing such a thing would allow you to take in American football first hand, AND see a large portion of the United States. How would you feel about doing this? Football is definitely more intense even if you are only on the field for like 20 seconds, you have to constantly be doing something and you could make that play at any second. When I was around 11, my older brother went off to university and he played rugby. When he went to the try outs for the uni rugby team, they basically said no game time unless you've played county/national level rugby, which he hadn't. So he went to look at other sports and found football, and when we went to watch his games I enjoyed it a lot. He came home for a while, and started playing for the Maidstone Pumas, who didn't even have a youth team and I wasn't even old enough to play youth yet, so they actually let me train with the adults without all of the tackling and stuff, and then I started to love it even more. He went back to university, continued playing until he got his masters and came home, deciding to play for the Exiles this time to see if they could actually do anything useful since Maidstone sucked, and they recently folded actually. By this time, I was 13 and turning 14 in a few months which is the age for youth, so I started training with the youth team and now I play for them. Kinda long story.
As an Englishman who has tried to watch American football numerous times, but found it boring as hell. Why American football oveinstead of rugby? I played rugby before I started football, and still do sometimes. One main thing is that in a game of football the hype is insane, and the environment that you play in is just a lot more exciting/exhilarating than on a rugby field. Before I started playing, I couldn't watch it either due the the stop start nature and how often breaks were taken, but once you actually get into it and realise what's happening you start to enjoy it a lot more. Another thing is the actual game, even though with rugby you're on the field playing constantly and in football it's maybe 20 seconds then a break from the game, the 20 seconds are just completely filled with action and you're doing something constantly and you can make the play at any time. I know it sounds like you can do that in rugby, but football takes it to a new level. Also you get cool pads and shit, and the plays, tackling and everything is a lot more intense.
They say second place is the first loser. How do you feel about that? Does that mean that second place means nothing and you're the same as the other losers? If so, that's completely wrong. We put hours of our time and effort into football this season and it really showed on the field which teams cared and which didn't. We were easily the best defence at the tournament, we were one of the best offences at the tournament. The final was a very close game and anyone could've won; Highland were just the better team and managed to beat us. But we were the only two teams you could see really cared about why we were there and what we were doing, and I'm proud to come second to Highland.
Don't feed the trolls. He's trying to kill your joy because he has none himself. I don't care lol. I'll still be happy with what I got.
Good on you! (That is how they say "Good for you?" in England right?) Haha thanks, and people still say good for you :P.
What are your realistic draft chances in the future? To be honest, I don't see myself being able to be drafted anywhere, but there are some people I've known who are going to college in America to play but even they aren't really going to be playing much at all. Matt Murphy, who was an Exiles youth player, just started playing for Buffalo so I guess there is a chance but people in America grow up playing the sport, where as it's really just starting to even be noticed over here. Think of it like an American trying to come over and play rugby for England I guess.
How popular is american football in England? Boys at your age mostly play soccer so what's it like to be 'different'? It's still not a popular sport by any means, I know I'm the only one in my school who plays it out of just over 1200 people. It's definitely becoming more popular and getting more publicity which is great, and I hope it gets really big one day. As for being different, I play rugby as well and a lot of people who I've told about it on my school rugby team see it as a 'pussy sport' because of excess padding etc, others have been interested so I'm not really different.
I don't know much about sport but one thing kept coming up during the controversy of brain damage in the NFL. I heard some people saying rugby is more safe than football because they don't wear padding and helmets. I guess it almost made sense to me because as the bare-knuckle campaigner Dr Alan J Ryan pointed out: "In 100 years of bare-knuckle fighting in the United States, which terminated around 1897 with a John L Sullivan heavyweight championship fight, there wasn't a single ring fatality." Today, there are three or four every year in the US, and around 15 per cent of professional fighters suffer some form of permanent brain damage during their career. Worldwide, there have been over 400 boxing deaths in the last 50 years alone. Gloves spread the impact of a blow, the recipient of a punch is less likely to be blinded, have their teeth knocked out or their jaw broken. However, gloves do not lessen the force applied to the brain as it rattles inside the skull from a heavy blow. In fact, they make matters worse by adding 10oz to the weight of the fist. I think the logic is you're not going to tackle with as much brutality when your face and head is exposed. Is there any truth to this? One main dfference between tackling is that in football you can basically tackle anywhere you want and any way you want, as long as you stay off their facemask and collar. The pads sort of give you more ability to hit harder because you know it's there to protect you, so you're gonna be willing to go straight through someone. Also, in rugby a lot of tackles aren't full speed running, and the form of the tackle takes away from the shock and some of the power of the hit, because in football, if you tackle with proper form you're more upright, sprinting full speed at a guy and use your whole body to tackle vs rugby where you just your your legs/shoulders at maybe 75% speed.
As for the pads themselves being the cause of the injury, I don't know about, but I know I at least tackle a lot harder in football than rugby.
What EPL team you support? I don't actually follow the Premier League, never interested me.
What league do you follow? Championship? League 1,2,La Liga? I don't follow football at all, I find it kinda boring.
Not in the long run. its like a barenuckle fight vs a boxing match. you can only hit someone so hard and so often w/o a glove. NFL players will learn to tackle more like rugby players and severe injuries and especially head trauma will be reduced. I guess, but actually competitive bare knuckle fights are just as brutal as boxing, so maybe football would be the same?
ಠ_ಠ Haha I know it's a massive sport here I just can't watch it.
Bare knuckle fights are over very quickly. you dont have the repetitive head impacts in those cases. in boxing you are getting hit in the head for 36 minutes in some cases. its the repetition that causes the most harm. thats why the NFL is so on top of not letting concussed players continue. I see. Maybe concussions are just a risk you take playing the game lol.
My cousin coaches for the Merseyside Nighthawks, was a great game by all accounts. Oh cool, do the Nighthawks have a youth team? They're in a different division to us, so we don't play them unless they make it to britbowl.
Do you think there is enough interest in Football in the UK for a franchise based in London like some are suggesting? I think there is enough interest, I just don't see it happening with all the travel and costs. Players would be tired, and it would cost a lot to fly to America every week. It would be awesome to see, maybe I would be able to see some of their home games lol, but I don't think it's possible yet, maybe when the sport becomes bigger though.
Thats awesome, i play rugby myself (Irish). did you play rugby before american football, or american football before rugby? (i.e which one did you start first) and how did you find the transition? I've played rugby since I was 8/9, and started football 2 seasons ago. The transition was kind of weird, because the ways I'd been taught to tackle, catch, carry the ball and everything were all different in football. Once I started playing football, the rugby season had stopped so when I went back and started playing rugby again I also found that my techniques for rugby were completely different and a bit better lol.
