[25th-Nov-14] Daily Rumour Mill

Why not a little Mario this time? Here's a look at the big stories making headlines this Tuesday in football: 1. Villa striker Darren Bent could join Tier 2 side Brighton & Hove Albion on load as he is unable to get playing time under current manager Paul Lambert. (Source: http://www.express.co.uk/sport/football/540039/Darren-Bent-Brighton-Aston-Villa-Update-Championship-Loan-Deal-Stars-Latest) 2. Hull City are looking to sign Spurs's Aaron Lennon. (Source: http://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/hull-target-another-tottenham-transfer-4693427) 3. Herrera & Evans for Manchester United played a reserve match today are looking to be back to full fitness. (Source: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-2849432/Ander-Herrera-Jonny-Evans-provide-Manchester-United-timely-injury-boost.html) 4. Liverpool are looking to sign three players for ยฃ47 million, one of which includes Chelsea #2 Petr Cech. (Source: http://metro.co.uk/2014/11/25/liverpool-ready-to-sign-petr-cech-jackson-martinez-and-nathan-redmond-in-47m-triple-transfer-deal-4962193/) 5. Wesley Sneijder is reported to be a transfer target for Manchester United after he was not included in Galatasaray's latest fixture. (Source: http://www.dailystar.co.uk/sport/football/412206/Wesley-Sneijder-snubbed-by-Galatasaray) My Thoughts: 1. I can see this move happening but I don't know why as only Abonglahor & Weimann have scored for Villa and they could use the finish touch that Bent has. 2. Would be a good signing for Hull but I don't see him coming cheaply. 3. Good news for Manchester United. More in terms of Herrera and not Evans, but a good sign none-the-less. 4. Liverpool's interest in Martinez & Redmond is an encouraging sign. Mignolet is a class keeper though and they don't need Cech. 5. Sneijder is good but not good enough to go to Man United and certainly not good enough to replace van Persie if reports are true that he will be leaving.

Love It Or Hate It: Live Sporting Events?
Welcome to the Funny Community game, Love It Or Hate It! This game is really similar to Monday's 'No Good or So Good' food game - except this one deals a lot more with non-food things. Every week, I highlight a different thing that a lot of people either really love or really hate and see how our community feels overall! Last week, I asked you how you felt about SELFIE STICKS. It was an EXTREMELY tight vote, but out of the 60 who gave your opinion, 33 of you said that they're actually kind of useful! Soooo... SELFIE STICKS WIN!!!! This week, I want to know: How do you feel about attending live sports games? Spectator sports have been around since the days of Ancient Greece, but the ones we know and love today came into being in the mid 19th century! The number of Americans that attend at least one live sporting event annually is easily in the tens of millions. However, the amount of them that find said sporting event COMPLETELY BORING is still widely unknown. How do YOU feel about spectator sports? Are they tons of fun or brutally boring? Debate, debate, debate! @Inaritricx @Taijiotter @wonyeop316 @AimeeH @XergaB20 @JustinaNguyen @Danse @RainaC3 @bnrenchilada @destiny1419 @arnelli @Luci546 @InPlainSight @Ash2424701 @GingerMJones @zwdodds @LenaBlackRose @misssukyi @TerraToyaSi @kneelb4zod @BrookeStam @RachelParker @JaxomB @ultraninja10 @reyestiny93 @MattK95 @MajahnNelson @petname83 @BluBear07 @melifluosmelodi @ZoilaObregon @GossamoKewen95 @TracyLynnn @TiffanyWallace @VixenViVi @DenieceSuit @ButterflyBlu @CelinaGonzalez @MaighdlinS @maddiemoozer @VeronicaArtino @iixel @TomHawthorne @DominiqueThomas @ElizabethT @RiggaFoster @AluSparklez @kvnguyen @chris98vamg @WiviDemol @animechild51 @2Distracted @cthulu @jazziejazz @JessicaChaney @shantalcamara @J1mbleJ4mz @Beeplzzz @carmaa10 @MayraYanez @Kamiamon @HeatherWright @MischiefK1ng @SeoInHan @ShonA @KennyMcCormick @MooshieBay @IMNII @Ikpoper @humairaa @merryjayne13 @zoemvillarreal @lilleonz @ChristinaOMalle @AllieGrabowski @baileykayleen @KarleyFrance @Ticasensei @EasternShell @musicundefined9 @peahyr @TerrecaRiley @MoisEsGaray @atmi @AlidaGarman @sanRico @orenshani7 @jannatd93 @ReadAnimateSwim @Astrohelix @dimplequeen @ChildofSparda13 @grapetoes2000 @sarahpjane @LittleHorn @justinasarmento @deilig @GalaxyTacoCat @amobigbang @LAVONYORK @Jason41 @kpopdeluxegirl @BlackDragon88 @Bobs @paularasnick @Animaniafreak @YumiMiyazaki @Patmanmeow @MarvelTrashcan @kawaiiporpoise @Xiuyeolhyun @MaggieHolm @xDaisyDaysx
Why Men Can't Buy the U.S. Women's National Soccer Team Jerseys
It is official. It is irrefutable. The U.S. women's national soccer team is the best in the world. So it would be natural for Americans, I mean all Americans, to support their women's national team by wearing their jerseys right? And that's especially true in the world of soccer, because soccer is all about pageantry. What you wear is critical to show true support for your team. And Nike, which is the official sponsor of both the Men's and Women's national soccer team, took in pre-orders just prior to the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup. But shortly after the pre-orders were sold out, Nike had to cancel all the orders. Why? The answer lies behind the two stars you see above the crest. These stars represent the number of World Cups that the U.S. women's national team has won (1991, 1995). Now after winning the 2015 World Cup, another star was added to their jerseys. But of course, the men's national soccer team does not have any stars above the crest, because well... they haven't won a World Cup yet. So, Nike decided to cancel the orders for the men's version of the women's national soccer team jerseys because it could give the false impression that the men's team have won those World Cups. What is this nonsense? What should the men and boys, who made up 61% of the 13.5 million viewers that tuned in for the 2011 World Cup finals do? It is such a shame that we still face gender inequality issues and it extends beyond the field. It even applies to fans and their freedom and passion to support their own team. A male fan should be able to wear an Alex Morgan uniform or Abby Wambach's uniform. And who cares if the women's national team won three World Cups and the men's national team hasn't won any? In the end, playing like a girl means you're a badass. What do my sports fans think about this issue?
