The new European Rugby Champions Cup - a brief guide
by karlmcgowan on 11 Apr at 14:24
2014 is to be the last year of the Heineken Cup. After two years of argument and debate between the various European Rugby bodies an agreement was finally reached late on Thursday night in London. Once the winning team lifts the Heineken Cup trophy in Cardiff in May the competition will be dissolved and replaced by the new European Rugby Champions Cup. So what is this new Europe wide tournament and how does it differ from the current Cup arrangement. The main change is that there are now just 20 teams in the new Cup competition compared to 24 in the Heineken Cup with the Rabo Pro12 being the league that loses out. To compare: HEINEKEN CUP 13/14 - 6 Aviva teams - 6 Top14 teams - 12 Rabo Teams - Total 24. ..
Is the GAA the new Religion in Ireland?
by superslatts on 11 Apr at 12:34
World History(a bit long-winded) Throughout history there have been many superpowers who's influence has stretched far from their original borders. A lot of these have brought a trail of destruction with them but essentially the ones that have the best legacy have been the ones that have the ones that have brought something constructive to humanity. Regardless of what they did or didn't do for the greater good they tended to rule through a similar tactic and that is fear. Either through fear of being impaled on a spike, sent to the gallows, tortured, or eternal damnation in the afterlive by a ball of gas in the sky. Analysing the behaviour of all megalomaniac structures historically & modern it's evident that the key ingredient needed for any of these to succeed is a structured class system where the masses are generally subservient sheep..
Finding value on dual forecast in Formula 1
by botev1921 on 14 Apr at 23:46
Recently we had a very lively discussion in the Motor Sports forum here at OLBG about the current developments in the Formula 1 and the availability of ‘value’ in the Mercedes-dominated season, which gradually turns into a dream come true for the bookies. With Hamilton and Rosberg having incredible cars at their disposal and looking solid as rock, finding any sort of value selections is left mostly to the chance of having some of the smaller teams make it to the one remaining spot at the podium in the Podium finish market or hope that one of the complete outsiders somehow manage a point for us to enjoy a 4/1 winner there. While we were discussion, which is why I strongly recommend you check the individual race threads in the forum (Formula 1 Betting Forum), I came to realize that..

NHL Play-offs - First Round Preview
by undertherobe on 13 Apr at 23:37
It’s amazing how quickly an 82 game season passes by but with the elongated format of the NHL Playoffs, we're nowhere nearly done just yet. 16 of the 30 teams have battled through to the knockout phase where they will face off through four rounds of best of seven matchups for the right to lift the Stanley Cup. So how do the teams match up in Round One? Eastern Conference Detroit Red Wings @ Boston Bruins What a matchup this promises to be. This is the first playoff meeting between these Original 6 teams since 1957. Boston prevailed back then in 5 games and it’s hard to see them failing to do so in 2014. That being said, despite the Bruins having the best record in the NHL, they have lost 3 of 4 to Detroit this season. Detroit has done well to..
CHAMPIONS LEAGUE - Semi-finals analysis and final four chances
by botev1921 on 11 Apr at 14:07
The Champions league is now getting closer to its anticipated culmination and while all teams that made it to the semi-finals are certainly deserving to be there, some have showed more over the course of the season on all fronts and are favored over others. The draw, as fate often dictates, allowed some creativity for punters when it comes to picking up a winner and at the same time increased or diminished significantly the chances of each of the four teams. I rarely analyze this stage of the Champions league, but this time there are aspects, way too important to ignore and not dedicate a small article to. THE FINAL FOUR There is a sensible trend among journalists, fans and punters that there are two pairs of teams that made the semi-finals with a small but sensible enough gap between them in..
