But then, maybe not. Do footballers have a conscience regarding sporting morality and fair play?
Footballers are ever looking out for ways to cheat and gain advantage in any way they can. Tonight the Lexi Thompson/ Dinah Shore ruling has been highlighted. They have another rule to overcome when playing the game of golf.
Golf, you just kicked Lexi Thompson in the stomach.
Mid-round, playing immaculate, powerful, golf and with a comfortable lead she was called for a previous day rule infringement.
Lexi is one of the most gifted honest kind and generous sports ladies around today. She always recognises her fans and they adore her.
The incident that caused a 2 stroke penalty, doubled to 4 strokes, was discovered by a TV viewer to have occurred in the previous days round. Not all the field were televised. So not all the field was under scrutiny by television viewers
The replay of the incident involved a putt of about 15 inches on a perfect patch of green. The penalty was for replacing a marked ball millimetres off the original marked spot – with absolutely no benefit to the player.
We now have a distraught golfing diamond, a winner who knows she did not have a winning score and a public who is very pissed off with the rules. No way should a ruling be allowed in retrospect, after finish of a days play.
To my mind a panel should have been set up to review this incident and have the power, at the very worst, to adjust the penalty to 2 strokes. Even with a 2 stroke penalty Lexi Thompson would have rightly won the Dinah Shore Championship.
As it turned out Lexi lost a play off activated because she actually suffered the full 4 strokes for signing a wrong card. Understandably, affected by the situation, Lexi drove into deep rough. Her opponent hit the green in two.
Golf is apparently governed by knowledgeable, wise, and often captains of industry.
Golf, you bloody fool, you really messed up this time.
But they were hit with bombs and rockets. Why were they not advised to leave the city?
Mosul is the site of genocide and soulless aggression.
“The wounded editor is in hospital, the statement said, and local media said he was in “grave” condition. So far this month, three journalists have been killed across Mexico, which is grappling with rising crime.” – news report.
My previous post becried the lack of brave journalists. But seems genuine journalists do exist albeit in fear of their lives. Governments owe it to their public to protect the conveyors of truth and morality. I certainly dont mean preaching, but shining a spotlight on matters the public themselves cannot or do not have time to do. The Mexican Government should feel the terrible guilt for the attack on its countries finest.
Would you agree a journalist’s job description calls for hard work, ethics, quality writing, and, at its heart, the desire to tell the truth?
Where are the top sport and political journalists?
My opinion of journalism is very low and highly suspicious.
They often appear mischievous, flippant or pompous.
They accept corporate scripts and write anything that will reward with money.
Content being at most secondary.
Sports journalists are simply Gossip Rattle Traps
Political journalists are pathetically, bought biased, or blind.
“Ramon Calderon, ex-president of the Spanish giants, claimed on Tuesday that a £100million bid would not be a problem for Real.” – clip from a news report.
Regularly over many years the selfish politics of Real Madrid act out without a care for other clubs and the ethical rules of football. Keep your politics inside your club Calderon. Your shenanigans gain no respect from the rest of us.
