So we can't expect him to depcapitate a goalie? Darn.
|1 day 30 min ago||Yes. FOX (the main station)||
Yes. FOX (the main station) has it.
|1 day 2 hours ago||There are a ton of tickets on||
There are a ton of tickets on Stubhub (there were over 4,700 last night when I checked).
In other news, Cristiano Ronaldo is now going to be at the game. Link
|4 days 20 hours ago||What?||
Detroit already has museums, an aquarium, and transportation—granted, this is the barest transportation system possible and it sucks. The DIA is a major attraction for the art scene—hence the huge fight to keep it away from a potential sell-off. The Science Center has re-opened thanks to a massive donation and is in good health. The aquarium is running again after having been closed for a number of years.
With the exception of transportation, you're targeting the wrong areas for improvement. Look at schools and blight/crime in the neighborhoods, not museums.
|4 days 20 hours ago||It was originally||
The original plan called for a capacity of 18,500. Now, however, it's going to have a capacity of about 20,000 seats.
|4 days 23 hours ago||Can't link via mobile||
But they (SEMCOG) have already purchased the equipment and have been refurbishing the cars for the line. Target date to start is 2016.

Let's see you invest in it then. You can do whatever you want in any number of areas.
Edit: You're not wrong, there are many more important areas that need attending to besides an arena. But there's no reason to complain about a massive development that will help spur an area that's been deslolate since at least the 1980s.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I'd post "Oh wie ist das schön" as well||
But I can't find a video of it that isn't thoroughly annoying.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Well that was enjoyable.||
Well that was enjoyable.

You'd guess correctly. Auf gehts (or, to go with the dialect of my avatar, Pack ma's)!
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Cards reset after the quarterfinals||
One could be suspended for the semifinals via card accumulation (which is why Thiago Silva is out), but yellow cards are reset after the quarterfinals in order to ensure that no one is suspended for the final via card accumulation.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Fair point||
I can understand that.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||I dunno||
Saying Klinsmann's style is un-American and that he should have been fired if the US had not made it out of the group stage is quite irrational. That and the fact that he's going to be doing games with Gus Johnson in 2018 is going to piss off a ton of people. Anyone who makes Gus look good on soccer broadcasts (at this point in time) should not be doing them.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||For reference||
The Dutch flat out failed to qualify in 2002. This led to a documentary from a couple of Dutch filmmakers creating a documentary about the two worst teams in the world at that point (Bhutan and Montserrat) called The Other Final. It's worth watching if you have a chance just to see what it's like at the low end of the FIFA rankings.
Argentina also didn't get out of the group stage in 2002. Germany, Brazil, and Mexico are the only ones to have done it in the modern format. Argentina (and I bet a few others) did it when there was a second round of group games awhile back.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Yes, but||
Watching Shawn Hunwick stonewall North Dakota in 2011 remains one of my favorite memories while in school. It's not like it always backfires.

Hooray! Larkin to Detroit!
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Yep. As for the transfer bit,||
Yep. As for the transfer bit, there's a discussion ongoing about whether that holds up (transfers are apparently covered under article 23, not 22) so that should be interesting to follow as well.
EDIT: FIFA have said that he can transfer between clubs. That answers that question.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||The bigger question becomes||
The bigger question becomes whether or not those nine games are only for competitive matches. I would think that friendlies are included in that number, but not counting friendlies would be the harshest way to implement it (and probably the right one, too).
EDIT: Yanked from Liverpool's SB Nation site: The player Luis Suárez is to be suspended for nine (9) official matches. The first match of this suspension is to be served in the upcoming World Cup™ fixture between Colombia and Uruguay on 28 June 2014. The remaining match suspensions shall be served in Uruguay’s next World Cup match(es), as long as the team qualifies, and/or in the representative team’s subsequent official matches in accordance with art. 38 par. 2a) of the .
|4 weeks 1 day ago||I believe that is 9 FIFA||
I believe that is 9 FIFA related matches. The four month ban is the part to look at, since it essentially rules him out of club matches until the end of October. That isn't a small ban. In my opinion, FIFA actually got this right.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Muntari was already out for today's match||
As a result of yellow card accumulation. So that wouldn't have mattered anyways.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Yes via card accumulation||
Yellow cards don't reset until after the quarterfinals.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||I'd rather watch a game at||
I'd rather watch a game at Yost than at Michigan Stadium. It's much more entertaining.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Really?||
Guess I missed that one. Still, it's not like he did anything against Croatia when he was healthy...
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Form||
He was invisible in the first game against Croatia. No one has made mention of him being injured but most expected him to be dropped for this game.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Now this is more along the||
Now this is more along the lines of what was expected.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||So is Fellaini good again?||
So is Fellaini good again?
|5 weeks 3 days ago||WOW||
This is surprising.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||And this isn't even early||
And this isn't even early 2013 Lukaku when his confidence was shot and he missed that penalty against Bayern in the UEFA Super Cup. That loan out to Everton might have been the best thing to happen to him.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||They also tried doing it when||
They also tried doing it when Michigan was only up one score too. It was getting messed up a couple of years ago too, if I remember correctly.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Too bad Benteke's out injured||
Or Belgium would be even more of a buzzsaw than they already are.
