Valencia's comeback was really something else. I still think Juve wins Europa.

What a fight by ManU. Hats off to them.

Oh and LOL, Barça! Smiley

I wouldn't say Boyle is a Moderate Hero but he is certainly the most moderate. Leach would be another Grayson (Grayson endorsed his candidacy). Margolies is establishment elite in the Schwartz mold. Arkoosh is a blend of activist and professional.

Margolies has had many, many stumbles and her past problems have been brought to light again but I still think she's favored.

The underlying issue is still well in the news as well:  http://www.pennlive.com/midstate/index.ssf/2014/04/pa_lawmakers_call_for_fuller_d.html#incart_m-rpt-1

The very Democratic leaning State College Centre Daily Times, which endorsed her, and didn't cover the story for two weeks (at least on-line) came out with a blistering editorial on that and the "investigation of the investigation." 

According to Wikipedia, the major good government group, "The Committee of Seventy," has called for a special prosecutor to investigate Kane.

From it's own Wiki leak, the Committee of Seventy seems like an upright non-partisan group. But lordy that is an Orwellian sounding name.

I can confirm that 70 is a good government watchdog group. Tongue

Chelsea pulled it off, as expected. And Dortmund almost pulled off the shocker but not quite. The hope for a Chelsea vs. Real Madrid Semi (or Final) lives.

The fact that this is still a thing should make people very, very sad.

So anything new on Kane's scandal, or has that died down some?

Michelle Obama is never going to run for any political office.

Anyone with any political knowledge knows that but, hey, we'll still have a few polls and blurbs mentioning her as a potential candidate just because!

I almost expected Schwartz to wait maybe two weeks longer and then start pounding the airwaves all at once as the Wolf honeymoon started to die down.

New IPR Italy poll shows FDI at 3.9% (threshold is 4%).

Wouldn't FI going with the Le Pen coalition be a pretty massive blow to EPP?

That will not happen. If the EPP wants them, than FI will take part. Their other option is the ECR but not Le Pen.

Well, FDI is with Le Pen, as far as I can tell so I guess that closes the door on FI-FDI.

Enjoy that fourth place finish again, Gunners!

I owe you guys an apology. Enjoy fifth place.

My Forecast

Probability to overcome the threshold of 4%

Democratic Party - 100,00%
5 Stars Movement - 100,00%
Forza Italia - 100,00%
New Centre Right - Udc - Populars - 98,44%
Lega Nord - 75,15%
Other Europe with Tsipras - 61,07%
Brothers of Italy - AN - 13,50%
European Choice (Civic Choice - Democratic Centre - Fare) - 0,93%
Greens - Green Italia - 0,00%
Italy of Values - 0,00%
Svp - 0,00%

Two decimals?

To be more precise :p

In Italy, the polls are reported with one decimal. In the United States, the majority of the polls are reported without decimals.

Yes, I now, but how do you get those numbers?

Is a my calculation.

Wow. The real Italians even type in their accent!

Yes (not normal, it seems)
This is an American forum, remember. 90% of them thinks the sporting world revolves around them.

Ah, I can't wait for the arguments during the World Cup when the ignorants insist the Super Bowl is the biggest single sporting event on the planet. These arguments will often coincide with their point that the U.S. will romp to three victories in the Group stage.  

Absolutely. MLS fans are terribles and I hope to bask in their pain when the time comes.

BTW, did Bushie get into the World Cup at all back in 2010? It would be hilarious to see that this year.

Shut up, Snowstalker.

So that answers that about NCD (and FDI). I guess the center-left alliance will definitely be the top vote getter now.

No.

Just find it hard to give much of a  about football at the domestic level, given I have no real background in the sport and my country's domestic league is dire.
It's football, not soccer.

I actually loathe this sport, but that just irks me, maybe 'cuz I like the English Terminology better, considering in actual Football, you use your foot.

It stands to reason that an Australian poster on an American website would use the term "soccer" as is standard in both countries.
Well, I like to call it football.

And that's cool but this whole, "It's not Soccer!" is as idiotic as the dopes here that insist it shouldn't be called Football.

Doubling down the closer you get to the election is going to make this a lot more painful for him.

But Ocare's success helps him.

Leave.

Yes, I'm hoping for PSG to go all the way this year.

Supporting the most Italian team (I can't really support them because they're a fake club and French/Parisian) over two German teams? Wink

I want all those German national team players well rested for the World Cup. Wink

Looks like the final is going to be Bayern-Real Madrid though, and there's really no way that wouldn't be an amazing game.

Well, we can't say it looks like that will be the Final when we don't know how the Semis will be drawn. That could be a Semi final. I hope it isn't though. I want Real Madrid vs. Chelsea next round so Mourinho has to go back to Madrid. That said, it would be awesome to see him lose to Madrid in the Final (in Portugal, no less).

Disgusting real and exaggerated political views. He's always been cool to me though and he's a Soccer fan (even if he usually supports stupid teams).
