It has been a long and atypical season for Barcelona in La Liga and in Champions League, that’s no secret for anyone. Things didn’t look too well since the ending of last season, when Lionel Messi told the team he wanted to leave, and it practically stopped the whole football world. In the end, Josep Maria Bartomeu forced him to stay, which might just turn out to be his biggest accomplishment as club president, if the Argentinian superstar finally agrees to stay.
Bartomeu is now out of the team and could even go to jail, after making many wrong choices as team president in the past few years. Him being there was probably the cause of Messi wanting to leave, but now that he’s gone, and Joan Laporta is back officially, Messi could decide to change his mind and stay, and negotiations have officially begun.
In fact, making sure that Messi stays with the club was one of Laporta’s biggest promises in his campaign, so now he must go to work and try to deliver.
The Nevada State Athletic Commission voted to suspend boxing, MMA, and other combat sports events until March 25. Nevada suspends combat sports events after the conclusion of an emergency meeting to address the COVID-19 outbreak.
The NSAC scheduled their next meeting on March 25. The commissioners will vote on that day on whether they will allow combat sports or continue with the suspension. They named NSAC executive director Bob Bennett as the lead person in recommending how they will move forward after the next meeting.
Bennett told PPH bookie reporters that he is continuously communicating with medical professionals. Also, he knows all the amateur and professional sports events suspended for an indefinite period. He will continue to collect data to provide more information about the virus at their next meeting.
As a result of the suspension, Tuff-N-Uff was canceled. There were no major professional MMA or boxing events scheduled for the weekend in Vegas. However, there are three events scheduled three days after the next NSAC meeting, according to sportsbook PPH sources.
Not many American sports fans understand how the Rugby tournament works, so we’ll start with a brief 2015 Rugby World Cup overview in terms of the points earned for winning (and bonus points).
Like a soccer tournament, there are pools of teams that will each play each other, with the top two teams after the group stage advancing to the Quarterfinals. In soccer, you earn three points for a win, one points for a draw, and zero points for a loss.
In rugby, however, a win earns four points, a draw earns two, and a loss earns zero. There are also bonus points that can be earned for both the winning and losing teams.
