FIFA World Cup 2018

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

I'm assuming natural grass plays into consideration as to where games are played. Cause Vancouver would draw higher ticket prices than Edmonton for sure!
Yeah I believe FIFA will only consider natural grass. But didn't Vancouver/BC NDP also eliminate themselves, not wanting to spend the $$?

FIFA basically wanted a blank cheque with all priceeds going to them. NDP said screw you we have $10 day care and low income housing, so no money for FIFA. All the people in Vancouver applauded through the dope smoke.

Say no to FIFA but yes to free day care, free housing, free drugs, free place to do drugs.

Damn everyone else

Really good game between Spain and Portugal right now! Very entertaining! :thumbs:

Hoping the Spaniards will win, as I find Christiano Ronaldo rather intolerable.
Sure, he's a great footballer, but damn is he full of himself. and he plays for Real to boot.

Iceland holds Argentina to a draw! 1-1!

The first world cup game ever for Iceland, but they are tough to play against.
Big strong players who work really hard and follow their system perfectly.
Remember how they eliminated England in the 2016 Euro.
Seems they have their mind set on becoming giant slayers again! :D

Yeah, Germans playing to predictable, too conservative and could not handle the long counter attacks.

Going to be a surprising final 8 I think.

Me happy! :drink:

Two more games in the group play, against Germany and Mexico.
We need two draws or one win in those games to move on.

Or well, two draws is water proof.

One win could technically lead to a Mexican standoff; if South Korea loses all three games, Germany beats Sweden and Sweden beats Mexico. In that case there'll be three teams with six points, and who moves on will be decided by goal differential. :|
