They can stick it up their arse.


The biggest bentest unsportingingest sports event in one of the biggest bentest countries in the world.

I'll get more pleasure watching my kid play high school hockey.

 :eek:

woah there cowboy.

i enjoy watching my kids play sports too. i also enjoy watching others doing their thing.

i never said i agree with whats going on....watching peeps winning is still entertaining.

and the opening ceremony should be entertaining too.

doesn't mean i wanna see some poor fool get worked over by an over zealous authority tho.

i'm trying to see the cup half full here.

Now....if you were to start a sweepstake on which country/sport would be first to a doping scandal, I'd watch, but prancing around with a ribbon on a stick doesn't fall within my definition of sport, nor do a whole heap of other fringe events.

If it can't attract a dozen spectators at my local sports centre, it certainly doesn't make my list of 'must-see television'.

oh yeah, there's a whole bunch of s**t that doesn't interest me too.

but then again there is a whole bunch of stuff that does.

im with dab here looking forward to it :jump:

there is a whole heap of sport i am not interested in.

but a whole lot i love watching

and funnily enough, my parents were always very proud watching my sports, which BTW included netball, soccer,rugby, volleyball and "prancing around with a ribbon on a stick"

"prancing around with a ribbon on a stick" is not a sport, and never will be. :grimace2:

We wont be watching here
Apart from the fact that westy doesnt believe its sport
if it doesnt have an engine, im not interested in
anything China has to offer, until they nicer to people
and alot nicer to animals
(poor westy hates it now,i always checking the "made By" tag :hehehe: )

Post by: dab on Fri 8 August, 2008 - 12:02 pm
thats a shame Franky...you'll miss some good stuff...including some of our best sports people to ever compete in an olympics.

i know what you say about the human/animal rights thing.

bear in mind that there are 1 billion peeps in China....and only a very few who call the shots in power.

so it's hard to judge a whole country by the actions of maybe .000000000000000001%(give or take) of the population.

i know Franky...it's weird cus quite a few chinese see animals as food...and it's cruel for us to see that s**t happening to the poor critters.

but then on the flip side...there is a whole bunch of asians(pakistan etc) that see us eating/killing cows as wrong....strange old world.

and i bet if what the chinese chefs do to animals was compared to what some of our peeps do to their pets , on a per head of population we are probably far worse.


anyways....on with the games!!

 i'm still gobsmacked..i watched it till the end...but i did crash out for a small part..i managed to catch the lighting of the torch, it was beautiful and i almost shed a tear.

When was Tai Chi Chuan first documented?

I thought that the majority of the martial arts were derived from Shaolin....I know the story is something along the lines of: a monastery was invaded and 5 monks survived and fled to an island.

Where they set up a monastery and developed the martial art Shaolin. Other martial arts eg: Karate, kung fu etc all came down from this.


Something like that...Pants can recite a whole fifty chapters of the history by heart Si Fu drummed it into them lol (that's just the part I remember..quite possibly somewhat incorrectly?)

Chang San-feng (ancient Taoist) developed Tai Chi Chuan in Tong Dynasty (6180AD to 907AD)

Chang San-feng lived on Wudang Mountain and the name Wudang was taken to acknowledge Chang San-feng's status as the founder of Tai Chi Chuan.

This martial art of Tai Chi is based on the concepts of The Yin Yang Relationship.

All Kung Fu and Sholin Kung fu is derived from Tai Chi Chuan.

Tai Chi is in itself very comprehensive in meaning. In the philosophical sense it explains everything in the universe. It treats the universe as an unity. The Taoists called this 'Tao'..or "The Way'.

Karate is Japanese and bears no relationship to Tai Chi.

I wasn't 100% sure about the history of Shaolin, and Pants is picking up master 15


Hey, Was there a Tong Dynasty as well as the Tang Dynasty?


The Shaolin Monastery was established though in 497 

"The martial arts Shuāi Jiāo and Sun Bin Quan, to name two, predate the establishment of the Shaolin Monastery by centuries"


Martial arts have been around for a billion gaagillion freakin years  :eek:

We have quite a few Asian clients....they are super particular - usually using 'their own'


But we did a contract for one client...and the word of mouth has been amazing. Once you're in...you're in.

We have been invited out for dinner several times now by clients, and it is fantastic. Sitting down and 'sharing' a meal with them is a real experience...They have such a different way of eating a meal.
I've eaten bloody all sorts  (having to be polite and not embarrass the Pants - who is a little more familiar with fried right yak testicle)  :eek:

half time same score.......


one of our players got a yellow card, apparently he got one in the game against china as well, which means he can't play in the next game. Commentators say it is a big loss for our team, can't see how it can be, he bloody useless enough to get 2 yellow cards in 2 games, he might as well come home now, useless plick.........  :strange:

we have good swimming pools

and f**king bulls**t BRONZE IMO...

they cleaned up the Aussies too..


problem is with cycling pursuit your time determines if you go through to the gold medal or bronze medal match........ NZ had the 3rd best time so we went thru to bronze..

GB and Denmark had the best times.. so they went thru to gold medal...

but thing is we were FASTER than the denmark team... in our first qualifying round we were 2nd fastest and you then play the 2nd worst team in the next round... and because they are a bad team you end up having to lap them (which was spain) and that takes seconds of your time... the danes qualified down and raced a good team so they never had to lap anyone so they beat us by a couple of seconds..

but they were dicked by the Brits in the final...... they rode over 4 minutes.. were we rode 3.57 against the aussies.... the wrong team was in the final, we should of been there.. bulls**t qualifying system

Kendall didn't need a coach.......he was/is a brilliant sailor in any craft., i doubt there was anything a coach could teach Bruce that he didn't learn growing up.

Kendall didn't need a coach.......he was/is a brilliant sailor in any craft., i doubt there was anything a coach could teach Bruce that he didn't learn growing up.

Keep in mind big Bro like me but x100 in the gross stakes

My Official Review..............

Hosting of the Event;

With all the controversy leading up to the games, even I was concerned all the political protests and Smog issues would ruin the games, but China has done a wonderfull job.. the smog was no worse than china, the hong kong green elgy was minimal and the spirit of sport pushed politics to the bench..

The infrastructure was amazing, the Birds nest was the best stadium I have ever seen. The water cube was truly amazing.. Every Stadium and arena were massive and brand spanking new..

it sounded like the chinese were great hosts too... Although the stadiums and arenas were mostly full, there were quite a few gaps in seats early on, and considering the amount of people in china that was pretty dissapointing.. however the birds nest was always packed for the athletics..

ther ceremonies were amazing, thanks to have thousands of people to use.. Fireworks were great aswell, just a shame about NZ's commentary.


Performance:

China did better than I expected..They cleaned up in events in which chinese atheletes are not well known for.. The money they have put in definetly paid off..

The USA underperformed in gold medals this olympics.. Their Track and Field team was absolutely Hopeless considering past efforts.. Australia aswell had their worst games in a while, their usual swimming success was not there and no decent track and field athletes didnt help them...

Great britain had their best olympics in a long time, and its about time, their past perfomances have been pathetic considering their population and economy. Its definetly looking good for them going into 2012 and good too see their athletes getting more golds than silver and then bronze.... Jamaica have done amazing considering their Population size thanks to a few amazing athletes, Im still not 100% certain on if they are drug free......All the media has been saying NZ had a good olympics considering the size and money we put in, but I think we didnt do as well as we could of, there were medals we should have won and bronzes that should have been turned into gold..

Star Of the Games?
Usain Bolt for me... purely because of his character and the absolute freak he was... Phelps was good too, but hes a pretty quiet guy and although he got a record 8 golds, they were all in pretty similar events..

controversies?

China's underage medalists...... The "dodge" judging in gymnastics and wresting where a sweedish wrestler dumped his bronze in protest.. also the cuban tae qan du fighter that kicked the ref over a bad call..

TV Coverage:

although all the s**t TVNZ got, I thought their coverage was A+, there is only so much you can show at once, and they made sure NZ saw all our moments that mattered.. 4 streaming channels on the Internet was truly Awesome.. The hosts geoff bryan and Peter williams esp were gold medal efforts.. tony street and Lavina Good  should be dumped, they have no sporting knowledge and their questions to athletes were USELESS.... Keith Quinn and John McBeth and Brendon telfer were solid as always...... Peter Montgomery was Usless in the rowing, making some stupid mistakes... the british commentators we got for certain events were fantastic and always made sure we knew were the NZ competitors were in the event.....My only issue, is that the reporters esp the rowing dork would stop talking up NZ chances, its a pretty big let down when the race happens and our "gold medal" chance finishes 8th..

Best Events?

All the sports were great too watch no matter what.. the athletics as always was fantastic, but just a shame it was on a bit late at night.. Gymnastics was good apart from the chinese domination, the skills the girls had were exceptional...The close swimming races were amazing to watch esp, the US relay where they pipped the french and  phelps's come from behind win in the medly. The BMX was a great inclusion into the games, fast , exciting and rough!


Jacques Rogges "truly excpetional games" statement was a fair comment which beijing deserved, it was right up there with the "greatest games ever" in sydney and I dont think London has a s**t show in getting anywhere near..


Im off to go buy the PS3 official game to continue the dream!

My Official Review..............

Hosting of the Event;

With all the controversy leading up to the games, even I was concerned all the political protests and Smog issues would ruin the games, but China has done a wonderfull job.. blah blah blardy blah blah....

sorry, should have added...the most spectacular opening ceremony the olympics have ever seen which displayed China's traditions and inventions which have become a norm in western civilisations and which western man has taken a great deal of unwarranted credit for.

Some Olympic Facts from Yahoo



1) China won the most gold medals at the Beijing Games with 51. They become the first country to crack the 50-gold mark since the Soviet Union in 1988. The most golds ever won in a single Olympics is 83 (United States, 1984).

2) It's the first time since 1936 that a country other than the United States or the Soviet Union has led the medal count.

3) China won more golds in Beijing (51) than they did total medals in Atlanta (50).

4) 'Project 119' was a Chinese initiative designed toward winning golds in the medal-rich sports of swimming, track, rowing, kayaking and sailing. Reports are already crediting Project 119 with China's dominance in the gold medal count, but Chinese athletes won just four golds in those sports. Their total was instead augmented by even better performances in Chinese-dominated events like diving, gymnastics and table tennis.

5) The United States won the same amount of golds (36) that they did in Athens, continuing a remarkable consistency that the nation has exhibited over the past half-century. American Olympic gold totals since 1952: 40, 32, 34, 36, 45, 33, 34, 83, 36, 37, 44, 38, 36 and 36. (The outlier of 83 was from the boycotted 1984 Los Angeles Olympics.)

6) The overall medal count was won by the United States for the fourth consecutive Olympics. The U.S. earned 110 medals, compared to China's 100.

7) Per capita, China won one gold medal for every 25 million people in the country. The United States' per capita rate was one gold for every 8.5 million. The tiny island nation of Jamaica, which won a staggering six golds in Beijing, had a per capita rate of one gold for every 450,000 residents. Had China won at that rate, the country would have earned 2,889 golds.

8) Greece won 16 medals as the host country in 2004. Four years later, the founders of the Olympics managed just four -- their lowest total since 1992.

9) African countries won a total of 40 medals, the highest total in history for the continent.

10) Six countries won their first ever Olympic medals: Afghanistan, Bahrain, Mauritius, Sudan, Tajikistan and Togo.

11) Great Britain won 47 medals, the most in their history and a 17-medal increase from Athens. Expect an even higher total in 2012, when the Games will be held in London for the first time in 68 years. The last time Great Britain competed in a Summer Olympics on its home turf, they earned a disappointing three golds.

12) India has 17% of the world's population. They won 0.31% of Olympic medals.

13) China: 19.8% of population, 10.4% of medals.

14) United States: 4.6% of population, 11.5% medals.

15) Jamaica: 0.041% of population, 1.15% medals.

16) Iceland was the least populous country to win an Olympic medal.

17) Pakistan was the most populous country not to win an Olympic medal (164 million residents, sixth-largest nation in the world).

18) Michael Phelps would have finished tied for 9th in the gold medal count, ahead of countries including France, Netherlands, Spain, Canada, Argentina, Switzerland, Brazil and Mexico.

19) The rest of the world won seven golds in men's swimming events. Phelps, of course, won eight.

20) The United States won the most golds (7) and most total medals in the track competition (23), despite having what was widely considered a disappointing meet

21) More proof that boxing is dead in the United States: the country earned just one medal (a bronze) in the 12 boxing events. Even after three straight disappointing boxing performances at the Summer Games, the U.S. has still won the most Olympic boxing medals (109) in history.

22) China won 8 out of 12 possible medals in table tennis and 7 of 8 possible golds in diving.

23) Great Britain won 7 of 10 golds in track cycling and won 12 medals overall. The rest of the world earned 18 medals in the sport.

24) National gold-medal sweeps: Basketball (USA), Beach Volleyball (USA), Rhythmic Gymnastics (RUS), Synchronized Swimming (RUS), Table Tennis (CHN) and Trampoline (CHN).

25) Sweden had the best medal tally (4 silver, 1 bronze) without winning a gold.

26) Armenia won 6 bronze medals, but no gold or silver ones.

27) Speaking of former Soviet states, members of the former Soviet Union won a total of 173 medals in Beijing.

28) In 1992, Cuba finished 5th in the gold medal count. In 2008, the nation finished 28th.

29) From 1980 to 2008, Jamaica won three Olympic golds. In a span of six days in Beijing, Usain Bolt won three.

30) Sweden was a fixture in the top-three of the overall medal count for the early part of the 20th century. In Beijing, the Scandinavian country finished 38th and was shut-out in golds for just the second time in history.

31) Panama and Mongolia won the first gold medals in their respective histories.

32) China won 27 gold medals in judged sports.

33) The United States won 4 gold medals in judged sports.

34) China's "real" medal tally was 24/17/14/55.

35) The "real" medal tally for the United States: 32/31/27/80.

36) In all, 958 medals were handed out to athletes from 87 countries, the most medals and medal receipients in Olympic history

stole this from meggss who stole it from tm who prolly stole it from somewhere else..

Here are the top nine comments made by NBC sports commentators so far during the Summer Olympics that they would like to take back:

1. Weightlifting commentator: 'This is Gregorieva from Bulgaria. I saw her snatch this morning during her warm up and it was amazing.'


2. Dressage commentator: 'This is really a lovely horse and I speak from personal experience since I once mounted her mother.'


3. Paul Hamm, Gymnast: 'I owe a lot to my parents, especially my mother and father.'


4. Boxing Analyst: 'Sure there have been injuries, and even some deaths in boxing, but none of them really that serious.'




5. Softball announcer: 'If history repeats itself, I should think we can expect the same thing again.'




6. Basketball analyst: 'He dribbles a lot and the opposition doesn't like it. In fact you can see it all over their faces.'




7. At the rowing medal ceremony: 'Ah, isn't that nice, the wife of the IOC president is hugging the cox of the British crew.'




8. Soccer commentator: 'Julian Dicks is everywhere. It's like they've got eleven Dicks on the field.'




9. Tennis commentator: 'One of the reasons Andy is playing so well is that, before the final round, his wife takes out his balls and kisses them... Oh my God, what have I just said?'
