yeah,americans are always special in everything!they think that this is football,even most of play they play with hands,but ok!so they wanted another word for normal football!its same like they call world series for final in MLB or some other sports!how the hell its world,when its only in america?!no matter that this is best league on world in baseball or basketball,you cant call world series,its not world club championship!
and about poker,probably they are new on market and they didnt set up tournaments,maybe they dont how many players would play it!

I agree dule-vu with what you said about the so called world series when it's actually only in America , seems very odd to me

About poker in 365.gr ... When they started opersting in Greece , they offered only sportsbetting , casino , but no poker , although they are part of 365.com , which had/has poker . I created an account then ,forgot details cause I started playing sportsbetting on another site (better odds , with less minimum $$$ per bet choice) . Now I clicked , saw they have brought poker , got lured , and created a new account .

But they offer ONLY CASH GAMES !!!!! , that's crazy . If it was a new pokerroom I would understand it . But the are not !!!! Part of 365.com , which is old poker room !!! They have greek players on their sportsbetting sector , which now is more or less inactive due to sports cancellations . These players are not few . Also they would compete with other players in 365.com pool , they would have the chance to win $$ and generate more rake for 365.gr . I will not deposit if they don't add tournaments , sngs or other games in their lobby ......


Very strange , almost sneaky to me ...

Interesting would be a COVID 20 over a few months and then if the governments do not do the right thing there is the possibility of a universal revolution. Athletes also need their jobs and keep fit through exercises and running. What an ugly situation.

Most important is this crisis to end , asap , everyone to get well and everyone leave this story to be forgotten , the same as with the first SARS virus , hopefully not in two years , not even in one year , but quicker , not that I find it probable with all the news I hear .

I used to see only few old , now i see most of the old , also too many younger or very young people with disinfection protection , very sad . As if I am a stupid for not taking precautions , they behave like we live in chemichal gass region or war time , WW1 battlefield , you feel sometimes that you breath the gass while they are safe , wtf ??

Yesterday night it had cold outside , I wasn't properly dressed , while I was walking I felt pain on my neck , i have to admit it crossed my mind for the first time the possibility to have gotten infected by this virus , despite my attitude towards this virus saga , the ongoing daily drama episodes or exaggerations ....

Watching so many with masks , looking at you as if you are the odd one , for not following the
dressing ''fashion'' . You cannot stay unaffected when everyone around you walks with masks , gloves , when they don't want you to get close to them closer than 2 meters , they want 2 meters distance one from another everywhere .

Basement extreme BDSM kind of psychological warefare , you are invited to join the action , behave accordingly , foreseeably Sad , by governments and their totalitarian regime practise and measures nowadays , by the known and unknown to you persons or relatives , it's really out of your hand to control it in a satisfactory way and stay unaffected , so sad ........... Even in countries with not so many deaths like in Greece (but with far more deaths by the simpier usual every year seasonal virus Blink , ofcoure no comparison at all , with other usual for the last decades causes of deaths )

Better this story end soon , all sport events or casinos or poker events or cultural events can take place someday in the future , this is the least of the problems nowadays , the social madness and exaggeratiomns are worse than the virus itself or anything else ............

Many countries do not have road restrictions and people are moving, but in Romania, Spain, Italy, Germany, United Kingdom the circulation is stopped and a certificate is required in order to leave the house and to go at work or shopping. That means prison at home.

now they want to move every sport and to be played over summer or even later,they just dont want to let that everything finish now and that new season start on september,because lot of money is in game and they want to delay everything as much as they can!but at least one good thing is here,now will be less money in sports and they will not players for 200 millions and so on!smaller clubs will have more chance!

Players well paid don't struggle so much these days because of the postponement of Olympics or the cancellation/postponement of other events . They have enough money , even to stop participating in athletic events for ever and start living like kings .

But for the rest athletes , this is a total catastrophe . ither it's the Olympics or the another World class or mjor continetal or domestic event . States and governments should try to help these people as well , fund them and motivate them to maintain their love for the sports , to keep on exercising and preparing for the events to come , cause this outbreak won't last for ever !!! At least the extreme restrictions will end someday soon I want to believe ...

The less famous or good athletes lose their sponsors , the can't aquire new sponsors due to inactivity , they might have problems maintaining their dody performace and developing their skills , less games in '' their feet or hands '' , they have less motivation to keep on doing what they love most, because there's no reward , help to keep on doing it .

Without games they don't have the chance to win money to pay bills and living expences , then the alternative choice to start a usual , casual job and quit sports FOR EVER , might be taken seriously into consideration . Not improbabble at all !!!!! Without profit , no motivation , with no motivation you will qui sooner or later , or keep on struggling like an idiot for moderate or worse , bottom level/class results and performance , a total lose of time , this applies everywhere in life !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

These days the ability to adapt so as to survive is needed more than ever , in such times you can see how great you are or not according to how much able you are to deal with a major crisis , find the best solutions to maximise protection , profits , secure your future Smile ADAPTATION for athletes , poker players , casinos , workers , normal people , the old ones , everyone and every business !!!!

Good luck and strength for every athlete these challenging days for their survival , as well as to everyone else on the planet Smile

now its big fight about money in every sport,especially how they will pay players and to reduce salaries from them!they already know how much they will lose,so they want to take measures right now!but they also think that athletes will start playing right away,when this corona stop,but ofcourse they will need to train for at least one month before any game!

Believe me , if an athlete lose his physical condition for some months , he might not be able to come back the same as he was , mst probable this to happen , and ofcourse not stronger . Especially if he's not too young like 25 or younger , then things are more and more difficulttt . Ofcourse over 30s they must be doomed if they abandon training f, even for very small period of time .

They need to maintain their physical condition in order to maximise their performance and have the best results . With inactivity , due to lack of events , possible prizes , sponsors , rewards , basic income to keep on doing what they love , or isolation measures , I don't think they could go on training , especially if this crisis lasts for years !!!! I am not optimistic about athletes of the athletics events , like for the world athletics or most Olympics sports/games Sad

We all know the physical condition of the athletes and i said that in another thread or maybe even here. Now the teams start training and probably in two or three weeks we will have football. Others who practice the rest of sports they will do the same. This is the situation.

they are already now in problems and you can imagine what will be situation after few more weeks,when they will not play anything!you can train at home,as some football players do,but this can be same as you do on pitch with other players!so at least one month they will need to train of field and to do same things as they do before start of season,to come in shape that they can play games every few days!10 or 15 days are just not enough!

Train at home ???It's not the same for sure , I cannot say there's even a comparison to training outdoors , in facilities that have everything to be trained completely and have every help or guidance .

I really don't know , an athlete can start training fully again and then start playing witht the same performance , even if he's older than some other athletes ?? Ofcourse , if he has an organised , complete gym at home things are better , but how many have this luxury ?? I don't believe everyone .

Also for competitive sports , they develop their skills by playing against other players , alone , even if they train their body everyday , it's not the same . Especially for older in age athletes Smile

you can imagine if they dont train at all at home,in what shape they would be after month or two!with this they can at least work something,but with nothing they couldnt even start after two months!but no matter what they do,they will need at least month to come in form that they had before this situation!

I saw that there are countries who released a little these laws that kept people in homes. Germany is one of them but there are others who have need someone to pick their fruits and vegetables and they began to bring workers from Eastern Europe there. It's a good start for everything.

At the end of the crisis , most will be with belly fat , fat legs and arms , they might start drnking a lot . The only athletic activity to take part then , would be sumo wrestling , LOL . They might start smoking a lot to forget their trouble situation , then they will be tottaly useless for sports . Players or athletes like CR7 in football or others in other sports couldn't care less if they stopped now their career , they have tones of dollar papers , they could use some of these instead of toilet paper during this crisis . LOL Smile

At the Tokyo Olympics, no results can be canceled at this time but for football it is sad if the championships will be canceled. I read in the newspaper about a player from Liverpool who said he was pleased if the Premier League was canceled. This is very bad for the team.

If a great league like the Premier league , maybe the greatest in the world , gets cancelled finally ,that would be tottaly insane . So many businesses will be affected , money lost . Cannot imagine this to happen , they have to find a way for such or similar to this leagues , sport series or events to be run , even with very few fans . Something is always better than nothing .

The affect on English football it's already disastrous. The premier league and it's teams will probably get through it, amid significant salary cuts for all involved. But the EFL and it's teams are going o have such big challenges that I can't see how exactly they could go back to normal at any state in the near future

leagues and clubs will still earn money,no matter that they will play games without spectators,thats why they want to play games till end of season!ofcourse they will not get money from tickets,but still tv station will pay them for games,but if they close season,they will lose lot of millions!
