I know correlation isn’t causation, but it is really funny to me that Sauber’s ability to do timely pit stops cratered the moment they embraced a crypto-gambling title sponsor

Japanese Grand Prix talking points: Verstappen returns to winning ways as Perez solidifies grip on Red Bull seat

Can’t argue with that. As an NHL fan who’s had to sit through players successfully whining their way out of Pride night, I also respect that Jeremy’s taking this on the chin and accepting responsibility, rather than trying to make out like he’s some victim of woke cancel culture or whatever. Hopefully everyone involved takes the right lessons from this, and the culture surrounding the game continues to improve as a result.

'Totally unacceptable': AFL bans Port star for 'unprompted and highly offensive' homophobic slur

I’d also imagine Clarkson doing it in a preseason game gave the AFL a reason to believe they could slap him with a fine and let it blow over. If he slips up and does it again, though, they’ll absolutely need to drop the hammer

Great piece! Always interesting to learn these chapters of ancient sports lore, especially when they parallel current events in some way

Barefoot players, a game at the MCG and 'kisses' from the sunshine: Indian football's 1938 Australian tour

Yeah, I think the sheer size of the continent plus the way slots are distributed goes a long way to explain the wacky format we’ve got. We’ll see if Sydney FC gets a simpler route when they play in the ACL2 next year
