Just watched the womens hockey gold medal game, it was epic! Definitely deserved more discussion on here but ah well.

And try telling Skippy his gold medal is substandard.

haha how good was it.. epic match and i was visibly shattered when the kiwis equalised at the end. stoked with the win though

That's debatable Neutral

hardly. 20k people or sand, rocks and army troops?

That was sarcasm Smile To be fair though the crowd's have been absolutely shithouse.

The Commonwealth Games should be abolished, they've lost all semblance of relevancy and respect from some of the best athletes that should be competing there.

Yeah i really thought the Kiwis were going to get up in et. Very good win.

The crowds have got better tbf. At the start they were pretty bad but over time more people have rocked up.

Most other Comm Games have all the top athletes don't they?
It's just quite a few dropped out of this one due to the safety concerns.

It's great watching Australia (Canada, UK and NZ to an extent too) smash small nations whose GDP isn't close to the amount the Aus government spends on sport.

Must be great for the athletes coming from these war torn countries, to get smashed by some Australian, then go back to their country that isn't receiving help, but hey at least we applauded their efforts in a sporting competition.

forums arent the easiest place too realise that.

I think the Comm games are a fantastic spectacle. Enjoying every moment of it

I've had Alicia Coutts for a while...

I don't mind them, I haven't been following the Games religiously like I do for the Olympic Games (Winter and Summer) but there's definitely nothing wrong with them and hopefully Glasgow can restore some pride to the Games which have been slightly disappointing in Delhi unfortunately.

Anyone watch the netball gold medal game tonight?
NZ won 66-64 or something in double overtime, was so good. I dont understand netball and I was on the edge of my seat lol.
