Posted 10:53am Sunday 24th July 2016

Answer: Extremely. In fact, it could be argued that it is the worst in the world, across all sports and all competitions. It’s so bad I don’t even know where to begin.  First of all, what’s the deal with the conferences? Are there two or are there four? Surely it would be a Read more...
