Twitter to livestream Lacross

After being outbid by amazon for the Monday night NFL......Twitter picks up another sport to fill the void

Twitter will livestream the Major League Lacrosse Game of the Week during the 2017 season

Twitter will livestream the MLL Game of the Week during the 2017 season, and its slate consists of 15 regular-season games and two postseason clashes.
The livestreams will be available free-of-charge to logged-in and logged-out Twitter users via mll.twitter.com or @MLL_Lacrosse.

Not sure it quite fills the void but between this and the recent Bloomberg deal, shows Twitter are actively trying to change their positioning and drive up revenues.

 In the mean time what are your thoughts on this "Moving under Braking" rule? and how do you think its really going to work?
Seems a bit "open ended" and subject to interpretation to me.....

More exciting is the Pirelli #F1 tyres are 25% bigger this year eg. fronts rising from 245 mm to 305, while the rears increase from 325 to 405. (also diameter is slightly 'taller").

Anyone have some thoughts on how big a difference the tyres are going to make this year (and which tracks it will make the most difference on lap times.

Lastly, sad news for Manor #F1 racing fans at http://www.LiveF1chat.com/fan/Manor

There are some discussions about Chinese backers coming in......so of course there is still a chance they'll be back in 2018.....unfortunately #F1 has always been a rich mans sport and that's unlikely to change anytime soon

Looking forward to seeing you at race time, add me to your buddylist if you want to DM me before then.

Tivo finding Cord Cutters are "cheap"

In other words...."cord shavers" dont want YACC (Yet Another Cable Company).

"However, they want to lower the price that each individual channel would cost. The average price respondents wanted to pay per channel was $1.68/month, if that were to include the designated top 20 channels it would come out to $28.87, a 12.3 percent decrease quarter-over-quarter".

Manor F1 team are officially out of 2017 season

Sad news for Manor #F1 racing fans at http://www.LiveF1chat.com/fan/Manor today.

Manor Formula 1 team rescue hopes end as 2017 FIA entry withdrawn - Autosport has learned that Manor's chief Stephen Fitzpatrick has written to the FIA to notify it officially that his team was withdrawing from the F1 championship.


There's a great article here in Motorsport on why #F1 needs the smaller teams - https://motorsport.clickon.co/2017/02/07/formula-1-will-miss-manor-racing/

Its especially hard on younger drivers like Jordan King "For everybody in my position as a young driver, it becomes a lot harder when the grid shrinks."


There are some discussions about Chinese backers coming in......so of course there is still a chance they'll be back in 2018.....unfortunately #F1 has always been a rich mans sport and that's unlikely to change anytime soon :(

Jigsaw "toxic comments" management


Jigsaw, a technology incubator within Alphabet, says it has developed a new tool for web publishers to identify toxic comments that can undermine a civil exchange of ideas

The irony is those who chose to listen to "half" the conversation will never actually understand they are only hearing "half the truth"
