PhD student and a lifetime sports enthusiast.

I have tried a large variety of ball sports, and have took training in basketball, football and tennis. Actively participate in a wide variety of sports, on a regular basis, given that the work or injuries don't interfere.

In addition to basketball and football, I play a variety of racket sports such as squash, badminton and table tennis; beach volley, futsal. I also try and follow rugby, american football, handball and track running (sprinters).

comment How does Champions League work?
In my eyes this question is too broad to be answered in a satisfactory manner. It's like asking; "how does NFL work" or "what's that NBA thing really?" You have multiple questions that could and should be asked separately to get factual answers.

comment Has there been any punishment for taunting opponents in a top division football game?
Good catch, this is exactly what I was talking about.. So the goal was allowed in the end?

comment Are you allowed to score a goal off the ground with your head to showboat?
interesting question, I asked a generalised version of this question with respect to what sort of punishment is possible for unsporting behaviour with intent of teasing/taunting/insulting the opponents or the fans

comment Does being good at table-tennis help when playing tennis
Re "different contact point": I am pretty sure that I was told that I should use the center of the racket/paddle in both sports. Or did I misunderstand your point?

comment Do they ever pull the goalie in soccer?
.. or Neuer in practically every game he plays, seriously I think he gets bored in the goal :)

comment Why is Brazil's top football stadium (Maracana) in Rio de Janeiro rather than São Paulo?
Not to dispute this answer, but the capital city does not necessarily mean the largest city or the city with the most fans.. Actually in many countries, the capital might not coincide with the city that has most (successful) clubs, e.g. England (London only recently have title challengers), Italy (Milano and Turin) , Germany (Berlin and Bonn have never really had strong teams), Turkey (biggest teams are from Istanbul)

the fact that a city has more people does not imply that football culture is bigger there, does it?
