    The BBC is just as bad, listen to Chris Sutton and Savage on 5 live, God Sutton is so bitter, he's obsessed by Rodgers

    Brendan will get backing at Leicester at the moment Leicester are ahead of Man City they are matching Liverpool in performances guaranteed top 4 I think anyway why would he go to a struggling Arsenal team all media hype.

    Sky just run stories to aid their betting site. Not trustworthy at all.

    Celtic fan here. If Leicester fans think Brendan saying he’s “building something” or “‘making history” is from the heart, walking away from it all at Celtic should be a red flag for his future clubs

    Sky just want the same 6 teams to dominate each year. Leicester are a breath of fresh air. If Brendans smart he'll stick with yous and build you up to compete with those teams consistently. Hopefully your star players like Maddison feel the same.

    You're absolutely spot on Dave! LCFC are getting fucked by sky consistently. There's some clear agenda from those cunts behind the stories and I'm sick of it. They tweeted about 4 times in two hours about cags and Evans to man city! Done with their shit!

    7:48 'Man utd are no more the force they used to be'..
    Yes unfortunately that's what happens when you sell out to foreign billionaires..and fill your team with multi million pound players from overseas..
    Grass routes is what is lacking in the premiership nowadays.

    I’ll also add , that 9/10 it’s pundits who have 0 football knowledge who criticise managers week in week out until they loose there job , then they all sit there saying they feel sorry for him ludicrous

  19. Skengy Barz

    03.12.2019 at 02:44

    I agree if every club owner had the same love, care and effection the owners have had since coming into Leicester then the premier league would be a lot more of a happy playing field from a fan’s perspective

    I don't understand how 'normal' people, as you call them Dave freely accept the obscene wages that footballers and football managers take home weekly. There's no loyalty because the money is ridiculous. If it was any other form of vocation 'normal' people would be up in arms. The merchandise and ticket prices are ridiculously expensive. Personally I don't understand how 'normal' people can afford to follow football. It's the ultimate con trick, that millions seem to fall for week after week. There's more money sloshing around in football than anything, and the truth is, they give back very very little to communities in return. The gap between the Premiership and the other divisions is ridiculous. Also, I've never understood the value of football managers. There are hundreds of managers performing quite adequately at all sorts of levels across the planet. I think the managers in the Premiership are utterly over rated, what do they do that's so special?? I think 100k a year is more than enough for any manager. Their main skills seem to be deflecting pressure from their over hyped and over paid players, who constantly under perform at International level.

    Rugby, now there's a sport. A proper sport, for 'normal' people.

    Football has become nothing more than the parable of the Emperors new clothes, but no one has shouted that the Emperor is bollock naked and continue to cheer him and make the Emperor richer and more powerful. The Emperor will eventually become the dictator of his land, but the people will continue to follow, with rags on their back, no roofs on their homes, but still claim that the Emperor makes them happy and wealthier.

    I guess that's capitalism Dave, I guess that's consumerism. Whilst people continue to consume, the naked Emperor will laugh back at you.

    Sky is awful now, the kick off is honestly the way to go, real fans telling the truth

  23. Matt C

    03.12.2019 at 02:44

    You’re very salty when it involves Leicester, they are journalists and reporters there whole job is based around finding the truth around a story, I think you need to calm down a bit can tell you’re getting nervous about Brendan leaving, Leicester are a small club and always will be, that’s why managers like Brendan have there eye on the top clubs like arsenal, likewise with your players Maddison, chillwell etc. They won’t be at Leicester for long because you can’t progress, shit club shit fans

    Never have rated Sky Sports News, gets on my nerves mainly with all the adverts they have in between everything.

    03.12.2019 at 02:44

    As a Celtic fan myself I think Brendan was fair enough to leave. He achieved all he could and left us in a great position. Unless he received massive investments from the owners it would be too hard to further us in Europe so he was right to leave. But to see these rumours is crazy. For him to leave a young and promising and potentially title chasing Leicester side for the shipwreck at Arsenal would be ridiculous.

    I’d rather stay at Leicester than get the Arsenal job…. AND I AM AN ARSENAL FAN HAHA

    Not just sky sports, pretty much all of the news outlets these days… Let's hope Leicester get a chance to see how high they can go without silly interruptions

    Also apart from #hughwizzy arsenal fans on YouTube and the internet are poison and a few bad results and they would be on his back to quick I personally gave emery as long as possible but he had no idea of how to play are defense sucks and no one wants to fix it being wenger or all these idiots upstairs!

  32. Ryan Galloway

    03.12.2019 at 02:44

    He left Celtic and walked away from a treble treble to come to Leicester and finished 9th last season so you can see there’s no passion for a club he stays at if arsenal offer 14mil he will leave

  33. John sloss

    03.12.2019 at 02:44

    I wouldn't have sky sports only for football as they are a joke this is why YouTubers like yourself are more honest and real than any presenter on there show not saying they are all bad but roy Keane is an example of a boring man to name drop one lol!

  34. John sloss

    03.12.2019 at 02:44

    Hope we dont take him off yous as in my opinion yous are a bigger club than us especially in the last 5 seasons so Brendan Rodgers is at the right club in my opinion because yous are ran perfectly like we chatted about before and we would just ruin his career at this moment as we are a joke club! Yous deserve better 2nd in the league ahead of city and 8 points behind liverpool I know who I'd rather manage and it ain't us ( Arsenal)

Statue of Unity gets more visitors daily than Statue of Liberty: SSNNL

Published

on

By


The Sardar Sarovar Narmada Nigam Ltd (SSNNL) on Thursday informed that the tourist inflow at the World’s tallest statue on Narmada river – Statue of Unity has outpaced that at the Statue of Liberty in the US.

The daily average tourist footfall at Statue of Unity during November 2019 reached 15,036, where as Statue of Liberty attracts around 10,000 daily visitors on average.

“It is noteworthy that the Statue of Liberty in the US is a 133-year old world famous monument, whereas the Statue of Unity is just 13 months old,” stated a statement from the SSNNL.

The daily average tourist footfall at the Statue of Unity during the first twelve months was 8,653, but this has increased by about 74 per cent in November.

SSNNL, which manages the Narmada dam, was also entrusted with the implementation of the Statue of Unity project.

The 182-meter Sardar Patel’s statue was dedicated to the nation on October 31, 2018. However since then, a lot of tourist attractions and sports activities have been set up to bring in more visitors.

SSNNL in its statement informed that total 30,90,723 tourists have visited Kevadia ( place where the statue is built) till November 30and total income of ₹85.57 crore has been generated from it. The statue costed around ₹2,400 crore.

Peloton bike ad controversy is reminder to think before buying

Published

on

By


A week ago while winding down from Thanksgiving weekend, I turned to my husband shortly after seeing what’s now turned into a firestorm of a TV commercial and quietly said: “Don’t get me a Peloton.”

His quick response: “Here is the good news: It never crossed my mind.” 

The exchange between us seemed so funny that I immediately tweeted it out on Dec. 1 and have since gotten 19 likes. Who knew that a simple exchange between two people who have been together for more than 25 years could be so telling? 

And really, who knew that America would get so worked up over a Peloton commercial? 

Peloton Interactive made big news when its stock dropped 9.12% on Dec. 3 to close at $33.48 a share, down $3.36.  The stock fell 1.55% on Dec. 4 to close at $32.96 a share, down 52 cents. 

The stock appeared to take a hit after social media exploded about the latest lush holiday Peloton ad featuring a gorgeous young woman who tells the story of her harrowing year-long journey to get up at 5 a.m. and ride that exercise bike that her husband gave for Christmas. Spoiler alert: She’s still in great shape. 

More on Peloton: The Internet reacts to Peloton’s ‘unsettling’ holiday ad

Secretly, of course, much of America would love to be as wealthy as the couples in these ads, which show the high-end exercise bike set in a House Envy-worthy home with rich wood floors, lots of open space and art work. No dirty jeans or ratty sweatshirts hang off these bikes. 

You can imagine the ad folks writing some Peloton commercials tongue-in-cheek. The public has been mocking these ads on Twitter for more than a year already.

Now, though, the latest ad hit a real #MeToo nerve, triggering accusations of sexism. 

One woman tweeted: “I think what bothers me about the Peloton ad is the look on that woman’s face throughout the commercial, like she’s apologizing for her very existence on this earth.” 

Yes, it is just a commercial for an overpriced exercise bike. Yes, we’ve seen this nonsense before. Remember, those Carl’s Jr. ads a few years ago that used busty blondes to sell burgers? 

Crossing a line

Even so, the timing for Peloton remains tone-deaf, like an advertising story board pitch presented in a board meeting long before movie producer Harvey Weinstein became synonymous with sexual misconduct, long before Larry Nassar went to prison for the sexual assault of minors, long before Kid Rock’s drunken tirade against Oprah Winfrey at his bar in Nashville went viral, crossed the line and caused a few more people to say enough is enough. 

Face it, Victoria’s Secret has even canceled its slinky holiday runway show this year, months after it was learned that Leslie Wexner, CEO of L Brands, was a close friend of the late convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. 

Somewhere along the line here, you wonder when women will be treated with more respect. 

The Peloton ad — while tame — still leaves you questioning what just happened there.

Did we just watch a commercial for a luxury brand that featured a man who was somehow dictating how a woman should feel about herself? Why does he get to tell her how long she should be able to sleep? Or even suggest how she could work harder to look better?

Really, yet another message that helps to erase the self in self-esteem? 

Merry Christmas. Happy holidays. 

Smart husbands, of course, will stay as far away from this one as possible.

It’s wonderful to be able to be there for your spouse. I am personally spoiled rotten by a husband who frequently drives me a few miles to my nightly exercise classes. Some nights, I might not go if I didn’t have door-to-door service. I’m close to racking up 230 classes in 2019. A record that will make our family Christmas letter. 

Even so, there are limits here. 

There are some things husbands shouldn’t buy

When we first married, I once told my husband to never, ever buy me a vacuum cleaner or blender for a gift — even if it somehow seemed like I wanted one.If taken the wrong way, you could end up paying for years.

The same is true with the Peloton deal. You’ll be paying for it long after the tree hits the curb, one way or another.  

More: Paying for the holidays in six easy payments. Here’s what to consider

To afford a Peloton bike, you’re likely going to need an installment plan.

You could pay $2,245 upfront for the indoor exercise bike that can stream a live gym experience into your home. Or you could pay by the month, like you would for tires or appliances. 

Peloton has a “Ride now, pay over time” plan at 0% APR. No money down. 

The plan enables you to break those payments into 39 months — a bit longer than a three-year car loan — at around $58 a month. The price does not include taxes or accessories. 

The Peloton membership fee will set you back by another $39 a month.

Sexist or not, it’s a whole lot of money. 

Not on many wish lists

One bike is more than most families will spend during the entire holiday season. 

On average, consumers plan to spend $1,048 on holiday gifts this year and other items, according to estimates by the National Retail Federation. The estimate breaks down into $659 for gifts for family and friends, $227 for food and decorations, and $162 for non-gift items for yourself or your family. 

What do people want for the holidays? According to the industry trade group’s research, here’s a breakdown: 

  • 52% of adult consumers want clothes or accessories
  • 35% want books or other media
  • 29% want consumer electronics or accessories
  • 18% want sporting goods or leisure items
  • 24% want decorative items for the house
  • 17% want tools or home improvement items
  • 23% want jewelry
  • 59% want gift cards
  • 21% want beauty products
  • 7% want other items

Many people, of course, do want fitness-related gifts, Lululemon pants, Manduka yoga mats, Bowflex weights, you name it, maybe even soon-to-be-released “Christmas” Nike LeBron 7 sneakers. 

And yes, many will be thrilled to be treated to a luxury exercise experience, such as a Peloton bike — especially if you’ve got an ocean view outside the backroom window. 

Yet it may not be as easy selling four-figure exercise bikes as you might imagine, and maybe that’s playing into the stock selloff, too. 

“Fitness equipment sales will be challenged for Holiday, as consumers are choosing clubs over ownership,” wrote Matt Powell, senior industry adviser for sports at the NPD Group, in a November blog.

He predicts a “challenged holiday season for sports retail.” 

Powell noted, though, that NPD doesn’t measure Direct to Consumer businesses like Peloton.

In general, Powell told me that the target customer for Peloton is an upscale city dweller. And he could see the Peloton bike being given as a gift. 

Even so, he too thought the Peloton ad “seemed tone deaf to me.” 

Beyond buzzwords

Social media experts will quickly tell you that tone deaf doesn’t work in what’s become a “cancel culture.” But really, it’s far more than dwelling on buzzwords here. 

It’s about treating people with respect and building long-term relationships. 

Peloton’s earlier message has been: “On the most basic level, Peloton sells happiness.”

Happiness is good; body shaming, not so much. 

Simply ask this: Would you want your daughter or sister living with that guy in the Peloton ad?
