    I don't believe it was defensible.

    Now we must fight to the death.

    Yes.

    And it's NEVER (or SHOULD NEVER be) just like two goats running at each other.

    What I love most about the game is that it is the most cerebral of all the major sports, that strategy is just as important as physical ability. However, we must remember that it is still a sport and that pure physical ability is the main driver of who wins and who loses.

    The most advanced and brilliant strategy is useless on it's own. It requires the two goats to run at each other to have any meaning. And in the end, the goats' ability to run at each other will always be what determines the winner, not the strategy.

    Yes. Let's not start messing around with goats. Look where that has gotten the Cubs.
    Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!

    RZ has its own resident (old) goat.

    Old is a state of mind and old guys know that the game changes but competing Mano /Mano is a main driver in any contest. Strategy comes after Testistaron
