You are in a privileged position to say this. Poachers aren't hunters. They need to feed themselves and their families. Rather than killing humans, they choose to hunt animals.

By your logic, you should show zero sympathy to soldiers sent to Iraq and have died there. Since they had no reason to be there. This whole argument stops if you say you have no sympathy for these either and your logic is consistent. Otherwise, you show you have no understanding of African and poverty stricken regions at best.
So they eat Rhino horns and Elephant tusks do they?

Fagner will never stop being a (sad) surprise

Remember when people defended his call up because "c'mon, he's the third option, he's never playing a single minute in the cup, stop bitching!"?

Saying it all comes down to poverty is simply not true. A lot of poachers are feeding into a market they know will bring them money and many aspects of poaching come from what it symbolizes.

Is there desperate families? Sure, but you cannot paint every poacher as being some poor desperate family trying to get by. Not only that but we as humans need to understand how much we are fucking our ecosystem and wildlife by letting greed run it. You might look for a reason to sympathize but when you do all it does is allow for more poaching to take place and destroy animals which in turn fucks over humans too.

Your Iran example is poor because the intention isn't going their to kill and sell Iranians. I also think context would matter on who I sympathize with because some soldiers are piece of shits while others it's tragic.
So soldiers, with guns and fighter jets went in there without the intent to kill human beings? And they accidentally just happened to kill tens of thousands?
What makes the issue different here is something you're never going to acknowledge. Poachers are black and dirt poor africans, so the sympathy is simply not there. But those soldiers were primarily white, have largely the same values and lifestyle, you can relate, so there is sympathy.

Oh yeah, good times XD. Was really expecting to Danilo instead of Fagner because he is much better defensively......... Oh well. Without Casemiro, having to stop Lukaku and Hazard on attack and the precise pass of De Bruyne. That will be a fun game.

Apart from the first half against Mexico, when Fagner was beaten everytime someone went at him, he's been solid on defense.

He's like 1.65m tho..

I'd say Fagner "improving" had more to do with mexico gassing out than him actually doing some good work
I would be calmer if we played with empty space and 10 players than with him

I still remember his brainfarts for corinthians were he just went ham on someone for no reason and got a red

It's like you completely missed the fact I said context matters when it comes to these soldiers. I'm not saying all the soldiers are innocent but you're comparing poaching, something that is killing and causing the extinction of animals which in turn endagers humans as well(funny how you ignore the affect it has on humans?) to a war that had a lot of political issues and soldiers were forced to go there.

If we actually are deflecting this to goal poachers, isn't the goal poacher role effectively dead now?

Since strikers are expected to help out more etc

Poachers do not contribute much to football, which is why I detest them.

I rather have my players scrambled around like my eggs

Their is something beautiful about someone who can just plain put he ball in the back of the net. Doesn't matter how, or how pretty, just scores. And that's all that matters
Did nothing in the 2007 final except score twice. The mark of a truly world class goal-poacher (even if one of them was a lucky deflection).



Not recognized as he should because he was far more than just a poacher, but when he decided to wait and tap, man he tapped it good
I think you said it yourself, his all round game was too good to be labelled a goal poacher.

do you have some contractual obligation to post something neymar related every 10 posts

FIFA knows no bounds
The only contractual obligations I am required to fulfill on this forum are ELEX related. Neymar is just a bottomless treasure trove of ridiculousness.

Fagner is really a WTF selection. None of the left backs can play on the right? Filipe Luís for example or Alex Sandro who was left home?
