Sir Patrick Stewart, I hope you found what you were looking for. Totally taken by surprise at this.

I hope your journey is easier because of what you found, brother.

My God! The reason people entered melee with pikes is because THEY WERE NOT RE-ENACTING! What do you think happened to pikemen who decided to do something besides what they were told? Pikemen are like dudes with sticks... almost unskilled! If you had skills, like sword, armour, musket, why, you were not in the pikemen, were you?

No choice once you got press ganged into the army. Hell, try turning from a modern battlefield and walking away! See what happens!

Listen. Germany full of hurt, ditto for Portugal. This probably is because the players play high level football all year. This is the USA's chance! Remember! Winning the World Cup looks exactly the same as going further than England!

Think it over! What do you call it when a soldier defies orders, for any reason?
 
Insubordination.

When a soldier decides "Well, no, why would I give up the advantage of my spear here? I'll just move back and do something besides what the sergeant told me..."

Desertion.

The generals don't care how you feel, not one bit. They don't care how much sense you think the orders you were given make.

They do care, and very much so, if you decide to ruin discipline in their army by being insubordinate, or dear God, by cowardice.

You will be killed, most certainly, usually on the spot, definitely before the end of the battle.

Armies don't work if the guy with the poleaxe, who's been trained for all of 10 days, gets a say. Otherwise, why be there at all?

(Press gang. That's why you are there.)

You might have almost no chance of living if you follow orders, but once the battle starts, it's the best chance you have. You are given no options.

This is a common misconception. Yes, cowardice and desertion were held in dim regard, but they were not uncommon. Far from it. Retreats usually occured while the vast majority of the losing army was still alive and fighting. 

A retreat, such as Lindy describes, was not just one guy trying to weasel out of service (which yes, would often end in his death) but rather an entire formation collapsing and routing. Generally, a general would not order the deaths of entire formations that routed, that just does not make any kind of practical sense. Death sentences were generally handed out for small groups of deserters, who would usually do so some time before any fighting. 

A routing formation was usually not slaughtered by their own general (unless you're a crazy Russian in WW2).

Robin Van Persie is the anti-Robben. 
Robben dives all the time. He is never hurt when he goes down.
Van Persie rarely dives. He is hurt, even when he is not down.

The most unrealistic thing about this video is Cristano Ronaldo cheering because the guy who replaced him made the penalty.

Skip's point is not that valid, and here's why: Skip makes perfect sense about the Knicks job. What about Golden State? What about the Lakers? How is Kerr being considered for those jobs, when Phil Jackson needs a puppet for the Knicks only? It's convenient to pick one thing that can be refuted. Kerr can have 4 jobs ( Forgot about Utah!) Dude has no resume. To be Phil Jackson's puppet is one reason, for one job. What about the rest? How DID Kerr get so much love?

yes..i thought about Skip's point in Phil wanting to have Kerr as an extension of himself on the bench.....but how do you explain the other franchise???? how does he fit into their system???? my only explanation would be that ' when a coaching guru speaks' the rest of the league listens. im trying to ignore the race call...
