    This video came from the comment section of one of the first episodes we did. So, thanks to all of you who have enjoyed this series. Think of it like the holiday present you didn't totally want but are fine with.

      I don’t really watch many sports other than cycling (which has plenty of weird stories), but I’ve really been enjoying this series.

      However, I think the best thing about this series is that you don’t pretend you know everything. You have no problem with saying that a fan told you about something and then you made a video about it.

      Grenada is pronounced (gruh-NEIGH-duh) not (greh-NAH-dah). We are not a Spanish country therefore won't have a Spanish name.

      Genius! The FIFA World Cup should expand to 64 teams with 16 round robin groups which leaves 32 teams with an extra round of knockout stages. CONCACAF needs to have a guaranteed World Cup qualifying slot to a Caribbean island nation. 👍

        This is why CONCACAF can't have nice things.

              Barbados woulda been wayyyyyy smarter to play it off to pretend to still play but let Grenada score a goal against them to tie it up — not score their own goal for them and tip them off. I mean it worked out for them but still.

                      The problem with Grenada scoring an own goal would be that once they score that goal, Barbados would have the ball at the next kick off and be able to tie it easily with their second own goal. If they were to score though against Barbados, Barbados wouldn’t be able to tie it. So of course they would choose to keep their dignity and respect the game and try to score against Barbados.

                          Weird rules? More like weird video. Two dudes in a black room sitting around a black table talking about soccer, one of them acting like he's never heard the story before. Just so cringe mate.

                              Cool video, but you forget to mention that the organisers of this tournament included a rule that all matches had to end up with a winner (draws were not allowed even at the group stage). This rule is very unusual and it allowed for these shenanigans to go down - with standard FIFA rules this game would've just ended up in a tie with no over time. Keep making videos like this, though!

                                Awesome video guys! What a farce that would have been! Also a little side note, not that it matters a great deal but Grenada is pronounced as "Gre-nay-da" not "Gre-naa-da"

                                  How does Grenada get eliminated? Their GD was +2, -2 it would be 0. Puerto Rico still has -1 GD, making them the last.

                                  Edit: just realized that although it's group stage, it was a 1 advance, 2 go home. That's even dumber than the whole situation these teams were in bc of a "fun rule", but oh well.

                                                  You know, Grenada could have tried to score on Barbados in the last 3 minutes, or just tried to win in the overtime. And Barbados should have waited until stoppage time to kick in an own goal.

In such a case, (like the days of 5 on 5 overtime regular season hockey) there's usually not a ton of incentive to open things up & risk the other team taking advantage. A win these days is worth 3 pts, vs only 1 for a draw, so there's o need to skew the goal diff to get people to try for the extra reward.
