X which took place at the Staples center in early November 2019 and was promoted by Eddie Hearn. X had originally been deemed as a joke and an insult to the sport by fans and professionals alike however later a number of professionals within the sport were more receptive to the event as they believed that it would help promote the sport among a ‘young teenage’ audience.

There were a fair share of records set during the game, however a part of the response to them was negative, claiming that it showed the winning team’s disrespect and that they violated the sporting spirit. One of the players responded: “Whenever you have that mindset, it’s not good. You never want to beat up on a team that bad. But for us, the goals matter. In this tournament, it’s important. So we just have to keep that throttle down.”

This was until there were approached by a X who was quite a peculiar character, the Arrows were promised an investment of 125 Million dollars in return for running the X’s brand T-minus on car.

The season went on to be a failure for them as they finished with a total of 1 point.
  8. 8. P. X? Y? Admitted to what? X was seen as the poster boy for his sport, perhaps being on the best to be in that sport. However his legacy is not remembered by any of his achievements, rather it’s remembered because of an interview with Y, and a non-for- profit organisation.

There was some relief though, as it was confirmed that the new team would dawn the iconic colours of team Y on their jerseys.
  11. 11. P.ID X and Y who have given us some of the most incredible boxing matches of the 21st century. “Yeah, I was out for a few seconds. That’s what we are taught as kids, as boxers.

  45. 45. Q2. What is X? Sport in Question? More than being just about sports, X is often looked upon as a cultural event. A testimony to that is the manner in which the event is broadcasted - the focus is not just sport, and there’s a massive build up to the event as well. The typical game in the sport in question does not have a lot of actual time in action, and it has more than half of the broadcast being replay clips, or clips of players “generally milling about”

The rules of XY are quite generic, with the exact gameplay depending on who plays it, and where. Possible theories for the name include - comparing it with Y since it uses more or less similar equipment, or as a cruel joke on both the game XY, and the X - showing that it is substandard somehow.

  54. 54. Q5. Describe what happened. This is Lewis Hamilton, donning on a shirt that says “Arrest the Cops who killed Breonna Taylor” during his win at Mugello in 2020. This was investigated by the FIA, as to whether or not a driver should be allowed to use their platform to further “political” messages. This is very reminiscent of something that happened 52 years ago, in a similar event in a completely different sport. The actors involved in that incident were not as lucky as Hamilton, who received major backlash, and even a secondary sportsperson involved in this was basically disowned by his nation’s regulating body for further competitions.

  57. 57. Q6. What did X achieve? In a certain competition in 2002, X was in a fairly comfortable position after his heats, qualifying for further rounds with quite a margin. He finished 3rd in the quarter finals, but was promoted to the semi final, as one of the leaders was penalised for obstructing the path of another skater. Having made it that far, X’s official race strategy was to wait out behind, and hope for similar strokes of luck, since he was unable to match the pace of his competitors.

  59. 59. Australia’s First Winter Olympic Gold - Steven Bradbury.
  60. 60. Q7. What rule? What is X? Michael Schumacher and Ferrari enjoyed a comfortable period of dominance in the world of F1 between the years of 2000 and 2004. While no one doubts the dominance and pace that Schumacher had with the Ferrari, officials and fans alike were partly convinced that it was also due to a certain rule in the game, which allowed Ferrari to gain tactical advantage. This rule was subsequently banned from the 2005 F1 season, and it saw cars using a certain brand of X dominate over the other brand. Ferrari struggled to maintain their dominance, and lost to Renault's Fernando Alonso in the Driver's Championship. A ban which if implemented today would essentially render one of the sport's more interesting aspects useless

  63. 63. Q8. What is this feat? Sir Vivian Richard and Ellyse Perry are the only two cricketers to achieve a certain feat. Given the short list of people, it's fairly obvious that the feat is quite unique, and has been beyond the reach of a lot of cricketers.

  66. 66. Q9. ID X, Y, Z. The sports X and Y are often compared to each other, even though they are played by more or less a mutually exclusive set of teams. This comparison is possible because of the similar systems they have for scoring, and a few other rules. On closer inspection, this comparison makes even more sense since they have a share history and origin. Both these games descend from a common game, which had a mixture of these rules, and in fact this common game was formed as a split from Z, after Z formalised the rules of the game Z led to some teams leaving in protest because important aspects of the game would be rendered null and void, these new rules would make Z a little more literal. The common game was brought to North America by colonialists. In fact, before both theses sports X and Y split, their teams used to play together, negotiating on the rules before the game started

The marketing for their product was based around promoting itself through their student brand managers in universities, where they were willing to spend insane amounts of money just to push more of their product into people’s hands. They also closely associated themselves with a dangerous and extreme image, which has worked out great for them. Apart from just being a logo associated to an event, they take a more active approach towards them, which experts suggests leads fans to feel a deeper connection with their products.

This was investigated by the FIA, as to whether or not a driver should be allowed to use their platform to further “political” messages. This is very reminiscent of something that happened 52 years ago, in a similar event in a completely different sport. The actors involved in that incident were not as lucky as Hamilton, who received major backlash, and even a secondary sportsperson involved in this was basically disowned by his nation’s regulating body for further competitions.

  57. 57. Q6. What did X achieve? In a certain competition in 2002, X was in a fairly comfortable position after his heats, qualifying for further rounds with quite a margin.

  60. 60. Q7. What rule? What is X? Michael Schumacher and Ferrari enjoyed a comfortable period of dominance in the world of F1 between the years of 2000 and 2004.

This rule was subsequently banned from the 2005 F1 season, and it saw cars using a certain brand of X dominate over the other brand. Ferrari struggled to maintain their dominance, and lost to Renault's Fernando Alonso in the Driver's Championship. A ban which if implemented today would essentially render one of the sport's more interesting aspects useless

  66. 66. Q9. ID X, Y, Z. The sports X and Y are often compared to each other, even though they are played by more or less a mutually exclusive set of teams. This comparison is possible because of the similar systems they have for scoring, and a few other rules. On closer inspection, this comparison makes even more sense since they have a share history and origin. Both these games descend from a common game, which had a mixture of these rules, and in fact this common game was formed as a split from Z, after Z formalised the rules of the game Z led to some teams leaving in protest because important aspects of the game would be rendered null and void, these new rules would make Z a little more literal. The common game was brought to North America by colonialists. In fact, before both theses sports X and Y split, their teams used to play together, negotiating on the rules before the game started
