  • $\begingroup$ Eh, does this require extensive knowledge of some particular sport? And is it a universally played sport? Or is it played only in some specific countries? $\endgroup$ – Sid Jul 21 '17 at 19:34
  • $\begingroup$ Not extensive really :). For the most part, someone can figure out the answers as these people are well known. $\endgroup$ – Riddle Me This Jul 21 '17 at 19:37

    $\begingroup$ @BrownEyedNinja personally I'm not 100% sure this is a puzzle, and people in chat seem to agree. I only usually upvote high quality puzzles, and no offense, and this is understandable and common as this is your first puzzle, but I'm afraid I don't think it is high quality... don't give up though! Take a look at some other puzzles, and see if you can make some better ones! :) $\endgroup$ – Beastly Gerbil Jul 21 '17 at 19:54
