didn’t the goblet of fire cover this

because how else would Ireland win but krum catch the snitch

actually in prisoner of Azkaban, didn’t Gryffindor need a certain amount of points to proceed to the finals, and that’s why Oliver Wood told Harry to wait until they had scored a certain amount of points before he caught the snitch?

Catching the snitch ends the game and is worth the most points, but it doesn’t guarantee a win. Just like tumblr user samuel-vimes said, Krum caught the snitch at the World Cup Finals, but Ireland still won in the end because they still had more points.

Also the way the ranking system works in the international quidditch league, and I assume at Hogwarts, according to JK Rowlings new reveal, is that teams are awarded a certain amount of points based on the amount of points a team wins by and thats how they are ranked against each other. Rowling said that a win by 150 points = 5 points, 100 points = 3 points, 50 points = 1 point, and a winner of a tie is whoever caught the snitch the quickest. So theoretically a team that only catches the snitch but wins by a margin of less than 50 points is awarded no points and might as well of not caught thats why Wood told Harry to wait until they were up a certain number of points in order to increase their overall ranking and win the cup.

And gosh, a good chunk of you people claim to hate sports.

We do hate sports. All the ones that don’t involve flying broomsticks and slightly murderous balls that try to knock you off them.

THIS is exactly why I get so heated about these boys. These girls who aren’t even old enough to understand the damage these boys can cause are just blindly following their every word. These boys are role models. They are celebrities, and they need to learn that they affect a lot of people. It doesn’t matter if they were “just kidding”. The words they are saying are still teaching pre - teen and early teenage girls that homophobic and racist tendencies are okay. The fact that this boy can say whatever he wants because he is “cuddly baby cam” is what’s sick, not the people calling him out for his ignorance and blatant disrespect for the role model status he has been given.

I keep seeing comments posted as “So many fathers are like this” and “Omg tons of people say this stop targeting him”. NO. First of all, just because other people are saying it, that doesn’t make it okay. Second of all, THEY. ARE. NOT. JUST. NORMAL. PEOPLE. They are celebrities. What they say doesn’t just affect one or two people. It affects millions. Their ignorance is ruining a generation and I will not fucking stand for it.
