Sadly, I am watching this shit. And when it really falls apart with two of the worst teams BACKUPS playing against each other, I'll probably still have it on.

Of course, it's muted, and I'm listening to the DMB concert I was at on 7/14  Silly

Sorry, I realized that, I just assumed we were going to talk about a real game that the whole world plays not a bunch of fat fairies in their 12 inch thick pads that have to stop every 12 seconds to drink some gatorade and eat some campbells chunky soup.

ROTFL. Shows what you know. Just go up to someone like Ray Lewis, or Daunte Caulpepper, or Priest Holmes, and call them "fat faries", and see if you make it out alive, dude.  Big grin

There are some rotund guys in the NFL, but those "fat faries", can run a 4.6 40, move laterally faster than you can move forward, and when they crush you with a rib-splitting tackle, I doubt you'll think if them as "fat faries" anymore.

Why is American Football actually called "football"? The ball get kicked a few times, but it is mostly carried in one's arms or hands. Now, Football (Soccer), is actually played with ones feet, hence the name. Just something that's always confused me. Anyone care to enlighten me?

Actually the use of the term "Football" has nothing to do with how the ball is moved but the fact that the game is played on foot (as opposed to on horses) and was applied to any game that was played on foot originally.

Sorry, Scooter, try again. Those "12 inch thick" pads as you call them, depending on the hit either deadens some of the impact or in some cases, makes it worse. If it weren't for those pads, guaranteed you'd see a rise in fatalities related to the sport. As for the "fat fairies," I invite you to go up to a guy like Plaxico Burress, a 6'5", 225 pound wide receiver or Freddie Mitchell (6'0", 195 pounds) or Fred Smoot (5'11", 175 pounds) or Ben Roethlisberger (6'4", 241) and call them fat. I'm sure you'd LOVE getting all your meals via a straw for the next month or so after that encounter.

Sorry, Ive only been watching American football for 12 years with a shut eye and had to endure 4 long winters in Packerland while they were in their high.

I love how you guys immediately get pissed off. Before you tell me that defensive and offensive lineman arent fat I want to see them run for a period of 45 minutes, if they ran like that they wouldnt freaking weigh so much.

See a rise in fatalaties? Oh wait you meant to say Rugby.

Why do Americans drive in parkways but park in driveways? This confuses me even more  Silly

If I was the likes of Thierry Henry, Roy Makaay, Adriano or the likes no NFL linesman could even touch that burst of speed.

If I ate so much damned burgers and pasta all my life and my purpose in life was to get fat and then run like madman for a split second im sure I could do it up to a level that would be either on par or close to it with these guys. I am not bashing the wide receivers, quarterbacks, hell even tight ends but the linesman have no talent whatsoever.

The best part is that the rest of the world agrees with me and even America because proper football or 'soccer' is the most played sport (although amateur hehe) in the USA.

Stop getting so P/O off guys, BTW, I cant get enough of how shitty Soldier Field looks like, I want that god damn UFO to go back into space. But I hardly think this will change the situation with the Bears, who again will SUCK, as usual.

Soccer
---

Soccer is an abbreviation for Association Football. The Football Association was formed in London in October 1863 when representatives of eleven clubs and schools met in an attempt to standardize the rules of the game. One of the rules prohibited the carrying of the ball, a rule that would lead to the Rugby-oriented clubs leaving the Association several months later. The name Association Football was coined to distinguish it from Rugby.

By 1889, the abbreviation socca' was in use, and the spelling soccer had made its appearance by 1895.

Is Legia Warszawa a good team?

In Poland yes, but obviously doesnt fare so well as those sheepherders that make up Wisla Krakow in Europe. Actually no one likes Warsaw in Poland, and no one likes Legia Warszawa. Kind of like Chelsea, only glorified idiots from Stamford Bridge like those Russians, too blind to realize that the real glory lies around the bend at Highbury.

The fans are of the finest form though and I can safely bet are in the top 10 of the worst hooligans supporting a football club, I can safely say we regularly get our asses fined so hard by UEFA for causing trouble that Im opening up my paypal account for you and me to bet on how much they will be fined or how many of them will be banned.

BTW, luck of the draw is that Wisla Plock is playing Zurich Grasshoppers on the same date, which means 2x the trouble.

Im not a fan of Polish fans (oxymoron because I am one, and of the worst form  Silly) But to tell you the truth Polish league games are just too damned rough, I wouldnt mind if it was every now and then but freaking fights every weekend across the country is not that fun.

Originally, the highest point total was for drop-kicking the ball through the uprights. As the game evolved, it was found that running the ball into the endzone was more difficult (and exciting). At that time you had to actually put the ball on the ground (as in rugby, I believe?); hence the term touchdown.

Either that or the Americans are dyslexic in a big way, calling their hands "feet" and their feet "hands"

I was watching NFL Yearbook on ESPN on the Cowboys last year, they were talking about all their signings in the off season. I'm really excited this year for them, so long as Bledsoe doesn't blow it like Vinny, Hutchison, Carter etc all did. Bottom line the D is stacked.

Dude, Bledsoe is the most washed up obelisk of a quarterback there has ever been. Give it up. He will make some great throws, and when the clock runs out on the final play, with a chance to win, he'll throw the ball out of bounds.

He just can't think. That ain't gonna cut it. The greatest thing that happened to the Patriots was Mo Lewis collapsing Bledsoe's lung.
