Football!!! Or.. .. .. soccer... What is that anyway? Which brilliant North American thought of renaming a sport which original titel perfectly described the two key ellements of the sport; It's played with your feet using a ball, into soccer? To top it off, the sport that is currently known as Football in North America is not played with your feet nor is it played using a ball! A ball is a round objekt whilst the shape of the objekt used in American football is rather that of an elips.
Sorry.. just had to get that out of my system.. been a constant burden. :lol:

No dont get over it!
To take something as beautiful as our FOOTBALL and give it a whole different name (soccer) is actually stamp on our culture, a spit in the eye on our whole way of living.
And whats the deal with your american "football"?!?!
For F**K sake, you use your hands!!!!!!

About 25 feet snorkeling and it depends of where you are fishing, In PE 50 feet is a good depth but in NS the water is much deeper off the coast...I have fished there from 80 to a 120 feet of water.

I couldn't agree more on soccer, it's a great game for kids and adult recreational. But once you get to the Pro's it turns into a pussy game.

For me it’s easier to say what I don’t watch and that's soccer and men’s figure skating, baseball’s right up there but I do watch it a bit during the world series.

Finally someone who appreciate pure brilliance... THANK you Kaetz...

And yes, handball, which is one of our most beloved sports here in sweden, is something completely different. To bad that all guys who play handball here in my hometown is a little bit (how should i say this) "under the weather"...

But then to come back to the subject that is ment to be debated:
My favourite sport is Polo... yes the one when you ride on horses, not the one in water... Beautiful sport.
And most important of all: ITS EXPENSIVE SO WE DONT HAVE PUT UP WITH STUPID WANNABES THAT REALLY SHOULD BE "SOCCERPLAYERS"!

Its obvoius that you have not watched REAL "soccer". Perhaps its a sissy sport where you come from but the game, when its played like it should be played, is hard, tough and legbreaking. EVEN when the pro's play.
Put in a few fights and border around the field and maybe i would think that its as exciting to watch as hockey.

ROTFL ROTFL

I really, really hate soccer... The players are overpaid, spoiled bratts, with nothing else on their hands than running on some field with a ball :wink:

The fans are even worse. They ruin every city where they are guests. Especially when they have lost.Feyenoord was kicked out of the UEFA-cup here in Europe, because their fans had been fighting :P They SUCK!
