last time they had it on in the hall here
finally, a use for our digital signage system!
Football is the game of the gods
Cricket is brilliant
Rugby is the mans version of american football (admitedly i don't know the rules for either but i still pay divided attention towards the 6 nations, though i support wales )
tennis is brilliant
all other sports pretty much suck balls!
I don't mind others enjoying it - I downright encourage it, but are carhorns, foghorns, and screaming at the tops of their voices outside my house really necessary?
If it's any help I'm grouchy about Christmas too.
None whatsoever, and I've never understood this. Equally though I've not yet been made aware of a case where this has really happened. That could be because I've mostly cut myself off in order to ignore the world cup though.As for the petty minded individuals who are going running off to their local councils at the first sight of an England flag, lighten up, what harm is it doing you?
I agree entirely that they are overpaid, and that nurses etc 'deserve' to be paid more (doctors DO NOT earn a pittance, £24k starting salary minimum and more with shift allowance BEFORE you have even qualified is not a pittance...its double my wage), but 'deserve' doesn't come into it in a capitalist system. They are paid so much because the sport generates that much income, like it or not it is one of the most popular sports on the planet (the most?? don't know the stats), with millions of viewers week in week out. Most footballers are pampered princesses, with no concept of how the real world works, or how normal people live. Maybe there should be salary caps etc, but the money would then just go to the clubs and their owners who would do what with it?? Give it to all the nurses??
Basically, I love football. It hasn't always been this way, I went through a period in my teens of hating it (just because it was popular, and I was a skateboarder and we were supposed to be anti pop stuff), but I got over that. Now I just appreciate it for the beauty of the skill involved, and the passion of those that follow it.
Having said all this I'm not too fussed about the world cup, I find it tends to be people who support teams that aren't in the premiership that go mad for the world cup, as its their chance to support a team that are half decent.
Wow, I cant believe how offensive you lot become when it suits you!
In one thread its "anyone with an England flag on your car has a small penis"
On this thread its "watching football makes you gay"
And as for the "they get paid millions for kicking a bag of air" rubbish... Actors, Boxers, Golfers and everyone in between get paid a small fortune for being hit/hitting a small ball with a stick/reading lines from a TV and I never hear a bad word said about them!
Let us football fans enjoy our occasion and when your chosen sport or hobby is next televised I will comment on how small your penis is or how your sexual orientation has something to do with the fact that you can name every big brother contestant ever and im sure you will get the idea!!
What's football ?
And what's Edugeek?
And who are you?
And who am I?
Who said that ?
