Ahhhh there will be plenty of these threads. I believe the following sums it up nicely:
Discussions about topics like religion, Microsoft and human rights to name but a few end up the same way on the Internet.Code:Popular or Traditional subject + Internet Discussion = Everyone turning round to say they hate it to claim they aren't sheep or righteous
Haha but what kind of woman would actually want an inflatable husband? I certainly wouldn't, it'd take up too much space on my sofa for starters
This hype happens every 4 years when the world cup comes along, it's just one of those inevitable things, a bit like Xmas. I don't know why people get annoyed about it and start ranting as you know it's coming and that you'll just have to live with it. Personally I'm not a big fan of football, as with all sports I'd much rather be playing the sport than sitting on my butt watching it. Although I don't let all of this hype get to me, if you're into football then good for you, get out there and go for it! If not, just chill out and continue doing whatever it is that you were doing to start with. There's no need to start an argument.

Is it really any suprise that the majority of members on a forum dedicated to IT and geekiness don't like football? or any thing remotley related to sport/outdoor activity for that matter!?!
But on a personal level though I can't get enough of playing or watching football so...
COME ON ENGLAND!!!
I'm loving the fact that we are little more than 24 hours away from the biggest footballing jamboree since 2006!
For all those who dislike football, try the "OFF" button!!! Or have a butchers at CH4 & 5....or even any channel on Sky....Yes, they'll ALL have a bit of a World Cup theme on, but I'm sure that for the ladies amongst you, there will be plenty of coverage of Sex and the City etc etc etc, ad nauseum!!!
Come on England!!!
I think it's obvious that anyone with their head screwed on properly, would like to see critical jobs paid what they're worth. No footballer is worth £200 000 a week, no matter how good they are. BUT, that is the world we live in. That is the world that the free market economy gives us.
Check out the highest rated programs since TV was invented, and in this country you will find that a majority of them will be football related.....England - related......So, as part of the majority, I believe that every 4 years, it is a small sacrifice for the football - haters to make.
I think it's probably time we moved over to a benign dictatorship!
Gotta be the best way.....as long as the dictator is a football lover, and allows us to keep the World Cup on the telly
I agree completely with keeping the World Cup on the telly (not having one myself), but would pass a law requiring all towns to have at least one pub which does not have a television, and has a selection of real ales and whiskey. State-sponsored if necessary.
