    Stupid Football!

    Any other football-haters on here? I detest the sport. They should make it more interesting with guns and swords.

    Me too! It is boring
    The primary I work in has said that that children can come to school with red shirts or hats or England flags when there is a match. I don't disagree that football is popular, but we do have other sports such as Rugby and Cricket that occasionally we are quite good at too.
    Why should football be special

    Not necessarily a hater (yet!) but definitely not a fan. I'm already hacked off with the World Cup and it hasn't even started yet.

    Is anyone else starting to receive questions about watching the England v Slovenia game at 3pm on Wednesday 23rd June in classrooms?

    I can't effing wait for Friday. As a gay TV presenter once 'nearly' said, "bring on the ball!". Will be taking a visit past the heads office later to see if he wants the afternoon England game sorting on the big screen.

    ENG-ER-LAND! ENG-ER-LAND!

    It's all the media hype that gets me. Why does it need 3-4 hours of TV just to broadcast a 90 minute match. Other sports are getting as bad. It's just cheap TV I guess.

    They're talking about ending the school day early here so students and people can get home to watch it - how lame can you get?

    I'm with the football haters - I cannot see the point in a group of grown men kicking a bag of wind around. Then there's the fact that all normal life MUST stop because there's a game on. Oh, and don't even get me started on the inordinate money that they get paid for looking like a prat - anyone else up for recommending that the likes of the firemen and women get paid that amount instead of footballers?

    I've got a load of reading material and films to watch over this daft period. The only thing I'll be watching over the weekend is the F1. Then if it does not rain I'll be in the garden.

    Because rugby is a toffs game and cricket takes a whole day, at the very least....

    you think football is boring, try watching a 3 day cricket match!

    Agreed, the people that are there to save our lives in our times of need such as Doctos, Nurses, Paramedics, Firemen etc get paid pittence when glorified football hooligans with a sense of direction get paid millions to kick as solitare puts it "a bag of wind" about!

    I like 2020 cricket that takes only about 3 hours, has better colour uniforms and is just enough time to go from sober to drunk to bed!
