No comments on this one, but the British hockey commentator got to get a game misconduct on this one.

When are we (and I do mean the stupid USA fuckers, which I'm sadly mostly included with) going to fix the soccer/football thing?!?!?!?

I mean Hockey, Curling, Tennis, Bowling, Baseball, Snooker, Pool, Polo (both forms), Rugby, Lacrosse, Rock-Climbing, Cycling, Cross-Country Running, Track and Field, Gymnastics, are all called the same thing in English speaking regions (and then some more even).

Also when are we going to fix the fact that we (and I do mean the stupid USA fuckers, which I'm sadly mostly included with) going to finally get with the program and switch to celsius and the metric system.

But now I'm going to rib the UK a bit here. It was confusing as FUCK when I was driving there that most speed limits were in MPH yet most signs indicated distances in km. Also, thanks for NOT having any actual indication on your silly little round speed limit signs to functionally indicate what units were to be observed! Awesome!

In conclusion football should obviously be what the rest of the globe defines as such and the USA should change. Soccer should either be used never again for anything or replace the name of "American Football". As alternative names I think concussion-ball, or money-ball would work as well to replace the stupid name of "American Football".

Soccer is gay.
Soccer is boring.
Soccer takes very little skill to play.
Soccer should be called concussion ball.

This is what happens when you have a so-called "constitutional monarchy" instead of a bona fide democratic republic. It's time to let go of the Dark Ages, people!

It is time for the free-thinking Britons who remain to stand up and save their Island!

No, you're gay!

And it takes more skill than hand-egg. All most of the players have to do in hand-egg is be fat and get in the way. Then take a 5 minute rest before the next 10 seconds of activity.

Modern football is a nancy boy's game - you want something like the old fashioned caseball, leather thick and bloody heavy.

Back in the days when footballers wore long shorts.

Hand egg isn't really a valid sport. It's more of a game, like backgammon or checkers, just played with big, fat pieces that happen to be men. Also, it's mostly advertising.

US date format makes perfect sense. It goes in order of bigness of number, because bigness of number is like, impordint or whatever.

So the US has :

American Soccer
American Football.

What would someone with an untrained eye think what is what?

I.Rest.My.Case *snap* *snap* *snap* *snap*

Besides, narcissists much? Turn this thread about "us" :)
