To reiterate the exercise point: people don`t watch sports with the intent of getting in shape. Exercising and watching TV are two separately understood entities, and most people (clearly not wateva_x) realize this.
As for it NOT being physically taxing- are you kidding me? Running up and down a field for hours is extremely tiring and requires a great deal of endurance. Most of the time, the players don`t "go on the floor crying" because they`re actually hurt- they are trying to get a call. I don`t necessarily condone it, but it`s a result of the players being competitive, not total pansies.
Even if they WERE all pansies, it wouldn`t negate the fact that they are skilled athletes. Just because rugby players are physically tougher doesn`t validate their sport as the king of all sports. Get a clue
oh and as for that- no, i dont think im right. or wrong. right and wrong is only determined by personal taste. but i seem to be `wrong` to everyone else and `right` to myself.so no one can really be right. the only thing i cn think of currently that is not determined by personal preference is scientific, proven fact. because of course, majority vote does not create fact.
dude, ive been trying to make that point for ages. well put. *applauds*
AKappy-i was actually stating MY opinion that its a useless sport in the way that if your watching it, you arent playing it, and if you arent playing it, you arents getting fitter. making WATCHING the thing useless. if more people played it, i would have no problem with it.oh and for the record, i AM a total opinionated bitch. thats not going to change anytime soon.
cue people still trying to make me look worse.
How? they run around for 90 minutes they get slightly touched by an opponent and they go on the floor crying, go adn watch some rugby videos and tell me that football is still the more physically vexing sport
P.S. I`m not a fan of football (soccer), but I`m not going to consequently say it is a useless sport. Entertainment is important.
i dont hate all sports. just the clearly overrated ones.oh, and i hate about 95% of men. in shorts or not.as for the barbie picture, i find it funny because barbie itself is a stereotype, but thats off topic."How does seeing men become physically fit make someone sit on their arse?"well, if your sitting watching men become fit, then you are probably not doing any excercise."Do you understand how to draw a foul? Clearly not" i do understand when someone is exaggerating an injury. sure, people HAVE been injured playing football, but its the whiny ones that really get to me."you seem a bit of a stay-at-home-i-can`t-do-anything-that`s-physically-demanding person."i would rather be down at my local gymnasium, practicing walkovers. but i injured my legs, and cant go."maybe 1/2(guessing, give me a break) of the population enjoys sports, regardless of what it may be.&quo
"Go play rugby, you wussies.""I think they should go and get real jobs."You clearly hate sports, and men in shorts."...Payed to run around and kick a ball into the net."Um, rugby is getting payed to run around lateraling the ball into the goal line. I see a resembelence."...hurt..Exgaggerating.." Do you understand how to draw a foul? Clearly not."Why did he do it anyway?"Because if he let it hit the ground the other player would have gotten the ball. I doubt he did it intentionally, just trying to get it near the net for his team.Deaf_woman, Post the Zidane headbutt and i`ll give you more credit.
Notice how most of the people dissing are women or american ;)
out where? on a football field? why in hell would i be at a football field anyway. footballs for pansies.
as for the reject that called me a tard, i have no mental handicaps what-so-ever. therefore in all logic, i am not mentally retarded.
my definition of a real job? physician, scientist, therapist, judge, something that benefits society in someway. god, these footballers could be sports teachers for all i care.Isobar, Well said. also i dont think `soccer` is the msot physically demanding sport. gymnastics, shotokan karate, etc, all carry a higher risk than `soccer` of injury and possible paralysis.i respect them for being in top physical form, but being extremely fit is nothing when all it does is encourage people to sit on their ever expanding arses to watch them.oh and to the person that doesnt like my posts, dont like em, dont read em!
If that was too hard for you to muscle through.. here, I dumbed it down for you:"lol ur dum go kil urslf"
You are truly the definition of an idiot. You wouldn`t last 10 seconds out there.
What`s your definition of a real job? Doing something earning alot less money, and something alot less entertaining for everyone including them, maybe doing something they are alot less passionate about?
Before you speak of people with "strawberry custard" for brains, please, look at your own dribble that you just made all of us painstakingly read through,and maybe, just maybe, don`t post it at all.
If that was too hard for you to muscle through.. here, I dumbed it down for you:&qu
Don`t forget us Australians too! :D
zidane and materazzi
best moment in football*soccer for all us americans*
Gotta love a successful overhead kick.
duh, i already knew that. as for respecting these people, i think they should go and get real jobs. the kids in my school, and my friends schools, and in every school i know, that want to be pro footballers are always the ones with brains like strawberry custard.pro footballers need to go get real jobs.pardon my distaste for custard brained halfwits running round a field like pansies.
just look at pet rocks and paris hilton.
Precisely how useful something is is definitely not proportional to how popular said something is. With that said, how are sports in general *not* useless? I happen to think football (get it right, Americans) is the most entertaining and physically vexing sport out there, but in the grand scheme of things it is useless, as are all sports.
"...with people paid too much to run around and kick a ball into a net..."
It takes a lot of energy and physical prowess to run around on that field. You should respect that even if you can`t appreciate it.
One more thing: there is no luck, there is only... physics.
umm cos thats what your meant to do in football, score goals.
and how is it a useless sport? i mean its like the most popular sport there is.
that was drating amazing.
and then timbaland has to ruin everything like he does.oh well. he must not have been from Italy because he`d be to scared to do that--wouldn`t wanna mess up his hair.
am i right? am i right? am i? cos I dunno the stereotypes..
That was damn lucky. It nearly hit the post, goalkeeper almost caught it, someone else could have been in the way, etc etc.
Once-in-a-career indeed. Though I`ve seen a few good bicycle kicks in my lifetime (not this good though).
I watched it live...My jaw fell off xD
