I would assume you`re single because of the statement: "I`m a chick and I find sports plain boring. And because of that I won`t date men who are in to sports."
That shows inflexibility and unwillingness to accept a man who may be interested in something you are not. It`s not limited to sports just because that`s what we`re discussing here. For example, my boyfriend likes car stuff. I don`t. Big effin deal. Just because I find it `plain boring` doesn`t mean that I don`t want to date him because of it. That would be...oh yeah. Stupid.
@flipNhigh: And what team do you support? I bet they suck!
Why would you assume I`m single because I don`t want to date men obsessed with sports? There are lots of great guys out there who aren`t.
I don`t like shopping, soap operas or Twilight. I really hate twilight. So that isn`t an issue.
Maybe you should stop buying into the stereotypes.
My boyfriend isn`t really into sports and I find it rather disappointing. I like me some NFL.
Go Bears :)
And because of that I won`t date men who are in to sports.
Well I`ve played rugby, American Football and soccer
"Seriously try TO Know what you are talking about before you spout off at the mouth your making yourself look stupid."
Good day :)
no, its not what its about, but anyone who has ever played soccer after the age of 12 really experience the violence, and if you played on the high school, college, or semi-pro level, you`d know just how violent the play becomes. its still fun as hell!
I`ve played running back and midfielder for high school, I`d say I got beat up just as much on the soccer pitch as I did on the football field.
lighten up, my scrawny compadres. go to the gym and you too can get girls. :-)
-"According a a recent study at Cambridge, an average of 241,520 people die a year from boredom while watching soccer.-"I love seeing see the look of intensity on the faces of ball-sport "athletes" when they wouldn`t last five minutes in a cage fight with REAL man."-Are you kidding me? Tank Johnson? Albert Haynsworth? They would beat the poo out of ANYONE in the UFC.-"the CFL is better then the NFL"-You`re an idiot.
I`ve been to a cage fighting tournament held in the UK. They`d flown Mike Tyson in to referee one of the matches. From where I was sat it all looked rather homoerotic. One man squirming around underneath another, presumably desperately avoiding being penetrated....
Erm, soccer isn`t supposed to be a violent sport. That`s not what it`s about.
if you want to go the fighting aspect, yeah, we all want to see people beaten to a pulp. grow up dude, fighting was `cool` in high school, especially since these guys are fighting for NO reason.
you obviously have never played any of the "ball" sports in a real competition. all 3 that you named, football, rugby, soccer, are VERY violent while playing. yes, football you`re wearing pads but take a hit while running 5mph and coming to a complete stop by a 300lb wall (linebacker). soccer, go up for a header with another guy or running full speed as he comes in to take the ball. get out and stop watching tv, experience some sports.
The simple truth is that ALL ball sports are pussy sports. The true test of a man can be found inside the mixed martial arts cage (mma cage fighting) as seen in UFC.
I love seeing see the look of intensity on the faces of ball-sport "athletes" when they wouldn`t last five minutes in a cage fight with REAL man.
I respect Rugby and American Football a hell of a lot more than Soccer though. English soccer is one of lamest sports their is. I was going to say effeminate except that there`s some awesome female cage fighters out there.
P.S.- I`m not talking about "Birdman". Birdman kicks ass!
It`s as dumb as comparing a sprinter against a long distance runner. Completely different physical attributes needed.
Which is funny as you`re showing as distinct ignorance of the game of rugby football, which it`s true name is, as many Europeans do about American football. I can personally enjoy all 4 games (soccer, American Football, rugby union and rugby league) without turning it into some "my Dad is bigger then your Dad" arguement.
Now shut up...It`s a dumb dangerous boring game.
Yes, the guy in a jersey and a firefighter helmet is INSANE! Compared to the rest, he`s fairly average for a fan. And the hellraiser guy, only had pendants... maybe he`s an insane Hellraiser fan, with a liking for the Raiders.
Nobody cares what you have against football.
You need to wiki American Football. The name wasn`t stolen, the name evolved...so to speak. American Football was once like rugby, and therefore evolved from it. Rugby itself is a form of football. Therefore, today American Football evolved to what it is now.
Then again, what do I know. I`m just a homo. As for the word homophobe though, it works. Sure the etymology may not be appropos, but the meaning is what matters. Its just mere semantics.
Soccer is mostly run back and forth, kicking the ball and...not much else.
First of all, ask all the soccer players to learn football. You might get some receivers, running backs, etc. Well, that is, unless they scream at the thought of touching the ball. In case they get over that fear, they still have to get used to getting smashed by 180+ pounds or having their legs wrenched out from under them.
Now ask football players to learn soccer. After they get over the initial reaction(something like, `why the hell would I want to play soccer?`) and do some(I use this word a tad loosely) training with ball practice, you`d have some bad ass soccer players. Of course this excludes people like linebackers.
Of course you`ll argue that I`m wrong about that, but it`s my opinion.
Also, ask the players of both sports to fight. Soccer players will get their asses kicked.
And American football is at least fun to watch. Soccer is pretty boring. "Yay! My team won! The score was 1-0! Exciting stuff." Snore...
Which is why most of these soccer players make national teams at 16.....
"RUGBY does what all the other pussies teams cant.
Run around for a reasonable amount of time without a crap load of padding."
Rugby is for pussies. There I said it. Of course they dont need padding when the hits are from three inches away. "HEy guys lets all get in a circle and push for the ball....thats manly right?"
"Oh and soccer is a sport elite athletes, not a bunch fat dudes jumping onto each other and then slap each other on the butt. "
Fat dudes that can bench press 255lbs 40 times and run 4.4 40s, Faster than most soccer players
@ShadowCruz: Thank you, I appreciate it, and i`m glad to have inspired you to create an account.
Run around for a reasonable amount of time without a crap load of padding.
Clearly you have never sat down to watch a full soccer match, for that I pity you. First: American Football is AMERICAN, therefore you know it requires less athleticism than most interational sports. Second: In football you stop every, what?...15 minutes? Soccer is an ongoing sport in which you get ONE break, as opposed to 20 or 30. Third: Ever been slide-tackled? Maybe gone to block a shot and had a shin guard splinter in your face? No? Oh, did I mention you have to do so without a pathetic amount of padding? Well, you do. Clearly, American Football is harmless compared to Soccer. Then again, it`s my own opinion, so you are just as entitled to yours..
Two hints - starts with "rai" and ends with "ders"
Obviously the one piece of Raiders memorabilia he`s wearing >.>
Go Lions win a second game, PLEASE
What you just said is like me laughing at driving on the wrong side of the road in England. Thats crazy! How do they do it? Its different!
Who cares? Football is an American sport. Soccer (yes, football to you Europeans) has broader international appeal for whatever reason. GOOD. America does its own thing - always has, always will.
No but I`ve heard of it, and I didn`t think it had anything to do with sports...
Either way, the point of dressing up as a Raiders fan is to scare the living bejeezus out of the rival fans who come to the Colusieum. It usually works unless they`re 7`2 and 350 pounds.
