Football Free Zone
« on: June 11, 2012, 05:46:50 PM »

I have heard of old sailors walking inland with an anchor
and settling in the first place that someone asks
Whats that?
Is there anywhere I can do that carrying a football?

"When two tribes go to war, a point is all that you can score" (certainly in England's case {-)).
Football doesn't look much like a game any more. It seems just to be an excuse to get blind drunk and then shout insults at a group of foreigners in the middle of a grass field on the basis that they're not your foreigners while some overpaid moron shouts himself hoarse over the TV during the proceedings and a bunch of decrepits then try to turn what they've just watched into a science.
I'd sooner thumb through a book of carpet samples.

I have played both football and rugby and while enjoying rugby (if you can at full back!!) I always found football the more skillful sport.
Yes the players are overpaid, but for me the modern rules for rugby took a lot away from it.
I just don't get the either rugby or football, I can appreciate both (and cricket) and for me football will always be the far more exciting skillful game.

In saying that I will always support England even in tiddlywinks.

What spoils football for me are all the idiots that dive on the floor rolling around as though they have
just been shot,( at the slightest physical contact).
Then after wasting everyone's time jump to their feet and and continue in the game.
How some of them act they should be awarded a li-low for the time they spend lying down.
They really,really, really aggravate me.

Wonder if it's true that when the England team got off the plane and began to enter the airport, that the pilot offered to wait outside for them ? %%

I'm not into football but I do like watching it with friends that get so emotionally involved with a team. It's like having a roller-coaster in the living room!

Actually I did see a bit of the first match Greece v Poland. I think it was the Polish goalkeeper was sent of for foul or handball or something. A player had to go off and substitute goalie came on and he saved a penally with his first touch of the ball! What a Hero!
