Hey! we haven't even started qualifying for the world cup yet! Yesterday's match was for the euros- which tbh, I've never really liked. Mad Pretty sure that when we start for that, we are going to be so amazingly great, maybe even win a few games. Tend? The England and Wales cricket team ran by the England and Wales Cricket Board beat you all the time now in cricket! 2005, the last one...need I go on?


So yeah!

If we don't let England and Wales win occasionally, what's the point of there being a game at all? Rolling Eyes Mind you, if everyone played Aussie Rules, it wouldn't matter if we won everything, because the game itself brings joy to all. If Aussie Rules was the World Game, then the World Game would be worth watching. Very Happy

Wondering how long I can justify staying up to watch the text updates of the Murray/Nadal semi final. (Why oh why does everything I want to watch end up on sky sports?)Murray talking himself into a negative frame of mind at the mo! Mind Djokovic went 2 sets down before seeing Feds off!

I'd prefer sword fights to the death - otherwise individual sports don't interest me. {{{{{Umm... is that peppermint you're wearing, Kafria?}}}}

Is that a movie you're watching, Eldo? Shouldn't Cowboys be fighting Indians? And Ravens are something in an Edgar Alan Poe horror movie? And Steelers are Americans who steal every other countries resources - but it would be a movie made in England or France, because no American film maker would admit it? Why is this on the Sporting Thread, btw?

What, Odo? Gridiron?

Okay, why is this on the Sporting Thread. Isn't it just a bunch of guys in helmets and other armor bumping into each other? How is that a sport? At least in Australia the guys bump bareback* and all that body touching and crunching could be deemed a sport of sorts...
(Go Melbourne Storm!!!!)

I don't thnk I'll ever get this. Which team do you support Lorient?! The first result seems to upset you. You seem happy for the Packers and the 49ers?
How does this so called sport work? How are you meant to know who to hate and villify? Evil or Very Mad This is why its not a proper sport you know.

Well BYU and Utah are the two teams that I grew up closest to, so I have always liked them, except when they play eachother, then I go for BYU. But they are only college teams.
The 49ers are my all time favorite pro team because my family likes them so I grew up liking them. I like the Packers because I lived only an hour away from Green Bsy for 3 years. Like BYU though, I will root for the Niners when they play the Pack.

Usually, as with anywhere else, Most people will like the team their family likes or the one closest to them. Like Eldo likes Baltimore and he's from Maryland. Other times if you are from a place like Utah, which has no NFL teams, people just choose a team, sometimes it's the closest, other times its just sone random team. A lot of people choose the teams that do the best, which I think is stupid. People also tend to have multiple teams they like.

Most teams have their rivals, Baltimore and Pittsburgh, 49ers and Cowboys, Packers and Vikings/Bears. The rival of your team is usually the one you can't stand. Other times a team might do something against your team that makes you dislike them. For example: The New York Giants beat the Packers a few years ago and prevented them from getting into the Super Bowl, as a consequence, I will forever hate the Giants. Other times you just may not like a team's players or coach. There are many Packer fans who hated the Jets because they had Brett Favre on their team. A lot of people hate the New England Patriots because their coach cheated a few years ago.

Was that the coach that tripped the guy up as he ran past? 'Cause thats the most entertaing bit of American Football Ive ever seen! Very Happy

In real football you tend to support one team and hate all the others and have at least one rival team you really, really hate (usually from the same city- so in Scotland thats Rangers/Celtic- Glasgow teams- these are known as derby matches In England you'd get say Man Utd and Man City). The idea of supporting any other team for any other reason is just not football. Its much more tribal than that.

No, the coach I was referring to had people go out and video tape other teams while they practiced, so that he would know exactly how their gameplan would go. His team almost went undefeated that year, beating everyone they faced except for the New York Giants in the Super Bowl.

But your right, that other coach was pretty hilarious! Laughing

The only city in the U.S. with two pro teams that I can think of offhand is New York City, which has both the Giants and the Jets (going back to the days when there two pro leagues; they both wanted a foot in the door of NYC). I don't know how much of a rivarly they have, though. In Maryland, there is something of a rivalry between the Baltimore Ravens and the Washington (D.C.) Redskins because in the '80s and '90s after the Colts left and when Baltimore didn't have a team, the Redskins tried to co-opt Baltimore and even moved their stadium across the border into Maryland. Evil or Very Mad Then the Ravens abandoned Cleveland and came to Baltimore so us Baltimorons have a team to root for again. Very Happy Southern Maryland, in the area around D.C., is still heavily Redskins territory, and fans of both teams don't tend to appreciate the other.

Of course, the mother of all American football rivalries has to be (with all due respect to Bears/Packers) the Cowboys/Redskins rivalry. They're in the same division, NFC East, and to be honest all of the teams in that division hate each other, but the Cowboys and Redskins have been going at it for over 50 years. At one point the Cowboys bought the rights to the Redskins fight song so that the Redskins couldn't play it at games. Laughing Both teams pretty much suck lately, though, so there's not much for either side to gloat about. pale

Derby games in Scotland end to be vicous affairs where players leave the boot in, tempers fray and the atmosphere is unbearably tense and viterolic. And of course the 'Old Firm' derby match of Rangers v Celtic is the oldest in the world and particulary tense.

I couldn't remember which team you supported, but then I saw the Rangers start mobbing the ref in a fit of crabbit at 5:50 in the video, and I knew that they had to be yours. Laughing
