    I'm not sure which is more irritating, the terribly dull massively overrated game itself, or people calling it 'footie'.

    I gather that the blue team of overpaid mercenary prima donnas beat the 'foreign' team of overpaid mercenary prima donnas. The blue team seemed to be based in london somewhere and have a couple of English players in the team which makes it all good. The foreign team has someone who is foreign but used to be blue and heroic but now is foreign and different foreign and a bit less heroic and with a different haircut and goes around hugging people a lot.

    Is that a reasonable summary of events?

    They also like to kiss each other and prance around like fairies.Intelligent too,i once heard a player count five add five and came up with nine,which was close enough. :mrgreen:

    Is it all the adrenaline you get from watching a sport with (typically) 2 or 3 goals spread over 90 minutes of mind-numbing tedium?
  • joelsimjoelsim Posts: 7,552
    Yep. Used to love footie/football. Now I hardly ever watch it and have so little interest. Mainly due to not liking anyone involved in it.

    And even more pointless, why do they bother interviewing players after the game? The world's thickest millionaires. You'd get more insight from an average 3 year old.

    Hey, look everyone, a football thread. Let's go onto it to tell everyone that we don't like football. I bet that nobody has ever thought to do that before.

    I mean this in the nicest possible way and don't take it wrong but you are a c*nt Stevo.

    From a humble 'Boro boy to a Chelski season ticket holding Abramovic adoring Morenho shagger. Quite a rise to the top and I bet you only got there by sleeping your way up.

    I haven't got a season ticket, just a 'member' :)

    I bet I'll be even more of a c*** on Saturday afternoon after Arsenal get whupped at Stamford Bridge.

    Might as well make it three times.

    You keep watching prima donnas kicking a bag of wind and i`ll watch something else,like celebrity knitting.

    Here you go:

    http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfre ... g-tv-sport

    Would you watch competitive knitting as a TV sport?

    A Norwegian TV station is airing five straight hours of knitting. The event – covering the process from sheep shearing, spinning and the big finale: the knitting – will document attempts to beat the world knitting record of four hours and 51 minutes. Would you watch it?


    The winners will almost certainly be celebrities in Norway.

    I think we'll find that the footy haters prefer sports that make watching paint drying feel interesting, which is why they're a bit shy in saying what they do like sports-wise.

    Personally I'm having an absolutely cracking afternoon watching Chelsea play Arsenal :lol:

    They're probably egg-chasers.

    I don't like a lot of what surrounds the modern game (£300k/week, wtf?!?!) and I don't like the lack of competition these days, but football is still the second best sport in the world. And that's not an opinion, it's a fact that has been scientifically proven by scientists.

    You want me to name sports,well of course there's cycling,but how about the Olympics,both Summer and Winter knock seven bells of crapola out of football.

    But if you like to watch kids prancing around a field with no concerns about the club and mostly the supporters and who`s only aim is to gain as much money as possible then you go for it.If you find that players earning £300.000 a week is fine then you pay it.You pay Sky then buy the shirts every year,fill their coffers,that's what the football execs want,you indulge them.

    I for one will not pay one single penny towards this censored .I used to love it,i really did,but it took me 50 years to finally wake up.Its a pity everyone doesn't do the same and stop living in fairyland.

    The Olympics isn't a sport, it's an event which people watch every 4 years and then ignore most of the featured sports until... the next Olympics. What will the average attendance be at the next regional athletics meeting or local swimming gala? It's also just as much a corrupt, corporate censored fest as football's World Cup.

    I don't have Sky TV, I only watch what's available on free-to-view, I only occasionally buy football shirts as souvenirs when I visit other cities and I haven't been to watch a professional football match since 2005 - I just go and watch the non-league stuff now. But that's the difference between the game of football and the business of football. I can enjoy the former without falling for the latter, just as I can enjoy cycling despite all of the time that I've wasted in the past watching races which then turn out to have been won by dopers.
