Thread: SOCCER SPORT !

    SOCCER SPORT !

    well we have food , beer , music threads started but no dedicated sport thread so far - so feel free to discuss any sport or topical sport related stuff -rant about your own team [not necessary for me as Man City are quite perfect ]- i guess Raza might want to say something about Liverpool's performance [or lack of it ] today -i bet on Crystal Place at 10/3 odds i am even quite prepared to be educated about the mysteries of American Football ! [ particularly the guy who keeps throwing his hankerchief into the ring !!

    College basketball. But I seem to be in the minority with that here so I don't talk too much about it. My team did beat Ray's team Tuesday night, but he's still got his head and heart in football so probably didn't mind as much.

    My Flyers won last night, for a change. So I got that going for me. Just finished watching the Tiger Cats beat the Alouettes for a chance to go to the Grey cup, Calgary and Edmonton are currently battling it out to see who gets to represent the other side of that coin. I'm not a football fan, but it's the playoffs.

    Raptors beat Cleveland last night, which is huge. They are on a real tear this year. Season is still young, but they look great. Also not really a basketball fan, but it's had to avoid right now considering we are in first place.
    It is now my duty to completely drain you.

    As a brit i still can't get exited about Lewis' win today. As a competition F1 is broken, all season there have only been 2 people who could have possibly won it, and that is mostly down to technology and mechanics in their team.

    Yes both Hamilton and Rosberg are great drivers but still there was no competition this year (or last year when Vettel and red bull were unstoppable, and what happened this year).

    The car is the most important factor, and it shouldn't be. Give them all the same car I say, let the best driver win.

    I so wanted Nico to win....

    US Football, the hanky thrower is there to prevent the players from dying of oxygen deprivation which would result in an influx of rugby players into the league.

    I have always wanted to learn about cricket but it gets pretty much no airplay in the states and what does is high dollar pay per view stuff. Thinking about F1 and cricket, I once watched F1 in Canada from the hairpin and could see folks playing cricket in their whites down by the river at the same time. But a Brit didn't win that year it was Fernando, Lewis won the next year (his first win).

    True. The average NFL football game has 11 minutes of action out of the 60 minutes on the clock and 185 minute broadcast time.

    With that being said, I do watch American football occasionally, but I consider myself a rugby man.
