Im sure Tom or someone will berate me but

Postby budhaboy » August 4th, 2012, 1:30 pm

Soccer players are a bunch of overacting pansies- get "tripped", roll around on the ground clutching you shin till the ref feels sorry for your ass and calls a penalty and the you stand up and sprint down the field with nary a limp...like nothing happened...play the game you f'ing overacting queen.

Sometimes when you're burying a guy alive, for a moment or two you start feeling sorry for him. And then it passes and you keep on shoveling...

oh and people with photo signatures suck

Soccer is boring as hell. I'd rather watch paint dry.

I think NBA players are worse.

They're bad, but soccer takes the cake for sure. Those guys go down with the slightest touch, then hold their shin doing the Peter Griffin...

Trying to watch GB vs Korea right now, and not having much luck.
I did figure out what the problem is with soccer though - too many players on the field.
Make it 5 on 5 (plus the two goalies) then you'll have some action. With as many players as it currently has, nobody can
get a pass anywhere, nobody can score - it's quite stupid.

Make them play on an active volcano complete with lava flows!! The amount of players will be greatly reduced on its own.

Yep - maybe a bog with few Nile crocs running around.

No way, they'll fall into the bog and do the Peter Griffin all day :lol:

Crap, same issue with the volcano.

OK OK, how about in an active mine field?

nah, knifes :) The entire thing needs to get a little more stabby and a little less light on the players.

So it turns out the soccer is not the most boring thing on TV right now. :)

Nah, Planet 51 was a cute one. Want Dispicable Me or Bolt or Up, but it was cute. Especially the line about the cork. :lol:

Maybe I am confusing Planet 51 with Plan 9. :)

I agree with the original post. Yeah they have stamina for days, but the whole fake injury bit needs to have them get ejected from the game.

This is the problem with Americans. You've got used to watching games only you play and can't conceive of the idea that with a game that virtually the whole world plays, some countries don't play the game as we'd like. The Latin Americans are renowned for exactly the thing you're talking about Budha. British football fans hate it as much, if not more (seeing as they care about being beaten thanks to this sort of gamesmanship) than you.

Oh, and there is no more boring sport to watch if you don't really understand what's going on than American football. The key bit is the bit in bold, and the same holds true for true football. :P
