More specific: Which league has the strongest "average" team?
Please post where you're from also.
premier league of course.......:-)
NOT Belgian League for sure. I am conviced that George Best, five days before his death, was still a better socer player than 95% of the losers we have walking about the Belgian green fields.
i go with Premier League
With the Colts and the Bungles it's definitely the AFC. I'm still not sold on the Seahawks.
ehh?? I hope you are joking
La Liga nad Premier League(because of Liverpool and its Spaniards)!
LOL.. actually historically Anderlech was a very good team in europe
But now they seem to loose "chippen". How will they win anything without him...:tongue:
Swedish reading exercise:
Premiere league. GO Man UTd!!!!
I think the teams in the premiership are in general of alot higher quality but La liga is a close second, it is quite a close season so far in spain.
So EL.. when you gonna eat your hat :-)
Actually I'll let you off since your best player (ever?) was playing for Celtic and was rather good :-) bit old now tho, but in his hay day was a a scoring machine.. 242 goals in 315 games.. not bad in any division, shame about 2003 tho :(
I was wondering how long that would take.
Its totally the NFC.
What other league has Vikings as the premiere choke artists?
The scottish league is crap, larsson was pretty good though.
Yeah, Peyton and Dungy are hotties, but it's totally the NFC. I mean, we have the Barber twins and the yonger Manning. And everyone knows the younger brothers are way hotter. So what is everyone else talking about? Succer?
I dunno, but its not football
I bet they aren't insomniacs either. We could so easily steal this thread and make it about real sports like frisbee or beer pong.
Oooooh! I love beer pong. Play with guinness. MMM. Good times. Or play with my personal hard lemonade that consists of 1 part vodka to 3 parts lemonade (I don't want to die from beer pong afterall, otherwise it'd be 1-1). Good stuff.
No, but they are spread over a lot of countries .
When you compare Association football and American football, it is easy to notice that
(i) Injuries are much more probable in American football
(ii) American football is much more expensive
(iii) It's too violent (reminds me of fully armoured tanks battling)
you have a ball and you play with your feet, so football.
I wonder why Americans call American football as football ?
From what I have seen most of the passing and running is done with the ball in the hands. Handball would have been a better name.
i) Yeah, nothing like getting pummeled by 300 lbs(140kg) of linebacker.
ii)Meh, we're gluttonous and wasteful on every other level anyway
iii) Mind you, I'm a rabid Ice Hockey fan. American football is nothing. The Canucks will tell you as much, I'm sure.
As to why its called football, I think it has more to do with the elongated ball. Beyond that, I have no idea.
Huh huh... you said elongated balls.
Meh, I guess it's not the worst thing you could have done with them.
So what should the two sports be called? Handball is no good -- in fact, hand anything is no good. Suggestions? Something ball...
Handball is definitely too tribdog-ish.
Ballhand? Ballfoot? BallSmash? Murder Ball? Mutilation Ball? I got it!! ELONGATED BALL Huh? Huh?!?! Whaddya think?
