Ok, I'm sorry but c'mon North Amerca ... WTF is WRONG with you?!
THIS IS NOT SPORT OR ENTERTAINMENT !!
It's like 'action, OK ... 3 seconds, we're done, cut for commercial break'.
Really? When the advertisements that are going to be shown during the premier sprting event are a 'big thing' then something is plain WRONG.
Poor boy Simon. Feeling the need to crap on America again? You might have a little credibility on this subject if you had posted BEFORE the Super Bowl or if you had made your opinion the topic of another thread. Anyone who speaks up now, here on this thread, after the event, is just a punk
Lets forget real football (soccer for you luddites), lets take Cricket. It has more fans than American Football, Basketball, Baseball (OMG, boring !!) and Hockey (not too bad but just 'cause I'm 'Canadian' now and want to live) put together (and then some).
Can't stick to the subject? Is this is just another platform to you to disrespect everything America?
Cricket? CRICKET? CRICKET? Are you serious? Hahaha! The most sissy sport ever invented, and you compare it to the NFL, or even baseball? Hahahaha
So much of the broadcast is just crowds of people milling around on the touchline but not much happening. Show more cheerleaders for christsake!!
"Milling around on the touchline"? Hahahaha
Do yourselves a favor - watch the 6-nations rugby. Forget about taking part for now because you'll get creamed and you can't just claim you won the 'world series' for sports other people play but 40 minutes of non stop action per half will change how you think about sport.
Now you're touting RUGBY?
It's not about padding, or statistics ... it's about passion and action.
Absolutely. You finally got something right
Brits need to stop calling real football "American Football". It's offensive to actual football fans.
The British children's game is called Soccer in every English speaking country except England. Soccer scores are made with the head or the knee or the shin or the ass, as well as the foot. The ball is merely thrown and caught with the hands to set up the kick with a foot because it is more exciting, more accurate and more efficient than daintily rolling it along the ground with the tippy toes like a ballet dancer, which is practically impossible to do when the the other players are allowed to hit you.
God gave real men hands for a reason, and real men are not afraid to get hit. This is why real football fans respect real football players, and regard Soccer players as overgrown children, because soccer is a game designed for children.
Soccer is called soccer because the only gear that soccer players need are padded knee-high socks. Soccer is a stupid name for a sport, but soccer is a stupid children's game anyhow, and no one cares what it's called except Brits. If anything, soccer should be referred to as BODYBALL, TOEBALL, LEGBALL, HEADBALL, ASSBALL or EVERYTHINGBUTTHEELBOWSFOREARMSANDHANDSBALL.
It's no wonder we were able to kick you out of our country 200+ years ago.
Soccer? Cricket? Hahahahaha!
