Postby Dee » Sat Jun 11, 2011 7:20 am

Football!! I cant see anyone posting about football! What is wrong with you all ;)
Anyway being as im stopping in IA or until i upset anyone else and get thrown out ;) im going to post about my favourite sport!
Starting with the rare quality that isnt very prominant in this sport today. Roberto Martinez is staying at Wigan!!He decided to not take the Villa job and continue with Wigan. Good on him i say!! :)
Im hoping United (my Team) sign Ashley Young and that the rumours are true that we are close to getting Sami Nasri from Arsenal too!!! :D

There is nothing wrong with us, that's WHY we don't post anything about football.

Football, a gentleman's game played by hooligans where as rugby is a hooligans game played by gentlemen.

Because this country has over the last decade or so become completely pre-occupied with "CELEBRITY"!

Many of these IDIOTS are FAMOUS for being FAMOUS!

Why don't I/we post about Football .Can't really add to much more on the above .It's overrated/overpaid/oversexed/overacted/overexposed and not at all interesting ,whoever thought up that expresion "beutiful game there is nothing beutifull about it they fall down at the slightest breeze and cry if anyone comes near them with a ball they run away if they score(with the other players wife or girlfriend they crow about it ) a goal they act like pratts ,need i say more. Oh and they go for super injunctions but everyone knows anyway so what the point .

Edit
This is wholy my own opinion no one elses .If anyone is offended by my view I do appologise here and now .( no footballs were hurt in this post ).Wrong thread I know but why do i personally like motor racing but hate F1 .Apart from the fact my wifes cousin is designer to McCLaren Reason i don't say much on that thread . It boils down to choice really No one has put up a thread about football but don't ask me why .

Gentlemen, I'm surprised at you. I thought this was a tolerant forum! Why bully and browbeat Dee just because she dares to mention football; that's going to encourage others to speak up, isn't it? It's not the footballer's fault that they are paid so much - you want to win, you pay the money to get the best, although I agree that they are paid silly money. Some would say I am overpaid for pushing a few buttons - but I am good :p
I remember Rugby union players not being paid; the very reason Rugby League was formed, and cricketers being paid a pittance. Now the best of these are multi-millionaires, so it isn't just football. Racing drivers get silly amounts too, but at least footballers (who play for English teams) live in this country and pay taxes, unlike Lewis Hamilton et al, who go and live in Monaco or Switzerland.
If you don't agree with something, it isn't necessary to jump down a person's throat.

Sir, I feel you doth protest too much, Dee asked her question and as a FREE SPEECH FORUM, various people posted their feelings, can't have it BOTH WAYS!

I'm all for people posting their opinions, but I took what you chaps said to be attacking and threatening which I won't tolerate. Your comments weren't meant that way, I know; but it came across that way to me. I disagree with a lot of things that are said on this forum, but i don't get in people's faces about it. Maybe it's the way i was brought up. Maybe it's the way people express themselves.

And if you read back through this thread, every post can probably be taken as light hearted banter or bullying and browbeating, threatening and attacking (your words, not mine). I'd plump for the former!

But, if Dee is offended by anything I have posted I will whole heartedly apologise as that was not my intention nor I would summise that of any of the other posters.

I know why I don't care for football in general. It stems from having a brother 5 years older than me and a father who thought there was nothing else on TV at weekends. Grandstand Saturday afternoons, results late afternoon highlights in the evenings. Sunday Match of the day. It use to drive me crazy. Then of course the mid week games - arghhhhh!!! as a teenager with only one TV in the house as was normal in those days, it's hardly surprising I spent most of my time in my bedroom. :(

As far as what they are paid - supply and demand! I think it's silly money compared to those who are prepared to lay down their life for their own and other countries but that's the way of the world. You can say the same for actors. Doesn't mean I'm right just my opinion.

I love a good game of football. Have been a City supporter all my life thanks to my dad taking me to Main Rd from about the age of four. I agree the players are overpaid but, if someone offered me silly money to do my job I would be daft to say no. Bring on next season Dee ;)

Did anyone see the Womens England match against France yesterday? I only saw the extra time and they looked knackered.

Shame to lose out on penalties again. :(

They made a very good game of it. You are right, it is a shame (as always) to lose on penalties.
