General Sports Thread
« on: August 08, 2007, 07:19:34 AM »
Soccer is a nice sport to play, but even better is Handball!! Strong and virile physical contact is allowed, passive gaming is punished, violent or physical threatening actions against opponents are severely punished, when the referee stops the game for some reason the player with the ball most put it on the floor (not throw it to the floor, but put it on the floor) otherwise he is expelled for anti-sports behaviour, etc...

Now that's a game with decent rules!

No, not soccer. Handball!

I have this grading for sports:

Basketball is for wussies - No contact at all allowed
Football is for leg bangers - Contact is allowed but within certain boundaries
Roller Hockey is for stickers - You might find a stick in your face *accidentally*
Handball is for strong arms - Blow the face of an opponent with a bascule movement of the torso (I've done that and it hurts...)
Rugby is for Neanderthals - Let's kick the crap out of them!!!

thats an interesting ranking system val but wheres soccer? sure soccer doesnt seem so violent compared to other sportsbut let me tell u from experience just with one good tackle and you can end a players career and i have seen it happen, plus where i play theres only one referee which means he cant run the whole field so he misses out on calling certain fouls. :deathmask:

He probably uses the European term = Football.
I don't see the link between 'American Football' and 'Leg bangers' anyway :).

I never really understood why American Football is called "Football" anyway - it seems to be mostly carrying around the ball... The only real Football is the European version.

BTW, yesterday the German Bundesliga started into the next season - the opening match was Stuttgart (Champion) vs Schalke (Vice Champion) and ended in a draw, 2:2... http://www.sport1.de/de/sport/artikel_1546932.html

All of them. Football is nice if you know how to play it; Roller Hockey is nice if you have fast eyes to see the ball; Handball is nice if you have the physical mass for it - and this is my favourite.

From the non-physical contact games I go with Snooker.

Oh, and forgot to say that American Football is for wussies too. The real sport - Rugby - is played without all that body armour...

Other rules as well (pe: only allowed to pass backwards).
I never really understood the rules, but a rugby game sure is interesting to watch :).

I know, right? the only thing they do use their feet foor is running and kicking the ball but they only kick the ball like wat, every half an hour? soccer should be called football since its all about using ur feet.

well my favorite sport is soccer (real football), if skateboarding doesnt count xD

Well, in German it is easy - we have Fußball (literally "football") here, and this US thingy is called "American Football" (the English expression). So no need for that word "soccer" here (I really wonder why it had to be called this anyway - "American Football" sure isn't as wide spread as the real football.) ^_^

Shaina, it's Americans.  We have an unending need to complicate things.  It's like, engrained in our natures.  ^^

And I'm not really a sports person.  The only way you get me to an American Football game is when I'm with the marching band.  Soccer/Football is okay, but I don't watch it.
