  1. kind of funny since this thread is based on an equally closed minded perspective.
     
  2. Then it'll suit you well <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>

    edit: except for that I didn't call anyone closed-minded, but ok.
     
  3. you didnt have to. It was clearly implied.
    I know what youre saying, but it comes down to preference, like many other opinions where both sides call each other closed minded. Its funny how humans work.
     
  4. Superbowl is not the best example of a football game to watch. Normal games have much less downtime.
     
  5. im just voicing my opinion on merkan fut bolle

  7. and I was just voicing my opinion about soccerz and aussie handball.
     
  8. american football is fvcking retarded, like all americans and everything they like.
     
  9.  
  10. and their cars.
     
  11. How can I imply something clearly that I don't imply? I'm saying you typically write from your own perspective, as in, the majority of your comments would be an "I" or "over here" comment. It doesn't equal the same as closed minded. It's like I implied (thus said) a perspective ordeal.
     
  12. american football is fvcking retarded, like all americans and everything they like and their cars.
     
  13. ive watched some national gridiron leaugue matches and some college gridiron matches. 5 secs of play, stop, 5 secs of play, stop, commercial break, hoompapa,hoompapa, shitty mascotte waving, 5 secs of play, stop, 5 secs of play, stop, commercial break etc. etc.

    real shitty.
     
  14. You know your sport is shit when the most talked about thing is either the half time show or the advertisments.
     
  15. Kick, run after ball. Kick, run after ball. Kick, run after ball. Other team kicks, turn around and run after ball. 5 hours later score is 1-0. Fans riot and blow their stupid sounding horns = what everyone talks about.

    Real shitty.
     
  16. Only cool thing in US football is cheerleaders.

    "Super Bowl XLV Most-Watched TV Show Of All Time"

    Yup, you read that right. Not only was Super Bowl XLV the highest rated Super Bowl ever, it was the most viewed television show ever. FOX's broadcast of the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-25 loss to the Green Bay Packers reached a total audience of 162.9 million viewers, making it the most-watched show in U.S. television history according to The Nielsen Company. I suppose I shouldn't sound so surprised that it was the most watched show ever, as Super Bowls now account for the 20 most-watched programs in history in terms of total viewers.

    Most-Watched TV Programs, Total Viewers

    Super Bowl XLV (Packers-Steelers), 2/6/11

    162.9 million

    Super Bowl XLIV (Colts-Saints), 2/7/10

    153.4 million

    Super Bowl XLIII (Cardinals-Steelers), 2/1/09

    151.6 million

    Super Bowl XLII (Giants-Patriots), 2/3/08

    148.3 million

    Super Bowl XXXVIII (Patriots-Panthers), 2/1/04

    144.4 million

    As thrilling as it was to be in attendance last night, there is definitely something to be said for watching football on television. Replays, re-watching certain plays if you have DVR, cheaper food and beverages, and at least when it comes to the Super Bowl, the ability to watch the commercials during breaks in the action -- all are benefits of viewing pigskin games from home rather than at the stadium.

    Speaking of commercials, since i haven't yet seen any of them or had time to really read about which companies hit and missed the mark with their outrageously expensive spots, maybe some of you can help out and let me know which you liked and disliked, which you thought were unique, a waste of money, etc.

    "The 2006 FIFA World Cup Germany had a total cumulative television audience of 26.29 billion (24.2 billion in-home and 2.1 billion out-of-home viewers). This is on a par with the 1998 event, which like 2006 was also staged in Europe, but a little below the 26.4 billion in-home viewers noted for the 2002 FIFA World Cup in Korea and Japan. Unsurprisingly, the most-watched match was the final Italy - France with a global cumulative audience of 715.1 million viewers."
     
  19. All sports suck when you don't understand the subtleties of what's going on. I have trouble watching a whole match of anything that's not basketball
     
  20. I try watching the whole match through, but no matter which, I keep burning my fingers
     
  21. at least we dont have commercial breaks every 2 minutes, stupid cheerleaders and marching bands. and don't forget the mascottes, #$%#ing hate mascottes.
     
  22. The hoompapa hoompapa is what gets to me
     
  23. at least the kicking and running isn't interrupted dozens of times by stopping play to work on "strategy"
     
  24. basketball is also gay. not as bad as football or basebal though.
     
  25. I think watch any sport from TV is gay and boring

    But honestly, watch old person do taiji from TV is more interesting than this "suberball" thing
