    Looking at a lot of the forum topics, it seems to me that everybody loves football. I have to ask this question, are there any other sports people like besides football? I enjoy golf, swimming, bowling, archery, running, and martial arts.

      Perhaps, but football is the only one I've ever really been able to get into!

    Hey Rookie...

    I agree with you!

    The forum should be filled with more hockey threads... and maybe a little tennis.

    All sports and recreational activities are great to many people, but ultimately people post on the topic they are most interested in at the moment. With the start of the NFL football season, that seems to be the sport/recreational activity that people are most interested in right now, at least in this forum. Whoever wants to post on other topics of their interest certainly should do so rather than wondering why others aren't doing it for them.

    I like playing basketball. I used to play a bit of football, but now I prefer basketball (probably cause I used to suck at football). Also used to enjoy playing cricket. But my favorite sport is......Chess!!!

    No, I am totally against this vial and vicious rumor. I will never understand why people need to come to the forums and insinuate that there are other 'sports'.

    You people should be ashamed and appalled.

    For the record, there is and shall be only ever be one, true sport. That is Australian Rules Football. Period

    Thankyou for playing,

    goodbye

        lol

        Gotta love passion for favoured and particular sports.

        My beloved sport ended today with our Grand Final and neither of the teams in it did I care much for......

        Ah well, always next season......

        So, across the pond, who is the favourite for the Super Bowl this year, or is it too early in the season yet?

          Sorry to hear about beloved sport that ended today  .. and as you had a Grand Final where neither of the teams did you really care for play . ..

          You can live vicariously thru me and help cheer on this future Superbowl Quarterback  along with his team mate, the best defensive cornerback ever!

            wavegirl,

            Calvin Pace, baring any other setbacks (having a broken foot has got to be a real pain, no pun intended) should make his debut against The Vikings on Monday week.

            I shall be keeping an eye on events as they unfold in the NFL smile

    Americans seem to forget about actual football, played with a round ball around the world and is so much better than any sport America will ever create ! you might be able to brand nike and Mcdonalds to the world but you can't with sports!

    I can not understand how the game you call Football got its name, I mean we have Football (Soccer)and Rugby and when I see your Football it is kinder like a cross between the two.  You pick up the ball, run with it and kick it only with a little argy bargy involved too. 

    Personally I prefer Rugby, Golf and a bit of Cricket and Football, that would be your Soccer.

      It got it's name by being played on foot rather than horseback, same as all the other versions of football did. And it's very much a combination of rugby and soccer, since there were variations more similar to rugby and alternate variations similar to soccer played by American colleges beginning late in the 19th century. Eventually, a standardized rule system was adopted that created American football.

        Thanks for that explanation Eyeam4anarchy.  I had always wondered.  Perhaps I should give it a little more attention, I might actually understand the ruling of it and like it then.
